Les Jardins d'Héva

Hotel in Hell-Bourg

This option perched on the southern outskirts of town has five colourful bungalows with a Creole flavour, each with two adjoining rooms. Three glitches: they don't have views of the Cirque, lack intimacy (terraces are shared) and are starting to show their age. On the plus side, guests can access for free the mini spa featuring a sauna and a Jacuzzi.

There's an on-site restaurant if you're feeling too lazy to travel elsewhere, and a small gift shop. The owner, Alice Deligey, speaks English.
