This place is just old and dated, I was here for 1 night before I fly home and it just wasn't pleasant. Food gross, AC terrible, no water in my room. Cold beer was good can't complain there. After several calls regarding the water I went to see for myself what was going on, and nothing was happening. I had... More

Had a pleasant week here in October. Fantastic location right opposite a very scenic public beach. Great pool, surf-themed bar, plentiful good food, spa and a very basic tennis court. Comfortable rooms with good air con. The Hotel has its own in-house Surf School though I did not see any waves higher than 2 feet the whole week. The staff... More

The hotel was full in July With people from La Réunion, but we managed to have a room for two nights. It was very simple, with no light in the bathroom... But fine.... staff was great, particularly a lady at the bar. Nice place for a family stay.

Great welcome, indeed a cozy atmosphere. We really enjoyed the a la carte dinner with the best breadfruit soup i have ever tasted. Loved the dishes... More

Been there for the day package. First impression: hotel looks like a bungalow, old dated furniture - not modern at all. Was given welcoming cocktail on arrival. Baggage boy didn't bother to take our bag. Pool looked clean on the surface but there was accumulated dirt at the bottom, which only showed when diving. Lunch service at restaurant was good,...

Great little hotel for the price. Exceeded our expectation from reviews we saw. Welcome drink on arrival & escorted to room. Room itself is very 70s 80s retro style and clean. Most furniture were in good condition. Wardrobe could use some TLC. Amenities available were very satisfactory such as a mini bar, safe, hair dryer, laundry service, etc. Spa session... More

Not a bad looking place, opposite tamarin main beach.. Nice big pool.. Worst restaurant service and food ever, was so disappointed. Rooms are average looking, beds are good and firm.. Toilets looks abit aged and wished toiletries were offered in shower. The best moment was the spa, we had the couples massage and that was perfect no complaints.
