Great Location . close to Grand Bay”
Large rooms, 1km from Grand Bay with private beach, own boathouse with paddle boat, canoe, snorkeling trip. One restaurant serving buffet and one bar serving bar bites/ pizza, etc. Swimming pool is small. White sand beach with spectacular view.
Great holiday ”
The Staff were fantastic, the WiFi was exceptionally good, beach beautiful. We absolutely loved it. Only thing I would say is we were half board which was good and bad, the food was really not great so we had to go out and explore the other restaurants in Grand Baie which there are some fantastic options right on the door step. The wine list is expensive and avoid the £37 Sauvgnon from Danie DeWet, we left it half in drunk,
What an amazing holiday we had at the Merville Beach. Lovely hotel in a great location rooms great had a room upgrade to a Deluxe Ocean View courtesy of Manager Tony .. Staff lovely and friendly hotel great food good selection have absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone .. Only been back home one day and have already recommended it to 4 families !! Free waterspouts were amazing just wish we had stayed longer .. Looking forward to going back again at Christmas ... First trip to Mauritius and would not stay in any other hotel than the Merville. Tony you run a fantastic ship !! Missing the place already
Fabulous MervilleMerville Hotel was a great choice and couldn't asked for anymore from the staff at the hotel. Service location and cleanliness were fab and nothing was too much trouble..Special mention to Faz at boathouse.Restaurant Management n staff and staff at reception...including Jamie.
Best staff attention I have witnessed for ages ”
From the moment we got there the staff could not do enough to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Who ever did the staff training didn't miss much. We had a beach front room (532) with a balcony and a great view of the beach/sea and gardens. The room was very clean with free water/coffee every day. As I had to keep a eye on work back home I was very pleased to find out that the Wifi was free and you were able to pick up a strong signal everywhere in resort including the beach.
About the hotel”
Good cottages with green/beautiful garden. Standard & siperior rooms in two blocks. Water sports like snorkelling/kayaking/paddle boat/Glass bottom boat ride over coral reefs/ scuba diving/speed boats/water skiing. Pool by the restaurant. The let down is menu choice and the food preparation. Recommend restaurants in Grand Baie or surrounding areas than dining at the hotel.
Fantastic location and facilities. The staff are the biggest feature of this hotel. Nothing is too much trouble in their efforts to ensure guests enjoy a great holiday. Krishna was particularly good in the restaurant and the boathouse crew. The rooms were basic and maybe a little tired but had everything we needed and were always kept spotlessly clean. Some noise in rooms overlooking the pool but what a fabulous view to wake up to! We were offered an alternative room but as the entertainment finishes at 11 chose to stay. The food in the hotel was very good, catering for food intolerances. We combined eating here with some of the local restaurants. Le Poivrier was excellent and next door to the hotel, as was Sauterelle in Grand Baie. Wine is expensive. This can cost more than the meal! Transport is excellent on the island. We walked or used local buses during the day and taxis at night. The trip to L’Isle de Deux Coco is recommended. A wonderful holiday with many happy memories.
Stayed at the Merville before and as before we were very please with the quality of the hotel and the were the staff greeted us. Clean room and beach. Good food wonderful atmosphere in the evening. For the price we cannot fault the hotel.
A really good choice!”
The hotel has one of the best beaches of the island. The rooms are quite simple and very clean. Our room was on the second floor with beach front. The balcony was very spacious and the view really nice. We have travelled around the island by renting a car, which isn’t so challenging as some people may say (mobile preload for navigation is highly recommended). The weather is generally much better in the north of the island, which is important to know. Another point for Merville and Grand Baie. Breakfast at the hotel was rich and of very good quality. Lunches at the beach bar were inconsistant in quality and could be prepared more tasty. For dinner you may visit downtown which is full of bars and restaurants (only 5-10 min by hotel taxi). Watersports, fitness and tennis curt was for free and another big plus. Further you’ve got a Orca dive center just within the beach area. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Generally you’ll get more than three stars for the price.
Merville is Perfect for family holiday”
We had a short but perfect holiday at Merville Beach Resort. The facilities are great- they have a restaurant with different themes dinner each day (Thursday is Mauritius dance). We went for breakfast included package and hotel offered enough options for us and kids. Generally they have good European cuisine, local food must be tried outside. The menu for lunch is small but they also have pizzas and nuggets available on asking. My 5 year and 8 year were taken care of by the Kids Club staff while I went to explore sea and buy gifts from nearby market (15 minutes walk). Since we spend most of the time outdoor exploring the sea and ambiance, we dint spend too much on room and went for sea facing option (Superior Room for two adults and 2 kids). We could enjoy wonderful sunset from our veranda / lawn facing the beach (30 meters away).
Best hotel where we have been”
This was our first trip to Mauritius after 5 holidays in Thailand. Original plan was to spend one week in Merville Beach Hotel and other week in Flic En Flac Villa Carolines. Week in Merville hotel was fantastic and when we went to Villa Carolines it was catastrofic. We stayed there for two night and luckily we were able to get room from Merville hotel for remaining 5 days and we jumped to taxi and drove back to hotel where service is excellent, all the places are clean, best beach in Mauritius (clean, water is crystal clear, can walk on the beach with bare foot without pieces of coral pieces, no stones in swimming area). We lost 1400 € by changing hotel back to Merville hotel because didn't get money back from Villa Carolines but it was totally worth it (didn't even expect to get any money back because this was our own choice). When we travelled 24 hours to get on your holiday then we expect luxury and that what Merville hotel provided to us! Thanks for everything and hopely we will see soon :-)
Amazing staff. Well-trained, efficient and very nice. The location is also great, near the centre of Grand Baie, with all its restaurants and shops. The only thing we were unhappy about was taxi service during one of the trips arranged by the hotel. The driver left us at the destination and despite agreed 40minutes till pick-up, he would not show up for more than one hour without notice. As we were with a small baby, we could not wait any longer and were forced to take a different taxi at additional cost. Despite this, upon arrival at the hotel , the original driver angrily demanded the full amount for the trip, instead of apologizing for leaving us stranded.
