Just perfect to me

  • March 2015
This was my 15th stay at Mauritius and my 2nd at Intercontinental Mauritius. Again, my holidays at Intercontinental have been to my full expectations and I hope to return in 2016. The resort ist impressive because of a beautiful location, a tasteful and unique ambiance, an international atmosphere and a large and quiet beach with well spaced (for me very important) beach umbrellas. The rooms are tastefully designed, the furnishing is well thought through. For me it´s just perfect. The Boothouse is one of the most important institution for me and I am happy that (again) my wishes for a ... daily memorable snorkeling experience were fulfilled. 4 restaurants bring culinary variety and offer good food. Service is warm and friendly. I enjoyed the rich breakfast buffet in the main restaurant, my favorite restaurant for dining (fish and seafood) is Segala. However, the principal reason why I feel most comfortable at Intercontinental is the friendliness and the heartfelt hospitality of so many motivated stuff members. The individual service in all areas which is tailored to suit my wishes and needs make me feel very welcome and happy. This is the Mauritian hospitality to be found under good working conditions which is, of course, a result of good management. Big thanks to all the highly motivated team members who made this wonderful holidays possible. read hotel review

Very nice and relaxing location and friendly staff. The rooms are very spacious and overlooking the sea, the food and service in the senso restaurant not too recomenndable though but the rest are very good. If you need any information on the island kevin the concierge is the man !! Milan thr barman in the lobby makes the best cocktail ever. In general i would recommend this hotel. read hotel review

Thank you for a very pleasant stay. It was a very refreshing experience. Unfortunately we had one or two difficulties. I believe the hotel could have been more helpful to us. The taps in the batroom were broken and even though One light in the bathroom did not work. This caused us much difficulty. An attempt madeto solve the problem but without success. This kind of attention to problems does not speak well about the intercontinental hotel. The food was excellent and all the members staff are outstanding people. Thank you for a wonderful holiday nevertheless. read hotel review

The hotel and rooms are fantastic and the service was worthy of praise. A special mention to the DIrector of Guest Services - Shaun as well as the manager Kunal as their service and responsiveness to handle any situation was noteworthy. In addition Harsh the indian chef for break fast, Kooshal and Arun at reception and concierge were also very friendly and helpful. It was wonderfully relaxing and unwinding experience which i will look forward for coming back to soon. read hotel review

The hotel has extreamly high standards and the cleanliness and attention to detail with the daily servicing of the room is beyond 5 star. By far the best overall level of excellence i have had the pleasure of experiencing. read hotel review

Shaky Start but... It got Better & Better

  • January 2015
I had been in communication with the hotel (regarding limousine transfer, All Inclusive package & a room with an unobstructed Sea View) during the months prior to arrival for our fortnight's holiday. to ensure that everything would be perfect ready for when we arrived, as this was booked to celebrate my wife's 40th Birthday. (We stayed 4th Jan - 18th Jan 2015) Unfortunately, on arrival at the airport we had been forgotten about by the hotel & no limousine was waiting for us. Eventually (after contacting the hotel) our limousine arrived to collect us to transfer to the hotel - ... we had been left waiting for 1 hour at the arrivals hall. As a Platinum Ambassador of the IHG Rewards Programme, I was extremely disappointed with the hotel management that they could treat a loyal customer in this manner. On arrival at the hotel, we were greeted warmly by the Guest Relations staff who proceeded to check us in. When they advised that I was staying on a Room only basis, alarm bells started to ring & I had to advise them that I had been in communication with the hotel to pre-arrange the All Inclusive package. by this point, I was really not happy !!! They advised that this would be resolved and then allocated us Room 1221 (Jacuzzi Suite). We were escorted to the room and all facilities shown to us (safe, Jacuzzi etc.). The Guest Relations member of staff then left us. I then went onto the balcony to observe the view !!! There was only a view of palm leaves, we could barely see anything of the beach / ocean. Fuming, I returned immediately to reception and requested to speak to management staff in order to resolve the issues. One of the management staff came to see me almost immediately and set about rectifying the issues I had brought to his attention. We were offered a next day room change, a further upgrade to the Presidential Suite for the last few days of our holiday (as they were fully booked until then) and a Private Island Dinner. This, I agreed would be fair recompense for the problems encountered in the first few hours of our holiday. The following day, my wife & I approached the Guest Relations staff to find out what time we would be moving rooms and we were then approached by the Chief Concierge (Kevin Ritoo). Kevin took an avid interest in the issues we had had with the previous day and almost immediately our holiday experience changed. it got Better & Better !!!! Kevin personally saw to it that we were given the best "available" room with sea view (Room 1625) and arranged for V.I.P. treatment at all of the speciality restaurants for the next few days. I have to say, Kevin & his team (O'Bryan, Arun & all of the Bell Boys) were fantastic & always went out of their way to ensure everything was in place to make our holiday special. Thank You all !!!! At the Manager's "Welcome" Cocktail Party we were introduced to Shirley Emery (Guest Relations Manager) and after a couple of minutes Shirley realised who we were & expressed her apologies for the treatment we were subjected to on Day 1. From that moment on, Shirley always made sure that whenever she saw us, she always made a point of ensuring we were being looked after. (She also ensured that we were moved a day earlier than expected, to the Presidential Suite with the best view of all the rooms in the hotel - The "Pheonix" Suite - Room 1823). If you encounter any issues when visiting this hotel, ensure that you raise your concerns with either Shirley or Kevin. They will help & in fact, thrive on the opportunity to assist guests. It is pointless bottling up your problems when they are on-hand to resolve them. These guys are a credit to the IHG Brand. Despite Cyclone Bansi affecting the weather. we found that we were enjoying our Mauritian experience immensely, despite the shaky start. as almost all of the staff (from Room Attendants, Waiters, Bar Staff through to Management) were friendly & wanted to make the guest holiday experience a special one. I stay in many IHG Branded Hotels every year. the staff in this hotel are some of the friendliest I have met. Special mentions must go to the following staff, as they went over & above to ensure our holiday went smoothly: Kevin Ritoo (Chief Concierge), Shirley Emery (Guest Relations Manager), O'Bryan (Concierge), Arun (Concierge), Savina (Waitress in Palm Bar), Siham (Waiter in the Palm Bar / Beach), Jay (Room Attendant - Room 1823), Rajiv (Manager - Segala), Christophe (Waiter - Segala) & Patrick (Waiter - Veda). All in all, after the initial disappointment. everyone went out of their way to ensure the holiday experience was extra special (most other guests we spoke to also felt that the staff did their utmost to ensure the holiday experience for all guests was special). The hotel rooms are of an excellent standard for a resort hotel. (even the standard rooms are excellent), however. The Presidential Suites are just "Wow". Superb in every way !!!!!, The restaurants (speciality & the Senso buffet restaurant) all serve the most fantastic food & catered for every need, The Bar's - although the service could be slow, were all in fine settings & well tended. The grounds, Beach & Island. stunning !!!! Would we go back, given that we had initial problems??? Oh yes, without hesitation. Say no more !!!!!! read hotel review

After mistakenly being situated in a lower room category than booked the hotel upgraded us to presidential suite. Very nice. Over all the staff was very accommodating, friendly and polite. The cleanliness was good but could be slightly improved. The a la carte restaurants are awesome with respect to quality of food and service!!! We enjoyed our stay very much and consider the hotel very recommendable! read hotel review
