We stayed here for 6 nights on Honeymoon. Cecile is a lovely owner, but sadly we didn't see her very much as she has other guesthouses; it would have been nicer to be welcomed by the owner immediately otherwise you feel a bit lost. The area is also a little quiet and a bit shabby, not what we were expecting. Apparently Beau Vallon/Bel Ombre is the place to be on Mahe but we found it shabby and a little rough. You are also cut off from the rest of the island, you have to go over the hill to Victoria every day before you can access the rest of Mahe. The rooms were very nice and clean at Ocean View, and our balcony view was excellent. We spent every night with a glass of Takamaka Bay rum watching the sun set over Silhouette Island. Although the room was big, the fixtures weren't great. The shower has periods where it doesn't go hot (water pressure issue they said), the bathroom tap was broken (but they fixed it the day we noticed) and the aircon seemed to only have on or off, the temp didn't change. There is a second bedroom with a fridge and kettle, but not really enough of a kitchen to truly cook for yourself. We actually ended up eating and renting a car at the Villa Dani up the hill. Overall, could be a lovely place, and Cecile would be lovely owner, if it wasn't let down by a few annoyances.
