Indian Resort - Apavou Hotels: "First Impressions that run out" Mauritius Hotel Tip by wild.goose

Mauritius Hotels: 140 reviews and 228 photos

When you first arrive at Indian Resort, you'd feel as if you've made the right choice of accomodation - The gateway and driveway into the hotel gives you an impression of exclusivity and prestiege, as you turn into the round about that is a koi-filled fountain, the resort resonates such grandeur you can't wait to check in. Unfortunately this hotel lacks in several little things that make a hotel stay comfortable and for the guest to feel special. Particularly because this hotel has promised to much, it has disappointed heavily. To begin with, a dive trip which we processed before arriving at the hotel and were assured of was infact not processed and we were not able to dive (which was one of the purposes of our being at this hotel). Though the hotel boasts 3 restaurants, the food is infact anything from delectable and if you do crave genuine and tasteful Mauritian flare, I'd recommend you best eat out. the discerning diner will also notice that food is recycled from the different meals and sometimes go bad without much notice. Also bug in the dining experience is the hoast of flies that will contest to share your meal.

In our room, lights were not working, the heater of the shower was not working, and neither was the air conditioning - which was the most uncomfortable part. Further, it took several calls before a tachnician was finally sent to fix 1of the 3 issues.

Unique Qualities: Every room has a seaview, and nightly live jazz band. Every night at 9.30pm the hotel's Sega dancers and musicians come on. After seeing a few Sega dances, this hotel does feature some talents that are worth hanging around till late to appreciate their whole act. A spa and water sports house that has everything from kite surfing to wind surfing, surfing, snorkelling and diving. A wonderful pool house that offers ladies aqua arobics. And even a surf wear shop for those who forgot to pack for the beach!
