SM Lodge is a cheap place to stay in Trou d'eau Douce. The rooms are clean and reasonably modern. People running the place are nice. A breakfast is served at a time of your choosing and it is well worth the money. The wifi is good enough. The location is close to the main road but stiil quiet and as the rooms are on the third floor you escape the mosquito plague of Mauritius. A minus is distance to the beach. A marina is 500 meters away, a bad beach is a km away and a good beach is 2 km away. Still thats why this place is cheap.
Perfect for families... The rooms are clean and at affordable prices. Nicely located(attending two days wedding in the east and it suited us very well) and close to all facilities. I recommend that you opt for breakfast-toast,jam,butter,tea,coffee,omelets and fruits and juice as well. Value for money deal. Above all the staff is very nice and helpful.
I was looking for a reasonably priced lodging on the same side of the island as the airport, for a week's business trip, and selected SM Lodge based on the excellent reviews. They were not wrong! The place is neat and clean, a decent breakfast every morning if you want it, off street parking and very friendly and helpful staff. There's several very good local restaurants within 700m - I walked to them, as although it's not actually a tourist area, it's very safe. Shops and an ATM are handy. A well deserved 5* !
We stayed here over xmas for two weeks, me and my wife found it was the ideal starting point to visit the island with the added bonus of being able to come back and relax in the lodge before heading off out for dinner. The staff are the nicest and most helpful of any staff I have encountered throughout my travels around the world, it would not be easy to single out the best member of staff as they are all brill. The owner had a little party for all guests on boxing day with local food and drink and chatted with us all till the early hours. The rooms are clean and just the right size and the breakfast is just right to start off your long day of exploreing. Keep up the great work X.
