I went for my Honeymoon in November 2016 to Mauritius. The hotel of my choice was Westin Turtle Bay. and it proved out to be the best decision besides getting married. An amazing hotel- super friendly staff and rooms were class apart. I stayed in Beachfront room 603 and it was amazing. The staffs at the dining joints along with... More

My wife and I stayed here at the Westin for a relaxing holiday. The hotel overall was very good. The service (particular in the retreat bar) was excellent. The hotel feels like there is 2 parts as the other bar (Mystique) is further away along with another 2 restaurants. This is a positive as it gives you plenty to explore.... More

We stayed in the Westin for two weeks for our Honeymoon. It was simply perfect. Room was very impressive, spacious and well appointed. And spotlessly clean every day. Lovely view over the pool and the sea. Restaurants were generally excellent, two options for lunch (Beach Grill and Mystique). The Beach Grill was our favorite for lunch, lots of grilled meat,...

This was our first visit to Mauritius and the hotel was booked from the research we had done as it appeared to be on the right side of the island for enjoying the sunsets. The Hotel fronts a public sandy beach - at the time we visited, September, there were no issues with finding yourself a quiet spot on the... More

I was checked in on arrival by Joana who was very welcoming and informative. Best part of the check in was being told that I was upgraded to a Banyan Suite so after a quick bit of lunch my room was ready. Wow, very very nice and huge with a walk out view to the sea. Room literally had 3... More

Checking out tomorrow after staying for 1 week. Overall very good. Staff efficient and friendly. Rooms big and comfortable. Great pools but beach is very ordinary. Covered in coral rock and shallow making it almost impossible to swim. Food good albeit like most resorts drinks pricey!

We recently stayed at Westin Turtle Bay. As a group of about 19 people, we probably spent over $30,000 AUD on accommodation. In general the food was good, though it would have been nice to have some traditional Mauritian food options. The accommodation and facilities were nice, but generally quite dirty (we had to complain about bird droppings that didn't... More
