This small hotel is just a short walking distance from the centre of Port Mathurin and the market and bus station. One feels you are out in the country as chickens walk about all over the place. The food is good and carefully served by a wonderful staff. Prices are very reasonable and there is a good swimming pool and bar area.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a balcony on the 1st floor

Escale Vacances is a family run Hotel with friendly and helpful staff.

The rooms are clean and airy with air conditioning which is important during the summer months.

There is a good size swimming pool which is well maintained. The food was excellent and they were also extremely accommodating for my Vegetarian diet!

The staff there speak good English and are always willing to give valuable advice on what to do and where to go in Rodrigues plus organise tours, airport transfers and care hire.

Its also a great location, just a short walk into the town of Port Mathurin and the bus station where you can easily catch a bus to get around the Island.

Rodrigues is a paradise Island and staying at Escale Vacances made the trip a wonderful experience.

Small friendly hotel within walking distance from Port Mathurin, the Capital of Rodrigues,a district some 350 miles from the mainland of Mauritius. A 90 minutes flight from mainland Mauritius and only 20 minutes from the local airport of Plaine Coraille. Ideal for a long week end and a starting point to visit the various sights such as the caves and the giant tortoise sanctuary and of course the Saturday markets for local wares and handicrafts.
Food include local delicacies such as octopus curry and salt fish and maize cakes.Rates very reasonable.

Room Tip: 4 balcony rooms overlooking a mountain to view the Golden bats in the evening sunset.

The hotel is walking distance from Port Maturin so all facilities very easily available. The price is also very interesting and people are very nice. There is the swimming pool which is also very nice.

Room Tip: First floor so as not to carry luggage.

The place has a nice garden and is clean and airy. Staff are helpful and the amenities ok. The food is also good there. Rooms are on the small side but good for a short stay. THe hotel is animated during the day but seems dull at night, especially since you are rather far from the town centre. I do not mind revisiting.

Room Tip: Front view rooms on the garden or onto a cliff at the back
