Simple, but yet nice, the Blue Lagoon Beach is a place without fuss and without any problem. Those who wish to discover the south of the island will appreciate its close proximity to Mahébourg.
This hotel review is a translation from the French, published on our French site, Easyvoyage.com.
The hotel is located on the seafront, on the site of Blue Bay, 2.5 miles away from Mahébourg and 9.3 miles away from the airport accessible in 15 minutes .
The beach of the hotel is rather small, but that of Blue Bay ( which forms a large cove ) is right next to it. Like all public beaches, the latter is crowded on weekends and virtually deserted during the week. Do not hesitate to go there during the week to enjoy the place and on weekends to enjoy the atmosphere .
The hotel was built in 1996. It is structured in a U shape, with white villas of two floors, lined up with wooden balconies and topped by thatched roofs. As for the size of the field, it does not exceed 2 hectares, so those who appreciate large shaded parks would feel a little cramped. However, the swimming pool has a good size (200 m²) for the hotel. It overlooks the sea, a few metres away from the beach and is surrounded by a pleasant solarium equipped with sunshades and deckchairs.
The hotel has 73 standard rooms of 20 m² (including 9 triple rooms). Half of them have a view onto the sea; the other half overlooks the garden. They all have a small balcony. The amenities are a private bathroom ( with a shower and a hair dryer ), television, air conditioning, a mini-bar and telephone for international dialling via a switchboard 24 hours a day. The furniture is very simple and combines dark wood and rattan. Draperies and bedspreads display a printed turquoise pattern, like the lagoon. However, there is no room-service .
The main restaurant "le Colonel" can accommodate up to 200 guests. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It offers only theme buffets ( Asia, Africa, Europe ), but the choice is limited and the dishes are very simple. "Le café badamier" (60 place settings) offers salads, seafood and grillings. It works for lunch. The all inclusive package includes all the meals, local drinks (table and outside) and pancakes in the afternoon.
The white sand beach is small ( 100 x 30 m ), but it overlooks a beautiful lagoon. In addition, the public beach of Blue Bay is located right next to it. All the necessary equipments are available on the beach of the hotel. You can practice free snorkeling (equipment supplied), sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and pedalo. However, you should allow an extra for water skiing, parasailing, bottle diving and game fishing .
