Mauritius is gorgeous. So blue and the beach very nice. Not much crowded like Bombay beaches. It was good times with my family, but we didn’t get nearby rooms even since we booked so many days early. But hotel shifted us lateer to other rooms so we were together later. It was reaaly good of them, and I am very thank full to them. Staff was very nice. Our package deal from HolidayMe was very cheap, so we spend more on shopping on the markets in the hotel. Enjoyed in the beach and the seawaters, and came back very happy.

Wow, beautiful Mauritius
by Kelly Pettyfer
Amazing holiday we had in Mauritius. Very pretty, enjoyable time we spent swimming and indulging in water sports. Weather was lovely, and we tanned ourselves like anything. Coming back to the hotel was a real struggle coz we just wanted to be in the sea. HolidayMe directed us towards the perfect resort, with great facilities and delish food. Cudnt have been better.

Well, Mauritius was a cool place for a trip with friends. Resort was awesome, but pool was always crowded. We swam in the sea mosltyl, and enjoyed kayaking and banana boat rides. HolidayMe offered good discounts to us, and an upgrade.

Good time in Mauritius
by Nigaar Hasan
Mauritius was a great option or us, for our honeymoon trip. We love swimming so it was a great vacation. Many great water sports for us, although they are very costly. Wish they were part of the package we had taken from HolidayMe, then we could have enjoyed all of them. Resort was great, and we loved the food, and there were so many option to choose from, from seafood to chicken and more. People were friendly, and staff was happy to help. We would love to come back to Mauritius again, and maybe club Dubai or Sri Lanka with it.

The perfect place for beach lovers
by Bibiana Maloof
Great place to enjoy the beaches of your choice. Le Morne Brabant is a good trek and nice views, although a little steep so beware. Ile Aux Cerfs is a good beach but too crowded on weekends and horrible toilets. Curious case of Chamarel was funny but needs more attractions. Chateau de Labourdonnais has a nice restaurant and staff.

Wish to stay longer
by Akash Bhutani
I wish HolidayMe would have offered us a longer duration package for the same amount, then we could have stayed longer. Three days is not much when the palce is so beautiful. The hotel is also so nice that you don’t feel like going back to your home. Next time, take a longer duration package even if it costs more.

Nice time with family
by Salim Qaiser
Quite good trip frankly. Mauritius doesn’t have much to do, coz the islands are really far and transportation on boat is expensive. But staying at the resort was good, and watersports was good. Food was ok too, less veggie options.

Could have been better
by Alex Goldsach
So I have been to Mauritius before, but this time we were traveling in a group. The deal we got from HolidayMe was ok, not very impressive. But the hotel was not that great. The beach near it was dirty, with bottles and seaweed. But the food was great, and so was the hotel staff, so I guess it was an ok trip.

A paradise called Mauritius
by Farid Kalb
We started our tour with a visit to the seven colored earth. You can easily see the different colors of the earth. There is a nice small waterfall near it and the gift shop is also nice. Ile Aux Cerfs is a nice beach but very crowded on weekends and the water sports and the food and drinks are quite expensive. Mont Choisy Beach is much better and less crowded. It is very clean and best for swimming. There are lots of trees which gives good shade. La Vanilla Nature Park has lots of native animals, turtles and crocodiles.

Exciting and relaxing
by Ablah Kouri
Mauritius is a lovely holiday spot to enjoy beaches and natural reserves. Ile Aux Cerfs is a nice beach.We booked a speed boat trip which took us to a waterfall, had BBQ lunch and then boat ride to the island. On the beach one can do snorkeling and other sports activity. The beach is nice and has lots of restaurants along the side. We visited seven colored earths when it was raining so could not see the colors. There is nothing else to do there. Flic and Flac beach is not that crowded but be careful of the broken corals.
