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...

This is a nice location on the beach, so it's really a shame that the rest is not accordingly nice. Rooms are old fashion and sad. Staff is not so friendly, espesially the manager! There is little to do in the area. Breakfast is only ok. We would not come back.

August 3 - August 13, 2016 my husband and I stayed at the La Mariposa in Mauritius. This little Bed and Breakfast is right on the beach in the beautiful Black River Area. We absolutely loved it.

A beautiful spot with an incredible scenery on Le Morne peninsula accessible by sea (be careful of some shallows here and there). Stayed for 3 days with friends. The self catering aspect suited us completely.

We had excellent stay at la Mariposa in one of the ocean view apartments. If looking for peace and quiet, out of over crowded beaches, it is placed in the best part of the Mauritus coast. The lagoon has cristal clear water, you may swim with delphins near by and relax in quiet area away from over crowded northern parts...

We spent the most wonderful vacation for 3,5 weeks at this place over christmas and New Year. An excellent management with a very friendly staff. The manager sincerly takes care of her guests every day. The athmosphere is familiar and easy. The garden is lovely and neat, so are the apartments! We loved it, and we will come back!

Beautiful location on a quiet bay with a great sandy beach, lovely garden, and super staff. A supermarket is within easy walking distance. For nearby restaurants, we especially enjoyed the creperie. We only wish we could've stayed longer!

Wonderful place to stay at. We had Sea facing room, number 4 on the first floor. Please choose a Sea facing, higher floor room. The lagoon water is just 25 feet from the room. It is advisable to rent a car while staying here. I had booked mine from SIXT car rental and picked it up at the airport. Do...
