Really enjoyed our stay at Le Recif. Do not expect a 5 star hotel but you can expect great value for money. The only negative point was the timing of the cleaners that cleaned the room. We would be out for the day and the room got cleaned when we get back. Thank you Le Recif and staff for a... More

This has been my second time visiting Reunion. My stay at the Le Recif hotel was average. If I honestly needs to rate this hotel it would be average. The location of the hotel is good. The service at the hotel is ok as I feel they try their best. The rooms is ok although not big. The big turn... More

A good place to relax after touring the east coast and central areas of the island, with the option to explore more of the island like a round trip, exploring the south. Recover in the air conditioned hotel room, at the beach, at one of the pools, enjoy the good breakfast, spend a peaceful evening on your balcony or terrace.

We had a sea-side superior room on the first floor. The check in was very fluent. The room was already vacant at 11 AM. The breakfast was buffet style with a lot of choice (eggs, cheese, cereals, fruit,...) When we where there it was very quiet. There are some good restaurants in the area, even on the beach. We started... More

The hotel was not too bad. Food was a little disappointing however the rooms were neat and tidy. The beach is unfortunately across the road from the hotel through pine trees. Would recommend viewing the sunset though it's spectacular.

I had to move to this hotel after a stay of 7 day in the Lux* (5*****) Maybe because I stayed in a higher class hotel the days before that I was not too happy with Le Recif. Room are rather small as is the bathroom. Pool is good but small (and cold). No service or chairs on the beach.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, breakfast included.

We recently spent 7 nights at this hotel which has an excellent location right on the beach. Our room was comfortable, as was the bed but the hotel is looking a little tired and could do with a revamp. The food in the restaurant was buffet style but rather monotonous and we would have loved more Creole food, tropical fresh... More
