We visited Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, and Cerf. For sheer beauty I think La Digue is hard to beat. However if atmosphere and beauty is important to you, Cerf wins by a long way. If I had to have my honeymoon again this is where I would spend it. Once you have made the short trip by a covered hotel... More

My family and i have stayed at this wonderful family owned hotel several times now and i have yet to be disappointed. The rooms are clean and spacious, with an amazing balcony view overlooking the ocean. The staff were warm and welcoming and the owners are nice, friendly people, often interacting with the guests. Breakfast is excellent, offering plenty of... More

To get away from Europe's winter weather I booked a short notice two weeks stay at L'habitation. The family run place is a tropical paradise with all that you can expect. If you desire a sterile hotel bunker and don't want to see any living creature, then you better stay away! But if you love nature at close range (and... More

We booked at short notice to return to L'Habitation for the 5th time and, again, weren't disappointed. We return because of the peace and quiet and the warm service. If a quiet pool and an empty 5* beach are the things you are looking for, along with the ability of the chef to produce fantastic creole curries or whatever was... More

My partner and I stayed at this cosy,family run hotel. Not only was we welcomed by friendly staff but the views were simply amazing. The rooms were very clean an spacious. The breakfast and food was of a high quality. Overall thoroughly enjoyed my stay at L'habitation and will definitely be visiting again in the future.

We were warned about the rowdy skipper, and the receptionist! We were destined to cerf islands for a get away weekend ("honeymoon"). Note that we are locals (seychellois citizens). The skipper politely greeted us at the Eden jetty on Mahe. Our impression was "it's not as bad as what the others say". After a 10 mins ride to Cerf Islands,... More

Thank you for your review which we believe was very vindictive on your part Clients Aladeans did not do their reservation through the proper channel of the hotel but through an employee associated with the hotel and paid a minimum sum which was not sufficient for a junior suite So in the first pace NO 'junior suite' was booked for...

We spent 6 nights here and although the resort was attractive to look at we were disappointed with many aspects of the resort. Our accommodation was a garden chalet which was well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom was another story; the shower was so small it was impossible to actually bend down in it so foot and leg washing was... More

I stayed a couple of night on Cerf Island to attend the marriage of two of my best friends. Therefore the resort had a completely different atmosphere for the weekend than usual. About the only thing that let it down was the weather - it was an overcast and a very windy day in August - but that isn't L'Habitation's... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. It's a lovely little resort, nice big clean rooms with balconies. The pool is nice, and there are plenty of sun chairs on the property so you don't need to get up early to get one. The food was good, but we felt it was pricey for what it was. We... More

Small greatly run family establishment , with beautiful rooms with sea view of mahe island . the food was excellent with a mixed cuisine of creole and international dishes . They also have buffets on selective days which always have excellent choices. Me and my husband will defiantly be returning vacation time permitting. Also a special thank you to the... More
