“Perfect environment..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

A great place to spend time. Close to beach,bus stop,small village and nature!

Very spacious room, comfortable bed and good bathroom shower!

Buffet meals very good. We ate here five times(with one of these thrown in for free!)
Restaurant area, pleasant, but no atmosphere or attractive bar where you could sit
and sip a drink! Needs something to brighten this up and maybe a colourful poster
displaying what`s on offer.. Could have small snacks available at lunchtime too, although
never anyone around restaurant area during the day,This needs some thought,to offer drinks
around 12-2pm..

Overall a lovely holiday spent here, although I did get bitten after six days..and menacing bites too! Maybe it was because I stayed at garden level room 5!

Room Tip: Probably best if you request a room upstairs..because of the biters!

This is a lovely family-run hotel in Beau Vallon Bay - the staff are friendly and helpful, and you can walk straight onto the beach through the garden. The rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious (with lovely quiet air-con!), and we had a balcony looking out over the garden to the beach. The food is also great quality - I would recommend staying half board as dinner is excellent. There are several dive centres nearby, and lots of great dive sites in the area. I stayed here with my son in January 2013, just for a weekend (mostly we were based on Praslin, which is a lovely quiet island), and would definitely recommend the Augerine if you are staying on Mahe - it's very relaxed.

What a wonderful retreat on one of the most beautiful beaches on earth. It is a dream to step out of one's room, take a few steps through the garden and on to Beau Vallon Beach. The hotel has without a doubt the best position on the beach. This family run hotel is charming, relaxed and happy. The food served in a picturesque open setting is tasty and very good local creole food. It is fresh and it is tasty. The staff are friendly and helpful and you feel at home as part of the extended family. The hotel is clean, spacious and comfortable. We felt at home in a little corner of Paradise

The location of the Augerine is ideal, right on Anse Beau Vallon. This small inn is a no hassle location, where you are just steps away from the beach. Our room was clean and spacious with a balcony overlooking the sea. The "dining room" is open air. I suggest half board, as the food is tastier here and less than some of the neighborhood restaurants. we only stayed two nights, but I could have stayed here longer. For my next visit, I plan to just stay here! The bus stop is also very close, and it's also very easy to get to the trail head for a hike to Anse Majore, which is an outstanding hike, not to mention one of the most beautiful beaches on the Seychelles.

My wife and I stayed here at the end of October/beginning of November 2012 and were very impressed. This is a family-owned small hotel, not part of a chain or a luxurious boutique hotel, but the rooms are large, the bathrooms clean, and the service very friendly. It is right on the Beau Vallon beach, between two large resort hotels, neither of which looked as comfortable as the Augerine. We especially appreciated the daily breakfasts, which consisted of a variety of fresh tropical fruit, toast with butter and local jam, eggs, tea, and coffee. Consider staying for the dinner buffet, which starts at 8:00 and includes a variety of local Creole dishes like curries and broiled whole fish; we found the value of the these dinners to be very good, and the quality high. The hotel is a short walk from the town of Beau Vallon, where there are several small shops, an internet cafe, ATMs, and a take-away popular with the locals that serves very inexpensive lunches like pork stew over rice. You'll want a car for at least some of your stay, but considering booking it from the hotel only for the days you need it. On Wednesdays there is an evening market down the beach, with food stands and souvenir items for sale.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second or third floors have more privacy than those on the ground floor.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2011

Stayed one night, short notice booking. The family who own the property are laid back, friendly people, with humour and kindness.
The rooms are basic,not cheap, but right on the lovely beach, you can drag some sun beds down to the beach.
No hassles at all on the beach, no great restaurants in Beau Vallon. Many people book mid morning and eat at the guest house. Cooked me a lovely veggie lentil dish, but lettuce in salad unwashed.
Appear to have lots of repeat custom, I am not surprised, the two big hotels either side Berjaya and Coral Strand are awful, run down and old fashioned.

Room Tip: Most with sea and garden view
