  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Ravanela was truly outstanding. Stayed 11 days in Maurutius first at the Hilton in Flic En Flac which was also amazing then onto Ravanela. Our experience was cut short due to covid-19. The first day was unbelievable so many choices of restaurants food was great / pool was great. Not the best beachas the water isn't clear but that's not the hotels fault 😛 couldn't enjoy the last four days as Maurituis went into lockdown so ended up onky 50 of us in the hotel. The staff were great service did slip but understandable. Looking forward to coming back here 8n a few years to experience it properly.

Everything was perfect about the hotel/resort. Staff, Amenities, restaurants, rooms etc Only one complain and it's very important hence 4 stars instead of 5 stars. You charge for drinks at lunch and dinners for half board and full board guests. I mean you charge for water, tea, coffee and fruit juices at lunch and dinners I don't expect alcoholic drinks for free but water , tea coffee when you are full /half board it's not right. you need to review this policy. the quality of the hotel/resort doesn't reflect with this policy. Otherwise we had a good stay.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness

We liked 2 things: 1) cost that we paid to be in the area relative to other hotels; and 2) the size of the rooms (quite large). We were very disappointed with everything else. To start, Preet from the reception / checkin area was extremely rude and disrespectful to us. She needs to be removed from dealing with customers directly as she has no idea how to do this. There were lots of flies everywhere - at breakfast, at the dinner, at the beach BBQ, they are all over your food. The food options were also not good. Additionally, the sheets in the room were stained and the room was 15 minute walk from the reception. There were mattresses thrown in the hallways (dirty). All in, I would not recommend or stay here again - unless you just don’t have the money to stay elsewhere.
