The hotel is staffed with extremely friendly and well trained staff, from the moment we arrived everything run smoothly and efficiently. The hotel is located next to a great swimming beach that is protected with shark nets and a full time life guard station. You can choose to swim in many locations, firstly the hotel pool, the sea or the...

We had a fantastic time at Hotel Boucan Canot! We were on our honeymoon and my husband decided to end the holiday with a bang and booked the senior luxury suite on the top floor of the hotel. The suite is very spacious and offers two balconies, one with Jacuzzi and two lounge areas with international TV channels (please do...

People say this is the best hotel in Reunion. It is expensive and on the beach. I stayed 3 days and the price was over 200 Euros. The room was average, there was no lift, I had a view of an old closed building and the pool was small. People also praise the gastronomic cuisine. I ate in the restaurant...

I was travelling with my rather frail mother on the occasion of her 88th birthday. The staff went out of their way to make our visit very special and nothing was too much bother for them. Our room (a senior suite on the top floor) had spectacular views and was clean and well-appointed. My mother particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi, which...

Location in reality is superb as seen at the TripAdvisor photo. Picturesque wide beach, chaotic black lava intrusion at its right end with a natural pool delicately embedded into it, out of formal gentle and effective staff, small charming esplanade near the hotel with 2-4 French cuisine restaurants, fantastic weather at fantastic La Reunion. Unforgettable

View to die for, just in front of your balcony! Close to restaurants, and decent food! Great place to chill and relax, with the local beers..! Highly recommended! Staffs are friendly and helpful.. However, wifi is bad and breakfast is so-so.

The hotel offers nicely decorated and comfortable rooms, an excellent service, a good breakfast and a direct access to one of the best beaches in la Réunion. The hotel itself is very quiet but close to animated streets with plenty of restaurants and bars. Highly recommended.

As always a pleasure to come back to the Boucan Canot. Due to meetings I have stayed in some hotels in the Northern part of the island but none could beat the atmosphere and excellent location of the Boucan Canot.

We had a lovely 5 day stay at the end of our 2 week trip to La Reunion - what a treat it was. We had booked a superior double room - it was worth the bit extra to have a bit more space and a lounge area to relax in. The room was very well decorated and had a...

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
