Good Hotel located on the north of the Praslin Island so could avoid the south eastern monsoon at this time of the year. However, the beach in front of the Hotel are all submerged under water leaving only a very small patch on the far side. I was told it was due to global warming that sea level has risen and has an significant effect on this small island country. If you are looking for big beches right in front of the hotel, certainly this is not your choice. Food is average quality only. Room is average also but the restaurant was very nicely located over the water, so dinning there is a very good experience no matter in the morning or at night. There is an area that kept several giant tortoise so you can see them without the hassle to travel a long way to the Curieuse Island. Bus stop is right in front of the hotel giving you convenience to travel by bus to go to other places on the island like the Vallee De Mai but the bus was not so ontime especially on Sunday. Swimming pool is big and very nice. However, it is far from the airstripe and take half an hour to reach here from the airstripe.
