( Private taxi one way....1700 Rupees.....if arranged by hotel it maybe more) Both check in and check out was efficient....staff were very helpful and friendly.....especially Sunil who accommodated us at short notice at Aqua Restaurant. The food and the entertainment at this restaurant was very good! The rooms were very modern especially the bathroom..... We were on a half board meal plan...there was a wide selection for both breakfast and dinner, .....dependent on your preference and taste Read less

Lets start with the positiv: - perfect House Reef for snorkeling - food better than expectet, especielly the local treats. The desserts was on very High level - room cleaning was 5 Star level - early check-in and late check-out was provide when we asked - service from some of the staff, like the guy that help us to put gas on our car or nearly everybody at the bar and the restaurant. They was fast, helpfull and Seem to enjoy theire work. - very nice that we could use Azuri restaurants and facilitets - seclude Beach with no other hotels nearby, plenty of space and nice walks on the Beach The not so good things was: - the service level from some of the staff, mostly from reception. As an exampel it was impossibel to get an iron and a iron board. Had to ask several times but never received both. A dinner reservation on another hotel was also impossibel, everything was booked but then I wrote myself and Got the reservation. Other simpel stuff you would expect from 4 Star hotel was also difficult and nearly always I had to ask several times. - very vindy and strong current, for more easy beaches, I would recommend the Beach at Belle Mare. - some Times there where no clean Beach towels, then we where told to come back later. Over all we Can recommend the hotel, the biggerst suprise was that the Beach are a little rough so if it is important for a quiet sand Beach, then get a hotel in Belle Mare but if like snorkeling, then this hotel is perfect!

We stayed for 5 days all inclusive and loved it!! The staff is so friendly and helpful! From the evening that we arrived until the very last minute when we left. The staff really go out of their way to be helpful and friendly. It was our wedding anniversary and we had the most special 3 course dinner at no extra cost with campagne plus our waiter made our evening by speaking a few words in our home language!! Daniela at reception is so amazing, she was REALLY helpful. Assisted us by booking an excursion as well as a photographer for a photoshoot and everything we required help with. Unfortunately the food in the main restaurant wasn’t always our taste but it could be because we are not use to it. Unfortunately the soft drinks at aqua in the evenings wasn’t good at all but everything else was good. We also had the most amazing full body massage at the spa and it was worth every cent!! Loved the scenery at the hotel and the shuttle between the hotels, as well as the live entertainment every evening! I LOVED staying at Raddison Blu Poste Lafayette!!! Read less

We stayed at the hotel all inclusive for just under two weeks and we loved every minute. The staff bent over backwards to ensure you are comfortable, happy, relaxed and enjoying your time in Mauritius. The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic and was very chilled. The food in the all inclusive buffet as well as the restaurant was 5 star every breakfast, lunch and evening meal. Our room was always clean and tidy when we returned from being at the beach, pool or out on tours thanks to housekeeping, who were always very polite, attentive and friendly. The bed was comfortable and the room has all of the amenities required. The beach is absolutely beautiful. It has white soft sand under foot and a bit further from the shoreline there is a coral reef and sea grass which is home to many different types of fish and two types of turtles. The hotel provide snorkelling equipment to use free of charge which is a must when staying at the hotel. The beach is pristine and I would recommend staying at the hotel also for this reason. Big shout out to all of the waiting staff and management for being so friendly, helpful and attentive. You are all absolutely fantastic. We will be back! Read less
