Loved this hotel it was located on the famous beau vallon beach the spa was amazing the food was great there (breakfast had limited fruit options) the rooms were spacious but I did not like the lack of privacy in the bathrooms (no bathroom door frosted windows only) there was a supermarket opposite the hotel which was convenient & loads of excursions left from the hotel beach itself. I would stay here again

It was an early flight… we arrived roughly arrived 7AM. My wife, child and myself exhausted and out of breathe due to the light night flight, we arrived at the hotel and surprisingly the only time to check-in is at 3PM. “Strictly” we cannot be sympathetically give you the room until (no specific time) the guest check-out at 11AM, Sanitise the room ( i don’t know for how long) and then we can check you in. So here are my questions… do you have any sort of sympathy towards the child we are carrying with us? Do you have to gossip and talk your language behind my back? I believe you do know the english language. 4 employees just to check-out 1 family?? How slow can you be?

We did a half board at STORY and it was the best decision ever. Chef Karan, J.Rose, Priscilla, Aye and a lot of the others whose names I can’t recall (sorry) at Vasco restaurant. They were very accommodative going above and beyond for our kids. Being vegetarian we also got special meals done. Can’t thank the team there enough. Collin at reception was great to give us the main view points in the island, and so was his evening replacement ( can’t recall the name sorry!). Wavel was patient and took us out for snorkeling. Yes the place might be a bit old but the beach is great and the service is excellent, people are really nice which made it a awesome vacation. Don’t miss the snorkeling even though you might be a beginner, Wavell will help. Go for the half board the team at the restaurant are very accommodative. The PCR test was very conveniently done at the hotel and was reasonable and equivalent to the standard rates in Seychelles Great time overall! Loved it

Beautiful location and even more beautiful people working in the property. The manager Valerie was very helpful for smooth check in and check out and also provided info about nearby places. The food was amazing throughout our ten days stay. All the staff at the restaurant was on their toes tu fulfill any other requirements other than the main menu. Will surely visit again in future.
