TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:
We had a brilliant holiday here. We were a couple, a 2 yr old and a 5 month old baby. We stayed in a deluxe room altogether which was very good and large. Its not ultra modern but it's not bad in... Read more any way. The bed was comfortable. The room was clean and the housekeeping was good. The food is very good to excellent in every restaurant and room service. We went all inclusive and the included wines we drank every night and were good. We used the main buffet restaurant the most dinner, and we most often went to 'The Beach' restaurant for lunch from which the view is stunning and so fun for everyone to watch the seaplanes, waterskiers, sailing boats, kayaks etc. But all the restaurants were very good and you can have the kids menu (which is very good) in any plus highchairs. The Banyan restaurant is a very beautiful location outdoors to have lunch. I could say so much but I just wanted to write this for other parents with babies and small children. So: On the first day I asked to speak to the chef personally. He wrote down a list of fruits and vegetables I gave him that my baby could eat (as he wasn't yet 6 months) and then 3 times a day they would bring a puree to whichever restaurant we were eating in (or our room). They really took this seriously and it was incredibly easy to organise... they sought me out to ask me questions about his food, and I never had to chase them at all! On one occasion I sent a puree back as I was being ultra cautious and didn't want to feed him melon yet... they changed it more than happily and quickly. They made each meal fresh. Another really useful thing that isn't clear from the website...both swimming pools have between them a total of 3 very shallow areas that toddlers can stand and play in. Also both beaches are fine and not rocky for toddlers to play in. We used a babysitter nearly every night who has been working with the hotel for 6 years. She was excellent and this was organised very easily through reception. It's quite expensive... but not astronomical. (Her name was Jocelyn.) The staff and service was excellent and they are all amazing with children. I could write all day about good things about this hotel but I have to run soon! All we did was use the pools and beach and restaurants so I can't comment on anything else really. . Finally... we thought it was priced right and good value. We went for 10 nights. We would definitely visit this hotel again Read less
We recently sent a week at the Lux Grande Gaub and enjoyed a very relaxing week doing not very much at all. The hotel is very comfortable with good sized and well equipped rooms, the food in the... Read more restaurant is superb and the beach is everything that you could hope for. However it is all the staff that makes the hotel stand out. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble (Selven in the bar was a particular standout and was especially welcoming). Read less
My husband and I have just returned from a 12 night stay at the Lux Grand Gaube in Mauritius. I had spent a lot of time reviewing various resorts in Mauritius before booking this hotel for our... Read more anniversary. From the moment we arrived till the minute we left the staff were simply outstanding. As it was a special occasion, the customer relations staff had upgraded us to a junior suite which was simply stunning. The resort is beautifully situated in a sheltered bay looking out towards the northern islands. The room was gorgeous and had a lovely terrace. Each night our pillows were scented at turndown and we were given handmade soap scrub as a lovely extra touch. We had decided to go all inclusive and we would definately recommend this. Unlike so many other resorts, all inclusive at the Lux does not confine you to just the buffet restaurant (although the food there was the best buffet food I have had anywhere in the world). We were able to eat in the other restaurants from their a la carte with no extra cost. I am vegetarian and if there wasn't anything to my liking or I had had it before, the chefs simply made me whatever I wanted. Shimla in the main buffet restaurant always looked after us in the morning, whilst Jeanne Phillipe at the beach was a fabulous host. The beach bar is the hub of the hotel and the staff there are the most friendly and efficient of any staff we have met on our travels all over the world. Selven is an absolute gentleman and ensured our every whim was catered for, whilst Gloria and Naiken are always smiling and just want to make sure they are doing everything they can to make your holiday perfect. We spent lots of time enjoying snorkelling and diving and the staff at the boathouse are really informative and knowledgeable. We had a fantastic dive at nearby Gunners Coin Island. A highlight of our holiday was the cooking lesson we had with Chef Nedege. My husband and I love cooking and cooking in the herb garden followed by a lovely lunch outside was something we will never forget. Chef was just terrific and we learned so much from her. Definately try to book a lesson if you are visiting. We had never experienced anything like that before. And that is the ethos of this resort. It is different from any other place we have visited because the staff really do care about you enjoying yourself. All the little thoughtful extras - the pillow scents, soaps, amazingly comfortable beds, cooking lessons, star gazing, cinema under the stars; it's not just a holiday - it's the experience of a lifetime. So much so that we are already planning our next visit - thank you Lux Grand Gaube - we miss you guys! Read less
Alex, my husband, and I spent 10 nights at this resort last November (2012). We were so impressed with the resort and all of its staff that we decided to take our daughter, son and their partners... Read more this year. Infact our 2 best friends also joined us so in total we were 8 and took 4 rooms. We stayed 12 nights this time and were not disappointed. The resort is paradise. The rooms were immaculate, thanks to Cousay, lovely man. We went for breakfast every morning to the Kitchen restaurant which was very good and so very fresh. We saw Sandren every morning and throughout the day at the bar. He also made our holiday so extra special. Such a nice man. Anvrid (hope I've spelt that right) made our special cocktails, he was superb! All the bar staff were so nice and couldn't do enough for us. Our favorite restaurant was the Beach, headed by Jean Philipe, who was just lovely. Nothing was too much trouble even being a company of 8. We did 3 boat trips with Captain Tom (all different) and so worth doing. We all had a blast and Tom was so accommodating. Thank you so much Tom, you are great. The beach crew, headed by Reedoo are fantastic. Kumar and Jordi are just amazing. They walk up and down that beach all day making sure everyone is served and has everything they want. Then we come to Reedoo, what a star! The master! The one and only who goes out of his way to make your holiday WOW! He did exactly that. Thank you Reedoo x. Also thankyou to the general manager who helped us make fun for our kids on their arrival. Thankyou, we all had a fab time. See you next year!!! Nicola and Alex Read less
