We spent 1 week here with our 3 young children, in between 1 week at each of the other Lux hotels in Mauritius, Le Morne and Belle Mare. This was our favorite week, and the hotel that the kids want to go back to. The biggest reason for that was the kids club, and the staff that works there. Even though the other hotels have bigger and better kids clubs when it comes to the actual space and playground area, the staff at Grand Gaube seem to actually enjoy hanging out with the kids. So I would like to say a big thank you to Rebecca and Felicia especially.

Since we last visited Lux Grand Gaube the hotel has gone through a transformation, which we really liked. The rooms are fantastic, and the staff are as friednly and helpful as ever. The food was great, we especially liked the pasta station and the Indian food. The burger place towards the adults area was very good too.
The beach is still pretty even if the water isn't clear and it's very relaxing to have the beach chairs just by the water with some space inbetween. The property never feels crowded, and the pool area is nice.

The only downside that I have to point out is the cockroaches. Now, I know this is the tropics and so on, but there were a couple of days when many roaches, dead and alive, was just by the edge of the restaurant/stage area and in the lobby area. While I never saw any in the actual food areas of the reatuarant, it would at least have been nice if they had been cleaned up because they aren't nice to look at. At all. This couple with the fact that our terrace had a very large hole at the bottom of the balcony doors was not reassuring, and that took about 2 or 3 days before they managed to fix it after we notified them.
Anyway, that was my one complaint, but I never saw even a hint of a cockroach on the other two Lux properties so obviously it can be dealt with... which leads me to another, minor complaint. The cleaning could be more thorough. Lux Le Morne has quite dated rooms but it was always kept spotless, while on most nights in Lux Grand Gaube, the same cobwebs were never touched and a bit dusty on the floor. I have to mention it, but don't get me wrong, it was still a very nice room!!

We’ve stayed at the sister hotel Merville Beach, But this hotel has the same staff as MB. Therefore we would like to express our gratitude with Lux Hotel Grand Gaube for the kindness of their employees. Especially Khalida (towel service) and Will (watersport service) were so kind to us, and deserve a big compliment for their hospitality.

We stayed here for the second week of our honeymoon having stayed at the lux belle mare for the first week. We had an amazing week and felt the complex was even bigger and better than the belle mare. We loved the adults only area as it was so quiet and we were taken care of so well by Kumar and Mevin, who even cleaned our sun glasses, moved our beds and tucked out towels in! We were so spoilt by them! Sun at the spa was lovely and we had an amazing couples massage there. Andrew was very good and served us drinks most nights- we feel these staff were by far the best there and worked Very hard. The food was excellent a really good range in the buffet as well as restaurants especially Bodrum Blue. We never felt the need to use Inti as we were all inclusive and Inti isn’t so never felt we ran out if options. The crab burger at the banyan beach was amazing. They really made us feel special and there was decorations on our bed and complementary fizz. We can hardly fault our stay although in comparison to Belle Mare a lot of staff were slower and we often had to repeat the same request a few times to get what we needed. We were also told the mini bar was not included in all inclusive but it was- which we had hesitated on using because of this. There was also a problem with the air con but it was soon sorted. On the whole it was amazing but just a few niggles which was mainly waiting for things from staff (not the ones mentioned)- because we were comparing with another lux hotel the belle mare did appear to have better service. But on the whole a really great trip.

Everything was great , great quality rooms and Cafe lux was a great place to spend a relaxing moment.

The staff there was super kind and accommodating, especially Nuha and Karuna who were kind enough to help me with custom requests.

Would definitely recommend!
