We booked 2 nights at this place. We booked two single beds but we're given a double bed. However, the people running the place we're friendly, the room was clean enough. Bed was a little small for two thou. They had a small kitchen area with a small stove. They provide basic utensils for cooking which was great!

The view from the room was amazing! Facing the gorgeous sea. Locating the place was a little difficult, but we had a local sim and google maps guided us well!

The cons of the place is definitely the water supply. On our 3d2n stay, we had a few water supply cuts for a few hours. For the showers, hot water was irregular and sometimes the water pressure is very low. Not too sure if it is only during our stay. Overall, it was a cozy and alright stay! Would recommend if you love the sea view!

We stayed here for a week for same price as a local hotel for one night.
It's situated on the sea front in an amazing location. You could pay a lot of money for this view. It's amazing looking over grand baie and its boats
The lady who welcomed us was brilliant, a local lady who by first impressions must be the most fun person in the country
We got an instant free upgrade to a bigger room. The rooms are ok , a very comfy bed, spacious bedrooms The kitchen had a fridge freezer and cooking stove. The shower worked so that was good enough for us.
This isn't a 5 star hotel, but a perfect apartment close to local beeches and shops
If you do go for Pillay guest house email before you book for even better discounts.
Lovely people cute apartment

Ok, this is not 5 star luxury but the view rivals any 5 star hotel that I have stayed in.

There is no hiding the fact that this place is a little rough and ready, but it is great for the price. We had a private balcony overlooking the sea, on which we had a bbq every night which was very kindly provided by the wonderful people that run this place.

Stay here and you will find yourself in the middle of a Mauritian community (complete with prayer session next door every evening), with families, dogs, friendly locals and lots of other things which will make you smile.

There are caveats with this place - it is not spotless, the furniture, including the bed, is pretty old, and the locks on the doors are a little stiff (we spent three days climbing in and out of the window) but the pluses far outweigh those minor negatives.

All in all, it was highly relaxing, thoroughly enjoyable, and I highly recommend Pillay to you. If you want to be close to the beaches surrounding Grand Baie, but away from the brashness of the centre of town, and you are on a budget, look no further than this place.

The guest house is well located on the beach, close to Grand Bay. The town of Grand Bay is within walking distance. All restaurants, shopping complexes, booking agents for excursions and the public beach are easy to reach on foot. Rooms are comfortable with fans or air-conditioning. Rooms are of different sizes. Some have a living room and well equipped kitchen. The view from the balcony, is breathtaking across the Grand Bay to the small island of Coin de Mire in the background. The landlord is friendly, accommodating all requests from travelers and can assist with car rental or excursions to any of the attractions on the island. Rates offer good value and can be negotiated for longer stays.

Room tip: Some rooms have been refurbished.
