The staff is friendly and accommodating. We arrived early and they moved us in before the official check-in time. The room is very nice and clean, with great views of the ocean. Having said that, I can also see the point of other reviewers who complained - the place could be maintained a little better. For example a shower head... More

Stayed for a couple days, Very friendly, food quite good. Pool needs painting all sun loungers falling apart. Bar area is very pleasant, but if you look underneath its all cracking and being held up by scaffolding a little worrying. As this area goes over the sea on a platform. Also be prepared to pay for expensive wine, as they... More

Stayed here over the Christmas holiday, needless to say was NOT at all impressed! When we got to the first room there was a pond under the air -conditioner from a leak. We got into the next room and there was an ant infestation... My wife inquired as to where she could place the luggage, the answer: on the floor.... More

Stayed at this hotel as it was rated #4 on this site. Not sure how it got this rating but apparently, it should be downgraded. We stayed here for Christmas and were severely disappointed with the food, customer service and room. I have never stayed in a place where we could not have alternative food selections when we asked and... More

Terrible service! We went last year in December and had exactly the same terrible experience. They are not friendly at all. The food you order is not available. The best thing is the beach, but bring along your own food and drink and do not waste your time dining there.

Enjoyed a choice anniversary trip here! Very helpful staff, neat environment. The location just by the beach is very enjoyable. The price makes sense for this kind of facility . Can choose it again for future trips to Mahe

We stayed at this hotel for a total of 3 nights, at either end of our side trip to Praslin and La Digue. The first 2 nights we stayed in room 2 (ocean view room) which was much bigger than I expected for a 3-star hotel and the view was great. The beach at the hotel (which is actually open... More

It is very difficult to give this hotel a review: 1. Location + setting - Excellent 2. Rooms - very good except that we had endless problems with the key system - sometimes it worked and sometimes we where locked out and nobody could fix the problem 3. Cleanliness - place for improvement. Placements could be washed occasionally. Our floor... More

We booked in for 2 nights at last minute, having stayed in a friend's villa for the first few days of our holiday. Our room (no. 22) was gorgeous - not sure what a previous reviewer was going on about regarding tired fixtures. Ours looked like it had just been done. Our room was right on the edge of the... More
