If you want to relax in a simple but nice setting, the Bougainville is the perfect place. Recommended for both couples and families with a reasonable budget.
This hotel review is a translation from the French, published on our French site, Easyvoyage.com.
On the oceanfront, on the Trou d'Eau Douce site, 2.5 miles away from Centre de Flacq. Plaisance airport is located 15.5 miles away from here, about a 45 hour drive.
Simple and carefree, the Bougainville is recommended for clients wishing to relax first of all on the oceanfront. There are a few water sports that can be practiced on the spot, but for all the motorised sports you should go to the Ambre hotel ( shuttle provided ).
The construction of the hotel was finished in 2000. The Bougainville is composed of two-level bungalows located in a 1.5 hectares garden. The ochre fašades are fitted out with balconies and covered with sheet metal roofs. The swimming pool measures 90 m▓. You can find deckchairs and canvas sunshades.
The hotel has 51 rooms including 15 family rooms of 48 m▓ with a view of the sea or the garden. The standard room of 36 m▓ offers a bathroom with shower ( hair-dryer at the reception desk). Each room has TV, adjustable air-conditioning, a balcony, direct telephone line for international calls. The decoration and the furniture are very colorful : they mix up very well varnished wood, rattan and the fabrics with orange stripes. A safe is available at the reception. However, there is no mini-bar or room service.
The main restaurant, ''The Unicorn'' can welcome up to 150 guests. It is open for the 3 meals and it offers theme buffets ( local and European cuisine). The room that opens on the swimming pool, is furnished in a simple way, but it is welcoming, made of light rattan. The beach restaurant (100 seats) operates for lunch ( snack, a la carte ) and dinner ( menu or ''a la carte'' ). When booking, you can choose between the "half-board" deal or '' all inclusive'' ( to be chosen if you don't want to put a strain on your budget with drinks and snacks).
The black sandy beach is very small ( 70 m long and 5 m large). It is a little noisy, a bit protected from the wind and the water is clear. The hotel has few sports amenities. You can practice free diving at no charge ( equipment supplied ), kayaking, pedalo and canoe. Windsurfing and nautical ski can be practiced at the Ambre hotel. You should expect additional charges for bottle diving, parasailing, sailing and game fishing. These paying activities can also be practiced at the Ambre hotel.
