Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights, my first time in Reunion island. Originally wanted to stay at the LUX Hotel brother hotel of this one but was far too expensive for my budget. Our room was on the ground floor away from the pools and near the parking area which was quiet at night. On entering me and my... More

We stayed in a superior room for 10 nights for our honeymoon. The room was comfortable and while we did not really have a sea view, it was a short walk to the beach. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful and they assisted us with booking activities. We only ate breakfast at the hotel with was good. Beach... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, breakfast included. When we arrived from the airport in the afternoon, a bit flushed and jet lagged , we were offered some fruit punch (a very strong one - hoo hoo!) at the main reception. We were then taken to a brief tour of the premises- very nice dining area, bar, swimming pool- and... More

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

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights on a business trip to Reunion Island (it was my first trip on the island) and the hotel was recommended by the our host office. I am used to Mauritian hotels and I heard that price/service/quality etc were not same as in Mauritius. So I went there already prejudiced. But I was... More

I stayed at the Recif for a week and it was a lovely hotel, very clean, rooms done every day. Good food, Nice pools and right next to lagoon where its safe to swim. Not too noisy or overcrowded, although other residents seemed to be early risers when I was there starting from 5.40AM upstairs to me.

First thing to realise about Reunion Island is that tourism wise is 20 years behind most other places that are well developed tourist locations. It is very reminisent of European locations in the 1980s and up and coming places such as Tunisa and Turkey in the 1990s, so remember this hotel in that context. The hotel itself is quite pleasent...
