We were here on a 4 night stopover en route from Perth Australia back home to the UK. The phrase 'pieds dans l'eau' couldn't be more apt - our studio apartment's (which cost less than your average English B & B) terrace was about 6 feet from the beach! Buffet breakfast, included in the price, was served on the edge...

My son and I stayed here on a recent visit to Mauritius to go deep sea fishing in nearby Blackriver. Mariposa was recommended by the outfitter. The staff was friendly, helpful and easy going. I liked the fact that our room opened to the beach and ocean. I enjoyed a few beautiful sunsets on our balcony. The cost was reasonable/affordable....

If you prefer smaller, unpretentious structures this is ideal. It's one of the few smaller places actually on the beach and it's also particularly convenient with several restaurants and a good supermarket within walking distance, which for me is not very far in the heat. The staff are really helpful, the rooms are quite large and all come with separate...

We spent half of our honeymoon at La Mariposa. It is beautifully situated directly at the beach. We booked a sunset apartment, which was equipped with a kitchen. The apartment was clean and spacious and our terrace was only steps away from the beach. We had a rental car and La Mariposa was the perfect starting point to tour the...

We are a family of four adults who spent 3 nights at La Mariposa. We had two adjoining, fully-equipped, spacious apartments on the ground floor within a stone's throw of the wonderful, clean beach with a magnificent view towards the Le Morne mountain. The setting here (right on the beach, with beautiful gardens) is superb, the staff friendly, the breakfast...

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at this property at the end of a 3 week stay in Mauritius. We had a reasonably priced two bedroom unit (100 Euro) which was literally a stone's throw from the water. The unit was comfortable, clean and very suitable for young children. The property is run by a friendly and professional manager who...

What a fantastic holiday we had off-the-beaten Track at the La Mariposa B&B in Tamarin, Black River on the East Coast. Its a small, quaint hotel with about 15 rooms, all with a small kitchenette. This allowed us the freedom to choose when & what to eat, as eating out is pretty pricey. The local supermarket is a short walk...
