Honestly, everything was perfect: excellent room with sea view upper floor as wished; excellent organisation; excellent food: congratulations to the cook for all his dishes -among other, his ability to use local vegetables in salad, often sliced, and warm; kindness of thin Mélanie for any help (newspapers...) ; sympathic show of Sega dances on the beach to reward all of us to be negative after one week;excellent wifi as at home; excellent aircond; TV cardio exercises to remain in good shape; to be honest, taking moreover in consideration that health costs (3 PCR) were included, the ratio quality / price was a must. I cannot imagine what I could have had for double price (at least for a room... not to talk of bungalows !) in one of the 5 stars hotel which were on the list (and I understood by phone call, that the 3 star hotel of the list had wifi only on the terrace).

We should have been travelling to the P and V last November but our holiday was cancelled because of covid . This did us a big favour because since booking this hotel we started having reservations such as restrictions about certain rooms having more availability to the al a carte restaurants and the free yacht trip which is not actually free unless you pay an extra £800 for an upgraded room We felt that there would be too much of a them and us atmosphere around the hotel and decided it was not what we thought it was Luckily the P and V would not honour the existing booking anyway so we got our money back We will return to Mauritius one day but wont be booking the P and V Read less

This hotel is the ultimate in luxury. The rooms are stunning and the infinity pool is beautiful and the perfect spot to have a cocktail and watch the sun go down. The staff went out the way to help with any need or request and always had a smile on their face. I can't recommend the hotel enough. I'm already planning my next trip back!
