Lovely place to stay
Very comfortable apartment fronting the pool which we all enjoyed. The apartment is very well located to nearby shops and to the lovely beach.
Transfers were organised for us as were car rentals and everybody we dealt with were very nice and helpful.
When we arrived at Abrico apartments and were big shown around by Eileen, I have to be honest, our hearts sank! This apartment has does not appear to be have been ‘newly renovated’ as advertised!
For a start, the door on the 3rd bedroom locks automatically, Eileen did warn us about this but I misunderstood what she had said and closed the door behind me one day to find it had locked. We spent a frantic 20 minutes trying to pick the lock when we found a key on the light switch in the 2nd bedroom which unlocked it. This has all sorts of safety implications that I’m sure I don’t need to explain
There were dirty marks all over every wall in the property, broken furniture, dirty curtains and voiles, there were stains on the bed covers in the 2nd bedroom and everything just generally looked and smelt unclean and seemed old
There was no wardrobe in the main bedroom, which wasn’t so much a problem for us as we used the wardrobes in the other rooms but if the other two rooms were being used that would not have been possibly
The top of the toilet in the en-suite had been broken in several places at some point and glued together which looked really shabby, the toilet roll holder was broken and the tap was really loose
The main bathroom looked dirty and old.
The kitchen looked like the only part of the apartment which could possibly have been renovated but in my opinion this would have been some years ago. There was no hot water available in the kitchen sink and the utility area looked really dirty. I intended to do more cooking than I did as I couldn’t face using the facilities. One evening we were greeted with a cockroach on the kitchen floor, which scurried behind the units when we appeared. Whilst I realise cockroaches are unavoidable in hotter climates it was just another thing to add to our list of disappointment
The patio area was reasonably nice, although the furniture was a bit dated and there was a broken light on the veranda
This property did have a few good points. A good location, there was good water pressure for the showers, a good hairdryer provided, good air conditioning in the main bedroom, a nice pool area, English plug sockets had been fitted throughout which was of benefit to us being from the UK, there was always parking in a shady spot available and it was in a good location
Whilst we understand this property was cheap and we were not expecting 5 star luxury, we were expecting clean and furniture and fitting that weren’t broke
Abrico, great value for money, best beach
We stayed at Abrico for 2 weeks, four of us, and loved it. The apartment has everything you need, has guarded parking, refreshing swimming pool. We had cleaning every other day. Jeannine was very kind, waited for us when we arrived and provided all the info we needed, and offered help, but we did not need it, since everything worked perfectly.
The neighbours were quiet, mostly families or older couples. you may use two beaches, Trou aux Biches or Mont Choisy. We preferred Mont Choisy, it is more than km long, in a bay, has good facilities, lots of food stands, natural shade, great for swimming. We drove all around the island and agreed our choice was the best. The NOrthwest is not windy and has less rain than the South. If I went to Mauritius again, I would choose the same apartment
Very reasonably priced. Neat and tidy apartment close to all amenities inc the excellent Mon Choisy and Trou Aux Biches beaches.Very warm welcome by Janine, who was absolutely wonderful and attentive.Monsieur John Fraser ( maintenance man and gate keeper) was also always happy to help. Apartment owner Eileen was also most helpful and co operative.Close proximity to pool is also a big plus.Will definitely stay again when in Mauritius.
Close to beach. Nice area. Awesome people!
I would love to thank Eileen for a great week! Thank you for making the start of my honeymoon exceptional. Big thank you for the flowers and champagne and fruits and juice. We enjoyed our stay very much! Excellent! 10 stars! Will definately recommend to everyone! Close to Grand Baie, close to beach (great snorkeling spot), close to superb little restaurant with excellent food, great pool for cooling down. It was quiet, relaxing and we had the most charming hosts! A very BIG thank you!! Love, P.
Great place for family
A wonderful place to stay for a family of five. Our kids enjoyed having the pool so close, as a matter of fact, we basically had the pool and place to ourselves for the duration of our stay. Transport to and from the airport was arranged by the owner. We were greeted upon arrival by the helpful Jeannine, and the maid Margaret kept the place clean and tidy. The watchman was very helpful in giving advise, and he brought the children gifts and coconuts to taste. We were sad to bid him goodbye when we left, and we promised to return one day. We rented a car from Grand Baie (they brought it here for us, and also picked it up again at the end of our stay), and drove around most of the island. Nowhere were the beaches as pretty as here, never have we been as lucky to find the perfect spot on an island.
We rented glass-bottom boat for snorkelling on several occasions, just on the beach. The best time was early in the morning. The kids loved the L´Aventure du Sucre (Sugar factory and museum), especially with all the tasting, and we bought lots of different types of sugar to bring back home. The Bois Cheri tea factory was also worth a visit, we are still drinking coco-vanilla tea that we brought back home, dreaming of our wonderful Mauritius summer.
Our mornings were spent breakfasting on the porch - french style with baguettes, cheese and jam. Again we always had the place to ourselves.
We truly hope to be back soon.
