We wanted a week of complete relaxation and that's exactly what we got at Le Recif. Our room was on the first floor above the swimming pool and we were a bit concerned that there might be a lot of noise. There was none. Our room was very nice and well maintained by the staff. We used to get a beer at the small local supermarket to drink on the balcony after a day sunbathing and swimming. It was a good way to try out local beers. For everything else we used the hotel bar. The bar and restaurant were good. The food was varied, very tasty and plentiful. We ate one night at the upstairs restaurant and enjoyed that very much. The wine in the restaurant was fairly average and as we'd just come from South Africa, it also seemed very expensive - but no more so than in Britain. The watersports were great fun and the boys at the boat house were very helpful and supportive (for first time water skiers!). The staff of the hotel were wonderful. Everyone from the manager who met us on arrival to the guard at the gate, was friendly and helpful. This hotel was a great find and gave us exactly the holiday we wanted.
We stayed at hotel Emeraude, Room 202, in June 2014.
We stayed for ten days, and we had friends nearby.
Hotel Emeraude is on the east coast of Mauritius, and is ideally situated for those wishing for the benefit of Mauritian beaches.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with fresh cold drinks by hotel staff, which was nice. I enjoyed the continental breakfasts each day. We chose for half board as we would be seeing our friends quite a lot of the time.
The hotel staff were very friendly, and the manager was frequently on site, and very friendly. The hotel has two swimming pools, a games room with pool, and a great cocktail bar. There is also a spa. The beach is connected to the main belle mare beach, but the section in front of the hotel is for guests only, and is well maintained. We particularly enjoyed the free glass bottom boat and snorkelling trip from the hotel's diving centre; plenty to do.
Our stay coincided with the 2014 world cup, and we watched a few games in the bar, on a large projected screen.
We intend to use this hotel again; the level of quality service we experienced is among the best we gave had.
This hotel is well situated close to bars shops and restaurants. Public transport is nearby and the beach is literally across the road!
The rooms are well appointed clean and have nice views from most balconies. The hotel staff are excellent hard working and courteous.
The pool and gym facilities and spa are good and the hotel bar is great if you don't fancy going too far!
The buffet style breakfast and dinner offer a very good choice and excellent themed meals. There are a lot of restaurants and cafés in Flic En Flac so there are no problems with lunch, The Bougainville and Maffiozo are highly recommended.
All excursions can be booked from just outside the hotel in the Pasadena complex, and Quatre Bornes, Port Louis and Cascavelle shopping centre are only short bus rides away!
The best advice for changing money is to do it at the airport or exchange services in Mauritius you will get a far better rate than changing before you leave, also better and quicker than the banks!
We are looking forward to visiting the Aanari Hotel again very soon!
