September 2011. Warm welcome from delightfull staff and pleasant surprise of a room upgrade from standard to Nirvana sea view. These are in a two-storey block at the north end of the hotel which meant we had a five minute stroll to reception. Downside of Nirvana area is the beach which has suffered a lot of sand erosion and it's necessary to use some form of foot protection when entering the water. The rooms are quite spacious but the toilet cubicle is so small that it's difficult to close the door while sitting.
Staff were all very attentive and helpful. Food in the LaFaya was very good. The Cumin (Indian) was fair and the 180 restaurant (buffet) was fair also albeit repetitive despite their being a different theme each night of the week. Didn't try Shells (fish only) as there wasn't anything on the menu that appealed.
Considering it's on an island, there wasn't a great variety of fish on offer, it was always simply "fish" with no further description.
There are no restaurants in the vicinity for those not on HB or AI so a taxi journey every night would need to be budgeted for; pleased we went AI.

Just got back from staying at this hotel, we stayed in the Nivana side of the hotel and the weather was great. The staff in particular Nicholas and Vimel who work in La Faya Restaurant couldn't do enough for us. The food was outstanding in the La Faya and ended up eating there most evenings. The room was large and clean and the pool staff went beyond the call of duty. We would definately recommend this hotel.

My partner was so impressed he is now going to write his thoughts!

Great food, great beer, great staff, great place .... enough said, lol!

Room tip: Would definately stay in the Nivana side of this hotel - adults only.

Went for honeymoon in Mauritius (during March’11) & stayed at this hotel property. Booked a 'Nirvana Sea View' Room which was simply superb, calm & relaxing with an adult only swimming pool along the sea side. Amazing rooms, very clean, free internet, complimentary drinks every evening by the pool, complimentary fruits in room every day, very courteous staff, a lot of beach side games – snorkeling, water ski, wind surfing, glass boat ride. A wide range of restaurants including an Indian cuisine one (Cumin’s) were nice. Even tried Yoga, Steam Shower, Sauna (The Jacuzzi was under repair then), the couples massage.. An overall exhilarating experience!!

(Lost my fast track sun glasses on the hotel property on the last day which I hope to get during my next stay ;)

Room tip: "Nirvana Sea side is a seperate Adults only block - so a lot calm"

We have previously stayed at Le Meridien in Dahab, Egypt and this one beats that one. We got the deal through the BA website, and then upgraded to all inclusive when we got there (stupidly - should have done it with BA). Excellent big room, with sea/sunset view. Didn't feel very busy with plenty of space on the beach etc, even though they said they were close to full. Good variety of restaurants, and good food. Good all inclusive watersports, including wakeboarding/waterskiing amazingly. Weather is often great here too (even in september), and when the rest of the island is covered in clouds. Zero negative comments about mauritius or Le Meridien.

I visited Mauritius In the month of June 2010 with my wife. We stayed here for 6n/7d.
The hotel is Huge but very well maintained. The check in was a bit slow. We were upgraded to a higher category room in the nirvana section which is private wing which is a kids free zone.Its the best wing for couples on a honeymoon. The rooms were great, very spacious, nice bathroom and sea facing.
The breakfast was good so was the buffet dinner.
The service in the Nirvana wing was outstanding with very friendly staff.
They have lots of land and sea activities some of which are complimentry.
Then they have a Complimentry Cocktail and Snacks hour in the evening which you sholdn't miss as the evening views from the outside bar are amazing.
Overall its a fantastic holiday destination.

Room tip: Nirvana wing is the best. opt for sea facing rooms.
