I was expecting an average venue, actually the staff was very professional, the room clean and comfortable, breakfast really yummy. In the end we really enjoyed our stay, the only deception was the absence of a kettle in the room that helps a lot for an herbal tea at night.

This was my first visit to Reunion Island. The hotel is close to the beach - does not have direct access one has to go through a gate and then down to the beach - very nice breakfast included - but be careful of the BIRDS - they pounce on your food as soon as you turn your back! My room was basic. This hotel seems to be popular with families as it has more than one pool area. Maybe try to get a room on the ocean side - mine was not so no real view. Staff were very friendly.

This was our first stop at the beginning of a 12 day stay on Reunion. We were moved from our original hotel to Le Recif and we were so glad. Situated just back from the beach with views of the sea, the rooms are comfortable and all the staff friendly. Breakfast is traditional but keep an eye on the birds or they will pinch your bread! The pools are well situated and you have a family pool and an adult pool for those that prefer a bit of quite. The bar serves some excellent cocktails and evening food which is a variation on the buffet. Situated just out of the village of St Giles which has a reasonable selection of shops and a colourful Sunday market

We stayed in Hotel Le Recif for three and a half weeks during July. The hotel is well situated close to the beach with sea views from some of the rooms. There are a large number of parking bays available. There are two pools - one next to the bar and casual restaurant and one further away towards the north side of the hotel grounds. The grounds are well kept and there is direct access through a gate to the beach with the swimming area a short walk down the beach. Breakfasts are buffet and are really good enabling those that do not have lunch to make it through to dinner quite easily. The dinners are all buffet and, although we only ate there a few times, they are good. You can also order snacks at the bar/restaurant next to the pool. The staff are extremely friendly but English is limited and a smattering of French certainly helps communication. The rooms are plain and could do with some updating but are very comfortable. The only issues that we had was that the wi-fi signal in the room was not wonderful and the TV channels were all French with no other options. Overall well worth a visit!

Hotel with many villas is located in very nice garden, almost botanical with many interesting flowers and plants. Open restaurant serves very good breakfast. On the other hand only few restaurants around. Real sea swimming is not the best as in all island. Beach is just across, water shoes are highly recommended. To move around and travel, car is needed. Often traffic jam on the way to and from the airport. Hotel has large parking place. In general we stayed for 4 nights to travel and we were satisfied. Helicopter flight is a MUST.

Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on Trip Advisor following your recent stay. We are all very pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay with us. A car in indeed needed to move around the island and traffic jams are frequent. One has to leave the hotel early to avoid them. We hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming you again soon at Hotel Le Récif! Warm regards.
