Le Capitaine Tourist Residence Reviews from the Web

Liked: Local feel  Disliked: Nothing
Eitel Kruger
Liked: Nothing the tv promised was not working no wading machine

The owner fm ray is a rude person  Disliked: No pest control lots of ants

Coskroach in kitchen

Liked: If you go to Mauritius for a break, and you are not the all-inclusive or fancy-hotel type, this is a good place for you. It has ha good backpacking atmosphere, and feels genuine. I had the kitchen and terrace for my self some nights during the cyclon period, and later i had one very nice fellow traveller there. All in all youre well treated by the family that runs the place, room fan and shower works fine, room is spacious, and the sea is close by. If you know the secrete rout to get down to the water, the long strech of beach where locals go to fish, and to hang out is just 4 minutes away by foot. Also bus stop, wich take you to Port Louis main station in 20 minutes. However the place is situated in a villa neibourhood, buses stop 6 pm so if you want to go elsewhere late, its your own vehicle, a taxi or a favour by the hosts that you need. If you have your own car, this is the perfect base for a genuin exploration of Mauritius! If not, prepare for some nice and meditative late hours at the lovely terrace. Not bad either!  Disliked: See above.
Customer review
Liked: astonishing value for money. you need transport which she rents out very cheaply. It was so cheap, we could stay elsewhere without asking for a refund, as we wanted to see and stay at other places also.

Peter and sarah feb 14  Disliked: no aircon and noisy room fan.(not ceiling)

Customer review
Liked: While Mauritius is not a backpacker destination, Le Capitaine was the perfect backpacker post. A short, easy bus ride to Port Louis and a three-minute walk from the ocean, the location is pretty prime. The rooms are spacious, with private bathrooms, and the kitchen is very convenient for storing food or cooking meals.  Disliked: The neighborhood dogs are relentless in their barking at night! But they ease off and you stop noticing, really. The room isn't spotless, but if you want that, drop 300$ a night at one of the tourist hotels.
Customer review

stella wittmann
Liked: If you need a base for the north of the island - this has to be the best on offer. You probably need a car, but for the price we paid was fantastic value for money. We expected little for the little money we paid, but had an ensuit room and Fatina, the owner, has a shop below to cater for you and the use of a kitchen. It was great fun here, and Fatina has to be the nicest person. She goes out of her way to help you at any time. Thank you!  Disliked: Eileen left no negative feedback.

large room

Customer review
Liked: Very reasonable place to stay, good room twin with two double beds and en suite with good shower. Very friendly people, relaxed, good atmosphere, handy shop downstairs, very reasonable proiced cold beers. Clost to very large supermarket. Would recommend to rent a car to explore the island properly and the very reasonable room rates makes this possible. The airport pick up was a god send after a long flight. Would return if I was visiting Mauritius again.  Disliked: Thomas left no negative feedback.
Thomas Mahon
Liked: Slightly random place - building in the shape of a boat! Has a shop attached which is useful. Is kinda in the middle on nowhere, there is a limited bus service to get you places, but would recommend hiring a car.  Disliked: Matthew left no negative feedback.
Matthew Hudson

Location and Contact


• Some people, who are not too much loaded and have time ahead of them,once outside the airport, just walk some 500 metres and wait on the unique bus stop, with shelter, after the round about to wait foir a bus.This bus takes them directly to the city centre of Port Louis and and the trip might take some one to one and a half hour, as it is in the other hand and of course the transport is much less than what they would have paid for a taxi.
• Once in Port Louis, you walk to the northern bus station and you catch the tombeau bay bus, tell the conductor to drop you on the football pitch of morcellement swan, at Saint Malo. Take the inside road along the football pitch, walk some 50 metres and as the road turns left and we are at the corner of main road, 2nd road on the left.Just ask the local people where tourists usually come and there is an onsite shop.(Residence Lecapitaine)
