We had lunch on the Restaurant terrasse with a very nice sea view. Very friendly staff, food very good ( except nougat glace presented icy, maybe directly from ice room), anyway we had very nice food, fresh fish and well presented. Overall a bit expensive place but once, it is worth. Pedestrian zone and beach at 3 mn walk (...

The location is stunning. The hotel is situated right on the beach accross from the tidal pool at the one end of reputedly the best beach in Reunion. The hotel has an airy, pleasant feel to it. The room was well appointed and bedding was great. The bathroom was big, maybe a bit old fashioned, with a separate shower. The...

Stayed 3 nights as family of 4 and we absolutely loved it! So pleased we chose this hotel for our first nights on the island. We stayed in a senior suite, which had amazing views of the ocean and pool, 2 terrasses and a jaccuzzi (which we used once despite the heat!). The room was very good. Breakfast was excellent....

We stayed for 14 nights in Feb 2017 in a Junior Suite, we opted for Boucan Canot over the only 5* star hotel on the island as we thought this (being a smaller hotel) would be more friendly and personal – it was! we cannot praise the Hotel Reception staff enough, they were always kind and helpful , however the...

The room is great. Location also. Small things matters to me: you book the most expensive room with jacuzzi and they charge you for a Nespresso coffee capsule 1 EUR?! Seriously!!! There was no a bottle of water in the room- again extra charge. Our bar stayed empty for one day. In general, service really poor

We got this hotel advised from our booking agency as we were looking for something nice to spend our honeymoon at. As Reunion is lacking beach access, we thought it might be a good place and in that respect it is. The hotel is classified as a 4 star which is overrated in terms of the appeal as for that...

This is an ideally located hotel with the most beautiful views and on the beach. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to assist in any way they can. The meals are very expensive, but overall our stay was magical.

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. A 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
