“Dream place for a romantic get away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Great hotel in a paradise island. Located on the seafront, with a cute little beach, perfect spot to snorkel, and to do a bit of kayak. The swimming pool is huge! . The staff was super friendly and always smiling.
The breakfast is to die for! on a beautiful jetty. Great Buffet! I am going to miss those yummy egg Benedict!
Thank you La Reserve for this unforgettable holiday. We will be back!

We've spent two weeks in this Hotel and enjoyed much the relaxing atmosphere, great spaces and superb view. It was fully booked but we had always the feeling that it's like off-season. Rooms are spacious and nicely decorated in Seychelles style. It's not on the main beaches, so you need a bike (can be rented free in the hotel) to get to other beaches or shops. Staff is very friendly and helpful, even if the service is not always professional. The hotel is offering some excursions, which are highly recommended, they are well-organized boat trips with snorkeling/hiking. The hotel has officially two restaurants, but one is only serving breakfast and dinner, the other one is only open for lunch. There are 3 bars, but one is only open in the daytime, the other one at dinner, the third one was closed during our stay. Dinners are good, with thematic buffets/menus. What we didn't like: breakfast is pretty boring, every morning the same: two sorts of cold cut, cheddar cheese, smoked fish, the same "home-made yoghurt" (put out without any cooling), powder-milk, pancake, eggs, a small selection of fruits,fruit juice out of the box. You get 2 bottles of water on arrival and after that each bottle will be charged - at pretty high price. And the birds: everywhere in the restaurants, on the tables, on the breakfast buffet, literally everywhere, and they are "dropping" everywhere, on the tables, chairs, even on us, guests. The hotel has obviously no solution to this problem.

Room Tip: Every villa has an amazing beach view, you don't need to be afraid of it :)

The location of this Seychelles hotel is one of the best on Praslin. Next to the sea and very nice snorkling waters just outside your room basically. The restaurant is on a pier in the water and very romantic and cosy having dinner in.
Friendly staff, very nice and huge pool with the opportunity to borrow bikes.
Nice food

Room Tip: The villa's on the left side of the restaurant is more or less 5 m. from the sea. We would choos...

This was our third visit to La Reserve (others in 2003 / 2010) and, yet again, the hotel lived up to expectations. After an un-eventfull flight via Dubai and Mahe we arrived to warm friendly greetings a cooling cocktail and, as returning clients, an upgrade to a beach front deluxe apartment. With its change of ownership we were initially concerned that some benefits may have been eroded...but we ere to find this was not the case

The rooms remain excellent; spacious with a separate area for bathing with a most efficient wet room (which made the sunken bath almost superfluous) Beds are large and firm, air-con efficient and quiet and, in our case, view across to beach and ocean very relaxing. The rooms are well serviced by a team of positive and helpful individuals

Food in the jetty restaurant remains of a high standard with a mixture of served and buffet (self service) meals provided. We would have preferred a higher proportion of non-buffet meals....but this is a minor negative. Service in the restaurant was very good with opportunity to watch a variety of fish swimming under the pier while you eat

The swimming pool remains one of the exceptional benefits to this hotel, with a large area of not too deep, warm water and a swim-up bar. The pool was mostly empty on our visit but would have taken a large group to impact the peace

Located within he marine reserve the hotel offers some very good snorkelling from the beach as well as organised trips to St Pierre Island which (generally) offers some of the best snorkelling anywhere I have been. (worthwhile noting at this point that July is the time of trade wind changes so making the sea 'choppy' turning snorkelling into more of an exercise than is ideal) Future visits will be considered in February to avoid this problem

All staff were keen and happy to help in any way possible. I must make special note of the receptionist Helena who went out of her way to make our visit most relaxing and enjoyable

Room Tip: If you want to get the best snorkelling....go in February / March

Everything was great in this hotel, we loved our stay over there and the location is great.
Large rooms and our was just in front of the beach so every morning we wake up and just step out to look at the beautiful sea.

Food is also very nice and the staff is very kind.

I really suggest this one to all people that want to spend a great vacation in Praslin.

We only stayed three nights at La Reserve and loved every minute of our stay. The resort itself is tucked away on a nice beach and is secluded from other properties. The room was well decorated and very spacious. The breakfast and dinners were good (we particularly liked the Asian buffet) and sitting out on the pier with the amazing views makes for an even more enjoyable time.
Service all around was fantastic with everyone always very helpful. When our originally booked tour was cancelled, they re-arranged and added an excursion they normally only do on other days, which was very thoughtful and ended up being a great day.
We did a little snorkeling right off the beach but it was a little churned up due to weather - but on a clear day, it looks like it would have been great snorkeling.
It's also one of the closer hotels to Anse Lazio, which was our favorite beach on all of Praslin.

Amazing location, potentially the best on island with private bay, near to best beaches and good restaurants. Pool fantastic. Restaurant pier lovely. Awesome breakfasts. Rooms spacious, clean and private... affordable luxury for Seychelles. Service excellent. Free use of kayaks and bikes for exploring. We had B&B and the restaurant food bit too expensive and not as good as local restaurants...so dare to venture out (E.g. P Kays and Pirogue. Overall great hotel choice.
