Villa Vanilla is a small and stylish hotel, with views of the Seychelles sea, mountains, and forests. Actually, the hotel is surrounded by beautiful trees and it is enjoyable to be in the spacious balconies amidst so much green. The downside is that Villa Vanilla is located high on the hills close to Port Glaud in a very steep road. Having a rental car is highly advisable, unless you are very keen on walking. A rental car is a good idea in Mahe anyway to visit the many sensational beaches the island has.
The rooms are well-appointed, with spacious bathrooms, and large balconies. The pool is good but deep - parents should keep supervise their kids in the pool. There is no shallow pool for children.
The staff is very responsive to requests and gave useful hints on where to go and what to do. The breakfasr and buffet diner are excellent. The chef does a great job in balancing local and international dishes, all of them delicious.
I highly recommend Villa Vanilla (and a rental car to get there).
