QuestionsAccommodation-HotelsI have been researching but just cannot decide where to stay
Anonymous asked 4 months ago

Good morning to you all, I found this website yesterday and it's been so helpful!! I am planning our first visit next September from the UK. It will be a surprise for my husband's 50th birthday 🎂 I have been researching but just cannot decide where to stay. The West coast is the most appealing because it is warmer and I understand the East Coast to be quite windy. However, the hotels within my (very small!) budget are all on the East coast. We will only be able to do around eight nights. I guess my questions are... 1. Is it terribly windy on the East generally? 2. I have been looking at all inclusive. Neither of us drink alcohol but obviously the soft drinks will be included. I am not sure how expensive they are to just pay for them. Also, I am thinking half board because there is no way we'd eat three meals a day or any snacks. I would really appreciate any help please. I have never been so indecisive but I want it to be right for him. Thank you so much and wishing you all a wonderful Christmas 🎄 ❤️

We stayed at Veranda Palmar Beach Hotel and it was fab. So much selection for food and drink. I’d still go all inclusive weather great. And with all Inc you can request packed lunch to take with you on excursions

I personally would go self catering. Go enjoy the Island and what the locals have to offer. The best food, beautiful people and lovely sights

In September the west Coast is definetely warmer and less windy than the east coast.
Why don’t you think about renting an apartment with a small budget? Have a look at Flic en Flac..

We stayed All Inclusive at Lagoon Attitude earlier this month and it was fabulous. They offer half board also, plus are very reasonably priced we found. It’s an adult only resort which made for a very relaxing stay.

Flic en flac on west is best for first visit. There’s everything there. Weather great September.

Well there are spots in the East where it is windy. But it’s not like the wind bursts in all directions and all day long 😁. If you are renting a car anywhere is fine. You will be able tk enjoy several places/museums/beaches. If you will take public transport as locals do, the East is far away from the capital. Try veranda hotels in the north. It is quite affordable. I think they are 3 and 4 stars. The 5 stars and 5 stars luxury(highest ratings) are out of your budget according to the information given.
Wishing you a merry Christmas and good luck for your search. In the East Ambre hotel is nice for couples and very affordable.

The East coast is fab. You’ll be glad of the breeze/wind!! Have a look at the Lagoon Attitude Hotel, best holiday I’ve ever had! Enjoy.

The East is windy in Winter, less in Summer. It all depends what you expect of a holiday : peace and quiet, go to the East, more commercialised, go to the North but the West is also fine ( not my favourite and I am Mauritian) and the South is wild and breathtakingly beautiful

Another vote for self catering, book flights and apartment yourself and you’ll find it much cheaper and you may be able to have longer than 8 days.

In my opinion all inclusive is best for a couple of reasons…
If you are there with kids, who want drinks and snacks constantly or you want to base yourself there for your holiday and totally chill at pool and beach with everything at hand and no worries about budgeting for eating out ect..

If your plans are to venture out daily then half board would be better (breakfast and evening meal).

I generally go all inclusive as i have tried and tested how much thngs cost/add up over the holiday and definitely works out cheaper, but budget for eating out a couple of night per week (we go 2 weeks at a time). The only downside to all inclusive is if your fussy eater, the meals can seem repetitive and boring, but I’ve never had issues with this personally.

Have fun whatever you do.

Have you looked at Pearl Beach Hotel in Flic en Flac? They are usually a good price. No need for all inclusive as plenty of places close by to eat that have varied menus and very reasonable prices. There are also shops to buy any alcohol and far cheaper than the hotels.
