I stayed in The Bay for three nights. My overall experience was very good. The Hotel is located towards the south of Mauritius. The location itself was very calm and less crowded. It provides pick up and drop from the airport at a very reasonable cost. The Bay is about an hour (or 90 mins in traffic) away from the... More

Amazing views, the best in the West! Fred and Aurelie offer amazing, homely service and the staff are very hospitable, including the Amazing Yavin. Great place for breakfast, lunch, dinner and night caps. Love the food, the pool kept my kids happy all day long and the sunset is unbeatable. Will always recommend the Bay, the memories are literally unforgettable... More

For a place that has all the potential and the view for the best boutique hotel in Maurituis, it falls sadly short in all other areas. The attention to detail is lacking in the rooms, the service, the food and the appearance. Paying a high price, we don't see the value and certain areas are in desperate need of attention.

A charming and cosy little hotel among dozens of huge resorts on the island. Whether it's breakfast, lunch or dinner the food is great, and comes with a perfect view as well! The atmosphere is lovely. This place is highly recommended!

A very pleasant small hotel with only 16 rooms. The staff is superb in their helpfulness. The only thing we would have changed is the breakfast that comes in two a la carte options. We would have liked to pick the items according to our own preferences. Of course you don't have to eat all that is put in front... More

We stayed there for 7 nights in a superior room. The hotel is located at La Preneuse in the district of Black River (South of Flic en Flac on the West coast). It's a boutique hotel with direct access to the beach so nothing comparable to larger resorts (i.e. better). Our room was located on the first floor with a... More

I have been now 3 times to this nice small hotel in Black River. All 3 times I have had a great experience. The rooms are not big, but that doesnt matter when you are outside all day watching the beautiful ocean. Especially the sundown is one of the best I have experienced. Their food is very good.
