We stayed 4 nights there, clean and spacious room with air conditioning. We had homemade breakfast and dinner by Dorothy, very tasty and prepared with love. Rodrigues is very quiet place not touched with civilization, so nothing for party people. But beautiful beaches with clear water overcome everything we ever seen.

I cannot more highly recommend Kafe Marron and a stay on beautiful Rodrigues. Dorothy and Fredric were fantastic hosts to our family in this wonderful spotlessly clean house. The food was awesome very fresh, beautifully prepared and presented, giving us a great taste of Rodriguean cuisine. Kafe Maron is located at the SE end of the island, in our view... More

This is complemented by a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and absence of formality; words like 'homely' and 'welcoming' are apt descriptions. Our... More

Frederic and Dorothy were so hospitable and really made us feel like we could have/do anything we wanted. They arranged for us to rent a scooter for a very reasonable price and it was parked right outside... More

Kafé Marron is a very nice place close to the best beaches on Rodrigues at the other end of the island from the airport. The house is pleasantly spacious and well thought out with quirky furnishings. Dorothy runs a casual place with an easy, friendly atmosphere. The food is excellent. Be prepared to meet cows, chickens roaming around the house... More
