Nice, quiet, clean and modern bungalow in a tropical garden; each bungalow has a tiny garden closed by high fences and the bungalows are in a larger garden with two rarely used small and nice pools. Hibiscus bungalow was very pleasant (would not recommend frangipani bungalow, where I first got allocated to, since there was no decent windows); very kind and helpful employees. Walking distance from beach and village of pereybere.

As a family with 2 teens who require a separate bedroom each, Gardens Retreat very early was a favorite regarding options for our 3 week stay in Mauritius / Pereybere during Juni/July; based on earlier reviews, little could go wrong choosing this option.

We ordered the largest flat at Gardens Retreat, and from our point of view this is a modern flat with relatively high standards and deserves it's 4 star rating.

Positive:

Large modern flat with everything you need for self catering
Spotlessly cleaned every day by 2 lovely ladies
Lovely garden gardened daily
2 baguettes on your doorstep every morning
Good service

Improvements:

Garden could use some serious trimming regarding tree line, there are some very large trees that basically took all the sun from the pool area after noon which makes the use of an otherwise nice pool area a bit limited

Some boards in english with instructions on how both dishwasher and washing machine is used would be helpful (we got he hang of it eventually), not all of us are fluent in French.

We were a bit dismayed when there were only french channels on the sat TV, men discovered after 4 days that there was an internet based solution with lots of english options; why on earth were there no instructions / notifications for this option?

The WIFI options should be password protected, I never like entering the web on open solutions; we "solved" our needs by using an external WIFI solution brought back form home.

Negatives:

Our flat was on the groundfloor while the owners (I think) vacate the 1st floor, this comes with a fair amount of domestic noise which should have been stated; we still would have rented the place knowing this fact as part of the package, but always nice to know in advance.

The place is a bit plagued with the owners noisy dog vacating outside who seemed to be allowed to bark at any given time during the day, not sure though this was as much a problem with other units

The place has a neighbor with 3 relatively large dogs who barked fiercely every time we walked pass them (which you need to in order to get to the flats); I'm used to large dogs and pretty much ignored them, but to many they might very well find this behavior a bit intimidating...

Conclusion:

Nice hidaway place in Pereybere suited for people who want to avoid the hustle and bustle of hotels. Giving it a 4 * review with some improvements to make, but still highly recommended and definitely an option again for us on our next trip to Mauritius

We stayed at Gardens Retreat for 6 nights.

The apartment far exceeded our expectations. Great with kids, nice pool and very modern fittings in the apartment making it feel like you at a top quality resort room.

The apartments are a 5minute walk to peyerbere beach. 3 minute walk to the bus stop and 5 minute drive to la cuvette beach. There are 2 grocery shops within 5minutes drive.

The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and very attentive to ones needs.

We would highly recommend Gardens Retreat!

2nd time that we have stayed here. Nothing was too much trouble. Cleaning staff are efficient and friendly, apartment has been kept spotless. The owner made sure that everything was OK on our arrival. Pool towels a plus, as was the use of a washing machine. They sorted our airport transfers and hire car while we were here. Bread is delivered fresh every day. Bbq provided, private garden and patio for each apartment

The location is a little further from the beach than we expected but not so far as you need a car. That said it meant we got a bit of exercise going into town so the restaurants could be sampled with less guilt.
We stayed in Hybiscus which is a single bedroom bungalow with a lounge and kitchen. All the appliances were of good quality and reasonably new. The bed was a super king size so no catching each other’s sunburn. The shower was a power shower with a rain head and handheld. The towels were changed when we wanted and were of a good size. They supply hand towels, flannels, and pool towels. The maids are cheerful, chatty, and appear to enjoy their work which they do thoroughly each day. They will do your laundry but we were happy to use the washing machine and hang our clothes on the dryer then iron it ourselves. Everything supplied.
Outside the patio had 4 chairs a table and a barbecue with access to one of the two pools which had loungers around it. The pool was cleaned twice a day.
To sum up Gardens Retreat is a clean, well maintained, facility run by friendly helpful staff who make it their goal to please.
We would recommend to anyone. We will return.

Staff are very friendly and polite. Rooms are kept very clean and well equipped. Nothing is to much trouble.
Each bungalow has its own patio and bbq and is fenced off from neighbours. Pools are kept very clean. Towels are provided including pool towels.
Very good value for money

Our stay here was simply amazing.. we arrived the first day and the greeting was very nice.. They toured us around the house and explained every single detail! Its a very nice home with private terrace and sharing small swimming pool. Its a place where you can have some nice barbeque outside.. The house was very clean and tidy.. It has all the required equipments in the apartment from iron to every single kitchen tool. Highly recommended place.

Is there an iron provided in the apartment?
Rockville, Maryland22 contributions8 helpful votes
There was one also in the apartment we stayed in back in April 2015 (Bois Mapou - 2 bdrm). I'm pretty sure there is one in each apartment, including an ironing table. Ours was neatly placed in one of the the main bedroom's closet, along with the table. Great place! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and shall return.

Is there money changing on site
Rockville, Maryland22 contributions8 helpful votes
I am fairly certain you can change money either on site (only the most mainstream currencies though - USD - Euro). However, it is probably wiser to change funds at the airport when you arrive, or at any bank. Unlike many other countries, the exchange rates are pretty much the same all over the island. If you absolutely need to make sure, you may want to call Georgina, the onsite manager (Tel: (230) 269 0132 - Mobile: (230) 5778 6129), to obtain quick and precise responses to all of your questions.

Is there a safe in room or available . Is the water ok to drink?
Rockville, Maryland22 contributions8 helpful votes
Yes, there was a safe in our bungalow (Bois Mapou - 2bdrm). Not sure whether the tap water is safe to drink, but our fridge was already stocked up with two bottles of water when we arrived and then we picked up packs of water the next day. Just to be safe, I wouldn't drink water from he tap, but that's just me... Otherwise, Garden's Retreat was just great for us. Very clean and comfortable (the bungalow we were assigned is either fairly new, or was recently repainted and refreshed as everything was spotless) The only small inconvenience is that the place is alittle out of the way and walking on the main Peyrebère road is somewhat daunting as there are no sidewalks to speak of... and people drive fast... We did not have any problem as we always rent a car on our trips to Mauritius, which is not well equipped for pedestrians... Voilà! Have a pleasant stay!
