Mauritius is expensive? Yes and no. Basically, the price level on the paradise island is comparable to Germany. If you want something nicer (but also no luxury), which is best with my low-budget recommendations. Your search for cool guesthouses, apartments or hotels in Mauritius with and without children will (hopefully) stop here:
WWe are two weeks on Mauritius individually with the car on the way and stay in three different accommodations. I love to find special locations that are still affordable! Here you can find our hotels in Mauritius and my recommendations in the respective region for under € 150 per night for a family of four! These range from apartments, a house or bungalow on the beach to Airbnb:
Hotels in the north of Mauritius:
Around Grand Baie in the north of the island, the choice is almost endless. Our criteria are the proximity to the beach, a pool or by the sea and that certain something:
Our accommodation - Bleu de Toi in Pereybére
My favorite place in the Bleu de Toi Guesthouse is the chill-lounge in the nice garden. Everything is totally sweet with attention to detail in a shabby chic look. We drive directly from the airport in about two hours Grand Baie, Here the guesthouse is located on the main road between Grand Baie and Pereybére a bit back from the street. Very inconspicuous between two construction sites, we suddenly land in another world.
The outdoor area with many vintage furniture and colorful colors inspires me immediately. The garden is lined with palm trees and you are in a small oasis. The pool is large and nicely laid out and our kids are happy! Even the inflatable crocodile is allowed in the pool. There are two construction sites next door (March 2019 as of March), but that does not bother us, as we are always on the move during the day.
The main house has several vintage-style rooms. Ours is in 1. Floor with large balcony overlooking the garden. There are two rooms, one with a double bed and the second walk-through room with a pull out couch for the kids. A small bathroom with shower connects here and air conditioning is also available.
Completely new were the garden apartments in the back of the grounds surrounded by greenery right by the pool. I really wanted to live here, but unfortunately everything was already occupied. Next time! The price includes a small breakfast with tea or coffee, fresh fruits, baguette and yoghurt with cereals. Egg dishes cost extra. To relax, you can book a massage, which takes place in a small pavilion in the garden. Cost about 40 €.
One runs 5-10 minutes on the main road to Public Beach from Pereybére, We love this beach with its little booths and the many locals! Besides, that is Bleu de Toi a perfect starting point to the various beaches in the areaas Mont Choisy and Grand dormer or to the botanical garden in Pampelmousses. Grand Baie With its many bars and restaurants, we are in 5 minutes by car and there are three large supermarkets just around the corner.
Price per night for 2 adults and 2 children in family room incl. Breakfast approx. 115 €
Le Beachclub right on the beach of Preybére
Originally I want to live in this small hotel on the beach, but when I want to book, the apartment is already gone. We see that Le Beach Club on our beach day at Pereybére Beach after all from the outside and the location is really perfect! The sweet apartment hotel is located almost directly next to the public beach on a small stretch of beach. The interior is modern with a small kitchen and breakfast is included in the price.
There are several units, either with direct sea view in the main house or then with partial sea view or only garden view distributed on the premises. The interior is bright and modern. If you are looking for something close to the beach and at reasonable prices in this area, then you are in good hands!
Prices from approx. 140 € per night incl. Breakfast in the apartment with side sea view for 2 adults and 2 children
Mont Choisy Beach Villas at the south end of Public Beach
The location of these beach villas with their own kitchen is unbeatable. I'm a big fan of Mont Choisy Beach and these duplex apartments with sea views and pool are located at the south end of Public Beach. You may have to walk for ten minutes and there is no sandy beach directly at the property, but the price is really unbeatable. The resort is probably a bit old, that is probably the only downside ... If you spend most of the time anyway on the beach, I think that is not quite so tragic.
Prices from about 105 € per night in the duplex apartment with two bedrooms and sea views for 2 adults and 2 children
Bel Azur Beach Residence by LOV south of Trou aux Biches
Great apartment complex with chic interiors right on the sea! There is a beautiful infinity pool and several units with a kitchen and living room with sea views. The downside is, that also here not really nice sandy beach in front of the door is and you after Trou aux Biches about 5 minutes to drive by car. But the price-performance ratio is right! We decided only against this accommodation, because we really want more in the north ...
Prices from about 115 € per night in a two bedroom suite with sea views for 2 adults and 2 kids
CocoNuts Bungalows at Grand Baie
I fall in love with the search right in this bungalow complex right on the beach in a beautiful garden! That's how I imagine Mauritius. Unfortunately, all the houses are already booked for our appointment, which is not surprising. But those who are early enough may have a chance. This find is in principle exactly between Grand Baie und dem Pereybere Beach and does not have a pool, but sea view! The decor is rather simple, but still very loving. There are different units from small to large. Good luck!
Prices from about 110 € per night in a two bedroom villa for 2 adults and 2 children
Hotels in the southwest of Mauritius:
In the southwest, we are not looking for long, because our choice is directly fixed. The alternatives are honestly very expensive and the location is not so ideal, as we are after Le Morne wollen:
Our Accommodation - Villa Seewoo in La Gaulette
After about two hours by car we reach our second accommodation in Mauritius: the Villa Seewoo. This beautiful guesthouse is quite inconspicuous in the residential area of La Gaulette something raised on a slope. From the outside, it looks like a normal villa, but after the entrance gate we expect a haven of peace with pool and palm trees!
We just park our car on the road and we are greeted by Elfie, Sanyai and Team. We are guided through the entire area and receive lots of tips for the area. Elfie is from Austria (and most of the guests too) and her husband Sanyai is a Mauritian.
There is a main house with several rooms with balcony and sea view right by the pool. There is also the breakfast terrace. At the pool there is a sweet tree house for two. Next door were further apartments and a family duplex apartment expanded with access to the pool. All in all, a cute, winding area overlooking the sea from most apartments. Attention: there are many mosquitoes!
