I guess the best part about this hotel is its location right on the beach front. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good part was that most of them knew a bit of english which helped. Rooms are very average and on the smaller side. No kettle and mineral water provided which is a bit annoying. I had to go to...

There are fences around swimming pools and also to the beach. You have to walk through a small wood to the beach and take your own towel. We spent 6 nights there. The rooms are big enough. It was not really relaxing at the pool and there are no sunbeds at the beach. So we walked long ways to Saint...

Hotel Recif is a very nice hotel and well located. Only 40 minutes away from the airport. Just 50-100 metres away from a lovely beach. Rooms are tidy and clean. The hotel might need a bit of an upgrade to keep his good rating, but I am sure they will.

Our shipped was docked due to electrical issues so this was not a visit by choice. The room was lovely in a minimalist style. The flower blossoms throughout the room were an extra added touch of the beautiful grounds brought to our room. Flowering trees decorated the grounds. There were two pools, didn't swim but both looked great. Breakfast offered...

We did not expect to have a hotel stay here, but when our expedition ship had mechanical problems in port they put us up here for two nights while it was under repairs. This is an older property but a large resort compared to most in the area. The rooms were spartan but clean, quiet, and comfortable. It has several...

Arrived 30/12/2016 late at night. Check-in was quick. Parking bit of a problem. Breakfast every day was good. Although stays the same every day except for the main dish. Kids loved the pancakes. Clean beach towels every day. 2 x big swimming pools. Literally on the beach to go for snorkeling. Shops about 900m away. Really very convenient, clean and...

3rd year of staying here. Very nice hotel with friendly staff and immaculately clean. Rooms serviced daily to high standard and good food. Right next to beach and 2 good pools (although one was being relined during my stay this year). Highly recommended :)
