A welcome break after a few more or less basic hotels in central and east Reunion. Des Neiges might be a bit dated, e.g. bathroom deserves some more modern stuff, but rooms are large, views on the surrounding mountains are great, and walking distance to all of the village. Comfy bed and decent WiFi. Breakfast buffet was extensive enough; dinner 'buffet' was actually a set menu choice for entree and dessert and only buffet for the main course. With a bit underwhelming choice of fish and meat/poultry and hardly veggies, but the latter is typical Reunion kitchen. Pools looked great, due to the weather we could not use.
