We booked l'Archipel to celebrate our 25th anniversary and it was everything we had hoped for and more! By chance we found out later that my sister had spent her honeymoon years ago in the exact same hotel. We wanted a quiet location and our feet skimming the beach from our room, or nearly. The room was spacious, pretty, albeit... More

Nice big bungalows located at 20 min. walk from center. Delicious dinner and good service. Very frindly staff. The only drawback is the sandflies on this particular beach. If you are alergic to sandflies be careful !!! It can be a nightmare ! Nice swimming pool and good atmosphere.

We spent a New Year's week in the Executive Suite (around 150m2) with the marvelous beach view. We booked the room directly with the resort and were satisfied with all the responce/feedback stuff. We used some of their special offers for honeymooners so the side effect was very nice and romantic Candle Dinner on the house. We even did take... More

We stayed here over Christmas and from booking (which we did directly with the hotel), we were made to feel welcome - greeted by the manager with a cocktail by the small infinity pool while paperwork was completed. Our bungalow by the private beach was perfect - just steps away from the soft white sand. The room was tasteful with... More

You can see why the hotel rates itself 5*, stunningly beautiful location, very attractive buildings and pool area, set in delightful gardens. Our beachside bungalow was really nicely decorated, the bed spacious and comfortable and had a beautiful view. There was a separate toilet from the well appointed and large bathroom, with walk-in shower. Fixtures and fittings all looked brand... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The staff were friendly and attentive. the location is great, views across the bay from the veranda of our beachside villa made early morning tea and early evening drinks so much better. A minute stroll to the beach to relax, swim or snorkel made it a great location. If... More

Excellent senior honeymoon suite. Personal service. On the downside, you tend to stay put at the hotel, missing other places to see, to eat at, etc. 25 min walk to village and other restaurants, shops etc.

L'Archipel is situation on a beautiful quiet bay on Praslin island. The sea is crystal clear and the sand like fine sugar. The hotel is small and therefore it's quiet compared to other resorts. The upside is that the staff get to know you, and most are very friendly. Finding a bed by the beach is not hard, but you... More
