"The Residence Mauritius is a really wonderful hotel in the East Coast. It has a lovely, rich, colonial feel about it. The hotel is very grand with high ceilings at the entrance and lovely views from the entrance halls and main pool/restaurant area. The hotel rooms are very spacious, carrying that colonial style throughout. The food is definitely worth writing home about!"
