Having stayed at the bay twice before for work I returned with my husband who loved it as much as me - it is so relaxing and calm. Our daughter treated us to a balcony room overlooking the pool and the sea - absolutely wonderful. I have read some previous comments about slow service at the Bay and commented the... More

Found The Bay by chance whilst taking the long route to the airport. A glimpse of sea and sand down the lane and a well presented sign sent me to explore and glad I did. Great location right on the beach with nicely laid out tables, service was good and the food simple but tasty (great French fries - just... More

The Food is average at best , and there are a few places within a walking distance that offer better lunch & dinner. The rooms are nice & cozy in a true Boutique style. The service at the restaurant is very poor : Breakfast is a simple choice of English or Continental, but the flies around the tables are something... More

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!
