    Water whine...”

    Location, cuisine, and cleanliness.

    We enjoyed a lovely three night stay at Le Cardinal. The experience was somewhat marred, however, by alcohol prices that are little short of outrageous. Whilst I understand that Mauritius is an island, and that there are import duties and middlemen, paying as much for single bottle of South African wine as would yield no fewer than ten bottles of the same wine from a retail outlet in South Africa, smacks of profiteering on a grand scale. Even local rums are massively overpriced and detracted from enjoyment of a cocktail on the beach lounger. Also, the practice of only providing complimentary bottled water for the guests on the first night leaves a bad impression. Bottled water of the quality provided (not Perrier or even San Pellegrino)- I think the brand was Crystal, is inexpensive enough to provide to guests on a gratis basis. The goodwill generated will far outweigh the minimal cost.

    Great cost-benefit for a luxury resort”

    Le Cardinal is indeed an Exclusive Resort. A limited number of rooms, great location and comfort. We were lucky to get an upgraded room (duplex with an amazing sea view)! The restaurant offers a very interesting menu, great cost-benefit if you include dinner in your reservation. The boat house offers several activities for free, which can also save you some money. Nice beach and superb place to watch the sunset! Negative point: The staff was sometimes too kind and too insistent to please.

    location, room quality, few guests

    Le Cardinal is in an excellent location. Hotel is small and has a few guests which is perfect. The rooms are a perfect size and very comfortable. The beach is a few metres away and not packed. Hotel staff are friendly and the hotel itself is well maintained. A definite must to spend a holiday in Mauritius.

    Beautiful location, excellent hotel”

    Location, food & room

    We couldn't ask for more, the hotel was great, the room was excellent. The only problem with Le cardinal is if you want to go out during the night, since the night starts at 6pm (winter), because you are going to need a taxi if you are not renting a car. For that we would recommend having half board. The food was amazing, you have plenty of choices and the "suggestion of the day", some traditional mauritian food, unfortunately some suggestions cost extra money. The staff was all very helpful, the service was excellent. We definitely recommend this hotel for couples or honeymooners but one problem is maybe that check out is too early (11am).

    Friendly staff it nice touches like the nightly tasting and the welcoming reception The made to order breakfast was excellent especially the omlett and bacon! The quiet grounds

    Very good. Would come again!!! The staff was nice, the food was good, and there was always an open beach chair. I enjoyed how peaceful it was. Loved everything about the hotel except the pesky cat that came around during every meal and literally begged for food to the point of almost jumping in your lap. Some travelers didn't mind it but I hate cats. I'd give Le Cardinal a perfect 10 if that cat wasn't so annoying!

    Embittered pleasure”

    We booked for 1 week in Jan. 2018 but left earlier because of a cyclone. Thus, we stayed just 4 nights. Short reckonings make long friends: We had to pay for the entire week including meals without any compensation! Statement: Our booking would be a flat rate. "Le Cardinal" treats every premature departure as "no show". Impressions: Pros: location right on the seashore, tranquility, beautiful green area, spacious rooms with ceiling fan and air conditioning, breakfast buffet, good manners of the staff, good work of the room service and security service. Cons: measly portions at a la carte dinner, all sorts of supplements despite half board, unheard level of drinks prices, rather average beach with lots of sharp coral, free but outdated water sports equipment (eg surfboard at least 30 years, sails not trimmed), control of the exit and entrance, in-crowd mood. Conclusion: value for money suboptimal, comfort disturbed in our case. Next time choose another accommodation.

    Amazing service and right on the beach”

    food, service, beachside

    This was a nice quiet hotel for couples with only about a dozen rooms. The food was amazing and service was impeccable (sometimes almost too good-- just make sure you always keep your DND sign up when you are in the room and don't want to be bothered). The room was large and comfortable with a big central bathtub. All rooms have a view over the ocean and a little balcony. The beach is right on the doorstep with nice loungers but the sand is inclined toward the beach, almost too much to be comfortable on the loungers. The extras (lunch, drinks) are very expensive so bring your own drinks for the room and eat lunch at other places along the road. The activities are linked to the neighbouring sister hotel and the service there was mediocre. Bring your own snorkel gear if you want to snorkel right off of the beach. If you go on the glass bottom boat/snorkelling ride, you will have to put up a stink if you want to borrow fins-- else you will only get a mask. Much of the coral is sadly very dead.

    The luxury of the room and the closeness to the beach as well as the privacy.

    Everything was GREAT!! We were so pleased and would recommend this place to anyone. I especially like how small the place is so it becomes really private and romantic. The only negative thing I have to say is that the girl who was working on the weekend in the reception was very rude when we were checking out. The other girl who I believe is working there during the week was extremely helpful, polite and nice.
