Brilliant overall experience. Beautiful location with sea views and a couple of meters walk through lush lawns onto the white powder beach sand with gentle warm waves. Great variety of food with different dinner themes every night and live bands every second night. Friendly and helpful service. Drinks can be expensive.

The guy at the reception had a shirt on that should have been thrown out a year ago. When we arrived in our room, the hand basin plug was not working, the bathroom was smelly - they say it was recently painted - the Doom poison on the shelve and by the drain in the bathroom and behind the toilet...

This hotel and our room could not have been located in a more idyllic spot. The snorkeling options are great and you are very close to some shops to get a feel of the local lifestyle. If you prefer the island atmosphere and a slightly more rustic feel, you will like the rooms. Take into account though that the family... More

They greet you at the Paradise Sun with a very bold, 'welcome to Paradise' upon arrival. Fortunately, every aspect of the stay lives up to these words at this incredible hotel. The food, the accomodation, the willingness of the staff and the proximity to beaches, OH THE BEACHES, is simply out of the top drawer. Strongly recommended.

Praslin Island is up there with the best island holidays (Thailand, Phi Phi, Maldives, Mauritius, Zanzibar we have also been to). The beaches are magnificent, sea water very warm and the snorkelling in some places great. Paradise Sun is a lovely hotel, very friendly staff, nice rooms and the location is brilliant. We have been very surprised however about how... More

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying at Paradise Sun THREE times over the past few years. We still have many fond memories of our vacations here.
