4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2015

The apartment was not too cosy and a kitched under equipped but with breakfast included we did not want to cook anyway. Everything worked properly, wifi, AC hot water. Parking was possible within the gate. The restaurant is not stylish either but we had the best dinners here. Beach is really close, to explore the island we rented a car right at the jetty, arranged by the hotel. It was really smooth, when leaving the island we just left the car with the keys hidden inside at the jetty. More

It's superb place for the money you pay. Propobly the best on Praslin, besides tousands dollar hotels. Friendly and very helpful staff. They can organise very nice time, barbecue, boat trips, fishing trips, they will take you to the disco place or casino. Wish to meet such a nice people everywere. I've seen few places in the world and thats the best place to rest on a beautiful beach. If you only have love with travel you'll have same reflections... More
