Rodrigues is one of the best places to relax. Nothing much to do but beautiful sceneries. Gentle population. Cotton Bay Hotel is ideally located, all the rooms face the ocean. Clean rooms. Take a scooter or a 4x4 and off you go around the island.

We had a great experience far from the busy lives..It was a great adventure, the place to be, to relax and to enjoy the joy of nature with your love one. Excellent Rodrigues traditional food and warmhearted staff. It was in winter, but winter in Rodrigues is not that cold weather, so you will enjoy one of the most beautiful... More

Wonderful aesthetics around the pool area with a sparkling blue pool looking into the ocean. The beach never got too crowded at any given time and we always had our space around us even with children around us all the time. One could do some snorkelling in the area around the resort but only in the morning before the tide... More

Had lunch in the main restaurant there this December. The fish was awful: cold with just some sauce over it while it should have been properly cooked in it. The staff was just as cold as the fish. We did not feel welcomed at all and they even told us that there was no drinkable water left when 10 minutes... More

We visited a few years back while on holiday in Mauritius. It was great to get away from the golf resorts and containment of toirism in Mauritius. Rodrigues people are an interesting mix of European, Indian and African. The culture seems to hark back to the days of the slave trade, resulting in a creole feeling. The hotelmis right on... More

The hotel is quite old but they have renovated some rooms which are nice, authentic & cosy. The food was good with a variety of choices. The team members were great. The kids had a great time. We will definitely go back.

Spacious room. Old TV non-functional remote. No spoons (any size) / soup bowls in restaurant. No tap water at all in all rooms 17&18 Aug. No internet during week-end. We are told all parasols out of order but in fact it is only that the person in charge of opening them was unavailable. Only 2 old worn towels per room.... More

On the whole we enjoyed our stay at the Cotton Bay Hotel. We stayed half board. Our deluxe room was very spacious and had a beautiful sea view, which was just metres away. However, the room could have done with a bit of a makeover in some places. We also had a large bathroom with a bath and separate shower.... More
