Bathroom - not clean, black moisture traces in between tiles. Broken soap tray. Cockroach presence. Hotel needs serious renovation. First stay was some years back. Conditions are still same . No improvement since its renamed as le relais de l'hermitage. For current price paid, one can find better hotels in the neighbourhood.

A tropical paradise but fluent French is essential

Lovely hotel, near a beautiful beach. The gardens were lovely, the swimming pools were brilliant. There were plenty of sun loungers to relax on, and it was right next to a safe sandy beach. As an English woman travelling with my teenage daughter, but without a man I felt ignored and overlooked, and on a couple of occasions it was assumed by hotel staff that I was a member of a larger party. Very little English was spoken, even by the "English speaking" staff. At check in we were given our key and told to keep walking up the corridor. We weren't told where anything was. There was a direct access to the beach through a coded gate, we only worked this out by watching other people. We asked for the code at reception, but then couldn't work out what to do so continued to go the long way round until another guest showed us. We then directed other confused guests. I had asked for a non-smoking room- it wasn't. I would have liked non-feather pillows, but asking for them was way beyond my basic level French. Food in the hotel was limited and expensive but there were lovely shops and bars close by. On the day before we left I was told by a receptionist that they had no info on my booked shuttle back to the airport- they did, they had just assumed I was with someone else so had put it aside. Beautiful hotel but communication is dire. A simple welcome pack- in any language would make such a difference.

Pros: The setting, the beach nearby, the gardens and the wildlife

Cons: Communication!

Location: Right next to a safe sandy beach. Aquarium within easy walking distance. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Good variety of excursions on offer

Nice hotel close to beach

Hotel close to beach where you can swin without fear of sharks. "Family room" for three adult friends was too small with an annoying air conditioning that couldn't be adjusted any way. Not many in staff spoke English and knowledge of excursions was weak although they are being advertised at hotel wall. Breakfast buffet was full of birds eating whatever they could get.
