We stayed in Aquario 1 bedroom apartment for 3 nights in October 2008. It was recently opened at that time. The owner, Farida, took great care of us and we had a lovely time. It is short stroll away from a lovely beach. Breakfast was nice and was served on our terrace. If you like walking you can walk to... More

We recently stayed at Aquario for 4 nights. It was a very nice stay...probably the best during our trip in Seychelles. Helen at the front desk and the owners are very kind and helpful. Breakfast was good...but probably the best value here is the dinner. There is always fresh grilled fish. The property is very closed to the beach. The... More

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...
