    Location 6.5 /10

    The hotel is located on the beach of the Hermitage, 2 miles south of Saint-Gilles and 24 miles from the airport at Saint-Denis. For the transfer, expect about 45 to 90 minutes, depending on traffic.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The 42 rooms of the Creoles are categorised into 32 twin bed rooms and 10 double bed rooms. All overlook the swimming pool. Rather spacious, they have a balcony with garden furniture in teak. Made of bright rattan, the room's furniture adds a pleasant exotic touch. The pale yellow walls and floral printed fabrics combine to give a stylish design. As for the amenities, a good level of comfort is provided: air conditioning, a safe, a mini bar, telephone and satellite television (broadcasting Euronews and movie channels). The bathrooms have showers and hair dryers.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    Built in 1996 and renovated in 2003, the Creoles hotel consists of a main building and nine traditional style villas encircling a swimming pool and relaxation areas. Designed as a place where you won't want to linger, the reception area is simple and modest (rattan armchairs, tables of varnished wood and columns painted in light yellow). It is equipped with large bay windows overlooking the swimming pool. With an area of over 2,580 ft², the pool is big enough for long swims, if there is no big crowd in the water. Small in size but very well organised, the sun lounge is bordered by banana and dwarf palm trees. It has deckchairs, mattresses and sunshades.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Located in the main building, the restaurant overlooks the swimming pool. Breakfast is served buffet style. It consists of cereals, buns, pastries, cheese, cold cuts and fresh fruits. In the evening, dinner is served from a menu, except on Tuesday, when Creole cuisine is served buffet style. Simple but tasty, the cuisine consists of a selection of international recipes and local specialties such as curried pork or chicken. To get rid of the munchies in the middle of the day, a snack bar by the pool serves salads, pastas, sandwiches and hamburgers.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    The Creoles does not benefit from a location on the seafront but the customers have access to the beach of the Récif, a hotel located on the other side of the road and belonging to the same hotel group. The beach, namely the Hermitage, offers a pleasant place for idleness. Bordered by filao trees, it is a broad band of white sand that sinks gently into the lagoon. When swimming, pay attention to the coral debris that can hurt your feet. It is better not to wear sandals because they cause damage to the fragile ecosystem of the lagoon. As for the facilities, sunshades and deckchairs are available. However, you have to bring your own snorkeling equipment, as flippers, masks and snorkels are not leased on the spot.

    To know

    A hotel belonging to the same hotel group as the Villas du Lagon, the Creoles is a great place to stay for those who want modest accommodation for relaxation and excursions around the island. Carefully designed, its architecture helps maintain both peace and intimacy, even if the hotel is not located on a very broad area.

      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.

      The Recif is a very decent 3 star family-oriented establishment owned by the Naïade group. 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!
