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.

An amazing hotel with fabulous staff. From the incredible picture view in reception to the variety in restaurants and staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. A great range of facilities on the beach and watersports and a good pool area around the bar and an amazing view from the infinity pool. All staff were attentive and aware and approached in a friendly and welcoming manner. Special mention to the awesome Sandrine, Ishwaree at La Maree beach restaurant, Bares in the Quarterdeck bar, Vilma at the breakfast and lunch restaurant, Mithun in the beach bar, Charline in the Bayan oriental restaurant and lots of others too many to mention. I was so delighted to try scuba diving and all the team there that supervised and helped on this were fab. A super venue and I can’t recommend it enough. Thank you for making our holiday such an unbelievable experience. Read less

The hotel is in a remote location and it is very calm. I went there for 2 nights and the buffet was good with a nice variety. It has a long beach to stroll and a large pool. It is not accessible by bus, you'll need to rent a car or use taxi.

My wife and I came here for a two week honeymoon last year. We chose a prestige room and the premium all inclusive food package. There were lot of good points about the hotel. The Le Banyan and La Maree restaurants were very nice, the Lakaz Kreol dining experience was a great touch and the Chateau restaurant was fantastic. The Quarterdeck bar was good and a nice place to watch the sunset. We liked our colonial style room and the pool and beach areas were OK. However the food in the main buffet restaurant could have been be better, and some of the staff could do to be a bit more professional and polished. It would be nice if there were some kind of pass/wristband for all inclusive as well, so as not to have to sign receipts after every meal and I think bedrooms should be ready on arrival after a long trip. Overall we enjoyed our stay though. Read less

Ok the bad, we had upgraded both the room and AI inclusive package to a privilege room and the top AI package, to be kind the first room we were allocated was a disgrace there was mould and damaged plaster evident within the room, it took till the following day to resolve this and I do have to tell you all privilege rooms are not equal. With regard to the all inclusive I do question if the extra payment is worth it for what you get and continually being questioned by staff when you order an item from the premium list. After a meeting with management and virgin some of the issues were resolved, to a point and we were informed that the hotel was to undergo a major refurb in 2020. That said the hotel did attempt to make good on the issues and if you are allocated a colonial prestige room the are dated but rather nice. The wine list is interesting in as much that at least one of the premium wines retails in E Leclerc in France for about €3 that doesn’t make it a bad glass of wine but it certainly doesn’t make it “premium” Now the good.... The food, when you upgrade to prestige it gives you a range of restaurants to go to, we booked ahead and I have nothing but praise for all of them you will not starve and the food was a highlight la Maree for breakfast at the beach and evening meal excellent! The kaz creol excellent, la banyan excellent, the barbecue excellent and the the buffet, hey it’s a buffet but not the worst. The hotel also has a fine dining restaurant le chateau mon desire again excellent. During our stay we celebrated our wedding anniversary and we dined at the pavilion on the beach I can only describe this a magical and cannot praise this highly enough. The campus is large and well kept and includes several guest experiences such a horse riding I would advise trying everything including the sea adventures we found thing easy to organise and even easier to enjoy. Now as part of a compensation for the early issues the hotel booked us on to the suite beach for the duration of our stay, this gave us a reserved area sun loungers and a beach Butler and what a guy his name is Jay and nothing is too much trouble, he is a gentleman and a fantastic advert for this hotel, you genuinely feel he is a friend not a butler, mainly due to the mans inherent dignity and his total work ethic. Jay you are a star! In fact hire a suite beach lounger for as many day as you can! If the issues at the start hadn’t occurred I would have been raving about this hotel but they did and did cause us a problem that’s why I cannot give it a five star review, however if the upgrade occurs and it is restored to its standard then I will return, it is paradise. But not a five star paradise......yet. Read less

My husband and I went back to the Maritim 20 years later as we had our honeymoon there. It has changed a lot! There are a lot more hotels surrounding the area now and it is a lot more commercial. It’s still lovely but it’s lost that special Mauritian feel. We stayed for 2 weeks in a Privilege room but because we had stayed there before they upgraded us to Gold cards so we could have breakfast in La Maree which was lovely. ( Otherwise you only get breakfast in La Maree if you book a prestige room) We opted for premium all inclusive which was a lot more money but gave options of more choices in restaurants and a voucher to go to Chateau Mon Desir which is well worth it as the food was amazing. La Banyan was another lovely Asian style restaurant and we really liked it there the service was very good. The beach and pool staff were amazing always checking if you needed any drinks and very friendly and great service. The hotel is due to be re furbished next year and it is needed as it is a bit run down with sun loungers broken etc. The food overall was fantastic, we didn’t go into Bellevue very much as the other restaurants were much better, one evening we went to La Kaz creole which was great, a set menu of Mauritian food for a maximum of 10 people. We went with another couple that we met and other couple joined us so we were 6. It was lovely food and they even gave us a live cooking session of prawn curry which was great. The BBQ restaurant Las Filous was also very good, on the beach in the sand. You shared tables, 6 in each so it made you interact which was good. There were lots of activities included such as glass bottom boat trip, pedals, windsurfing, volleyball, table tennis, giant chess. There are also lovely grounds to explore and see old ruins, giant tortoises and waterfalls. Also for extra you can play golf or go horse riding on the beach. It was a lovely relaxing holiday and we would highly recommend it. Read less
