Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Village de Corail is the facility perfectly suitable for families wishing to enjoy a stay in an exotic seaside resort. The large gardens of the hotel, equipped for children and its location along the Hermitage beach, are its main advantages. But you have to ignore the lack of particular comfort in the rooms.

    Location 7.61 /10

    The hotel is located on the Hermitage beach, 2 miles south of Saint-Gilles and 23 miles from the airport at Saint-Denis. For the transfer, you should plan about fifteen minutes to an hour and a half depending on the traffic.

    Accommodation 5.70 /10

    You can access the bungalows walking along small pleasant paths that criss-cross the green gardens of the hotel. The rooms on the inside offer standard size (161 ft²) and lead onto a beautiful terrace furnished with a table and two wooden chairs, painted in shades of blue. The rooms are each equipped with a kitchenette (2 hotplates, dishes for 4 people, a refrigerator, a drying line, a broom). In the rest of the rooms, the decor is minimalist with plaster walls in shades of blue and pale yellow, which definitely need paint. They are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning and a small bathroom with ? shower. The safe (free) and telephone can be used at the reception.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in the 1970s and fully renovated in 2000, the Village de Corail consists of 129 bungalows scattered in large gardens, in groups of four. The reception building is of white concrete - without charm - and opens to the gardens of the hotel. Here, a beautiful playground with swings is equipped for children, on a large stretch of green grass in the shade of exotic vegetation. To the left, you can see the swimming pool, which is small compared to the high number of customers and then the restaurant. The latter overlooks the sea and the Hermitage beach.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    The Village restaurant, serving buffet style, consists of a large room opening onto the gardens, near the swimming pool. The furniture, in white plastic, is dressed with white tablecloths, but the rest is a little bit gloomy. Nevertheless, effort has gone into the decoration of the plaster walls which are decorated with murals and old black and white photographs of the island of La Réunion in the past. It serves breakfast and evening meals. If at least fifteen people are present, it also opens at noon. The food is mainly local and international. Thematic evenings are organised a couple or three times a week with buffets of Indian, Chinese or Creole cuisine. A snack bar located on the small terrace of the pool offers sandwiches, ice cream and soft drinks all day long.

    Beach 7.45 /10

    The beach, the Hermitage, covers several miles between Saint-Gilles and La Saline along the property. It offers a pleasant setting for relaxation or sports - jogging, cycling, mountain biking, thanks to a seafront promenade next to sand and lush vegetation. Bordered by filaos and tamarind trees, a stretch of white sand sinks gently into the lagoon: the bathing area is shallow, and has many fish and corals (you have to the submarine world with fins, mask and snorkel). When swimming, pay attention to the coral debris that can hurt your feet. If possible, however, it is better not to wear sandals because they cause damage to the fragile ecosystem of the lagoon. The beach is public, no sunshades or deckchairs are provided. Bring a towel and snorkeling equipment with you to take advantage of the setting. On the other side, there are also many picnic areas that are extremely popular with local residents of La Réunion, where they spend weekends with their families.

    To know

    The Village de Corail is particularly suitable for families with small children who wish to benefit from the facilities and offers an ideal location on one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. So it is less appropriate for holiday-makers seeking comfort and charm in the authentic atmosphere of La Réunion... The rooms, offered as bungalows, deserve some refurbishment. However, the hotel has adequate facilities, including for land sports. Once a week, the hotel organises a show with a folklore band.

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!
