Home away from home!

Posted May 5, 2014
Pros: Privacy, comfort and the location near beach, restaurants; and easy access to public transportation
Cons: The Wi-Fi was slow; was ok for checking your e-mails only.
We really enjoyed our stay at La Pointe Villa. Our three bedrooms bungalow was spacious and comfortable for the five of us. The beach is just 10 minutes walk from the hotel and there are many restaurants and a supermarket nearby, so It was easy for us to cook and eat in when we wanted. The location is perfect for exploring Grand bay or even the rest of Mauritius Island. The Owner, Mr. Georges is very welcoming and will suggest you some interesting activities and tours to add to your program. I will recommend this place to anyone who want a quiet place with the feeling of being in your own place.

LaPointe Villas - Fantastic place and staff

Posted Apr 30, 2014
Pros: The staff were fantastic, especially George who made our stay a pleasure going beyond the call providing us with lots of useful advice
Cons: Nothing. For the money nothing it was excellent
Location: La Pointe Aux Cannoniers turned out to be a small and very quite vacation spot. It is a bit basic,the small local supermarket had everything we needed
We booked this stay through Expedia at a very competitive rate for a weeks stay in Mauritius. Not knowing anything about the island we were a bit apprehensive. However the manager George arranged a taxi for us in advance saving us about 30% with a driver who spoke good English and we later used him for additional transport. The facilities at the villa provided the basic things we needed. Note this is not advertised as a 5-star accommodation. It does however represent excellent value for money. Having seen one or two negative reviews I can only suggest that people need to get a reality check my parents stayed at a 5 * hotel but paid four times the price that we did but they were cosseted and didn't mix with any of the locals at all. George was very helpful, I can't praise him highly enough and took good care to ensure that we weren't ripped off. I was able to book a dolphin watching trip at 60% of the cost of one from elsewhere. When my daughter hurt her leg, he even provided a wheelchair, very thoughtful.

Great place for a family vacation

Posted Jan 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
Excellent place for an extended family vacation in Mauritius. Villas were well maintained and very clean. Free Wi-Fi was a welcome bonus. Kitchenette was fully equipped with all amenities - fridge, microwave, coffee and tea maker, electric stove and a good amount of cooking utensils. The pool was small but very clean. Mont choisy beach is about 15 mins walking distance. Shops and restaurants close by, however all shops would close by 8pm. Paul is the caretaker and he helped us with planning our day trips, arranging for taxis. A big thank you to him for making our stay so comfortable.

Truly excellent villas

Posted Dec 13, 2013
Pros: Peaceful accommodation with lots of birds/flowers. Wonderful staff Spacious, pristine villas Close to local shops
Cons: nothing could be improved
Location: Mont Choisy beach Blue Safari submarine & subscooter Local shops Grande Baie, Pamplemousses & Port Louis
We chose this accommodation for our honeymoon as we were on a budget. having said this, the stay really surpassed all expectations & would recommend for all types of traveller, whatever the budget. Firstly, all the staff were amazing. Mauritian hospitality is famous, but the first class, personal and friendly help received could not be bettered anywhere. The manager Paul believes in providing the best stay possible, showing off the best Mauritius has to offer with practical advice second to none. He helped us organise tours, activities & meals, usually off the beaten track &/or at a fraction of the price it would have been if organised in the UK. Secondly, the villas were always in pristine condition on arriving home. They were light & airy with plenty of space. These are self catering villas, which suited us perfectly as we had the choice to eat out in local restaurants, cook or order takeaway to be delivered -it was completely up to us. The grounds & swimming pool were kept in an equally superb condition. The villas were not directly on the high street, but within 2mins walk of the shops here and 5mins walk to Mont Choisy beach. the bus service is amazing & on advice took short hops to Grande Baie, Port Louis & Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens; all easily accessible. Thank you all very much for an absolutely amazing & memorable honeymoon. We hope to visit Mauritius again and will look no further for accommodation.

