Cheap & Cheerful, good location
This is a great place to stay in Mauritius if your happy with a basic level of service, i.e. good comfy beds, clean room, decent shower. This is not a 5 star resort but then its not pretending to be. Did not have any problems at all - check in was smooth with Eric. Gave us a room on the 3rd floor, so carrying luggage was a bit of hassle. Rooms were cleaned daily and beds made, very helpful and cheerful cleaners. Managed to leave a few nights early and got our refund directly from the owner (Eric) . His wife is also very helpful. They run tours/excursions from the shop down below, but shop around locally for best price and negotiate.Location was great as its right next to the SUper U and mall small mall with cafe's/take aways etc so food not an issue, even a McDonalds and all of the places in Grand Bay. Did not use the car park so can't comment. Would recommend for the budget traveller.

Everything in order
The reason for my visit was business. I was looking for somewhere to lay my head at night that also provided a space for me to work without being bothered. The Monalysa Apartment that I secured was very satisfactory. The wifi service was perfectly workable, the apartment was clean and overall at the price I really can not complain. The only thing I would have liked was a shower handle that I did not have to hold. The location was perfect as it was within walking distance to all major points in Grand Baie. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. If you are looking for somewhere to use as a base and are not concerned with sea views, then this is a great deal.

Good budget family apartment in Mauritius
It was good value for money. My family enjoyed entire stay there.

5/5 Excellent

Happy face iconLiked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Great location and good space for the money
The apartment had 2 bedrooms, and a living area with sofe, kitchen and dining table, balcony and shower room (no bath). It was basic but clean. Check in was easy - the office is downstairs (and operate a tour/excursions business). It's right in the centre of Grand Bay. Grand Bay itself is a tourist town, with restraunts, bars and shops. Big supermarket 5 mins walk from apartment. There's a public beach 3 mins away, but its more like a harbour and not great, however, you can walk all along the beach front to better beaches on the ocean. I stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the space of the apartment (more than in a hotel) and the location was great. There's no pool and its not a great place for say a weeks holiday, but I'd stay for a night or so if I want to be in Grand Bay.
