Very friendly front desk and restaurant staff. I found the evening walks on the beach very refreshing. Opportunity to sample Mauritian food by the beach front. Taxi costs for Non-Locals can be expensive

Misleading advertisement, air conditioning not working, staff fighting, very limited activities, cheap but still far from being value for money. Uncomfortable sleep and beds, not recommended at all!!!

We stayed at Tamarin in 2014 and enjoyed it...Especially the big swimming pool where the kids were splashing all day. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Internet connection is very slow and not a pleasure at all. Food is good but should have a greater variety on buffet if you are staying for long time and not eating same thing... More

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
