    • Advice on which area to stay in

      Mauritius Apr 23, 2015 at 2:33 AM

      Hi all,
      I am currently planning a trip to Mauritius in November together with my girlfriend and I would appreciate some advice as to which area to stay in. We are primarily looking for a relax-holiday with the odd side-trip to Port Louis and some natural highlights (Black River, Ile aux Cerfs).
      I'm currently considering breaking up our 2 week holiday into 2 parts, spending a week in one area of the island and a week in another one. I am thinking about 1) Flic-en-flac/Wolmar area, 2) Grand Baie or Trou aux Biches and 3) Belle Mare / Trou d'eau douce area.

      Basically I would like to spend one week in an area with some more 'action', where we would have the opportunity to eat out every night (rather than in the hotel restaurant(s)) and sample some local cuisine; then we'd spend one week in a quieter area in a resort just to relax.

      So now my question is: does any area in Mauritius offer the combination of a nice beach with some options to eat out along the beachfront? Any particular resort that would qualify? Is wind something that I should take into account while choosing an area to stay in November?

      Many thanks for your help!

      hi... i have been to Mauritius before... in 2008... with my husband and eldest son then just 2 years old... we stayed at the Casurina Hotel... we didn't really enjoy that trip... as there was no shops/supermarkets/malls/restaurants nearby...so to even buy water we had to take a bus to grand baie... and with a baby it was extremely difficult... so since the boys are bigger now... have a second boy now...we are giving Mauritius another chance... we waited for the boys to be much older ( 5 and 9 years) so that they can travel easier... i would love to know which hotel is the best location and is the most family suitable place to stay... i am looking for a nice family friendly hotel... with food places/ supermarkets ...activities and nightlife nearby.. for easy access
