We couldn't believe what we found when we arrived and immediately wished we'd booked to stay for longer. This is an amazing location, peaceful, beautiful, amazing quiet beaches and the nearby Trou d' Argent. Kafe Matron itself is fantastic; Dorothy and her extended family effortlessly make you feel at home. The rooms are suberb, the views magnificent and the home... More

We were there for 5 days at the beginning of March. We enjoyed every seconds. Kafe Marron is a cute place. My mum and I enjoyed our walks every morning on the beach with a gorgeous sunrise. Maybe a little renovation would be perfect. Friendly and lovely team. They prepared a special vegan meal for me when we ate there.... More

We stayed 4 nights there, clean and spacious room with air conditioning. We had homemade breakfast and dinner by Dorothy, very tasty and prepared with love. Rodrigues is very quiet place not touched with civilization, so nothing for party people. But beautiful beaches with clear water overcome everything we ever seen.

I cannot more highly recommend Kafe Marron and a stay on beautiful Rodrigues. Dorothy and Fredric were fantastic hosts to our family in this wonderful spotlessly clean house. The food was awesome very fresh, beautifully prepared and presented, giving us a great taste of Rodriguean cuisine. Kafe Maron is located at the SE end of the island, in our view... More

We have stayed in a lot of guesthouses and Kafe Marron ranks as one of the best. Although it has only four double rooms it is designed in such a way as to give the impression of space. This is complemented by a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and absence of formality; words like 'homely' and 'welcoming' are apt descriptions. Our... More

We came to the Kafe Marron for three nights after spending some time on Mauritius and the contrast could not be more stark. Frederic and Dorothy were so hospitable and really made us feel like we could have/do anything we wanted. They arranged for us to rent a scooter for a very reasonable price and it was parked right outside... More

Kafé Marron is a very nice place close to the best beaches on Rodrigues at the other end of the island from the airport. The house is pleasantly spacious and well thought out with quirky furnishings. Dorothy runs a casual place with an easy, friendly atmosphere. The food is excellent. Be prepared to meet cows, chickens roaming around the house... More
