I stayed in Rising Sun Guesthouse for 3 nights and I really enjoyed it very much. Couldn't have stayed in a better place. The staff was very nice and helpful with everything. The jetty place is less than 15 min walk. I would highly recommend it. Definitely would go back.

The owners are very helpful and made us feel...

Rising Sun was in a good location, but I would like to point out its further than you think from the port. Especially if you have luggage, we did and it took us longer to get there than we thought. So worth noting. Rooms were spacious and clean, we had a problem with a leak but that was sorted pretty...

The guesthouse is 500 meters away from the jetty close to small national park with rare birds species which only live at La Digue. The owners are very friendly and they make delicious dinners which you need to try. Everyday we looked forward what would be served in the evening. At the place you can rent well maintained bikes (the...

Thank you for your review and the time you spent on it. We are happy to see you liked the location and rooms. We are sorry to hear you couldn't enjoy your stay as expected. However, we still remember this incident and like to state the case. In general guesthouses are unable to offer all the services a hotel does....
