Fresh and different salads, tasty burgers even tastier than meat, satisfactory portion size, all served by friendly staff. Value for money, worth the try, will definitely visit again. I recommend this place
Vanilla village is top to stay at black river, Mauritius!! Nice resort, clean rooms, cheap rates! The breakfast is amazing! Best ice tea we ever had! Burgers are top! The staff is very friendly and helpful! Shure we will come back for another visit! Thanx for all!
What an awesome stay, great value for money, great food and fantastic environment accompanied by accommodating hosts. Would highly recommend this venue. Whether business or pleasure you will appreciate all on offer
Huge congratulations to Vanilla Village, the kids play area is very cool and the new menu is outstanding. We love the addition of the vegan menu, you really are spoilt for choice. The menu is fun and offers good hearty meals at a great price. Definitely one of our favourite breakfast spots.
apart from really good food, it's a lovely location under the trees be sure to visit the supermarket for some lovely surprises the staff is very polite and friendly, it is a definite must Great place for children
It was our second time at Vanilla Village, we had a lovely time there. The breakfast was delicious with good service. Really friendly owners and staff. Vanilla Village is now our favorite spot in the east. We will come back again really soon!
Place although is on West coast is very far from any supermarket or restaurant nearby. Not that safe to go walking to the nearest restaurant because that's 5 Kms away. Apart it's only breakfast so if you want this property you should bring with yourself plenty of eatables to not starve! Cleanliness is an issue at the breakfast area as there are lot of ants and flies nearby pestering the clients. Pest control is not taken seriously at this place! Many spiders roaming around the place as it is in the nature so if you have any fears avoid this place! Complimentary water is also not served. Only served on the first day which is not really expected as what is a right to every person doing that with water seems petty. These petty issues can make someone frustrate! Staff leaves the premises by 3 and you are all on your own! Any emergency at night and there's no one to contact even in cyclonic times so that's a problem I believe because it's an unknown place and someone should be there as a backup at nights! Please bring private transport as you can't rely on the public one because there is almost no transport to Riviere Noire and you have to change two buses and maybe not the wisest option considering you abroad and in unsafe surroundings as the place is isolated! freely mongoose has been spotted and when complaining only get to say that's it's normal and the mongoose don't fall into traps so we cannot do anything about that!…
Dear the owner of the Vanilla Village, Of course we have noticed that in Mauritius people have a lots of to learn about tourism, how to serve tourist in the best way, even you don’t like to serve us...But... Anyway, unfortunatelly the service was very bad in Vanilla Village. Waitresses looked so bored. We want to give ten points for the cleaners, but the other staff members zero. We felt not welcome even we didn’t complain or we tried to behave very nicely etc. The idea of the village is great, but it just doesn’t work. The area is very boring and there’s nothing to see. The price is way too high for this! Now I say this in North European taste. The price must to be much lower.
It was 6 years ago when we first visited this place (aka Vanilla Beans) and they have done up some of their facilities. They now have a small stage and nice 3-piece band that provided nice acoustic music and songs over a Sunday brunch. Will be back again in the future.
A beautiful place with a serene and calm atmosphere among nature . A great getaway from city chaos . Great experience and perhaps the best said an example for what a home stay is all about . We stayed there for the 8 th time and we still love this place aimed for relaxation . Very neatly maintained property and courteous staff .The chirping sound of birds was a welcome way to greet morning during vacation . Very good breakfast .Nice pool with a relaxing lounging area surrounding it with a large parking area . My only complaint is that there is no hairdryer provided in the room which is one of the basic amenities these days .
