This is the finest holiday I have been on and is still ongoing. The staff are the most helpful and kindest of people. Always willing to do that extra step for you. The food is wonderful and your room is emaculate. Cleaned every morning and all clothing put in order. The whole complex is kept emaculated clean even to the outside bearing in mind all the tropical plants losing there leaves. It is a family friendly complex and although classed as 3 star I would personally rate this 5 star.
If you plan to visit Mauritius and explore a little bit of the island (north part of the island) and the local style ...and you are not a billionaire(!) this is the perfect choice for you. First of all the reception people, the welcoming staff and all the staff of the hotel in general is incredible happy, smiley and helpful all the times! We liked them all so much!!! Additionally, the room was perfectly clean, spacious and traditional style overlooking at the swimming pool and with balcony - an amazing room. There are at least two restaurants one ala carte and one menu option - considering generally the prices in Mauritius and compared to other resorts very well priced. Excellent value for money. Taxi transfers and excursions were a bit pricey but that's okay, you can also check via internet by yourself... Finally we asked for a romantic dinner for a wedding proposal and everything was so well and nice prepared that will stay unforgettable for ever for us... All the people were coming and wishing congratulations to us and everyone was super happy and smiley! Thank you so much Veranda for everything and for accommodating so well our very special moment!!! Unforgettable memories
I stayed at this hotel for a week, on a half-board prepaid arrangement. It is not good value if you are vegetarian. For example, today after waiting for 1 hour and 15 minutes, I was served some stone cold plain vegetables and some plain baked potatoes. Extremely disappointing after such a long wait, I went back to my room and ate a muesli bar for dinner instead. The chef had previously really gone out of his way to make something for me each night, but there should really be a decent set of options available each night without having to make special arrangements. I had booked the hotel through Flight Centre, was very surprised when arriving on a flight at 9.30pm at night that the was no room service options. Instead my only option option despite paying for half board for that day was to scrape the remnants of a Vegetable curry from the bottom of the bay marie where the curry had obviously been sitting there for hours and was stone cold. To finish a 7 day stay with such a long wait and really unappetising food which was also stone cold was a real downer. Even the normal tea and coffee satchets are charged for after the first day. I complained strongly to flight Centre about this and the hotel offered me free sachets that point on, and also a 30 minute massage. Overall the hotel was okay, the room was very clean and comfortable, the housekeeping service was very good, the location is great. The staff were friendly and wanted to please. Such a shame about the very subpar food I was served on my first and last nights nights, and the drama of having to make special arrangements for the entire stay. I had lovely food outside the hotel without any drama involved and will never book half or full board at any hotel again after this bad experience.
Veranda, Grand Baie had it all in-store for us a comfortable room with a small kitchen and a cozy balcony, a private beach, the most friendly staff and a overall an amazing property. Food, fun and frolic is in store at the resort with everyday shows and activities all lined up for the guests with sumptuous meals. We had taken the half board plan for breakfast and dinner. The resort also arranged for a wonderful candle light dinner for us. The experience of glass bottom boat and kayaking offered complimentary by the resort was an icing on the cake. We would really like to thank Elvina, Kajal, Chef Vignesh, Chef Amit and Shakina for taking special care of our comfort, likes and dislikes during the stay. We were really heart broken to check out but until next time.. Merci Beaucoup ... Au Revoir!!
Had a wonderful time with all the wonderful staffs & services offered. Special thanks to MY Vikash Dawoo, Mr Paynee, Mr VInesh, Chef Vinesh, Atish and Varun (FnB), shyrill (Spa) and Ishita (Reception).
Overall the hotel was lovely and has the makings of a beautiful resort, however lets itself down over a couple of things.........The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and pool area pretty. The beach is tiny yet adequate, you get beach towels supplied which is a bonus. We stayed in a comfort room and whilst small it had all the amenities and was clean and tidy, apart from the shower which smelt a little musty. One downfall to the room is you have tea and coffee making facilities, however you only get free teabags,milk and coffee satches on your first day, the rest of the time you have to pay for them..... I have never known this in any other hotel that we’ve stayed!!!! Staff at the hotel are friends and always had a smile. Restaurant.... well, the food was average with the exception of the themed Indian and Mauritian night when the food was amazing....We stayed half board which included breakfast and main meal. (We we’re hoping that at times we could maybe change our main meal for lunch but this wasn’t possible).There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, where the food is good and cheaper than the hotel. If we were to visit again I would definitely go B&B. For lunch if you go to the beach area and turn right, walk past the boat club after a few minutes you come to an area of beach and food shacks. The first shack you come to the food was amazing for lunch and so cheap!! The price of the drinks at the hotel are on par with UK prices. The spa was nice albeit be aware.... when we arrived we received an offer of a free 10 minute hand or foot massage to be taken during the first 2 days of your holiday & an extra 10% of any other treatment. I went to the spa & booked the free 10min foot massage along with another treatment. Arrive the following day, received the additional treatment (which was lovely) received no free foot massage and no 10% discount.......disappointing! This was our third visit to Mauritius, first time to this hotel. We’ve previously stayed at Shandrani in the south which is absolutely stunning and Coin de Mire in the North which was also very nice. Overall we had a lovely time at Veranda Grand Baie Resort. It’s an average 3 * hotel. I don’t think we would return purely down to too many other places we would like to visit.
I have always enjoyed my stay at Veranda Grand Baie. A place my Friends and Family will always recommend. The place where you feel at home! The food, the helpful front office with Asha warms your heart as well as the many front officers, the restaurant clean and food is like home made and many other special dishes available. The Hotel Manager Vikash with a great welcoming smile. The Hotel is situated right in the heart of Grand Baie thus many amenities are available with just a few steps.The priviledged rooms are a bliss, spacious and more than comfortable. A hotel where you have to confortable a place to visit if you consider to live in Grand Baie. Its all worth it.
We did a 10 day all inclusive deal which was worth every penny.Great hotel -the staff were super friendly. The chef served a feast every day. Sade the barman makes the best cocktail. Adarsh, Puwan and Jeff were always there to assist. Keep up the great work. Thank you
Family ,children will enjoy a lot The staffs were very caring The FnB team was excellent Vegetarians were also happy with varieties of dishes Need to increase more entertainment Very relaxing near the pool and children can enjoy at maximum
Centralised location, comfortable rooms. Some of the staff is very friendly like Raja at restaurant and the head chef . They really tried to make our stay comfortable. Some staff people are not accommodating though. Highly recommended!
