Silver Beach sounds idyllic doesn't it? And so it is. In fact, there's a real feeling of exclusivity about the Silver Beach Hotel. Located on its very own private stretch of beach at Trou d'Eau Douce, south of Belle Mare this is a part of Mauritius that's famed for its deep blue lagoons and long stretches of sparkling sandy beach.
The views from the hotel are peerless. From your room, you'll be able to look out onto the beautiful hotel gardens or the sea beyond. And your balcony makes a wonderful vantage point on it all. What better way to spend an hour than by watching the sky darken, cool drink in hand as the sun goes down after another beautiful day.*
With its lush gardens, nestled right on the edge of the sandy beach, the Silver Beach hotel sells itself. Holidaymakers are won over by its beautiful location and very private amenities. After all, what could be better than having a little patch of a paradise island to call your own?
Watersports enthusiasts are won over by the easy access to the sea, as well as the lagoons and coves of Belle Mare - and all the fantastic opportunities they bring for diving, snorkelling, kayaking and more. Silver Beach provides a full range of activities for both the energetic and the fun-seeking watersports enthusiasts. Want to get out and see a bit more of this beautiful island? A bicycle is a great way to explore, and bikes can be hired from the hotel.
But no matter how busy your holiday itinerary is, make sure you take full advantage of the all-inclusive package benefits with breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as snacks and local alcoholic and soft drinks. Even if you're taking a very relaxed holiday, you can work up quite an appetite in the sea air. Live entertainment rounds off most days at Silver Beach – always with the promise of so much more to see and do tomorrow.
Silver Beach certainly sets a gold standard. With its exclusive beach and wide ranging amenities it presents holidaymakers with the perfect recipe for whatever kind of Mauritian holiday they want.

The Silver Beach Hotel is situated on an exclusive beach at Trou d'Eau Douce on the east coast just south of Belle Mare, an area famous for its white sandy shoreline and lagoons. The hotel overlooks the lush gardens, the pool and the blue sea beyond. A wonderful place for watersports enthusiasts.
My boyfriend and I travelled on the 19-29th Feb 2020. He booked an ocean view room, on the top floor, floor 4, (*note, there are no lifts at this small hotel) stairs only) facing out toward the beautiful ocean and overlooking the gardens/pool/beach. The room were a good size, very clean, bathroom a good size with a shower etc...
The room has tea/coffee making facilities, fridge, hairdryer, balcony with x2 chairs and a table, lots of wardrobe and shelving space, and a safe in the wardrobe. The bed were a little firm for me, however, it really wasn't an issue.
The staff are amazing, warm, friendly, and nothing is too much trouble at all. All the restaurant staff / bar staff were fabulous, and the Manager she were a delight! always happy with a smile on her face. As were Raz ! The food for a 3 star hotel, I thought were amazing. I have travelled the world and am still doing so, plus work as cabin crew so I have experienced so many hotels. For a small independent hotel, the food was varied, from wonderful buffet breakfast, to dinner - curries, meat, fish, salads, fruits, with sometimes a little bit of the "norm" some pasta etc but I loved the food. Buffet is on offer then they do a fixed 3/4 course dinner once or twice a week (I can't remember) this was equally as lovely.
Because its a smaller hotel, you get to know people, which is nice.
It were my boyfriends Birthday whilst we were away, and they made such an effort at dinner, decorated the table, and made a lovely cake with firework candles etc it was lovely.
The pool is a decent size in the garden, not that anyone really used it, and why would you, when this hotel sits on a lovely white sandy beach! We had no issue getting sun beds, which are on the beach and on the garden, they provide towels. The staff will come to the beach to see if you would like drinks. We personally tip, bearing in mind this is a poor country. The staff deserved the tips for sure.!
The beach is lovely white sand beach, however, you need swim shoes, as going into the ocean, the sand is mixed with finely crushed coral/shell, so it will hurt your feet heading in/out, but it's not an issue, the ocean is stunning blues/turquoise, and lovely to swim in. We walked the length of the beach, it was gorgeous, and we headed left along the beach and followed it round which led around the coastline.
