Historical Traveler Reviews Constance Le Prince Maurice Poste De Flacq
We stayed at Le Prince Maurice for our honeymoon in October this year. We both felt like royalty most of the time which was quite an overwhelming experience. The hotel is clearly geared up to this kind of visitor and therefore most people have disappeared by 10pm.
The hotel has been designed beautifully and I could not find fault with anything in the room. The staff were very friendly and courteous and seemed to be bending backwards to make our stay as comfortable as possible - I was quite overwhelmed with the effort they made with room service!
My only gripe was that there probably wasn't enough variety food-wise and we did escape to another hotel for dinner one night and that was doubly expensive as the cab had to wait for us to take us back as the whole of Mauritius shuts down after dark! The Floating restaurant was lovely, the food was very good and the fishes kept us amused intermittently! The alcohol is also extortionate but then this is the type of hotel that imports its butter from france.....overall we had a great time and felt really relaxed at the end of it.
I would recommend it to honeymooners and suggest that there are other hotels which are much better value for money regarding things like food, alcohol and hotel activities but don't have the same service and wonderful surroundings. The spa, though pricey was a totally awesome experience.
This is the best hotel we've ever stayed in and we really have to think hard to find fault in it! ps I would recommend hiring a car in Mauritius - its a little hairy driving there but it gives you a lot of freedom to explore.
Lovely stay with a few buts!!
Stayed at Prince Maurice last 2 weeks of Sept. and had agreat time but -
the price of the wine was extortionate - £50+ for a decent bottle that would cost £5 in the UK. The bar was virtually empty because of the price of the drinks and some evenings at 10pm the restaurant and bar were deserted. The food was excellent but it was a shame there were only two restaurants. The floating rest. was a virtual no go area because it was too windy and cool to eat there which was a shame. The swimming pool was more ornamental than functional. Our room was rather small although it was billed as a junior suite and it was a bit of a misnomer. We were in room 89 having asked for it after reading previous postings and it was a good choice because it had its own "private" beach. As it was at the end of their winter there was only 50% occupancy but it meant that it was very quiet and peaceful. The staff were the hotels best asset and could not do enough for you.
Lovely hotel, mind your belongings
We stayed here in May and allthough the weather wasn't that great our stay was fantastic. There is one but. An exceptionally large amount of money was stolen from our room. We did put it in the safe, but I think it was open one time when the cleaners came in and we went to sit on our terrace. Very dissappointed in how the hotel handled this situation. Everything else was superbe but do not expect any entertainment. After 10 p.m. everybody seems to have gone to bed. Very relaxing place to stay, but could have been even more relaxing if the beds weren't so incredibly uncomfortable.
Utterly superb hotel. Very low-key and quiet. Real get away from it all. If you like somewhere with a lot of buzz then go to Saint-Geran....it is a much busier hotel, whereas at Prince Maurice you can spend the whole day and only see a relatively small number of fellow guests, with the entertainment more likely to be a superb jazz band or pianist.
Food was fantastic and the restaurant expertly managed by Eric Van Hecke, recently joined from Alain Ducasse. Staff were well trained and very professional and overall I can't recommend it enough.
Wondeful relaxed Stay
We stayed at the Prince Maurice in September 2004 for 2 weeks. We stayed in a Senior Suite and apart from the long flights it was one of the most memorable holidays that we have had.
The hotel is very beautiful though the view from the beach was lovely it was not as good as the view from the beach of the Residence (we had stayed there 3 years before). The free Watersports are a lot of fun and the beachboys try their best to help.
The Senior suite rooms are very nice we did not see the Junior suites so can not comment on them. All the Senior suites are separate villas so there is no worries about noisy neighbours or lack of privacy. If you are staying in a Senior Suite ask for one towards the lagoon as the beach on this side is less crowded. I know they are much more expensive but for us worth the money.
