Hotel The Bay Hotel Hotel 3 star
Allee Des Cocotiers La Preneuse Black River MU Black River, Mauritius
Amy Adejokun Section editor

From the outside, The Bay Hotel is nothing extraordinary to look at. You certainly don't expect to find such a charming interior. Despite being built in 2008, the hotel radiates youth and cleanliness, with the latest refurbishments dating to December 2011. The warm welcome will make you feel right at home here. While the site is pleasant, the facilities are rather small, particularly the swimming pool area. On the other hand, with only 16 guest rooms there's no need for acres of land!

    Location 3.01 /10

    The Bay Hotel is situated in the village of Flic en Flac, 45 minutes from Port Louis and an hour from Grand Baie. The airport is also about an hour away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The Bay Hotel has 16 guest rooms. The 3 superior rooms and the 2 suites have a sea view, as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. The 2 classic and 9 standard rooms, however, are not equipped with a balcony and afford a view of the back of the building, which resembles a badly maintained garden. All the guest rooms are harmoniously decorated, although the predominant colour changes according to category. The room keys all come with a large fish key ring - difficult to lose! In terms of amenities, all the essentials are there: flat-screen television, air-conditioning, refrigerator etc.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Bay Hotel has taken a chance with the minimalist Mediterranean-style decor, and it has to be said the gamble has paid off! You feel at ease from the moment you enter the lobby. One entire wall is covered in straw hats, while the plexiglass roof lets in plenty of natural light and shows off the exposed beams. Guests can borrow something to read from the small bookcase at the entrance during their stay.
    Outside, the swimming pool and the children's paddling pool are just next to the bar and restaurant, although it would have been nice if the pool was slightly bigger. A wooden sun lounge surrounds the pool, but there are no deckchairs. The few iron sunbeds are set to one side under two canvas parasols.

    The hotel does not have a spa, but it does offer massages! There is a small treatment room, run by an Austrian therapist, where classic massages are proposed la carte.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The main restaurant is just off to the side of the pool, facing the sea. The only protection is a thatched wooden roof, allowing a constant breeze to float through the restaurant. All three meals of the day are served here. Breakfast comes in the form of a buffet, but for lunch and dinner meals are served la carte. The menu is composed of Mauritian and international dishes, with a barbecue on Fridays. For the last Friday of the month, a spit-roast pig is served as a treat!

    Beach 7.20 /10

    There are two sets of steps leading to the sand; the hotel is lucky enough to situated beside the magnificent Flic en Flac beach, but on the La Preneuse bay side. While the former is considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, the latter is not very wide; the six plastic deckchairs are practically touching the water. Still, the sand is fine and the water is crystal clear, with shade provided by the canvas parasols. Water sports are available from an external company, so be prepared to pay additional charges.

    To know

    Guests can take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, while those who enjoy exploring can check out the list of excursions available, including diving with dolphins.
    There is a supermarket just a five-minute walk from the hotel.
