I would not recommend anyone to go to Takamaka Residence.
If you want to stay in the Seychelles, in the cheapest manner possible, this will be where they send you. During our stay, backpackers in fact showed up. But the price is not that low!!!
What you get for your money is not worth it.
The rooms need to be brought down and built up again. It is built many many years ago, in a very simple style. If you want to go simple then this is the place.
Everything is kept in brown and depressive similar colours and everything has that "old and used" touch. No hot water.
A small shelf in the bathroom.
Dogs running around everywhere. Don't leave anything on the so-called terrace, as the dogs will take it.
The food: homemade and simple. Don't go near the kitchen, as you might not want to eat afterwards.
You can walk to the beach, but takes 7 minutes ca. You have to pass through a part of land that is made of sump and rubbish.
Please spend your money better than here. By spending a bit more, you have lots of opportunities around the island. We went looking for other places, but had paid in advance to stay 7 nights, so we did. But will never ever come back.
Was really the worst place I have ever been. Backpacking beforehand seeemed like luxury compared to this!
