Nice Hotel Overall. When i was there renovation works for the rooms were ongoing. Had an older room but had a chance to have a glimpse of the new room which look very nice. WIFI is available only in lobby and bar but the connection is so poor that you will give up in connecting to anything. However, the goal... More

Got lots of recommendations for this place but was not that impressed. We stayed there for 3 nights during which we got almost the same type of foods during our dinner and breakfast -very very limited variety proposed by the cook. The services also proposed is not that great. Every time I had to tell them 2 - 3 times... More

Cotton Bay Hotel is a nice and safe place to stay for a good vacation in Rodrigues. The staff is nice and helpful. the place is lovely and very relaxing. You couldn't be closer to the sea than at cotton Bay! The sound of the waves crashing on the shore from your room is wonderful! The only issue is that... More

We just stayed at Cotton Bay. We have had numerous recommendations for the place, but we didn't expect much from it, so the review is based on reasonable expections (in my view). The hotel property shows clear signs that it has been around for a while. It's simple but it works fine. The room was ok, it could need more... More

Travel brochures about Rodrigues invariably describe the island as laid-back. The epitaph also fits the Cotton Bay Hotel like a glove. First impressions are important. In this respect, the hotel scores low.The immediate road leading up to the hotel is a shambles. The surrounding area is unkempt if not outright filthy. The fences are worn. The lattice-work around the otherwise... More

We stayed at the hotel for four days in 2014. The waiters are very nice. Cool swimming pool. Many outdoor activities. The food over there is quite good. The rooms are very tidy. When we were leaving,they made a two ducks with towels. Best hotel in Rodrigues.

It was a few year ago and did not have time to write the review before. We were there to celebrate a wedding and the event location was nicely decorated around the pool. The room I visited was nice and spacious. It was a successful wedding!

Been there for a lunch. We received a warm welcome by the hotel staff. The food was good. But when we asked that we would like to order some cocktails... none of those [resent on their menu card was available..... this was very disapointing.

Nice Hotel to relax and very peaceful and even from the rooms, you can hear the waves. In terms of in-room amenities, very very poor. Only 1 small soap per person for a 4 days stay, just deceiving. No shower gel, no shampoo.On the last day, we were very much deceived when we realized that one of our swimming suit... More
