Anbody know any 5* hotel giving special rates for honeymoon? Mauritian Rates......
When I got to a hotel I call up the one I want to go to and negotiate, it usually works for me. Call around and say things like 'Preskil offered me X amount for a day/week' etc. Other than that you may need to visit their website to check for any special offers.
TBH I don't really care about the state of the beach since my stay will be for a honeymoon. I guess most of the time spent will be somewhere else :)
What I'm looking for is mostly a romantic place with great room, food and quality service.
I had more than a dozen quotations up to now but then it depends on the budget as well since i'm planning to invite 10 guests for a dinner on one of them nights.
I'm looking something ranging 7k to 9k p/n.
It depends on what your looking for, I love a pristine beach and maybe spa facilities. Others don't care much for a beach and prefer fine dining and watersports. Personally I cannot stand Flic en Flac the beach is terrible, too much coral that hurt my feet, plus its very touristic and over priced but that's just me.
What are you looking for, then maybe I can suggest a few places?
You seem very accustomed to hotels here so basically you can suggest me with one where you had the best experience.
I would prefer something in flic-en-flac or in the northern part.
Yeah they don't display Mauritian tariff on the websites but when you call they tell you, its like they don't want Mauritians to come to the hotel but when I go I have always gotten a first class service.
Definitely try 'Mauritian style bargaining' there's nothing to lose :)
Thanks for the precious info. I didn't know you could do it the mauritian style here, I mean by bargaining!! But I'll defo give it a try.
I did try most hotel's website but they don't display Mauritian tariff.
Most offers are advertised in the local newspapers. So check Lexpress and Le Mauricien for up to date deals. By the way, are you looking for honeymoon or valentines deals? Hotels usually do honeymoons deals for tourists, not mauritians as far as I'm aware...
