“Our stay at La Reserve Hotel from 23 to 27 October 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We are very satisfied with the room and the hotel itself, but above all the staff was very polite and helpful. We have never experienced such a service minded and polite staff on our previous vacations. We really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 105. It was perfect.

We had a fantastic 10 day stay the first two weeks in October at La Reserve & would highly recommend this hotel. We travelled with two boys aged 6 & 3 and the level of tolerance from the staff with them was unbelievable – and they even went out of their way to engage with the kids. The beach and protected bay was great fun and the snorkelling / kayaking from the hotel was amazing. The Superior room was of the highest quality with more than enough space for the four of us. The food at the hotel was also of high quality and the jetty restaurant provided a great backdrop for evening meals! The huge pool is very child friendly and we spent many happy hours relaxing there. All in all I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Praslin – lots of space for kids to run around, amazing staff offering the highest quality service & a setting to die for! We will hopefully be visiting here again in the future!

Room Tip: Superiour room 117 is the biggest and perfect for families with small kids. Rooms on the North Easte...

We stayed for a week in Okt. 2011. It was the greatest hotel, I have never experienced a more friendly staff ever. The food was great, but especially the breakfast was amazing!! Breakfast and dinner are served on the Jetty which is absolutely amazing! My husband went diving with the Whitetip Divers and he loved it. We would definetly recommend to stay in this hotel.

Nice personell and hotel.We will consider this hotel strongly on our next trip to Seychelles. Anything but crowded!. The kids had the pool almost for themselves. Big pool area with 1 meters depth, nice babypool. Very clean.
No mosquitonet for ekstra bed! We brought our own.
Ok small beach by the hotel. Some fish when snorkeling, especially around the pier. Coral reef almost totally gone because of global heating. Ok dinner but better on the fantastic beach 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Easy to get around. Top service!

Room Tip: Family rooms are bigger but room 107-110 are better value beach front

We went to Seychelles after our safari in Tanzania. We just wanted to relax and enjoy a few days reflecting back on the safaris. The resort grounds, accommodation and dining area were exceptionally well maintained. A half hour hike into the hills provided spectacular views of the resort. What really exciting are the 400+ pound turtles enjoying their slumber.

Room Tip: Beach front

Thank you for sharing your experience with us and fellow travelers. Hopefully we will see you again soon on our little paradise island in the Sun. We have some great news about our Tortoises, they have 5 new babies!! At present they are being taken care of in a separate area until they are big enough to not get squished by their 400 pound mamas and papas.

The hotel has been extensively refurbished since the tsunami and the rooms are now very spacious and fitted to a high standard. Ours had a fantastic view directly overlooking the small bay. Most guests were couples and although the ever smiling entertainment manager did his best to liven up the evenings, this is a place for romance and relaxation. Staff were excellent and the food was high standard and varied.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms, but some are right on the waterfront, while others are set back and overlook...

We stayed here in Aug 2012 for 5 nights. What a brilliant start to our honeymoon! Staff were very helpful on arrival and extremely friendly. We had a deluxe sea front room and it was amazing. You couldn't find a better view from our room anywhere in the world I'm sure! Large open plan room, huge bed, sunken bath and enormous shower. Lovely jetty restaurant with great food. Changed between buffet and set menu which was nice. The staff were very polite and helpful, can't fault the hotel at all. Hotel was very quiet during the day as there is lots to do on the island. We spent some days at the hotel pool, but visiting vallee de mai is a must!! We hired a car to visit there and also spent some time at anse lazio beach which is beautiful! Another must. Got to see most of the island in the car, so we rally enjoyed that and it was only 50 euros for the whole day. Would recommend this hotel and island without hesitation

Room Tip: Deluxe sea front room is amazing!!
