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.
