stayed here for 2 nights on a recent business trip. The hotel is in serious need of a revamp. Rooms are comfortable, but good luck trying to sleep with the sound coming from generators outside your room. Sounded like a truck idling in the room. Room service is pathetic, nothing on the menu is ever available and when food comes,... More

The Seychelles are beyond a doubt one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Tropical forests, hidden coves, crystal waters, perfect beaches...what more could you ask for? The general lack of commercialisation means that the beaches are free of hawkers and peddlers and there is a general sense of calm and quiet all all over these little islands...........EXCEPT the...

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.

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

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.
