It is always a sad time at the end of a cruise, when we say goodbye to all the people we have befriended and to all the staff who have looked after us so well especially Max the Macedonian sommelier who took particularly good care of us!
The ship was docked at Post Louis on the isle of Mauritius. First views were of a luscious green island …
... Rangers or Black Hawk Down, during which they were surrounded by and fought thousands of heavily armed militia.
We crossed into the Indian Ocean and over the equator at almost the same time, then flew between the beautiful Seychelles Islands and Madagascar as we approached Mauritius.
About 04:00 the lights came up, two hours or so before our landing, so we could have a light breakfast and wake up before arrival. It was still dark when we touched down. ...
... is a small island because it only covers about 2 046 square kilometres. Apparently Mauritius was made by a volcanic eruption. This created a 671 metre high plateau. Mauritius is a great place to visit. It gives in depth, a glimpse of what the world would be if there were no racism. It gives a wonderful sense of happiness towards others. Above all it shows through it's food, languages, festivals and religions that we can all UNITE AS ...
... dinner at the seafood restaurant tonight so we got ready and went starlight out. It's the most gorgeous setting in a wooden hut on stools in the sea. Was pretty breezy due to cyclone imelda, but we were protected in the hut. Saw little crabs and a jelly fish so felt very within nature. The food was lovely and Glyn had lobster so coped with a seafood restaurant. Had a very romantic evening, but had an early ish night as I had a headache- I'm blaming the ...
I slept in yesterday and truly enjoyed it. I had some time in the morning to slow down, read and think. At my late breakfast I noticed out the window that the market was a food market, so I took a minute to walk down and admire the play of color in the fruit and vegetables and the varieties of people, dress and activities. Mauritians are usually relaxed and friendly. When people saw me with a camera, rather than turning away or exhibiting anger, or ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLe Meridien Ile Maurice Pointe Aux Piments
A large resort hotel set on the beach with balconied large rooms overlooking the nice gardens and sea. It offers all inclusive which is well worth it. Breakfast is a huge comprehensive buffet. For lunch there is a choice of a buffet in Shells on the beach or poolside burger & chips. We preferred the waiter service at La Faya at the far end of the resort- good food. In the evening the choice was the large buffet upstairs, which changed every night, or the Indian buffet. We liked the waiter service at Shells. January is very hot & humid all day & night. Water sports are included .

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Meridien Ile Maurice Pointe Aux Piments
The meredien is a great hotel in a very nice location. The weather in the northwest part of the island (where this hotel was based) was extremely nice in their winter as apposed to the rest of the island. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable - all sea facing and with a balcony. The food was good - esp the breakfast and lunch, but the dinner was variable.
Our family of four, with two kids (5 and 4) stayed for 6 nights earlier this month and we all had a very good time.
As a longterm business traveler I was accustomed to quite a couple of Le Meridien hotels worldwide and always appreciated the attention to detail and quality. Therefore I booked a my honeymoon stay at this hotel and stood in a double bedroom with my wife. Overall my high expectations on some points were exceeded but on quite a lot of other points not fullfilled. I guess a lot of this has to do with the underdeveloped infrastructure on this island, including access to qualified staff and experienced hoteliers.
Before my family and I travelled to this hotel, I was quite concerned after reading some of the previous reviews however this meant that we were plesantly surprised by the excellent quality of accommodation and helpful, sincere service that we received. Upon arrival, we were sat down in the reception area, given a refreshing cocktail whilst our paperwork and room details were explained. This was a stress-free, relaxed start to our holiday and a very plesant change from queuing at reception after a long trip in some 5 * hotels that we have previously been to. This excellent, thoughtful start to our holiday was followed through for the two weeks we were there:
We've just returned from 10 days at Le Meridien and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Le Meridien is a great choice of Hotel for the price.
Very child friendly
Very Friendly and professional Staff
Plenty of Water Sport Activity
Wonderful pool and bars
Catering was not the best, both the food and presentation has much room for improvement. Management are aware and are working to improve it.
The hotel has an impressive lobby.
The hotel is Ok, but if you're looking for something special pay a little extra and stay at one of the others....
Just returned from another glorious visit to Mauritius.
