We stayed for 10 nights in this hotel. The staff were amazing with only one exception, a surly bad tempered barman who really should not be working with the public, luckily he wasn't there all the time, the other barman, Shiva was amazing. All the other hotel staff made up for it though, they were friendly and helpful and always... More

Dear Hayley, We thank you for taking time to send us a review.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, with absolutely spacious and well-designed rooms. The half board option is also essential, food provided here is up to standard. Once you enter the room, the first impression is "Wow! That's spacious!" But then you will find a bottle of pesticides on the desk. Later, you will find ants on your bed because of the... More

Dear Laurence, We thank you for your comments and the little dose of sarcasm.

We have been to the Seychelles in May 2014 and decided to stay in the so-called Hillside Maison of the Duc de Praslin. The maison is a nice villa with 3 bedrooms located 2-3min by car from the main hotel. It is on top of the hill, so you can enjoy a beautiful view on the ocean, the rainforest below... More

Le Duc was a great place to begin our holidays in the Seychelles. The staff were very friendly and tried to accommodate all of our needs. The rooms were clean with very luxurious bathrooms.

We recently spent 5 nights at Le Duc. What struck us immediately about the hotel was the tranquil garden setting which helped us to completely chill very quickly.
