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. The holiday was to celebrate a special birthday and was made so much more special by the attention and service we received from the moment we arrived. The hotel itself is located... More

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. Some chalets are on the hillside with good sea views, others are more at sea level, with views of the sea slightly obscured... More

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. The signal was... More

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
