I stayed at Le Cactus, just overnight in september 2016 and more then a week in february 2017. Stayed both in rooms and studio. Rooms are basic and somewhat small but clean and and perfect for someone who spents whole day outiside exploring Mauritius. There is also cozy backyard, situated just meter from sea with nice view to lagoona where...

The pictures depicting the property is misleading. The reception was cold, not what is expected from a guest house. No reception area, instead you walk right into the dining room, which is awkward. My room was exceptionally cramped if not claustrophobic, stuffy and no ventilation. The exit to the road has a massive blind spot, a big risk for accident....

As the owner and manager of this guest house for now more than 32 years, I must say that I am terribly shocked to read such a fallacious and calumnious statement which is in total contradiction with other ratings and comments on trip advisor and other websites. True, the rooms are not spacious but they are designed for doing the...

While planning my trip to Mauritius, I wanted to choose the hotel complying with the following criteria: proximity to the ocean, easy access to Port Louis, calmness and, of course, reasonable price. Le Cactus Guesthouse fully met my expectations. Moreover, its owners Sybille and Jean Luc are...

The guest house is located in the middle of nowhere, you cannot find any convenience stores around or any sign of civilisation. The rooms they provide are fairly big but there are a lot of insects like cockroaches and mosquito inside the room. Furthermore the owners are very inhospitable and will try to overcharge you. I would not recommend this...

Very nice stay at this beautiful quiet place. The owners are very nice and helpful people, whatever you need will be there. A good choice if you just want to stay at a nice place for discovering the island without beeing stucked in a big touristic resort.

I had a lovely stay at Le Cactus. The owners, Sybille and Jean-Luc were exceptionally friendly and offered a personal service. This area of Mauritius does not have a white sand beach, however there are some fairly close by. For the adventurous swimmer it offers great snorkeling at the reef about 200 meters away. There are quite a few urchins...
