In Dec 2012 we took a little break over to Mauritius.
We had five nights at the Sofitel L'Imperial Resort & Spa (here).
It was a beautiful resort in Flic En Flac.
Breakfast was included and was stunning, we'd sit there for ages overlooking the pool and the gardens, sampling all the delicious breakfast items on offer!
The hotel was a little far from the small town, but there was a bus that you could catch into the town. It was nothing special, quite a rickety old thing, but it cost pennies and got you there safely!
In the town there were a few restaurants, gift shops, where I bought a beautiful sarong and a Spa supermarket. I must admit we were pleased that there was a supermarket near by, so we could stock up on a few room treats!
One of the restaurants we went to was Hippocampe, just around the corner from the Spa. The restaurant had a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food was very tasty and a good selection. I've also seen they have great reviews on TripAdvisor, so definitely one to visit!
Back at the hotel, the pool, beach and gardens are stunning. The rooms comfortable and clean, but unfortunately the T.V didn't have the best selection.
If we didn't go out for dinner we ate at the beach bar. Even though the restaurants in the hotel looked beautiful and the menus looked very tasty, they had the rule where, men had to wear long trousers of an evening. Some of the restaurants didn't have air conditioning, so in that heat and humidity it would of been so uncomfortable for my husband and lets face it, when you're on holiday you want to be relaxed and comfy.
All in all, we really liked the hotel and had a very enjoyable holiday in Mauritius.
