We were anxiously waiting for the refurb to finish so we could visit this place. This was our 3rd trip to Mauritius and am sure many more to follow. We had stayed previously at the Four Seasons which was fantastic but this hotel is also fabulous. Albeit smaller than the Four Seasons but also lovely. The service was absolutely fabulous. From the start where you are greeted by management and who are always visibly around during your stay. Everyone remembered our names and the children felt so special. There is a disparity between the ‘old’ staff vs the new ones, however am sure the issue will be resolved. The food was great. The Prime restaurant was one of the best I’ve been to. And their specialty steak was surreal. The Asian fusion was ok and from speaking to repeating guests the Indian restaurant they had before was sorely missed. It would have been nice to have a Mauritian/Indian restaurant especially since we are visiting Mauritius and it’s their forte. The beach is spectacular and the water sport facilities were great. We did many activities and thoroughly enjoyed them all. The pool was a little disappointing and I hope they will build a further one to suit families/more people. For the size of the resort, the pool is small and sun loungers sparse. Spa was amazing as expected. One of the best massages I’ve had and they kindly did my daughter’s nails which was a sweet touch and she was thrilled about. We will definitely return one day soon! Read less

Our group of 4 had mostly good feelings about this resort. We visited to spend the afternoon away from our cruise ship. We enjoyed the lunch very much. both the quantity and the quality were very good. We took a swim in the pool and it was lovely. The only quibble we had was that the beach had a row of quite sharp shells where the surf meets the sand. My wife cut her foot while wading out for a swim. We were also bothered by people who approached us to sell vastly overpriced bathing suits and cover-ups. Even after we said no, they kept coming back to bargain. No means no, but no one from the resort appeared to move them away. Read less

We spent ten nights in a JuniorSuite facing the ocean (2 adults, one 6 year old). Everything was not only good but perfect, the degree of service is absolutely outstanding!!! The whole Crew is probably the most experienced, most frienldy on the island (some staff is there for +25 years!!) and will do everything to make this an unforgettable experience for you and your loved ones. The location on the peninsula is simply stunning with the hotel facing both the ocean and the lagoon, allwoing you to switch sides in case of strong winds. The Gym, KidsClub, pools and all other facilities are in top condition, boathouse and minigolf are right behind the hotel. BTW golf: The PGA-EuropeanTour Legend Golf Course is only 5 minutes away, so grab a club and hit some balls if you want to. The overall 5 restaurants are superb, we loved to spent times in the other restaurants than the buffet one (la terrasse); Tapasake was our absolute Favourite and is located next to the boathouse (overwater restaurant). Incredible, georgous, beautiful, we loved it and will be coming back! We highly recommend this place to anyone, yes it´s pretty expensive (as everything which is good in this world) but it´s worth every single cent you pay . Read less

To put the review in context I have stayed in many wonderful hotels around the World. The One & Only Le Saint Geran ranks among the best. I was a little nervous having read a number of reviews. I need not have worried. I will be brief: 1. Service. Extraordinary. A perfectly balanced mix of friendliness and professionalism with real sincerity. From the cleaning staff to the management, the service was consistent and virtually faultless.It certainly felt that there were more staff than guests. 2. Location/beach: Beautiful. No doubt one of the best locations in Mauritius. Do not expect the perfect blue clear seas of the Seychelles or the Maldives however. 3. Food. Generally excellent. Having sampled all the restaurants on a number of occasions, the negative reviews I have read are surprising. Prime was my favorite and was consistently excellent. The buffet was varied and again the food generally of a very high standard. 4. Gym/Club One. Like nothing I have ever seen in a hotel. Brand new. Has the feel of an exclusive sports club. The equipment in the gym rivals any gym in or outside a hotel. 5. Spa. Very good. Beautiful pool. Cost of treatments: very high and higher than I have paid elsewhere. 6. Kids Club (I have 2 children aged 3 and 6). Almost defies belief. My children are not always that enthusiastic but here they insisted on going. The kids club was free. The staff wonderful and warm (as many staff as children it would seem) and the activities were varied and a lot of thought had gone into them. 7. Cost of drinks/food etc. High (probably unjustifiably so) but predictable and not the highest I have experienced. 8. One negative: there are not enough loungers by the pool. This is a consequence of half the seating space taken up by Cabannas that you need to book (and pay £200 a day min spend) to use. Most were vacant when I was there. As a matter of principle I do not want to pay extra to sit by the pool and I shouldn't have to. This is not a huge problem because there are ample loungers on the beach which is immediately adjacent to the pool areas. All in all: superb. Read less

Stayed there during my honeymoon, and for sure it was one of the best hotels of my entire life. The food was awesome, specially the breakfast and tapasake restaurant. (Prime one is good but overpriced). And the hotel service is perfect, as the whole structure. Room was clean and big. The spa is very good either, the gym is really new and with lots of options. Of course this hotel is a little pricey, but since you are in the island in the middle of nowhere, is worth it. Wish to come back one day. Read less
