This morning we took it easy, washing some laundry in the sink, working on my laptop and enjoying the view out the terrace doors. A little after 11:00 a.m. we drove over to the Prodigues' house once again for a lovely lunch and a continuation of our conversation of yesterday. Jocelyn asked especially for any advice or suggestions we had that would …
Today we were ready to go at 09:30. This little hotel is right on the lagoon and the views of the water from our room were entrancing even with the rain squalls that blew through periodically.

TravelPod Member ReviewsCoco Villa Mahebourg
Nicely located on the water this hotel gives good value for money. It doesn't cost much. The rooms are acceptable with air-con (in season) and plenty of hot water.

Parking is minimal and sometimes complicated. But the views are fabulous, it's located within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
