Small and beautiful

Review of Ocean Beauty
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Feb 2014
Located on a driveway off the main road, this small beach hotel seems to have one of the best spots, close to the winner supermarket, little snacks, the gorgeous Thai restaurant.

As soon as we arrived, we got in our room , the benitier suite, where some tropical flower arrangements greeted us. The receptionist booked our first dinner which saved us the hassle of finding one on our arrival day. Breakfast every day was simply superb, brought to our room terrace. the egg Benedict though took time was worth the wait. Nothing was too much for the waiter, from extra coffee to extra toasts. We did not experience any issues as in the previous reviews.

Our package also included water sports, ski which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Overall The service has been wonderful, thanks to Jennifer at the reception who constantly looked after us daily.

We also had a dinner on the beach, with a four course meal. Mauritian fusion cuisine seems promising. Although slightly pricey, it was worth it.

Our four night stay was definitely too short. We will return and recommend to our friends.

This is my 3 or 4th visit to this bed and breakfast on the beach. I only stay here because the location is convenient for my agent who lives close by and the rooms are OK. Having said that the rooms are deteriorating in quality. In my first room on this trip the air conditioner poured water over the wardrobe and my jacket. No apology just you will have to change room. Next room bath tub hot water tap does not work. Towel rail falls off the wall as soon as I take the towel. In the shower large salt crystal is growing through the tile joint. In the toilet the finishes are very poor.TV no English programs just 4 or 5 local channels. The free wifi is rubbish so you cannot watch TV on your IPad or PC as it's too slow and the signal is intermittent. This is not a hotel as described on the websites such as booking.com and the owner's description that it is a Boutique Hotel is quite frankly a fraudulent statement. There is no restaurant, no bar, and minimal staff a receptionist during the day, a breakfast waiter and a security guard. After 5 pm only a security guard is present. The owners live on the property but don't interact with guests - probably they don't want to hear complaints. The breakfast service is a joke. Many times they just ignore the breakfast order and don't serve it. Three times on three visits I have left without breakfast because it was not served before I left. Do they care - answer no. The receptionist just blames the kitchen. Refund forget it this is an island were visitors are just considered cash machines to be milked at will. If I used this bed and breakfast for a holiday I would be extremely disappointed. As a place to sleep while on business it is just OK.

Although our stay started ok, it quickly went fully down the drain mostly due to disastrous service and poor infrastructure
- The waiter at breakfast looked like we pissed him off every time we ordered something
- The reception is closed at night. We were supposed to leave early in the morning (8am) to go to the airport, we informed the staff the day before but no one showed up until 9.30am. No manager was in the hotel, only one security that put us in touch by phone with a receptionist. She told me on the phone that "today is not my shift so your problem is not my problem". She then hang-up without notice
- No wifi available in the room. Only slow wifi available at the reception and only during day time
- The beach is a joke. It's actually just a plot of land that appear only at low tide

Initial impressions of the room were very good - large, well furnished with modern but comfortable decor. However from there on things went down. First of all the breakfast which was brought in from another building (once taking 40 minutes to reach us). The eggs were stone cold and many items on the menu were not available. On one one morning we were given a chipped and very dirty milk jug. All this served on a dirty and stained table cloth.
It took us some time to work out how to work the tv and guidance would have been helpful. The shaver socket in the bathroom did not work and the peculiar light intensity button beside the bed did not work either, leaving us with over bright lighting and without individual bedside lamps.
We found the staff fairly helpful (although the receptionist went off duty at 5 p.m.).
Our overall impression was that in spite of the staff attempting to provide a service they were poorly trained and, above all, poorly supervised.
One unexpected bonus was the great variety of birds walking across the scrubby grass to share our breakfast.
The hotel definitely fails my return test - no, I would not go back. A pity because it has great potential.

It's disappointing, really, when you visit such a beautiful place and yet feel so unwelcome. The receptionist is the main problem - disinterested, bored, tired, and hostile, she tarnished our whole experience. I was traveling with my mom, who has limited mobility, yet her lack of concern or empathy was palpable. The breakfast did not live up to the delightfully sophisticated menu - a "fresh fruit platter" consisted or two bruised bananas and 6 slices of pineapple, for example, and the "order from our bakery selection of croissants, pain au chocolat, pain au raisin" etc actually could only deliver to slices of plain white toast that were crisped to cardboard. And what kind of Mauritian kitchen runs out of chillies, one of the stated ingredients for the Mauritian omelette? All of this smacks of poor or no management, staff who are untrained or unsupervised. The setting is sublime, the pool and ocean setting blissful, the rooms well-resourced and comfortable. The basics are there, but this beauty lacks grace and is unwelcoming. I'd give it a huge miss if I were you. There are so many other fish in the sea, hotels in the area.

We had a short stay at ocean beauty as part of our trip to mauritius and were actually quite impressed by its location on the beach of pereybere with breathtaking views on the ocean.
Rooms were clean and modern with good amenities and close to restaurants. Will greatly recommend.
