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 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

We have just had a wonderful 3 week holiday in Mauritius. We live in Perth, Australia, and spent the first week at Pingouinvillas. The 3 bedroom ground floor villa was ideal for us as we have 3 children including a 6 month old baby. Sarif, was most helpful and hospitable, and provided a campcot. The weather was great, not too...

I have stayed twice in this place because I found it from far the best value place on the island. The building is set in a calm street (except for 2 crazy barking dogs from the neighbour) very close to the see and with beautiful views from the top on the hills and sea. The apartments have lovely terraces (with... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Pingouinvillas located in the residential tourist area in Blue-Bay, the South-East of Mauritius Island. It is set-up in a small tropical garden full of exotic flowers under the shade of coconut trees encircled by cool verandahs bordered by fanciful balustrades. Pingouinvillas enjoys an exceptional peace where only the chirping of birds disturbs the calmness in the morning and the area is harmonious with its tropical flora and fauna.Blue-Bay is 5 kilometres away from Mahebourg: a historical village and one of the main fishing sites on the Island. Pingouinvillas is within 200 metres (3 minutes walk) from the Blue-Bay beach which is the most popular seaside resort in the South of Mauritius with its fine white sand and its peaceful turquoise lagoon surrounded by coral reefs. Pingouinvillas is accessible within 8 minutes drive from the SSR International Airport. ... more   less
