Before the visit...
Mr Alex Hardy did a great job in organizing my stay in Mauritius. From minute details to the entire visits he informed me everything in advance..

Upon arrival, even though Alex was not available on site, Mr Gabi the Manager in charge did a great job. All the details of villa was explained to us. the small mobile phone was really handy throughout the trip ( so u don't need any another phone)..

Well kept villa with a beautiful pool. Garden was also great. Each villa has a capacity for 8 persons minimum. Ideally 4 adults and 4 kids.
Safety is maintained.

Nearby Beach is simply superb but be careful with the rocks. You can call it a private beach.
Kids enjoyed the beach and pool very much... Even though we didn't have a beach villa, our villa was really good..

Food tastes good but not extra ordinary.. May be the chef needs to learn some presentation techniques. Barbeque dinner of sea food was good..

But food and groceries are available in the nearby town for relatively cheaper price. It's around 10 minutes walk from the villa..

Alex was always available on the WhatsApp and always ready for help. They arranged a great boat trip to ileaux cef..

On the lighter side- commodes had no water access and no drainage. So may not be suitable ideally for Indian families.
Bring your own soap and shampoo ( toiletries)..
House keeping needs to improve a bit more...

Overall good value for money, great for big families, a lot of privacy, great pool and beach...

Recommended and give a big five star...

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Stylia, We stayed in a beach villa and the view of the sea was worth the extra money, All the villas are the same on the inside – just the garden and views are different – so really any villa is worth staying in, but if you need to see the sea book a beach villa.
The villa is top standard, it’s like a very posh hotel with loads of space. 3 very good size bedrooms and wonderful ensuite bathrooms – all very modern and equipped. The living area downstairs has wonderful furniture a modern and well equipt kitchen. The services on offer from the team of staff are great. The chef will cook and deliver breakfast, lunch and dinner daily – so you don’t even need to cook! His food was very good and the portions huge.
The villa looks out onto the beautiful beach and blue seas. There is a little natural hedge between the garden and the beach and its elevated, so the garden is very private – no one can look in. The private pool was lovely a great way to cool off and the kids loved it. The beach is accessed down the little path and steps. There are very comfy sunbeds and umbrellas on the beach and the beach is fantastic. The beach is wide and very white and soft – the best and only beach in Trou d'eau douce to go to – the other beaches are narrow and rocky . At the end of the bay you can go snorkelling straight off the beach, there is some nice coral and plenty of fish – we saw all kinds of fish just 50m from the shore including – Picasso, zebra, eels, puffers, swords and loads of others in all different colours – we ticked off everyone on our Mauritius fish chart! . Most of the other beaches in the area you need to catch a boat out to the reef, here you can swim to it. It was great and saved us a fortune on boat trips. We didn’t even go to the island nearby as the sea and beach was just so good.
Just remember to pack your own snorkel and mask. The sea is not as flat as some beaches nearby, but this means you can swim, play in the waves – loads of fun for the kids aged 6 & 8 – but maybe not so great for babies.
I really recommend Villa Stylia, the villas are great, the location amazing – but you may want to hire a car to get out and about.

Room Tip: Beach view villas - amazing sea views

I visited Mauritius last year in October. First of all before I start talking about the villa, October is one of the best time to visit Mauritius as the weather is very pleasant.

Coming to the property, right from the time of booking, the owner Mr Alex was very helpful and guided us throughout.This villa is located in the village Trou D'eau Douce which is not crowded and still lively. There are 6 Villas out of which the front two villas are the ones which have the sea view as the villa's garden is just 10 steps from the main sea. So you are literally staying on the beach. The view is spectacular and you can just spend hours at the beach without any worries.

The villa is spacious and well kept. They have a kitchen with all utensils so you can cook anything you want. They also have their own kitchen so you can order food if you like. There is small swimming pool in the villa which is also well kept and you can have a blast in it. Overall a very pretty, clean and charming villa with an excellent location. The clear blue Sea will mesmerize you. Try to book early to get accommodated in the front two villas. Rest of the villas are also equally good. Its just that you have to walk for half a minute to reach the beach.

