Definitely overpriced, badly run hotel. No hot water, or -if any- just a few drops. The smell of humidity was unbearable. Part of the hotel doesn't get the Wi-Fi signal. Some rooms don't have windows, just doors (which you cannot leave opern because of the mosquitoes) Some staff at the reception are very rude and unwilling to solve even easy... More

We stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon in the Seychelles. My husband and I were made very welcome and offered a refreshing juice drink upon arrival. We were earlier than anticipated and the hotel kindly offered us to join breakfast too. We didn't have to wait long before we were shown the honeymoon suite, which was beyond... More

Oh my! How lucky were we to stay here! The place, the staff, the food, the location and even the entertainment were brilliant. We stayed here for eight nights and we had a fantastic time. We drank and ate when we wanted and it was a great experience. We relaxed at the poolside our entire stay and we were uninterrupted... More

We stayed in a superior room for seven nights in July 2014. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The toilet, however, was not clean enough, and we did not like the fact that there was no door between the bathroom area and the room itself. The balcony is unfortunately only semi-private, meaning not completely separated from the neighbour’s balcony... More

My family and I spent 14 days in the Seychelles in January 2014. We booked two double rooms at Le Duc on Praslin for the main part of our trip. This decision turned out to be the best of our trip to the Seychelles. As you can tell from other reviews and pictures, the Le Duc is a stunning, unique... More

Excellent hotel located directly at one of the most wonderful beaches of all Seychelles islands. GREAT: Very friendly staff, spacious rooms, excellent and large bathroom, clean, close to the beach, food was very good, very good à-la-carte restaurant, nicely integrated into the landscape, it's also very nice that the management employs only Seychelles inhabitants as their staff.

We stayed here from May 2nd to 9th which covered my 50th and our wedding anniversary. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and a surprise birthday cake was on our table to greet us at breakfast on the day, we had not made a point of highlighting the date. The coffee was good as was the breakfast selection, my... More

We stayed 10 days in this hotel. We felt like home. Leisure and fun in one. Spacious room with a huge and exellent bathroom - amazing :-) Great service and very good wine. Wonderful rock formation nearby. The best swimming pool in my life due to the quality of water.

We spent our first three nights of our honeymoon at this hotel in Praslin, and have to say the service, room and facilities were all just perfect. We were welcomed with a very nice fruity cocktail and shortly after were taken to our fabulous room which was beyond our expectations. Everything was perfectly clean, decorated with flowers...first impressions are always... More

Compared to some hotels this one appears less flash but the room was lovely. The other facilities were more limited and perhaps in need of fresh decor but that was from being spoilt elsewhere. It is not situated in a big resort like other hotels but is very close to a beach. Can't comment on the cost as I didn't... More
