Such wonderful personal care by the excellent staff who looked after everything from car transport to food, water and plans. The location is fantastic and the restaurant is very good as well - we dined out a few times and decided to eat at the hotel after that! The hotel itself is quaint but really needs refurbishment and maintenance to...

When visiting this place, do keep in mind that the town doesn't has a night-life. Even most of the restros and bars are shut by 10 or 10:30 in the evening! Went for a business trip and chose this boutique hotel. The reception desk is good, got an upgrade! The location is in the white town (away from beach). This...

Le Dupleix has retained it's old world charm and that's the beauty about the place. Stay here only if u like such old heritage properties as it doesn't have a lift and the flight of stairs can get exhausting. The menu is limited and one has to go over to their other property called Promenade for breakfast. The staff do...
