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.
Good facilities, professional and friendly staff, quiet location...great to chill out but not if you want to party! Food choice was adequate. Comfortable, air conditioned room, just a stone's throw to beach area. All in all, excellent value for money, with adequate wi-fi signal throughout complex. Limited parking spaces outside should you hire a car. A few local restaurants within a mile radius.
This hotel is exceptionally well priced. Staff is friendly. Our room was neatly done over and flowers were arranged on arrival. Cleaning was done every day. Food was also excellent and well priced.
Can definitely recommend this hotel.
A great trip all in all. Its no comparison to the 5 stars on the island, but if your going for a cheaper budget, wanting a smaller place, this beats any standard hotel, hands down. The views from the room make it. Food average. Staff really friendly. A package holiday vibe with a great location.
The hotel is right next to the beautiful Mont Choisy beach. Facilities are good, they also have some water activities specifically for hotel guests. Rooms are ok, breakfast spread is also good. Overall, good experience
