“Stunning Landscape and an incredible culinary experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

Not my first visit but I was pleasantly surprised with the incredible culinary experience after my recent stay in March 2014 for 4 days .It was the new Chef Thierry that made all the difference. The food was amazingly delicious and unmatched in its authenticity.

Keep away all attempts to put a star grading to E Mourouk. It is an old hotel which just passed through a violent cyclone, no TV, no telephone, JUST THE BASIC. Wifi only in lobby and quite slow but airconditioned room with ceiling fan. However after the one hour to adapt to this change which brought me 20 years back in time; it was worth the price.
The staff is simply marvellous. Very windy area and the only place where kitesurf is practised. Had the chance to have a real buffet "Rodriguais" with the "Sega Rodriguais" afterwards.
Enjoy and let your stress deplete by driving all over the island in a 4x4. You'll love every bit of it.

Room Tip: All rooms face the horizon, better get one nearer the main lobby- A or B. There is however a VILLA O...

We stayed 4 nights at Mourouk and found it very enjoyable. Checked in on a Wednesday around eleven and were greeted with the traditional "jus limon" ! They were by far the best we had on the island ( and trust me we had a few ! ). The hotel is quite old and you can tell by looking at the various amenities and the rooms. The latter needs a face lift especially the bathrooms. The swimming pool is nice although this also needs renovation. However and strangely enough for us, these little things didn't really matter at Mourouk. I still ask myself why as I tend to be pedantic about these !!! Food in rodrigues tends to be a lot of seafood and we weren't disappointed with what was offered at Mourouk. We had lunch at the beach bar which I rarely tasted fish that fresh ! Dinner was buffet for 3 nights with very good variety. The barbecue buffet on Wednesday was simply outstanding ! Fish grilled to perfection, local meaty grilled lamb on its bone ! On one of the nights, there was a 3 course menu with soup, fish with a safran source and a chocolate fondant. Again full marks for the food. The chefs are easily approachable and you can request something specific if you can't have what is on the menu. Likewise breakfast is a rodrigues continental style. We used to ask for "crepes" and chocolate sauce and within 5-10 mins you had them made and brought to your table. The "jus limon" was probably best during breakfast. Drinks ( water, soft drinks, beer, wine and local cocktails ) are all affordable for a hotel.

Service in general was 5 star. The staff ( all from rodrigues ) are always smiling and attending to your needs. They are always cool, relaxed and never felt like rushing.

All in all, if you want something with stunning beach views or fancy kite surf, want to enjoy decent local cuisine and aren't fussy the old room / amenties at an affordable price, then I think Mourouk should be top of your list of hotels to consider. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Room Tip: Choose a room which is mid way from the main entrance and the reception ( bungalows D or E ). The v...

i went there for the fist time for my birthday in October 2011. I was impressed by the peace and harmony there. The people are soooo kind and friendly. The hotel was very nice and I really liked it there. I then offered 4 days stay for their 25th Anniversary and they too had a memorable time there. Highly recommend you this splendid hotel...

We spent 4 nights and 5 days at the hotel. We arrived in the morning in Rodrigues and after a little lost adventure, we finally arrived at Mourouk at noon.
At our arrival, you are immediately taken care of by a smiling staff, a cold towel and of course the best of all the amazing and famous limon juice.We checked in very rapidly and found our room with a beautiful view of the sea.
We had lunch there and were more than satisfied by the tastefulness of the dishes. You really have to try the "salade ourite sec" which is the best of all.
I could write a literature about this hotel but will make it short this time.
* Perfect location - 30 minutes to Airport, 20 minutes to Port Mathurin, 10 minutes to Mont Lubin and 5 minutes to Gravier.
*Perfect wind location for windsurfers
*Amazing staff - Always there to help, always smiling, 5 star staff.
Entertainment - Awesome!
*Rooms - Good. No TV but so much do do outside that you don't mind.
*View - Breath-taking
*Food - Wonderful - A good variety for breakfast and dinner - Very tasty! Cocktails also were very good.
*Overall Price - Excellent

Room Tip: Rooms J1, J2, J3 - Best views!

stayed at the hotel for almost a week and loved every moment. The location is perfect though abit windy and the view from the room was just wow which compensated the rather outdated room and didn't feel the lack of a tv.
The staff is really friendly and helpful in the true rodriguans way. Always with a smile and honest care for guests.
Its a hotel which is rather basic but the joy of staying there exceeds all expectations and you forget about all the bling bling we find in 5 stars.
Day out on a scooter would be the best way to enjoy Rodrigues and for a massage I would suggest Cotton Bay Hotel which 20 mins away by taxi.
A huge thank you to Marie Therese, Diocese, Michelle and the staff of the Mourouk Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms face the beautiful lagoon
