Well suited for accommodating families or groups of friends, the Grand Hotel des Mascareignes compensates for its slightly unfavourable location (not on the waterfront), with carefully designed sports facilities and relaxation areas.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the heights of Boucan Canot, 2 miles north of Saint-Gilles and 19 miles from the airport at Saint-Denis. For the transfer, expect about 30 munutes to 1 hour, depending on traffic.

    Accommodation 7.95 /10

    Out of all 155 lodgings at the Grand Hotel des Mascareignes, 16 rooms do not have balconies. However, all the rooms benefit more or less from the same view of the swimming pool, the gardens or the sea horizon. For more tranquillity, ask for the rooms upstairs. Carefully designed, they have a sitting area equipped with a beautiful divan in rattan. The rest of the furniture matches the latter: dark wood, beige lampshade, red and ecru curtains. The facilities have a pleasant level of comfort: air conditioning, a safe, a mini bar, telephone and satellite television. The bathroom in each room has a bathtub and a hair dryer. The toilets are separate.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Renovated in 2003, the Grand Hotel des Mascareignes is a semi-circular building with 5 floors, backed on a hill overlooking the Indian Ocean. Very simply but pleasantly decorated with a low table and mahogany chairs, the reception has ample space for fast arrivals and departures. A small staircase leads to the 7,530 ft² swimming pool. Perfect for swimming lengths, it is also well suited for aquasize courses or water polo. Bordering the swimming pool, the paved sun lounge is very well equipped with deckchairs, mattresses and sunshades. However, since the space is quite limited, the deckchairs are a bit too close to each other. This definitely guarantees a convivial ambiance.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    Occupying a very airy structure along one side of the swimming pool, the restaurant serves breakfast and dinner buffet style. The choice is quite extensive and has a nice selection of buns, pastries, cheese, cold cuts, cereals, yogurts and fresh fruits in the morning. In the evening, the dishes are organised around a theme: Creole, Asian or Mediterranean cuisine. Beautifully dressed with orange tablecloths, the restaurant's tables provide a setting that becomes more romantic in the evening when the swimming pool is illuminated. For lunch, you can order a salad, sandwich, pizza or a local dish such as chicken curry.

    To know

    Located on the heights of Boucan Canot, the Grand Hotel des Mascareignes dominates the bay and the main road linking Saint-Denis to Saint-Gilles. This location is not too embarrassing, as the relaxation areas of the facility are actually a closed community.
    Well suited for families, the Grand Hotel des Mascareignes is a great place to stay for groups of friends who want to spend freely their holidays in a dynamic ambiance. For sun worshippers, the beach of Boucan Canot (very popular among local residents of La Réunion) is 655 ft away.

        Très bel hôtel mais dommage qu'il ne soit plus très bien entretenu. Le bâtiment est magnifique ou du moins avait l'air magnifique, on a maintenant l'impression qu'il tombe en ruine, et c'est vraiment dommage étant donné l'étendue de la propriété et la situation géographique de celui-ci (à quelques pas de la Plage de Boucan et de ses restaurants).

      • Advantages

        Très belles chambres et studios bien équipés. Grande piscine. Idéalement situé.
