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 had the best week in La Réunion. We took a trip around the Island and stayed in a couple of hotels around the Island. The best hotel we visted was this one. The service was great, the rooms outstanding, the vieuw, the restaurants... everything was fantastic. If we come back to La réunion we will absolutily go back to... 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

The Alexis is famed for being luxurious and having beach access. It is very nice for such a small hotel and the rooms are incredible. The seating are is good too and walking straight onto the beach is nice. Many people say the restaurant is decent too but pricey. However, it is a bit expensive for what you get given... More

We stayed 3 nights in Le Saint Alexis earlier this month. Good, comfortable room, nice location, interesting design of hotel (the pool almost surrounds the place, like a moat!), good beach, friendly and helpful staff. What's not to like? Well, the breakfast was OK (but only OK). It certainly didn't inspire me to fork out the very expensive restaurant prices.... More

We went in June, off season. After a 10 h flight from Paris a good oriental massage relaxed us. we had a junior suite with jacuzzi in the bathroom. the room was big and the furniture elegant. from the junior suite we could go directly to the pool, surrounding the suites. In the evening they have live music on the... More

Dated hotel with correct personnel however a bit distant compared to other good hotels. In need of repair in different aspects but trying hard to justify the high prices. Most items 20-50% higher than other 3/4 star hotels. Beach nice but dangerous to swim. Bring eater shies if you want to get in over the rocky bottom.

No hotel on the island deserves a four star rating but this hotel was exceptionally poor. Although Le Saint Alexis has a lovely location on the beach it is diminished by the quality of the rooms that are on par with a Motel 6. Service in the restaurant was exquisite but unfortunately it was completely negated by the incompetent, uninformed... More

We stayed one night in this hotel. The room was huge with all the amenities of a luxury hotel and had a nice balcony. The pool around the hotel is very nice. From rooms at the ground floor you can directly step into it. The food at the restaurant was great and the waiter very friendly and professional. We loved... More
