My wife and I had to endure two weeks staying at the Coco d’ or as we had been booked into there by the company I was working for.
The guy on reception was aloof and quite off hand with us and not interested in what we had to say. The staff in general are not interested in the guests, in fact it appears they would rather there weren’t any guests so they wouldn’t have to do anything. The first three days we had to endure constant drilling and banging, it was like a building site around us. We had 4 TV channels and most of the time only one was English. At one point we were the only paying guest there and we were informed that as this was the case we would get a very basic breakfast as it was too much trouble for them to cater for just us two. On most mornings the staff helped themselves to breakfast and then consider serving guest when they were ready. This place is the Seychelles version of Faulty Towers but it’s no joke being there when the joke is on you. I have added pictures of:- the filthy empty Jacuzzi, Exposed electricity junction box, Doors and panelling dumped on the balcony, Stagnant water a breeding ground for mosquitoes, I got bit most nights and a missing door handle that would cut like a razor.
There are private houses either side which both have dogs, these dogs when they are in the mood constantly bark at each other for hours on end. In the two weeks we stayed there we hardly saw any other guests as the place was almost empty most of the time. I think it relies on poor unsuspecting passing customers who buy pizza or pop in for a meal. I saw from my balcony on a number of occasions people returning the food they had been served. On most nights I observed the security guard settling into one of his favourite chairs for his night time sleep clearly in front of any other staff who happened to be around. This place is overpriced and a total joke, The Coral Strand is just down the road I have stayed there on other business trips. It is cheaper and run more like a hotel but be prepared for the same staff attitude.
