Everything was good
I went for my 40th birthday in January this year 2003, what a holiday. Grand Baie is lovely, and about a 15 minute walk from the Merville Beach. The Merville Beach hotel was spottlessly clean and the staff were very helpful and most kind. I was given a birthday cake for my birthday and a anniversary meal for myself and my husband. They even went as far to put petals everywhere in our room in the evening, such a lovely guesture. We hired a taxi for the day and told the driver where we wanted to go, we agreed a price before leaving and he showed us other interesting places as well. The climate in January is the rainy season, short am or pm sharp bursts, but the humidity is a real problem, it was 100% each day we were there. The entertainment was ok for the first week but got a bit tedious in the second, but the heat and humidity knocks you out. A lot of french people go to Mauritius and whilst we were there large French parties made a lot of noise in the evening by the bar. If you are all inclusive you just sign a bill with your room number and there is obviously no charge. I really couldn't fault the hotel, location was perfect, our room was out of this world, try getting the rooms at the end of the hotel looking out to sea. We shared our room with a few lizards, but they didn't bother us, super holiday and would recommend this hotel, a must to go to Mauritius.
