Lux Grand Gaube or Zilwa ??

I'm stuck !! Cannot decide whether to book at Grand Gaube or Zilwa resort. We are a family of 3 ( our son is 10 ). Any suggestions are very welcome ( even if at another resort).

Thank you in advance,

Leilani

I regard Lux Grand Gaube as the better hotel it is a 5* while Zilwa is 4*.

If the price is similar then go for the Lux.

We stayed at Zilwa end of November. I had looked at Lux but much more expensive and it was being renovated so that helped us decide!

We really enjoyed Zilwa. It’s quite spread out and seems to work for different groups ie couples, families etc. I would think it’s ideal for a 10yr old a good mix of activities and choices for dining.

The beach is man made but really not a problem. Swim shoes are a good idea for the swimming area as it can be uncomfortable to walk in the sea.

We are going back!
