We stayed at Aquario for 6 nights in december 2013. We had an apartment with 2 bedrooms, each with a bathroom, and a living-room with a separate kitchen part. The apartment was well equipped and charmingly furnished. It was cleaned every day and decorated with flowers. Breakfast is served in a cosy dining-room where one wall is natural stone. It... More

I stayed here for 5 nights on my honeymoon. It was a memorable stay. The owners are very friendly couple. Rooms are cleaned daily. Our bed used to be decorated daily throughout our stay. The breakfast is good. It has restaurant and grocery store near by. Anse Lobert beach is just a stone throw away. Beach towels are provided.

This B&B is great! Friendly multi-lingual Farida and Jose are serious about being good hosts. We arrived late at night (22:30) and Farida was there to meet us and show us where to park our car. She gave us two bottles of cold water and let us go to bed. The next morning, she gave us our orientation and collected... More

We (a couple) stayed in Acquario 11 days in July 13. It is the perfect place to stay. It is very close to Anse Volbert small village, with shops and restaurants, and an adequate location to visit Anse Lazio or to go to the Jetty to take the ferry to La Digue since it all is on the east coast...

It was our favorite location in this 3 Islands Vacation. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped including microwave, blender, toaster and any vessel that you need to cook your own dinner or lunch. However, the glasses are missing which would be useful in case you want to prepare an exotic fruits cocktail, but you... More

Fantastic apartments with good value for mobey and superb service. You jave a choice to eat in or out and whilst we cooked for ourselves in the day and ate out most nights, I would definitely recommend Faridas lobster. Amazing. When Farida learned that it was my girlfriends birthday, she arranged a wonderful cake and some bubbly to be served... More

Title says it all. There are plenty of good reasons why we return to Farida & Joseph. The warm welcome, the genuine, friendly Seychellois hospitality, the location, the rooms, the price, the food... this is the place to stay on Praslin!

We had a fantastic week here thanks to the hospitality of Farida and Jose and their wonderful accommodations. The rooms are spacious, clean, and their attention to detail is quite outstanding. And the best meals we had were there. If you go, try Jose's fabulous bbq'd red snapper. Enormous quantities and done to perfection. Less than 2 minutes walk to... More