We arrived at the hotel very late on the first night and were welcomed with a cool towel and a drink. When we got to our room there was a bottle of bubbly and a large bowl of fresh fruit waiting for us, compliments of the hotel. Soon after, a porter arrived with two plates of meat and salad, which was a nice surprise and very welcome. We booked a deluxe room on the beachfront. Our first impression was that the room was a good size, if a little dated, but very clean. We arrived too late to appreciate the view but when we woke up in the morning we couldn't believe the fantastic view over the beachfront from our balcony. It must have been one of the best located rooms in the hotel, (room no. 549), and it was truly breathtaking. The beach was clean white sand and the sea reflected some amazing colours. Most of the water sport activities were free, including water-skiing, snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding. All meals were served buffet style. There was a great choice for breakfast and each evening the meal was themed, (Mauritian, Chinese, Indian, European), and again there was plenty to choose from. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The entertainment was mixed, but generally quite good, particularly the Mauritian dancing and the Jazz/Blues band. The general manager, Tony, introduced himself to us, and it was obvious he cared about providing excellent service; we saw him around the hotel quite frequently, and he was always checking with the guests to ensure they were enjoying themselves. We did feel that the bar drinks were quite expensive and we didn't participate in any of the spa services, as these were also expensive and were considerably cheaper along the road from the hotel. All in all we had an excellent time at the hotel and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
Most wonderful experience of my life. ”
22-29 June 2015 It was the most wonderful and Amazing experience, we felt so welcome when we arrived and it was a late arrival. They prepared the most delicious food for us. Our room was so beautiful and had a great view. The themed food every night and breakfast every morning was so good, we loved the shows that they offered, I really enjoyed screaming at the top of my lungs as I cheered, it was a lot of fun dancing with the wonderful dancers. I also have to applaud the band and everyone who sang with every show, they have the most beautiful voices. They have really fun activities, I LOVED swimming with the dolphins, it's such a beautiful feeling and something you can't explain, you have to experience it for yourself. The staff and entertainment group were absolutely FANTASTIC , I have never in my life met such humble people, they were sooooo nice and made our holiday even so much harder to forget. It was so nice that most of the staff members remembered us everyday, room 556 (^^,) I LOVE Merville beach and I am so glad that we chose them, it was beyond our expectations, I would go back any day and I would highly recommend them to anyone. I was and am so sad to be back home, I want the amazing feeling that Merville beach and all the staff gave me to last forever. I am so happy that I can be one of those people who can now also say that they are very underrated, I really wish that you could rate them out of 10, because I would have given them an 11 out of 10. I could not complain about anything, In my eyes everything was so perfect, it was just a wonderful experience. We would just like to thank everyone at Merville Beach for making our holiday so special and so memorable. We will definitely visit you again. We rate you 5 STARS. Room 556 : Adriaan & Nicole Badenhorst.

A wonderful holiday!”
What an amazing hotel with incredibly friendly staff, spacious rooms and awesome facilities. We so enjoyed our stay at this gem! We had a superior lux sea facing room and couldn't have wished for anything more! It was extremely comfortable and every available sea opportunity existed to enhance our already awesome Mauritian experience! I so recommend the Merville. It is a 20 minute stroll from Grand Baie or if you wish, a short bus ride (12 MUR) which passes the hotel every 10 or so minutes. The Merville is currently being upgraded room for room, and I can only imagine how superb of a hotel it will be then. I long to return. Wonderful!
stayed here for four nights..Loved every part of my stay. The rooms are big and comfortable and the location is one of the best on the island!! Add to this, a courteous staff ever willing to help you. Great stay
Very good location and nice staff”
Good familly hotel. Good hotels features: beach club with beach activities, swimming pool and a tennis court. Great breakfast: english style. Big and clean room. We had a deluxe room with seaview and big private balcony with sunbeds. Staff very helpfull and friendly. They help me organize a birthday diner (lobster and birthday cake)
Excellent hotel with wonderful welcoming”
We decided to select a hotel in the Northern part of the island (which notably enjoys a better weather than the South) and Merville fulfilled totally our expectations (web presentation), I would say it has even exceeded these as we were left with no words at seeing it for the first time! There is everything one's need for a perfect relax and stay, great choice of rooms, food, drinks, watersports and Spa. We as honeymooners received a free-dinner as a gift from the hotel. Lovely!
Great atmosphere and service”
We stayed her from the 25th to the 30 th September 2012. Had an absolute blast at the hotel. The staff are very friendly and professional and went out of their way to make our stay a great one. from the check in to the check out we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The beach is one of the better beaches in Grand baie. To Josea, Fabrice, Khedoo and Sheiroze...thanks for the great time. Mr and Mrs Naidu definately recommend this hotel to anyone planning a trip to Grand Baie.
