this hotel is very well located. next to the beach ( not the best place to swim due to corals). It does not really cater for foreigners - their english is very limited ( well, most of the island is the same ...). The restaurant is nothing to shout about and overpriced - there are a lot of nicer (... More

I was recommended to stay at Recif Hotel. It is a nice resort. The room was spacious and cleaned. It has a nice atmosphere for dinner with live entertainment but a little bit disappointing since they did not offer "A la Carte Menu" and had only buffet or a "table d'hote menu", if you wanted a light dinner...The food was...

Excellent staff and very good food. Restaurant manager organised a cake with candles for my son's 21st - nice touch. Comfortable rooms, reasonably well equipped. All rooms have balconies. No mini bar but a fridge in the room contained a supply of bottled water. Two good pools. And the hotel is about 50 m from the most spectacular coral lagoon... More

My partner and I stayed in the hotel and had a really lovely time, the staff was nice and the atmosphere with the guests and live music etc made the whole stay a real little event for us.

Stayed here on business, was recommended by a local colleague but only for the hotel's location to his nearby office rather than him recommending the actual hotel itself. On arrival I was given a nice fruit juice and despite me being too early for check in (this was due to my flight times-I had no control over) I was allocated... More

This is a special place, the staff are some of the highest quality in the world, everyone's happy to help you in anyway they can, you are right next to the beach and my room was very comfotable. Food was similarly excellent which I say rarely.

We were invited to stay at the Le Recif in Reunion from 5-7 Feb and having just spent 1 night at a 5* resort, we thought this would be a little bit of a downgrade, considering its a 3* property. However, we were incredibly surprised by the fabulous warm welcome we received, before being blown away by the hotel rooms... More

Really enjoyed our stay at Le Recif. Do not expect a 5 star hotel but you can expect great value for money. The only negative point was the timing of the cleaners that cleaned the room.
