“Super Hotel in Mahe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We spent 5 nights at the villa le bonheur on Mahe and are totally satisfied. The owners Don and Marylene did everything for us and are the loveliest hosts we ever have meet. If you are loooking for a familiar location your absolutly right here.
The hotel and garden is very well looked after.
If you like, its possible to eat dinner at the hotel and this we highly recommend. The dinners, created by Bernhard are very delicious.
So if you like to pass some wonderful days on Mahe you really should choice this hotel.

I stayed in Le Bonheur villa at beggining of may 2013 with my husband and son(3 and half years old) for 12 days. Everything was perfect. The villa is big,clean with a big swiming pool. The owners Marylene and Don Rea are very nice and we became good friends and can't wait to come back.We felt like a part of a family. The food is awsome. I can't find words to describe how good it was. I never in my life ate so good. And is also a good value for money. My son was sick for 5 days and they were very helpful,they took us to doctor,preparing special food for my son....I highly recommend this place to everybody.

My husband and I travelled out with our 14month old daughter. We were met at the airport by the wonderful Bernard, who is a top class chef! Who can cook fish every night and make each meal taste so different! Fantastic food and our daughter couldn't get enough either. They were very accommodating of her. Even taking her off our hands so we could eat in peace. Marylene is a fantastic host and pity we never got to meet her smiley husband Don, next time! Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very much at home. Good advice on what to do and see.
The beach out the front is lovely but was unfortunately too rough for us to use with our daughter but as we had a hire car we explored all the coastlines anyway.

Can't recommend enough. Thank you Marylene and Bernard for a wonderful and relaxing time, we easily could of become part of the furniture.

We loved Seychelles, its pristine beaches, its rain forests, its beauty and, last but not least, staying at le Bonheur Villa in Mahe!
Le Bonheur in french means happiness. And we were very happy to be hosted by the owner Marylene, a warm, distinguished and friendly lady! Happy to enjoy the fantastic evening meals prepared by a great chef, Bernard! Happy to feel at home, in a beautiful surrounding! Happy to have Marylene attend to all our needs! Happy to feel we acquired new friends in the Seychelles!
Don't hesitate! Le Bonheur is a happiness to go to!
NB: Don, the husband of Marylene, was away while we were there but having spoken to him on the phone, he too sounded very friendly and outgoing!
We will go back! Bob & Christina

We stayed at Le Bonheur for
many times and it is always very special to us. To be greeted at the airport with a big smile by Don, being told the latest news of the Island on our way to their beautiful home and get a warm welcoming hug by Marylene. Sitting together in the evening and enjoying an exceptional meal , is that paradise? Yes, and we will be back

Nice residence with beautiful rooms.
There is a large suite with two beds, a kitchen and a spacious terrace on the first floor.
There are smaller rooms and a bathroom on the ground floor.
Owners were helpful a lot and did their best to satisfy all our requirements and wishes.
As to the cuisine, every morning the landlady baked the best muffins in the world and his son
Bernard is a champion in seafood cooking.
In the surroundings there is not any other possibility for lodgings and in the local shops you
can buy everything you need.
The beach in front of the suite is not suitable for swimming( because of the big waves ) but
only few metres away there are lovely beaches without any tourists

We had the privilege of being hosted by friendly,informative hosts Don and Marilyn at the Le Bonheur. Don was at the airport to greet us and immediately made us feel comfortable and relaxed Unfortunately, we only had an overnight stay. Out hosts were outstanding and went out of their way to accommodate all our needs (including emergency shopping and visit to a pharmacy for antibiotics after a lost suitcase.)
Bernard the chef served a superb meal - one of the best prawn curries ever.
If you are looking for a personal "small hotel", with personalized service, great food, away from one of the big,expensive chain hotels - this is one of the better options we have come across in Mahe.
