We stayed here for our honeymoon for 6 nights and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying on Praslin. We were welcomed with a lovely cocktail as we sat outside by the pool going through check-in (which was nice and quick). Our room was ready for when we arrived and we had an upgrade for our Honeymoon, lovely villa... More

We have spent our first part of our honeymoon at this hotel back in end Oct 2013. The pros are: Our room was located by the see (suite) and was just greatly furnished. The food was 'gourmet' level with three courses meals with two choices. The hotel is quiet and the staff very friendly. A special thanks to Achille, the... More

Hotel L'Achipel hotel and location was great, right on the beach away from the main village on Anse Volbert. It was too far to walk anywhere, so we hired a car for a couple of days - much cheaper than taxis. There are hotels which will do a pick up and delivery service, but the food at LAchipel was great...

We had a great honeymoon at this hotel! It is located at the end of a long strip of beach (Cote d'Or), which means that there are not a lot of people walking by, making it a very secluded spot. All of the people that stayed at the hotel were very quiet and kept to themselves, which added to the... More

We enjoyed staying on various islands in the Seychelles, including a 5-day break on the lovely island of Praslin. The hotel L’Archipel was a distance from the road, the welcoming reception area and friendly staff set the scene for a very enjoyable holiday,including excellent food and service. Well appointed chalets bordering the beautiful private beach with palm trees and water... More

My wife and I have returned recently from a fabulous holiday in the Seychelles, seven days of which were spent at the lovely Hotel L’Archipel on Praslin Island.

We spent 7 days at L'Archipel, wondering how some people could write such bad reviews of this hotel - do not let them influence away from here! Ok, the hotel is at the end of the beach, but the walk along the beach to the village has to be one of the most romantic in the world. The staff were... More

Stayed 30 April to 5 May 2014 An excellent stay in a,boutique hotel with competent, friendly staff. Set in an isolated location with its own lovely private beach, the 'chalets' dotted round a very attractive garden area.

We stayed for 6 nights on our honeymoon. The location is first class, in its own cove with the most amazing beach. It's not too big which meant it never felt busy and so was very relaxing. It is a 20minute walk from the "town", but we came to get away from it all so that was great. However it... More

This is the first time TripAdvisor actually mislead me. Based on the reviews, I had some very decent expectations. They were not only not met, but this property has failed on all possible levels. - It is extremely overpriced. Just my wifi set me back 100 eur for 7 days and this is not for unlimited usage.
