We stay here as the first stop of our honeymoon. The service was great and we were welcomed with nonalcoholic cocktail after a long day of travel. The atmosphere at this hotel is very intimate and you get to know the personel quite quickly. We had halfboard and the dinner changing between a fixed 3-course menu of the day with... More

We were in Curieuse room as we requested to have a private room for our honeymoon far from any crowds and with a nice view. The stairs are tiring if someone old is to consider booking the room, otherwise its ok. The view was really nice. The hotel is not value for money at all but I think everywhere in... More

Thank you for this review. I am forever intrigued how different reviews can be from clients staying at our hotel at the very same time. As you were booked on B&B basis you did not benefit from the candlelight dinner. If you had booked Half Board the seafood candlelight dinner setting would have been arranged. Equally if you had booked... More

The location and views from this hotel are superb, it really is situated in a great spot. The accommodation nestled into the hillside provides a nice distance between rooms and looks beautiful lit up at night. Downside - we found the food a bit hit and miss, our first night buffet was shockingly bad, but after that it did improve... More

Thank you for this constructive review. I apologise if we did not meet your expectations re our buffet evening menu/selection. I trust our table d'hote and a la carte options met with your approval. All our public areas will be renovated in 2016 with new colour scheme, fittings and fixtures. We are equally looking at our entry level Superior rooms. More

Stayed at L'Archipel for 2 nights. Friendly staff, made us feel right at home. Also helped us with a car rental to go around Praslin and also helped with a one day boat excursion - both went smoothly without a hitch. Also had a wonderful dinner as part of their honeymoon package

First stop on our two centre trip. Perfect for us as we did not want big resort hotel. Beach is not the best to be honest but don't let that put you off. A short walk takes you to a very long stretch of beach which became my favourite. Amazing sea. Well worth hiring a car and driving round the... More

We returned to the Seychelles and wanted to stay on Praslin. The L'Archipel came highly recommended as a luxury hotel and lived up to every expectation.

Once we arrived here we really felt our honeymoon had started; wonderful room (Mirabelle) right down near the beach, huge room with big bed, double shower, all beautiful, and then a wonderful private beach which as its located at the far end of the bay is very private without anyone trying to walk through.
