Le duc is out last stop before going home. The rooms, the area, the staff, everything is perfect. Beyond expectation. The access to one of the best beach in Praslin is easy, and it's a 5min walks from the restaurants. Wifi is good and rooms are big with a little something who make them special

The hotel itself was outstanding. While most accommodation on Praslin is guest houses or very fancy and expensive hotels, Le Duc offers great value for its money. The food is delicious and varies a lot, they have a great variety on drinks, quite good internet connection which is rare on the Seychelles, lovely interior design in the rooms and they... More

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our one week trip to Praslin where we stayed at this hotel. We chose it because of the good reviews and the acceptable price and were not disappointed. The room was spacious and clean with a nice look over the pool and garden. It was also quiet at night and the air condition worked... More

Let me first begin by saying that overall our stay at Le Duc was perfectly 'acceptable'. The superior rooms are enormous and very modern with literally ice cold A/C! Access to the beach was incredible and they even allowed us to use beach chairs for free. And yes, there is a "but"... I was incredibly disappointed on a few fronts... More

In this hotel, the guest doesn’t comes first. I have checked out from Le Duc Hotel Praslin yesterday, and I have to say that several times I felt unconfortable here. First of all, the way of the communication of the majority of staff (mainly managers) - lets say, there is much room for improvement, like discretion and so on. Before... More

I feel like maybe this could get a 3.5 star review, but not 4. We stayed for 4 nights. The beach was great but the rest was just not nice, especially compared to two other places we visited (Raffles and Chateau de Feuilles). We paid over $400 a night. Breakfast was okay but the people working the restaurant were very... More

So lucky we picked the Le Duc! Such a nice hotel with charming bungalows, beautiful, very spacey rooms - lovely, very helpful personnel, great service (incl. maintenance), good food (both breakfast & dinner), location just a 2-min walk from the Anse Volbert. We will definitely be back!

We booked a standard double room and we got an upgrade. The suite was very comfortable with a nice terrace. Generally the staff was very friendly and the dinner as well as the breakfast was ok. We booked trips and cars outside the hotel (half price of the hotel's price) and we had a good experience.

Amazing stay. Amazing service. Amazing food. Truly 5 star. Clean rooms. Helpful staff. Romantic dinner. Purely vegetarian on request. So near to beach. Full privacy. Very smooth check in checkout. Food and drinks are little expensive but it's all over seychelles. Loved it.
