Dear Mahesh Apologies are in order for the delay at checkin and then the “cleanliness” of your room. This will be brought to the attention of the relevant departments. I assume though the complimentary upgrade to the 5th floor deluxe room as compensation was to your liking? Our new air-conditioning system works on a time delay to save on unnecessary... More

The overall hotel is good average rooms. Space is acceptable for the price. The beach is great, it is close to the main city, diving centre and water sport rental next to hotel.

Pool was closed which was great because we had access to the pool at the Savoy was beautiful. It was the loudest hotel I have ever stayed at, we were in a room with an adjoining door and could hear the people on the other breathing among other things. We moved to the Savoy part way through the week. It... More

Well it was a pretty average affair with the unfriendly hotel staff and the not-so-ocean-view rooms ( believe me it is a spam there are hell lot of trees for you to get any view ) . The only saving grace is the beach THE BEAU VALLON . I would give it a 2.5 maybe.

Building is ugly old and dated. The room was ok with flat screen tv and international channels. Bathroom had a blocked drain smell but was well stocked with toiletries. Balcony had lovely sea view.

Dear Eksayers Thank you for your comments. The hotel was first built in 1972, one of the first on the island. As you point out we are fortunate in the way the hotel offers the best location, right on the beach and close to numerous shops and restaurants.

The location of this hotel is superb! What with the white sandy beaches, the yatches littering the ocean, the happy honeymooners, ...I could go on and on. The magnificence of the destination overcompensated the small rooms, the obscenely high prices, the unreliable internet and the rigidity of the check-in and check-out procedures. The staff were however very helpful and always... More

Dear aherejons Seychelles is indeed a beautiful destination and has a lot to offer everyone! The fact though that it is small requires mostly everything to be imported and hardly anything is grown on the island to sustain the hotels that look for quality in the products that we use. We do our best though to purchase locally especially the... More
