Excellent 5* resort
Excellent family stay; chef team was brilliant and catered for our very specific vegetarian meal needs throughout our 11 days stay over Easter 2022. The rooms were fantastic and well set on a beautiful coral beach. Highly recommend this resort- having stayed at others on the Island previously.

6/10 Good

Нужно тщательней отбирать персонал
Сам отель приятный, большие виллы, ухоженная территория. Пляжа можно считать что нет, но это особенность острова. Большой (но достаточно холодный) бассейн. Ресторан работал только буфет. Причем один из дней все было норм, на второй персонал испортил все впечатление, которое только возможно. Час ждали вино, час. Еду, естественно, всю съели к моменту когда принесли. На каждую (каждую!!!) позицию в винной карте говорили этого нет. Через час принесли совсем не то, что заказывали. Позднее выяснилось, что вино есть, если у вас другой официант. Полчаса ждали капучино. Не дождались. В счет сначала включили, потом убрали, но сказали, что на комнату нельзя записать, платите наличными. Потащили разбираться на ресепшн, где выяснили, что забыли что-то прописать в системе. Извинений никто тоже не принес. История о том, как конкретные люди могут испортить отдых, на острове был еще Sofitel, но после этого отменили поездку туда и выбрали другую сеть. В общем для нас из примерно 8 отелей на маврикии этот оказался самым неудачным. А жаль…

10/10 Exceptional

An excellent resort. It would be difficult to find anything to criticise about the So Sofitel. There is something of the Tatooine (Star Wars) about the appearance of the single story accommodation, laid out in the beautifully maintained gardens of the site. Being right on the edge of the beach, the sound of the waves breaking on the coral reef of the lagoon, provided a lovely background. The food was excellent and the staff extremely attentive. Absolutely no complaints there! Brenda, Raj and the whole staff are to be congratulated on providing a first class holiday resort.
