We traveled a family of 5, 2 adults 3 children on a 9 day family vacation. Arno the manager was kind enough to let us all stay in one room even though protocol says we would have needed to split up. That is the attitude of this hotel for good and for bad. Management is very laid back...Some work very... More

We spent almost a week here and really find this location very enjoyable! We loved the excursions organized by the hotel, which seemed better than the ones organized by the tour agencies in town! The boat shuttle service made it fairly convenient to go to town. The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. They helped us arrange a rental... More

The only great interest and value of this hotel is the fantastic snorkelling location : great lagoon, and nice beaches. The hotel infrastructures are old and definitely need renovation to satisfy the 3 stars. One example is the bathroom with a very tiny and small shower cabin, that my husband could not fit in... Services, Staff competences and kindness are... More

Beautiful location whte sands and palm trees. 2 Giant tortoise on site. Trekking in the forest that is teeming with gekkos . Rather quiet in the evening with occasional entertainment. Boat goes to the jetty on a regular basis. Dont be tempted to jump into a taxi on the jetty, They will charge SR250 for a trip that will cost... More

Your "own" beach? Emerald waters to snorkel? Lush garden? Calm? Not ready to pay the 5* service? Then this is your spot. Pick one of the villas on the seafront, take the ground floor that comes with a veranda if you like that. Boat shuttle is regular and takes 15 minutes. Beach is clean as all the rest. Room outfits...

It is the snorkeling that makes it worth to choose this Hotel . Snorkeling is worldclass. The naturralist biologist guide was good and a big pluss for this place. Breakfast and desserts are poor. Dinner is ok. Water and other drinks are very expensive ! The bed smelled.

We were in New Emerald Cove hotel. We came with the last boat from Mahe on Praslin at 16:25, which I think is bad connection beetwen islands so you need to have on mind your plane should be before that time or you will stay for one night on Mahe. When we came on Praslin there was a boat for... More

A holiday at New Emerald Cove can be whatever you want it to be - Total relaxation and decadence, or active and recreational. The hotel and its staff are excellent, the fact that it is only accessible by boat is a huge plus - you get a sense of total isolation and retreat, despite the fact that there is a... More

The reviews here are rather off-putting, and based on our experience now somewhat outdated. This hotel is not frequented by many English - we were the only ones there, being surrounded by French, Germans and Italians. That's not a problem because all the staff speak English, but for a more representative view of the hotel look at ratings on the... More
