We stayed here on our honeymoon, after having been pampered by the pool and beach for three days at the Hilton in Mahe, we came to La Digue to see the island, its beaches, the people and stretch our legs.
The Hotel is brilliantly situated to explore the island. If it is luxury you are after, then look elsewhere, but if you go with a realistic idea of what is offered, this place is great. The food was very good and we could easily have eaten the octopus curry every night. The chap singing reggae in vibrato was great!
The rooms are basic. But our opinion is that all we wanted was a comfortable bed and a good shower. Outside of this we were all across the island, so to arrive back to a dip in the pool, drink on the balcony and sundown as the Bats came out was great.
The french owner is a hoot, very helpful and eager you enjoy the stay too. Our friendly lizards and Geckos were a constant source of evening entertainment too.
It may not be in the realms of some of the other hotels, but for a cheaper stay on a truly beautiful island you could do far worse. We didnt get bikes, we walked everywhere and saw the entire island at a beatiful pace and were lucky enough to see a Veuve too. in our opinion you shouldnt be heading to LaDigue to sit by a swanky pool, it would be a wasted trip not to have seen the beaches and island.
