Very friendly staff and owners, and also other guests. I find unusual to say that the other clients were quite nice, but this appeared right away. Many guests come back every year, with their family and friends. Good points also to: swimming pool, garden, games, recommendations about things to do in the island. Very convenient: you can rent bikes at... More

It takes a lot to make me go anywhere a second time but that is what we did. That is how good La Desirade is. So good in fact we took others with us. Once again wonderful rooms, clean and cool in the heat. Lovely pool delicious food. Our hosts, the owners, are so good at what they do it... More

First time on Belle ile en mer, but it won't be the last. Particularly if we're able to stay at La Desirade again. In short, this is a fantastic hotel offering outstanding service and quality. The rooms are well thought out and comfortable. The pool area is lovely, a really tranquil haven. The on site restaurant is fantastic, local produce... More

A lovely friendly happy hotel, beautifully presented rooms, top location, delicious dinner and owners who are genuine and make the effort to say hello and take the time to talk. A rare commodity in the world today. Don't hesitate to book a room at this lovely hotel - you won't be dissapointed.

The first hotel in which we felt really at home. It's cosy, well-maintained and super clean. Owners are very hospitable and go out of their way to help their guests. Breakfast and dinner are of superior quality, and then there is the island.

We loved this hotel on the beautiful island of Belle-Ile. The owners are as charming and welcoming as reported in other reviews. They speak perfect English and are always available to help with anything you need. We hope to return to Belle-Ile and will definitely stay here again.

We received a warm welcome from the reception staff and the delightful owners made time to talk to us and every guest at breakfast and at dinner every day. Our room was on the ground floor of an attractive bungalow set in well maintained gardens. We had a large and attractively decorated bedroom with a very large bathroom with walk-in... More

We stayed three nights and loved it. The owners are charming and went to great lengths to ensure our comfort and happiness. The hotel has a quiet location but is a short bicycle ride from lovely beaches and other sights. The breakfast buffet is outstanding.

This is where the French go to be out in the country and relax in silence. It's heaven on earth. The Saragasso current warms the place, and the beaches with their "Cotton" fluffy waves are where Monet painted 37 of his masterpieces. You want to stay here. And savor the country quiet and the black skies at night.

Lovely and tranquil setting on the beautiful island of Belle-Ile-en-mer. La Desirade is perfect for folks who seek an outdoor vacation of hiking, biking, ocean swimming, and breton-crepe eating. The hotel is impeccably clean and nicely decorated in a maritime motif, specific to Island. The restaurant is great too--fish, island lamb, and locally sourced veggies. Wonderful service by a multilingual... More
