Very nice accommodation”
Very nice accommodation with nice and friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay but there was one thing that made our check out and end of the stay very unpleasant. The gusthouse organised a shuttle to the airport at 6 am in the morning for us but this shuttle never showed up. We were waiting for 30 minutes outside with two little kids and as the reception wasn’t opened at 6 in the morning we had to rush to another hotel to ask for help. We arrived at the airport 45 minutes late and with two little kids it was really stressful and unfortunately not pleasant at all.
Chantauvent has an ambience that one doesn’t experience too often in this commercially driven hotel business. It comes down to the staff and their dedication and politeness.(thank you Christiane) Francoise(manarger) and his team do an excellent job keeping this place going. It has seen better days and badly needs refurbishment however the personal approach and calmness of the staff helps to cover up the cracks. Above all it’s right opposite a living healthy coral reef. I spent 2 weeks there and snorkelling everyday .It was a treat to see healthy living corrals in the Indian Ocean! I left there feeling very positive and recharged.And so did a couple of friends. Something special here?
The staff are super friendly.location very near to the blue bay public beach.can easily get a taxi and bus nearby.the view of the beach just beside the guesthouse was really amaizing and breathtaking..enjoyed a good sunrise view in the morning!! Really recommend to stay here
Perfect for honeymoon”
This guesthouse is highly recommended for a real feel of Africa. The location is exactly next to the Blue Bay beach and just 10 minutes drive from the airport. Parking is provided. Breakfast was excellent, and please have your breakfast outdoor facing the beach, its a superb view. For Muslims travelers, just take note that the owner do have a pet dog at the reception & dining area. No worries, the dog is very friendly.
Rooms are run down and in dire need of a refurb. In a word: tired.”
Although staff were friendly the rooms were very rundown. Cracked plasterwork, rusty leaky roofs, old dilapodated furniture, a broken safe, mouldy windows...etc... Family Apartments: beware as they are across a busy road and not on the beach...which itself isn't up to much. Breakfasts are so so. Must pay extra for eggs if not happy eating overcooked hard-boiled ones provided.
Don't ruin your vacation!”
This property is completely deceptive in its advertisement of listed rooms. We booked a "sea view" room with Wi-Fi, flat screen TV and private entrance. NONE of this was true! First, our "sea view" was completely blocked by a huge tree - we had NO sea view! Second, the Wi-Fi only worked in their lobby, third we did not have a TV in the room (we didn't care, wouldn't have used it anyway) and lastly there was no private entrance. Plus the room was dirty, and the 'pool' was located across the street, was tiny and right in front of an apartment they rent out (which they do not mention in the description is across the street and not on the sea-side). We also met a family that was totally scammed - they rented the apartment which they were not told was across the street, it also had no TV, but worst of all it smelled of MOLD as soon as you entered. This property should be taken off of Agoda because they are not representing their rooms or property accurately. SCAMMERS!!!
The room was really lovely and has everything you need.Really recommend to stay here.
Cheap Hotel in a nice Spot”
To me this is a Guesthouse not anywhere close to a Hotel Staff were friendly, but the accomodation at a very low standard
An amazing stay”
I loved Chantauvent Guesthouse from the very first beginning. I stayed at a four-star resort in Flic en Flac and it sucked. So I booked Chantauvent guesthouse just the night before but was so happy that I did so. The room was really lovely and has everything you need. The facilities are just wonderful, with a lovely garden. The front yard connects directly to the beach and the water. I took a nap on the beach just right in front of the guesthouse and had an amazing stay. Even though it was only 1 night, I wish I could have had another week there. It was very convenient to walk to Blue Bay, a few hundreds metres away. And a nice restaurant too. I would definitely come back to Chantauvent Guesthouse if I come back to Mauritius. Thank you for being so nice.
