We stayed at the Paul et Virginie for our honeymoon and had the best 14 days and nights. The hotel was beyond what I had expected. The setting was beautiful, the food at the hotel was delicious and varied. The staff go out of their way to make sure everyone is looked after. We especially had great service from Ankit who looked after us so well and from Danny whose evening programme was so entertaining. Both these members of staff went over and above to look after the guests at the hotel. The hotel has a great location with fantastic views, there is so much to do - canoeing, paddle boards, pedaloes and snorkelling. The catamaran trip from the hotel was great fun and the staff who ran this trip were so informative and made the day so much fun. Read less

The location is beautiful and communal areas of the hotel are extremely clean and well looked after. To name but a few of the staff who cared for us so well during our stay, Visam was fabulous at the bar and Ankit is fantastic at customer service-nothing was ever too much trouble for him, and we were always greetly warmly and with a smile. The food and drink was plentiful and the rooms are all close to the beach and pool. Thank you all for a fabulous stay! Read less

We stayed at the Paul et Virginie for 2 weeks on our honeymoon. We were both impressed with the service that we received from all of the staff. Dany, the entertainment manager, provided a really good mixture of entertainment for each night and really got everyone involved. All the food was fantastic and plentiful, with a wide range of different cuisines. There are plenty of activities to do from the beach. You can wind surf, snorkel, canoeing and use the pedalos. If you venture outside of the resort, I would recommend the speedboat excursion! It’s a full day out with dinner and drinks included. We had a helicopter trip too, which we took from Triolet, with Corail helicopter trips. It’s a bit pricey, but well worth it and you see a lot of the island with beautiful views from above. As it was our honeymoon, we booked the superior room, which gave a beautiful view over the beach front. Our room was lovely, but the only negative thing I can say about the room is that toilet and a very small. The bathroom was more than adequate though. Comfy beds with excellently cleaned rooms everyday. We even had a sea creature created with new towels on our bed everyday! I would recommend the Paul et Virginie. We thought it was wonderful!

Had a 10 night stay here & it was amazing. If you like beautiful views, attentive staff & smaller complexes this is definitely the place to stay. We prefer smaller quieter hotels over the big complexes which can be busy & noisy so this hotel met all our hopes & more. The staff were so friendly & helpful.

We prefer smaller quieter hotels over the big complexes which can be busy & noisy so this hotel met all our hopes & more. The staff were so friendly & helpful. They work so hard to make your holiday perfect. The food was all delicious & to a high standard, we liked the varied nights of buffet or table service. There are lots of free water sports & always seemed to be available. All the rooms have sea views & it really is a stunning view to waken too. There really is not any fault we could find with the place so would highly recommend. Read less

10 days of pure indulgence. A small child free hotel where all the staff new your name and greeted you with a sunny smile at anytime of day.

10 days of pure indulgence. A small child free hotel where all the staff new your name and greeted you with a sunny smile at anytime of day. From the moment we arrived we were spoilt and not allowed to lift a finger. We upgraded to the Privilege room so we ate in the al a carte restaurant most evening. Food was wonderful and the service outstanding. We had a lovely day out on the catamaran, made special by the entertaining crew and enjoyed a couple Mauritian massage in the spa. After just a few days we forgot the day of the week and that’s our marker for how good the holiday is. Read less
