This is a really picturesque, peaceful spot most of the time. However on Friday and Saturday night until 5:30am the next morning the pumping bass of Big Willys nightclub intruded through my earplugs. At first we were told it was a wedding, but locals said it was normal. The room is comfortable and light with a deck right on the... More

Very nice place to go. Personal is very friendly and helpfull. A car or scooter is necessary but is also possible to book there. The breakfast was very delicious. A beach is just 200m away and it is possible to walk to tamarin at low tide. A kayak is at the hotel and can be used for free.

Beautiful setting on the river side with large garden, close to nature: I was reading books on the hammock and my husband was running after red big crabs on the river side:) After delicious breakfast most guests usually left and we were in the garden by ourselves. It was great we had a rented car - there are no restaurants... More

We stayed at the River House for 3 nights in the Suite. We were very warmly welcomed by Angela and a member of her staff. The room was nicely decorated and in dark wood which gives it a lot of charm. The private river terrace is very nice and we have to admit that we spent one rainy day sitting... More

I chose this guesthouse based on the TripAdvisor reviews and I was not disappointed! I was only in Mauritius for two nights on my way home to London from Madagascar and I could not have chosen better. I arrived very late but Angela immediately made me feel at home. My room was in the main house and in the morning... More

In the case of River House the heading of this review is definitely true. Host Angela is not only very welcoming and accommodating but also extremely knowledgable. She understands foreigns/tourists but also has a long history with Mauritius (due to her family). She is also an active communicator in the time between booking and arriving which was really appreciated. The... More

What an amazing, peaceful and beautiful place to stay. Lovely garden at a river, only minutes away from Tamarin Beach. We loved every second of our stay and will definitely try to come back one day. However, a car is advisable when staying here as there is nothing really in walking distance apart from the beach. Still, we loved it.
