“We loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

Very good place to stay: beach and restaurants are near the guesthouse, comfortable and spacious rooms with small kitchen and terrace, friendly stuff, own cars for rental.
The only disadvantage is that breakfast is always the same - one egg, toasts, jam and some fruits.

Room Tip: Spacious rooms

Good location, only few minutes to beach. I could hear the waves to my room. I had nice clean room with sea view. It was relaxing to eat breakfast in own veranda. Room was cleaned every day. I arrived in early morning cause of changed flight times and they charged only 5 nights tough I checked in at 7am. Service in reception was very friendly and helpful! Simone let me use her mobile to inform home that I am fine. My own mobile didnt work in Seychelles. So thank you Simone and other girls! It was pleasure to stay in Romance Bungalows!

I stayed at the Romance Bungalows and it was comfortable, clean and very good value in a destination that is renowned for being quite expensive. Really well located right on the beach, and close to restaurants, shops and the bus stop to get to Victoria. The staff were really warm, helpful and welcoming - I wish I could have stayed longer.

Basic rooms, good location right next to the wonderful Beau Vallon beach, breakfast just OK. Not the most helpful staff and quite expensive for what it is offering.
Stay elsewhere.....

perfect location. Comfortable accomodation at a good price. Staff were really lovely and so attentive and friendly. Great to have breakfast served between 7.30-10.30 and a great start to the day. Breakfast on your veranda with gorgeous views. We travelled with 2 small children (aged 1 and 5) and although Seychelles isn't a typical family destination staff went out of their way to make us all feel so welcome. We are hoping to return to Seychelles next year and this would be our first choice of places to stay. We have previously stayed at Pti Pyot but the location of Romance makes this our number one choice.

We stayed 2 nights at romance bungalows and were very happy about it.

The bungalow was large, clean, with fresh flowers and lovely furniture. The staff members were very attentive.

I would recommend RB for your first 2-3 nights in Mahé, especially if you flew a long haul flight and need to rest while being right next to the Beau Vallon beach and social life.

Our 6 day stay in Seychelles started badly as our original accomodation (Le Pti Payot) didn't have water in their chalet and so had to change accomodation quickly. Romance Bungalows accepted us immediately even though at short notice. Reception person was very friendly and escorted us to our apartment. He also gave us advise on locations to exchange money, phonebooths and locations for internet facilities. The apartment had a kitchenette, cutlery, sofa, TV, bedroom, wardrobe, ensuite shower room, A/C. Although it was self-catering, housekeeping was still done daily. Beau Vallon beach is just across the street and these bungalows are right next to car hire, dive centres, game fishing shops, pizzerias and restaurants. Lastly, he also allowed us to check out late (at 6pm) without charging us extra. I recommend Romance Bungalows to everyone seeking a good holiday in Seychelles without spending too much on expensive hotels.
