“Very good accommodation in Praslin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Very good accommodation in Praslin.
The owner (Jennita) could help you in any problem or question that you have. She could help you with excursions, bike rental, transfer to/from jetty and any other point.
Close to the guesthouse you can find the biggest supermarket of the Island.
Beach is 4 minutes walking from the guesthouse.
You could reach source d’argent is 5 minutes by bicycle.
The only problem in all the guesthouses of the Island are the cockerels, there are several of the on the Island and every day at 07am you can listen them.

We spend 7 nights in one of the self catering rooms and would easily spend another 7! Comfortable bed, ceiling fan and (good and quiet) air-conditioning. Clean bathroom with a good shower. Spacious fully equipped kitchen and nice veranda overlooking a small garden. The location is very good, a few minutes walk / bike from some small shops, takeaway, restaurants and beaches. Room is being cleaned every day by friendly and helpful staff. Beach towels available and friendly hostess Jennita is happy to help with anything you need: information, reservations, bike rental or trips to surrounding Islands (a must!). We would definitely visit Hibiscus Pension again!

We chose the room and breakfast option. The room was nice and GREAT air conditioner. The kitchen had everything you could need if you wanted to cook. Breakfast every morning on the veranda was great (Coffee, fruit, Fresh Bread and Eggs)
Jennita was a fabulous host-she made it so special. I was celebrating a significant birthday and she had a cake made and her nieces and other guests sang me Happy Birthday. A day I will never forget!
Jennita also saved us; we were scheduled to leave on the first jetty from LaDigue to Pralin for a flight to Mahe and then on to Zanzibar. When the cab arrived they told her the Jetty company had canceled the morning ferry. She immediately called the jetty owner and was able to negotiate with him to have a family member ferry us over to Pralin to make our flight and the Jetty Company paid him.
THANK YOU JENNITA!!!!

Note: For anyone using the Jetty on a Sunday beware!

Pension Hibiscus is a well located and clean selfcatering guesthouse on Island La Digue. The bed- (with AC and fan) and bathroom was good and very clean. In the room there's a big fridge and a water boiler. The breakfast was delicious and the staff was very friendly. Jennita was a really nice host. We urgently needed an accommodation for our last night on the island and she was very flexible.

Unfortunately, there was not much privacy on the small terrace because the rooms were right next to each other. Even then, the value for money is excellent!

Waking to the sound of singing and laughter from the staff is the perfect start to each day. This is such a friendly place and Jennita is kind, gentle and very helpful.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. A lovely and varied breakfast is served on the private terrace each morning from 8am.
Hibiscus is ideally situated, just a short walk from everything you could need, supermarket and bank within 100m, beach a further 50m and town centre 500m.
Life is easier with a bicycle on La Digue so just ask Jennita and she will have them delivered. Cost around 100 rupees a day.
This was without doubt the most friendly and welcoming of the 4 hotels we stayed in Seychelles and will definitely stay there again on our next visit in 2012.

Thankyou Jennita!

What you long for at all the other places you finally get here in abundance: big, bright island smiles. Jennita is a star! Her little (but expanding) place is a good value for money. The rooms are functional and comfortable and spotless; what more do you need when you're spending most of your waking hours tooling around from beach to beach? Hibiscus has everything you need for self-catering (our room had the best-equipped kitchen we came across in our three weeks around the Seychelles), but if you catch word there's any kind of barbecue going on, pack up your beach towels and get back as soon as you can. It was a feast! Take advantage of the breakfast option at the very least. Les mwan goute!
