Excellent resort, location & staff
Posted 4 Apr 2017
Maia is an outstanding resort! We arrived and were taken directly to our villa by golf cart for check in. The staff receiving us were very nice and included the butler for our villa, Gabriel. Maia villa's include a butler who takes care of most aspects of your stay. Our butler, Gabriel was outstanding! We have stayed at our resorts that include butlers, but Gabriel was top notch!
The villa (209) was very nice, private and very comfortable. We choose to have dinner in our villa dining area most nights as the view was great and we were looking for a more private experience while celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Gabriel took care of our meals and was there when we needed him, but was off in the distance or tending to the room for night turn down.
The food was outstanding, lots of variety to chose from. Gabriel arranged a special dinner (not on the menu) which was red snapper baked in a salt crust, it was the best tasting fish and a lovely dinner. We did eat in the restaurant for most breakfasts and one dinner. It is nice as well with view of the ocean and pool area. They do play music and while a small resort you can find others if you want to socialize.
Gabriel also helped us arrange tours, we did the helicopter tour to Praslin & LaDigue, which was a great once in a lifetime experience. Gabriel was always there to see us off and there when we returned. And he made us special drinks each day. Maia lives up to their whatever, whenever, wherever motto!
