Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

The Maritim Resort & Spa Mauritius lies in stunning tropical gardens along the Turtle Bay Marine Park. Many guests return again and again to enjoy its array of activities, many of which are included in your All Inclusive package, or to simply relax by the pool or on the beautiful beach. Discover the resort's wealth of dining options, from international buffet to 'feet in the sand'-style dining, Asian delicacies, and traditional cuisine. La Marée Beach Restaurant is the place for to enjoy seafood on the beach as the sun goes down. For a special treat, indulge in a meal at LaKaz Kreol, a Mauritian family-style restaurant seating just 10 people, or visit the hotel's Château Mon Désir, a colonial-style mansion overlooking the historic ruins of Balaclava and the Citron River. Visit the horses at the hotel's wonderful equestrian centre — and be sure to stop by the giant tortoise park on your way. There is also a superb spa at the hotel with lovely gardens, where you can take in the natural sounds of paradise as you relax in the tranquillity area behind the specially-made waterfall… heaven.

We stayed here for 13 nights and had an amazing time. We had suite 209 and it was lovely. It did suffer a bit with humidity, but they had a dehumidifier in the room. Our butlers were amazing, Nitin, Rajeev, Sanjeev and one other I can't remember his name sorry. They made our stay so special we wanted for nothing. They booked all our restaurant reservations (and equestrian), and made sure we had what we wanted to drink in the mini bar every night. They came to see us in the day on the beach to make sure all was good. They need not have worried about us on the beach as Jay had this covered. Jay looked after our every want on the beach, bringing us drinks, food and anything else we may have wanted. He was a legend. The spa was lovely too, we had several massages and they were all lovely. The staff in the spa are really lovely and professional. The equestrian centre was brilliant. I had 2 hacks around the grounds and down onto the beach, trotting and cantering. It was an amazing experience, the horses were well looked after and and behaved impeccably (Shout out to Jungle Skyline). Dai'oi (probably spelt wrong) was my riding guide and he put me at ease straight away. He chatted to me all the time and made sure I was comfortable and felt safe. The food at the hotel was absolutely lovely. The main buffet was always a good selection. The beach restaurant Le Maree was lovely and the location is beautiful. The BBQ restaurant was a favourite as my husband loves BBQ meat and he did not have to wear shorts in this one! The Asian restaurant was not a favourite of ours as the service was slow and the food was cold. The only 2 things that would have made this stay better and would have earned a 5 star review was the bar at night around the pool. The service was really slow and the entertainment was really poor. The only other thing that would have made it better and this is something that the hotel had no control over was the sea. The visibility was really poor as there is an inlet from a river that brings the water into the sea from the mountains and this obviously make the sea look murky. If you swim further out the sea was clearer. The snorkelling trip runs twice a day from the jetty and it is brilliant. The reef is only 5 minutes boat ride and it is free. All in all though a fab time and we would definitely return to Mauritius. Thanks Jay, Sanjeev, Nitin, Rajeev and our other butler. All the staff in the restaurants especially the BBQ restaurant. xxxx Read less

The Spa was an amazing experience. Savita and Pravesh from the spa reception were really helpful and Hema and Ravi gave us a really good massage. Will definitely go again - just if you want to enjoy the most of it, i would recommend getting there early at 08.30. (More privacy before everyone else gets in)

We had a 10 day family holiday here in early April. From the very beginning we were impressed but there were so many really nice touches as the stay went on that it just got better and better. Of particular mention was the food. It really was all of very good quality, even in the buffet. We were on AI (All inclusive), and we never wished that we'd upgraded to PAI. There was plenty of choice and lively food on AI. On a few occasions we paid a liitle extra for a course or 2 but AI is quite adequate. The best people (out of a very strong field!!) were the waterski team.Videsh, Arvin, Alex, and Rajeev were just amazing. I've never seen a group of people give such professional, patient, cheeerful and dedicated service. The management need to single them out as great ambassadors for the hotel. As for the few rather odd complaining reveiws on trip advisor - ignore them!! - they must have been staying at a different hotel. Well done all of you - the management runs a very tight ship here!

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of March 2019. We had been here 5 years previous and had forgotten just how relaxing and peaceful it was. We spent every day bar 1 on the beach and just chilled out every day. There are loads of activities to do, but we just did not move from our sunbeds (exept to cool in the sea or amble to the bar).

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of March 2019. We had been here 5 years previous and had forgotten just how relaxing and peaceful it was. We spent every day bar 1 on the beach and just chilled out every day. There are loads of activities to do, but we just did not move from our sunbeds (exept to cool in the sea or amble to the bar). We stayed in a prestige room (428) on all inclusive basis. Our room was kept clean and tidy twice a day and fresh towels whenever required. Breakfast every day in La Maree was excellent, lunch every day here as well had plenty of choice with a different menu each day. Dinner was taken 3 times in the main buffet restuarant and had excellent choices of dishes each time. We had dinner 4 times in La Maree which again was fantastic food. Our other dinner was in the Asian Fusion restaurant and this was the only grumble we had. Very limited choice and poor service, you can only choose 1 starter, main course, we would have preferred a few different dishes to share, which in most Asian places is what you get. Dessert was not offered after at least a 25 minute wait, so just up and left, when we got to the exit we were asked about dessert, bit late then so we just signed the zero zero bill and left. This was the only issue we had and then only minor. The all inclusive package is really simple to understand as all menus have 3 columns next to each item. All drinks on the A/I package were fine and in plentiful supply. We did spend most of our time at the beach bar most evenings as this is right next to La Maree. The staff in all areas were always helpful and this really makes a difference. Special mention to a few would be Rakesh, Ashweree and Mithun (La Maree), Varun amd Neetim (Beach bar) and Kevish who kept us in rum punch, mojito's, beer and wine sprinters all day on the beach. The hotel is apparently closing next year for a big refit but none of the staff seemed to know when and for how long, but it was going to happen. All in all we had a marvelous holiday at the Maritim and would reccomend it as an excellent choice in Mauritius. Read less
