We were completely happy with our stay at Villa Authentique. The room wasn't the biggest one, but it was very clean and had a big bathroom. The staff was very friendly and I loved the fresh juice with the breakfast every morning. The restaurant of the hotel surely is one of the better ones on the island and it has... More

We stayed at Villa Authentique for three nights and while we enjoyed our stay in La Digue I wish that we had chosen another hotel. On arrival, after a 15 minute wait we were showed to our room up on the first floor. There is a slopping ceiling in the room, which made it seem very small, there is a... More

I booked Villa Authentique 4 weeks ahead. When we arrived, they mentioned that they had a overbooking but would relocate us to a good place. 30 minutes later, the transfer arrived. I can not complain... we were relocated to a place much better than Authentique (we were luck the other inn had just opened and was empty...) And I met... More

We stayed for one weekend at Villa Authentique in La Digue. The hotel is located very close to the harbour of La Digue and it was easy to find. Friendly staff and very clean rooms. The room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was excellent! They also served a big and tasty breakfast every day and freshly pressed juice.... More

Wow! I was impressed with this place. I booked 3 nights and decided to stay one more. It was that nice! The location is perfect, only minutes walk from the harbor, but along a quiet enough stretch of road. The room was super nice. Strong aircon, great balcony to relax, and comfy bed. The bathroom was clean and had a... More

Due to a flight cancellation we arrived 1 day later to Ladigue. Thank you so much for the warm welcome of the staff! We forgot all trouble when we entered the building. This was a perfect base to explore Ladigue and surrounding islands. We even got upgraded to superior room and 1 day was refunded. The rooms were spacious and... More

The restaurant of Villa Authentique is called Refle de Zil. It's located at the first road on your left coming from the harbor. Various delicious mails for a good price. But only when it's crowded you have to be patience, but it's worth waiting for. All freshly cooked.
