Fantastic hotel in a perfect location.
We love this hotel after getting married here 4 years ago. It is our first time back, this time with our son and we loved being here again. The hotel is pretty simple really and not too flashy. Lovely gardens, two really good pools (which could do with modernising really) a lovely bar and breakfast. Covid took its toll on the stay but we will definitely return. Spend a bit of money on refreshing the bedrooms, bathrooms, wardrobes and swimming pools and this hotel is perfect. Great value for money.

Nice hotel right on the beach. Two pools, food was good, a lot of sport possibilities available - table tennis, beach tennis and beach volleyball, small but well equipped gym. Rooms and main building are little worn, but it´s nothing serious and everything was working fine.

Hotel is in an excellent location - next to the sea and easy start place for outings to cilaos and maido. Good grounds - with space to walk around. We enjoyed the swimming pools but that was the only facility available. Not quite value for money. The breakfast was good. That was the only meal we had at the hotel. The staff were welcoming but there was no one to help to take the luggage to the room. Trolleys were available but there were no smooth path to use the trolley on requiring us to lift the wheels from time to time. The rooms were clean. Nice little private verandah with view on the beach. The AC worked well. The main bed was good and comfy. However the extra bed was not fit for sleeping on. The bathroom is too outdated and needs refurbishment badly. Each time we used the shower in the bath, the whole bathroom floor was covered in water. We expected more facilities made available for the price we paid. Overall not really value for money for a 3 star hotel for the price we paid.
