Maritim Resort & Spa Mauritius

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 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.

An 11 night stay at Maritim Resort and Spa in January was a fantastic break from the mad world of Covid. The staff were courteous at all times and the hotel has great facilities. We were lucky that the hotel was very quiet probably due to the travel restrictions and no travel at all from South Africa. Check in was easy and safe with the mandatory LF test taking minutes. The room was spacious enough to be comfortable and being on the ground floor had a small area to sit outside. Once we had settled in the use of the restaurants was a pleasant change to the buffet although the standard and choices of food was of the highest standard everywhere. We loved La Maree, which is a short walk along the beach. Many thanks to Rakesh………..it’s not his fault he’s a Liverpool fan…………….and the team which made dining a there a delight. The service around the pool was great topped off by Swadesh and his flamboyant delivery of drinks treating everyone like royalty and Neetin who serves the best measures in the southern hemisphere. Fabrice was so considerate waiting on tables in both La Filaos and The Banyan. He remembered, and put on ice, our drinks when he knew we would be there. Great service. I have to mention the help that Depak offered in the boathouse. He was full of information on what was available. On the whole the hotel is clean and tidy, the rooms weren’t 5* sparkling everyday and there were some inconsistencies but I’m going to blame the pandemic. Thank you. Read less

Stayed for a weekend at Maritim Resort & Spa and it was a lovely experience. Kuddos to the bar staffs - Swaraj, Barlen, Bob, Brinda, Swadesh, Darmen and the guy who lives at Tranquebar, we forgot the name ;) but great job guys. Keep it up! The food was delicious and tasty. Very large variety of foods. We had our meals at Belle Vue restaurant. The staffs were very helpful and provided us with all the information regarding the food, however there’s one thing missing in all the restaurant’s staffs including the chefs at the station. - A smile on their faces. Please guys, SMILE - it’s a free therapy :) You never know that one smile of yours can brighten someone’s day. We received a very warm welcome at the reception and the staffs were very accommodating. However, there are just 2-3 staffs at the reception area which we found too less for a big resort as such. The ladies there are doing a great job but sometimes the reception area can be crowded and you’ll have queues as there are too less staffs and also there was only 1 porter running everywhere. The swimming pools are the assets of the resort, overlooking the sea and best for cooling off under the scorching sun. Overall, we loved it and we’ll be back very soon Thank you Maritim Team.

Extremely rude and arrogant Hotel Security. The Security should never be working in the hospitality industry. The Security shouted at 4 elderly holiday makers from South Africa for walking on the public area of yhe Beach in front of the hotel. The behavior was totally unacceptable.

By some distance the worst hotel experience we have had in Mauritius. The booking was a nightmare, with lots of unclear communication, the hotel agreeing to requests in advance and then refusing them on arrival. Examples include: can our third child stay in our room for the same price, if not no problem she can stay with her aunt who is also coming to the hotel at the same time - the hotel said yes and then charged us a surcharge for it; we asked if we could have lunch on the day of arrival rather than the day of check out, the hotel said yes and then charged us for lunch on the day of arrival. When we raised these issues to management we were meet with a defensive, legalistic, aggressive response which was very disappointing. The stay itself was a little better. The rooms were decent, the setting was good, the pool was well designed, and some individual staff members were fantastically nice and helpful. However, this was undermined a little by ridiculous queues - caused by bad planning and not nearly enough serving stations per guest; mediocre food, and abysmal, overly sweet and weak cocktails. Will never return to this or other Maritim hotels again Read less
