Value
The Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel stands out with a completely new hotel concept for the Seychelles: Premium comfort at an affordable price. The island's best value-for-money is located at the absolutely best area directly on the most attractive strip of beach in the famous Beau Vallon Bay on the largest of Seychelles' islands, Mahé. 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 name Coral Strand has always attracted guests with its breath-taking ocean views and fantastic location directly on the white sand beach. 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. With the new name Coral Strand Smart Choice, the hotel now wants to offer the best value-for-money hotel in the Seychelles.

Good location but hotel needs to be upgraded. Oceanview rooms could be pool facing and look through the trees towards the Ocean. Do not be fooled. Rooms spacious and clean but looking tired and much smaller than the pictures show.

Check out weather forecasts with a 10 days preview to get a better idea ... it rarely rains all day long, often some passing showers so by my experience, it should be fine to travel at this time

We were expecting an en-suite in the master but there is one small bathroom only and the showers are very small. We were a family of three for the holiday and it was okay. Not brilliant but certainly doable. Enjoy
