Great quiet out of the way boutique hotel in a stunning setting with a pool right on the beach ! I found the staff to be extremely helpful and polite. A great setting for friends and family who want to relax on a relatively quite beach nearby to all the local shopping centers.

On our way from the North to the South we by coincidence discovered this small boutique hotel with a classical romantic garden restaurant with stunning views over the ocean. It was lunchtime so we had the opportunity to taste some specials from the menu. Service is outstanding and the atmosphere is extremely relaxing. The hotel hosts several rooms which are... More

What a find! A lovely small boutique beach hotel with a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. Our sea view room was very pleasant,a good size and spotlessly clean. Towels were changed on request including our beach towels. The staff were excellent, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. I am gluten-free and my partner vegetarian - potentially a nightmare to cater... More

The live band was really nice however too loud during dinner as we could not hear each other unless we screamed. We were told there was no butter as it had not been delivered, no pulses as it was finished even if availability of same was confirmed at order, more training must be given to staff in general and also...

We enjoyed dinner at the Bay restaurant, the restaurant is beautifully decorated and the view overlooking the water was absolutely amazing. They had a live band playing which created a wonderful and relaxing atmosphere. The food was delicious and and the service was excellent. Our waiter was attentive but not overbearing.

We booked a sea view room and were wowed by the space of the balcony and views - definitely worth the extra. Loved the small number of rooms - so much better than a large impersonal resort. Half board set menu option was superb - we didn't feel the need to supplement it. Guess a side room may not have... More

An absolutely lovely, charming boutique hotel and restaurant, in an Idyllic setting! Being a kitesurfer and surfer, I usually stay at one of the big hotels in Le Morne, but this year I chose The Bay, which turned out to be absolutely lovely, and I shall definitely be returning and highly recommending this boutique, discrete hotel and restaurant! Situated in... More

Let's face it - it's not difficult to find a hotel on the beach in Mauritius, but The Bay Hotel is different from the rest. We found The Bay to be relaxed and not overly pretentious. Good value for money, charming service if a little slow at times...but hey, we weren't in a hurry! You can choose your seating at... More

Stayed at the bay for a week and had such a perfect time. The rooms are great and very clean, but what sets this place appart is the friendliness of the staff, the delicious restaurant, the beautiful chill out pool and the sunset. Guests off the 5 star and over priced hotels on the island come here to enjoy the... More
