Went there to celebrate my sister’s birthday during the weekend.. it was such a bad experience.. to begin with, we reached there at around 15h15 but it they took more than an hour to complete the formalities as such we were able to access the room at around 16h30.. we started walking to the room when suddenly the lady realised that she forgot to put tags on our bags on which it was supposed to write our room numbers.. so we had to go back to the reception to complete this formality.. by the time we walked to the bar for tea time, it was already 16h45 and they informed us that we have only 5 mins to order something to eat… we ordered chicken burger which was supposed to be chicken patty but what we got was those in packets which are sold in supermarkets.. and they took almost an hour to bring the burgers..when we complained about the burger, we were told that chicken patty was over so instead of informing us they gave us fried burgers.. the worst part was that i made a cake for my sister which i requested them to put in the fridge as soon as we reached the hotel.. i called at the restaurant and and requested them to bring the cake in our room.. after waiting for an hour, i called at the reception and told them that i will be coming to take the cake as it was already late.. after dinner when i bought the cake in the room i was surprised to see that the cake was collapsing as the cream was melting.. the cake was not put in the fridge.. had they told me that they won’t be able to put it in the fridge i would have taken it to an airconditioned room.. you people don’t know how much effort one takes to bake a cake… this completely ruined the surprise party.. also we negotiated to have a small birthday cake to be served at the restaurant during the dinner on Saturday but to our surprise they did not make any arrangements and instead, we they were about to bring the cake which i brought from home.. went to other hotels to celebrate birthdays and they always made it special.. this was the only hotel in which nothing was done to make the birthday special.. instead they only ruined it moreover, when we went for dinner, the food was almost over but nobody bothered to cook some more food.. pasta was over so they suggested to take rice which would not at all suit the food we were eating.. the variety of food was limited.. there was only two type of deserts We also spotted mosquitoes on the deserts while going for lunch on Sunday.. so unhygienic for a five star hotel Cherry on the cake was the alarm which started to ring on sunday at 6am.. went there to relax, not to wake up early to have a day same as the usual.. This stay was such a great disappointment.. i personally do not recommend this hotel to anyone.. services provided by a 3-star hotel is by far much better than that in this “so called” five star hotel.. it’s not worth the price at all

We were there this weekend for a birthday and our experience was not good. We entered thr hotel at around 3.15 but it took us at least one good hour to complete check in formalities and we had our home baked cake which had to be kept in fridge. We gave them the cake witj utmost care trusting they would keep the cake as requested. By the time we went to our room and settled the tea time was almost over. So we hurried to the resto and ordered burgers and drinks. We had to go after them to see where was our food n drinks. Finally after some 20 min we got our drinks but still no food. On asking them why they are taking so long they said it was taking time since we were a large group and therefore it was time consuming. Finally after more than 1 hr of wait we got our burgers and to our surprise it was only a bun with a big chicken nuggets. We complained about it and the responsible person told us that the burger patty was over therefore they gave us this instead. Around 20.30 we wanted to do our cake cutting since we planned a surprise in the room. We called to ask fr our cake but we waited for more than 30 min still the cake didnt come. We had no choice than go dinner since restaurants close at 22.00. The food range was limited and some was over and they did nt replenish it. We had to eat substitutes lik instead of tagliatelle which was over we got macaroni. Around 21.45 someone came n told us the restaurant will close in 15 min so if we have to take anything, we should go now. So we left to take our dessert and a friend who was eating left his food to take the dessert. When we came back his plate with food was gone and all he was left with was dessert. The hotel told us they will give us a cake after dinner we were waiting for the cake they were supposed to give instead they came with our cake which we brought from home. We told them that no this cake was supposed to be cut in the room n we were waiting for the cake they would offer. They said they did not have any cake order so tomorrow we will get thr cake after lunch. We took our cake with us and headed to the room.There to our surprise we found that the cake was not in the fridge as requested and our cake was broken. We were disapointed. We called the receptiom to complain they said the cake was just removed from the fridge.The cake was not chilled at all. Our surprise was ruined and everyones mood was off. Around 23.00 we went to the bar and there the responsible said the bar was closed. We had to literally beg for 2 drinks. Later we found out that the bar closes at 23.30. We were more upset. We came to our room and slept. The next morning an alarm broke waking all of us up. We went to complain for our bad stay and they offered us a late check out though everything wasclosed and they gave us a cake which was already promised the night before. We were very much disapointed since we came with family and friends and we had sych a poor service. However the place is very nice and beautiful and staffs are friendly. The hotel was understaffed which led to poor service and everything was very slow even at restaurants to serve ourselves. Some food was tasty even if there was a poor selection. But the purpose for which we went to the hotel was a total disapointment.

My wife and I were on a ten-week trip, taking in 11 different countries, and this was the second last stop for us. We had planned this as a week of relaxation, to help us wind-down before travelling home via Dubai and a three day stop there. We really couldn’t have picked a better place for chilling out than Maritim Resort & Spa. It had everything we wanted in a resort, with lots to do on the complex, which I’ll cover in this review, plus great staff, great food in a variety of restaurants, and a wonderful pool area. The grounds are absolutely massive and encompass stables, where you can book a variety of horse riding activities, ranging from beginner level (that was me) to experienced riders who can ride unaccompanied. At the stables area, you can also see several huge turtles which are many years old. There is also a Dive Centre, with a range of diving options available. In addition, there is a Spa offering a variety of treatments. In addition, you can look to book onto one of the offsite trips that are available on Mauritius. My wife and I elected to go on the catamaran trip to Ile Aux Cerfs and I also went on the Walk With Lions trip, which I’ll review separately. The food was excellent and we ate in four of the restaurants on the complex. Those were the Belle Vue buffet restaurant, where we also had lunch and breakfast every day, Le Banyan Asian fusion restaurant, La Maree beach restaurant and Les Filaos beach barbeque. For the latter three of those, booking in advance was required, though that is easliy done at Reception. The two pools are interconnected so you can swim from one through to the other, under the bridge leading to the Quarter Deck Bar. One of the pools has a swim-up bar, with a little bell you can ring so that one of the waiters will come around from the bar and take your order. Sitting at that area, enjoying an afternoon cocktail, was one of our favourite parts of the day. All in all, I had no hesitation on rating Maritim at Five Stars, as we found nothing to fault on the complex. The staff were all excellent and friendly, especially those in the Quarter Deck Bar, where afternoon tea is served from 3:30pm and they have a ‘Happy Hour’ from 5:00 – 7:00pm. I will upload photos to show as many of the areas and features as I can, especially the amazing sunsets which varied every night, depending on cloud formations.

My partner (from UK) and I (Mauritian) are one of the few people lucky enough to be in Mauritius during this time of Covid 19... But my partner and his parents has been visiting the Maritim well over a decade. In the beginning of 2020, the hotel was closed for renovations... so when we had the opportunity to come and view the New changes by spending one night there on the 05th of January 2021, even though the hotel is not fully re-opened, we were so pleased to enter the hotel and find the same fantastic, warm and friendly members of staff that had looked after us in the past years. The changes are very modern but still keeping the heart of the wonderful hotel with such amazing views. The resident management (Antje) gave us room 212 to try (being one of the newly renovated rooms)... WOW!!!! Could not fault anything in room 212. Overall we highly recommend anyone to book this hotel with these fantastic new upgrades. Make a superb mauritian holiday! Once again thank you to all the team that looked after us during that stay. Christian and Laurence.
