“Nice resort for good price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We stayed for six nights in a standart room. The room is very nicely appointed and tastefully furnished.
It features IP TV, IP phone, wardrobe, tea/coffee facilities, mini fridge, shower, WC, A/C, electronic personal safe and hair dryer. The room was spotless, cleaned every day.
The resort located on Beau Vallon Beach which is amazing. We enjoed beautifull the sunset and great seawater every day.
Also the meal in the hotel is great. I can recommend Mahek Restaurant. It was excellent!

The service is corresponded to price. I think after the construction it is a little bit higher level.

The location of the Hotel is perfect. it is direct located on one of the most famous beaches in Mahe Seychelles. A lot of activities happening around this area.
Unfortunately the service of the hotel is very poor , so that I checked out after the first night. The check-in at the Hotel took me more than two hours, while the lady at reception keeps telling me 10 minutes more to wait. The room is newly renovated and clean, but the TV does, no Safe to deposit valuables, no coffee maker and the AC is more a kind of lottery.
Additionally the Hotel is currently under construction and therefore a bit noisy.

Service is impeccable. The staff make your stay as comfortable as imaginable. Waiters, chefs and service at the reception, they are for you all the time.

Rooms are after the reconstruction and they´re really modern, clean and nice.
Facilities are impeccable. The swimingpool is clean and nice, the bar is well served and stocked. The restaurant and buffet are elegant and very comfortable. Food is amazing .. you have plenty to choose from! The Indian restaurant Mahek brings real great gastronomic experience. Although the hotel seemed packed, we never got the impression of being crowded. Beach is the best I've seen so far.
The sand is fine, the water was crystal clear for most of the time. And the sunset was an unforgettable experience!
This great hotel I can recommend!!!

I have just returned from a wonderful holiday to Seychelles, during which I stayed also in the Coral Strand hotel. The hotel was lovely - spectacular views, perfekt location, a good swimming pool and a beautiful long beach next to the hotel. Of course the hotel can´t be compared with those of e.g. 5 stars, but if you're looking not to spend all your money on accomodation, this is place for you. It was better than I had expected.

Our room was in the middle building of the hotel, on the 2rd floor. The room was an good size with balcony and well furnished, comfortable bed and the bathroom was nice looking - both were clean and well managed. The food was a buffet style with a lot of choices. Special place is Mahek Indian restaurant, there was awesome food - highly recommanded!! The staff was helpful and in a contrast to other destinations everyone speaks English. The beach is great: clear water, not too much people, really beautiful sunset. The hotel offers the use of its towels and sun loungers at the beach - and there were always plenty of both.

If you want to stay in Beau Vallon, I can highly recommend the Coral Strand hotel. I would stay here again on my next vacation to Seychelles.

Room Tip: Hotel is renovated and all the rooms are really nice. Deluxe rooms seems large, good for family hol...

The hotel is situated on the beautiful beach of Beau Vallon - a few miles from the capital of the Seychelles. To Victoria can be reached by local bus. Hotel has a nice beach with a pool and a bar, where late-night music is played live. In the area there are several restaurants and shops with cheap food on the grill. The hotel breakfast is good and the selection is large. While dinner is a misunderstanding. Meals in the menus are limited to five items and the food is tasteless. The hotel is slow and customers lying and corrupt air conditioning in the room did not fix the end of your stay. Rooms are spacious, nicely decorated. While a TV, but there are no programs available. The entire hotel last renovation which hampers resting on the beach and in the pool. The bathroom is large and clean and towels changed daily service. Internet is available throughout the hotel and is free of charge, but sometimes it breaks down.

zero star not recommended at all.the hotel smell very bad, pool under construction, room smell very bad, food at brreakfast was very poor, rotten vegetable on the display which will attract flies and insect the service is too slow and staff to be better trained.
What a shame for the owner who have a such excellent location but no service no ambiance no charm no security, anybody can just enter the hotel, you regular see rasta comes to the hotel, and will try to sell marijuana with the hotel guest.

Was in Seychelles recently and spent a few nights at Coral Strand. Although there was construction at the hotel the staff were friendly and helpful and the food was amazing! Try the Indian restaurant Mahek !!!!! The hotel pool was not available during my stay but nonetheless the hotel is perfectly located next to breathtaking Beau Vallon Beach so we still got to tan and swim!