BOAT TRIPS: okay, pay attention folks! The hotel staff and everyone will tell you this, but I will mention it as well, DO NOT BUY ANY BOAT TRIPS FROM THE RASTA BEACH DUDE, OR FROM ANYONE ELSE whom works from the local harbour, who will approach you if Ravi is out on a boat trip. only USE RAVI from Silver Beach Hotel. His boat trip was the BEST ! His lovely cousin took us out from the hotel beach, we saw so much it was wonderful. We went with two friends we made at the hotel, so it were just the four of us. Ravis cousin is so knowledgeable as he is a local fisherman there. We went to the old disused lighthouse, and got lucky as we spotted dolphins en route, which isn't guaranteed! It was just an added bonus, a family of four dolphins, so we stopped to look at them for a while. Then we went along side this island with green vegetation, and he showed us giant tortoises on the island! I had never seen these before, so it was fantastic!!!! We then snorkelled and saw some lovely fish and corals. Then we went on to Il aux Cerf beach, the little waterfall nearby, and he took us where there were fish to snorkel. He dropped us at Il Aux Cerf beach and we had no time pressure at all. So we had a drink at the beach bar and chilled as we had done a previous trip with another company and it was awful!! Ravis cousin en route down to the waterfall, pointed out there were monkeys in the mangrove trees, I spotted them and were so excited to see them in the wild, he asked us to bring bananas now I know why! He quietly let the boat up to the edge of the trees, told me to hold my arm out and the monkey reached down and took the banana from my hand ! was amazing. We had drinks on board Rum !!! yum! and soft drinks. And Ravis price was spot on for the area.
I can't remember the boat company who came to the beach and sold us our first boat trip, but they wore blue t-shirts, they tried to take extra cash from us by using hard sales tactics trying to confuse you over prices, add on costs etc its a well known sales tactic, so you end up so confused you don't know what you're paying for! That trip was terrible, once they get your money they don't care at all. The boat drivers don't interact, or smile, there's a lot of you on each boat, they rush you around, especially at Il Aux Cerf beach, and the lunch on a beach was rubbish, and we had paid for lobster and they said they had none! So, my advice is don't use anyone else apart from RAVI, whom is vetted and works for the hotel. But please do not let this put you off, as there are no hawkers on the beach as this resort is a quiet tranquil non touristy side of the island (East coast side). I guess boat trips are the main competition in such a small community.
If you're looking for a busy town/resort with night life in a town, this is not for you. The hotel has entertainment, however, it is over an hour transfer from the airport. The local village has a few restaurants and a ATM and the boat harbour.
We truly had the best time, and would definitely return to the Silver Beach Hotel. For value for money this was spot on for a 3 star, in fact, I would say it was way better than a 3 star!! 3 stars because the hotel has no other amenities I'd say, like a spa salon etc
A big thank you to all the staff for making our stay utterly delightful. And Ravi, and your cousin, thank you for the BEST boat trip.

Once again the food and service have been excellent and the staff are second to none always willing to help.We had two great trips arrange through the hotel both proved a great days out. I only gave a very good this year as many of the sun shade s are missing but they are expected soon but thats only a minor thing
Ok so hotel is a little tired looking however it is spotless and the staff are super friendly.Due to my husband's bad knee we paid a supplement for a ground floor sea facing room which was fab.Hotel very small which suited us .Housekeeping not only cleaned room but the glass doors as well every day.Loved the food as it varied daily and 4 nights a week it was silver service instead of buffet.I loved that although staff weren't always coping with the service that well ll.No night life to speak of but not a problem for us.One of staff that stood out for us was Zee.Attentive without being overbearing and his attention to detail is spot on.We also found reception staff friendly and helpful.Only niggle was a new staff member at end of our trip was actually rude and needs to brush up on his guest relation skills!Didn't catch his name but he informed us he'd been working on cruise ships and had worked at this hotel some 7 years previously.A little mention for Malina in restaurant for her professional service and friendly ness.Beach is lovely however I'd advise water shoes s as a lot of coral that will cut your feet when you go in sea.Booked an amazing boat trip with Ravi in beach.Beware Rasta Man! Loungers on beach pretty antiquated.They don't recline and are heavy to move.All in all we loved it here and would definitely return.
This three star hotel delivers all that it's website claims. The staff are friendly, professional and work extremely hard. Rooms are spacious and cleaned every day. The food is good and offers a good variety to suit most tastes...
They will always offer an alternative if there's nothing suitable on the menu. Some contributors mention that it needs updating. Well it depends what you are looking for, style or substance! There are no fluffy towels or dressing gowns or numerous cushions on the bed. Paintwork is continually being refreshed and inside and out is clean and tidy. For us it's the location on a beautiful Sandy beach edging an aquamarine lagoon under (most of the time) a glorious blue sky. Stroll along the beach to find a small reef with an abundance of colourful fish. Enough to keep us amused twice a day for two weeks! Our fourth visit here and I suspect we will be back!
I decided to book this hotel due the rating on here. After arriving at the hotel in the evening after at 12 hour flight, just enough time to get ready for dinner. The holiday was soon runied later that evening when I found put my money was stolen from the safe...
Report it to the reception who tried to say I must have spend it or my family took it. I had to insist on calling the police which he did reluctantly. The manager came to the room the next day which I thought was to help but basically told me I was liaring, even though I had given a statement to the police. This ruined the rest of what was meant to be our dream holiday. Avoid!
