        Would recommend without hesitation”

        Accommodating staff, pleasant location, great location for exploring Mauritius

        In summary, stay here. The service offered is fantastic. Arrival and check in is easy using the phone provided to contact one of the owners directly, the room was fabulous and exactly as the pictures show, so don't worry that what you see won't be what you get. Breakfast provides a great variety and should suit most people. During our stay Christophe provided a marvellous daily guide on where to go, what to do, what not to do. A book of information is available also including contact details for attractions and if not, the hotel will find out. There is a shopping centre located a short walk away which houses a few good places to eat, numerous shops, a beach is close and boating/snorkelling trips depart from the bay as well. This hotel is a great place to base yourself for exploring the Black River area, including reaching Mauritius' highest point. As with all places in Mauritius, signposts somehow are always behind you, so to find Marlin Creek look out for the Blue sign on the wall near the Black river community hospital, or ask for directions to the Police Station. Book this place!

        The staff, the room and breakfast.

        Marlin Creek offers great value for money and guests are given five star treatment from the minute you arrive. We travelled the whole island and Marlin Creek is a great place to base yourself to enjoy the best part of Mauritius. It doesn't have the facilities of a fancy resort but it is perfect for those who do not feel they need to spend a fortune to enjoy themselves.

        The Anderson Family at The Marlin”

        The Marlin Creek is situated in a quieter part of Black River. The young couple who run it could not have been more helpful and friendly. They create a very relaxed ambience. We were happy with the accommodation of a bungalow + an additional room. Only irritation of concern was the number of mosquitoes we encountered there, mostly at night, but some also during day hours.

        Such a fantastic hotel in a very central location. It allowed us to see so much of the island. ”

        We can’t give enough praise for the hotel. The staff work with such enthusiasm and care about each guest that stays there. From the cleanliness and first impressions of the room, down to fantastic local knowledge of where to visit and the best places to eat. We can’t fault the place! While we were on the island we used some 5* hotels on the beach for their facilities and all agreed we were glad we’d saved the money and booked a small, independent hotel where you are more than just a number. Breakfast is all home baked goods with a great selection of teas and lovely coffee. The evening meals sounded lovely although we didn’t have the opportunity to have one. But most of all above everything the staff and owners were amazing. If you’re thinking of booking JUST DO IT! You won’t be disappointed. Hire a car though - it’s the easiest and most effective way of getting around and seeing the most.

        Awesome, will stay here again!”

        What a nice place... We had an awesome stay with personal interaction from owner, Amaury. Room was on first floor with balcony overlooking swimming pool and garden. Shower has no door so very intimate. We did not watch tv as it was in French, and we were too busy enjoying the island to bother with tv. Bought nice fish at local store and grilled it on weber that was available. Couple of good restaurants in close vicinity, but also had dinner (dry beef curry and chocolate crepes for dessert) at guesthouse that was well prepared and tasted really good. Very centrally located to explore Casela, Chamarel, Le Morne, Dolswim, etc. Staff is very friendly, rooms are spacious. There is a scooter for hire and bicycles we used for a ride, but recommend you have a rental car to explore the South. Wi-fi was on and off, but owner fixes it when prompted. There is a safe, aircon, fan, small fridge, kettle and hair drier in the room. Thanx to the owners, Amaury & Pascaline for a nice stay and special thank you to Cedric, Brenda and Deborah for making it extra special.

        big rooms

        the rooms are big. the hosts were extremely helpful with bookings and also recommendations on local eateries and activities. there is a supermarket within a 5-minute drive and 2 nice restaurants within 10-minute drive - il duck and la bonne chute. difficult to find the hotel but i now understand they have clear instructions on their website. only down sides are that the rooms are quite dark and we only ever got warm water (not hot).

        Cozy room, national park 30mins by bike”

        Room is spacious, clean, and has lots of traditional, wooden furniture which fit perfectly the environment. I liked the balcony over the pool. Advantage is that the visitors center of the nation park is around 30 mins by bike (peaceful road), which you can get for free. Tires of the bikes were all flat though, but the local staff pumped it up quickly. They are super polite and helpful anyway. Local beach is 5 mins by bike, supermarket too. Bike is actually pretty useful here.
