Le Coco Beach Hotel
Travel Blogs from Mahebourg
Today a journey west across the island to the capital of Port Louis. On this second excursion through the interior of Mauritius, notice a proliferation of sugar cane plantations, where very often the plants encroach right up to the border with the road, as if one is driving through a maze. The situation is similar to Fiji's where the British …
A full-day tour to check out the island's main sights. First stop - after a mandatory stop at Flacq shopping centre - was Ganga Talao - Grand Bassin, one of two natural lakes of Mauritius. Lying within the crater of an extinct volcano. Ganga Talao is an important pilgrimage site for the Hindu faith. It was still chilly on this wet morning in the …
The Air Mauritius flight landed in the middle of the night. A bus took us from the airport to Le Coco Beach Resort, together with guests in other resorts. The resort looked the most suitable among those offered by Air Mauritius packages, 6-night half-board customary with Indian Ocean packages. In the morning, was greeted by a great garden view, …
Le Coco Beach is a very nice and comfortable hotel. The most interesting part of the hotel are, of course, the beaches. Long beach is very suitable for water sports and snorkeling. The coral reef is very close to the beach. Pay attention to dive on the left side of the beach (fronting the sea) in order to avoid high speed boats. You can also ask …
The flight from Paris took about 10.5 hours. It arrived in Mauritius at about 6AM. The immigration was very quick in spite of my other intercontinental flights arriving during the same time frame. The drive from airport to Belle Mare (Coco Beach) was nice among sugar can plantations. The smell of the sugar cans when they have been just cut is very …
Historical Traveler Reviews Le Coco Beach Hotel Mahebourg
Great Family Feeling
Natural is the way I rate it, since it makes U feel close to nature & closer to yourself. I stayed for ten night with my wife and our son. It gave us a chance to find ourselvs - again- in this nature-friendly place.
After a long & tiring journey we were given a very warm & friendly greeting upon our arrival at Le Coco Beach, which set the tone for the holiday.
We stayed at the Le Coco Beach for 2-weeks during July. the weather was mixed with many storms but overall very hot and to be extpected.
I have stayed at the coco beach 3 times and have always found the staff to be charming particularly with children. My children were 18m and 3 1/2 the first time they went and each year when they have returned the staff from the dining room to the kids club to the recreational stafff have remembered their names, looked after them and showed them the best care possible. The beaches are fabulous. There are 6 seperate beaches a safe lagoon for learning to snorkel, rock pools for finding crabs, fish and shells. It is possible to find a beach of your own with no problem and they are all safe. At the long beach you can feed angel fish by hand! Paradise for small children. The food is great sumptuous buffets served by the friendliest staff I have met(and as I was longhaul cabin crew for 15 years I have met a lot of hotel staff!)Should your children not like the pizzas pastas curries salads vegetables or speciality dishes on offer the staff are more than willing to rustle up chips and chicken nuggets! The only downside to this hotel is that the rooms are fairly basic and the bathrooms are in need of a facelift but if you have small, messy children who are covered in suntan lotion and sand you may find it a blessing to have a room that you do not have to worry about too much. Excellent value for money, not the most luxurious hotel but if you want a fabulous child friendly destination and find that if your children are happpy so are you this is the ideal place.
This has to be the worst hotel I have been to in my life, I have stayed in Sun International Hotels before,(Royal Mirage, Dubai.Amazing). So I was under the impression that this may be less stars but it is bound to be of some good standard. I have to say that the whole experience was unpleasant from start to finish. The rooms are shabby to say the least, the staff are rude and the whole reason why I booked this place was because of the Kids Club but I was horrified to find that my 8 year old boy was actually physically and verbally attacked my one of the kids club nannies. I did bring this up with the management and I also complained to Sun International but not even a simple apologie. I would seriously advise anyone to save their money (let me tell you this place is not cheap) but it sure looks cheap.
Stayed at the above hotel 7th February 2005 until 21st February 2005
Only for the families
This is a family hotel. Rooms are very basic and in severe need of updating. Cracked baths, basin surround chipped and generally shabby. The decor is loud.
On the up side, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
On the down side, it's expensive and the children of guests were numerous and loud. You cannot escape them unless you can find a private spot far away from them. Near the pool, in the main dining area - in fact practically all over the resort there are relentlessly screaming children.
Would never stay there again.
Went to the Coco beach in february 2004 on an All Inclusive basis. Definitely recommend all inclusive as there are few shops outside the sprawling hotel resort.
The hotel was of a good standard, offering a range of sports activities, an excellent kids club and the buffet meals were very enjoyable.
The staff were genuinely friendly. There is a good pool area and the beach is fabulous. I would also advise people to go out and get a taste of real mauritius by visiting the small towns and Port Louis.
We ended up at this hotel after being shafted by the tour company Asia Travel. Took our money up front for La Pirogue 4* and we were taken to Le Coco Beach 3* without choice. So felt very negative on arrival at a "Lively Family" hotel for our romantic couples holiday. But it really won us over. We had a lovely room in the villa area with a beautiful 2 minute walk through the fabulous garden to one one of the 4 white sandy beaches, where we snorkelled and sunbathed. Not much in the way of refreshments on the beach, but it was a short walk to the pool bar. Beach vendors were plentiful, but not aggressive. On the other side of our villa was a 9 hole pitch and putt course. Not having played for years we were apprehensive, but there was no one watching and we hacked around it several times a day. Just fantastic, even in the odd downpour. We really enjoyed the food, standard buffet but great service, great location overlooking the pool area, great variety. No complaints. Entertainment wasn't to our taste, we spent most nights with quiet drinks and the movie channel on TV. The kids club looked brilliant and we were sorry we hadn't brought our 2 and 4 year olds. We will go back with them in the near future. The pool was very warm, not crowded with great burgers for lunch at the pool bar. We had our birthday celebration dinner in Le Boathouse restaurant, which was pricey, but superb. All in all well recovered, but will never use Asiatravel again.
