Spent 2 nights there. Very good breakfast. I recommend you to book the diner as well, served as buffet - it's delicious, all local food very tasty. Staff friendly and welcoming. Book in advance the transportation with them to get to the guesthouse because you won't find anything from the port - ride a bit expensive but you'll need it... More

The place is nice and welcoming, although on renovation right now. Bungalows clean and spacious, with daily cleaning and new flowers - and so new ants - daily. The turtles are so nice, but they stay in a very smelly place unfortunately. The breakfast is very poor and the person serving it not welcoming at all, never smiling not saying... More

We arrived after dark and left at 9:00 the next morning, so my comments are based on a very short stay. The staff of Calou Guesthouse were very friendly and helpful. The cool towel and juice on arrival were most welcome. After a day kayaking and walking, I was ready for a good shower, but the hot water valve had... More

This is one of the nicest guesthouses in La Digue. Super clean, super friendly and the best cooking on the island, honestly I think they could get away with charging a higher room rate. I went to a few different restaurants while here and never had better food than what was served for dinner at Calou. The staff is super... More

I stayed in Le Calou on my own at the end of February 2015. It is a fabulous little guest house with excellent rooms. Le Calou is a little treasure of a place in La Digue. The staff are all wonderful though I have a special place in my heart for Klaus who is funny, welcoming and a great host,... More

Second time already in Calou Guesthouse! Why I came back? You wont believe: the legendary dinners! Absolutely mindblowing buffet: quite small, but every dish, fish, salad is unforgettable. I remember that in 2010 I spent one night in the Barbaron hotel in Mahe. One suit costs 600 euros. They had a galaxy size buffet, dozens of choices, but not a... More

We booked at Calou last minute and were lucky to be accommodated as it is a popular place. We were provided with the apartment which was homely and spacious with a great terrace outside. The jungle is all around which freaked me about about due to a personal fear of insects. If you also share fear of insects i would... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in september 2012. The rooms are very nice. We got the Creole House all for the 2 of us, 52 steps to get up there (they will carry your suitcase up though), but what a great view of the forest, with a very nice terrace, big living room and kitchen. Breakfast was a nice typical... More