Our two rooms are right next to each other in the 1. Floor in the main house with a bathroom and shared balcony. This is definitely the highlight with a view over the Le Morne Brabant. Everything is Iceland style, with dark furniture and colorful walls. There is also a fridge with dishes and a kettle. The rooms are very clean and spacious and every day a little surprise awaits us on the bed with petals! The love and warmth will be in here Villa Seewoo scary big.
We unfortunately do not have our own kitchen, but we are allowed to share the kitchen on the ground floor. There is also a really nice breakfast buffet with everything your heart desires! Fruits, cold cuts, cheese, egg dishes, pancakes and cappuccino, juices and tea. Everything is included in the price!
La Gaulette itself is an authentic village by the sea only about 10 minutes to the famous beach of Le Morne. There is a large supermarket and several small shops and restaurants within walking distance. The Black River Gorges National Park and the seven-colored earth can also be reached in 20 minutes by car. Also the wild beach of Tamarin.
We stay for five nights and could have experienced much more. Definitely the most exciting region in Mauritius for me! Once we book a dolphin tour with Elfie by boat and a dream comes true for me, as I am allowed to swim with the wild dolphins!
Price from approx. 135 € per night for us Four in two double rooms incl. Breakfast
Aparthotel de Tamarin at Tamarin Beach
Nice apartment complex with pool and sea view just south of Tamarin Beach. The equipment is a bit simpler and a bit â € œold schoolâ €, The apartment has a kitchen, two bedrooms and a terrace with sea views. The beach right outside the front door is a bit rocky but the beautiful, wild public beach of Tamarin reachable in just five minutes by car. In this area a nice and affordable accommodation!
Prices from about 125 € for a two-bedroom apartment for 2 adults and 2 children
Airbnb Filaos Bungalows in Flic en Flac
I am looking for a lot before our trip Airbnb, but I think nothing really perfect. Just this two-level bungalow with three bedrooms and kitchen with sea views and only a stone's throw away Flic en Flac Beach away. I like this area very much here, only the said street and the missing garden have disturbed me here a bit.
Prices from approx. 120 € per night for us four
Hotels in the southeast of Mauritius:
For travelers on a budget There is also a good selection in the southeast! Last minute we book our house on the beach booking.com*:
Our accommodation â € "Villa du Lagon between Point â € šd Esny & Blue Bay
To be honest: I fell in love with this simple but beautiful house by the sea! The French owners live in the same area and are really nice. The housekeeper comes every day and clean (and would cook for us for an extra charge).
The decor is simple but with maritime flair and coziness. We felt at home. Everything is clean and the location is really perfect! You do not have a direct sea view from the garden, as you are a bit back at the smaller of the two houses, but it is only about 50 meters to the turquoise blue sea! In total there are two villas and a small apartment for rent.
This little house by the sea is right on the Coastal Road between Blue Bay and Point d'Esny. You have to drive through a large, electric gate and then come to the area of Villa du Lagon, There is a small yard for all houses. Including the owner's house, the large villa at the front of the beach, the small house we live in and an apartment in the back of our small villa.
Our house has its own entrance and you enter the large kitchen with all the bells and whistles. This is followed by the open living and dining area with a beautiful table and chill-furniture in the conservatory. From here you can access the veranda and the palm-lined path to the sea! On the ground floor there is a small guest toilet.
On the upper floor there are a total of three bedrooms and two large, colorful bathrooms. Everything very generous and bright. The rooms all have a view of the sea! One bathroom also has a bath and shower, the second only a shower. So there is everything you need!
The beach is almost deserted and you can see beautiful bays right and left and wonderful snorkeling! Do not forget water shoes! You can go from here to Blue Bay Run or drive 5 minutes by car. Mahébourg is also just 10 minutes away by car. Just around the corner is the really good restaurant Blue Bamboo, The planes do not really bother us, my son is rather enthusiastic;) For this we need on our departure only about 15 minutes by rental car to the airport. Really a beautiful patch of earth, if you do not expect / need luxury.
Prices from approx. 140 € per night for us four
Otentic Eco Tent Experience on the east coast north of Mahébourg
My personal highlight in Mauritius! In these eco tents on the east coast about 30 minutes drive north of Mahébourg I want to stay overnight! Unfortunately, children are allowed here only from 6 years, because the construction and environment is too dangerous for smaller children. There are two tent camps, one on the mountain and one down the river. There is also the typical Creole kitchen and a small area for get-together and pool. The Eco Tents are not on the beach, but you get every day for free for a few hours on the fairytale Ile aux Cherf driven by boat - super cool! Definitely a different way to stay in Mauritius!
Price is 150 € per night for a tent by the river for four people. The longer you stay, the cheaper it will be ...
La Hacienda in the interior near Mahébourg
This tip I get from my girlfriend, who has traveled twice on Mauritius individually. A simple, small bungalow complex with pool and sea view in the middle of nature a little above Vieux Grand Port and only about 10 minutes from Mahébourg away. The view of the surroundings is breathtaking and the small bungalows are very romantic! A little hideaway in Mauritius! Unfortunately, there is no more Villa for our appointment with 2 bedrooms ...
Prices from about 100 € per night in a two bedroom villa for four people
Chantauvent Guesthouse Blue Bay
Only about 500 meters further away from our beachhouse towards Blue Bay is this simple, but nice apartment complex also directly on the sea. I'll lend us a SUP once and take a closer look at the location. There is a small restaurant, a pool and several bungalows / apartmentsbut not all with sea views. Overall, everything is very quaint, but right on the sea and breakfast is included!
Prices from about 150 € per night for a garden duplex apartment for 2 adults and 2 children
