Booked in Agoda.com on seeing good reviews. Got a very good rate for a resort accommodation. On reaching Mauritius, realised that the drive to the villa was a long one as the seaside route was tough and hence they go through the motorway upto a point and then take a turn to reach the villa. Took more than 1 and half hours to reach the resort. Locating it was a bit difficult as Google maps shows upto the turn and not the side street where the villa is located. So did a bit of turning and coming back etc., before we reached the place. The owner-Reshma, was there to see me at the resort. Mine was in first floor, with 2 bedrooms, good drawing and dining room and a balcony where a dining table was also laid out. There is a swimming pool at the ground floor, which is in the site photographs. The place is well furnished, but the facilities such as towels, bathroom accessories etc., were not there in the right bedroom (Maybe the owner realised that for the deal this was good enough). Had to ask her where the towels were etc. In the first bedroom where I stayed, there was a double bed with mosquito net, split airconditioner and a nice cupboard with attached spacious bathroom. The second bedroom had similar facilities along with a baby crib also, so good for families with a small baby. The drawing room has a nice sofa L shape facing the TV, which has few cable channels. There is a dining table with chairs and a kitchenette with good facilities including cooking space, water kettle and microwave , fridge etc. There were good amount of vessels etc., along with culinary items for family to cook and have food. She had also kept a bottle of water and tropical juice as complimentary.
Did not try the swimming pool during my 1 day stay, but felt that the location is quite far away from the hustle bustle of the city, and hence may be ideal for a family and not a single man. Also for walk/jog in the morning had no company on road, as it is quite isolated and could be slightly jittery. Though security is not an issue in the island, it is preferable to be careful in such an isolated place. I have stayed in another resort Villasun in Flic-en-Flac, which was very large and never felt uncomfortable.
You need a car else you can be completely lost here. The nearest supermarket in La Gaulette is not even having bread , so you better stock up and go there from a Monoprix or other supermarket, as you will find literally nothing in that place.
