We stayed at the guest house for five nights. The rooms were exactly as shown on the website's images and very clean. You can choose from a wide breakfast selection. The pool area is okay for a "cool down" and a lazy afternoon and if you want to swim and enjoy a day in the water the beautiful Mont Choisy...

The restaurant is quite good but often empty. But the guesthouse is going down. Rooms should be refurbished, the common areas are gone because they expanded the restaurant, the swimming pool is small and full on the sun. Just commercial, no cozy feeling. Not a guesthouse, just a bunch of second class rooms, mostly empty. You must pay cash in...

Very friendly staffs, spacious, clean and cozy room. Perfect place for relaxing. The pool is quite small in size however was clean. You should definitely try Esprit Libre for a weekend. Will surely book another stay at Esprit Libre.

The room was spacious. A little worn out but it is fine.. Good location - walkable distance to a few corner shops, Mon Choisy beach (with food trucks) supermarket. The front desk staff was friendly but VERY hard sell and pushy. We had dinner there on the first night - the mauritian tapas was really good.. But the mains were...

During our 4 day stay at CannonierPointe we ate out at the Esprit Libre restaurant 3 nights. The food was delicious and the service extraordinary. All at a reasonable price too. The two girls, Prischa and Nayana, that served us are very nice and an asset to the restaurant.

Our stay at Esprit Libre was wonderful. The place is cosy, the manager is very friendly and makes you feel at home. The decor is marvellous and the breakfast was just wow. Definitely a place to be. The small hic we faced was the high prices of its dinner and drinks forcing us to go to nearby restaurants for better...

Esprit-Libre (I couldn't for the life of me say the name without completely messing it up my entire stay in Mauritius! :-) ) was a great great find! I had gone through a horrible experience my first 2 days in Mauritius, but I felt exactly what the name--free spirit--suggests within minutes of arriving at EL. The hotel arranged my transport...

What a lovely way to spend our last night in Mauritius!!! The food was absolutely delicious and cooked beautifully with love! The waitress was a poppet and so friendly and helpful. Despite being the only family among couples we felt welcome and quickly relaxed into the wonderfully chilled ambience. Can't recommended this wonderful place enough!!

We came to have breakfast today and quality of food was very good as well as presentation. Sad that breakfast didn't come with fresh fruit juice and instead was concentrated juice. What let this place down was the waiter who was not very welcome from the beginning which surprised us as people from this island are very friendly and always...

Small hotel with nice personell who went out of their way to make us comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious, and the prices reasonable compared to the west side of the island. Location was ok, but not that close to the beach. Will come again to dive nearby.
