    Location 3.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the seafront, on the south-east coast of the island. Port-Mathurin is located 9.3 miles away and the airport is 12.4 miles away. It takes at least 30 minutes to go downtown or to the airport, as the road is twisting up to the Mount Lubin, and thus would not let you progress faster.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The hotel has 34 rooms, including 4 suites. All the rooms can accommodate up to 3 people and they are all oriented in a manner to face the sea. Spreading on a good area ( 32 m²), they have a terrace equipped with wooden deck chairs. The suites also provide access to a small pool equipped with a jacuzzi. As for the furniture, the rooms are furnished with ceruse wood ; the suites display a furniture made of light wood and rattan. Their bathrooms have a bathtub, while there is a shower in the standard rooms. A hair dryer is installed everywhere. The remaining facilities include air conditioning, fan and a mini-bar.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    Opened in 1993, the Mourouk Ebony hotel consists of 10 ground floor buildings following the Creole style, facing the lagoon. Small alleys adorned with coconut trees and hibiscus and bougainvillea lead to the rooms. The reception area, located in the same building as the restaurant, is fitted out with a very simple rattan furniture. Down below, you will find the swimming pool, whose edge merges with the ocean when you sit on a deckchair. With a semi-Olympic length ( 25 m ), it is spacious enough for swimming. It is a good asset, because the shallow lagoon would not really allow you to swim, especially at low tide.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The dining room is lined up with a crank overlooking the swimming pool and the lagoon. Stretching along the entire length of the building, the terrace of typical Creole architecture offers a beautiful view onto the sea. A good reason to linger at the table to honour the buffet served for breakfast or the menu served at the table in the evening. The culinary specialities of the island such as fish carry, banana flambée and Rodrigues honey are presented with other dishes, more international. 2 theme evenings are organised during the week ( with a traditional show ) allowing you to have dinner on the beach around a buffet. At noon, the beach restaurant offers dishes and snacks under straw huts on the seaside.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The beach stretches along the entire length of the area. It is ideal for a jogging or to enjoy the surrounding areas. There is no construction around, but only coconut trees, filao trees, and heaps of lava rocks forming creeks on both sides of the central cove . The beach is fitted out approximately over 150 metres. Straw huts, molded plastic deckchairs, mattresses and towels are made available to customers. A water sports club allows you to practise various activities. A must to do as well : take on a yacht excursion to one of the desert islands, Cocos island or Sands island. Peace and dream beach are guaranteed ! However, the beach which the Mourouk overlooks is not very suitable for swimming because the lagoon is shallow and subject to the influence of tides.

    To know

    The Mourouk Ebony provides facilities suitable for families : spacious rooms with an extra bed, an outdoors playground, and a kid's club hosting 3 to 11 years old children and open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
    During your stay, make sure to visit the hills of South-East Port. On foot : it is still the easiest way, even if the road climbs up sharply. As you climb, you will discover a gorgeous panorama of the lagoon ( the most beautiful on the whole island ), and the turquoise meanders designed by the river Mourouk.

      • Package deals in novembre 2012 Posted on 2013-08-06 Seul - 2 nuitées (Chambre avec vue)

        Hôtel aux proportions humaines, aux reflets doux de l'île. Beaucoup de personnel qui ne pense qu'à une seule chose : vous servir. Ils ont été particulièrement arrangeant avec moi. Les chambres sont très correctes et les repas typiques de l'océan indien. L?hôtel est placé au Sud coté vent ; les amateurs de Kyte s'y retrouvent. Des sorties dans toutes l'île sont proposées et sont très bien organisées. Dépaysement assuré !
