All the way from Cape Town South Africa! Recently my wife & I visited Mauritius for a two week holiday. My wife and I stayed for a two weeks at Pingouinvillas in Blue Bay.

Our group (3 of us) stayed here for 2 nights . We had a first floor unit that included 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, sitting area, and patio. The unit was very large/spacious, clean, and included basic necessities (dishes, towels, etc.). We stayed in mid-August; the area was very quiet which was nice. There is not very much to... More

First, the email communication is excellent. We contacted the Pingouinvillas in a Sunday night for a morning noon airport pick-up. And indeed someone held our names on a sign. The apartments are close to the airport and require less than a 15 minute drive. Light sleepers beware: long distance jets pass the building till about 23h. The apartment is huge... More

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
