As you turn down the quiet lane the chic charm of this small boutique hotel greets you. Backed by the serene turquoise sea, The Bay is a welcomed escape from the large resort hotels found throughout the rest of the island. The hotel provided us with a good size bedroom with chic decor and nice comfy bed, whilst the restaurant...

We had a wonderful weekend staying here while on business in Mauritius. The hotel has such a relaxed feel and the staff were very helpful. The setting is idyllic and we ate all our meals in the restaurant overlooking the beautiful beach.

What a wonderful stay we had, though the horel was difficult to find. This is one dream of a hotel. Tidy clean, modern. We had room 6 on the ground floor, with a little garden opening onto the pool and with the seaview beyond. The dining room and lounge are just above the strip of beach. Different kinds of seating...

With only 18 rooms it's dangerous to write a five star review in case this secret small hotel becomes impossible to get into. But if you're looking for a boutique style hotel right on the beach with great sunsets, super food and cocktails and welcoming, helpful staff then this is hard to beat. Located near Tamarind it's easy to get...

Hidden away from main road, on quiet residential area. Hotel is small in size; rooms are also small sized, but functional. Fantastic location, on the beach. Best for watching sunset. Great restaurant, sea facing. Nice pool. Good staff. Cycles available for hire on site.

It's a bit remote, yet nicely displayed. Once you get there, you can appreciate one of the greatest places in this area. The rooms: clean, the reception: helpful beyond expectations. And the breakfast: finger licking good. But nothing beats the location, which is just mind blowing.

The hotel had very good restaurant with living music Friday and Saturday. Perfect view to see sunset from outdoor sofas and other nice places to sit. Friendly staff. But best rooms in front viewing the sea, but expensive.

This hotel with restaurant is very nicely located on a beach in Black River. The staff was very friendly and helpful with arranging trips and giving recommendations. My room was not extremely big, but clean. The food at the restaurant was excellent. When staying at this hotel, I can recommend to go for half pension package (including breakfast and dinner)....

Room was average with a clean bathroom. Dinner is very good but not lot of varieties on the menu. Excellent view but the pool was not clean and the sea seems part of a port or so, so u can't swim freely. I didn't like the breakfast, i find that it was poor, skipped all the following days and took...

The Bay Hotel is a charming boutique hotel right on the beach in Black River on the West Coast of Mauritius. It's quaint & pretty with a great outdoor restaurant next to a sparkling pool !
