The island is really picturesque and has a good balance of relaxation and sight seeing."

Another great reason for booking with Holidayplease. "

The hotel was very clean, the food was lovely in the a la carte resturant, we only ate at the buffett resturant twice but did not like it so much as there wasnt a lot of things we liked. There was evening entertainment every night. It was a nice and relaxing holiday and would go again"
"Laid back, nice people. Restaurant close at 2230, and take aways, like Mcdonalds close by 2100. Flight was long and probably the worst part by far."

"There is so much to do in Mauritius, it is the perfect combination of a beach holiday with lots of sightseeing, under-sea walking, shopping, culture, dolphin watching and a whole range of water sports!"
"We stayed all inclusive - but not at one of the 'exclusive' resorts. The staff treated their guests like family and were helpful, but not intrusive. Balcony faced away from the sun and it would have been nice to have a quiet couple of hours at the end of the day sitting out there with a cold drink and a book - that was our only 'slightly downside'. We loved it!"
"Both very safe and welcoming"
"We had a fantastic time in a lovely hotel and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We attended a friend's wedding which took place on the beach and was extremely romantic. Mauritius is definitely a place to recommend!"
