My wife and I visited Reunion island for seven nights and stayed at the Hotel Boucan Canot. It has a fantastic location right on the beach front. The rooms are quite standard and the bathrooms do need to be updated a bit. The staff don't speak much English but are still very kind and friendly and try to help you...

Setting can't be better, right on the beach, but also close to the nice little street restaurants! Bit expensive for us South Africans paying with our cheap rands, but I suppose if you earn euros it would...

Reception very friendly and efficient. Our room was a suite and was spacious, clean and sea facing with a balcony. Hotel is right on the beach and sunsets were spectacular. The hotel is very close to a nearby strip which had dozens of restaurants to suit all types. Breakfasts in the hotel were excellent and we found the service to...

The hotel is fantastically located with suites offering amazing views. Local food is walking distance away and on the beachfront. The staff at the front desk are amazingly helpful in every way from late check outs to arranging tours. The view from our large suite was stunning as are the views from the bar area. The pool is empty and...

The hotel is located at the end of the beach, walking distance from great casual eating and drinking places. The rooms are beautiful - we got a junior suite and loved the space and views (higher floor). The staff at the front desk and bar are incredibly helpful and polite. The only negative was poor service at the restaurant and...

It's my second time to Boucan Canot. Atmosfere is really nice, rooms have a very personal feeling about them and bathroom is really roomy. Breakfast is served with a beautiful view on the beach, and in the evening you can have drinks in the terrasse/garden overlooking the sea and the pool. By the way: they have put nets down to...

This hotel has two of the most important criteria covered for a great stay. First is location- look on Google Earth. On the beach, 1 minute from the coast road and 5 minuetes from the MB ain island highway. Second is the staff - courteous, knowledgeable and organised.

This is a wonderful hotel to stay in if you are new to Reunion. It is definitely on the right side of the island for good weather and the beach is very nice. We paid for breakfast and dinner as part of our package and while the food was great, we became very bored with dinner by the 5th day...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Boucan Canot combines the authenticity of a 'Creole' residence with a modern comfort, a beautiful charming hotel where intimacy and discrete luxury hold the first roles. Today, four major assets characterize the hotel: an ideal situation, a typically local decoration, a top-of-the-range service and a refined gastronomy.An luxury resort on the beach, offering a unique panoramic sight on the ocean. A preserved natural site combined with a typically local architecture. A greenery treasure, anchored on a basalt spur, beat by the softness of the trade winds. ... more   less
