Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 9.85 /10

    The Le Palmiste is located in Trou aux Biches, on the north-west coast of Mauritius. Grand Baie is 7 and a half mi away, around half an hour's drive, whilst transfer time to the airport is around an hour.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The most recent guest rooms were opened in 2008, and the fact that the Le Palmiste was built in three phases means that there are also three different styles of room. The oldest rooms feature Indian-influenced decor, those built in the second phase are more Asian in style and the latest rooms are typically Mauritian. The basic rooms have a floor area of 141 sq ft and contain basic furniture, but the light colours used in the decor brighten up proceedings. They also have a terrace or balcony, depending on the floor, and given their close proximity from one room to the next, there is also a curtain which can be drawn across for a little more privacy. Amenities include a television, a free safe, air-conditioning, a minibar with tea and coffee-making facilities, a direct international telephone line and a hair-dryer. Although this is not the largest of hotels, it is a pity there is no room service.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The Le Palmiste is tucked away behind a façade of volcanic stone, and the small lobby is housed in one of the hotel's oldest buildings, sheltered by a palm-leaf roof. The wooden reception desk stands facing the old furniture in the rather dark surroundings of the lobby, whilst outside there is a choice of three swimming pools provided with wooden or plastic deckchairs and parasols, and surrounded by the buildings several storeys high which house the guest rooms. If you feel like a spot of pampering, head to the hotel's spa, a small well-being centre which consists of two massage rooms, one of which is reserved for couples, and a hydro-massage room.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant is located in the second part of the hotel and can accommodate up to 200 diners in its rather large, outward-facing dining room. The restaurant opens for all three daily meals, with breakfast and dinner served as a buffet and lunch served 'à la carte'. Alternatively, if you'd rather stay where you are for lunch, you can simply have your choice of dish brought to you! The cuisine here features both local and international dishes, including a very wide variety of Mauritian specialities.

    To know

    In addition to its 90 guest rooms, the Le Palmiste opened a residence adjacent to the hotel, with its own private pool, in 2007. With regards to entertainment, a Sega show is put on once a week and a live singer entertains guests three times a week.

      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!

      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.
