The guesthouse is divided into two buildings, an older one back in the garden and a new one facing the sea. This review refers only to the old rooms, I never saw the new rooms inside Rooms are big, with no air conditioning but a ceiling fan and the bathroom is spacious. The cleaning is very shallow but ok.

Overall, this is one of the best located guesthouses that we saw in the Seychelles. You can literally walk onto the beach from outside the breakfast block. 4-5 good restaurants are within a 10minute walk and there are several small shops right along the road outside, so very convenient. We had the room on the top of the new block... More

The guesthouse is fine and the rooms spacious and clean. The breakfast was adequate and the position by the beach great. However we were conned out of money for an island trip that did not materialise. We went to the police who did very little. The most annoying aspect was that the guesthouse owners knew the guy and what he... More

Rosemary Guesthouse is located directly on the Cote d’Or beach in Praslin. Because of the water-shortage on Praslin there was no water in some rooms. Therefore we were offered a seafront room with a discount. Those rooms are much prettier and really have a nice view, so it was worth the extra money. Breakfast is a bit minimal: a small... More

What a fantastic place this was! This is a small-scale guesthouse with a newly built part just 10 seconds off the beautiful Cote d'Or beach on Praslin. We were in a seaview room, light and spacious with a balcony, everything was very new. The view is to die for, it's so gorgeous! Herbert is very accomodating and friendly and always... More

From the moment he offered us a beer at the gate (which he had to purchase across the road at the fantastic little corner store) Hubert did everything he could to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Even before that - he responded quickly to emails, answering questions about transportation and local knowledge issues. Breakfast was lovely, with fresh fruit... More

If you are not a "resort person" this accomodation is for you! The guesthouse is right on one of the most beautiful beaches of Praslin, on Cote d'Or. You just walk out from your room, take a few steps in the sand and get to the white sandy beach with a picturesque view to the nearby small islets. You can... More

We arrived in Rosemary Guesthouse after 1 day on the other side of the island (avoid it! Cote d'Or is definetely the best side in Praslin, both for the beach and the restaurants). Rosemary Guesthouse has nice rooms (we stayed at the first floor, front sea: if this room is available i suggest to choice it, it's the best in... More

We escaped Villa Flamboyant on the other side of the island after only 2 nights as we couldn't take it there. Found this place randomly while trying to find somewhere to stay, turned out to be great. Hébert, Rosemary's son, was pleased to take us in for 70 E per night (B&B, low season). He was very ready to help... More
