I spent 3 weeks at the Pallagino last month.The hosts Sandy,Rajun and their daughter Athena made me feel most welcome.The food was out of this world.The rooms were very clean.Rajun is a great source of knowledge regarding places to visit and what to do in Mauritius.I highly recommend the Pallagino to anyone who wants to visit Mauritius.

Situated less than 2 mins from the Flic en Flac public beach, Pallagino offers a family friendly accommodation with a warm and homey decor. It is always sunny when I go there, the rooms are air-conditioned which is also interesting when I bring work.

My husband, Greg, stayed with Sandy and Rajen recently. Thanks to them his very rushed visit to Mauritius was enjoyable, he was fed really well by Sandy's magnificent cooking and he could get some first rate advise on various things we were looking into. Thank you, we'll definitely be back, can't wait to meet them.

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Pallagino. Both Sandy and Rajen were very welcoming and gave honest travel advice (eg: which attractions are overrated etc). We participated in a private cooking class for €65 each which included a copy of Sandy's book. The experience was wonderful and the food was even better. The location is good, and... More

We have been to Pallagino for 3 days only, and we already feel at home. Great food prepared by Sandy as a bonus, We have canceled our reservation at the other guest house in the north and decided to stay here for remaining 4 nights. Maybe one day we will come back with our big boys and their family.

I had a lovely three-day stay with Sandy and her family. The room was nice and the villa is located 2 minutes walking distance from the beach and 5 minutes from the center of Flic en Flac. Sandy spoiled her guests with a fascinating Mauritian dinner every night whilst Rajen told some interesting and funny stories about Mauritius. I did... More
