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.

We thoroughly enjoyed or stay in December. We were lucky to be placed in a large suite wich was quite private. The hotel is right on the beach but a bit away from the shark net section further along, so you need to stroll down the beach for about 500 m to swim in the sea. The hotel's archtecture is a bit quirky and centerrs around a lage winding swimmimg pool. Quite unique! Some the rooms are a bit open and lack privacy without closing the curtains permantly. Best staff and service of the 4 hotels we stayed in while on the Island.

Surely once nice hotel that would need to be redone. The location with direct beach access is very nice and the breakfast was great and the breakfast staff was very nice and welcoming.
We had however expected more for the price we paid. When we arrived the drains in the bathroom were clogged. We also ate dinner at the restaurant once and unfortunately they have no experience with allergenes.

No hotel on the island deserves a four star rating but this hotel was exceptionally poor. Although Le Saint Alexis has a lovely location on the beach it is diminished by the quality of the rooms that are on par with a Motel 6. Service in the restaurant was exquisite but unfortunately it was completely negated by the incompetent, uninformed and argumentative service at the front desk. Absolute worst hotel service I have experienced in my life. Managers are completely incompetent and obviously have no interest in return clients.

Have just returned from Reunion.
The hotel was great. The photos don't do it justice. Do go for a room with direct access to the pool. It makes it so easy just to hang-out there. The beach is beautiful but can be very hot at midday.

Staying at the hotel right now. I came here to chill out for a few days while my husband is hiking.
- Hotel is nice but far from what I was expecting. It definitely needs a good refurnishment. Getting quite old... Stuck in the 90's
- Wifi is too slow. No chance to watch a movie or even open videos
- Food at the bar is pretty average. Nothing special. I am pretty sure that the pizza I ate was frozen :-)
I did not try the restaurant.
- Buffet breakfast is too simple. It is not worth 25€!
- Location of the resort is the best...
- Staff is very polite and as friendly as French people can be.

Don't waste your money. We stayed at the hotel only one night and found ants on the bed. Ants bit my whole body the whole night!! I did NOT sleep at all. I was very disappointing in the service too as the receptionist did not even bother to listen to us because she was arguing over the phone with a colleague. The spa was not working.
You'd better go to Lux. At least, it will be worth your money.

I spent 2 nights at this property during a business trip @reunion island. In my opinion it is highly overly rated.

Positive points: Location is good... Hotel is beachfront... numerous restaurants to choose from within walking distance... the pool concept is great...

Negative points: super expensive..wifi super slow, almost unavailable... the lobby needs renovation.. service can be much improved... staff attitude also needs improvement... facilities in room is very limited: no complimentary coffee or water... also for ladies having long hair, it gets complicated to wash it in the bathtub ... for the same price in Mauritius, you are treated like royalty...

I stayed 3 nights.
Abont 1 hours drive from Aeroport Roland Garros, there are beautiful white sand beach just front of this hotel. You may also enjoy swimming pool, it is very unique style that tower is surrounded by pool, feeling like island. Room is very confortable and quiet, clean, enough space for your holiday. They provide reasonable and combination price with room fee in case you would like to use SPA menu. They have lots of SPA menu, all staff would be very kind to inform you.
You may enjoy local cuisine at Restaurant., which is located top floor, you can enjoy beautiful sunset from your seat. The bar also very wonderful atomosphere, all staff are very kind and well trained.
If you would like to walk around, Saint Gil Les Bains might be the best. There are some local restaurant and bakery shops, souvenir shop... etc.

We had the best week in La Réunion. We took a trip around the Island and stayed in a couple of hotels around the Island. The best hotel we visted was this one. The service was great, the rooms outstanding, the vieuw, the restaurants... everything was fantastic.

If we come back to La réunion we will absolutily go back to this hotel.

It's not that old, but it certainly needs renovations. Not all rooms have views - virtually none of them have sea views; mainly the garden, and quite frankly, I didn't find them comfortable.

Effectivement impossible de faire autrement que de laisser les rideaux tirés pour plus d’intimité car les chambres sont toutes vis à vis les unes des autres . Ça peut être problématique en effet. Tout comme la magnifique piscine qui contourne l’hôtel et qui passe obligatoirement devant les petites terrasses privées des chambres situées au rez-de-chaussée...
