overall average
The tent was good, the lunch and dinner were good but the breakfast was poor. We were disappointed with the bed sheets that were not clean, and we were in bad luck with electricity issue it was switching off everyday at 6 am and we should walk all the way down to find someone to fix it, hope they are fixed now. The staff wre very friendly.

Fantastic Experience
We only stayed for a couple of nights (wishing now we had booked one or two more) and found otentic to be brilliant. Very different to the other types of hotels etc in Mauritius but way better in many areas. It's a small set up of around 12 tents which means there is a nice community type feel as pretty much everyone comes down to eat for dinner and some for lunch as well. The tents themselves were brilliant and felt very 'glamping style' with all amenities and a nice outside shower (nice hot water!). Breakfast was included and was very nice. Lunch and Dinner were paid but at only £10 per person were an absolute bargain. We stayed at a few other hotels during this trip, all of which charged well over tripple what otentic did and the food at the otentic was way way better. The main 'camp' area was nice especially at night and was good for hanging around. You can also take the kayaks out for free which was great fun and we also went on the boat trip to the Isle Aux Cerfs which again was free and was a lovely place to spend a couple of hours. There are a few games etc such as badminton and darts as well as board games etc so the camp was just as suitable for families as it was for couples etc. Overall and excellent and different place to stay which i could recommend highly enough.

5/5 Excellent
