Checking in took ages. The lady took our passports and was chitchatting with a colleague for at least 10 minutes. After 20 minutes just to complete the paperwork, we thought that we would be led to our room. But after 10 minutes waiting, we ask and we are told 10 minutes before our room is ready. This was a ridiculous... More

We stayed at the Tamarin Hotel for 4 days in December. We generally enjoyed our stay. Rooms are simple but clean. Staff is very friendly. We liked the fact that the toilet was a separate room. Good location as across the road from the beach, big swimmingpool. Quite location. If I had to say anything negative it would be that... More

Did not stay here but visited on several occasions for drinks and food. Beautiful location across the road from Tamarin beach. Excellent staff here, as friendly and helpful as we met anywhere in Mauritius. Visited twice for sundowners and on another occasion for a meal with our daughter. Evening meals are buffet style, whether resident or not, on this evening... More

The place to be for Music Lovers and if you have the opportunity do look into the Jazz Festivals often organized there; you can also go there as an outsider guest for a lunch or apero or dinner or for the entertainment. The General Manager is an excellent saxophonist and I hope you have the opportunity to listen to him.... More

The good: Nice pool area and very friendly staff. The bad: 1) Rooms are very run down and dirty: Stained curtains, holes in the bedding, mosquitos, dirty bathroom, broken closets, 2 ligh bulbs out, aircon vent broken. Don't be fooled by the photos provided by the hotel...check the real ones below! 2) Poorly Managed: When we complained about the state... More

The hotel is located across the street from the public beach. I loved my stay there. Small hotel with a nice atmosphere. The rooms are filled with vibrant colours. The food was nice. Oh and for an additional charge you get to go on a speedboat to watch the dolphins in the lagoon. Price is value for money.

Having read about the Tamarin we decided to visit and have a sundowner or three in the outdoor bar (where the musicians play). It's quite an experience if you like lots and lots of primary colours; walls, chairs, pretty well everything is bright and buzzy, even the cocktails match the decor! Do go and see it, plus the view from... More

We liked this place. Yes, it's a bit rough around the edges, but it's good value, unpretentious, friendly and we enjoyed our stay. The 70's decor is great, there is live jazz in the evenings, and dolphin trips leave from outside the front entrance, which is directly opposite tamarin beach. The food isn't brilliant but the drinks are good value... More
