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.

My partner and I stayed here for a wedding which actually was at another hotel. We stayed all inclusive. So everything was free including the drinks (where applicable). The staff were very friendly and rooms were spacious and clean. We had a room with a jacuzzi which was nice to relaxing in with a bottle of bubbly. The beach wasn’t too busy or noisy which was perfect to relax and get a tan. On the beach they have local people selling souvenirs to excursions. They aren’t pushy in selling you anything and all have to be licensed to work there. We were approached by a young local gentle called Brette Olvier who sold us an excursion via speed boat. He was a lovely, honest and polite gentlemen. We booked and visited the island Ile Aux cerf, the waterfalls and stopped off at another beach for lunch. Absolutely delicious food! If your ever looking to book a guide please look out for him on the beach at the Maritim Resort. Highly recommend using him to book any boat trips etc. Overall I would visit and stay at this hotel again. Food was good, rooms were clean, staff were friendly and beach was quiet and peaceful.

Our room was large with a balcony and a lovely bathroom. Meals in the buffet, beach restaurant and the a la carte restaurants were usually good. The waiting staff were always busy but were often stretched which was not their fault. We had a very good meal in the Mauritian restaurant made even more pleasant by Ashi who was our waitress. The meal at the Chateau was excellent, particularly as the food by Chef Nallan was as good as we expect in London restaurants. We struggled with the flies on the beach and in the buffet restaurant, which was not the same for friends who stayed two hotels away, so this does need to be addressed. We were aware that the hotel was in need of renovation which we took into account for the price we paid. Read less

To be honest, the closer we got to our departure date, the more apprehensive I became about this hotel following some truly dreadful reviews on TripAdvisor. In the end, our holiday turned around 180 degrees, helped by some beautiful weather on our last couple of days. The Maritim itself is set in lovely grounds with plentiful facilities including a tranquil spa complex, although we only used the gym (just the one treadmill for the entire hotel) and went to yoga (not good and mostly consisted of supine stretching). What's not good is the food in the main restaurant, which was hit and miss -- anything themed such as the Indian or African nights were good and even delicious -- but the "international buffet" was a mishmash and mostly tasteless. And I've had better Chinese food from a chip shop in Solihull than in the Asian-themed Banyan, which was dreadful. However, the Maree beach restaurant is lovely and the staff - especially Yevin - could not be nicer or more accomodating. And the housekeeping staff -- especially Veena -- were so gracious. What really lets the Maritim down though is the lack of communication from the management. You have to find out everything for yourself. And the front of house reception staff can come across as unhelpful. Yes, we were allowed to keep our room on the day we checked out, but only because the entire hotel was closing for a complete refurb until December. So, a real mixed bag -- beautiful setting, lovely gardens and great on-the-ground staff but a tired hotel with elusive management. Read less

I really find it hard to believe what some people write about the Maritim with their negative reviews as when my wife and I stayed in November/December we couldn’t praise it enough.

I really find it hard to believe what some people write about the Maritim with their negative reviews as when my wife and I stayed in November/December we couldn’t praise it enough. The hotel is due for refurbishment but even so it was still a wonderful colonial style building which was a delight to stay at. We found the staff very friendly, helpful and always professional and they always had a smile on their faces! Special mentions must go to Ishwaree who took care of my gluten free lunch everyday at La Maree, such a nice helpful lady, she certainly made my life easier for a week. Others include Yashveer, Rakesh, Yevin, Kevish and last but not least Sattia (Babwa) who was an absolute joy behind the beach bar. Our room was lovely with great views looking out onto the bay, it was always clean, had a great big comfy bed and had an adequate supply of drinks and snacks in the mini bar. Although we couldn’t get in all the restaurants during our stay due to being booked the ones we did try were excellent. Would I recommend this hotel to people? Of course, we can’t wait for it to reopen after refurbishment and will be booking again. Thanks to everyone at The Maritim for making our holiday so wonderful. Read less
