“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile


We are a honeymoon couple and booked an all inclusive suite which we would suggest was definitely top value for money.

We enjoyed the friendliness of ALL staff especially Jay and Dave (VIP Beach), Kumar from La Maree and of course our 2 butlers Sanjiv and Harish.

There's plenty to do if you like to keep busy or if you just want to do nothing then the hotel offers a very relaxed atmosphere.

Stayed July 2014

We had a fabulous holiday at a wonderful location with very attentive staff. Unforgettable. We also enjoyed a Magic Moment on the beach. We had our personalised menu, our own waiting staff and our own duo musicians. Our family all loved the many watersports on offer. We would highly recommend this hotel.

We booked our holiday in the Maritim with family to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and re new our vows. We could not have been looked after any better: our rooms were fabulous with wonderful views of the beautiful gardens and beach. Food was excellent in all the restaurants and the spa was amazing. What made our holiday exceptional was the wonderful staff: from the housekeeping, the bar and restaurant staff, sports coaches, management and communications staff, everyone made such a genuine effort to make our holiday extra special. The wedding coordinator Madhavi could not have done any more for us, she made sure that we will remember our special day for ever; thank you all.

I stayed here quite a while ago but the hotel is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. We stayed on an all inclusive basis and the food was excellent. Plenty to do around the hotel and the spa is great. Would recommend :)

We stayed at maritim for two weeks in July, on all inclusive.
The room was very spacious and had a nice view over the beach and the ocean. We didn't spend that much time in the room, as there's so much to enjoy within the resort. We tried water ski and pedal boats, which were free; and also horse riding and parasailing, which were reasonably priced. The spa centre was very well decorated and relaxing. When we went to use the sauna and jacuzzi, surprisingly there was no one else. I had a massage and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also spent a lot time in the bar next to the pool. There's a constant supply of drinks and snacks. Food in general was pretty good. The main restaurant changes menu every day; and there's always a wide range to choose from. The beach restaurant has a lovely atmosphere during the day and an even better one in the evening, when live music accompanies candlelight.
Our highlight of the holiday was our wedding day. We had a simple ceremony on the beach. The wedding planner was very helpful, taking care of everything from music to decorations. The band was our favorite part of the ceremony. Then we had a dinner at the french restaurant within the resort. It's got a very pretty garden and river in front it. The food was about the best I have had for a long time. All the staff were very nice and I think most of our guests were happy with the whole package. We certainly feel that Maritim had given us a wedding day that's beyond our expectation.
Over our entire stay, there are only two negatives. First, the hotel's taxi fares are about double the price from outside. Of course you can just book a taxi from elsewhere in advance. Second, wifi is extremely slow, and sometimes non existent at all, in rooms and in the restaurants.

We have just returned from our second wonderful holiday at the Maritim - 2 weeks in paradise! We travelled as a family with 2 boys aged 15 and 12. The Maritim is everything we could want from a holiday and more. We were greeted by friendly staff, cool towels, refreshing cocktails and the most amazing view of the bay. Immediately we felt relaxed and welcome. The hotel is impeccably clean, the gardens are immaculate and the rooms are cool and spacious. We chose interconnecting rooms which gave us copious space, and privacy. We were on the ground floor near to the VIP beach and loved this location as it was so convenient for restaurants and the beach. Waking to the palm trees waving in the breeze and the sun glinting on the just meters from our patio is fabulous. The boys (and adults) were kept occupied with a constant range of activities from snorkelling, kayaking, sailing and waterskiing in the sea and the on site river to football, tennis, baseball and boules on the land (all part of the all inclusive package) to name just a few. Swinging on the 'Tarzan' trees, hopping across the waterfalls, exploring the ruins and feeding the giant tortoises were all popular activities with us. We were waited on hand, foot and finger by the amazing beach staff as we lazed in the sun or watched the beautiful sunsets. Thank you so much Jay and Dave! It's well worth treating yourself to a massage or treatment at the beautiful spa or beachside spa cabin, being massaged to the sound of birds and waves was so relaxing! The food is fabulous. There is so much choice on the all inclusive menu that there is no need to have the same thing twice - although as it's all so delicious you may want to. The buffet allowed the boys to pick the things they really wanted and encouraged them to try something new from time to time. There are a la carte restaurants at extra cost if you would like to try something more. We had brunch at the Mon Desire as part of our package - that was well worth it - the view from the terrace is amazing and the food was excellent. The hotel is so lovely and offers so much to do that it would be easy to stay put - many people seemed to do just that. We like to see a little of the country we're visiting. Swimming with dolphins was a definite highlight of the holiday. Although it is expensive, viewing the beauty of the island by helicopter is something we'll never forget. If you enjoy haggling for bargains the market in Port Louis is a must and the Hindu temple even interested the boys. This hotel is a little remote so trips out do take time - 45 - 90 minutes by car to most places. Lots of sight seeing can be done by hiring a car, taxi or tour guide for the day and planning a route. The hotel is on a huge site and it is easy to walk through the beautiful gardens or along the river hardly seeing anyone else, but there isn't much in walking distance outside the hotel gates. The staff are the thing that makes the Maritim so special. There are so many wonderful people there that all worked so hard to give us an amazing holiday - nothing was too much trouble. I would love to mention everyone, but there are a few people I must give special mention to - the whole guest communication team was amazing, Joannah, Kavita and Auralie made us feel our comfort was the most important thing in the world and nothing was too much trouble. Dave in reception kept everything running like clock work. Bradley and Steven in the Sports Kiosk kept even our over active 12 year old fully occupied and always had a smile. Devon, Ajay, Vimla and Veeren in the Belle Vue restaurant were always there to meet our every need with a bright smile and a flowing wine bottle! Our particular thanks go to Dave and Jay in the beach service - life without a constant flow of cold beer, cocktails, fresh towels and delicious snacks just isn't the same! They really made our holiday and we can't wait to see them again. Our only criticism of this hotel is that it's set the bar so high it's very difficult to find another holiday to come close to this - I can fully see why some people have been returning again and again for 20 years!

Room Tip: All rooms have sea views, interconnecting rooms allow more space (and a second bathroom) for familie...

Without doing too much research booked into the Maritim - hotel was fantastic in all aspects. Beautiful setting on beach in beautiful gardens that are all meticulously maintained. From the very moment we arrived the staff were exceptional - Waseem and Abhishek on the front door, all the butlers Harish, Sanjiv, Styven and Reaz, the many Ashvin's in the restaurants and at the Quarter Deck, Tessa at the games hut and Dave and Jay the stars of the VIP beach to name but a few treated us brilliantly. Our children were looked after exceptionally by everyone and nothing was too much trouble - the friendliest people we've ever met by some distance. Suite was very comfortable and cleaned twice a day. Food in all the restaurants was fantastic - can honestly say in 11 days we didn't eat a single thing that wasn't exceptional. Upgrade to VIP package is well worth it. Didn't venture out of hotel grounds as there was no need - brilliant water sports, lovely pool and the Ocean. Perfect weather at this time of year and the right bit of the island too - South can be wetter we gather. Already looking at returning next year.
