Solana Beach Mauritius

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Waiting for your drinks to arrive as you laze on white sands, shaded by a coconut palm. Taking a dip in a lagoon pool among tropical plants and dining and drinking terraces. Stepping out on your balcony to soak in endless sea views before heading out for dinner. This may be the stuff of daydreams, but it’s the true island experience guests come to enjoy when staying at the adults-only Solana Beach. It does deliver a delicious cliché, but this hotel also comes with its own unique twists, like the nod to the sixties and seventies in your spacious guestroom, which is otherwise thoroughly modern. It also gives you the option to do absolutely nothing – or to pack your days with cycling, diving, snorkelling, and even complimentary glass-bottom boat trips, and your nights with island entertainment and meals in three delectable restaurants.

I stayed at Solana Hotel from 22 Feb til 08 Mars for my quarantine. I had a superb room with sea view, the food was excellent and the service of the staffs were incredible. Every morning , a sweet lady , Madame Dabypersad would call to take my order , she provided the best service possible. I was in fact amazed as the hotel had arranged fitness classes and evening live concerts. Highly talented those staffs. My only disappointment was the fact that I could not receive alcohol from my families who came to drop for me. The most stupid answer that I heard was that , the doctor at the hotel objected to bring any alcohol from outside. ( I’m assuming that alcohol bottles have coronavirus virus on its surface ) I understand that the hotel would prefer to sell Alcohol on its premises rather than to let people bring their own but keeping the fact that it was a tough period and were not able to go out of the room , they should have allowed it , besides it was just for 2 cans of beers. Next time , it would be grateful , if with the pre arrival letter that the hotel send , mentioning that no alcohol would be allowed from outside from families then maybe we could bring ours , or buy from duty free shops , which many other travelers did. In anyway , it was a nice stay. Read less

I have chosen this hotel for the quarantine and it was such an amazing experience. ROOMS: The view from the rooms is just stunning. Solana have the best sunrise and seafront views. You can't stop taking pictures of it. I was surprised that room and the balcony are much bigger than on pictures. I was working during my quarantine and the staff arranged the room in the way that I had everything I needed: a workdesk, a chair, decent Wi-Fi connection for the video meetings. They even proposed to set up the Wi-Fi router if needed. I mostly spent time outside on my balcony working with my laptop. Eating and sunbathing during the breaks and practicing yoga and meditation in the evening. Superior rooms have direct sun few hours in the morning and shadow from around 11.00 A.M. It's nice because otherwise it would be too hot to sit outside. My room number was 1222. Its a corner room, highly recommended, just in front of the Wi-Fi router that is set up on the palm tree. The rooms are quiet, and I could not hear my neighbors. FOOD: I am vegetarian and my menu was delicious and various: Indian, Mauritian, continental. Here I ate best biryani with soy meat ever. They are also very flexible if you want smth else. The portions are huge, and everything is so tasty. You get fresh exotic fruits every day. Just to pick up the phone and order whatever you want they try to arrange it for you. SERVICE: At the reception desk they have a fairy named Rajnee who can fulfill every wish and request. In general, the staff at Solana Beach Mauritius is super sweet. You can see that they are very well trained and customer oriented but at the same time very sincere and kind. Very pleasant experience that make me feel wanna go back here. ENTERTAINMENT: Even though we all were in quarantine, the staff did everything to entertain us. Chris B and his team did such an amazing job with fitness class in the morning and concerts in the evening. Sorena and Janice sing so beautifull. And these guys even made me do burpees (for the first time in my life!) in this heat :) Allé allé! 😉 OUTSIDE AREA: The hotel has beautiful green gardens and white sandy beach. Many exotic birds outside that start singing with sunrise. Some days were windy and its nice because it was not too hot to sit outside. I was wearing bikini all the time. I felt like I am in paradise, not in quarantine. Hihgly recommend this hotel not only for the quarantine but for the holidays also. I am already planning to come back. Read less

I came across the Solana Beach Hotel through the MTPA website while searching for a hotel to quarantine in Mauritius. I would definitely say that it was the perfect choice. I had a good experience, even though been kinda forced to stay in the room, but the sea view from the balcony was just relaxing. Service from the whole team at the Solana was spot on and no issues from that side. Only hiccup was the wifi connection, which has the tendency to drop at times. Mr. Mackline Rose(our quarantine Manager) made sure we(I strongly believed that all the guests who quarantine at that time would agree) had everything we needed and even added some Mauritian goodies, which I loved. I strongly recommend Solan beach in case you are planning to travel to the Island let it be for quarantine or if you are looking for a good 4 stars hotel. Well done Solana Beach Hotel Team!!

We absolutely had a wonderful time with our 3 very young children. The staff has been the mega highlight for us. I can't thank everyone enough who made such a big effort to make my stay so comfortable and happy. Definitely felt the warmth of the beautiful people in my home country :) Its been fantastic from the time of booking the hotel with excellent customer service from Rajnee to making it perfect for us to stay with all my requirements satisfied. Despite all the challenges of quarantine, the staff was always so nice on the phone, giving us a warm nod when they came to deliver the food . So grateful to Rakesh and chef and all the catering staff for the amazing baby food(highly recommended) and all our yummy food. Thanks to Valerie who came to give me mint tea and always so lovely. And the lovely people who said hello and made my children smile. The reception staff was so nice and always ready to help anytime and super friendly. They even arranged for a baby chair which wasn't in the hotel and went above and beyond to help. Big thank you to the doctor and team for securing our country and making it super safe by doing our daily checks and pcr tests. We loved the deluxe room with the wonderful sea view and made our stay extra special. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to come back again soon. It's been fun :) Read less
