We stayed here in late August.. the hotel is located right on the beach. Plenty of sunbeds, small pool (but the beach is the main attraction). The good: friendly staff, great location, good food (breakfast was nice - they also have an Italian Chef who oversees the dinner buffet which was delicious) , reasonably priced compared to other properties in...

The best hotel in Seychelles, at Beau Vallon. The rooms are well cleaned and the italian chef is simply the best. You can also drink very good cocktails, or simply have a good pizza with chips. It's the best place to stay in at Mahè.

Everything was on a really high level, from the warm check-in welcome (thank you Leo and Kevin), to the check-out. The room was very clean, safe big enough for 15" laptop, everyday free water bottles, clean beach towels, etc. Breakfasts were great. Omelettes were the best in Seychelles. The cook making them didn't wear a name tag so I have... More

We stayed 3 days at Coral Strand during our holiday at Seychelles. The hotel is nice even though it looks a bit old and our room was comfortable. The location was great since it is situated right in front of the beach. The staff was professional and helpful. The buffet was good with a nice variety of food. The pool... More

This old hotel is located on the beautiful Beau Vallon Beach. The rooms are ok, but service is not. Our friends did not get the reserved and payed room with ocean view but only garden view. Main guests from Russia, therefore personel strong related to that group of guests. Extrem long waiting times for your orders in all restaurants. Rooms... More

After a 7 hour wait, we finally got access to our room. Management recognized their failure and did a wonderful job in making our stay very enjoyable. A big cinplement to Dalya the manager on duty and restaurant manager The suchi bar is probably the best on the islands and the service is perfect.

The hotel is really good value for money, the staff were really nice at the time of check-in, and everything is exaclty how we expect it to be. Service on the terrace at this hour (23:00) might be a bit slow, but not... More

The only reason I went to Coral Strand more than once is because I was craving sushi, and it was the nearest restaurant to where we are staying. Under the same owners as the neighboring Savoy, these two hotels seem to have a lot more in common - terrible customer service. The staff were rude, one telling us she's too... More
