Our family had a wonderful time in Flic en Flac, great beaches, beautiful places to visit and generally just a nice laid back kind of vibe to make it a real holiday. Our villa was fantastic, good location and the villa and surrounds were well kept by Eddy, Maryse and the friendly staff who really helped make our stay an enjoyable one, nothing was ever to much trouble. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave... Will be back again, merci beaucoup.
Staff were all friendly and helpful and spoke enough English for anyone without French to get by easily and be understood.
It is self catering, (SPAR shop was 10 mins walk away and well stocked), but Maryse who looks after the place will bring you breakfast and/or dinner if you want, (she has a menu for you to choose from) - she and her husband had local fish on the BBQ a couple of times during our stay. Having said that we ate out in some great local restaurants who were welcoming to the children too.
Maryse was also able to recommend car rental and a dolphin watching boat trip - and the person who arranged it for us came to the villa to talk to us about what we wanted and agree the price and then brought the car to us so it was hassle free.
Swimming pools were spotlessly clean as was the accommodation, (thank you Eddy), despite my 3 children bringing home plenty of sand from the beach!
Easy, flat 5 minute walk to the beach for adults was more like 10 minutes at my 2 year old's pace and stopping to look at the beautiful flowers on the way! We walked back in the dark sometimes but no feelings of being unsafe, such a friendly place.
Beach was great, really long so you could easily be the only people there or you could go to the slightly more busy end, one end had fixed beach chairs and parasols that you could rent, (200 mauritian rupees for half a day for a parasol and 2 chairs), the other end was a little more shady due to the trees.
The villa was already booked at the beginning of our holiday so we booked the duplex and moved to the villa when it was available. Duplex had a shared swimming pool which was more enclosed so warmer than the villa's and we had booked the villa because it was larger but actually the duplex had enough living space for the 5 of us, (our children are all under 8 years old so shared a room).
Airport transfer was offered, reasonably priced and arrived promptly.
