The rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. a little old but they were renovating the last floor when I was there. It has access to the best public beach so if you are planning to spend the day relaxing it will be the perfect place.

The plus sides of the hotel are its nice location, right by a beach, it is fairly clean and the live bands that play at the bar. The staff is mostly friendly but with poor training, overworked and badly managed. They say they offer free wireless, but capability covers only about half of the number of guests. Overall, my feeling... More

I was unsure of this hotel after reading its reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. This is one of the least expensive resorts you can find in Seychelles and is great value for money. The beach is AMAZING (you don't have to go anywhere if you just want a relaxing beach holiday) and the hotel staff is extremely friendly and accommodating.... More

Stopped here for 8 nights in early June 2015. Room overlooking pool and garden and facing the sea. Double room, though not massive, was clean and comfortable, a little more storage space would have been welcome. Coffee/tea/water/fridge provided complimentary. Staff most pleasant and courteous and helpful at all times. Breakfast buffet was good and had plenty of choice we thought.... More

All in all not bad not good. The outdoor bar is a nice place to be in the evening but the for the rest everything is about average or just below. Main reason is that the entire facility is dated. Staff is friendly and location is nicely located near to the beach and some nice restaurants but there is nothing... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay at Coral Strand. The outdoor bar is indeed one of the idyllic location to sip a drink and watch beautiful sunsets. The structure of the hotel is certainly old part of local heritage, though renovations has been done without disturbing the structure. The structure adds a certain uniqueness to the... More

I stayed in Coral Strand Hotel during Chinese New Year. We heard Chinese songs in the lobby and the decoration in the restaurant looked very nice. We saw the lion dancing in the evening. That brought us the sense of belongings. Leo was very friendly and he helped us arrange trips very well. Especially Catamaran sunset cruise was very nice!!!!... More

O.K. I was there at Coral Strand in 1976 Independence year, long before most anyone had heard of Seychelles and probably thought they were in the Caribbean!! I had a fabulous time because the local people are so friendly and laid back (not to say horizontal!!) If you decide to go take Sterling or US Dollars (why waste time hitting... More

A lovely holiday for the whole family (two adults, one child) in May. We stayed in a Deluxe one bedroom suite which was a perfect size for a family of three.
