The room was dark and sterile. Felt a little bit like a spacious youth hostel room. The kitchen was on the balcony separated from the outside by a garage door which also acted as the only window. So you had a choice of a dark room or a kitchen unprotected from bugs and ants and such. The photographs on the website are done by a very talented photographer and it is difficult to see resemblance once one is in the room.
All in all a very strange place to stay.
Reception staff was nice, though.

From the homepage we expected bright rooms, a beautiful view and a modern apartment. Instead we got a room with no daylight, unless we opened a kind of garage shutter which opened towards a patch of soil and a gutter. When other guests arrived, we constantly had their cigarette smoke drifting into our kitchen.
What we didn't understand is why they put us into this room, because we had the impression that the other rooms with a beautiful view were not booked for days.
Pros: In the beginning, the nights were very quiet. The nearby supermarket is very well equipped and the region is really recommendable because it is very dry and warm with lots of sunshine.

Room tip: Make sure you get a room with a view.

Nice hotel and clean rooms, but the service was cold compare to everywhere we went in Réunion. We didn't like the location so much, and the design was not our taste. Nice swimming pool. We would have rated much higher if the service was good, but we were disappointed in the poor welcoming. Don't think I would come back.

Tama is an "Apart - hotel" : a hotel with limited self catering facilities. The rooms are fairly new and our room had a view of a wall. The hotel staff also decided to place 2 sun loungers against this wall, resulting in us having zero privacy during our stay. (There was somehow always people using these sun loungers staring at us while we cook, eat, dress etc.) This really annoyed us, and we moved the sun loungers to the pool area. The next day they were back. I do find it interesting that the couple (us) that stayed there the longest, was the couple who ended up with a room with zero views.

The room is only partially serviced. Meaning the cleaners only clean the sleeping area; NOT the kitchen. If you decide to use the kitchen you have to wash the dishes yourself. Everything im the kitchen was probably bought at a 50c store. I have only ever seen such cheap wine glasses at the cheapest of cheap camping sites.

The pool area is lovely and very relaxing.

The reception staff are not very friendly. I'm not sure if they got their training in Paris, or the fact that they speak very little English.

And finally: Tama is only 5min from St Gilles and fairly well located for the price.

We would probably not stay there again.

Room tip: Ask for a room facing the valley.

The Tama Hotel was much as expected as booked through the internet. We knew it was a limited facility location. It is very convenient off the highway and just on the edge of the " centre ville " of St Gilles so you can avoid too much traffic as you come and go. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful too.

The room is compact but adequate, with air conditioning. The modern bathroom and shower were much appreciated compared to what else is around Reunion. The balcony as a kitchenette was well stocked and useful. With the fridge there is no need to pay Euro 12 for a hotel breakfast. There is a Score supermarket close by but hills would make walking quite tough unless you are very fit. Also hot and humid in December.

You need a car to explore Reunion but the hotel only has 2 small parking areas to accommodate about 14 - 16 cars but have 66 ( approx) rooms. This could be a negative but we were fairly lucky with our times.

There are lots of restaurants and take away food shops in the coastal town. This location is also a good base to go to L'Eperon, Maido and even Dos D'Ane to view the mountains. It is 15 minutes to St Paul - Friday night market and more shopping. We were happy with our experience and choice.

Room tip: Many options so read and check carefully before you book
