What our happy honeymooners have to say!
From: Gerhard Els
Good day All,
Ambre (Ahm as the locals pronounce it) was awesome. Mauritius is stunning and we could really not have ask for a better spot and destination for our honeymoon. The resort was stunning, service was excellent. All inclusive package is extremely comprehensive and a definite must.
There is too much to do in Maurituis so option #1 is the best...stay at the resort which has three restuarants, two bars (they will bring your drink to you no matter where you are) a pub with a night club. The pool is big and overlook the beach. The beach is clean and the water...no words can describe this aspect of Mauritius..the water was spectacular. The resort offers an array of watersport that is completely free...and even when you crash a sailboat like me, when they swear in french it still sounds romantic. Snorkelling is a must!
There are motorised watersport available... from 3rd parties like; skiing, parasailing (we did this twice) tubes and lots more.
Activities to do outside the resort: full day Catamaran trip (this was the absolute hi-lite of our holiday) quad biking or horseback riding up the mountain, as mentioned there is really to much to do...we did the quad biking...it was awesome!
Travel & Transfers was very easy and customs on both sides up & down was quick and smooth...even in JHB they welcomed us back with over enthusiasm..lol
With any good there is bad, luckily the good outweighed the bad by tonnes.
The hot water takes long to heat up and even then at best is under luke warm. Live entertainment in the evenings only play for an hour, after dinner this was nice but just as the mood is being set it stops.
Mauritius international departure booking is 3 hours before the time, add the 1 hour trip from the resort and this was n bit of a hassle waking up before 04:00 to depart at 09:15 also going to Mauritius the time difference plays an extreme roll as they are two hours ahead...plan accordingly
Thank you Michelle & Ed for your friendly service and for making our honeymoon dreams come true...
