Firstly, pictures were advertised that the suite we booked was on the beach . As in from your suite you open the sliding doors and it led down to the beach. We expected that as that’s what was sold to us. When we arrived that wasn’t the case. Our room was upstairs. So that was disappointing. The beach was strange as the beach sand was hard not soft like other beaches and the sea wasn’t clear. Check-in was also not a great experience. We were told to wait for 3 hours as our room wasn’t ready. We had just flown an international flight with a baby so didn’t sleep well and then told we had to wait for 3 hours wasn’t nice at all. I then asked for somewhere to change my baby and to breastfeed. Not a nice welcome for guests that have traveled from far. The swimming pool was very dirty. I saw green algae in it. The staff were the worst, there were literally only 3 staff members that were nice to us or should I say just normal to us. The rest were so appallingly rude. One particular staff told us off in front of other guests because we took a table at lunch that had an extra chair. Unacceptable!! I am in the customer service industry and this is not acceptable at all! At the buffet which was breakfast, lunch and dinner, the staff just had to serve drinks however the attitude was so rude. We got to the point of being quite apprehensive to ask for drinks. The hotel really needs to look into training their staff. A lady , I’m assuming a manager did approach me when we were having breakfast on our last day however I didn’t feel it was the right time and it was the last day so not much she could of done. We really looked forward to this trip as it was my 40th birthday and a holiday however this resort let us down major! Read less

we stayed at the preskil island resort for two nights in November, there was 8 people in our party. We found the check in to be very straightforward and things just got better from there. Askhay was extremely helpful and showed us to our room. He also sorted out a golf cart for my mother in law who struggles to walk far. The bell boys were also very helpful and made sure our luggage got to our room. It was my mother in laws birthday and the director of the hotel, Vincent, went above and beyond to help us book dinner reservations and to get a cake sorted out for her. The head chef in the restaurant was also very helpful. As a party of 8 we asked him if he cold make us a pizza for our table and he was very accommodating. Housekeeping was also very good, if we needed more water, pop, or soap etc it was brought pretty much straight away to the room, no matter what the time. The grounds of the hotel are very clean and the beach was beautiful, i would highly recommend a trip on the glass bottom boat, which is included with your all inclusive booking, The guide we had was fantastic! The food in the buffet and the mosaic restaurant was very good and the cocktails and drinks were very nice. We are already looking forward to our next visit!! Read less

Hotel is just wow. The refurbishment is a complete success. Well appointed rooms. Availability of sanitisers everywhere. Notices to ask guests to wear masks are present in most common areas. However, it is noted that some foreign guests do not adhere to same. Staff is courteous and helpful, though they don't interact much with Mauritian guests. Buffet needs improvement as it does not reflect the flavoursome taste and blend of spices that characterise the Mauritian cuisine. Variations are repetitive. Desserts are not worth a 4* standard. The AI package is limited and they need to rethink this formula to identify guests on the AI package. Have to constantly sign bills is a cumbersome process. Read less