Room Tip: front two villas with sea view

We spent the second half of our week long trip at Stylia Villas, along the east coast of Mauritius. This part of the island is comparatively less developed than areas like Black River or Tamarin where we spent the first few days. Driving across the island, it almost seemed like we had travelled couple of decades back in time.
With that said, this area is gorgeous and if you're looking for a relaxing beach getaway, it just doesn't get better than this. There's miles and miles of sugarcane farms and a long, beautiful coast.
Trou D'eau Douce is a small, charming town with a smattering of cafes and small supermarkets and the villas are just about a 3 - 5 minute drive from the centre of the town so you are never really isolated.
The villas themselves are beautiful. Though not spectacularly appointed, they are spacious, very functional and comfortable. Each villa has a small lawn and a private pool with a waterfall. It's great to lounge around in and soak in the warm sun. Each villa has a boundary wall so you get a lot of privacy and are almost never disturbed by other guests.
We stayed in a garden villa, but the beach was just a few steps down a beautifully manicured wooden pathway. There's a lot of greenery inside the complex and we were quite taken in by the dwarf coconut trees that had coconuts growing within touching distance.
The furnishing of the villas is utilitarian and quite basic and not very plush or luxurious, which is understandable given that it has more of a beach house kind of vibe. My wife found the mattresses to be a bit uncomfortable, though I did not have any problems.
They provided ample crockery and utensils for cooking etc., however, on the negative side, some of the non-stick frying pans were pretty badly scratched up and probably need urgent replacement.
The fridge was stocked with liquor and some basic essentials, all of which were chargeable and at a pretty healthy mark-up compared to market prices. Nothing wrong with that per se, especially since this is a standard industry practice.
The Lizard Adventure:
Our villa was visited by a lizard on a couple of nights. My wife has a huge phobia of these creatures so I urgently called the management for assistance. On the first night, they promptly sent a security guy who quickly dealt with the problem. On the second night, when it happened again, I called Alex, the owner. His attitude and response was very disappointing and he started off on how lizards are harmless and to be expected in a place like this. I told him about my wife's phobia and the fact that the security guy had dealt with the issue the previous day as well, but he continued to be indifferent and did not ultimately send any help. The hospitality industry is all about ensuring your guests' comfort and meeting their needs without being patronizing. That's one area which Alex would perhaps do well to introspect on.
The Beach:
Stylia Villas has a beautiful location and has access to a spectacular beach that is great for long walks in both directions and offers some cordoned off areas for relatively safe swimming. The waters in this area are very clear and while swimming/snorkeling, we could see a variety of fish which was quite exciting. There's a lot that you can explore in that area.
The Stars:
For people coming from large urban areas with a lot of light pollution, a particularly striking sight is the view of the night sky, densely packed with twinkling stars. This for me was a big highlight of the trip as it had been a few years since i last saw so many stars
Connectivity:
The wifi connection here is pretty good and you get coverage in the entire villa. They also give you a cell phone that you can use to call Alex (owner), Aved (Manager) or Rishi (chef), which is a helpful touch. The only TV service available is Canal+, which is almost exclusively French with a couple of English and Indian channels.
Overall we had a relaxing stay in a very peaceful location and enjoyed nature at its best.

Room Tip: The beach villas, if available, are by far worth the investment

Dear Sir,
First of all, I would like to thank you very much for taking your time to write this detailed and most important, excellent review of our property. It is much appreciated.
Concerning the “Lizard Adventure” I would like to explain our position:
-In a tropical island like Mauritius, it is very difficult to get rid at 100% of all the insects, lizards included.
-For your information, we do have a contract at the villas with one of the most reputable company on the island (Rentokil) to control this situation but we know that although they are good and so are their products, 100% satisfaction will never be reached
-In this particular case, I regret if I have given the impression that it was none of my concern. Our guest and their wishes/feelings are our main concern but sometimes it is difficult to find a solution. I was not present on that night and as you have realized our service starts early in the morning to end after dinner.
The only solution on that particular night was to call – again – the security guard, who I could not reach at last since it was a “replacement one” on that night and then the Villas Manager (Aved) hoping that he would be available on that evening. I could not promise anything, hence what you perceived in my disinterested attitude, but in the end, both the Villas Manager and the security guard came to solve your problem.
Before ending, I would like once again to thank you very much for your extremely well written review on our property and I hope that you have now understand my dilemma and attitude on that particular night.
I hope to see you soon back at Villas Stylia.

Best Regards,

AlexH (Owner & Manager)
