Veranda Palmar Beach

Mauritius, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, leading down to a lovely beach, the Veranda Palmar Beach offers great value-for-money. Great for those seeking tranquil surrounds and perfect for divers, there are plenty of water sports to enjoy too, including sailing and fishing. For the less energetic, the golden beaches are a perfect haven for sunbathing. The smiles and generous attention of the hotel staff contribute to making this a popular choice of hotel. Families will love the Timono Kids Club, where complimentary activities include sega dance initiation, cooking lessons, handicraft sessions, and cinema on the beach (weather permitting).

Staff are very welcoming on arrival and the place is well maintained. Our room was of good size and the bed was large and comfortable. We couldn't get any English channels on the TV so didn't use it at all and we had a slight problem with getting the right tempreture in the shower. Our room was cleaned by a lady named Vanessa who goes beyond what a cleaner usually does. The room was spotless every day. The guys on the beach offer free water activities such as snorkeling, canoeing and paddle boarding and with other things for a cost. The restaurant was nice and with a good selection buffet. We also loved the two stray cats who would come to the restaurant most days. The guests at the hotel are mostly French, Dutch and German and a few of the other guests were rude and stuck up so we didn't interact with any others while we were there. Overall the hotel was nice and good value for money but believe you will have an even better experience if you are French speaking. Read less

We just returned from a 2 week family holiday. The hotel and rooms are spotless our room cleaned every day and clean towels daily to. The beach is beautiful white sand and clear sea, the glass bottom boat is a must and it’s free. See Raj on the beach for trips he’s reliable. He arranged for use to go and sea the dolphins and a tour of the south of the island. We had our own taxi driver that picked us up at 6am and brought us back around 4pm, his name was Dave 😂. We didn’t have a problem with the food as there was always something to choose from the buffet. If theirs nothing you fancy just ask and they’ll make you something else like pizza and chips, burger and chips or even steak and chips. The only issue we had was you had to pay for things like latte, cappuccino and international branded spirits and some cocktails. Everyone is so friendly and can’t do enough for you, we did have some fun with the barman 😂 I would return and do recommend this place to anyone. Read less

The hotel is nice the rooms are lovely and clean thanks to yash for keeping our room clean with fresh linen and clean towels. The beach is beautiful.

The hotel is nice the rooms are lovely and clean thanks to yash for keeping our room clean with fresh linen and clean towels. The beach is beautiful. Entertainment needs more effort there should be more shows instead of karaoke and live DJ no one participates much. Food was absolutely horrible we had the samething for breakfast for 7 days straight, the food had barely any flavour or spice we couldn't take another day of that food we tried the horizon and they didnt have most things and the things they did have was also terrible the coke tasted gasless and almost more water based If I could rate the food alone I'd give it a 1 out of 5. The staff was so friendly and always tried their best to make us comfortable and accommodated us to the best of their ability. Read less
