“loved the privacy of this hotel”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

My sister and I had a really nice stay at Verandah in July2011 and a great time in Mauritius. The staff were most welcoming,esp the night entertainment crew, Clive, Patricia and others like barman Bob - pity the entertainment ended early as us Capetonians love to party into the night! the location is perfect, providing good swimming and watersport opportunities, no noisy crowds around you and nice quiet spaces to relax! My only objection would be the food which was very much the same every day - more thought should go into providing variation. The room was suited to our needs and very spacious. I will defintely return to Mauritius and perhaps the same hotel as well.

I just recently returned from the Veranda Grand Baie and the meals were most dissapointing. Breakfast is the same every day , eggs and potatoes with a small variation with sausage on some days. Dinner was not at all child friendly , although staff did try their best to make alternatives for the kids at no extra charge if you ask. The main course of dinners were tastless.
The evening entertainment was pretty boring , with the exception of one day - the Saga dance. Facilities were great and clean , but I would not return based on the food alone.
We tried our best to eat out as far as possible. - Areshna (South Africa)

Late arrival Friday 22nd April very well attended to. Meal / snack otherwise in standard room. No wardrobe space - 7 days not a problem for the male! Room tidy and clean every day. Staff excellent all round, polite helpful "a holiday in its own". This was or second trip to the "group of hotels". Food not much variation, quite bland and asked for some condiments to "spice" it up a bit...didn't have any. Spoke to to fellow residents all of the same opinion. By Tuesday what a turn around things kicked up 10 gears in the restaurant side.. no more doubts wonderful!! Hotel has excellent pools sea side a step away small beach. Lots of free water-sports including a glass bottom boat trip +- 1/2 hr trip to the reef to view the reef and fish. Bring your snorkel etc. Spent an "eternity" with the fish and the reef..not bad for a 4 x bypass patient. The hotel is with walking distance +- 20 mins from Grand Baie center. 1st visit we walked along the beach which was quicker but now it was blocked off due to the construction of a new waterfront . Would we go back to the hotel?? Yes we are already booking for next year. PS try and take the public transport bus to the gardens its not expensive and you see more of the island and its very friendly people. Thank you Mauritius and its wonderful people. 5****

Room Tip: Maybe upgrade from standard

Very comfortable and great value. The staff are fantastic. The easy proximity of Grand Baie town is a huge bonus as you are not locked in to the resort.

Room Tip: If you like the hustle and bustle of a resort hotel ask for a room at the poolside. If not there are...

After reading all the glowing reviews of the Veranda Grande Baie we expected the best--although the hotel is lovely and the service can be average to good, we probably would not have chosen the Veranda again. Mauritius is a long trip for most anyone-from the UK a 12 hour flight with kids. If you travel that far you'll want the best and this is a pretty hotel, but with hardly any beach--the whole point of Mauriitus and the pools average. There is too much oil used in the food as well as being too French-focused. The entertainment a few nights was great-we loved the Mauritian dance show. One of the water aerobics teacher was great, the other disappointing. the kids club was a big disappointment-often they were watching tv. We had thought there would be more English speakers-everyone was French which was perhaps our fault for going in the summer holidays. I would dish out more next time to go to one of the bigger/more luxurious resorts though we had a nice time and wouldn't say it was a disaster just adisappointing. Would recommend visiting La Vanille to see the turtles and crocodiles and the beach at Mon Choisy was excellent.

Room Tip: rooms fine-redone so look fresh

We recently went to Veranda Grand Baie. We had a great time. The staff was great and the rooms were lovely and spacious. Breakfast and dinner were great and we really enjoyed it. Beautifull pool and lovely gardens.

The only negative thing was that we only got 2 sachets of coffee in our room and thereafter you have to pay for it. The sachets is Rs90 per sachet, that works out to R22.50 (S.A. RAND) a sachet. I personally think that is ridiculous.

The bus service in Maurituis is great. The drivers is extremely helpfull. On the other hand the taxi's is very expensive and the drivers are very rude when you do not want to use their services.

Not far from the hotel there is a very nice convenience store store (Store 2000) where we bought coffee and cooldrinks. The hotel charges Rs110 (R27.50 S.A.RAND) for a 200ML coke and we paid Rs18 (R4.50 S.A. RAND) for a 500ML coke at the store, now that is value for your money.

Overall we had a pleasant time.

A pleasant welcome and a refreshing cocktail on our arrival. Room was small but comfortable. Food, whilst not always providing a great variety, was sufficient and tasty. Drinks were expensive though and we did most of our drinking at local bars in the Grand Baie area. Pity really as the hotel had some great evening entertainment but we didn't hang around long enough to enjoy it. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here again
