A group of 4 of us stayed here in Feb 2017 and were charmed by the willingness of all the staff to engage even though for some English was a struggle. The rooms are lovely although I would recommend going up a notch to a superior room from a standard one. The extra space especially in the bathroom and other...

Very nice, pretty well faultless hotel. Staff and facilities top notch. However, don't swim in the lagoon as there seems to be an effluent outfall nearby along the coast. I stopped swimming after the first used syringe floated past me. Saying that, it's not the hotels fault and the pool is great.

We were exhausted when we arrived at this hotel after a long tour around Madagascar. The sun was shining, the hotel was white and shiny and all the staff were smiling and welcoming. The rooms were in the grounds and spacious. After showering and changing, we found the bar and restaurant near the beach. Food and drinks were delicious and...

My wife and I stayed 3 nights. Hotel a bit hard to find because it doesn't seem to really be in St. Gilles, rather Salines des Bains. Look for supermarket Leader Price, and you're very close. Beach is lovely with decent snorkeling, although like much of the world, the coral is not healthy. Still we saw good variety of tropical...

Given that this was supposed to be a very special holiday for us, we were appalled by our experience and ended up leaving early. In my opinion, this is not a 5* hotel but international standards and is probably more appropriately classed as 3*. A list of what went wrong: Loud moaning and banging sounds through the night, presumably from...
