The hotel

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, leading down to a lovely beach, the Veranda Palmar Beach is great for those seeking tranquil surrounds. There are plenty of water sports to enjoy too, including diving, 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).

Excellent service! family away from home. Will visit again with my kids. Resort is children friendly! We had a royal time relaxing on the beach, drinking cocktails and local rum! Went on a speed boat to 5 Eiland’s... what an experience! We fed monkeys, saw the most beautiful waterfall. Went snorkelling - saw dolphins, sea turtles and fruit bats the size of an eagle! Had a good laugh with new friends. The resort has snorkelling, glass bottom boat, paddling, a bar on the beach and relaxing chairs on the beach for the guest to use, included with the package. Five days was just too short... was not able to do the glass bottom boat. We also wanted to visit Port Louise. Reception is open 24 hours to serve their guest. welcoming and friendly. The resort, rooms and restaurant are clean and neat. Restaurant has three buffet meal per day as well as tea and pancakes in the afternoon. The food is good and more than enough! Overall, everything was amazing. An Eiland feeling that I was only dreaming about! Tips: Remember shoes to wear is the ocean for there is quite a lot of sea urchins as well as snorkelling gear. You can buy snorkelling gear in Flacq at super u, but they do not always have stock. Souvenir shops in Belle Mare have stock but is quite expensive. Read less

On the hotels website it looks stunning but in reality its just OK. The food was very repetitive, plenty of it but all very similar, no mobile food truck no food/snacks at the bar as advertised on their fact sheet. The rooms pretty standard.

On the hotels website it looks stunning but in reality its just OK. The food was very repetitive, plenty of it but all very similar, no mobile food truck no food/snacks at the bar as advertised on their fact sheet. The rooms pretty standard. The entertainment was like any hotel entertainment, karaoke, singers, nothing that stands out. Water sports not great, they advertise electric sea scooter, floating sea lounge, floating volley pit and they don't have any of those, they do have a glass bottom boat but they will only take you out at a set time, mornings only 11.30am for an hour. The staff are predominantly friendly, the bar staff and waiters along with housekeeping all friendly and attentive. The reception not so friendly, on arrival you have a COVID test, the staff member who carried out our tests did so quite harshly and poked the swab way to high inside the nostril causing pain. We were not given any overview of the hotel and found out more talking to a vendor on the beach than the reception staff. The rooms we had were very noisy, pool view and opposite the entertainment, we asked for a quiet room and were told the hotel was fully booked unless we wanted a sea view riom which would be an extra 50 euros per night. Overall, not impressed and considering the cost would not recommend this hotel. Read less