Good value for money”
The room we paid for was adequate to what we expected. We didnt need anything else. Hotel provides possibility of renting kayaks or whole stuff for snorkeling what we really enjoyed. Breakfast was good but I definitely can not imagine to eat sweet breakfast for a week or so, but for 2 days no prob. For those, who hate sweet breakfast (like me), there are eggs, butter and cheese. The only thing we were told but not happened was changing towels everyday - nobody changed it, but we stayed in Chantauvent Guesthouse only for 2 nights, so it was not a big deal for us. Overall experience was really good.
Francois was very friendly and very helpful. Could prob do with washing up liquid and clothes in self contained rooms. Also maybe supply manual for guests to use cook top. Other then that brilliant..
Good Location as a stop over from the North as it is close to the Airport. Location is good, on the beach and on my next visit will make sure I allow time for some snorkeling as the reef is on the doorstep. We stayed in the Garden suite when we arrived and on departure from Mauritius we stayed in the Sea facing rooms, the beds were far more comfortable in the Sea facing room.
Very good snorkelling in front of hotel where there is coral and also close to beautiful blue bay swimming beach. It is great to have the choice of either snorkelling and/or swimming in the beautiful Blue Bay? We have travelled around mauritius and have found lueVay to be the best location on the island. The staff namely, Wendy, Hans, the Manager, Ruksh and ai, JeanLouis and Bryan the cooks are all part of a friendly and happy team who work hard and are very welcoming at all times. The breakfast is buffet style and the coffee is good. You can choose to have your evening meal there or eat out. On one occasion we were taken free of charge in a taxi to a superb.rwtuarant in the nearby town of mahebourg
Lovely place to stay”
Better be f you can afford to stay on the seaside for a true seaside experience. Breakfast and dinner very good, friendly staff, lovely grounds, Wendy booked us in and she was very welcoming. Jean Louis cooked us vegetarian food which was delicious especially the choix-choix salad he made us as we're vegetarian. THe garden rooms are quiet .definitely recommend this place if you can afford that little bit extra. blue b At is generally expensive but the nearby Mahebourg town is funky and works with a good market for food ad clothes and restaurants.
Amazing service. ”
I stayed at Chantauvent with my mother for 2 weeks. When we arrived they tried to change our booking, realizing my mother would struggle to walk up the steps. Mom was brave, so we declined. Breakfast was amazing, and as a nature lover I appreciated the staff feeding the birds instead of just chasing them away. Snorkeling was great at the private beach, just be careful of the strong current. On our first Friday there, they arranged a cocktail party for all the guests. Most of the guests were French, so we could not chat along, but both the manager, and the wonderful Brigitte kept us company. The local Mauritian food was amazing.... And the punch had PUNCH. Thanks to all the staff, cleaning, waiting, reception and even gardening for making the trip special for my mother. We appreciate it a lot.
Good place to stay with sea sand and stars”
Some staff could be a bit more friendly during breakfast. Greeting guest with a smile will make the service a lot better. The facilities mostly is good but the hot water sometimes it doesn't work. Overall is good. Keep it up!!
Beautiful 2-day stay at Chantauvent”
My wife and I managed to book only a gardenview unit, and were pleasantly surprised when we were assigned a seaview unit on arrival. We had breakfast in our own balcony, which is just next to the restaurant. There were lots of common sitting areas around.
Good Location, Budget facilities”
Its very near to the blue bay beach. You can easily walk along the beach & reach the main blue bay beach area. So thats the best part about it. Sea facing rooms offers nice view. The pet dogs roaming freely in the guesthouse were of some concern initially. Overall a nice stay.
excellent hotel 2 mins. from beach”
This hotel is 2 mins. From the beach and 15 mins. From the airport. The planes are quite noisy but there aren't many, so its not a problem. The hotel is really good, especially if you have a garden room. There is only 1 restaurant in blue bay but the hotel does evening meals, which are quite good. The snorkelling here is excellent. Great hotel to start or end your holiday for a few days, due to its location to the airport.
comfortable and friendly ”
it was homey. i like the hotel as a whole. but the room decoration is very simple. so if u. r expecting something luxury this is not ur choice. the staff r super friendly and lovely. its a good experience.
