Great hotel, I dare say the best on the island! It was newly renovated when we stayed there in July 2014 for 3 nights It was our base to do some excursions in the area: the south and its lava tubes, lava flows and villages. The piton de la fournaise hike etc. The hotel has friendly staff, beautiful rooms and... More

The new beach-terrasse and restaurant located up on the hill surrounding a real 180° sea view is just AMAZING... The food and services are great. Take a time to stay on the roof top terrace to drink a glass of champagne in the sunset... if you're lucky as we were you'll see whales jumping in the bay.

Hotel, staff, people, everything was absolutely great ! I experienced fantastic New Year's Eve here, full of music, dance and food quality. I recommend visiting growers of vanilla, mountain village of Cilaos a volcano Piton de La Fournaise. The big adrenaline was flight over the volcano in a helicopter. I recommend to all.

Although we did not stay at The Palm hotel we had lunch there, called in a few times for a drink and I spent an hour and half in the spar.

The Palm hotel is one of the best place to stay in Reunion Island regarding the luxuary level of hotels on the island. It is big enough to feel at ease yet humanized not to feel lost among the mass. We had a normal room that was cute but not too spacious regarding other customers demand (german/american especially) The service... More

The Palm hotel and Spa in the South of Reunion Island (not far from the interesting town of Saint-Pierre) has a splendid location on a cliff (next to Grande Anse, a former small vulcano and a small, quiet but beautiful sandy beach) overlooking the Indian Ocean with the appearance of humpback whales from time to time.

Hailed as the gem on the crown in the Réunion, this hotel seems to live on its reputation which it does not deserve. To be sure, the location is fantastic, on a cliff overlooking the Indian Ocean, with humpback whales enchanting your eyes with a ballet that leaves you spell-bound, that is if you like whales, of course (but you...
