It's quite hard to find a bar by the beach the Seychelles. This is a great place to grab something light to eat, drink a few beers and listen to some live music. The bar is actually online the beach which adds to the occasion.

This place is just fair. My room was very small with unpleasant smell. Breakfast buffet is not very good with few items, On the positive side it has a great beach location and good food at sushi restaurant. Overall this place is good for budget travellers. But then if you are on budget don't make the mistake of coming to... More

Dear Talsidd I must apologies for the inconvenience you experienced with the odour of the room. Our dedicated housekeeping team have a strict protocol to follow. One procedure is to ensure the bedroom is refreshed prior to a guest arrival which a few guests could find a little unsatisfactory due to the sensitivity of the room freshener we use. We... More

Excellent location. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and cooperative. Front desk manager Mr Viddura, Leo and the Manager all very helpful and made my stay a very comfortable one. The best thing about the hotel is that the beach is just one step down and there are supermarkets and eateries nearby. Definitely planning to return in future.

Privacy is something that cannot be expected in the ocean view balcony due to the structure of the building. The indian restaurant threw... More
