“What do you want in a hotel stay?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This hotel is NOT a 5-star resort that you will find in Bali or Phuket. This is a resort that will suit many people but not others. You need to ask yourself exactly what you want in a resort? This place has both positives and negatives.

POSITIVE
Location!! Excellent location on Beau Vallon Beach aka Sunset Beach - excellent swimming and snorkeling nearby.
Chalets / Deluxe rooms are excellent value for money - the little extra to upgrade is well worth it.
Good facilities for water sports - both free and paid for [motorised].
Great cocktails - reasonably priced by Seychelles standards.
Close to local shops / supermarkets / restaurants / bus stops / car rental.

NEGATIVES
Service - or lack thereof! Staff have a "couldn't care less" attitude - but be warned this is not only at the resort but ALL OVER the entire island. Hey, this is island paradise and everybody is laid back here! Do not expect ANYBODY to bend over backwards for you - it ain't gonna happen so get used to it.
Food is expensive - but that again is all over the island - not just at the hotel.

All in all a great place for the price. If you are not happy here then by all means go pay double or triple the price at the Kempinski or the Four Seasons, but I don't think you will have anything better than what you will get at Berjaya.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Chalet / Deluxe room - well worth the little extra.

Very much an older hotel (1974) yet had some charm and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was very disappointing and very pricey, would definitely recommend eating elsewhere, some of the menu is satisfactory but don't even bother with the pizza! Not that pizza is a seychelles dish but sometimes you just want a snack...........
I would return, the rooms are basic and clean, good air conditioning and with a good TV, all satisfactory and in reality one spends little time in the room. The Casino is small but fun.

Room Tip: Irrespective of type of holiday no room has a sea view. The bungalows have a garden view. Ask for ro...

If u are staying with young kids book a superior room otherwise you are lugging them up stairs as there is no elevator.
No night light in our room, nor side table, and TV turned of with the lights. Tiny bathroom. Prepare to wait for pool towels and the food which is not worth the price. Walk down the beach and there is Mahek, la plage, boathouse and a Pizzeria. None of the rooms have a sea view, and the restaurant is more like a food court. The gardens are lovely and the bungalows look nice, and best of all is the beach.

Every year in late September ,( this is the fourth time ,after reading recent reviews) we stayed in Berjaya .. Yes, the service was much better. We were glad to see Guest Relations manager Josiane Esparon who was extremely helpful and accommodating to all our needs. Thank you, Josiane! We came to this hotel as a home.
I will not write about the location and restaurants. I will say that the room service was quick and and quality. Had problems with the TV quickly corrected. Staf very friendly and welcoming.
The only wish - to make internet cheaper...

We stayed at Berjaya and we enjoyed the stay. We took only BB because we wanted to try a few restaurants around, The Pizza restaurant and the Chinese restaurant which belongs to the hotel are very good. The beach is very nice and the rooms are big and clean.

Average, affordable hotel. Check in and check out was great with no hassles. All hotel staff was always found to be very helpful and very friendly throughout our stay.
Premises neat, room dated with very small bathroom - but expected within this price range.
Pizza restaurant very good, food reasonably priced. Wine very expensive. Ate there twice, service always good. Good breakfast.
Well located with several restaurants close by - within walking distance. Great beach.
Stayed in an interleading room which is not great noise wise, as room next door had an alarm set for early each morning, and then seemingly snooooooozes forever before turning the alarm off.
Also renovations happening upstairs, with loud hammering noises until very very late each night except our last night. So the room was SUPER NOISY most of the time, which was very annoying and ruined an otherwise great trip to Seychelles.

Room Tip: Don't stay in a room right opposite the door leading to the stairway - very noisy.

The hotel is located near a calm bay with a coral reef. There are some shops nearby and a disco.
There is a large and entertaining playground for the children in the hotel as well as a place with large tortoises.
If you’re lucky, you’ll be staying in a bungalow, but most people stay in the main hotel building in balcony-less rooms.
The hotel offers trips to the nearby island and it seemed like a safer choice that buying them on the beach.
I enjoyed eating out at the market but my stomach is of steel :)
In general – an ok place.
