We had a great stay at the Palm. Excellent facilities and very helpful and friendly staff that could assist in English. Wide selection of drinks and food, excellent views to Grande Anse beach and scrumptious breakfast!! Good location for a South Reunion Experience, staff very knowledgeable as to tourist excursions and sights. They were also giving great tips as to the excursions etc. Could also note their commitment to the Ecolable Ethos. Would highly recommend!!
beautifully located - magnificent view
We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. Overall, we 've stayed several times in 4 star hotels at other locations, the level at Réunion seems to be lower anyhow. Compared to other hotels in la Réunion, Palm Hotel seemed to be the better one: better maintained, more stylish, more service from the staff. We received an upgrade to a junior suite, which was a really pleasant surprise as it came with a hottub outside, an extra room/bed and an outside shower. Definitely, this contributed to the positive overall experience. The hotel is beautifully located, although no direct access to the beach below. For the brave, there is an adventurous path downhill (and back up again afterwards) which I did two times. Not to try if you have no proper shoes nor long pants! But if you do this, you can continue to hike up to the "cap" which delivers magnificent views and I definitely recommend. When we booked this hotel, a shuttle service was posted, although i didnt see it. Staying here we opted for the half board, which we wouldnt do again if we would have known. Personally, we dont have to fine dine "french cuisine" every day, we would have rather opted for a light salad or something. This was our main challenge at this hotel: lunch as well as dinner offered very few "light" options, basically there were almost no salads or a light pasta on neither menus. The only option for lunch or light dinner that remained were the tapas (they were very good!). We missed truly, during our entire trip at Reunion, "light" dishes with vegetables. So my recommendation would be Palm hotel to think about offering for lunch and dinner some international, "summery" dishes also, for those not interested in duck, foie gras, fish or beef on a daily basis. Dont misunderstand me, the food was good, it was just too heavy for our way of living.
Very good hotel, worth the stay
We spent a few days here. The staff is friendly, the food very good, breakfast offers plenty of choice (cooked) and the swimming pools are great. Traffic in the area is very busy, with lots of traffic jams, but the hotel can't change that. The nearby beach is worth a visit, but I would take the car (good carpark) as the "walk" is very sporty
Excellent hotel for a luxury and relaxing holiday!
Spend seven nights in the Palm Hotel and Spa in late December. From the arrival we enjoyed every moment in this fantastic environment. Had the chance to stay in two different kind of rooms - a junior suite and a lodge - and both were very impressive. Size of the rooms, design and facilities exceeded our expectations. The hotel is located some 200 meters above the bay and offers spectacular views, especially for the sun set. The employees were very friendly and always very helpful. The attention was perfect and very personal. The pool is nice with a great sea view and although the hotel was fully booked, there was always enough space to relax in a quite environment. Last but not least, the restaurant deserves a special comment. Food is excellent and offers great international/French cuisine with local ingredients and tastes. If there is anything that could be further improved, than we would have wished a bigger variety of fresh local fruits, considering the great choice of fruits available on the island. My wife also enjoyed the nice spa. Altogether - a great five star hotel with a very personal touch.
A definite hit - something for everyone
We spent 4 nights here and loved every minute. From a super friendly welcome with hot towels and cool drink to great cocktails and live music, it couldn’t have been a better choice. We booked a larger room which was perfect-great balcony, huge shower and plenty of room space as well as a large fridge. TV screen huge too with good channels. No English ones which would have been nice though. Although low season meant food options were slightly limited ,we ate there every night. If I went again I would book half board. Pools, viewpoints and bars as well as breakfast buffet were great. Staff were friendly. There is also a super little walk down to the beach from where you can hike or swim in the manmade lagoon. The location is great for Le Sud Sauvage and there are other eating options nearby. Amazing holiday
