BEAUTIFUL VILLAS WITH AN AMAZING LOCATIONPosted Jul 8, 2014
Cons: Drinking water and tea/coffee sachets MUST be provided in rooms, AND be replenished on a daily basis.
Location: Great eating places- The Bouganvilla, Comodone, The 7 Pizzas The public beach The Cascavelle mall
The hotel is ideal for families with kids as well as for couples. They have a fabulous breakfast spread, a beautiful beach in front with amazing sunsets everyday, very helpful staff (Avi at guest relations was specially helpful), and a great pool. One of the best parts of the hotel is the water sports they offer to the guests, many of which, including snorkeling are free. Golfers have an added benefit of not having to pay a substantial green fees for a round of golf at their partner hotel on the Isle au Cerf. However, we were quite taken aback that NO drinking water OR tea/coffee sachets are provided to the rooms! We felt that given the price and the quality maintained by the hotel, this small gesture of hospitality is a necessity, especially given that hotels all over the world follow it as a standard practice! Other than this inconvenience, we had an amazing stay.

Beautiful old-style beach hotel, great with a babyPosted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: The best thing about La Pirogue is the staff who go out of their way to please and make sure you have a great stay.
Cons: Please don't change the general style of the thatched bungalows and grounds with palm trees! Could do with an interior makeover, a minor quibble.
Location: West coast. Plenty of activities in hotel included; lovely public beaches too. Casela bird sanctuary. Domaine Anna reasonable food, beautiful setting
You can't beat this if you're travelling with a small baby. Beautiful thatched separate bungalows allow privacy for you and your neighbours. Though they are looking a bit old now in terms of the internal decor, they are spotless, comfortable and that includes cot beds with a pretty decent mattress for our 6 month old baby who slept very well during the holiday. The beachside setting is lovely and one of the things that stands out is that the grounds are spacious with beautiful gardens that you can stroll around with your pushchair quite easily (not easy to do outside the hotel as there is a general lack of pavements in mauritius). The adjacent Sugar Beach connects with it (younger crowd, more generic modern hotel) so you can walk through into it as well. The most outstanding attribute of this hotel though are its staff who couldn't do enough to help us. They love babies and our little one made plenty of friends around the place. Feeding was easy with facilities for sterilising bottles in the kids' club and preparing fresh pureed meals was no trouble for the chef. Food overall was good; the breakfasts in particular were amazing (we went for lunch rather than the dinner buffet option so I can;t comment on this). There's a lovely on-site nurse as well. Everything just made our trip with the little one so relaxing and enjoyable

Dream HolidayPosted Jan 12, 2014
From the time you arrive, to the time you leave, you are treated like absolute royalty. The all inclusive package is a must. The resort has a 4 star rating, but is all 5 star in my books. The food is of the highest quality, with a very wide variety to choose from. I thoroughly recommend this resort to anybody, who is looking for a piece of paradise, with exceptional service and quality. Thank you La Pirogue. For making this holiday truely unforgettable. We will be seeing you again, very soon.

Wonderful friendly hotel with great staffPosted Nov 16, 2013
Pros: The spacious bungalows close to the beach, lots of sun loungers, very friendly staff, fantastic food - delicious grilled fresh fish and meat.
Cons: Some of the evening entertainment was a little cheesy. If not full-board the extra food and drink is expensive but there is a supermarket nearby.
Location: I would advise hiring a car to explore the island - taxis can actually be a bit pricey. Flic-en-flac is very close to the National Park.

Aging, but packed with activities/servicesPosted Jun 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
LaPirogue was celebrating its 37th birthday while I was there; although a bit older than some other resorts, it more than makes up for any shortcomings from make-overs (every ten years or so) with nice facilities and activities. The resort is comprised of many thatch roofed duplexes, with peaked roofs suggesting sail shapes, which are arranged in coves. Lawns for bocce and croquet; pools that manage to be large and cozy at the same time; sailboats, paddle boats, snorkeling gear, and ping pong tables are available to all. Vendors offering sportfishing and scuba are right on property at the beach. To top it all off, the all-inclusive package lets customers also eat and drink at the sister resort on adjacent property. It's a short bus or taxi (a bit pricey everywhere on Mauritius) ride to the village of Flic-en-Flac, but I comfortably walked it.

Good ExperiencePosted May 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall it was a good experience staying at La Pirogue. Would like to particularly mention the courteous restaurant staff and the Chefs who prepared Vegetarian menu for us. However the resort charged extra for my little daughter which they could have waived considering the age of the child. The Kids club is good and so are the facilities.

racial discremination in 21st centuryPosted Jan 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel staff especially the waiters racially discreminated us and it was really painful.
