Also have to advise you that July is not the best of times to visit Mauritius - it's the equiviment of their winter. I think the temps will be in the low 70's but not much higher - will also be more likely to have rain. I asked my friend if I should go in July a while ago and she said it was 'risky'. The best time to go is Nov - March. You could of course have great weather , it's just a bitmore of a risk.
Spotlessly clean and tidy.
The food was Great, Providing a large selection form burgers to lovely sea food,currys, you name it they did it.
Is was very good for the kids also.
We went all in and loved it...Even the beer was good.
The only thing we found you could not have from the pool bar/grill was lobster but we had it and paid arroun £12 not bat at all Yum Yum
All the local spirits and beers were good. form the pool bar and resteraunt.
I cant praise this hotel enough!!
They are very helpfull and friendly... GO THERE ITS ACE!!!
we went in may 2003 the air temp was 29 C and the water was 30C!!

Many thanks to you if you can help with the above questions.
Me and my family are planning on going to Mauritius in December..Has anyone been there? Whats it gona be like in terms of weather? Will there be alot of people, as its christmas period? We are thinking of going for about 10 nights an then stoping over in Dubai, as we enjoy going with Emirates.
Ive seen the prices and they are expensive!! When would be the best time to book? We are thinkning of HB/AL/FB?? we are a group of 4 adults
I used to work in travel and i'd say yes it will be busy if you're planning on travelling over the xmas period - anywhere offering good weather is. I'd look at all inclusive as i've been told that Mauritius is pretty expensive, particularly alcohol.
We're also visiting Dubai and flying with Emirates so i'll add a review when i've been.
When you say it will be busy..will the beaches be packed and will it be like fighting for a space everywhere?
Hey hope you have a good time....and cant wait to read the review
We came back from Dubai in April, we had a 4 night stop on the way back from Thailand. If you are wanting shopping rather than beach stay in the city. We had to travel 45 mins everytime and only sat round the pool/beach for 1 hour as we had done that in Thailand. It would have been cheaper and more central in the city. Recommend Wild Wadi water park, Adventure Tours 4 x 4 trip called Sundowner, absolute must. Good shopping City Centre Mall and take a look at the supermarket. Good food here also and bowling and cinema
Emirates were very good and Dubai duty free is very cheap
Down side? - yep 11 hours scum class overnight with BA - next time we will save another k and go business - it was hell.........
I am considering going to Mauritius in June/July but am unsure about the weather, I understand that it is their winter, but when i look at temperature charts it still seems to be warm.
Has anyone been this time of year??
Went to Mauritius in 2002 around the Trou De Douce area. we stayed in an All Inclusive hotel and it was a weekly turnaround for the menu, as this wasn't very good we ventured out for a number of meals to the local restaurants. Found most of them to be very reasonably priced, and the food very good. They were definitely cheaper than the UK. The most expensive aspect of the meal will be your drinks.
Went into Grand Baie and also Port Louis a couple of times, and it's the same old situation, where eating on the main drags is far more expensive than the back streets.
