Very nice place, directly on the beach (Anse aux Courbes), nice terrace and view to the beach front. Point au Sel can be an ideal place for excursions on Mahe, relatively near to the airport and Victoria, close to Anse Royal, by car one can quickly reach all the points of interest. Self catering is absolutely no problem, 3 shops... More

Nicely located directly above a small strip of sandy beach, including the notorious coconut trees. Very quiet, small shops and restaurant nearby, even a local bakery. Self catering facilities are decent, so is the open plan living room. Bathroom might need an upgrade. The maid is not too thorough but nice enough, the guard is very friendly. Overall pleasant experience.

We liked this place and the view! Decent towels, bed and A/C. There's security at night to keep the locals honest and a safe in the room! Rooms are decent as is the bathroom. The bed faces the sea and that wonderful sunrise! It's quiet and we were able to check in early after arriving on a 7 am flight!... More

The room is cleaned daily (except sunday) and during the night there is a person in cherge of surveillance. The distance from... More

Stayed for our Honeymoon, a really good choice. It is not luxurious or 5* but rooms are very light and spacious. There is a large modern fridge/freezer, 2 electric hobs and a small oven. Good supply of utensils (maybe take a tin opener, ours wasn't very good) and a breakfast bar. In the bathroom there is a large sink, bidet... More
