This is a difficult place to rate as it has good and bad points. In making your decision, you really must question what you want from your holiday. If money is no object and total seclusion is what you want then this place is wonderful. Otherwise, I have to say, you will probably end up being disappointed. We arrived back... More

My wife and I have just had the good fortune to have spent ten days at the Cerf Island Resort and we found a tropical island paradise. The scenery, the sea, and the weather were all excellent, the accomodation was tremendous. The restaurant was to an excellent standard and food beautifully presented. The resort was kept immaculately clean and the... More

We stayed at Cerf Island for the second week of our honeymoon, following a perfect week in Mauritius. The resort is beautiful and secluded. I cannot fault the villas. They are very romantic, we loved the 4 poster and the huge 2 person bath, as well as the outdoor garden shower. The beach and pool are small but fine for... More

The villas are beautiful, well designed, private and romantic. If you hate bugs and creepy crawlies then I would not recommend this resort. My biggest critiscism of this so called luxuary resort is the hotel manager. He is arrogant, rude and hates British tourists. During our stay (honeymoon) we witnessed him bullying his staff, this is reflected in the poor... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel during July. Very secluded, very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The hotel is on an island which is about a 10 minute boat ride from the main island - a quick and easy ride. Hotel is absolutely recommendable. Friendly staff, luxurious setting, good food (no buffets!!). Enough options for out-of-resor excursions (do the... More

We cannot express fully how pleased we have been with our stay at Cerf Island. The helpfulness and friendliness of the entire staff have been such a delight. We must recommend the honeymoon package to all newlyweds – such a treat. We travelled very far to the Seychelles and are certain that we made the perfect choice for our holiday.

Returned late last night from a week long trip to Cerf Island. Oh my goodness - this truly is paradise on earth. We were greeted personally by the manager and his wife who could not have been more helpful and accomodating, they made us feel like personal houseguests. We were given a large tortoise suite which was enormous and had... More

We had high expectations of this resort - after all, it's the Seychelles, meant to be one of the places to see before you die. Disappointment ensued from the time we approached the Island via the speedboat. The beach was tiny and the view obscured by a huge rusty pontoon. One Pedallo between multiple guests, not enough sun loungers on... More

The Cerf Island Marine Park Resort is an absolutely beautiful resort and the scenery is just fantastic. It would have been really useful to have known in advance that the Seychelles mainly operate in foreign currency; most prices are listed in Euros. This wasn’t mentioned in our guidebook or by Trailfinders and we changed too much money into rupees which... More

This resort is a real gem. A short boat ride away from the marina on Mahe, Cerf Island resort is tucked away on a hillside. The villas that are almost in the canopies of the trees are secluded and designed to a very high standard. Being a small resort the service is very personal. If you cannot stay the night... More
