We have had an excellent week spent in this hotel! We were amazed at first by the colorful garden with a lot of colorful birds and the view from the beach. We had planned to spend our first week here to explore the island and we did it well. Don't hesitate to rent a car and drive around. This is... More

We stayed here for our second week in Mauritius in November 2014. Coming from a 5 star all inclusive week on the other side of the island, this was a bit of a change but that's exactly why we chose it. The location (directly onto a lovely stretch of sandy beach) could not be better and more than makes up... More

(4 and a half really) The Mariposa faces its own delightful and very quiet bit of beach with a superb backdrop - great views from your balcony!. It is quiet - the staff are not always to be found but when you do they are very friendly and helpful. The units have mini kitchens - and the shower always had... More

We planned a week here and stayed for 2, the unit was very well suited for our young family and it was right on the beach. The staff were helpful and friendly. If you are looking for a great self catering place to stay, you can't go wrong here.

My wife and I had a one-night stay-over at this budget self-catering establishment. We paid 88 Euro for a double-room. We did not use the self-catering facility, but the furnishings and equipment were functional and well-maintained. The room and the bedding were clean. A simple Continental breakfast is included in the price. The property is right on the beach and... More

Stated here for a few days, the place is right on the beach with great views but I should not have booked in here as wrong standard for myself. This is a good basic facility at a fair price but I have never seen a hotel room with so little furniture in the rooms, the breakfast is not the best... More

This BB is set on a beautiful beach with great views. If you absolutely don't care about accommodation, then this might work for you, but if you do, then you better look somewhere else.  We found it hard to believe that for Sunday afternoon arrivals there was absolutely no food or fruit waiting after a long flight and we were...

We spent 1 week at La Mariposa between the 20th and 27th of July 2013. La Mariposa is ideally situated on the west coast of Mauritius. Very convenient to go to Le Morne beach, to Chamarel, to the National Park. For snorkeling and for grocery shopping. The view from our beachfront room was absolutely superb. The room itself is big,... More

Decided to splash out on a sunset apartment which is literally steps from La Preneuse beach. It was well worth it, waking up to views over Le Morne and the blue lagoon. Studios are well-equipped and offer a huge bed. Enjoyed taking my breakfast tray back to our terrace for breakfast each morning - loaded with fresh fruit, bread, eggs... More

We were here on a 4 night stopover en route from Perth Australia back home to the UK. The phrase 'pieds dans l'eau' couldn't be more apt - our studio apartment's (which cost less than your average English B & B) terrace was about 6 feet from the beach! Buffet breakfast, included in the price, was served on the edge... More
