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 …
... much need lunch in cosy bar. I tried to get an hour if sun before our massages but it decided to rain on me so that was a failure! Went to the spa at 4 for our full busy oriental massages. We had to totally strip off and put paper pants in which were pretty embarrassing but I'm sue they've seen worse before! Had a 50 minute massage which was odd at times and not exactly relaxing, as the girls kept whispering during the massage which when ...
... it is getting now a little bit bored because we do this now already for 3 weeks. But also my supervisor Alia tolds us that it is the most bored part from marketing (what I agree!!) And after this it is going to be more fun :) So I am looking forward to starts with the events next week hopefully. And I hope Riverland is going to open the 24th of October (I don't know if there are going to made it..) But first I will finished some work today and then ...
... 2pm when the Texas man came on for the mid-day announcements. It was then he told us that they were scheduled to arrive in Mauritius at 10pm, and they were planning on refuelling and leaving at 1am. However, the Institute for Shipboard Education managed to pull some strings and have the ship spend the night and then clear customs at 6am. They would let us off the ship the following day from 8am-12pm. 4 hours in Mauritius!! How fun! The pool deck erupted in applause.
... entrance of the Botanical Garden we (again) walked past the line to get in through the Main gate which was a gift from Francois Lienard a French man from the 19th century. It was in wrought iron and won a prize in 1862, at the crystal Palace, England. As we walked past the hundreds of species of trees for a while we finally came upon the Pondof Giant Water Lillies. This pond was created by Nicolas Céré and contains at least ...

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.
