LE TOUSSEROK HOTEL MAURITIUS: a stunning hotel on this stunning island.
The hotel is large, sprawling with loads of beach space, and very beautiful and well maintained. It is a very stunning location and property.
The rooms are fantastic. We were in a Junior Suite in the Hibiscus section (which I would recommend over Coral and Hibiscus as has access right onto the nicer beach). Big room, comfortable beds, large bathroom with bath, shower room and toilet room. Huge cupboard with loads of space and hangers. Balcony. Ipod station. Turn down service. Really great with great view onto the beach and sea.
Staff are friendly and welcoming.
Free wired broadband in the room (which could be slow at times) and free wireless in reception.
The hotel owned islands which they run free boats to every 20 minutes. The “relaxation” one is especially amazing, with lovely beach, swimming and good restaurant. The Ile aux Cerfs is where all the sports are. The beaches at the main resort are also good, and loved the 3 pontoons you could swim and relax on.
The pools, including one next to the spa which is for over 16s only.
The food. Although a buffet for breakfast and dinner, the food is excellent and varied. I was very impressed.
The gym. Modern and well equipped. The spa seems very expensive.
Children, Children. Children..especially young ones screaming all through meals. You need to not be the type that kids annoy you! Amazing how many were there for the time of year which ruined meals mostly with screaming and buggies.
The hotel attracts a lot of couples with babies, especially just out of the main school holiday periods. As the hotel does not have a family dining room or area, they are dotted about and every single meal involves screaming children. It seems the hotel attracts couples who don’t mind their children screaming and intruding….. I think the hotel, as also a magnet for couples and honeymooners, could easily have a family dining room or area – or have a family dining time and then slightly later child free one.
The non-inclusive restaurants (Safran and barlens) are good but very expensive. Even with the credits if you eat there instead of the dining room.
Overall though we loved it..
