The Plantation guesthouse is great with awesome views. Our room was cozy and very clean. Breakfast was excellent and with lots of local and homemade products.
We were on hiking holidays in La Réunion and booked our stays through an agency. The documentation said that check-in had to be before 1800. We were finishing a hike in Cirque de Mafate and on our way back to our precedent guesthouse in Hell Bourg to get our luggage before driving to la Plantation. Short distances take a lot of time to drive in La Réunion, some roads are in bad shape and often you can't drive faster than 30kmh. On our way to get our luggage we were pushed off the road by a bus in a tight turn on a winding mountain road, the bus just continued on and we were hanging in the ditch...not a nice experience. It took some time and a very helpful local to get the car back on the road. We arrived in Hell Bourg much later than planned because of this and realized we wouldn't be able to make it before 1800 to La Plantation so we called them in advance to let them know.
From the start the person on the phone seemed annoyed with the news of our late arrival and let us know it quite clearly. Still she said they would be there and that we would arrive "when we arrive".
So we took the road and drove to la Plantation, now very careful after our accident. We hit many bigger slow ups on main intersections and the highway, taking longer than google initially told us. Tired from our long hike and a bit set back because of the incident we were very much looking forward to our stay at La Plantation. On the way we got a call from the host, inquiring about our whereabouts...first I thought it was to make sure we were well....oh no definitely not, I got scolded by the lady that "it's not possible you take to long - it doesn't take so long to arrive here!" Ok wow how nice from her, she even accused us of having stopped somewhere...which we didn't...but even if we did ? She made it very clear how annoyed she was with our late arrival and that it was not possible that we check in by ourselves as they had to wait for us and show us the room.
When we finally arrived at La Plantation sometime after 2000 the host was very cold and not particularly welcoming and showed us the property and our room.
Tired, we didn't really think more about it. He didn't ask anything about our trip, or why we were late and didn't complain either. We went to sleep not thinking anymore about it. And by the way the hosts were still catering to the host table at this time so they were present at the house anyway even with our late arrival....

Beware...after a wonderful breakfast...the host reminds us several times of the check out time...strange but ok...telling us that he has to leave. We were ready on time and vacated the room, checking the internet in the sitting area outside the room. The host arrives and tells us we have to leave, in a very rude and aggressive manner. Surprised we asked him if we could sit outside a few more minutes. There were other guests at the house anyway. We would have left 10-15 minutes later.
The host got very rude and aggressive with us, asking us to leave immediately his property. He then scolded us heavily for our late arrival and in particular for not having excused ourselves enough to him at the time of our arrival. Wow...please excuse me Sir that we did not take a knee when we arrived and asked for your generous pardon in front of your host table.
I never experienced such a rude host.
Your guests had an accident and then hit heavy traffic dear Sir, they called you as soon as they knew they would be delayed - but hey you obviously don't care...you rather scold them and behave like a frustrated person.
A pity and a shame.
Location is great though - so make sure you don't arrive late ha ha ha.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful bnb in the heights above St. Joseph. The view was breathtaking! We will always remember the delicious food which was served on the veranda. Nearly every day the kind hosts offer to cook dinner for the guests and we highly recomend to take this opportunity. We were allowed to taste some of the rum arrangé.Thank you once again and merci!

Came back this January for a stay on the french side and felt like I was coming back home. The staff at the front desk are more than welcoming and attend to your every need with grace and warmth. The complimentary breakfast poolside is wonderful - the Best coffee machine - such a wondferful way to start the day. There restaurant on-site is very good but there are a multitude of options within walking distance as well.

Our best stay on Reunion, a wonderful location.
Room at the swimming pool was a bit small but ideally located.
We had a lot of fun during the dinner talking with the other guests.
There was a couple replacing Eric and his wife (I forgot their name), they were outstanding.

Room tip: Take a room with sea view

We stayed one night in this guest house with my mife, my two children and my parents in lord.
Eric and his wife are very friendly and are very careful about our well-being.
The dinner was pretty good and the breakfast wonderful.
We enjoyed the jacuzzi and the swimming pool.
It is also a good place for children. The owners are very careful with them.
Special mention for Eric’s lemon cake.
