Holiday review by Daphne Vanessa Scholfield

Date of trip: 04/03/2011
Number of people: 2
Country: Mauritius

Overall level of Satisfaction

Tribes Overall: "Overall experience was good but let down by the catering arrangements at hotel and the awful flight out with Air Mauritius."
Tribes Service: "Julie Croucher was very helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. Dealing with a small specialist trave company is definitely a real plus."
Guides: "Excellent"
Social & Environmental Responsibility: "The Les Aigrettes conservation programme on the island of Les Aigrettes is excellent and to be recommended."


Preskil Island Resort
Hotel accomodation in a penthouse well worth the additional expense but do ensure you get one overlooking the beach. The food in the main restaurant was really dissapointing and because so many other guests were on all inclusive the buffet was a free for all in the evening. The other two restaurants charged a substantial premium over and above the half board option we had elected for. Drinks are also very expensive. The hotel location and style is wonderful and the staff are really excellent - friendly and helpful. Please ask the French manager to sort out the catering in the main restaurant. The French and Germans all eat very early and decimate the buffet very early every evening. Also the quality of the food in this restaurant was below par. Tribes REPLY: These comments are noted and we are taking this up with the hotel managers.
