We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel with a room leading directly to the swimming pool which goes all around the hotel. The room was amazing, very spacious well-equipped and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is the best we had on the island, Look out for the pastries! A real delight! An experience... More

The Saint Alexis is a beautiful hotel, right on the beach. You can hear the waves crashing as you lie down in the sand, the beach is really nice, quite long and wide but you can't swim in the sea thou (too rough). The particularity of this hotel is the pool which goes all round the building, and right into... More

By far the most expensive hotel during our trip and by far the most disappointing... The staff and service are awful (they should all go to a training at la Blue Margouillat at Saint Leu !!!) Of course the pool is lovely and immense.... but this doesn't compensate for all the negatives (small and outdated rooms, again awful service, overpriced... More

Negative points: super expensive..wifi super slow, almost unavailable... the lobby needs renovation.. service can be much improved... staff... More

Interesting architecture (island like), delicious food (great mix between Creole and French cuisine), nice outdoor breakfast restaurant with view to the beach. The rooms are spacious, in colonial style. Nice beach, but going for a swim in the ocean is not smooth and quite difficult when there are big waves, due to the rocks in the water and strong ocean...

Staying at the hotel right now. I came here to chill out for a few days while my husband is hiking. - Hotel is nice but far from what I was expecting. It definitely needs a good refurnishment. Getting quite old... Stuck in the 90's - Wifi is too slow. No chance to watch a movie or even open videos... More

Wonderful small hotel on the beach. Most of the reviews below cover all the main details - the excellent swimming pool (where you can actually do some proper swimming), the beach front access (beautiful white coral sands though you do need to walk up the beach for safe swimming), the very welcoming and relaxed nature to the place. At first... More

We stayed at Le Saint Alexis for 3 nights in September 2013. The hotel is located on Boucan Canot beach in Reunion - a true beach hotel with sun-loungers right on the sand. Very friendly and helpful staff welcomed us with a refreshing drink at the beach-side bar and allowed us to unwind and relax before showing us to our... More
