This is definitely a budget hotel but the rooms are clean and there is a fantastic view on the roof. The owner/manager is a very friendly fellow though I suppose he can come over as a bit grumpy, however he is actually very helpful and got up early to cook me breakfast and drop me to the hotel. Mahebourg looks... More

The appartments are only 20 minutes from the airport. They have a great open deck with sweeping 360 degree views of Mahebourg where you can comfortably have your breakfast and all meals. Hussen is a unbelievable taxi driver and a most helpful person who displays true passion for his birth place, Mauritius. His botanical knowledge is outstanding and I learnt... More

This is a great little guest house for anyone wanting to sample a more homely atmosphere. Tyvabro presents basic rooms with all the necessary amenities, AC, en suite etc If you don't like basic rooms, this is not the place for you, but if you like simplicity and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff then Tyvabro is excellent. It is situated... More

Overall, it was excellent. Host was extremely helpful and friendly - Could not expect any better from the owner. Helpful, and willing to get up early and make us an earlier than scheduled breakfast when we had a flight to catch! Most places would send you on your way with an empty stomach. Thanks for this bonus! Views from top... More

The guesthouse is on a worn backstreet, with a noisy workshop next door. The guestrooms are ok, but the rest of the house is stuffed with things and not in good order. The owners live on the bottom floor and there it is rather messy. The place does not give a good impression and does not feel cosy. Our AC... More

We wanted bids on a transfer from Mahebourg to Grand Baie and had read good reviews on TripAdvisor about the owners of Tyvabro also having a taxi service. We dropped by Tyvavro guesthouse and met John, who gave us the what turned out to be the winning bid. While we were there he took us on a tour of his... More

The place may seemed a big chaotic in the beginning but then gradually I have started discovering how perfect it was. This is small family run guesthouse, rooms are decent with all amenities you can imagine (AC, fan, DVD player etc.) There is common area with books, DVDs and small kitchen. The atmosphere is perfect for relaxed travel and the... More

I stayed at Tyvabro 3 nights recently and had a wonderful time. It's run by a very welcoming local family, some of whom are taxi drivers or work with local tourist agencies - so they can be really helpful in arranging things to do on the island. They served a great big breakfast every morning on their beautiful terrace on... More

Originally wanted to stay at Holiday Inn, but the price of $150 per night didn't sit right with me. Saw this guest house - at $50/night it's a great alternative, basic, clean, feels like spending overnight with friends in Mauritius (local family owns the property). At first not easy to find - no street signs, had to ask passersby. Great... More

Very calm and nice place to stay in Mahebourg. Near to the bus stops and supermarket. We liked to have breakfast at the top of the house with beautiful view. We booked a taxi driver who was the son of the proprietor. He brought us to the must see places of Mauritius and was very helpful. It was very good... More
