We spent 5 nights at Cotton Bay Hotel. I read lots of reviews about it beforehand and they're all pretty accurate. My first impression was not a great one: I put my bags down in my room, went into my bathroom, and found that my towel (the only one I was given) had a previous user's hair embedded in it....

Nice food for breakfast and dinner - Buffet Type. Varieties of seafood offered. Entertainment every night. Staff available to assist. Wifi not too good. Room is clean and comfortable. Transport can be sometimes difficult to obtain - Need to arrange well in advance with the hotel. In a nutshell, it's a nice place to stay for holidays.

Me and my partner went to Rodrigues for a relaxing weekend but it end up as a night mare due to the management and poor customer service. We were not impressed that we waited 1 hour at check- in while there was only one staff at the reception. The staff was helping other customers and ignored us! Rip off Please...

The staffs of the reception, reservation and housekeeping are very friendly and perfect. Concerning the restaurant's staffs, they need to act better. When having dinner, they give only half of one litre of water per client. If you ask for more, you'll have to pay. At least water could have been given free of charge. If you arrive around 9...

The hotel itself looked old and the room needs to be renewed. The buffet was ok, the special honeymoon dinner was horrible (charcoal octopus legs + over cook greasy rice) .

We enjoyed the room most. We stayed int he honeymoon suite and it was just beautifully set up with a great view. The hotel itself I found was pretty average - Staff were nice, pool was alright, food was very poor (plain and boring) and we couldn't swim at the hotel beach because it was too rocky.

this resort offers the best quality-price match, with rooms overlooking the beach, a large swimming pool, good local food and attentive staff; the facilities need some works but the relaxing mood and the smiling staff overshadow the shortcomings.
