- Holiday Type:
We really enjoyed our holiday, flights were on time, hotel was superb, weather very good, but the Mauritian people really did make the holiday memorable. Everyone seemed so kind, from the hotel staff to the taxi driver in Port Louis to the speed boat driver, all were so friendly.
Mauritius is a beatiful country - it is fortunate to have a reef about half a mile offshore which protects the beaches and provides really calm lagoon type conditions and with the water like a warm bath it really was a pleasure! The 2 golf courses at Belle Mare were excellent and although not the easiest courses I've played were very enjoyable with good greens and fairways etc. We hired a taxi for whole days to take us round the island which proved a good idea as we were taken to places we would never have found on our own.
Belle Mare Plage is a superb hotel set on an excellent beach with well maintained gardens. We really enjoyed the food - all the restaurants were excellent, but as were on half board we found the buffet selection and quality to be so good we really didn't need to pay any extra for our meals to be honest. We were fortunate in that the MCB Tour Championship seniors golf was at the hotel (played on the Legends course) during our first week, so we were invited to 2 cocktail evenings with free drinks and canapes etc and able to mix with the players (pic with Colin Montgomerie also!).
