La Tonnelle great stay
Host Denis was very professional, helpful, efficient and friendly. He spoke many languages French, English, German Italian. The staff were very helpful also. The room with garden view was clean, quiet and spacious. Location on main road was easy to find but not noisy. Parking opposite hotel. Restaurant service excellent with set menu or a la carte. Other restaurants and shops within walking. Trou aux Biches beach also walking distance or sit on rock wall watching sunset. The reflection of setting sun on water appears red like fire. Would definitely stay again when in Mauritius

What a wonderful discovery. La Tonnelle is run by a delightful host, Denis, who knows the island inside and out and has lots of wonderful stories and suggestions. The rooms are simple and comfortable, and the hotel is just a few steps away from one of the nicest beaches on the island. Walking distance from restaurants (though food at the hotel is great too) and supermarkets and pharmacy. Though the hotel isn't beachfront, there is a private beach club, where you can rent lounges and umbrellas for a minimal fee, is nearby, so you can still get the resort experience with out paying resort prices.

Noton beach like pics, by has its own dive school
First of all, it NOT on the beach. You must exit the property and either walk across the road for a beach view ONLY (it’s the fish dock). OR walk 400-500 paces for beach access. That being said, the staff were friendly and welcoming and food was good for dinner

Comfortable Stay
The room was a little small for a big guy like me. The staff was helpful and friendly. The beach is across the street, but nicer a little bit down the beach. Restaurants and bars close at hand.

Excellent value for money
Denis and Veronique were excellent hosts. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was tasty but unvaried each day. My room was beautifully clean and recently tastefully redecorated. The only serious downside to the accomodation was the mattress was indescribablely hard (like concrete) to the point that I got a sore back and neck that was only remedied after 3 massages!

Convenient guesthouse at a great location
A convenient base to explore the northern part of Mauritius, especially in a rental car. The beautiful beach is just 50m away.
