Bathroom - not clean, black moisture traces in between tiles. Broken soap tray. Cockroach presence. Hotel needs serious renovation. First stay was some years back. Conditions are still same . No improvement since its renamed as le relais de l'hermitage. For current price paid, one can find better hotels in the neighbourhood.

A tropical paradise but fluent French is essential
Lovely hotel, near a beautiful beach. The gardens were lovely, the swimming pools were brilliant. There were plenty of sun loungers to relax on, and it was right next to a safe sandy beach. As an English woman travelling with my teenage daughter, but without a man I felt ignored and overlooked, and on a couple of occasions it was assumed by hotel staff that I was a member of a larger party. Very little English was spoken, even by the "English speaking" staff. At check in we were given our key and told to keep walking up the corridor. We weren't told where anything was. There was a direct access to the beach through a coded gate, we only worked this out by watching other people. We asked for the code at reception, but then couldn't work out what to do so continued to go the long way round until another guest showed us. We then directed other confused guests. I had asked for a non-smoking room- it wasn't. I would have liked non-feather pillows, but asking for them was way beyond my basic level French. Food in the hotel was limited and expensive but there were lovely shops and bars close by. On the day before we left I was told by a receptionist that they had no info on my booked shuttle back to the airport- they did, they had just assumed I was with someone else so had put it aside. Beautiful hotel but communication is dire. A simple welcome pack- in any language would make such a difference.

Nice hotel close to beach
Hotel close to beach where you can swin without fear of sharks. "Family room" for three adult friends was too small with an annoying air conditioning that couldn't be adjusted any way. Not many in staff spoke English and knowledge of excursions was weak although they are being advertised at hotel wall. Breakfast buffet was full of birds eating whatever they could get.

Lovely area, close to beach and shops
We stayed overnight at this hotel the room was clean and comfortable and had a view over the pool area and out onto the ocean, the location was excellent close to the shops and to the beach. Breakfast offered great choices and all fresh fruits. The staff were helpful and even opened our bottle of wine which we bought at the shops without a problem. The only thing I would say is that the hotel needs a little bit of upgrading on the maintenance but still I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel.

Reunion is not a tropical island getaway
Really long time to check in - 20 mins + Evening buffet - nothing special Cheesy disco if you like that sort of thing Service very slow in general - when you're thirsty ... Room didn't stink of cigarettes - bonus :) Comfortable mattress Why on earth do Europeans like square pillows ??! no other pillow shapes available Pool guy (you know who you are) hitting on anything that moved Breakfast - good selection and the birds get to enjoy it too

A nice choice
The resort offers standard accommodation close to the beach. The location is in the tourist area with shops, bars, beach facilities etc. Busy during weekends as locals use the beach for family picnics. Good for families. Not every employee can speak English and sometimes it was hard to communicate with them - for example missing daily menu in English. Need to improve the service. For example check-in was very poor because the front desk lady could not speak English. She made so many mistakes and did not inform us about important details. On the other hand their colleagues were very helpful (Sebastian and others).
