The rooms are next to a horse stable and it smell very bad at night though they provide a scent burner. The receptionist/barman insist on keeping your ID although you have paid for the rooms upon check in and no one is available if u leave early (i did informed though). There is no minibar in the room!

At Esprit Libre you have a good choice of breakfast, from a french to english breakfast with fresh fruits and juices from chateau Labourdonnais. You can even have lunch and dinner at the hotel, or have a piece of lemon cake in the afternoon (which I would suggest you'd try😋). If you go out on an early day trip you...

They serve mauritian/ fusion food of very good quality. We had steaks, ombrine fish as main. Price around rs700 to rs800 for main courses. The place is ideal...

We stayed at the guest house for five nights. The rooms were exactly as shown on the website's images and very clean. You can choose from a wide breakfast selection. The pool area is okay for a "cool down" and a lazy afternoon and if you want to swim and enjoy a day in the water the beautiful Mont Choisy...

The restaurant is quite good but often empty. But the guesthouse is going down. Rooms should be refurbished, the common areas are gone because they expanded the restaurant, the swimming pool is small and full on the sun. Just commercial, no cozy feeling. Not a guesthouse, just a bunch of second class rooms, mostly empty. You must pay cash in...

The room was spacious. A little worn out but it is fine.. Good location - walkable distance to a few corner shops, Mon Choisy beach (with food trucks) supermarket. The front desk staff was friendly but VERY hard sell and pushy. We had dinner there on the first night - the mauritian tapas was really good.. But the mains were...
