We loved staying at this place three times and used it as our base when we travelled to Madagascar and to Rodriguez island from Mauritius. The local beach is about 5 minutes walk away from the apartments which is great. Blue Bay itself has probably got the best swimming beach in Mauritius (in our opinion) and can be quiet &... More

Very friendly and clean place to stay at a good price. Pingouinvillas is well located with Blue Bay beach only five minutes walk away on quiet streets. Also, Pingouinvillas has two friendly and good restaurants within five walk of the villas. The only downside to the apartment we stayed in was that there was no where comfortable to sit in... More

I have just come back from my Mauritius holiday with my friends and one thing I can say about Pingouinvillas, amazing. The customer satisfaction provided by pingouinvillas is at its best. We were picked up from the airport, driven to out luxury apartment and was helped to get settled in. Not only is this “campement” kept in tip-top shape but... More

Mr Sarif and his son were great, from answering e-mails before we arrived to picking us up at the airport and making sure we were ok during our 3 week stay. Brilliant views from our apartment on the top floor. The apartments are well set up for self catering and had a wonderful lady come in an clean the apartment... More

Mr Sarif was kind enough to pick us up despite last minute change in schedule. He also helped with the groceries on X-mas day when most shops were closed (and stood in the line for me!!). The Apt itself was very clean and had all amenities as listed. The beach is walkable distance and the airport is closeby as well.... More

My husband and I stayed for a week at Pingouinvillas in December. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable with a large private terrace for dining and relaxing. The lovely beach was just a short stroll away. The owners and staff were helpful and friendly. The lady who did our cleaning cooked for us on our last two nights and... More

I highly recommend Pingouinvillas! Very big, comfortable and clean studio with a nice balcony. Close to the beach and Blue Bay lagoon (about 5min walk). Very friendly and helpful staff. Pingouinvillas offers free airport transfer. A fully equipped kitchen and a well furnished living room with TV.

We just stayed for one night and paid for a transfer to the airport early the next morning. It is a 10 minute walk to the sea and restaurants (not many to choose from) which is OK for the one day but we would not want to stay here for longer when we can afford to stay elsewhere on the... More
