“GREAT VALUE, SUPER FRIENDLY STAFF AND AWESOME SUNSETS”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Together with friends, had such a great time, here, our apartment was in front row facing west, sunsets and Le Morne , super friendly and efficient staff, clean comfortable and well equipped apartments.
great breakfast , by the pool or to be enjoed on your own balcony
we had barbeques every night right on the equippement supplied on the beach and sat under that beautifull tree well into the night
the only downfall was, we did not have internet availibility for three days, most annoying as we all had some work to do , due to our business back home
Merci annabel and Dweena, I have recommended your spot to many friends and you will be seing some soon
One other observation, the beach right in front should perhaps be sweept daily, as some litter does wash up overnight. And there is too much of this on your beautifull island .

Room Tip: the sea facing ones up front, but all others have some sea views

Rented a house in La Preneuse through La Mariposa. Great hospitality, nice house with a beautiful garden and just a few meters from the beach!

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at this property at the end of a 3 week stay in Mauritius. We had a reasonably priced two bedroom unit (100 Euro) which was literally a stone's throw from the water. The unit was comfortable, clean and very suitable for young children. The property is run by a friendly and professional manager who was always very approachable. La Mariposa has a nice little pool for the kids, a delicious continental breakfast and a breathtaking view of the ocean and La Morne.If you are looking for a good value hotel in a stunning location, then you can't go past this one!

What a fantastic holiday we had off-the-beaten Track at the La Mariposa B&B in Tamarin, Black River on the East Coast.
Its a small, quaint hotel with about 15 rooms, all with a small kitchenette. This allowed us the freedom to choose when & what to eat, as eating out is pretty pricey. The local supermarket is a short walk away from the hotel so its an added advantage when you do want to get your own provisions. The rooms were serviced daily (except sundays), and a simple but delicious Continental breakfast provided, which gave us the feel of a hotel.
There is direct access onto a strip of beach which is pretty private and has some interesting snorkelling.

The staff were relaxed & friendly & I didnt feel like thier were a whole list of 'house rules' that had to be adhered to.

Highly recommended if you want to avoid the busy overpriced resorts of the North.
