Several things in the room either did not work properly or were broken.
The water in the lagoon

Infrastructures (bedroom quarters) start aging, might need to be refursbished.

Terrible value for money, very high food and drinks prices, mediocre cuisine (even Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve dinners weren't great). Hotel definately needs renovation, concierge is not very professional and evening entertainment offering is poor. Apparently it's the only 5 star hotel on Reunion, but it does not live up to the rating - it is more a 3 star facility.
Nice beach (a lot of seashell though - it is located by the lagoon and the beach is not being cleaned up regularly), pleasant yet not very competent staff.

Loved the Location, the food -particularly in the Orangerie and the restaurant on the beach, the Breakfast Buffets. Jacques Antony was an excellent chef - his fish dishes were Divine!

- terribly overpriced - the rooms are quite small/ decoration isn't what I expected - more of a 4 stars hotel than a 5
- friendly staff - great service - very good location - feels like holidays

I found our room small and austere. The bathroom is very tiny for any decent hotel room, let alone a 5-star hotel room. And no bidet in a French hotel? Vraiment!? The breakfast is good but there is one major concern that a couple other online reviewers have mentioned: the many birds that feed off the diners’ tables and serving tables. I ate 10 breakfasts at the LUX and experienced immediate diarrhea following eight of those breakfasts. The many birds routinely scamper around and eat from the bread cutting board, bowls of bread and other foods, and descend on diners’ tables if the diner briefly leaves. It is very unhygienic and in most countries, health authorities would close such a restaurant. It needs to be corrected. The one exception of the helpful staff occurred when I asked Concierge Services where I should catch the Express Bus back to St Denis. I was told to skip the nearby Bruniquel stop and walk to the next stop, L’Hermitage. But when I did just that, I found the Express Bus did not stop at L’Hermitage, but rather stopped next a couple kilometers farther on. I ended up on a local bus to St Denis, it took one hour just to reach St. Paul, and I nearly missed my flight to London. A very stressful way to end my 10 night stay at the LUX. So all in all, a 3.5 star experience for me, and I would not stay at a LUX Hotel again.
LUX staff was friendly and largely helpful (with one exception). Breakfast was good with one major concern.

- Something to think about for the next hotel refurbishment- the bed in the room could be a little more comfortable like the Sofitel bed,and the furnishings a little more chic. I found them a little traditional.
-After a few initial issues, the service from the staff flowed and they took real care of the detail. - Great, peaceful location with a excellent variety of activities - Superb food and service in the restaurants. - Lovely,comfortable room

Food is overpriced; Having birds flying on the breakfast buffet is unhygienic and unacceptable for a 5-star hotel; breakfast buffet was good but would benefit from more variety.
Friendliness of the staff (in particular Agnes, one of the concierges); concierge service, in general; excellent rooms and beds; amazing pool; open air cinema (with popcorn!); wonderful beach.

The restaurant La plage is a little over priced and service is slow and the staff less friendly. I would rather recommend the snack bar/restaurant which is really good and the staff is very nice.
Very relaxing, beautiful clean beach, friendly staff, comfortable room.

Sometimes hard to pay your bill for meals as staff keep moving around.
Lots of activities at the weekend. Great staff at the beach bar and some at the normal bar.

Smokers in adjacent rooms preventing us from enjoying sitting outside room and at mealtimes (in bar area)
Sheer luxury Location Beach immediately in front of room Every aspect had been thought of and catered for (beach towels, snorkelling kit,etc)

Dampness in bathroom. Layout of bathroom and size. Dampness in bathroom. Layout of bathroom and size. To eat at the casual restaurant facilities in the hotel was really too expensive for what was being served. Alcohol in general was extremely expensive and the cocktails were not good at all. I ordered an Irish whiskey before dinner one evening. The whiskey barely covered bottom of the glass... To our surprise, on the last evening we did not get our usual bottle of fresh water and get our bed turned down…. My wife and I also noticed that while there were seminar groups or weddings in the hotel, little attention was given to the other guests… on our last evening, we waited 1 hour to be served at dinner and the food was cold…This I believe is not 5 star service…
The welcome. Very, very friendly staff. The Orangerie Restaurant was excellent albeit pricey.

While shark-free and beautiful, the beach was not pleasant to walk on or swim in - too many sea shells and other debris that cut your feet. Bring water shoes!
A clean, quiet and relaxing hotel with direct access to a shark-free beach, and the best restaurant we could find in the area! Friendly staff, good (though sometimes slow) service, and a fun but not intrusive entertainment program.

Any chance of dropping the price of a beer?
All the staff were brilliant. The way the accommodation has been planned out is great. Food was just fine for us Location was super. Lagoon lovely and safe. Swimming pool is deceptively large (good pool). Would we go back to Reunion? yes. Would We go back to LUX? Yes (but there is so much to do in Reunion you may need to plan your accommodation in accordance to your activities). Concierge service was just absolutely brilliant (Benjamin, Alexandra and Marine were real stars).
