“Affordable Luxury, Great Service”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We stayed here for our first and only time in Mauritius and overall, had a great stay. The hospitality was brilliant and the rooms well appointed. We had the ocean view beach front room which is totally worth it and would highly recommend. The sound of waves waking you up in the morning through the verandah doors is something else which cannot be described! The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful at all times. Location with private section of beach, amazing. The only negative thing I could say about this place is that their taste standards for food really need to lift. In a country where the cuisine is so exquisite, their dinner and breakfast is extremely average.

My wife and I have just returned from 3 weeks at Merville Beach Hotel.
We have now stayed there, I think its now 7 times, and each time we are overwhelmed by the wonderful service and hospitality we received. The type of genuine, smiling, caring, friendly service that makes you want to return because you are treated so well.
Mutty Vikram and his staff at the front office go well beyond anything expected... And do whatever they can to please you.... Nothing is too much trouble, and all with a genuine smile. The hotel manager goes out of his way to make sure everything is to our satisfaction.... He is to be congratulated on getting it all together as he has done. The housekeeping staff also deserve a special mention as do the catering and dining room management and staff... The dining experience is so good... again, everyone goes out of their way to welcome you and make sure everything is as you wish.
Really ... We have nothing to complain about at all... The amenities, cleanliness, decor, ambience etc are more than adequate, probably 4 star in my estimation.... All in all we can recommend Merville Beach to anybody.... In fact some good friends of ours are just about to head off there this week, based on our recommendation.

Room Tip: We prefer the bungalows... Any of first three rows back facing the beach.

Being in the hospitality industry myself, I would say that those guys and girls over there have really impressed me, by the way the handle each guest individually and knowing the names of almost each of them, by their hard work and dedication and not only for the front liner but also the management who i met working on a Sunday morning.
I want to say THANK YOU to the whole team for taking so much care, I have not taken all the names of the persons i have been in contact with and who really made that each single moment of our stay was a great one,still here are some Vickram, Brinda, Iqbal, and Jamie ( for whom my 3 year old son has a crush for :) ) Bruno and Rama from the restaurant, Michaela, Faisal from the beach house, Mrs Natalie who took great care that the room was immaculately clean. From the start till the end every thong has been marvelous and i will definitely advised this resort to all our friends.
This resort definitely deserves two thumbs up.

We have just returned from our 8th visit to the Merville Beach which we first visited 20 years ago, and it was just like coming home. The staff are so friendly and do all they can to help you if you have any problems, which we didn't. Vikram was so helpful in getting us the room we wanted and nothing was too much trouble for him or the desk staff. Mr Rama, restaurant manager, as usual, looked after us so well we definitely did not want to come home. The rooms had been refurbished and were bright and cheerful and had a colour change since we last visited and the bed was so comfortable. The only complaint I had, which did annoy me during our second week, was the start of one or two people putting their towels on the loungers and not turning up until lunchtime, picking the two largest thatched umbrellas on the beach, although there was not a problem in finding loungers as there were always empty ones available. The Management do say clearly this is not to be done, but I think it needs to be reinforced. Other than that, Paradise. Must not forget the cheerful beach house staff, although we did not use the facilities on this occasion they were always smiling and helpful.

Room Tip: the thatched rooms are beautiful, especially if you get one in the row behind the boathouse, we alwa...

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would like to thank you for choosing Merville Beach for each of your visit to Mauritius.

The whole team and I appreciate your charming comments for which we feel really touched and motivated to even do better on your 9th visit.

We are glad to hear that the changes made in the rooms were to your likings and as a matter of fact we are also undergoing a soft refurbishment campaign throughout the public areas of the hotel.

We do appreciate your comments regarding the sun beds’ reservation which is definitely not authorized. Very concerned about the well-being of our guests, we shall definitely reinforce our policy as you kindly recommended.

Meanwhile, we very much look forward to welcoming you back to your Mauritian home.

Yours Sincerely,

Had a fantastic time in Mauritius and Merville Beach is a great hotel. Bit of a mix up with the room on the first night but they went out of their way to fix this the next day and ended up in our fabulous beach front deluxe room, Amazing view from the balcony and the room had just been refurbished. The room was very clean and serviced each day. The service in the restaurant was great and the food was delicious with different buffets each night. Friendly reception staff and fantastic bar staff with great cocktails and entertainment each night.

Our wedding was absolutely fantastic!! Thanks so much to Neha for all her organisation and to the rest of the team who made it such a wonderful day, the lovely cake, beautiful flowers, the great manicure, hair and makeup, the beautiful decorations and great location overlooking the ocean, wonderful ceremony, great photographer and fabulous dinner. Thanks to Tony, Neha, Brinda and everyone else who were involved in our wedding and made our day very special.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The location is great, the beach front is beautiful with lots of free watersports (thanks to the boathouse guys), only a short walk to central Grand Baie. A fabulous hotel, great wedding and fantastic holiday!!

This was my first trip to Mauritius and the island and the hotel did not disappoint! I would be confident in saying, its been the best holiday in years. The hotel was welcoming and the staff attentive and this was the case throughout the stay. The food for breakfast was good (especially the omelettes) and dinner provided variety and was also very good. I would recommend the The Beachhouse for the dolphin trip via speedboat and other activities they provide. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The hotel is easy distance from the Grand Baie shops and restaurants and the local taxi's provide exceptional value for money. To be honest it was hard to leave, but look forward to returning as soon as I can!

Spent 14 wonderful days at this hotel, the location is great with the beach on your doorstep. The staff are amazing, we received such a warm welcome from Vicram thank you. Stayed in the main hotel block, had a room overlooking the gorgeous beach. The food in the hotel was really good as we're the cocktails. Beach House staff were lovely with plenty free sports for you to try out. Highly recommend booking the speedboat trip out to the dolphins with the boat house, amazing experience being able to swim with them in the wild, great value for money at only £40 per person. Also try the water doughnuts, great fun!. Free Internet and phone calls home was a great perk. I loved this place and can't wait to return. Thanks guys, you all do an amazing job.
