We visited this hotel for a day in December. It is beautiful, light and airy, modern and clean with friendly staff. The entrance is beautiful with an immediate view of the large blue swimming pool and indian ocean, framed by green lush palm trees. The service is efficient and the staff very friendly. We had an amazing meal at lunchtime... More

We had the hotel to ourselves plus only one other guest, but this did not lower the standard of service. The staff were friendly and there when you wanted them. The rooms were spacious, clean and had a nice bathroom with an excellent shower. The food was very good, but the menu was limited because there were only three guests.... More

We were met at the airport by two friendly staff who spoke good English and welcomed us to Ile St Marie. A 10 minute drive and we were at the hotel and sipping a free cocktail from a coconut while they sorted our book-in details. The hotel is clean bright and modern and has 24 hr electricity and no restriction... More

We returned after 10 or so years to find that Soanambo has been fully refurbished and redone to a much higher standard than it was then. It's now now an internatioanal level resort that, it's true, could be anywhere as an earlier comment says. Before it was much more worn on the edges (rust on bathroom, willing but inexperienced staff,... More

This is a great hotel, especially during low season when the hotel is virtually empty and the staff will basically wait on you hand and foot personally. The positives are the atmosphere and environment, the staff, the food and bascially all the services offered. The negatives are that there are only 6 TV channels and ALL are in Fench,but i... More
