“Incredible hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for the Easter vacation. It is a beautiful hotel with the most amazing view. Our villa had an incredible ocean view, imagin laying in bed and watching the ocean and waking up to the sounds of the ocean breeze. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the bedroom is very tropical and relaxing. The dinner buffet has different themes for every night, nothing fantastic about the food. The breakfast buffet is kinda boring as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping is not the most dedicated I must say, they do not pay attention to details, they do not really clean but pick around them.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visit this beautiful island.

We had a great time in this beautiful located hotel. The bungalows are nicely arranged in the large 'garden' and modern equipped (we got after some days even decaffeinated Illy coffee bags for the designer espresso machine).

We especially enjoyed snorkeling in the water just on the riff at the hotel and sighted sea turtles, eagle rays, moray eels, some puffer and box fishes and nice groups of other colorful fishes. Just swim straight towards the island of Silhoutte and the to the west...

We liked the morning buffet with great variety. If you ask for something special they tried to make it possible.

As we were on our honeymoon we got a wonderful candle light dinner in the small place at the end of the boardwalk surrounded by Sound of waves... Incredible service, great food and gorges setting...
on the beach you can walk to the other places in Beau Vallon, which is the most touristic beach on Mahe and the Seychelles we saw. But the hotel is at the far edge of the beach and so we didn't experience any disturbances...

This is a high quality hotel in a beautiful location. Spent a week here. Service was quietly efficient , staff smiling and polite. Visited a number of other hotels in the area and this is by far the best. House restaurant is good but expensive, but other good quality restaurants nearby. Great beach. Room was very comfortable and well equipped. Will visit again.

Stunning location, right by sea with infinity pool to admire the view. Staff are trained to cater for every need and always smiling! The rooms are beautiful with terraces or little gardens overlooking the sea and 'state of the art' bathrooms. The food is superb from freshly cooked breakfast to fine dining at the a la carte or a buffet of the highest standard. There is a lovely walk along the beach or gym to work up an appetite. The whole scene is idyllic !

Room Tip: All amazing!

Just returned from a most enjoyable break in the warmth of the Seychelles. The warmth was more than matched by the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff at Fishermans Cove.
The hotel shows its age in certain areas and plans are in hand for improvements, a fire involving the main dining area has resulted in closure of some facilities but obviously repair and re opening
will take place in due course.
We enjoyed a suite with superb views over the ocean. The beach is nearby but not directly in front of the hotel, thus most people congregate around the pool where space is somewhat limited and caused many murmurings where loungers were reserved and not used for hours on end.
Food was good but in common with Seychelles in general fairly expensive, also the main restaurant is buffet (varied themes) which is not our preference. The alternative a la carte restaurant is fairly small and offers a good but limited menu, also expensive if going right through the card. Drink prices are steep and as other bars and restaurants are a 20 dollar taxi round trip not a these are not a cheap alternative.

The hotel area is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and groves of coconut palms.
The outdoor terrace Le Meridien Fisherman's Cove offers spectacular views of the blue lagoon and the beach Beuvallon - one of the most beautiful on the island.
The main restaurant Le Cardinal with a very beautiful view of the sea and a delicious variety of cuisine is different from many other restaurants by the presence of air conditioners.
The second restaurant Le Bourgeois - open, located right on the waterfront, in the menu, mostly seafood.
Just have a drink and a snack at the bar, you can lounge.
I did not like the beach, where you can swim, the hotel does not. You need to go to Berjaya ... Although this is not a problem...
You can take a boat and go to the neighboring islands, of which there are many around Mahe. There absolutely wild beaches with white sand and crystal clear lagoons, and the mass of all of entertainment, ranging from snorkeling and diving, finishing ...
All our staff are friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Corner suites more better...for me..

We spent nine nights at the Fishermen's Cove in February, having previously stayed at other hotels on Mahe, but this was easily the best. The owners have invested in the property to keep it up to date and it shows. We were informed in advance that the main restaurant had been closed following damage to its roof, but the temporary restaurant in what would normally be the foyer area worked well and we did not notice the loss of the main restaurant. For my wife's birthday we had a private dinner party at the end of the pier, which was a fantastic setting. Afternoon tea on the pier is also recommended. We had a lovely deluxe room with its own terrace overlooking the pool and spectacular sea views. The open plan bathing arrangements are innovative and made the room feel more spacious. Special thanks go to Mathieu the General Manager, Brenda the Assistant Manager, for whom nothing was too much trouble, Juliana in Le Bourgeois restaurant and Bernadette in the main restaurant for making our stay more enjoyable.
