Excellent service, too many individuals to name but a few were exceptional: Yoshinia, Marcus, Toushita, Meffoocah. And thanks to all the staff who made this a very special holiday. This was our fifth visit… See you next year at the same time.

From the moment of arrival, The Westin Turtle Bay, delivered beyond expectaions. Check-in was relaxed, sitting in a lounge area with a refreshing drink, rather than queueing in a lobby like many other hotels. Our room was superb, luxuriously appointed and most spacious, with a lovely view. Housekeeping seemed to attend no less than 3 times per day, changing towels, replenishing consumable items and genrally tidying up. Thank you Kavita and team! The hotels extensive grounds were a delight, and walking around helped to burn off some calories from eating the delicious food in all the hotel restaurants. Even the buffet was of high quality, immensely varied and totally delicious. The staff within Westin Turtle Bay made our 10 days probably the best trip we've taken. Smiles were ever present, nothing was too much trouble and it was clear the staff were happy and looked after by management. Whilst too numerous to mention all, we do have to make special mention of, and express our thanks to, Mehfooza and Verdun at the beach grill, Vicky and Sanjana at the retreat bar, Jerome and Pascal at the Whisper pool, Seam and Doomun at Mystique, Pamela and Soonita in All Seasons, and Mr Jameel the duty manager who was most accommodating of all our requests.

It was a very nice stay, we felt very comfortable. Thank you very much! We would like to thank the entire team for unforgettable moments. In particular, our thanks go to Mr. Jameel (Manager), Mr. Seam (Restaurant Manager), Ms. Artee for the delicious cocktails, Ms. Jamini (Roomservice). We would like to thank everyone at Mystique for a wonderful evening at Sea View, especially Mr. Vimal. Thank you very much! 🙏 Only Mr. Berthy, who has taken us valuable vacation time due to his unprofessional behaviour, we can definitely not recommend! In the beginning, he promised us a lot and didn't keep anything. He wanted to convey far too expensive tours of the island to us. Please be careful and ask around. There are far better ways than booking a tour through Mr. Berthy. Best regards from the guests from room 1212 Read less

We've visited The Westin Mauritius for our honeymoon and it could not have been any better. The resort is incredibly beautiful. All the public places (pools, restaurants, bar, lobby, spa area, etc.) are clean, comfortable and luxuriously furnitured. The resort is nicely situated and it's garden is meticulously maintained and offers spectacular views around every corner. Our room (Heavenly Junior Suite) was comfortable, perfectly equipped with all amenities you can wish for, a huge and comfy bed with sunset view, a beachfront terrace with direct access to the sea and an astounding bathroom with big bathtub, in and outdoor-shower. In one word: the resort was PERFECT. But the most spectacular and unforgattable trait of the resort was the remarkable staff and service! We've never felt that pampered and well cared-for on any other holiday in our life. All the staff was friendly, caring, helpful, service-oriented and gave us an overall welcoming feeling. Everytime we had a question, a wish or when we needed some advice or service, the staff was happily willing to assist in any way possible. Three members of the staff, that made our stay truly unforgettable, we want to mention by name: Soonita, who usually was our waitress at breakfast, always welcomed us with a big, heartwarming smile on her face and remembered our orders and preferences after just one day. Pamela, who prepared the omletts in the mornings (they were delicious!) and Berty, who even welcomed us in German and was always there for assistance. Overall it was the most pleasant experience and we would (and will) definitely come back! Read less
