We booked at the last minute during high season and were lucky that our taxi driver was able to find any available guesthouse in Flic en Flac. The price was high for Mauritius but Escale Vacances is in a coveted spot, and our last minute booking left us with little options.
Upon arrival, I was unimpressed with the concrete building and unattended pool and grounds, but the apartment was more than adequate with a fully stocked kitchen, two bathrooms (one on each level) and two verandas.
The best thing about it is the location. Set right across from the beach, it is within walking distance to all amenities including restaurants, shopping, supermarket, bus stop and night life. Even though it is located right in the middle of the Flac en Flac town, it is surprisingly quiet at night.
Even though I had a negative first impression, I ended up really enjoying my stay here and appreciating the coziness of the apartment. It isn't for everyone but if you are looking for a simple guesthouse in the best area, this is the place.More
