To cut the long story short, I would go back anyday and anytime to this same hotel even if I was offered something more luxurious...the staff, the food especially the breakfast, the rooms are spacious, room service is amazing...well done to the management.

We had a great holiday here with our Familiy and we have appreciated the kindness of the people working here. The hotel is very quit, we enjoyed that and it is located closed to a beach, after a short walk of approx. 5 min. This is a great place to be. We had the Garden Villa downstairs. We liked it... More

We payed € 280 for a sea view room, for our surprise, when we arrived in the room was a tip of sea, pratically without view. I didn't believe. So we complained and they said that the rooms on upper area were full. We had to wait for 3 days to move to another room. In the reservation we had... More

We had the pool villa. Really good room and facility. Lovely part of the world, the location is ideal in terms of seclusion and the local beaches are unspoilt and some of best in Seychelles, a bit far from the town and ferries to other (better) islands though - the ferries run a sparse service so this is an issue...

Nice resort, family run. This is not a flash 5 star resort like the banyan Tree or Four Seasons but it's still a great place to stay for the money you spend. Nice setting near the beautiful Baiae Lazare beach, one of the nicest on Mahe. The pool and bar area is lovely and the restaurant serves good food. However... More

Bottom Line: The resort is beautiful to look at, but underneath the surface, the hills are frustrating, the service is terrible, the beach/other restaurants are far away, and if you have any trouble, the management - at the highest levels - will treat you like you are the problem. STAY AWAY! I have 15 reviews on TripAdvisor - all of... More
