    Location 6.5 /10

    The hotel is located on the heights of Boucan Canot, 2 miles north of Saint-Gilles and 22 miles from the airport at Saint-Denis. For the transfer, expect about 30 minutes to an hour depending on traffic.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The 66 units of the Archipelago are categorised into 54 standard and 12 duplex rooms. Book a duplex room if you want to enjoy a partial view of the ocean. Each room can accommodate up to 4 persons. The rest of the rooms, each with an area of 215 ft², overlook the pool and the gardens. They extend onto a terrace on the ground floor and a balcony on the first floor, furnished with a rattan table and two armchairs. Made of rosewood, the furniture in the rooms provides a welcoming touch of refinement in a decor utilising shades of beige, but looking a little bit outdated. As for amenities, each room is provided with air conditioning, satellite television and a kitchen with two electric hobs, a refrigerator and cupboards. To use the kitchenette, you have to contact the reception for the key to the cupboards and a basket of kitchen utensils in consideration of a deposit (50 euros). Safes are available in some of the rooms or at the reception. The small bathroom has a bathtub and a separate toilet.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1992 and renovated in 2001, the hotel was transformed into a residential hotel in 2005. For this occasion, a kitchen area has been installed in each unit and the bedding has been refreshed. This hotel residence consists of a number of typical Creole bungalows with pale yellow façades, arranged around the swimming pool, in the tropical garden. With modest and refined decor at the same time, the reception creates a change of scene with its exotic furniture made of wood and rattan. Open wide to the swimming pool, the lounges in the reception area invite you to relax in the serene atmosphere, facing the pool. The pool has an area of 3,765 ft², and is equipped with a waterfall on one end that will definitely amuse the children. As for the rest, deckchairs and sunshades are provided for relaxation on the sun lounge.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Located under a vast well-ventilated dome on an open terrace overlooking the swimming pool, the restaurant serves buffet style breakfast as well as snack sytle lunch and dinner. Several salads, meats and sandwiches are offered, in addition to samoussas as appetizers. ?f you get bored, you can go to any of the restaurants nearby. The residence has partnerships with 4 restaurants located in Boucan Canot, Saint-Gilles and the town of Hermitage.

    To know

    The nearest beach, located 1 mile away is that of the Boucan Canot. It can be reached by way of a shuttle (provided by the hotel), or a rent-a-car (parking on the seafront).
    When taking a quick dip, observe the signs that surround the swimming areas, warning of the presence of corals in the white sand, but also currents and waves that beat the rocks at various places. There is no coral reef in the area, which makes the water depth grow quickly.
    The beach is public, so remember to bring along your towel or ask for a towel at the hotel in consideration of a deposit.

In addition to being spacious and having a beach right in front of the hotel, it has two swimming pools, a mini-club, and activities on offer for all. The setting is full of greenery and the staff are absolutely charming! Furthermore, the design is friendly and the hotel is very clean! We found it hard to find something to complain about. The cuisine maybe? Definitely not, even the food is beyond reproach!
