From five-star to self-catering, Reunion has it all

  • 14 November 2014

Even though Reunion Island may seem small there is a large variety of accommodation, from five-star hotels to self-catering bed-and-breakfasts. We found some reviews on TripAdvisor, which could be useful when you plan your Reunion Island Holiday. 

Blue Margouillat Seaview Hotel, Saint-Leu

“Considering St Leu is one of the best spots in Reunion for his location, beach and atmosphere, Blue Margouillat is the place to stay. Staff is very professional and nice. Food is amazing swimming pool is small though Sunset views are 'magical' room spacious and comfortable free parking,” says Ceybel t from Montreal, Canada.

“There were a few issues of detail to start with but the hotel's response from Stephane Barras (the General Manager) and all the staff blew me away. They worked incredibly hard so that the stay seemed to flow and the stay became perfect. Why? As another reviewer has said, the staff cared and had passion. Special mention must go to Jacques Anthony and his team in the gourmet Orangine restaurant. They prepared food which really touches all the senses. Vincent and the front-of-house team provided service as you would expect in a Michelin starred restaurant. The hotel is expensive (as is Reunion generally) and the rooms could be a little more boutique-style. Would I return though? Oui- certainement!" says York1000.

Palm Hotel and Sap Grand’Anse, Petite-Lle

“This is really one of the nicest hotels on Reunion Island. Lovely views and great rooms. Lovely spa and great restuarant. Stunning pool and bathing area with seasand without being at the beach itself,” says Y2TravelBellville, South Africa.

“Very pleasant bungalow.Well equipped. Clean and tidy. Warm and kind owners. Slept very well. Pleasant garden setting. Only complaint is the mosquitoes, so very difficult to sit outside and we needed to use spray and coils. Good idea to stock up in a large supermarket before you arrive if you are going to do self catering. Would recommend,” says Stephen b, Sydney, Australia.

Hotel le Cilaos, Cilaos

“After several days trekking in the mountains this hotel provided a most luxurious base for us. It has lovely cotton sheets, baths in each room, fabulous views to the mountains. It us about 15 minutes walk from the centre of town,” says Corbettbagger, Edinburgh.

Bois Rouge, Cilaos

“We stayed at Bois Rouge for 2 nights and found it very quaint with a view over Cilaos (over a field). The breakfasts were great with many personal touches. We were able to speak very little French and the owners English was worse than our French. This was very interesting when asking them where the hiking trails started from!! However, they made every effort to help us and make our stay comfortable. We had to leave at 4am on the last day to make it to the airport in time. Mari organised a basic breakfast set out in our room. These ladies went out their way to be helpful. If you are there to hike, I would recommend the 'Çol du Taibit' trail leading into Mafate. Its breathtaking!” says Ali B.

Les Corallines a Trou d’eau, La Saline les Bains

“What I really like about this renting was that it was very calm, next to the beach which was in fact in a lagoon. The view over the ocean from it was delighting. Moreover, i enjoyed the pool since there were few people who went in it. Local people are kind and cheerful so i took pleasure in discovering the island and it inhabitants. And this renting isn't expensive and does have good equipments and furniture. I really look forward my next vacation there,” says Guilaume, Saint Pierre, France.
