Not worth the price!!
Pros: Nice ocean view, food was good, room was confortable and good size. Cons: Service was rude at times, issues with room with no assistance, toliet was leaking and no one fixed it, as well as the bug issues. Ordered room service and no one came, and the staff was extremly unprofessional and rude to outside services, such as taxi drivers. The hotel plays music loud until 2am. Would not reocommand for couples.

Good value Mauritius resort
Very nice hotel within 10 Km of Port Louis, very friendly staff and they try their best. Maybe advisable to book FB as restaurants very expensive on an Al La Carte basis

Large but pleasant hotel
I stayed as after being on the island for business. It was very pleasant. It is a large hotel and tries as best it can to make the experience special for the guests. However, you can't get away from the fact that is is large - it was a 5 minute walk from my room to the reception / eating area and they had to cater for many guests so meal times were quite busy. I did like how they cleverly split families from "adults" without making it too obvious, the free wifi is always a plus and being able to shower and change in the transition room before flying was very welcome. It is something other hotels should embrace - most flights from Africa to Europe are overnight and the hotels make you check out between 10 - 12, leaving a whole day in the heat before boarding your plane - not pleasant for you or for your fellow travellers!

Great facilities, somewhat annoying staff
Very nice facilities with the pool area going to the beach. It could be a really top rated resort if they had a bit better trained staff that were better at listening to people and not just into what is on their own mind and better at just identifying and fixing the unneccessary quirks in the place (fridge area weirdly disfunctional, door not easily closing properly,...). The tours representative was also not good at hearing that something else was being said and repeated. I began to feel that it was a bug with Mauritius that people just try to pull you along (saying anything) with what is on their own mind and not wanting to hear anything else (like the taxi people at the airport that tries to grab our bags), but then we were the last two nights at another resort (the residence) and people were different there. It was a much better experience there, and it almost managed to repaire some damaged done at our first stop (the Ravenala) of our long travel in Africa at an important trip for us.

Chillax at Ravenala
This resort had impressive facilities and a cool beach vibe. I loved the beach bar, variety of beach lounges and the authentic Mauritian food options by the beach. Whilst our room was clean upon arrivaI, I was not impressed with housekeeping who didn't clean our room once in our 2 day stay. The beach waiters and waitresses were super friendly and made my toddler feel very welcome. The hotel features a large pool with a very large section that is suitable for toddlers (approx .5m), I think there was up to 10 restaurant options, free wi-fi, a variety of water sports, kids club, beach toys for the kids and various flavoured self-serve runs that are complimentary :-) The beach is not one of the beaches you would necessarily write home about (nearby Trou aux Biches is much prettier) however the chilled out beach vibe made the stay very relaxing.
