Reviewed June 10, 2007

We stayed at Maritim last June for 11 Days. We enjoyed every single minute of our holiday. The restaurants are second to none. The service given by the waitors and the quality of food was just perfect. They made our stay very enjoyable. Our room was lovely and clean, the maid service was exceptional -changing our towels at least twice a day. Mauritius is a lovely place to stay and the people are so friendly. My partner proposed to me on the beach and I couldn't think of a better place to get engaged. It was just perfect. We are now getting married in July and we did consider going back for our honeymoon, but I think it's nice to see different places. We will definately go back to this hotel and I would recommend it to anyone. We cannot think of any faults at all with thsi hotel and we have the most lovely memories that will stay with us forever.

My partner and I stayed at the Maritim Hotel, Mauritius in January 2003. It is hard to find words to explain what a wonderful, briliantly run hotel this is and what a wonderful time we had there! The grounds of the hotel are beautiful. The room was spacious with a large double bed and a great sea view. The bathroom was big. Every morning we had rose petals on the bed and in the bathroom! The staff were extremely friendly and professional. The food was delicious. Be warned though that men must wear long trousers in the dining room, no shorts allowed! The beach was beautiful with crystal clear blue water and white powdery sand. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

Wow, what a place. The hotel itself is fantastic but the staff make it an experience you will never forget. We actually got married at the Maritim and from the moment we checked in, everything went to plan.

We had booked 'all inclusive' and had read a number of negative reviews about the food before leaving. However, I can honestly say that there was nothing to fault. They catered for every taste.

The staff were exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. The Guest Service Team did a wonderful job of arranging the wedding for us. We had a fantastic day. The photographer was fantastic - far better than we could ever have imagined! So, if you are thinking of getting married there but are a bit apprehensive - don't be. We couldn't fault anything about the day.

1. The flowers were superb.
2. The service on the beach was lovely.
3. Photographs out of this world.
4. Video to capture the whole experience.
5. Fantastic meal following the ceremony.
6. Lovely decorated room.

A very special thank you to the staff in the Quarter Deck - especially Deena and Quedo. They really made our holiday!

The hotel itself was superb. We had booked a standard double room for the first week. The rooms are great. However, for the second we, we had upgraded to a Prestige Room and it was well worth the extra money!!!

We would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone!

We have jsut recently returned from staying at the Maritim for 2 weeks for our Honeymoon.
Service in the hotel was fantastic and the food was excellent.
The staff could not do enough for us. Although the hotel was fully booked on our second week, we did not notice. The hotel still felt nice and quiet. Its the perfect place for relaxing and chilling out for 2 weeks. Lots of sports activities which pleased my Husband, and there was a band on most nights and sometimes a show, which were nice as you could still sit and chat and relax.
I would go back and would recommend it to anyone who wants to go somewhere that you dont have to lift a finger, everything is done for you.

Just returned from our silver wedding trip, part of which was spent at the Martitim Hotel Mauritius. Having used this site a lot whilst planning our trip, I thought it was only fair to put my own review on.

We were completely satisfied with the hotel and especially the service from the extremely polite and friendly staff. It was wonderful to be met at the hotel entrance after a very long journey, by a friendly member of staff with cold towels and a lovely cooling cocktail. Checking in was done with quiet efficiency, no queing at reception, sat in comfortable chairs admiring the magnificent view of the indian ocean while the necessary documents were dealt with.

We stayed in the basic room, which was very comfortable, the bathroom could have done with a little updating, but we were more than happy with it. It was always spotllessly cleaned and the view was fantastic.

We ate in the belle vue each evening, included in our all inclusive package. The food was varied and well presented. It we were staying two weeks it may have become a little monotonous, but we didn't get bored with it in our six days.

We ate lunch at the beach restaurant which was a great setting, and the food was excellent.

The main selling point of this hotel must be its staff. They are without exception, polite, helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt as though we were looked after very well, but without it being overpowering.

The grounds are outstanding, and well worth a walk around, beautifully maintained, and with lots of interesting plants and wildlife.

If you are feeling energetic there is plenty to do, and if you're not, no shortage of sun loungers relax on. We did find the usual habit of towels being left on sunbeds, but we always were able to find free sunbeds at various times of the day, so it wasn't a problem.

I would recommend this hotel for couples. Although there is plenty to occupy children, it's an awful long way for what is essentially a beach holiday. I would also advise anyone thinking of going to mauritius to try for an all inclusive option if possible. It was great to work your way through the cocktail menu without having to worry about how much it was costing!!!!!

Returned from 2 weeks inclusive of a wedding package, hotel deal all inclusive.

Very happy, this is a very well managed hotel, with an exceptional level of service quality in general. (only exception lunchtime service was usually slow but very polite)

The all inclusive aspect suprised me as i have never taken a package before, but included use of dinghys, water skiing and other recreational activities as well as meals and most drinks

The wedding co-ordination was fine for us , and they are well practised which was ok for us as we wanted "fuss free"

I travel a lot through work, and should express that for genuine staff attention to customer service this is the best i have been in anywhere.

Stayed at the Maritim as the final part of our honeymoon in Oct 2006 and was a little disappointed after the luxury and level of service of our South Africa small guesthouse accommodation.

Disappointment was mainly with our standard room - fairly small and not properly maintained. The bath did not drain properly and there was no bath plug so you could not have had a bath even if you wanted to. Definitely needed 'spruceing up'.

Resort itself was well laid out, pool was freezing and was usual charade of towels on sun loungers early and no bodies lying on them till hours later. The beach was nice and less crowded and the hawkers there are the politest ones I have ever met, didnt try any sort of coercion at all - no fun!

Food was ok, fairly average buffet fayre really, the cafe on the beach did nice lunches.

Take a wander around the grounds and see the ruins of a french arsenal, very pretty and noone else seemed to leave the beach so we had it to ourselves. I agree with previous comments about the giant tortoises being kept in too small an enclosure - there were far too many of them and it just didnt seem right really.

There was an average of about 3 weddings a day that seemed a tad like a conveyor belt, but those marrying seemed happy enough with that. According to the hotel at any one time there is more than 50 honeymooning couples staying at the maritim so for anyone assessing the mood of the resort, I would say def suitable for couples and not singles/families.

Overall the resort just felt 'packagy' and there was no real wow factor for me, but I do acknowledge that a large hotel will never be able to compete with smaller accommodation for service levels. I guess in large hotels you could be anywhere in the world and for me thats no longer enough on a holiday.
