What can I say about this apartment in Flic en Flac other than wow?
This place absolutely made our holiday....the location is great as it's walking distance to the centre of town but far enough out not to be disturbed by any noise.
The penthouse itself is huge, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The star feature is the massive terrace which we didn't want to leave. Every day we relaxed and enjoyed the amazing sea view, every night we sat in the plunge pool watching the sun set.
A slight mix up with our original booking meant we had to switch to a beachfront apartment for our last few nights and that wasn't a patch on the penthouse so it's definitely worth stretching yourself if your budget allows. The mix up was dealt with professionally though and we were compensated with a lovely pre-prepared meal which was delivered to the apartment on the night of our choice.
Anyway, overall, i can't recommend this place highly enough and we would love to return some day!
Beautiful part of the island, spacious and well-equipped appartement in a private compound with large terrace, ocean view and direct access to the shore, friendly and efficient staff. Impressive choice of excursions for a 2-week stay, both at sea and on the island. But there's an issue with communication and information: we had to re-do an excursion because we had not been informed about the site's closing time beforehand, incurring in additional transportation and driver waiting-time costs. We encountered similar issues later as well, so there's room for improvement in this department.
Otherwise we had a pleasant and satisfying stay!
Me and my family, three people, have rented one of those penthouses for 10 nights in July (middle of the Mauritian "winter"). First thing that comes to my mind when thinking of Cap Ouest is the magnificent view we had from the apartment, as well as the incredible amount of space (the penthouse comprises about 190 square meters, including the large, panoramic view terrace). The entire apartment was extremely clean. The weather was great, and we recommend visiting Mauritius during their winter, as the sun is just powerful enough to get a nice tan, but not to burn your skin.
The entire location was guarded day and night and the staff was friendly. The swimming pool in front of the property was always clean and not at all busy, but the water was colder than the sea. The BBQ grill on the terrace was also great and made our life a lot easier.
As for the downsides, there were indeed some things that could (and should) be improved. They took our fridge and brought a smaller one, because the big one has broken. The microwave didn't work until the 7th day.
The biggest downside was the breakfast, which we don't recommend buying because it is poor, not cheap and is prepared in your own room which is very intrusive.
We also strongly recommend renting your own automatic-geared car for the entire stay, as the taxi is expensive, the location is quite remote and the steering wheel is on the right.
Overall, we greatly enjoyed our trip to Mauritus and we look forward to returning next year. The good parts of the property clearly outweight the bad parts and we can warm-heartedly recommend you to go there and enjoy the breath-taking landscapes,great activities and immense cultural riches this island can provide you with.

From the moment we arrived at our apartment the service was second to none. All the staff were attentive, friendly and dedicated to ensuring our stay in Mauritius would be as enjoyable as could be. We stayed at one of the Penthouse suites and the standard of accommodation was outstanding throughout. An incredible beautiful view across Wolmar beach and with only a view short strides you can be dipping your toes in the ocean! A large well furnished private terrace with your very own plunge pool, ideal for cooling off during a hard day's sunbathing! The complex is attractive with well maintained gardens and large swimming pools and if you prefer the sea it's right on your doorstep. Well located for local shops and a few restaurants but if you want a more substantial shop the Spar in Flic en Flac is only a short taxi or bus ride away. You'll also find quite a few bars and other shops there too. We were planning to move to another part of the island for the second part of our holiday but so loved this place we decided to stay longer. Fortunately for us there was a vacancy! Possibly the best holiday we have ever had and I think it would suit young and old alike. Would love to go back again.
