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 …
... used to know them years ago and they always took us to their house for visits. They had a big house and I always wished we had a house like that. The pagoda is right in the heart of Port Louis and it has been renovated. It is really pretty, peaceful and very clean. I love the different plants that they planted in big chinese pots. All the plants and trees are so different from what we see here in the ...
... ever had at lunch time at a beautiful open-sided restaurant built into a lush river gorge. It was fish, of course, but so tasty and with yummy accompaniments. In the afternoon we saw the Seven Colored Earth near Charmarel, an area of volcanic soil that probably would have been more impressive if it wasn't wet. Again it was a long, but thoroughly enjoyable day. And we got to see a large part of the island. One of the highlights for me ...
... language. It didn’t sound like Norse or Danish or Swedish, which I can usually pick out. Many were blond though, so I decided they were probably Nordic and so I wondered if they were Finnish; that language doesn’t sound like the others in the region and is hard for me to recognize. I waited (these flights are long!) and finally surreptitiously glanced at a passport as a couple was filling out entry documents and found I had guessed ...
... really giant! the last of our tours is actually a cruise... a pirate cruise to be exact. we are supplied with as much rum as we can handle and feel the need to go paragliding. kelly was given the task of landing which turned out to be two big guys grabbing out feet and pulling us in. we sail to the waterfalls and to ill au cief also known as robinson cruso island. its stunning here ...

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.
