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

Very nice very easygoing laid back small hotel right on the beach. Good food, rooms OK, staff lovely and friendly. Recommended if you are happy with something not too plush and nice and quiet with beach walks.

Its a small hotel but they charge like 5 star hotels and service is way below 5*. Staff needs further training, there's a lack of professionalism. We called to book a dinner on the beach and the guy on the phone gave us the menu and the cost. When we reach there, the tables were not yet laid, the waiters... More

I had the opportunity on Christmas to have lunch with my family at the The Bay Hotel. It was a very experience, with a nice location. Cool atmosphere, nice decor, and good food. We really enjoyed the general atmosphere of this hotel, for sure, if I had opportunity I will stay there in future to experience their accomodation and hospitality

We had enjoyed dinner at The Bay last year, so had a good idea of what to expect this year, and we were not disappointed. We had the large suite on the first floor with views over the swimming pool and sea - masses of space and a large terrace/balcony to relax on after a tough day at the beach... More
