What's Hot

  • Within walking distance to Grand Baie, the starting point for many cruises and excursions as well as shopping, restaurants and bars
  • Every room in the hotel (except the honeymoon suite) accommodates children
  • Great vibey atmosphere with an in-house night club and resident band as well as a huge selection of sports and activities
  • Double the dining choice with the option to experience the facilities of sister hotel Canonnier Beachcomber

What's Not

  • People looking for a quiet and tranquil holiday on a remote beach will likely find this resort just too active and busy - rather head to a more tranquil resort away from Grand Baie
  • The beach is quite small and you're not likely to encounter the crystal-clear water you'll find on beaches in other parts of the island
Mauricia Beachcomber

From a fishing village a few decades ago, Grand Baie has turned into the most fashionable seaside resort on the island with numerous restaurants, lively cafes and nightclubs, not to mention loads of traditional and colourful shops. Mauricia is within walking distance of this hub, from where it’s also easy to organise excursions if you want to get out and about and explore the island more extensively. The resort looks out over the bay and the busy harbour so there’s always something to keep the eye occupied – but if all you want is to lie back in tranquil seclusion and gaze vacantly at an endless blue sea and empty horizon, then you’re definitely advised to look elsewhere.

Mauricia is a big resort at 238 rooms and the rooms exhibit very bright and cheerful modern décor touches. For the entry level rooms we often suggest you go for a superior room above a standard room if your budget allows. The standard rooms are lovely and modern and a fairly decent size (32 m²) and also have a very small balcony or terrace – however for slightly more money in the Superior Rooms you will get your own enclosed garden terrace (all 60 of these rooms are on the ground floor) as well as a slightly larger room (38m²). Whilst both of these room types accommodate a child along with parents, probably the best choice for families are the Garden Facing Apartments (70 m²) which feature 2 ensuite bedrooms offering enough space for a family of up to 5. If you are a couple looking to spoil yourselves definitely consider a Suite where you’ll get to enjoy your own private plunge pool, outdoor shower and whirlpool bath.

There’s no doubt that Mauricia is 100% a family friendly hotel. Not only do all of the rooms (except the Suite) accommodate children, but the 2 bedroom family apartments are specifically designed to accommodate families of 4 or 5. The all inclusive nature of the hotel (if you opt for this option) also ensures that parents aren’t continuously worrying about every drink or snack being consumed by their children going onto a worryingly large bill come check-out time. During school holidays there are usually plenty of other families at the hotel so your kids will have loads of other children to make friends and play with - and of course there’s also an excellent kid’s club to keep the little ones entertained whilst their parents take a well earned break. On the other hand Mauricia Hotel will not suit all couples. It is really for those people looking for good value for money and a bit of a social atmosphere - it is also one of a small number of hotels on the island that hosts a nightclub. So if you’re looking for a quieter and very romantic experience you’re probably better advised to look elsewhere.

The beach is of a decent quality, lined with palm trees as well as loungers and thatched umbrellas – with all the busyness and water traffic in the bay however you’re not likely to get the brilliant aquamarine and absolutely clear water found at some of the better beaches on the island. Many water and land sports are available and the diving school for all levels offers limitless opportunities to discover the most beautiful sites off the north of Mauritius. Sporting activities offered free of charge include tennis, table tennis, volleyball, waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, glass bottom boat and snorkeling - at extra costs bicycle hire, scuba diving, catamaran tours and deep sea fishing are available. If your idea of exercising on holiday is limited to walking to the Spa for a massage then you’ll also be happy with the lovely Spa with 10 treatment cabins designed to resemble nomadic tents, cleverly laid out around a shaded pool.

Mauricia offers 2 restaurants, 1 bar and a nightclub. The main restaurant, Les Quais, overlooks one of the pools and serves breakfast and buffet lunch and in the evenings you can take a voyage of discovery at themed buffets served from 'live' cooking stations. For a more elegant experience, the minimalist white interiors of Le Nautic will appeal to those looking for a more intimate atmosphere. The teak furniture and miniature paddles that hang on the walls offset the otherwise entirely white space. Built on a spilt-level close to the pool and beach and facing the sea towards the setting sun, this elegant restaurant serves fresh fish and seafood and enjoys a particularly intimate atmosphere when night falls. Guests are also able to dine at nearby sister resort Canonnier Beachcomber (prior reservation is advised to ensure you can get in on the night of course) Each evening the hotel arranges shows with dancers and music-bands where you can get carried away by the captivating rhythm of the sega dance in the balmy tropical air. If you want to live it up a little, try La Rhumerie nightclub which opens until late, or take a short walk along the beach to enjoy the varied nightlife of Grand Baie.
