We were a large group and at the time of our booking, the hotel was at full occupancy. First of all, we didn't get the rooms we had opted for. The lady who welcomed us was quite nice however she wasn't very helpful because she could not help us with the water heater problem (it was not working and we showered with cold water) and she made a few mistakes on calculating our bill (undercharging us until we pointed out the errors). She did prepare some nice fresh welcoming juices which was quite refreshing and led us to our rooms. I was sharing with my colleague and I was the first to notice that the room was generally clean except for the bathroom, the toilet bowl was dirty and there were no amenities. Luckily the shop is only a 3minutes walk away and opens until quite late in the evening. There is a small pathway from the hotel that leads to the beach but that pathway is also close to a sewage discharge and the smell is not so pleasing after a heavy meal. The Chalets are strategically located because it is close to several restaurants and shops- beware of the prices though! I was upset to shower with cold water the next morning and still did no. To my surprise breakfast was delivered and not prepared at the hotel. Nonetheless the croissant was warm and freshly baked. The breakfast was French i.e. fruits, toast and pastries only. All in all, the stay was not so bad except for the small issues but I do note that it was quite affordable despite being such a busy period of the year.…
The location is really comfortable: a big room, a well furnished kitchen and a big terrace to relax on. The rooms are three minutes away from a long and beautiful beach and from shops and restaurants. Birds singing all day and beautiful nature surrounding the place. Everyone is kind and helpful. Breakfast not included but easy to prepare at home! I suggest a stay.
We stayed for 3 nights in April in the top floor apartment, which was huge. The kitchen was great to be able to cook a couple of meals, as the restaurants are pricey. There was only AC in the bedroom, so the rest of the unit was very warm. Fantastic balcony! Less than a 5 minute walk to one of the nicest beaches on the island, and very close to the small markets, shopping and restaurants. Less than a 10 minute walk to the bus stop. Highly recommend the snorkeling trip out to the small island offshore. This was a very affordable option in Praslin.
This was a real find – superb top-class spacious accommodation, yards from one of the best beaches on the island. The chalets had fully equipped kitchens so we used the two nearby mini markets to provide us with a good range of supplies for us to go self-catering on Praslin. (There are no private beaches on the Seychelles, so far as I know, and we derived great satisfaction from mingling with the clientele of some of the supposed top-class hotels knowing we had paid a fraction of the price for our brilliant chalet accommodation!). Friendly staff and very peaceful.
We have been there for the 2nd time now and were happy with the appartement (11). Had no breakfast --full self catering. Clean, friendly, all worked. Distances to Anse Volbert and the shops / restaurants are short. All you need is in the small village. Also boat trips are ok (Babba) and canouing is possible (15 EUR / 90min). Take away food is really good.
