Spent Christmas and New year at this hotel and it was great. The hosts are excellent and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean rooms and smiling staff, great food in the evening at the small bar. Would probably hire a car if I stayed again but the owners were great for giving you a lift locally. Thoroughly enjoyed my... More

Completely agree with all the previous reviews regarding the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners. The room was large and comfortable with a balcony looking over the garden and a mango tree. There is a basic kitchen area including a microwave. One odd feature was that the shower is not screened from the rest of the room! The immediate area... More

We spent Christmas and New Year at Marlin Creek residence, it is an oasis. Christophe and Amore together with respective wives are the most attentive hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they also have lots of advice on trips, restaurants and beaches. The rooms are superb and equipped with a kettle and microwave and the balcony has a chair,... More

We spent our Christmas holidays at Marlin Creek, and had an excellent experience overall, thanks in large part to some wonderful hosting from the owners. Highlights: - Black River is a very authentic local area, which gave us a true feel of the island. We passed many strip malls along the way from the airport and no doubt areas like... More

The Marlin Creek was our first place to stay in Mauritius. We received a warm and friendly welcome from Christophe. Our room was big with a comfortable bed, 2 balconies overlooking the gardens. Microwave, fridge and kettle were a great addition. Situated at the end of a road away from the main road, it is quiet and the ideal place... More

We sought a tropical haven and that is precisely what we found at Marlin Creek. Authentic Mauritius. Good breakfasts, large and very comfortable rooms, substantial pool and superb grounds. Personnel faultless. Nothing but "stars" - generous, available, informative and thoughtful. Lots to see and do. Would be very hard to find better and better value (in Mauritius or elsewhere!!). Five... More

This is our first time in Mauritius - came all the way from Nigeria. We paid to stay in a 4* hotel but bad and inefficient planning from our travel agent - Tifa Travels landed us in Marlin Creek. Imagine our shock and depression when we landed in a bed & breakfast instead of the expected 4* hotel! It was... More

My wife and spent 5 nights at Marlin Creek during an 18 night stay on the island. Twins Christophe and Amore manage the place with care and a personal touch (together with respective wives Ingrid and Pascaline) and with obvious pride in keeping their guests happy. Nothing seems too much for them and they will happily book a restaurant table... More

Great place to explore the island! Le Morne is only a 15 minute drive and very nice, but you can also go to the national park and hike. Rooms are very spacious and nice with good beds. Breakfast is amazing! Christoph and Amori were very nice hosts and will help you with everything. Thanks a lot for the wonderful stay!!

We spent a few days at the Marlin Creek. The place is located very convinient, walking distance from the beach and some restaurants and not far from Port Louis, the mountains and national park. Rooms are spacious, cleaned and nicely decorated. The garden is very nice with a big long pool, the whole atmosphere is very friendly, quite and peaceful.... More
