Nice place to relax and sleep. Not recommended for business trip. Food was great. Friendly staff. Room 114 was huge and comfortable. Water of the wash basin was too thin and broken shower handle. Bring your own shower gel and shampoo. Careful of mice and insects. The road leading to the place was terrible. Not recommended for those who underwent surgery. Although the quietness, tranquility and peace is unbeatable.

The location was stunning, wild and calm. The view from the room was mind blowing. The staffs were very helpful and assisted with the baby. We recommend Mrs. Samuella for a good massage, very nice and know her job.

Spent five nights at the small cosy place. Location is brilliant, very peaceful, views of the Ocean is great and only a minute from quiet beach. The staff are very friendly and polite. The chef is cool and food is nice and variety is fair. The room has air con and cleaned everyday which is very nice. Being a tropical Island there are lots of insects etc which is expected but can sometimes be annoying especially during dinner time. Access to the hotel is challenging as the car hire company stated that they will no longer offer their vehicle to visitors staying at La Belle Rodriguaise. I hired a car initially but as soon as i took the vehicle the car rental company called me to advise that i should not drive to the hotel due to the access unsuitable for cars. They kindly switched the car with a 4*4 as a gesture of goodwill and confirmed they will not hire vehicles to visitors staying here due ti unsuitable rocky access. The owners do offer airport transfer and i would recommend this. However if you need to drive from and to the accommodation during your stay, then you got to find rental company who will allow their vehicle to be driven there. I did express my concerns to the owners and hopefully something can be done about this in near future as the location has amazing views and very unique in many ways. On the overall had a nice stay.

During our stay in Rodrigues we wanted absolutely to go to La belle Rodriguaise for a lunch.
But we could not reach there despite having an SUV car.
The roads to La Belle Rodriguaise in Graviers is impracticable.We called the reception at La Belle Rodriguaise to inform them that we are somewhere near the Auberge and we cannot drive through since we had an SUV.
We requested them to send us a 4 x 4 which we were ready to pay,but the receptionist gave us a cold call.
We waited and called our SUV owner operator and he requested us not to go since we may cause damage to the car as the road is not good at all
I understand that the owner wants to keep the area natural .But if they want to be accessible better think about improving infrastructure first and hire people with proper training to customer care.

Probably the worst experience we had in Rodrigues. It was so bad that we accepted to forfeit around EUR 200 instead of staying there. The hotel is poorly lit and so far from everything. There was no one to welcome us and we were made to wait in the dark. They were not even aware of our arrival date despite us having booked there months ago and gave us a dirty and mouldy room. There was no tissue paper, blanket in the room. Then they told us that the kitchen is closed (mind you, we had just arrived from the airport) and there is no dinner. The guy even dared to tell us, (come help me in the kitchen, i will see if there is something for you). So i guess they scraped the bottom of pans and gave us a tiny portion of a dinner. The next day, when we tried to speak to the owner, well the owner was not reachable. He or she was playing hide and seek and would not face us despite multiple phone calls. It felt like we were prisoners. Any honest business would have refunded us our money if there were grave complaints like that but they took our money and did not refund us. I will never recommend this hotel to anyone.

Friendly staff and hood family guest house. The owner and his wife gave us a warm welcome. Food was great. The site is also good, but quite far from main roads especially if travelling with kids and elderly people. One suggestion: Owner should provide a shuttle service.

greetings from La Belle Rodriguaise, We thank you for your stay at our hotel It was really nice to welcome you and to know that the food and friendly staff meet your expectations. indeed we are 1.8 kms from tarred main road which may be a draw back for elderly and kids, but some people enjoy this walk under filaos trees by sea side to catch the bus. we do offer suttle service on request. We will as from now make sure that our guests are aware of this service by doing a small pamplet.thank you so much for this great suggestion, we do appreciate. hope to wecome you once more. best regards, Francoise Baptiste.

We spent 1 week at "La Belle Rodriguaise".
Location is good (nice beach in front of the hotel), if you wish to do some kite surf, you would have to walk for 15 minutes only to reach the the spot.
However, we were quite disappointed regarding the cooking, which was not abundant (if you do eat a lot, don't go there !!).
Breakfast was poor as well.
Also, contacts with our hosts were poor & quite cold.
The swimming pool was out of order (not mentionned by our hosts before our arrival, otherwise we would had booked another hotel), no internet as mentionned on our guide book, no climatization in the rooms.
But as we were outside during the day, visiting that beautiful island, we did appreciate our stay !

Greetings from La Belle Rodriguaise, We thank you for your review and to have appreciated our location and the beach. we greatly apologize that the cooking and local typical food was not what you were expecting. we always aim to do our best to satisfy guests as amount and quality, we have a baker for a variety of local cakes for breakfast. wifi is at lobby and restaurant and all rooms have now air cond. as swimming pool is with sea water , it may require more regular service and may be out of order for sometimes. once more, we are so sad of all the inconveniences you encountered during your stay, best regards, La Belle Rodriguaise.

The situation of this hotel is very nice on the windswept beach at Graviers, but the rooms are very very basic and not very confortable. Our room had no chairs and no table, even for the balcony. The room did not smell fresh and had not been well cleaned behind the bed.

Bizarrely, on our second day the soap was removed from the bathroom when they saw we didn't use it.

The food is bland, I have no idea why it is celebrated in a cook book - though I will say their book is a nice record of island life, if not cuisine. There was frequently insufficient food to satisfy all of the guests and the buffet style limits it to a certain mass produced stodge. I suspect that at one time the food may have been better when Francois was more involved before moving on to grander things.

Mr Laval runs the place most of the time and is a shifty character to say the least. It is remarkable that most questions / recommendations seem to circuitously end up with him organising something that the family will financially gain from - i.e. "Don't take the bus, takes a very long time and inconvenient" … not true, the bus was charming, efficient and takes 45 mins to town. It is also a lot cheaper than hiring (his) cars from him. Hire a car in town, also cheaper.

There are some good things though… It is hard to find budget accommodation along this coast, with the other option at Morouk Ebony being a very resort style hotel and costing a lot more. The walks are spectacular and Laval advises well on those matters.

The tortoise sanctuary is also a great trip to make.

In short. This place is a good budget option as long as you are expecting traveller functionality and not real comfort, but don't believe the hype about the food and don't get stung for the "extras" that are recommended to you.
