“big rooms and helpful hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2012

The rooms are very big. The hosts were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and activities bookings. Located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance to the dolphin watching and deep sea fishing departure jetties. Within 5-minutes drive to a big supermarket and 10-minutes drive to 2 nice restaurants - Il Duck and Le Bonne Chute. Only downsides are the rooms are slightly dark and the water were only warm, not hot.

I travel with a team of colleagues to Mauritius on a regular basis and have been staying at Marlin Creek on these trips for the last 3 years. Amaury Christophe Pascaline and Ingrid provide excellent friendly service on a consistent basis. Whether you are traveling for business or pleasure I can recommend Marlin Creek. The rooms are large and comfortable with air conditioning and a ceiling fan. The beds are high quality and comfortable to sleep on.

Breakfast is continental style and healthy as well as very tasty. There are a number of restaurants in walking distance and the area is safe to walk at night. Pascaline runs a separate dinner service for guests with booking for dinner by 10am in the morning. Her cooking is traditional Mauritian Creole style and is exceptional. The bar at the pool opens for evening drinks and sundowners and offers a range of cocktails. Amaury makes a ginger and a vanilla flavored Mauritian rum which is a must.

For the non-resort based holiday or for the business person Marlin Creek is highly commended.

We spent 8 nights in Marlin Creek residence and we had a really relaxing holiday.
The owners are very nice and every day they gave us interesting suggestions about places we wanted to visit.

The breakfast was good and rooms are well furnished and spacious.

The garden is great with a large variety of tropical plants.

We suggest this place

Me and my wife stayed for 10 days when we had only planned initially for 3 or 4.
The family owned hotel is managed to perfection by the twin brothers Cristopher and Amaury, and their lovely wifes, Ingrid and Pascaline, Each one with their own task in the business, but with one goal in common; to make your stay as pleasant as possible. in some cases going beyond their duties, like driving us to local restaurants (as we did not hire a car) and picking us up, with a smile on their face.
The rooms are spacious, the bed is comfortable, the garden and pool area is cozy and well maintained, as in a 5 star hotel, and the pool side bar is always a fun place to be in the afternoons to chat with other guests or just have a beer, always well attended.
The sea is close by, although it is not a paradise beach you may imagine, but more docks for sailing boats or local fishing expeditions.
A GREAT value for your money.
We really appreciate how well they treated us.
A perfect alternative to the typical all included resort, if you are not into that type of gettaway.
Riviere Noir is a great for deep sea fisiing or coral fishing (Amaury is an expert in the area and runs his own boat for hire for fishing and it isperfectly catered by his wife and excellent cook Pascaline) and well situated to Le Morne,Port Louis and the north area.
Some advice: Taxi drivers rip you off...Try public transportation, its fun and a quick way to move around if you don´t want to rent a car.

I loved the great, warm feeling given by the owner, Amori and the manager, both are fantastic persons, so nice, helpful and warm. Everything was great: the room, very tastefully decorated, you feel really good in there, the awesome breakfast, the lovely pool and gardens...it would be the perfect place if there was not a big problem: the place is surrounded by stray dogs and I understand they can't do much about it! So, they bark a lot ( almost all day) and when you want to enjoy your terrace, well;, it's a bit of a problem... Thanks God, I didn't hear them at night. But it's a let down as, when you are on vacations, you want (and need! ) calm. So this place would be perfect if it was quiet. It's a pity because that's the only default but a big one. I really enjoyed my stay there except for that point.

We had great time here! We have been welcomed by Amari who showed us everything and being more than helpfull during our stay, he is also great barman in the evening and you should not miss delicious dinner made by his wife. I recommend this residence to everybody and hope to have an opportunity to come back soon!
