If you are looking for accomodation on La Digue island don’t think to much if this guesthouse has free rooms because it is a very good choice. Really good value for money, close to jetty, nice staff, very good breakfast and quite nice and spacious rooms. I am pretty surprised looking on the reviews and seeing that this guesthouse is...

Simply speaking - Good: Excellent food in the restaurant and very nice/helpful waitresses. Bad: Simple rooms and indifferent management. Ugly: Dogs scavange (lost trainers and wife's shoes to the loose dogs), very poor bike rental (upkeep terrible - I actually lost a peddle and ended up wripping my skin with the lost peddle mount) *back to indifferent management - did...

Well I would have given 5 stars to this property if the dinner would have been excellent. Let me start with the booking. Being a Genius customer on booking.com, I have got a great price for the accomodation: 60 euro per night including breakfast. We paid 10% at the moment of booking and the rest were paid cash on the... More

We stayed here for one week back in August, 2013. Location is great. Just 3 min from marina. Staff were very pleasant. Room was very clean, and food more than great. We paid for B&B but we also had few dinners for very reasonable price. Highly recommended!!! There are also bikes for rent. All in all if you decide to... More
