In general, a nice hotel with a lovely swimming pool and water activities plus a friendly boat house. The service is excellent. During our stay we were especially impressed with all the staff at the restaurants, bar and animation. The chefs at Dolphin and Pink Peppercorn restaurant were great, too. We didn't try the other restaurant. Most of the staff is very forthcoming, and try everything to make your stay memorable. But like other reviews have pointed out, the atmosphere is somewhat heavy and staff appears a little overworked, which would be not their fault, of course, but a management issue. We found some of the hotel's policies a little questionable. For example I've booked and paid the price for a double-room for 2 people on half board, but ultimately my sister couldn't join and I occupied the room on my own. After some days they've stopped providing a second small bottle of water in the room and in reply to me questioning that saving-measure's correctness, the receptionist replied: "But you're just one person!" Really now...? To me and my experience in hotels so far, including a lodge I was managing myself, this would have come natural, without having to ask twice. Other than that service was mostly really good. For the few people who come to Mauritius for swimming in the ocean, be aware that the beach and water in front of the resort are not ideal for swimming. There are many dead corals, murky water (due to a river nearby) and it's very shallow. While swimming is possible, you will have to be extremely careful, as you won't be able to clearly see the ground under you. That being said, if you're a non-swimmer, and prefer the pool anyway, this may not be an issue at all.
