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 delicious Mediterranean dishes 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, or experience the new brasserie style restaurant set inside historical ruins. 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.

Amazing hotel. Boutique feel with all the amenities of a resort hotel and more. Check in was efficient and sensitive to how tired we were. Made every effort to get us into our room quickly. Room was lovely. Deluxe - 472. Sea view. And a view over garden. Kept spotlessly clean. Comfy beds. Quiet and peaceful. Pool is lovely. Plenty of loungers no matter what time you came down. The beach and sea were simply stunning. White sands, turquoise still water. Great beach service. The staff everywhere were charming and friendly- without exception. Took the trouble to know our names and always greeted us. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was tasty with plenty of choices. Cocktails were lovely and plenty of booze in them. Animals on the resort were so well cared for. Loved the little cat who hung about the bar and restaurant. I can’t say enough about this wonderful hotel and great staff. Thank you Maritim and your fantastic staff for a fabulous holiday. We were so sad to leave and hope to be back. Read less

We returned from a 7 night stay at the Maritim on the 28th May 2022 and we had a great time!We booked the deluxe plus sea facing room on the all inclusive package.We were upgraded to eat breakfast at La Maree and that was excellent especially the beautiful beach setting.We actually ate our evening meal at La Maree on 3 occasions and each time the food and Service was excellent.I would like to commend the following staff at La Maree Paulo,Mitton,Neetin.We also used our all inclusive credit at Anno 1743 and Chateau mon Desir.Once again excellent food and great service.Here, I would like to commend Chef Nannen who gave me a 2nd plate of petit fours as I liked them so much! and the waiting on staff Kunal,Sachin and Govind. The Quarter deck Bar Manager Deven was also excellent, after waiting for a food order on our 1st afternoon he made sure that we didn't experience any further issues and was always very friendly and eager to help. The only dining experience that I would not recommend was the "Banyan", the food was cold, bland and expensive and the service was abysmal! On our arrival we had a major issue with the hot water supply in our room namely no hot water.Although we were assured the problem had been rectified on Day 1, it hadn't and we experienced the same issue on Day 2...it appeared that this issue was not restricted to our room and Jerry the Duty Manager said that it was an electrical issue that would be rectified that evening.Prior to dinner that evening the hotel found me another room to shower in, which was not the most convenient, but fortunately by the morning of Day 3 hot water was back and we had no further issues for the rest of our stay. As you can imagine this was not how I expected the holiday to start but thanks to the staff we did get the issue rectified and needless to say it didn't dampen our enjoyment. I would also like to commend the efficient checking in process done by Kavita who also arranged all our dining options for the week.Rati from the front office received me at reception on numerous occasions with a smile on her face and Manoj one of the Duty Managers who resolved our queries very efficiently. Although the location of this resort is idyllic, it is the staff that make it...other staff I must mention are the following: Vimla who received us for Breakfast on a couple of mornings in the Buffet, Imran at Anno and the 2 buggy drivers Sanjeev and Krishna.Thank you all for making our stay so enjoyable and we do hope to return again soon.

Registration and check in took 45 mins. Had a problem in the room at around 18.45 hrs. Water flooding from the toilet and spreading in the corrridor. It took 1 hr for the hotel staff to intervene. After a very hostile discussion with one person named Sherina, she just bluntly told us that the best solution is to vacate the hotel and it was nearly 21.00 hrs ! She availed herself of this prerogative as we were local Mauritians ! Imagine yourself if it was foreign nationals being expelled from the hotel at night.l. When borders were closed local people were KIng, Taxpayers money were injected in the hotel's coffin just to keep the hotel alive. Now they no longer need the same taxpayer as foreigners are coming back. What a shame to this hotel. I do not recommend this hotel to our dear countrymen. Read less

Absolutely horrified that this hotel is a 5 star!! Absolutely appalled by the service, very amateurish!

Absolutely horrified that this hotel is a 5 star!! Absolutely appalled by the service, very amateurish! It didn't start well to begin with, it took over 45 mins to check-in-, the food was not of great variety, the pasta chef seems unaware of simple terms like penne, arabiatta- the food was good in so much butter, just looking it at it, made me not want to eat it- the same for breakfast- the egg was literally swimming in oil! The kids buffet, was the most basic buffet I have ever seen! Some beach chairs are reserved for suites, and rightly so, but for the guy to personally move my stuffs(and let me keep the price of my Bottega sunglasses off!!!!) without asking me, is crazy, do note we were the only one at the beach, all he could do is ask. Am for sure never going again, but if you are a tourists, do go, you will be treated well, its us Mauritians that pay for our stay that get treated like this! NEVER GOING AGAIN! Read less
