Situated a stone's throw from the famous Anse Volbert / Côte d'Or beach, this place is ideally situated - you literally cross the road in your costume and you are on the beach which was always virtually empty when we were there. The warm still waters and powdery white sand makes you want to stay in the water for hours!... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, it was a good experience, as the price is affordable and that is difficult to find on Praslin! The best restaurant we found is next door, and it is safe walking distance to a grocery store, restaurants and beaches. Our only problem being that our room was directly beside the road and the bus... More

We stayed with 4 adults in the very spacious villa. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a huge kitchen and nice living. You can easily stay here with 6 persons which makes it an great value for money on the seychelles. It's clean, the beds are good, the shower good, it has a small safe (and they have a guard)....

The website of this place seemed a bit weird, and you couldn't make a reservation without sending a fax to confirm the debit of part of the cost, so we almost got discouraged by it, but don't be, it's completely trustworthy and our room was there ready upon our arrival, with a very friendly receptionist! Big rooms right across the... More

The extraordinary friendly reception of all the personell impressed us. The hotel is not a luxuary place but very clean, well planned, spacious apartments and a nice garden, less than a hundred metres from the beach. The hotel offers boat excursions for fishing and/or visits to nearby islands, some of which have nature reserves with guides and walking trails. Our... More

we stayed at l'hirondelle without booking, they were very accomodating considering our budget didn't allow for their rate, they graciously helped us out! The room had a balcony looking directly acrros to the marvellous blue lagoon. No tv in the room wich was a bit annoying as we like to stay in touch with the world, and no internet connection... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in April 2009 and were pleased with the accommodation. We were looking for a cheaper, no frills type option (self-catering) so we could actually afford to come to the Seychelles. Avoiding the higher price hotels proves to be difficult and this place jumped out at us on our online search for... More

We stayed in the guest house at L'Hirondelle in March 2009. The house was clean and well kept, although it could use some updating. We intended to self-cater here, but this did not work very well. There are few cooking supplies in the house and the availability of groceries is VERY LIMITED! The beach in front of the house (although... More

We stayed at L'Hirondelle for 3 nights. Emelia is a very nice host, very friendly and helpful. She'll arrange decent priced day trips, 95 euros for a full day trip to a variety of islands. The room itself was quite worn but fully functional. Alot of cracked tile and some mold on the bathroom ceiling. Lots of geckos running around... More
