We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Earlier, we stayed in another 4 star hotel south of the island. It is by comparing with the other 4 star hotel that i'm writing this review. In other locations, we 've stayed several times in 4 star hotels, the level at Réunion seems to be lower overall. This particular hotel I'd rate it a 3 star as I experienced it now. Anyway, this hotel let us down especially with the breakfast We couldnt get a decent coffee for breakfast (this is a coffee that is not nescafé), we asked a couple of times but the staff didnt seem to understand our request. Odd, because only 5 meters away, at the bar, one can get a very good "normal" coffee or latte for purchase. Breakfast is basic although the omelets, made to order, are very good! The dinner selection for half board was not always up to our taste, but there was flexibility from the staff in choosing from the normal menu, whether or not with a extra to pay. We would personally not opt again for half board, because a few days we couldnt eat 3 courses and could instead have eaten a simpler meal nearby. But if you like to fine dine "french cuisine" every day, half board would be your thing. Drinks are relatively expensive here, again comparing to the other hotel. Other than that, a general touch-up or cleaning would be nice. Especially in these times, I would have preferred that for example outside tables would be cleaned more often and thorough. The hotel is very nicely located, and this is what I liked most: the guarded swimming area and the natural pool. The swimming pool is shallow, does not really allow for a sportive swim. We made the best of the location close to the beach, but as said, we had better here at Réunion.…
The hotel staff lost our car key in someone else’s car. We had to wait to get the key back for 7 hours in the common parts of the hotel because they didn’t allow us to keep the room after 11am. Their security system is really not worth 4 stars hotel standards. Very disappointed.
I've bene there prior to join a cruise ship for work. The hotel is very nice, eccellent location. The room is spacious with a beautiful veranda. Breakfast and the other meals are good. Staff is kind, smiling and helpful.
We had a" suite with sea view". It was fantastic. In fact we were sad to leave so fantastic was our stay. Definitly worth the extra for the suite. The location is great, right next to the rock pool and netted area of the beach. If the hotel is full be prepared to park a few 100 meters away if you arrive late as the spaces are limited. We didnt try the restaurant as there are many restaurants at the beach. Great Hotel, Great staff.
Beautiful spot right on the beach, amazing sunset views from the restaurant terrace and room balconies, professional staff, creative and high quality poolside bar and restaurant, and ample car parking so we could access other west coast beaches and activities.
We were looking for a hotel close to the beach/seafront and Boucan Canot was one of the few we could find. Not sure what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is well located, with the beach a few meters away, the tide pool right next to the hotel and the pristine swimming pool. We have found Boucan Canot (the town) not as busy as the surroundings but still had a vibrant buzz with tourists. Good shops and restaurants in the vicinity. We however did find the restaurant somewhat expensive but still value for money ito quality of food. I can highly highly recommend the hotel. You well not be disappointed.
you cannot swim on the beach. But still spectacular. nice swimming area, in the rocks. Service is excellent. very personalized check in. good breakfast. parking on site. close to beachside restaurants and shops.
Had a short but pleasant business stay at the Boucan Canot, which is my second visit. GOOD - Extremely polite young staff - Reception friendly and helpful - Open plan with fans natural & fresh - Quality food at Restaurant - Quality breakfast - Ideal location right on beach - Pleasant sea view - Classy Boutique style of Hotel - A strong non chain Hotel feel BAD - A little understaffed in Restaurant - Small towels -
We decided to visit Reunion for a few nights (3) during our honeymoon to Mauritius and couldn't have picked a better area/hotel! We stayed in a room on the lagoon and it was absolutely beautiful to have the ocean view balcony to wake up to every morning. The location is also great since there are multiple delicious restaurants within walking distance. The hotel is situated just above the beach and is perfect for sunsets/relaxing by the pool. We definitely recommend staying here for a relaxing vacation. The complimentary breakfast is also fantastic and a great way to start your morning. If you rent a car there is free parking and will have a ton of activities to do within the area! Highly recommend staying in this location!!!
Stayed at the Hotel for 4 nights. Rooms are ok but cleaning needs to be improved (we found lots of hair in the shower when we moved in). Disgusting are the birds at the breakfast location (sitting on the tables, chairs, buffet,....) check-in was ok, Location is great
