Rooms are frugal but clean and neatly designed. Service is basic but good. Close to the capital and the hotel works with taxis so you can ask for that and ask them to negotiate the prices for you!! Beach is not usable but you get a perfect sunset view. Nice pool if a swim is needed.

We were in Mauritius for a 3 day biz trip and instead of the usual biz hotels, booked this villa. We had full day meetings in Ebene or Port Louis so while the villa is a bit far away from both, cabs can be arranged for Euro 10 one way. The drivers (Ahmed) are very professional and on time. the...

Nice building, but the accommodation is not suitable for families, good only for backpackers (but the price......), located in queer neighbourhood, the beach in front is not usable, just big stones...(no pictures of the beach). It is better to rent a car, but local bus service is fine, close to the city.

The appearance and loving restoration of this house is stunning. Its next to the sea, with a small fence in between (Mauritians say the sea near Port Louis is too dirty for swimming!). The food is really delicious and interesting, I could not resist eating breakfast and dinners. The room was large and comfortable with a 4-poster bed. The family... More

This villa has a great deal to recommend it, but is let down by uneven management. The location is good, being near Port Louis but still far enough away to escape. There are a small number of rooms, and the rooms are really well put together. The grounds and villa are really well designed and maintained. There is a restaurant... More

Very nice and attractive location for Business People who are not targeting one of the big anonymous world wide acting Hotel chains. I lived literally together with the owner family, very nice and friendly people, who introduced me to the island. Food is delicious, home made and always fresh. They offer local food as well as French cuisine. The rooms... More
