Stayed for 8 nights in March 2018 and had an upstairs room on the garden side. Very quiet. Nice-sized room, the air conditioning worked great and it was very clean. There was only one day that the towels were not changed but that was not a problem for us. Appreciated the terrace with small table and two chairs. The staff was friendly and helpful and I loved the Siamese type cat, Simba, who could always be found hanging around. There was free parking for the days we had a rental car, and we always found a spot out front. There is also a bus stop down the street and just around the corner, and it was very easy to get to St. Paul and St. Leu, for example. Buses are cheap and very clean and comfortable. Although there is not too much to do in Saline Les Bains, the hotel is located within walking distance to a few restaurants, a grocery store, pharmacy, bakery, etc. It was fast and easy to get to the beach where you can walk and swim for hours. The hotel loaned us makes and tubas to snorkel. It is like an aquarium with so many varieties of colourful fish! The evening ambiance is lovely being able to eat poolside by candlelight. The food is good and service rapid, sometimes even too rapid if you are not in a hurry. The swimming pool is small but nice, although don't count on tanning too much as there is a lot of shade from the palm trees. Best to go to the beach for that. What we especially appreciated was the fact that the hotel provides breakfast at any time you ask, even at 3 a.m. - just tell them the night before. Great when you have early morning activities (ULM/helicopter tour, a trek to the volcano or early return to the airport!) Globally we really enjoyed our stay here. We just noticed that the pool area needs some renovations. The pool edges need to be cleaned (currently green) and the wood furniture really needs to be re-varnished. Hopefully this is only because it was the end of a particularly rainy and humid season and that they are waiting for better weather to make these improvements!

I stayed at Le Swalibo for two nights, and had a nice stay. I ate dinner there both nights, and it was very tasteful and delicious. I thought it was so cozy with the house cat wandering around, and taking a little nap on one of the chairs now and then. Swalibo offered me to book transportation from the airport to the hotel for 50 euros, which I later found out is quite a good price, unless of course you take a public bus. The beach is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Not the best beach, as there are a lot of big pieces of coral, which makes it a little uncomfortable to lay on on your towel, or walk on barefoot. But of course it depends on what you are used to. All staff I met was very friendly and helpful, and most of them spoke English, which I later would find out, is not so common on the island regardless of age.

We travelled with Onyx to La Reunion and I thoroughly recommend this travel company for attention to detail. We stayed in the friendly Hotel Swalibo where the staff could not do enough for you. We had rooms overlooking the pool-which were clean and functional. The nearby beach was perfect. We ate in the hotel on quite a few evenings and the food was delicious. The New Years Eve party was a real high light-great good dancing fireworks champagne-great atmosphere-we loved it. A holiday we will never forget.