Quiet pleasant and secure villas in small village

Posted Sep 6, 2013
Pros: It was quiet and safe, clean and friendly
Cons: There didn't seem to be a system for accepting the free breakfast vouchers I received from expedia not sure why. The kindness shown made up for this
Location: I had a delightful day trip on a catamaran to an off shore island and a personal line fishing experience in the bay on another day.
Staff could not have been more helpful and caring. Freely giving assistance and local advice. As a lone traveller this made me feel cared for and safe. The venue was clean and quiet ideal for the rest en route back home which for me was ideal. Access to public transport was fun M.Paul even escorted me on the 1st few occasions until I got the hang of it. Within distance of the beach and not far from a bigger town for shopping and sight seeing.

Thank you for your favorable comments on the staff of La Pointe Villas. However as regards breakfast vouchers you mentioned having received from Expedia, we failed to understand how this agency could have supplied you with same. We would appreciate if you could contact back your reservation agency to clarify the matter. To set matters right, may we point out that all bungalows of La Pointe Villas are self - catering units. We do in fact supply, for practical purposes free of charge, a welcoming breakfast basket for 2 persons on the day of the clients arrival. We do also supply other necessities such as toilet paper, soap, dish washing liquid as a starter before clients do their own shopping. We sincerely hope that the above explanations will dispel any misunderstanding on your part, and hope to welcoming you again sometime in the near future.

Good location close to beach, restaurants and shop

Posted Aug 22, 2013
Pros: Everything. Clean rooms & pool, very safe - sliding/timed gate, electric fencing, safe in room, good/hot shower, well equipped kitchen, great staff.
Cons: Aside from washing machine, the only other thing missing is an oven. But the two electric plates heat up quickly and there is an additional one.
Location: Pleasant Mauritian restaurant on doorstep (next to shop). More expensive option (Hidden Reef) at 200m. Jog on beach, parasail, eat/drink coconuts!
Even though I grew up in Mauritius, I was keen to chose our accommodation based on independent reviews. Used Tripadvisor which had great reviews for La Pointe Villas. It was so ideal that we would definitely stay there on our next trip to visit relatives. Rooms and pool are cleaned very well on a daily basis. All staff are friendly and always willing to help. Not having a washing machine was a bonus as our maid also provides a handy 24 hour laundry service (at a reasonable rate). I travelled with my wife, 3 children (2, 4, 6) and my mother in law. We did have a car but you could get away without one since there is a small shop, bus stop and a choice of restaurants on the doorstep. Paul will help you with your every need (whether recommending restaurants with discounts or providing an alternative, mobile BBQ and all utensils). He was even up at 05h15 to see us off yesterday!

El Perfecto !

Posted Jun 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was one of the most perfect places that I have stayed on in any of my trips. The Villa was beautiful and exceptionally maintained. The pool is also maintained daily. Security arrangements are top notch. The amenities provided are complete and it is almost like staying in the comfort of your house and enjoying a great vacation. Mr. Paul, who was looking after the property was truly awesome with his sense of commitment (and humor). Lot of beaches and recreational places are close by. Mont Choisy beach is 5 minutes walking distance. Recommend this property over any 5-Star hotel any day!

Welcoming, Caring and Accommodating

Posted May 7, 2013
Paul and Gladys are amazing hosts and can guide you to whatever you need in the area. The hospitality is out of this world! The location is close enough for activities yet far enough away to have serenity you are looking for on Mauritius. Great experience if you are looking for a bungalow!

Nice base for our holiday

Posted Mar 3, 2013
Pros: WiFi, parking, well maintained.
Cons: Kitchen had microwave and 2 rings, but an oven might be nice for self catering.
Location: Convenient, short walk to beach and close to Grand Baie for amenities.
Stayed here for a week. La Point Villas provided nice accommodation in a good location. Beach only a short walk, restaurants and small shops close by. Grand Baie is just a few minutes drive way, providing more facilities and easy access to the motorway to explore the further afield on the island. Paul was always around on site to answer queries and helpfully was able to arrange for us to keep our room well into the afternoon on our last day.
