I stayed quite a while at Case Corail. It was a great experience. The staff is extremely kind and warm, giving you "deux bises" when you see them in the morning. Herve is a really cool guy; he was very generous with his time. He even invited me to the birthday party of one of his friends. His girlfriend, Natalie, was also nice.
There are two amazing dogs there - Caramel, who is very athletic and a celebrity in the village, and his loving mother, Minuet. It was amazing to see the affection between the two dogs! They are very loving and protective housemates. The dinners were terrific - tea punch, and incredible meals including grilled lamb.
The location is excellent - right on the beach, with excellent hiking trails to St. Francois, where you can stop off for BBQ at Chez Robert. There is snorkeling in the Anse Bouteille and kite surfing at Anse Marouk. The tyrolean and Jardin de Cinq Sens is not far away, either. This is an authentic experience of Rodrigues, and I highly recommend it.
