Everything was very easy to organize with Mr Sarif who is very kind and helpfull, from booking to airport pick-up and transfer. The 3 bedrooms appartment was very spacious and all what we needed for the 5 nights we spent, was there. It was very clean and calm. The closer beach is a great place, with very nice view on...

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

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

“The ground floor rooms could be a bit noisy with people arriving and leaving in front of your balcony - choose the 2nd or 3rd or 4th floor rooms for lovely views, birdsong and more peace.”
