눉cost of drinks: $8 for a beer, but we still bought them:-)
눇We spent 5 nights of our 2 weeks on Mauritius at the Merville Beach resort. From the time we arrived, we knew we made the right decision. We were greeted by very friendly staff, moist cloths that smelled exotic, and the best coffee we have ever drank. Our room was spacious and had a balcony with a view of the ocean! The room was light and airy and was beach themed- and VERY close to the beach. The hotels beach is excellent with good sand and palapas, and bar service on the lounges! We had the breakfast package, and thought the breakfast had a great variety of fruit, omelettes, cereals, crepes (pancakes), english breakfast selection, juices, and croissants! The pool area is very inviting, and they have water-robics each morning. The boat house has excellent staff, and provide twice daily snorkeling trips, lots of water activities such as kayaks and wind surfing, They also provide day trips. Each eveing the hotel has entertainment- local bands, dancers, etc. Very good entertainment. We did not have lunch or dinner here, but people we met all said it was quite good. The hotel has a spa- my friend used it and loved it. The real gem is the staff- they were all friendly, efficient, and provided excellent service.
