Our kids loved the pool – they would have spent all day, every day in it. Sadly (for them) we took them to the beautiful Botanical Gardens (use a guide), to the Crocodile/Tortoise park in the South (worth the trip) and on a few trips to both the East and West coasts (not so worthwhile - the best beaches and the best snorkelling were all in the North).
We did an Island trip to Bernache and another trip when we paid a local boat owner just to take us to the reef where we snorkelled (he took us to a place where there’s a gap in the reef, so we swam through that and snorkelled on the outside of the reef too).
We really liked the beach at Mon(t) Choisi, had fun at Nandos at the big shopping centre just outside Grand Baie, and were really impressed with the food, the décor and the people at the little restaurant just across the road from the house.
But mainly we stayed in the house (hide and seek heaven). Aurelie and Warren were very kind to us and were good hosts.
