We had a great time at le vieux cep cilaos. The hotel is well situated and easy to found in cilaos. The hotel had a big parking to park your car but the problem is they don't have a gate to close the parking at night. Friendly and helpful staff. i recommend this hotel for everyone want to visit cilaos.

The Vieux Cep is nice small country/mountain hotel with rather smaller rooms that are rustic, tweedy but lovely and quiet. The staff is friendly though we had a bit of an irk with the receptionist as we came 4pm and they could not offer any food nor snack as the restaurant was closed. Thats understandable but I walked up to...

Decent place to base yourself – close to town center, great views of the cirque, comfortable rooms. Only about a 5 minute walk takes you right out to the main street – tons of cafes, shops, restos, etc. – but a very quiet location. The hotel is set so that most of the rooms have great views north to the...

We stayed one night at Le Vieux Cep before we took off on our exciting hike through Le Cirque. After a fascinating busride from the ocean the bus stopped almost outside the hotel. We stayed in a room at the gound level. When making the reservation we learned that it was mandatory to have the evening dinner at the hotel...

After having read the reviews here, I became a bit worried. But I think most of the less favourable were from before the hotel had a makeover. The room (408) we were in was large and clean. The shower was very nice - indeed no mechanical ventilation - but a wall between the shower and the rest of the room,...

The hotel is located very quiet close to the main street of Cilaos. Big car Parking is available. Welcome at the Reception was good and included a welcome drink. The room was quite small bout sufficient for the two-days stay. Well furnished and decorated. Relatively big bathroom with modern shower. Unfortunately there was no WiFi in the rooms, only at...

The hotel has a nice and overall fairly luxurious feel to it, Nice rooms with (in our case) a spacious bathroom and rainshower, a balcony, big safe and a good bed. We had a good heater, which was a must as the temperature dropped heavily during the evening. Biggest downside was the lack of ventilation in the bathroom, which basically...

We had heard that the rooms in this hotel were small. We were pleasantly surprised. Great views from the room up to the mountains. Lovely balcony. Good location for the town and the walking. We didn't have dinner in the hotel, but breakfast was good.

To be perfectly honest, the hotel can get away with quite a lot because the views are just breathtaking. The room was the least nice room we stayed in during our trip to the island; there is a lot of wood in the room so it was quite dark, the bathroom is dated, there was no air-conditioning... but everything is...
