Recently stayed at La Mariposa on the Mauritian west coast. Beautiful island and a great holiday marred by unacceptable accommodation at this hotel. The beds are very old mattresses on solid wooden boards. The unit sleeps 4 but there are only 2 chairs in the lounge. Manager and staff were unconcerned. Worse still is that I lived in Mauritius for...

My husband & I enjoyed a 4th visit to our favourite venue in Mauritius. From the amazing venue which is chilled and home from home, to the pleasant and helpful staff,(from cleaning staff, gardeners to management) all whom could not do enough to make our stay comfortable and memorable. It's a perfect place to chill and relax, especially if you...

We had a great room, big veranda with superb sea, mountain and garden views. The amenities within the room were all that we required,basic but very adequate for what we needed. Breakfasts do get a little much of the same, this is understandable due to current space restrictions and having to serve all the visitors in relays to get fresh...

One of the most beautiful sea views in Mauritius, lovely beach, stunning sunsets. Mediocre service, rooms very basic. Could be great! Closing down for revamp soon, will be a full-service boutique hotel from 2018 - here's to hoping the service will match!

The view and being on the beach scores 100%. Unfortunately the self catering we stayed in is extremely out dated, old fashioned and not comfortable. The beds extremely uncomfortable and all suffered from sore lower backs. Pillow cases that were too small for the pillows. Hard chairs on veranda. Purchased our own mugs and cups as only four of everything...

My family & I are currently staying in a ground unit with sea views...Mother Nature gets a huge 10 out of 10 for the sea views & beach....sadly the accommodation gets a miserable 1 out of 10 from us! No comfortable chairs to sit on and the mattress on the beds is so hard, you'll be lucky if you don't...

5 of us Singaporeans stayed in La Mariposa early Feb 2017 for 10 days and it is our group's consensus that this property is an excellent holiday home for us. Corrine and Annabelle, the property's managers, are very friendly and without fail Corrine would be there every breakfast morning talking to us and other guest as well. The property is...

You can seek out traffic and congestion or find relaxation and fun on Mauritius. We drove through the congestion of one of the newer tourist areas one day and decided we did not need any of it. La Mariposa is comfortable, clean, and very well located. The management and staff were friendly and attentive. It was hard to find La...
