I stayed here for about six nights in June 2012, partially with my girlfriend and partially on my own. I must say that contrary to some of the negative reviews here I very much enjoyed it and would definitely go back. As stated in a number of other reviews, it is under new management and most of the negative reviews... More

Me and my husband stayed at Villa Flamboyant for 5 nights during our honeymoon to the Seychelles in September 2011 (former management). We paid a relatively low price for this accommodation (just 55 Euro per room including B&B). We rented a car so we had no problem whatsoever traveling all over the island. It is much more economical to rent... More

I have never seen a horrible place like this, wherever in the world. The "room" had dirty sheets, dirty towels, dirty curtains, dirty forniture and it was full, really full, of spiders and webs. The bathroom had not been cleaned before of our arrival, the WC had undoubtfully been used by someone else.... The narrow shower was broken, the sink... More

Rooms are nothing special, a bit run down. There were tropical ants in our bathroom. There's nothing outside villa, beach isn't good for swimming, if you'd like to eat out you should get a car or bus to get somewhere. So if you are looking for solitude and unpretentious concerning rooms this place will be ok. Though unpossibility to swim... More

This stay was not like our previous wonderful visits to Villa Flamboyant. Sadly we won't be returning unless there is significant quality maintenance and more attention to detail. Natalie is welcoming and knowledgeable about how to get around. The chef was also very friendly and hard working.
