We visited this resort in June. This is winter in Mauritius and I worried that it was going to be too cold for us.
This wasn’t the case and actually the weather was perfect. I found 22 degrees here felt much warmer than it does back in Melbourne. We were shorts, t shirts and dresses during the day with a light jacket or cardigan in the evening.
I think June is a great time to visit as there aren’t as many other people and it was nice to have plenty of privacy and most things to ourselves. There were still enough people to give the place atmosphere when we wanted this though.
Baby Z’s first time in the water at the beach. It was perfect!
If I have to complain about something, it is the meal times. They do start half an hour earlier for families but 7pm is a bit late for us – usually the kids are in bed by then.
It wasn’t too much of a problem for the big kids. We would get them to have a nap and then they were ok. It was harder with Baby J though who we couldn’t get to sleep extra in the day to make up for it.
Definitely one of the biggest positives of Club Med are the staff. Everyone we came into contact with was friendly, helpful and just brilliant. As I mentioned above, we had a favourite attendant at meals who just made things so easy for us.
The ladies who would clean our room were brilliant. Not just because they made our rooms look amazing but because they would help out if we were in there. One day, I was there alone with Baby J and Z and struggling to get them out of the door. She helped.
These are just two examples of what every staff member was like.
If you are considering family holidays to Mauritius, you would be crazy not to consider staying here.
We loved the Club Med experience and we can’t wait to do it again. I’ve already been checking out the ones in Asia and working out when we can next visit one. I can see a lot more Club Meds in our future! And I can see us returning to La Plantation d’Albion.
It is the most beautiful, wonderful holiday I have ever had.
