Maritim and stray cats

Hello all

Planning on booking the Maritim for our 10 year anniversary. I noted some reviews making reference to stray cats in the restaurants and grounds.

My husband is allergic to cats so is concerned. Has anyone been recently and can comment?

Thanks

Can't say about Maritim specifically but a lot of stray cats in hotel restaurants and restaurants in general.

Its a fact of life in Mauritius sorry.

I've seen strays at virtually all the hotels we've stayed at but they are timid so don't bother people. I'm also allergic to cats and it's never been a problem for me.

I've seen the odd stray cat and hotels really don't like them to hang around the restaurants, but as guests often feed them they will appear from time to time. It's the same when you go into towns or to the restaurants by the beaches.

Allergies are highly unlikely to be an issue with outdoor animals, its only the build up inside homes which usually causes problems.

You'll be fine, unless one has taken up residence in your bedroom!

I quite like them myself too, also the more cats you see about, the less rats I reckon!

Don't remember seeing any stray cats at Maritim when we were there. However a fair amount of stray dogs on beach. This is only a concern if you are at one of the beach tables at the Maree though (they don't come into the building though
