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

Staying at Cotton Bay was nice. The food was good. There is a lack of variety of food though. Type of food for breakfast everyday is of limited variety. The hotel itself is nicely situated and the beach in your room's backyard is just marvellous :)

We went there twice, first on our honeymoon and then for our 2nd wedding anniversary. First time was fine but not the 2nd time. The room was ok apart from the fact that the AC/heater was not working. It was mega cold but there was no pool water heating system. The food was delicious this time.However, due to some pipe... More

No watersport offered except for scuba diving which I thought was a bit of a pity but Rodrigues is such a beautiful place that I... More

We had a nice, quiet and peaceful stay at Cotton Bay. The staff are really polite, but the only problem is the long time they take to respond to customers' queries. But guess that's because the Island itself works at a slow pace. Overall was a nice experience and really enjoyed the typical rodriguan dance
