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... More

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... More

We checked in at la Mariposa with our friends and it was amazing. The view from the terrace is amazing and as the weather was fine on that weekend we had an amazing sunset. The sun beds facing the ocean are amazing and the pool is nice for a dip too. We will definitely be back.

La Mariposa offers nice comfy bungalow on a lovely beach. Nothing special about the services offered but the location and scenery is gorgeous. Rooms are clean and staff is polite and quite efficient.
