If I could give White Oaks Villas Mauritius more stars I would It’s excellent , transfers / pick up on time, and helpful , villa itself well equipped, spotless ,cleaners helpful and cheery, pool wonderful , Gardens well kept, a totally relaxing couple of weeks with friends and that’s what we went for. Couple of annoying things if I had to be honest , kids large blow up toys should be banned from pool and not left in there to float around it spoils the glorious ambience of the place ....... we unfortunately picked a couple of weeks when it was school holidays in other countries so lots of babies and young children who were a bit noisy....... luckily we went exploring the island during the day and didn’t have to put up with noise for too long before they were put to bed in evening.
Nitty gritty things we learnt ...... you need a car to see this amazing island ......
Not many local restaurants in area because there are lots of resorts around with tourists who eat at them as meals included, therefore there are very few restaurants in this area to eat in if you don’t want to cook for the odd night ! Be prepared to drive to Grand Baie.
PoPo supermarket up the road has everything you need .
You definitely can’t swim in beach at bottom but can just up a bit in resort area .( Beach towels here by the way no need to bring )
Don’t drive anywhere near Port Louis at peak times !!! Traffic believe it or not horrendous!
Nothing to buy here really, tourist stuff expensive I was going to take some vanilla pods home but they were £12 ( you can by them at home for £4 )
All in all a wonderful island, fantastic relaxing stay and villa , would I come again definately but not in school holidays .
Thankyou White Oaks, you were amazing and we’d be back in a heartbeat truthfully the nicest villa we’ve stayed in, it will be hard to beat, wherever we decide to go next year,
