Spend three nights there, very good beach with soft sand, nice sea view and nice staff. We really spend happy time there, specially the magnificent sunset and the softness of the coastline last for long. Hope to come back to Seychelles again someday.

Do not stay here if you are a single woman. For my 1st week I was constantly ignored for food drink and room service. After making my feelings quite clear things did improve, clearly a holiday ruined.

We had an amazing stay at this hotel. What really made our stay was that we had paid the extra and booked one of the silhouette suites right on the beach. We bought nibbles and beer up the road from the supermarket and had drinkies on our deck every night for sunset. Stunning! The hotel is right in the middle... More

Dear Richard Thank you for your review and comments. The silhouette room does have the best of views as the balcony literally overlooks the beach giving an uninterrupted vista. If I may reply regarding your comments. Communication between the front office and reservations department has been addressed to prevent such occurrences happening.A decision was taken to introduce sound level restrictions... More

It's called Smart Choice Hotel and if you're on a limited budget this is your choice. The location is at middle of the Beau Vallon beach which is convenient and also grants easy access to those few shops and restaurants in the area. However I would not recommend this for your honeymoon hotel as the facility is not far from... More

Dear Lauri I am happy to report that the faulty lift was repaired in one day and is fully operational. The Islander Trader restaurant does indeed have the best views from any restaurant in Beau Vallon and offers a variety of choices during breakfast including a minimum 5 fruits, hot and cold dishes plus the reintroduced pancake station.

If you are looking for a hotel where service counts please do yourself a favour and don't stay at the coral strand resort. The staff are rude and unfriendly. Everything is an effort and service is so slow. All orders were generally one item short or wrong. I was continually searching for waiters to service but they were more intent... More

I traveled to Seychelles alone, so wanted to save a few dollars on accommodation. However, I also wanted easy access to the beach. Coral Strand satisfied both of those needs. The staff here is very helpful and friendly, the location is awesome (right on Beau Vallon Beach and within walking distance of stores, restaurants, and excursion outfitters), so overall I'm... More

We stayed at Coral Strand on our first night in the Seychelles, arriving off the flight from South Africa. Check-in service was mediocre, but prompt enough and we were shown to our room quite quickly; which was a relief after the travelling.
