“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed at the Valmer Resort for 4 nights in a Deluxe Villa with amazing view over the sea. The room was very clean and nicely decorated and had all we could wish for, AC, Kitchen, TV and a huge bathroom. The hotel itself is located on a hill, I therefore recommend you rent a car during your stay, as its quite a steep walk up. The hotel restaurant offered a great choice of food for breakfast and is located at the top of the hill right next to the pool. Their infinity pool was definitely the highlight of our stay - this view... incredible. Try it at sunset ;) Their employees were taking good care of us and even prepared breakfast in our room when we had to leave at 5 in the morning to catch our flight back. We can highly recommend to visit this place, as it was an unforgettable and affordable experience.

We stayed at Valmer Resort for a week for our 10th wedding anniversary and didn't regret it at all. We went in February so nice and quiet, with the idyllic beach just a 5 minute walk away there were only a handful of people on it at any one time. Such friendly locals and the kids were cute. The hotel had been recently renovated so in pretty good shape, we had a deluxe bungalow which I would recommend. It had a kitchenette which was good for when you fancy a lunchtime in (shops only 10 mins away). The food was quite good (quite pricey but most things in the Seychelles are). Beautifully situated on the side of a hill built to incorporate the volcanic rocks already there, this does mean that there's a steep walk up to the various parts of the complex but it didn't bother us. The staff were really friendly and helpful. A car for 2 or 3 days is maybe worth it but the bus is an experience too, goes all the way to Victoria and another goes down the coast. Would highly recommend for a relaxing away from it experience. I'll always remember looking out to sea from the infinity pool.

Room Tip: Deluxe bungalow's seem best.
