    Location 8.64 /10

    On the oceanfront, near Pointe aux Piments village, and 5 miles away from Grand-Baie. To reach the hotel from the airport ( located 37 miles away), you will need a 1 hour drive.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The rooms are very simply decorated. They are divided in 2 categories : standard room ( 40 ) and family appartment (3). They are facing the sea and they are equipped with a balcony or a sundeck, a bathroom with shower, air-conditioning and direct telephone line.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Opened in 1990, the Colonial Beach is a two-storey building with vivid colors including 43 rooms. The architecture in the common areas is laid out around a pool of 50 m². Table tennis, petanque and beach volleyball can be practiced.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    Breakfasts and dinners are served buffet-style, the themes of which are different ( Chinese, Indian, Creole or barbecue buffets). However, the dishes remain simple and quite basic. The restaurant, that overlooks the sea, has bright colors like the rest of the establishment. For lunch, the menu offers omelettes and sandwiches for reasonable prices and traditional meats recipes and seafood.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    The Colonial Beach opens on to a good size beach that preserved its wild nature. This beach will delight devotees of originality, but it might not please those that don't like the stones or the seaweeds. Styrofoam relax and mattresses are available under a few thatched sunshades. Your tranquility won't be disturbed by the noise of the water sports. All the sports are practiced outside the hotel ( for additional charges).

    To know

    The atmosphere at the Colonial Beach is both simple and exotic : ideal for those having a low budget or for those seeking a nice place where they can relax.

      The Victoria is a hotel very appreciated by groups of travellers that are coming to Mauritius for a seminar or in incentive. Single clients will feel somehow lost. However, the hotel has more than one asset, and specially its big swimming pool and the 0.6 mile long beach.

      • Location 9.85

      The Le Palmiste opened in 2004 and has gradually grown in size ever since. Having started out with only 18 guest rooms, it now has 90, but that's as big as it is going to get, as the establishment wants to maintain its moderate size. The clientele here is essentially European (German, French and English) and the hotel attracts couples and families in equal measure. It is famed for the peaceful surroundings it provides and also offers excellent value for money. On the downside, it is not located on the seafront, although the beach is only 328 ft from the entrance.

      The La Margarita belongs to the same owner as the Villas Mon Plaisir, offering guests the opportunity to use the facilities of both establishments. As the former does not enjoy the same seafront location as the latter, guests at both hotels can access the beach and water sports facilities of the Villas Mon Plaisir. This should be viewed as an asset and not an inconvenience of the small, comfortable, friendly and unpretentious hotel of La Margarita. Moreover, if it's value for money you're after, you need look no further!
