Fabulous attention from Megan and Nicholas, in fact whoever I spoke to was very helpful. This level of service is hard to find nowadays. Well done team you’re doing a fantastic job !
Stan Castle has been excellent and I will be booking again with him for our next trip very soon!
Easy to contact.
Once again, perfect service.
Seymourwas always there to help us and give us information and peace of mind
Thank you Claire and your team for helping us find an amazing holiday in Mauritius especially with all the last minute tweaks and changes we threw at you! DialAFlight made the experience smooth and stress free from beginning to end. Looking forward to our next adventure
Zoe was awesome. And anyone I have dealt with in the past has also been awesome. Always attentive and great at answering any questions. Unbeatable on price. I have already recommended to friends who are now your clients.
Nothing less than perfect from start to finish. As usual, Craig Paul ensured we had the best service. Would never use anyone else and most certainly recommend regularly.
Service has been impeccable - my go to person is Ryan who takes all the pressure off me.
My experiences with DialAFlight are excellent - reliable and always prompt to receive a quick response from Bill Gardner and other staff.
We had an amazing holiday. Everything was as promised and you took away so much of the stress in planning and organising. Will definitely be coming back to you in future
Easiest holiday ever booked. Timings, flights, transfers and accommodation brilliant!
Will definitely use DialAFlight again. Great service
Seamless booking organisation by Alex Gache and great rep (Sarah) in resort. Will highly recommend DialAFlight!
Really helpful staff especially Jordan. Accommodated a last minute change in dates smoothly and quickly. Great service
Thank you Ivor Savage for all you help! We had a fantastic holiday and everything ran smoothly.
Everything went to plan - flights, hotel and transfers and the local tour agent was excellent.
We are so happy with excellent service from Liam Rush. He is so helpful. We had a great holiday and definitely recommend to our friends.
Great service from start to finish. Very helpful, efficient and professional. All details regarding the trip were emailed in a very easy to read format and any requests and updates were dealt with promptly. I would definitely recommend them.
We have already recommended you to our friends and will use DialAFlight again. Brodie Letchfield was most helpful and an excellent asset to your company.
It was a wonderful holiday and everything went to plan!
Had a fantastic holiday and would definitely use again. Excellent service from Olivia Holt from the initial booking to the call before we started our holiday
Once again Sally excelled in helping us make the right choice. She is one in a million, thank you.
Specify exactly if there is shuttle to the airport and the baggage allowance
Aidan was amazing, as always! Helped out a lot especially as we had to cancel due to covid twice and transfer credit but we just got back from our honeymoon trip in Mauritius and it was the BEST holiday of our lives! We enjoyed it sooooo much and cannot wait to go back!
My only negative is the return transfer was booked way too late and we would have missed our flight had we had to wait in the normal check in. Fortunately one of the transfer team at the airport moved us to priority check in to push us through quicker. Everything else was perfect
Excellent holiday - resort was excellent but we had a 24 hour delay at Gatwick with British Arways and had to find last minute hotel accommodation. Not a good start.
John and his team were super helpful finding the right flights for us working with our budget.Timely updates and friendly reminders before travel so no issues and will gladly contact them again for our next family holiday
Our flight to Mauritius was great, however the return flight was really disappointing. We asked for the baby bassinet and we were informed that our baby was too big, although he went in it on the way. So it seems pointless having those seats, as you need to hold the baby throughout the flight. We also asked for the baby meal, which was included in the ticket, and told he needs to be 2 years old to get it.
Not every beach resort has a yoga instructress who once was Miss Paris. 'Hear the birds and feel the breeze on your skin,' says Isabelle Lamant.
It's 8.15am at the Constance Prince Maurice hotel on Mauritius's east coast, and a British trio is responding to Isabelle's Gallic-accented directions with varying success. One is curving flawlessly into position — while two of us exhibit the flexibility of flagpoles caught in a gale.
But what a gorgeous start to the day — the sponginess of the broad-bladed grass beneath our feet, the sun already hot.
Inspired by her love of graceful movement, her classes are based around her philosophy of balance and fitness. As well as being a former Miss Paris, she has a background in gymnastics and classical dance, which she has since combined with intensive yoga and pilates training. She explains: ‘My sessions allow guests to tone up, as well as learning how to relax tense muscles and weak joints.'
Each session is apparently designed to show how guests can integrate exercises into their daily routine for 'a more healthy, balanced lifestyle' when they return home - I will try to remember!
Isabelle has even designed a fun-filled program for younger guests, with an accent on posture. And just to stay competitive, Isabelle has also trained contestants for Miss France and Miss Tourism International in Malaysia.
Thirty yards away, amid banyan trees, palms, cinnamon and hibiscus, the hotel's Doric columns rise upwards, supporting a roof thatched with reeds of sugar cane. Another 50 yards and white sand is washed by the warm water of a lagoon, which opens onto the Indian Ocean. Twin terraces encase an infinity pool.
Although just an hour's drive from the airport, through fields of cane and villages speckled with stalls of vanilla and spices, the hotel's 60 acres, carved from a former sugar plantation, are entirely insulated from reality. By day two, it seems normal to be on the beach ordering Madagascar crab, followed by a chocolate fondant.
It's an appropriate reward, surely, for a dip during which a pick-handle barracuda has been identified, along with four-saddle grouper, threadfin butterfly fish, scissor tail sergeant and convict surgeon fish — the latter's silver flanks scored with black lines like the bars of a prison cell.
This sudden piscatorial expertise is the result of rifling through a Field Guide To Coastal Fishes Of Mauritius, produced by Fabrice, head-man in the marine hut, from where he co-ordinates water-skiing from my remedial wobble to 007 standard.
Along from the hut, the lagoon narrows and there's a roped walkway through a canopy of mangrove. As dusk falls, this is starrily lit, delineating the path towards a floating bar and restaurant — a Hollywood touch for guests emerging from their villas, many of which stand on stilts.
I can see only one discernible trophy wife, attached to a chap with a Jason Statham scowl - and a very un-Statham paunch. Perhaps he's here for the golf.
There are two 18-hole courses, and it's on the Links that Alexandre, the French pro, provides conclusive proof that, at the Prince Maurice, pretty well anything is possible.
He explains that visualisation is the key and, to demonstrate, he instructs me, a complete novice, to close my eyes — then swing. Miraculously, the ball stops a couple of yards from the pin.
Yet even that is eclipsed in the spa, where I submit my feet to Franck for a pedicure. He flicks on an instrument whose howl suggests impending amputation.
But no, it's a nail machine. An hour and a gallon of Sisley products later, and Franck announces: 'New feet.' Good enough, even, to be paraded at open-air yoga.
