The general layout and the ideas used seem very nice but now are rather run down. It has a small railway but it was not running well that day. Hot during the day so take water. The restaurants are ok for food but look dted.

Been to DLP many times and basically it is either lunch or going to the casino. It does not seem to have other activities despite publicity on sugar mills, horse riding etc....

There is nothing great about this place. It is out of the way from Port Louis. Mostly a tourist will need to hire a taxi and taxi comes very expensive in Mauritius. It is better to chose another place to visit.

The best place with several varieties of cosmopolitan restaurants to try! The fu xiao Chinese restaurant remains my favourite one as the Chinese food there is wonderful! I also love the Indian restaurant there, held by my Anglican friend's sister. Especially the decor and the music...

With high hopes as being the best casino there were only few tables mostly of roulette and black jack. Only one table of Stud Poker . Very quiet no music no bling it was very very boring experience ( A better one would be in Grand Baie with two an entire floor for Poker and bowling joint attached :)

It is in the suburb of Port Louis. The restaurant are OK. Thher is only one way to go and if there is an exhibition at SVICC you must have lots of patience to drive inch by inch inside the domaine. Preferably go to visit on week days with kids.

We used the Domaine Les Paillies as our training venue and its was simply brilliant, from the food to the excellent coffee, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. The grounds are magnificent, but its probably only a half day visit for the tourist

We arrived, drove around it and ended up phoning to make sure they were open - they were, but there was no sign of life. Once we found the office, they explained that there are no tours, the mill is closed, all but one restaurant was closed... But, the train and horse carriage rides were available and that's why we...

Nice to stroll around in the beautiful gardens. Very interesting to see how they squeezed sugarcanes i the 18:th century. You can have a guided tour for 200 Roupee and it also includes a horseride along the estate. The rum destillery is nowdays only a museum. With a better maintenace the estate would "live up to its glorious days". There... More
