The fish ceviche to start with was great, the main fish dishes were average. It was a bit slow and service was slow, but it was a charming location on the beach. Especially on this quieter side of the island this is a good option.

We stayed at the Islander for four nights during our Island Hopping tour at the Seychelles in January 2016. The apartments are in a beautiful location, with a nice private beach and close to the magnificent Anse Lazio, that can be reached with a beautiful 45 minutes hike. The apartments are wide and nice from the outside, with nice garden.... More

Praslin and the Seychelles are our favourite travel destination since 25 years. The Islander Guest House offers a beautiful and true way to the discover this paradise. Bungalows are charming and the Godley family is wonderful. Away from big hotels here you can find the real luxury. Very good food, clean and charming rooms, a huge variety of exotic plants... More

Stayed 5 nights in the end of November/2013 and no doubt it was a high point in our journey (group of 3 friends) around Seychelles: for the kindness of the family that owns the Guesthouse; for the waiters, always in a good mood; for the excellent food served at breakfast and dinner (at the Capricorn Restaurant) - good portions, fresh...

Stayed for 5 nights. Liked the apartment, clean tidy and well kept. Very friendly and polite staff. Only had breakfast which was standard fruit,toast and eggs but was very nice and more than sufficient. From what we could make out the beach has suffered sever erosion and is now rather small and has a bank of granite rocks stopping further... More

directly at the beach (30m). The "double room" IS a 2 room apt. (sleaping room + citchen + bath + terrase). All very clean. Beach is nice, sunset. Walking distance to great Anse Lazio 35 minutes. Beach is sandy but may have some underwater rocks (carefull). With no waves shnorkeling is possible (swim 20 m to the rocks).

The room I had was beautiful and very large, and there's a nice porch facing the water. There is a nice size fridge & a small kitchen. There is a safe in the room. By far my biggest gripe is the extra charge for the A/C - it was the only place I stayed in the Seychelles that tacked that... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Islander Guest House is a small family-run hotel. We are located on a property of more than 4,000sq metres of flat land at Anse Kerlan Beach, in the north-west coast of Praslin, one of the world's most beautiful tropical islands. The Islander Hotel offers comfortable relaxation in a holiday home of your choice, in self-contained Creole style bungalows, ranging from Standard to Family Villa. All accommodations stand proudly amongst well-tended lush gardens, filled with a riot of flowering shrubs. The Islander Hotel has its own private parking. A tortoise-pen is found close to the parking area and guests can feed them from the nearby grasses or leaves. The reception offers assistance for all your holiday requirements, such as excursions, fishing trip, diving, car rental, taxis, and more. The beach is a few steps away, providing the ultimate enjoyment of sun, sea and sand practically on your doorstep, and capping most every day with glorious sunsets. There you can find a newly built gazebo in the Balinese style, with beach beds, chairs and tables, shower, and other amenities. ... more   less
