It's our first time to visit Seychelles and stayed in this hotel for 4 days. As soon as we arrived, we were welcomed by a mixed fruit drink and did the check in at the garden with the view of the Sunset Beach. The hotel was beautiful, although a bit old as we felt that it wasn't maintained properly by the management. I would suggest the management to keep the hotel on the same look but at least maintain it to its tip top shape. Peggy, the one who assisted us, upgraded our Ocean Room to an Ocean Villa (a 2 bedroom, 2 storey villa). We were so overwhelmed and thankful as the villa gives you a more space and a fantastic view of the sunset in the Indian Ocean. It really made our stay extra special and memorable. The 2nd room's aircon in the villa wasn't working properly but I didn't bother since it was not that hot. There's just one instance that we have an uninvited guest, which was a 3-inch spider in the toilet. It wasn't that dangerous and was removed by hotel staff quickly, I guess it is normal for a tropical country to have it. Peggy prepared a comprehensive "on our own travel" itinerary to Praslin and La Digue when we felt awful from the outside money-making agents who are arranging trips to the island. She made also the costing and the taxi arrangements and explained thorougly how to go and what are the highlights to see. She was really like a mum to us and we felt like we're "home". The buffet breakfast was ok, we love the fruits and the omelette. The creole dinner was not bad at all. It's actually better than Hilton's sea food buffet when we had dinner there and it's even half the price. The bar was a bit old but nice as there's an area for fish feeding. The bar man and staff were friendly and warm. Over-all the stay was great and I would recommend this to people who wanted a more personal touch and to try something different out of the common regular hotel chain service. Look for Peggy and am very much sure that she will cover up all the small shortcomings of the hotel by the service that she is providing to hotel guests. We shall return soon! :)
There are two sides of the hotel for rooms. Don't choose the one on the beach side as sometimes...
