Just had 14 nights at the Veranda and overall it was a pleasant stay. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are friendly. Both pools are good, as is the small private beach. The grounds are well kept and good to the eye.

Buffet breakfast was ok nothing to shout about. Staff slow to restock and clear tables.

Only had Dinner 3 times and was disappointed by choice, in fact I had the same 3 times. Well cooked but lacked any form of seasoning. Staff slow to clear tables. I was expecting complementary drink with dinner but had to pay.

The idea of a dress code is fine but unenforceable. People were in Dinner in shorts vests and flip flops. May be should word it as not beach/pool wear at any meal as there were people in Bikinis and towels at breakfast.

The evening entertainment /disco was poor, has to be the worst I have encountered!! The disco was aimed at the smallest group there French teenagers. This is an international hotel so the entertainment has to reflect that.

If you want a quiet time make sure you go when there are no French school kids. They spoilt our mid weekend. No parental control, SHOCKING.

If you expect a great night life and dinning in Grande Baie for get it. Its very quiet, a lot of restaurants close at 2100 or don't open on a night time. Street food on the beach and in the park is good at lunch time.

Make sure that you don't get a room near the road as at evening and weekends its very loud.

Room Tip: Not near the road that leads to the park/beach as its loud night and weekends

2 Weeks after my return in early November 2013, I booked my return to the Veranda for April 2014, that depicts my overall pleasure in the Veranda Hotel. I have stayed in other hotels previously which have been more expensive and with a more extensive evening menu but that does not mean the quality is available. The Veranda is easily the best value for money that I have stayed in. The cleanliness of the rooms and all the facilities are excellent. The staff are extremely friendly but more importantly, they are very helpful.
This hotel is ideally situated being only a 5 minute walk down the beachfront into Grand Baie. In the past I have been to Mauritius with my girlfriend, other friends and solo. The Veranda is ideal for any age group(s) with or without children.
I tend to go solo nowadays because I am a Big Game Fisherman but I found all of the other guests extremely friendly, probably because they were relaxed and also enjoying their stay (all but one man, but there is always one! so we all just avoided him)
I am a UK Publican/Restraunteur with over 35 years experience.

Room Tip: I can not comment on the spa as I did not use the facilities. I did not have breakfast as I left th...

I was pleasantly surprised with the facilities, service and atmosphere at Veranda Hotel Grande Baie. It has a lovely small beach and two pools. The staff are very friendly and were always ready to accommodate us and our 10 month old infant son. There was no shortage of staff wanting to hold and play with him, giving us a moment to ourselves at dinnertime. Although the buffet selection isn't extensive, the quality of the food was outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the Mauritian/Créole buffet. The WiFi coverage is great and we were able to access it from our poolside room. If you aren't fussed about miniature shampoos or bathrobes in your room, this is the hotel for you. Great value for money.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are great for WiFi access but can be a little noisier than the garden facing rooms

We have traveled a lot and have been to many nice hotels, but we have never felt more welcome than at Veranda Grand Baie. Especially for my girl friend, who cannot eat certain meals, the chef and his team made our stay simply perfect and memorable. The whole staff is simply amazing, thank you so much!!! We highly recommend this hotel.

Have just spent 10nights at the veranda grand bay including New Year's Eve . We found the hotel service to be excellent the staff can not do enough. The room was beautiful and cleaned every day with fresh sheets and towels. The hotel manager was both very visible and approachable at all times . We could not fault the quality of food only found the choice a little limited for our taste at times. We will be returning to this little gem sometime soon. The treatments in the spa were good value and excellent .

Room Tip: We had a garden view room which was peaceful and quiet

Dear Trip Advisor Member

Thank you so much for having taken the time to post your comments, knowing that you must have a very busy schedule, what more after your holiday break for one thing, having to catch up, and with being your own boss for another...

Hope that the weather in Manchester is cold enough for you to want to catch the next plane to Mauritius...!

The next beer will be on me....!!!!

All the very best

We were very satisfied with our overall experience at Veranda Grand Baie Hotel. The service was excellent, the food good and the nightly entertainment of high standard. The hotel is within easy walking distance of banks, shops etc. the only drawback is the swimming in the sea as the most you can do is to wade into the shallow surf no more than knee deep

Room Tip: Only a few are sea facing but that is not a issue as all rooms are in nice garden layout and fairly...
