“A good meduim class hotel in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

This is an good value medium class hotel set in extensive tropical gardens on one of the best beaches on Mahe. We stayed 12 nights half board in a recently refurbished standard room. Standard rooms have no beach view or balcony, but as we were so close to the beach it didn't really matter. The room was well equipped with a huge bed, safe, TV, fridge, table and chairs, large wadrobes and fridge. The shower room was small but perfectly adequate. Rooms were kept clean and most days hibiscus flowers were left as decoration by the maids on the bed, which was a nice touch.

Staff were friendly and helpful. When we foolishly locked ourselves out someone came with a spare key in 10 minutes and when the lights went out in our room they were fixed very quickly.

Food was good with plenty of choice from the 3 restaurants.

Car hire is also very easy to organise from the hotel - we give our details before breakfast and the car was ready when we came out.

There is a free bus service layed on by the hotel twice daily to Victoria, but if you miss it, local buses stop just outside the hotel every half an hour.

There is live entertainment most nights, mostly music from the 70s and 80s which we liked, but not to everyones taste!

One downside - if you are arriving on an early flight (before 10 a.m.) there is about an hour wait for you room to be made ready, so make sure you have some beach gear in the surface layer of your suitcases, so you can change and at least enjoy the beach/pool while you are waiting.

All in all, a lovely hotel in a great location and one we hope to return to.

Room Tip: Most rooms have been refurbished but probably still worth asking for one.

Dear DingboS, the management and staff of the hotel thank you for your feedback. Berjaya Beau Vallon Resort is situated well in the heart of the Beau Vallon area with the whole stretch of beach just in front of the Resort. We have recently improved our gym facilities with several new LifeFitness cardio equipments and a multi station. We also maintained a beautiful children's playground within a tropical garden surrounding.

It didn't start well, taxi driver had a crash outside the gates so I had to carry my own bags down the drive - nobody at the front gate willing to help. Reception staff ignored me for 5 minutes then ask for deposit for room. I get to the room and there is dead skin and hair everywhere and dust so thick it cannot have been cleaned for years.

The aircon made me feel sick, it leaked and turn it off and you bake. My view was of a roof with a pipe billowing out smoke.

The food was worst than bad, what should have been hot was usually just warm and what should have been cold was warmer. I will normally eat anything but took to eating at the chinese restaurant next door the food was so bad, would put a russian gulag to shame.

Staff often rude and unfriendly.

The beach was nice but go elsewhere and visit it.

Room Tip: Find another hotel.

Stayed for 3 nights in March 2012 in superior room. The room was rather small, though clean enough. Comfortable bed, in-room safe, cattle. Had a small issue with aircon, which has been fixed quite promptly. Quite large bathroom. Nasty surprise - standard and superior rooms are on the side of the hotel facing its parking and not the sea. Strange idea to say at least. Staff at reception is not nice, though do their job.

I liked Beau Vallon beach though many people claim it to be not enough authentic. True, it looks rather a very good Thai beach than Seychelles one like Grand Anse on La Digue or Anse Lazio on Praslin. However, it is big enough, not that crowded, and what is most important - unlike many other beaches it is swimable with just small waves, so it works for kids as well. There is also a nice pool. Hotel has few restaurants. Breakfast was good, buffet dinner quite ok as well though pricy. We liked pizzeria with pretty good selection of well-cooked dishes.

Overall we liked our stay. Of course, its hugely overpriced, but it is very common for Seychelles. While some people here claim that there are "much better options on Beau Vallon for a just a bit more" - I really doubt that. It is also much better compared to its sister hotel on Praslin.

Clean hotel but a bit dated. Room was spacious and comfortable but also a bit dated. Good TV channels, great beach, good pool, amazing location, good breakfast buffet, and friendly staff. For the price (Seychelles is very expensive), truly can't go wrong with this place.

Nice hotel on a beautiful beach. It is a medium class hotel and definitely not a high class hotel. We stayed in challets, I do not know how the rooms in the main building look like. Deluxe rooms in chalets are specious as well as the bathroom; each has a nice terrace. I missed some wardrobe, especially some drawers or shelves where we could store t-shirts or shorts; there are only hangers available so we had to keep all our cloths in the suitcase for the whole period we stayed there. It seems that management is trying very hard to satisfy the guests and most of the staff are friendly. The surrounding is not very nice, but you can find some shops nearby to buy water. There are also few local restaurants minutes away. We ate in the hotel, prices are reasonable. You can buy pizza or a sandwich with chips for 125 rupees, what is around 7 €, a plate of chips for kids is 3 € . The only hotel nearby is Meridian Fisherman’s Cove, Coral Strand was closed for renovation and nearby a new hotel is being built. It seems that the best times for Beau Vallon bay and this hotel have already passed. But a lot of renovation work has been in progress during our stay so maybe in the future we may expect some improvements.

Room Tip: I recommend delux rooms which are in calletes. I advise only against rooms in the first challet, clo...

This is a great hotel. Some of the reviews had us sceptical before we booked. Food in hotel is of a good standard. The large dining area is LARGE and could do with some sort of partitioning up for gegraphical areas. Diving is good with a very good dive team including the new recruits who were finishing their divemaster when I was there.
Staff generaly good & friendly, reception staff could do with some customer centric training.
