Don't go if they have building work going on. Great to walk off the pool area straight onto the beach. The whole island is rather expensive but if you know that before you go then no problem. Not much to do in Victoria, the capital, especially on a Sunday, everywhere is closed.

Good location, right on beach, open deck restaurant ambience can improve, should be more lively / lighting etc. By default guest relation should check with guest their program & make suggestions as I missed out on some interesting activities in the hotel & in Seychelles during our stay which I came to know while checking out.

The location, right on Beau Vallon beach, is excellent. Rooms are fairly small but comfortable. All facilities are provided and the food in the restaurants is very good. We enjoyed excellent breakfasts including fresh tropical fruit, an Indian meal at the attached restaurant and Japanese food on the terrace. WiFi was available but not completely reliable and the air conditioning... More

Our stay at the Coral Strand was incredible! The food is reasonably priced and the hotel is in an excellent location on one of the most beautiful and popular beaches but still within a short drive to Victoria. The staff is so friendly and helpful. It was a great stay.

Planned to stay else but due to overbooking ended up in Coral Strand. Loud Renovations spoiled the short vacation but located very good with lots of entertainment options nearby. The streetmarket on Wednesday evenings is worth a visit

I spent my last in the Seychelles at this Hotel. It's a standard hotel by the edge of the ocean with a beach a stone throw away. The staff was pleasant and the rooms were ok. If you looking for something that works and good on the pocket this is the place for you.

Our first choice Hotel, The Savoy was fully booked and Coral Strand is 100 meters away from the Savoy where I was attending a conference, so we opted for this one, despite some of the negative reviews on tripadvisor. We were pleasantly surprised. The location is fantastic on the beach, the only hotel on the island with a direct beach... More

This hotel is comfortable and has great views to offer, I think it has the best location in Mahe. I had the beach view from one side and the mountain view from the other from my suite. Service is great with a staff that is happy to help. One bad thing is the internet service was terrible and I had... More

Location is great on the Beau Vallon, with the beach right in front of you! Staff is helpful and generous. Prices are a bit high at the restaurants, so shop around when dinning. Overall great place, and you can meet so many people at the hotel from all over the world!

No space to work with a laptop though and Wifi was sporadic. Food in the hotel was good, and the Indian Restaurant was enjoyable. Good breakfasts in... More

Hardly any other hotel has such a beach and ocean view. The 4 star plus hotel has 161 modern and attractively equipped rooms. There are 140 standard rooms, 4 junior suites, 21 deluxe rooms. The original Coral Strand opened in 1972 as one of the first hotels on the Seychelles.

The last 40 years have seen a steady stream of return guests. The hotel bar with its live music has established itself as a legendary meeting point for tourists and locals. The original hotel was completely reconstructed and renovated with new design, equipment and contemporary comfort. The service offer was also completely reorganized.
