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.

Want to start by saying....please do not listen to any negative reviews or let them put you off booking this all round amazing resort! This was our 2nd visit (1st visit 2013) and it was still as breathtaking as the 1st. Before we went the 2nd time I myself was apprehensive regarding some negative reviews and contacted the resort who were so helpful and reassuring. On arrival all my apprehension was immediately put to rest as it was just as amazing as I remember. All I can say is these people that leave bad reviews saying....rats running around, grounds very tired, rooms tired, staff slow and rude and complaints about the food must of stayed at a different hotel to me!! The staff were amazing from start to finish in all areas and nothing was too much trouble, our room was clean, modern and spacious (3 adults sharing) with a separate walk in wardrobe, the grounds are kept so beautiful are to die for, the facilities are all you need and more especially the water sports like water skiing, glass bottom boats, snorkelling trips provided as part of your All Inclusive. The food was excellent in all restaurants (ok it gets a bit samie towards the end but that’s the same for all, All Inclusive resorts after a while in my opinion!) also there is some supplements on the menu if you choose but there was still plenty of choice if you don’t want to pay a supplement! While we was there we had 2, 20th birthday celebrations and the staff on the beach restaurant, La Maree couldn’t of been more cheerful and helpful in wanting to make their day special for them by having sparking wine waiting at breakfast, and the table decorated with flowers and a cake at dinner. Yes I agree that there needs to be more varied entertainment in the evenings, as it can get very quiet. Also scrap the supplements to make it easier all round and bring in line with other All Inclusive resorts. I highly recommend The Maritim and will definitely be returning to paradise and checking out their refurbishment Thank you to the management and staff, keep up the amazing service! Read less

The hotel is on a beautiful, huge site, with a lovely beach, very good snorkelling and a good range of water activities. The room we had was lovely, though there are strong rumours of a major refurb next year, so check that out if planning to book. The staff simply cannot do enough for you. Food in all the restaurants was very good, scrupulously clean and with a good variety. The only themed restaurant we didn’t like much was the posh Chateau Mon Desir, which we found lacking in atmosphere, VERY pricey and somewhat pretentious. Also, the Beach BBQ is not really on the beach! Excellent was Lakaz Kreol serving a set menu to only 10 guests seated at a round table. We are British and dined with 8 lovely Germans who made it a memorable evening. All restaurants must be booked except the Belle Vue, which is the main eating place. One warning about the Maritim. There are degrees of guest – B&B, All Incl and Premium. If you can possibly stretch to it, go for Premium as there are so many things not available to other guests, that the Hotel’s credentials as All Inclusive are questionable. We were there for a special occasion and absolutely loved it. Read less

My wife and I stayed here for 11 nights in July and loved every minute of it! We ate in all the restaurants and weren't disappointed. The Chateau was expensive but worth every penny with top class service and cuisine. We especially loved having breakfast and lunch most days at La Maree on the beach with it's amazing views across the ocean and a varied menu that had something for everyone. The range of water sports were excellent and I even rode a horse for the first time in 30 years which I thoroughly enjoyed. If I had one criticism it would be that the wifi was very poor and ordinarily it wouldn't be a problem, as I go on holiday for a break, but in this case I had to do some work and it wasn't great. Overall though we can't recommend it enough and I would suggest booking a Prestige room so you get extra space and breakfast at La Maree on the beach instead of the buffet. Read less

Stayed here for a week in April. Changed rooms a few times due to ants cockroaches and general cleanliness. Hotel grounds are tired and in need of updating. Bar service is very slow especially around the pool. Limited options for food and all inclusive is not all inclusive as we know it with most options requiring an additional supplement. Food isn’t great. Average. Pool chairs are tired. If you pay extra for a suite you get to sit on a nicer part of the beach! The bbq was awful. Rats running around. Lack of cleanliness. A number of other South African families were complaining for the same issues. Some positives include Banyan restaurant which made special food due to dietary requirements and chef Kenny was fabulous. As were waiter/waitress Rambo and Charlene. Yuvrin was very nice in the marine for breakie. Dev and Bob at the quarter deck bar made some special drinks and provided a happy friendly service. Sahal in the bar and Shiv provided great service and Ganesha made the best pornstar martini. The hotel will be undergoing a revamp later this year so hopefully this will improve the facilities and quality of stay. I wouldn’t go back! Read less

After reading some reviews before we went, I had slight worries as to how the hotel would be. Well, I have to say that it exceeded my expectations! Although the food wasn’t always the best (Le Banyan was most disappointing, and a couple of the dinners at Belle Vue, selection wasn’t great) these were insignificant when you compare the positives. The amount of activities on offer was beyond any all inclusive resort I’d been to. Staff in all areas were polite and friendly. My son who was on his first holiday without his sister for company, made lots of friends with both visitors and staff! The draw to Maritim for us was the golf course - we knew we wanted to be in the North as it was their winter. Admittedly it’s not the best course, but we played 6 times during our stay (if you intend on playing, bring a half set of clubs - hiring more than once will turn costly) and it only takes an hour and a half to go round, leaving the rest of day doing other activities. Lovely touches, Indian night was a particular highlight, the food and the performance afterwards. Didn’t have a spa treatment (did think spa prices were a bit on the high side) but did use the spa facilities which were lovely. Thank You Maritim - I normally don’t say I would return to a place again as I feel there are so many places in the world to visit but I’d definitely like to return here! Read less
