We stayed two nights at the Westin Turtle Bay and it was excellent. The service and staff are amazing. The rooms are large and modern. The food was also excellent but the presentation of the buffet should be improved. Overall an excellent stay

Special thanks to Kevin for making our holiday so special as well as Nitesh, Sakish, Budha, Jeremie, Terry and Baden amongst many others. Nothing is too much trouble. Food and drinks were exceptional...my only slight niggle was the lack of choice for All Inclusive in restaurants...especially Fusion. Would 100% recommend this hotel and hope to come back one day.

The rooms were very spacious. We were all inclusive and ate in all the restaurants which were excellent. Particular favourite, Fusion. Very few supplements on the a la carte which is unusual an refreshing. Pools great , if not a little chilly. Great water sports team and plenty to entertain the teenagers for a week. Excellent stay, very friendly and attentive staff. Word or caution, take your beach shoes. Sea swimming from the beach is tricky. Read less

This is the second time we have visited Mauritius as we have family here on the island. We decided to stay at The Westin Turtle Bay for this visit and we are so happy we chose this beautiful hotel for many reasons. Firstly, the hotel, grounds, restaurants, rooms and the beach are all beautiful and all maintained to a very high standard. The hotel is located right on the beach front and you have fantastic views of the ocean from the main buffet restaurant (seasonal tastes), the Beach Grill and Mystique restaurant. Fusion and Kangan restaurants are located next to the stunning large hotel swimming pool. All food served at all restaurants was amazing and there is a lot on offer. Being on the all inclusive package is a must, to be able to relax and not worry about additional costs. You can pay extra for certain meals and drinks, but there is a lot to choose from on the all inclusive package. Secondly, the hotels facilities and entertainment were brilliant. The fitness gym is equipped with excellent machines and weights. The kids club looked excellent. There were also lots of water sports activities to participate in along with fitness classes such as yoga and swim aerobics. Gino and his team were amazing in offering excellent evening entertainment and the Saga night was our favourite! Lastly, what makes this hotel exceptional is all the staff that attend to your every needs. The staff at the hotel make you feel so very welcomed and relaxed and nothing is too much of an effort to ensure your stay is perfect. When arriving at the hotels reception on our first day we were greeted with a warm welcome from Rajveer and he was exceptional in helping us throughout our stay along with Didier and Joanna. Staff in the restaurants were incredible along with all the chefs that make the amazing food. To name some of the amazing staff we have the pleasure of getting to know and made our stay very special; Vaden, Dooshyant, Yovina, Budha, Jeremie, Vishakha, Pascal (beach grill chef), Jerome (Kangan), Cedric (Fusion) Nitish, Jeffrey, Rajeev. Twice a day our rooms would be cleaned and were always stocked with the essential amenities and we would like to thank Sameer and his team for maintaining our rooms to a very high standard. A special thank you also needs to go to Simla. Thank you once again to all at The Westin Turtle Bay for the amazing hospitality and giving us the perfect holiday. We would all highly recommend this hotel if you are looking to visit Mauritius. Read less
