The Astroea Beach Hotel took over the former Villa Guerlande guest house on 11 January 2012. Before opening its doors under its current name, the hotel closed for five months to carry out the necessary renovation works. Nowadays, the hotel provides a charming and friendly place to stay for some relaxing holidays. Those who enjoy organised entertainment should look elsewhere, as there is none at the hotel. Thanks to the limited number of guest rooms and a capacity of 40 people, the Astroea Beach Hotel ensures a personalised service with a team of 26 smiling staff.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The Astroea Beach Hotel is located in Pointe d'Esny, on the south-east coast of Mauritius. It takes about an hour to reach Port Louis by car, while the airport is just a 10-minute drive away.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The hotel has 16 guest rooms: five 30m Standard, four 35m Comfort, two 45m Deluxe, and five 62m Bungalows. The Standard and Comfort rooms are about the same size, but are located in different parts of the hotel. The Standard rooms are at the back of the building, while the Comfort and Deluxe rooms are located in the main building. The Bungalows in the hotel courtyard all have two bedrooms, and are decorated in the same style. The raw wood and hints of blue give them a classy feel. All the basic amenities are provided: air-conditioning, a television, a refrigerator, tea and coffee-making facilities, etc. However, there is no telephone and therefore no room service.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The Astroea Beach Hotel is a small and friendly establishment. It may not have many facilities, but it's all about the charm and tranquillity of the place. It is a shame, though, that there is no swimming pool, particularly when the temperatures rise. The Astroea Beach Hotel is composed of a small, uncluttered reception, a small lounge which joins onto the restaurant, and a terrace with a superb view of the sea. The whole place exudes a sense of well-being, with a delightful garden to top it all off. The light colours are harmoniously coordinated, and the turquoise matches the colour of the sea.
    Guests also have two massage rooms at their disposal: one in the main communal area and the other one facing it, on the other side of the road.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel's only restaurant is open for all three meals of the day. Breakfast is served as a buffet, with the usual continental breakfast items as well as some hot options. Lunch is served la carte, and consists of light dishes. As for dinner, there is a set menu with the choice of two different dishes each evening. The cuisine is a combination of European and Mauritian food, and the magnificent view of the sea makes for a charming setting. The tables are nicely spread out, and if the dining room gets a bit noisy, guests can enjoy some peace and quiet out on the covered terrace.

    Beach 6.45 /10

    The beach at the hotel is more or less private. The Mauritian coastline is public, but the section in front of the Astroea Beach Hotel is difficult to get to; it can only be accessed through the hotel. The beach area is small, and although the water is exquisite, the sand is coarse and there are several rocks visible in the sea. The deckchairs are plastic with blue cushions. Overall, it is a lovely place to look at, but not very practical.

    To know

    Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, but is charged extra. 24 hours of Internet access cost 115 Mauritian rupees (about 2).
    As the hotel is part of the same group as the Preskil, guests enjoy free access to all the facilities at the latter, just over a mile from the hotel.
