Where to begin so much to say…. Simply Amazing!
A 5 Star hotel with hidden gems within the hotel facilities and super star team members.
A fantastic resort under the management of Samuel Pellegrini. The hotel is a vast piece of property located on the east coast of the island of Mauritius surrounded by two beautiful championship golf courses. When arriving at the hotel covid-19 protocols are visible, Social Distancing, Sanitizer on every table. Clear guidelines in place by the hotel thus making it a safe environment.
The Bar - Entertainers led by Pascal and his prodigies – Rahul, Rishi, Fabien, Prakash and so many more to name. The pleasure of going to the bar for an aperitif and discussing with the team what they will create for you this evening. Those lads are talented and showcases it with every cocktail they create and make as per your preferences. Creativity has no limit there.
Spa & Recreation led by the fantastic Manager- Rajiv. Priscilla at the spa reception and Anisha who performed a relaxation massage, just made me feel even more on holiday. Jose a true brand ambassador to Constance- everyday at 7.30 am sharp he was present for my usual morning gym session. He motivates you and custom builds a program based on your aptitudes and what you are looking to achieve. He is also an excellent player of table tennis and Bocci Balls. Travelling alone is always challenging but he knew how to keep me entertained and therefore never felt I was alone in this huge hotel.
The food and beverage team led by Abel and Percy. Are both ardent of their passion and that is seen in their respective teams. Morning, Afternoon, Dinner all present to ensure that you are having a true and memorable dining experience within the hotel.
The Main Dining restaurant- La Citronnelle a revamped buffet with chefs preparing a la minute dishes and serving with a big smile. Indigo The best restaurant for an easy lunch dining. Navin, Jeremie was all so attentive. Beautiful setting by the beach front and the heated pool. Perfect spot for a nice and Tranquille lunch. Team members Nisha, Pallavee, Sweetie, Seetohul, Lekraj, Yuvan, Veenoben, Christelle, Elizamelle, Brenda, Arvita, Pamela all so attentive and always there to welcome you and serve you with a big smile.
La Spiaggia – Personal Best!! It was amazing the first time that I had to return! The team led by Ben, Vinaye, Vic, Koushal Sommelier and the amazing Chef- Kevin who presented me with dishes that really took the whole dining experience to another level. He went above and beyond to really create some off menu dishes based from local products that were plated within the gastronomic standards. Koushal also paired those dishes with some amazing wine recommendations. Overall, a 10/10 experience on both evenings.
Front Office; Praveen Front Office Manager who I met upon arrival and departure has a great team – Manish, Elizabeth, laurna, Annick, Vimi, Kamal, Thierry, Sanjana, Dana, Urvesh, Praveijz, Suren, Ashock, Gilbert, Kailash, Darmen, Rajiv. Travelling alone is always tricky but since day one I felt at ease and everyone was so welcoming and caring. Attention to small details is what makes it a five star hotel.
I do feel like they mention on their brand value- Come as a guest and leave as a friend! Till I’m back on the beautiful island of Mauritius.
A dream in the Indian Ocean

While reading the review please keep in mind that we stayed in the resort in September 2021. Thus this was a resort-only vacation and in addition the hotel operated at only 10-20% of guest capacity.
After visiting Réunion for hiking, we spent 10 great days in the Constance Belle Mare Plage where we made new friends, learned a new sport, enjoyed great food and most of all: enjoyed outstanding service.
The Room: We had a junior suite with sea view (all rooms have) at the 1st floor. The suite is spacious and has a nice bathroom plus a walk-in closet which we found very practical for a longer stay. The interieur of the suite was nice but had already some wear and tear.
The Beach: Constance Belle Mare Plage has a long beautiful beach. Turquoise water, light sand many palms make a great view and give you the paradise feeling. However, there are some rocks along the beach where you probably do not want to walk over when you going into the water. The service is great here as very attentive waiters will bring drinks and food directly to your beach chair. Really outstanding was the fact that they prepared our sunbed every morning very nicely with towels.
The Restaurants: La Citronnelle is not a classical buffet restaurant as cooks will prepare your dishes on your plate so that they look very nicely. Range and quality of food was very good and the service - again - was amazing.
Two days we went to The Deer Hunter for breakfast and dinner which was included in half-board. You have a great view on the golf course and the continental breakfast was very good and more than enough. The real highlight, however, is the dinner which is a four-course meal with either fish or meat as main course. At both of our dinners the taste and the quality of the food was amazing, a level above La Citronnelle I would say.
We also had one dinner at La Spiaggia where we enjoyed an aperitif with a very nice view on the ocean. With half-board you get a credit which covers ca. 70% of the costs for the main course. The menu there is a la carte and the dishes we had were all very nicely prepared. We had a wagyu beef and a venison fillet which tasted amazing with great texture. All in all, La Spiaggia felt even slightly more premium than The Deer Hunter.
The Recreational Facilities: We had a couple massage and were both positively surprised. The foot scrub and the full-body massage were way better than what we are used to get in Germany. Our bodies felt noticeably more relaxed afterwards. The gym was well-equipped and due to Covid, we had to book a slot in advance (plenty of slots available) and had the gym completely for ourselves.
We also spontaneously decided to start playing tennis and had two hours with a tennis coach which helped us a lot to learn the basics.
Constance is actually most famous for its two golf courses The Links and The Legend. We are not playing golf but had a tour over The Legend and it certainly felt like if you want to play golf on Mauritius this is the resort you want to stay.
Bottom line: We had an extraordinary stay at Constance Belle Mare Plage. What clearly stand out to us was the service. It is amazing how friendly we became with some of the staff in just 9 days. Thus we want to name our top 5 for truly outstanding service:
- Rakesh (Beach)
- Assish (The Deer Hunter)
- Ramila (La Citronnelle)
- Vincent Amurat (Management)
- Vinaye (La Spiaggia)
Thanks again to the whole team for making our stay so special!

We had our bubble quarantine at Belle Mare Plage. It was just awesome!
The room was spacious and clean, but a bit outdated.
Everybody was so attentive and lovely. Although the hotel was nearly empty, they cooked the best food ever, very tasty and delicious in all restaurants. Special needs were taken serious and in no time. Everybody knew about and we did not have to explain it every day. Just awesome!
We played golf every day, world class golf, with only a few other people.
We had massages, which were good.
We certainly will be back!
Thanks to all the stuff and Management! What a wonderful place to relax and play golf.
Had a nice time quarantine

I spent 14 night in the hotel very nice welcoming with the management team. Good explanation from the guest relation team and all the protocol of covid 19 were well explained. I had a great lunch in my room. My second day i start my breakfast at the citronelle restaurant, lots of varieties. I have met the guy Kailash, very caring person and always available when in need for any information about restaurants, golf and spa. I recomend Kailash for guest coming in this resort. Also Praveen was very helpful. Maybe see you in 2025.
All round excellence

Excellent 10 days in this hotel. Beautiful suite. Immaculate common areas complimented by the most courteous and friendly staff. Our room maid Ashwina was exceptional. Food, though limited in these pandemic times, was excellent in all the restaurants. A real holiday treat......and 2 world class golf courses to boot!
