6/10 Good

Les appréciations sont faites en rapport au prix payé pour la prestation, franchement cher payé. À ce niveau de prix les prestations dans d’autres hôtels sont meilleures , vraiment! L’accueil n’est pas chaleureux , les 2 nuits réveillés de 4 à 7h par les chiens ( bon ça c’est Maurice en général mais bon là vraiment bcp) La nourriture n’est pas exceptionnelle. Désolé mais je suis franc et j’espère cela servira aux clients hô et aussi amélioration pour le patron.

6/10 Good

Very pleasant, but perhaps overpriced
Rooms are pleasant with simple, clean design in muted colours. Bed and pillows are comfortable. I took a standard room and was given room 12-- I think it may be the smallest and least inspiring in the hotel with no view at all. I think/hope other rooms with balconies might have been better. The "beach" is very small. People were laying on sun beds but no one seemed to be swimming. This area seems to be mostly for boat tethering/launching. The pool was also quite small. The casual restaurant is very pleasant, with a view right on the water Nice non-alcoholic drinks (not all sweet) and a fun tapas menu. Guests can easily walk to the main road which has restaurants and some shops within one or two km. I highly recommend nearby Bistrot de la Poste restaurant--- one of the best meals I had in Mauritius. Overall, I enjoyed this hotel. It's not really a beach hotel, more of an urban hotel on the water's edge, but after days at secluded resorts, I liked having an adjacent neighbourhood to explore. However, I do feel my stay was not worth the over 200 USD I paid. As mentioned above, my room had no view. Amenities in the room were very basic: no face cloth/towel, no lotion, no beauty kit with cotton pads etc. And the vibe killer for me was the fact that they charge $20 (90 rupees) for each cup of coffee that guests make FOR THEMSELVES in their room. It's not about the money, but it's in bad taste to charge for such a thing when the guest has paid so much for the room.

Das Hotel, von der Bauart bis zur Einrichtung, war einfach nur wunderschön! Mit nur 22 Zimmern und einer kleinen aber feinen Poolanlage. Das Personal war ebenfalls sehr aufmerksam und freundlich und hat den Urlaub perfekt abgerundet.

bon petit hotel, bien placé, propre, seul bémol, les chiens errants et du voisinage qui aboient une bonne partie de la nuit.
