A worn out recreational park

The general layout and the ideas used seem very nice but now are rather run down. It has a small railway but it was not running well that day. Hot during the day so take water... read more

We have been told by our local Taxi driver that this has been closed since 3 years!!! Since 2014 ... Our guidebook from Dumont (2015) didn't tell us. What a pity!

Been to DLP many times and basically it is either lunch or going to the casino. It does not seem to have other activities despite publicity on sugar mills, horse riding etc....

There is nothing great about this place. It is out of the way from Port Louis. Mostly a tourist will need to hire a taxi and taxi comes very expensive in Mauritius. It is better to chose another place to visit.

The best place with several varieties of cosmopolitan restaurants to try! The fu xiao Chinese restaurant remains my favourite one as the Chinese food there is wonderful! I also love the Indian restaurant there, held by my Anglican friend's sister. Especially the decor and the music...

With high hopes as being the best casino there were only few tables mostly of roulette and black jack. Only one table of Stud Poker . Very quiet no music no bling it was very very boring experience ( A better one would be in Grand Baie with two an entire floor for Poker and bowling joint attached :)

It is in the suburb of Port Louis. The restaurant are OK. Thher is only one way to go and if there is an exhibition at SVICC you must have lots of patience to drive inch by inch inside the domaine. Preferably go to visit on week days with kids.
