Mr Sarif Ramjan was particularly helpful, waiting for me at the airport and accommodating on my renting of an apartment even though I was travelling alone. The apartment is regularly serviced, clean and spacious with all required amenities for a family stay (even though I only used the fridge). It's only a very short, tranquil walk to Blue Bay's public... More

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

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
