#1 of 13 Speciality lodging in Blue Bay
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.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in Mauritius, where we stayed at Pingouin Villas. The apartment block was situated in a quiet residential area with friendly locals, a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach and close to public transport. The apartment itself was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Mr Ramjan, the owner, was incredibly friendly and helpful; he personally took us to and from the airport and for our first shop at the local supermarket. He went out of his was to ensure we were comfortable for the duration of our stay. We will definitely be going again in the near future.

Personally, i didn't go through booking, as my family did. however they said the booking was simple, and very flexible for both ourselves and for Mr Sarif, which we greatly appreciate! he remained very professional and extremely polite to us no matter what changes and last minute requests we had for him. the apartment was basic, but gave us the necessities we needed, while also being nice and cool in the mauritian heat! The apartment was clean, well-maintained and had a very light and airy design, which was both uplifting and very relaxing. Thanks very much Mr Sharif! We hope to come back soon!

Well situated to Blue-Bay as advertised..Quiet and peaceful to have a well deserved break from all stressful events . The balcony an ideal spot to view the sea,,The yard well maintained and easy access to Mahebourg .Mr Sarif has consolidated both a modern and exotic style to his family business amalgamated with his car rentals facilities located at the local airport,transfers ,pick up and on demand tours in the island. Will visit again this June 2019.

I have made this bookings in February to October. However, when I arrived there the night of the 13th October no one was there to welcome us nor did we have a mean to go in. One of the other guests heard me cry outside in the dark and called the owner, who then told them to take us into a room. I have been emailing the owner for months and up till the day we arrived to confirm but he never replied. The apartment was filthy and not at all like the photos on the website. The mattress was covered in urine stains all over and the sofa bed was totally broken and filthy. I had previously agreed to stay longer than my booking but had to leave after a couple of nights and look for somewhere else. He is very dodgy and took a deposit for a car from me which he never provided. Still no refund. I confronted him the next day, when I showed him all the texts and emails that I sent him, he told me he was abroad, then he told me his account was hacked and that wasn't his number. When I showed him it was the same number as what is on his website, then he told me his staff had messed up. Also there is no daily maid Service but weekly. I wished I had never booked with this guy, he totally takes advantage of people. was also told that he has had previous complains about the bed, months ago but has not done anything about it.

We stayed with MR. Sarif from the 24-29 April. He picked us up from the airport ontime and checked in on us everyday to ensure that everything was ok. He even gave us tips on where to get good local food and the best shipping places. I will definitely be staying there again πŸ‘πŸ‘ Thank you very much for your awesome hospitality. Regards Ahmed
