Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The beach was very clean and well protected with all coral left on the beach. The lagoon area was great for sports such as kite surfing and paddle boarding

    One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited in my life. The water was very fresh - perfect to cool yourself in a hot day.

    A very well displayed aquarium with lovely fish and tanks. No big sharks or dolphins. Rather expensive considering it is so small. Sad that no effort is made to accommodate English (and other languages) as not all tourists paying entrance fees are French!

    The botanical garden is well laid out with a broad selection of tropical plants from the region. It is also easy to access.

    Today we had a great bike-ride down from the Maïdo. We decided to go for "the beginners-tour".
    Under the excellent guidance from Stefan and Daniel, we had a great experience. In 4 hours we descended 32 kilometers from altitude 2200 meters to sea level.
    As a beginner it was sometimes difficult to enjoy the view 😉, but the ride trough the sugarcanes, bamboo and forest was superbe!
    Thanks guys!

    The organisation was great for the day (a ride down the mountain from the Les Trois Bassins (a wonderful viewpoint). We had a bike check (good full suspension gear) and a short briefing (in French and English) on safety and braking (especially for those less familiar with this kind of riding) and then set off on a short run that got people familiar before the full ride.
    We rode at our own pace with stops every now and again to rest or grab a drink. At each stop he gave a short briefing on the next section so we knew what ti expect and where to turn etc. A great ride, through rocky areas, through forest and mud, through sugar cane plantations and local villages.
    I thoroughly recommend it, and there are varying levels of trip from beginner to experienced.

    This is a beautiful place with restaurants nearby. The swimming pool created in the sea to have a secure place without sharks is very useful. There are showers.
