“Unforgetable Christmas and New Year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

It is no place for loners, but those, who enjoy meeting new people, new culture and those willing to experience Sandy's flawless, multicultural cuisine will find it perfect.
Sandy, Rajen and Athena, thank you for wonderful Christmas and New Year! See you soon.

Hello Anna & Zbyszek,
It was so wonderful to have you with us this last Xmas. And share some heart warming sunshine with you. We hope to see you soon. When It is frozen in Poland think about all the good times we shared here in Mauritius.

Love

My 10 days stay at Sandy's Pallagino was one of the most memorable one ever...!! I felt as if I was at home.. Mr. Rajen and Mrs. Sandy guided me where and how to go around... I felt as if I was a localite staying in a FIVE STAR HOTEL!! When u can stay in a reasonably affordable place like this then why not.... I would suggest everyone to go to Sandy's Pallagino and enjoy their stay with delicious food and a homely atmosphere...!! My personal ratings are FULL FIVE STARS!!! God Bless.....

We have been to Pallagino for 3 days only, and we already feel at home. Great food prepared by Sandy as a bonus, We have canceled our reservation at the other guest house in the north and decided to stay here for remaining 4 nights. Maybe one day we will come back with our big boys and their family.

Room Tip: We got the Greenwald room, with a private balcony

Thank you Sophie to take time and post these comments, you will agree that 3 nights at "Pallagino" is really too short. Next time stay longer, and try my many other dishes.

All the best.

I had a lovely three-day stay with Sandy and her family. The room was nice and the villa is located 2 minutes walking distance from the beach and 5 minutes from the center of Flic en Flac. Sandy spoiled her guests with a fascinating Mauritian dinner every night whilst Rajen told some interesting and funny stories about Mauritius. I did the dolphin swimming tour with him and other guests and enjoyed a very nice BBQ on the Ile aux Benitiers, highly recommend it! You share the table with other guest and the lovely family. Breakfast is simple and tasty and you serve yourself from a buffet. If you are looking for a nice and authentic place to stay, go to Pallagino and enjoy the excellent food and company!

Thank you Sophie, for these kind words. As you noticed 3 days at "Pallagino" is like going thru a transit lounge at Dubai Airport. We look forward to see you soon for a much longer stay to discover/enjoy more local authentic dishes and hospitality of Pallagino.

Stayed there for six nights and were satisfied with nearly everything.
Sandys meals were very delicious (try the Curry Chicken).
We had the Honeymoon suite. It is a nice room with ownbathroom and own balcony. Unfortunately there is a big construction site just next to the house.
The house is close (2mins to walk) to the very nice beach and also to the town centre.
We made a tour into the south with Rajan, which was very good. Try to go the Vanillerie, it is a intersting nature reserve.

We had a very pleasant stay of 10 nights at the Pallagino, enjoyed a lot the company of Sandy, Rajen, Kingsley and Athena for their warm welcome and interesting discussions, and of course the lovely home made cocktails and gastronomics dinners ! The environment is fine and the house is only 3 minutes walk from the large and heavenly beach of Flic en Flac (on the other side on the main road). The accomodations are fine with Wifi, AC and TV in the upstairs living room, although the bathrooms would need renovation and swimming pool cleaned which I mentionned to Rajen. Rajen made us visit the island's hotspots and we really had good time. If you do not expect a 5 stars hotel with sea view and like friendly and family atmosphere, with the luxury of chef dinners, this is THE place in Flic en Flac to go ! We will definitely come back.

We agree with you 100%, as we informed you during your stay, the bathroom in question was due and budgeted for renovation and upgrading...We have completed these renovation and I am sure that you will find it to your liking on your return visit.
The pool is clean everyday, unfortunately as it is an open air pool, strong winds do give us some problems from time to time by covering it with leaves/flowers...however if requested we do remove them again during the course of the day, for you to enjoy good dip/swim.

We went to the Pallagino in December 2009 and we went back in November 2011!!
We love this place and the family. You always feel like at home, except that you don't make any food, no washing up and no cleaning ;-)
The house is very well situated; the beach is at 5 min walk. The beach is beautiful, huge and very long. We usually go near the Pirogue Hotel, about 15min walk, where it’s really calm and the sand & water is extremely clean in that area. The beach next to the center of Flic en Flac is nice to, especially because you have all the mini vans with nice local food (and not expensive).
The first time we went to Pallagino Rajen drove us a lot around and it was really nice to visit the island VIP wise! This time we went back just to relax and to have some good food...Because Sandy really make some delicious food..love all the samosas, the fish dishes, curry etc so many good things that I took on at least 2 kilos!!!
Basically, it's the best place to go to discover Mauritius in a local way. It’s not a 5 star hotel with waiters all over and European food, but the pallagino has nice simple rooms well decorated, there's funky cocktails and great food. And especially, the family is super nice, always ready for a drink and a chat + very helpful. Big bisous to Sandy, Rajen, Kingsley and Athena!!!
