We had a great and relaxing week here. Good snorkeling in front of hotel. The friendly staff went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. Great excursions to various locations - loved the beautiful beaches! The food was good - always a great variety to choose from.

We spent 6 days here at the end of March and came primarily for the snorkelling. We weren't disappointed. The food was good, the rooms were large and an unusual layout, afternoon tea was a nice touch, the staff were all pleasant and helpful. The snorkelling was very good and the boat trip to the 3 snorkelling spots was well... More

Overall hotel needs renovation, facilities look old and pretty worn out, for sure showers in the room can be redesigned and enlarged to actually fit a person. Beach and snorkelling was great, dinner buffet is very good. Water is overpriced, specially as there is no shop nearby to get it from. Location is isolated and quiet, nothing but sun, beach... More

There is an electric kettle fridge and a spacious bathroom - The food is awesome and abundent - but above all the atmosphere is friendly... More

This resort is beatiful with it's free roaming giant turtles and excellent snorkelling directly from beach at housereef. Staff is doing a good work, food is good and the swimming pool is of good size. It's quiet and you won't be disturbed by other guests. On the downside is a very small shower cabin, no wifi in room ( wifi... More

Although the hotel is a bit old and doesn't have a luxury feel to it, the bay on which it is located is stunning, and provides some of the best and easiest snorkeling in the Seychelles! The excursions were also good. Restaurant wasn't very good. Overall, we had a great time there for a reasonable price.

We traveled a family of 5, 2 adults 3 children on a 9 day family vacation. Arno the manager was kind enough to let us all stay in one room even though protocol says we would have needed to split up. That is the attitude of this hotel for good and for bad. Management is very laid back...Some work very... More

We spent almost a week here and really find this location very enjoyable! We loved the excursions organized by the hotel, which seemed better than the ones organized by the tour agencies in town! The boat shuttle service made it fairly convenient to go to town. The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. They helped us arrange a rental... More

The only great interest and value of this hotel is the fantastic snorkelling location : great lagoon, and nice beaches. The hotel infrastructures are old and definitely need renovation to satisfy the 3 stars. One example is the bathroom with a very tiny and small shower cabin, that my husband could not fit in... Services, Staff competences and kindness are... More
