A review of Athena villas.
I spent 2 nights at athena villas with my family. We booked the 4 bedrooms apartment via marideal.com for 9 persons @22,000. The price on marideal.com was lower than on booking.com, however the package on marideal could only be purchased by Mauritians.
I located the villa via Google Maps, and it was about 3mins drive from Grand-baie Super U. The location is not very close to the beach. The closest public beach is around 8mins drive.
When we arrived at our apartment at around 12pm, fruits and juice were placed in the kitchen.
Here are some pictures inside the apartment :
The breakfast served each morning was quite generous. We got a basket full of delicious pastries.
The negatives were that the TV sets were outdated and of poor quality. The TV in the master bedroom had no channels or was not configured. Else the pool was quite small, not adequate for swimmers, but only for relaxing. It can be heated. Unfortunately we got our heated pool the morning we left since the heating process stopped due to an electricity cut.
I used my DSLR to take take some shots of the villa at night :
We also got access to Evaco private beach during our stay. The beach is not in pereybere but in Trou aux Biches, which is about 10mins drive from the villa. Free transport is available as well. However for Mauritians it was unnecessary as we always have the opportunity to go to any beach. We only made a quick tour in our own car just to see the location and instead maximised our stay in the villa.
