Room was average with a clean bathroom. Dinner is very good but not lot of varieties on the menu. Excellent view but the pool was not clean and the sea seems part of a port or so, so u can't swim freely. I didn't like the breakfast, i find that it was poor, skipped all the following days and took... More

This is a lovely spot on the beach near Tamarin. The restaurant is in a very pleasant setting and the food is good whether it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Friends have stayed in the hotel and come back time after time. If you are looking for somewhere nice, but don't want a... More

Excellent experience, been there for lunch and dinner. 2 menus, one for lunch and another one for dinner. Guests can also use the swimming pool during lunch which is so nice. Staffs are friendly and food is good. They go extra mile to please the customers.

I dined here several times but did not stay (a colleague did stay). The evening setting is excellent, low cushioned chairs, chilled music and great views over the lagoon. Food was OK but they managed to undercook my king prawns, almost jelly-like. My colleague was woken at 3am one night by a new guest knocking on all bedroom doors to... More

I stayed in The Bay for three nights. My overall experience was very good. The Hotel is located towards the south of Mauritius. The location itself was very calm and less crowded. It provides pick up and drop from the airport at a very reasonable cost. The Bay is about an hour (or 90 mins in traffic) away from the... More

Amazing views, the best in the West! Fred and Aurelie offer amazing, homely service and the staff are very hospitable, including the Amazing Yavin. Great place for breakfast, lunch, dinner and night caps. Love the food, the pool kept my kids happy all day long and the sunset is unbeatable. Will always recommend the Bay, the memories are literally unforgettable... More

For a place that has all the potential and the view for the best boutique hotel in Maurituis, it falls sadly short in all other areas. The attention to detail is lacking in the rooms, the service, the food and the appearance. Paying a high price, we don't see the value and certain areas are in desperate need of attention.
