We loved staying at this place three times and used it as our base when we travelled to Madagascar and to Rodriguez island from Mauritius. The local beach is about 5 minutes walk away from the apartments which is great. Blue Bay itself has probably got the best swimming beach in Mauritius (in our opinion) and can be quiet &...

Very friendly and clean place to stay at a good price. Pingouinvillas is well located with Blue Bay beach only five minutes walk away on quiet streets. Also, Pingouinvillas has two friendly and good restaurants within five walk of the villas. The only downside to the apartment we stayed in was that there was no where comfortable to sit in...

I have just come back from my Mauritius holiday with my friends and one thing I can say about Pingouinvillas, amazing. The customer satisfaction provided by pingouinvillas is at its best.

Mr Sarif was kind enough to pick us up despite last minute change in schedule. He also helped with the groceries on X-mas day when most shops were closed (and stood in the line for me!!). The Apt itself was very clean and had all amenities as listed. The beach is walkable distance and the airport is closeby as well....

My husband and I stayed for a week at Pingouinvillas in December. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable with a large private terrace for dining and relaxing.

I highly recommend Pingouinvillas! Very big, comfortable and clean studio with a nice balcony. Close to the beach and Blue Bay lagoon (about 5min walk). Very friendly and helpful staff. Pingouinvillas offers free airport transfer. A fully equipped kitchen and a well furnished living room with TV.

We just stayed for one night and paid for a transfer to the airport early the next morning. It is a 10 minute walk to the sea and restaurants (not many to choose from) which is OK for the one day but we would not want to stay here for longer when we can afford to stay elsewhere on the...

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.”
