We had a booking for 3 nights but unfortunately the ferry had a technical problem so we couldn't go to the island. We send an email to the hotel about the cancellation but all we got back was "that is not possible" nothing else!! We wrote back that we are willing to pay the half of the cancellation fees because... More

We stayed one night as part of a weekend away. Room was clean and tidy. Service was great. We had the dinner buffet which was pricey but you have to remember where you are. The food was fine not worthy of the complaints below just not fine dining standard. Book a car in advance, we couldn't get one but spent... More

We were in Isle de Pines on a family boat and recommended this restaurant but extremely disappointed with the quality of the food and being very expensive. Great outlook and reasonable service, but food is not restaurant quality.

Had lovely buffet lunch part of our day trip to ile de pines. Nice salads, cold seafood, yummy fish curry and a variety of desserts. View was beautiful. Straight on the beach overlooking the bay with its beautiful white sands and multi coloured azure blue water.

We stayed at Kou Bugny three nights in September 2016 and thought it was great. We had read mixed reviews and were pleasantly surprised. The room as nice and clean, staff were friendly (easier if you speak some French but you can get by in English). We thought the breakfast was great, it's not 5 star obviously but there were... More

We stayed for 4 nights. Although the bed is comfortable, the room is super dark. Light access is via lamps on bedside and skylight with retractable screens which work fine on sunny day. But when there's no sun and at night, its hard to see clearly. One of our wall light was not working and it took 4 reminders to... More

The location is definitely superb. You are right on the very best beach. We stayed one night (2 adjoining rooms for kids and us). It was almost $500 NZ for this night and Hotel was definitely about 2 star. BUT you really can't beat the location. The beach is the whitest sand and the water transparently clear and you swim...

Hotel Kou-Bugny has an amazing location right on the beach front (restaurant). Unfortunately the main road cuts through between accommodation and the restaurant. It would be amazing for them to be connected on the beach front. Place was expensive but nice. There was mould in the shower and the a step around the bed that gouged my leg several times.... More

Spent three days on the Island and stayed at Kou Bugney. Was not impressed with the room at all. There was a wooden edging all the way along the bed which was a nice design, but the rooms are so tiny there is no room to move around the bed without smashing your shins on the wood constantly. The bathroom... More
