Le Grand Bleu is a beautfiul property with a very friendly Staff.
The room we stayed in in slightly smaller and felt a bit cramped. However since it was on first floor and offered a decent view, we did not ask for a change. But for other guests who did, the hotel staff were more than happy to oblige.
The Hotel is right on the coast with beach just across the road. We had a great time going for an early morning walk and swim everyday. Dont forget to get the towels from the Hotel Gate before you go for the swim. The breakfast and dinner spreads are quite lavish ranging from Continental to Indian. The Restaurant bar is well stocked and prices are more or less the same you see in most Mauritian Restaurants if not a tad bit highers.
There are quite some activities around too - Blue Safari, the submarine safari is right next door. The hotel as it is though is a little away from most spots and will take a while to get to any place. This is a blessing in disguise as you get to see the peaceful seas not swarmed by tourists. Also since its on the western side of the island, the sea is calmer.
The hotel staff is friendly and are ready to make you feel welcome always. They can help you book taxi at almost no extra cost. We found the Taxi price similar. If you are a bit into exploring local transportation like us, you can take the Local Buses to travel - pretty cheap and get you there in decent time. If you feel adventurous though, you can hire a two wheeler right next door.
All in all, great property, great food, while a little far away, very calm and has one of the best beaches of Mauritius on offer.
