Nothing exceptional, not bad but not great, we can easily find much better for this price, the place is not new and it is visible, very basic, small bedroom, it doesn't look like a paradise at all, it looks cheap and it is expensive, for an hotel located on the beach at saint-gilles the potential is not used at all,...

This really offers great value in Reunion. The rooms are the right size for two people, not to big and not too small, just right. There are two pools to choose from and you can through the gate to the public beach. There are shops and restaurants nearby as well as the casino and nightclub, if that is what you... More

For South African travellers, this is an expensive three-star hotel which needs to be dragged out of the 80's - tired and shabby décor, below average breakfast, basic bedroom. The hotel is old and needs some attention. Access to the public beach is through a security gate and across a road. This is not a Mauritian hotel beach paradise experience... More

Lives up to its three star rating. No nasty surprises. Friendly staff. Well situated with direct access to the beach. Rooms are a decent size and had all the expected amenities. Tv was tiny though. Had a very pleasant stay and will recommend it.

Nice hotel area at the beach, friendly smiling staff. A place to relax. The reataurant and bar had good standard and good food. Our room was average, needs to be renovated. WiFi all over the hotel, but very unstabile.

We arrived at about noon, the end of a 23 hour journey, where we were completely ignored on arrival. When we checked in, it took a while and the staff would choose others over us. When we arrived at the room, it was very small, and dark. The free internet let one person at a time on it, and was... More

The hotel has a very pleasant atmosphere. We had a nice welcoming smile by the front desk staff.The room is very clean,only with some moisture in the bathroom while needs a bit of painting.. The garden of the hotel is the main asset to have a pleasant moment and breath a cool air... The two swimming pool is very clean.... More

I spent 8 days in February 2013 with my daughter of 5 years old in this hotel. The location of the hotel is great, close to St Gilles and to Hermitage, parking provided, beautiful setting next to the beach, very pretty hotel and the individual rooms are great. Airconditionning works perfectly. There are many families with children, so my daughter... More
