We traveled to Mahe Island in August 2nd week and stayed at Coral Strand for five days. This being the first visit to Seychelles, that too with kids, I was not sure of the experience I would get. I finally hailed my decision of choosing Coral Strand for this. This hotel is right on the beach, which is amazing since... More

Location of the hotel was perfect for us, right on Vallon Beach. This is a small hotel which has a cosy feel especially at night time with all the lights surrounding the grounds. Buffet breakfast is fantastic - definitely worth to add on, huge selection of about everything that you could want for breakfast. They do evening theme buffet nights... More

I have been there for 5 days. I must say that the fours restaurants that the hotel has provide a large variety of food. The food was tasty. one problem is that the room seemed not to be well maintained.

We had a lovely time in the Coral Strand. The location right on the beach was perfect. The staff were all amazing and couldn't do enough to help. The food in the hotel was a bit average for the price, but we found a couple of brilliant local restaurants. All in all I would definitely return to the Coral Strand.
