My sister and I stayed here in April for a few days and all I can say is WOW! The room and staff (not to mention the beauty of Mauritius itself) exceeded our expectations and we had a fantastic vacation because of that. Patrick - the manager - was the perfect hostess and wanted to make our stay as comfortable... More

Staff is very gentle and the hotel is in a quiet place. The room was spacious and clean. Anyway, the beach is not very close to the hotel, you need a car or you can use their bicycles (there is a bit of slope to cope with, not for all people): we had a car. Very good breakfast and exceptional... More

Want to explore Mauritius? Visit lots of different beaches? Eat where the local people eat? Sleep in a comfortable room without paying for hotel facilities you will never use? If that’s the case this may be your best option for accommodation. But if you want your hotel right by the beach you may well be better off somewhere else. I’ve... More

Our recent stay for 4 days in October 2013 could not have been better. The manager and his wife could not have been better hosts! The personal attention and help we received from them was a major surprise. The room (2 bed suite) was immaculate and tastefully designed. It is a bit far from the beach area but we were... More

I stayed for almost two weeks in this self catering hotel - the location is perfect although too far from the beach and Flic & Flac center but you can get bicycle. Best is to rent a car to explore and all have mobilty. The manager is most helpful (Patrick) and allways prepared to help - I had an issue... More

The hotel is small and cosy. For a low-budget traveller, you pay for what you will have. The rooms are self catering and the staff very helpful. The blanket was dirty and automatically the manager brings another one. Therafter he offers us some hot samoosas. Very kind!

We stayed for 7 weeks. The location was great for exploring the west and south part of the island, and self-catering helped us keep costs down, as eating in good restaurants is expensive. Studios are large and very well lit; patio doors let in the daylight (as well as the view); good bright lights at night. Furniture was ample and... More
