We loved the private villas of Maradiva and glad we chose the extra privacy provided by the garden villa rather than the beachside villas. The private plunge pools are great for when you donâ??t want to sit by the beach, or to get out of the sun. The villas provide a good amount of shaded area. There are a range of activities that are provided complimentary as part of the resort, e.g. glass-bottom boat trip, snorkelling, bike hire, use of spa facilities, tennis court etc. However, it would be great to have a reminder/list of these complimentary activities within the villa rather than having to remember when guests first arrive. Maradiva provide a good selection of restaurants for different cuisines, and the main Coast2Coast restaurant have an optional menu each evening. Guests should book a table well in-advance in order to enjoy the Indian and Japanese restaurants. Not sure we would consider this a 5 star hotel, but perhaps our thoughts and opinions are skewed by our stay at Dulini Lodge. Maradiva Villas is a lovely hotel, but high prices of drinks, supplemental foods and services (there isnâ??t even an iron in the room as they want you to pay for laundry service!), low maintenance of equipment (bikes for use) and inconsistency of housekeeping brought down our experience of Maradiva.

The resort was lovely, the staff was very helpful, the food was sub par for a 5 star restaurant.

The Maradiva is a very nice resort, but it is not 5 star standard. starting out with the positive: the villa interior (we stayed in a luxury suite villa) is top notch (especially the bathrooms), the same goes for the outdoor space of the villa, except for the fact that almost everyone wandering around the lawns can see into your courtyard and pool area (this reduces privacy extremely!). The landscaping of the resort is equally nice and it is very well maintained. In terms of critique: a) food: the food is less than average, Coast2Coast restaurant really is not good at all taste wise; the other 2 restaurant Indian and Japanese are slightly better, although I had food poisioning after eating in the Japanese restaurant (but these things can happen), but very unflexible and the location is not very nice. b) staff: although the staff was very, very nice it was clear that effective management of staff is lacking throughout the resort. For instance, on average we had different staff in our villa around 6 times per day (to clean, to bring hand towels that were not available when the original cleaning was done (every day!), to clean the pool, to check the minibar, to bring afternoon treats, turn-down service - all the while knocking and then barging in the villa) all of these services were performed by different people at different times, although many of those could be done by the same person or at least all at once (e.g. cleaning, pool cleaning, towels, minibar) severely disrupting our day. The same chaos exists in the restaurant, especially Coast2Coast, e.g. at breakfast 4-5 different people wait on 2 guests ? all of them asking the same questions. This is just very annoying for the guest and could easily be changed, by coordinating the staff better. All in all, we had a good time at Maradiva and on Mauritius, but we would have preferred a more upscale resort ? especially with view on the food (which had been soooo good during the first week of our travels).
