My wife and 2 children are frequent visitors of the Bay Hotel for breakfast, lunch, dinner, group excursions. We had not stayed overnight as yet (as children are quite young). This is an exceptional boutique hotel - the layout of the hotel is amazing - nestled in between other hotels and restaurants, it is larger than it looks from the... More

A beach front al fresco restaurant which is a haven of peace and quiet, except you will all spoil it now by going to enjoy a lazy time there. Enjoyed a non-alcoholic cocktail and a snack in the form of a fantastic Cheeseburger (sorry typical Brit abroad here), but it was a lovely blend of flavours so I have no... More

We go there for our relaxed Sunday lunch by the beach with a beautiful view. Very good food specially the Mauritian specialties which are authentic and tasty. The General Manager and his wife are professional, friendly and give a soul to the place.

I visited the Bay last year and returned again at the end of April with my daughter and a friend/colleague. Once again for me this was largely a work trip; it was even better than my first visit! The hotel is so comfortable and easy to be in and the staff could not be friendlier. On arrival I was warmly... More

When we decided on Mauritius as our vacation destination we were clear from the beginning that we did not want one of those huge 200 rooms + monstrosities but rather something private with few rooms. We actually found The Bay Hotel on tripadvisor and decided to book it based on the very good recommendations. And what a find it is... More

We stayed in Mauritius on our honeymoon and travelled all around the island. Although it is hard to find cheaper places to stay, we thought this hotel was a bit overpriced and you could get more for your money. The positives were: friendly staff, a nice restaurant, wonderful sunsets and a lovely swimming pool all on the beach. The beach... More

For me, it was a total pleasure to stay in this hotel - the food and services were exellent and the staff professional and friendly - will definitely stay there again when visiting Mauritius! A friend from Mauritius was staying with me - Mr Paul-Sylvain duPre - and he recommended this beautiful and quiet hotel in la preneuse!

Came to this hotel for sundowner drinks and dinner. On first impression the hotel looks great, clean - with a beautiful setting right by the ocean. We sat down on the couches with a great view of the ocean and the beach as the sun was setting. We intended to have sundowner drinks - those drinks sadly only arrived after... More

This hotel could be a real little star. It sits in the most fantastic location on the beachside and is very pleasantly decorated and comfortable. Living nearby, we have been coming here fairly regularly for the last year for either dinner or drinks to watch the sunset. My bugbear is the really really abysmal service that we constantly encounter whenever... More
