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

My son and I stayed here on a recent visit to Mauritius to go deep sea fishing in nearby Blackriver. Mariposa was recommended by the outfitter. The staff was friendly, helpful and easy going. I liked the fact that our room opened to the beach and ocean. I enjoyed a few beautiful sunsets on our balcony. The cost was reasonable/affordable.... More

If you prefer smaller, unpretentious structures this is ideal. It's one of the few smaller places actually on the beach and it's also particularly convenient with several restaurants and a good supermarket within walking distance, which for me is not very far in the heat. The staff are really helpful, the rooms are quite large and all come with separate... More

We spent half of our honeymoon at La Mariposa. It is beautifully situated directly at the beach. We booked a sunset apartment, which was equipped with a kitchen. The apartment was clean and spacious and our terrace was only steps away from the beach. We had a rental car and La Mariposa was the perfect starting point to tour the... More