The staff make this hotel standout - Manjoola went out of her way on a number of occasions to help us and ensure that we were happy. The chefs were wondeful each day thinking up new and creative menu choices for me and working to my tastes and likes (I am vegetarian), I did not once during the 14 nights feel bored of the food and they was always something new for me to look forward to. Every member of staff that we met had a smile on their faces and made us feel very welcome.
Stay here and you will not forget your memories in a hurry.
We stayed at le prince maurice for our honeymoon in September 2004 for 2 weeks. What can i say, it is by far the best hotel i have ever stayed in and i cant imagine ever staying anywhere better. if you want to be spoilt to death then this is the place for you! there are a few downsides, but nothing that would put me off going back! these being:-
1. drinks are incredibly expensive, cheapest bottle of vino we could find was approx £40. bar bill after 2 weeks was £2000!!! and we didnt get drink once!
2. No real entertainment at night. Now this wouldnt normally bother me as im not normally into this sort of thing, but due to the drinks being so expensive everybody left the bar early ie: 10pm so often it was just us two and it would have been nice to have had some music etc...
3. when booking trips we were often quoted one price, only to return and be charged a different price. i think the hotel assumes anyone staying there is very rich and can afford the additional charge.
4. make sure you use the hotel safe as i had money stolen from my room.
Please do not let these downsides put you off, it really is an amzing place and the attention to detail is outstanding. my favourite things were the floating restaurant, the ambience of the whole hotel, our suite, and the amazing smells that lingured around every corner.
Book it - NOW!
Wedding at Prince Maurice
We have just returned from our wedding and honeymoon at the Prince Maurice. For us it was the perfect place to get married. The stafff were incredibly attentive and made the whole day so relaxed and enjoyable. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was organised with the minimum of fuss.
We stayed in a senior suite which was right on the beach and was incredible.Lavender oil on the pillow at night, an endless procession of chilled champagne, fresh flowers and seemingly telepathic service. The staff remember your name, favourite foods, wine etc without prompting.
Guest relations manager Manjoola and wedding co ordinator Sabrina took great care organising our big day - adding little touches to make it extra special. We felt that we got a service that would be impossible at home.
Having said all that we did have a problem with the air conditioning in our suite which was never completely resolved. But overall I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.We have both said that we would go back to Mauritius maybe for an anniversary and we would be quite happy to drive straight to the Prince Maurice, lock the door and not come out again until hometime. A real haven of peace and relaxation.
having our own hotel in portugal,we are very demanding,attentive to details.
for the first time, we had no critics!the prince maurice exeeded our expectations!
the location is stunning, the achitecture brillante and the service outstanding!
we obviously visited the hotels around and without any doubt the prince maurice is the place to stay!!many thanks to the GM Mr.Andrew Milton and his brilliant and friendly staff!!!
Amazing Hotel in Glorious Setting
We have just returned from 3 weeks at the Prince Maurice and could not recommend it highly enough.
We splashed out and booked a senior suite with plunge pool, which was 7 steps to the amazing beach! The room was excellent with every concievable convenience - jacuzzi bath, outdoor bath, large terrace, sitting/dining room, fax, ISDN connection etc etc. Warning: some of the senior suites are on stilts around a lagoon - lovely, but you can't swim in the lagoon and they don't have plunge pool.
Food was out of this world - 2 great restaurants. The 'floating' restaurant is in a fantastic setting and very romantic.
Staff are very helpful and friendly. They organised several 'special' trips for us which were imaginative and tailor-made.
(Only gripe really is that prior to arriving we tried to organise a trip for a special anniversary and it proved impossible!! Oodles of patience and persistance were required!! But it was worth it in the end!!)
All-in-all we would recommend this great hotel.

... spotted a ginger cat resting in the shadow of a car.
Across the road and down the steps we went to admire the lake. Mario told us that the lake was filled with fish but no fishing is done here. The view from here back to the temple reflected in the lake was serene, peaceful and lovely - quite captivating and the kind of place you simply want to sit, look and listen.
Another cat was at the edge of the lake ...
