The near to the beach is perfect, and also the small apartment is very nice. You are near restaurants and everything you need. Get a car if you stay longer. (Don't go to the boat house, avoid their buffet if possible). You find pretty restaurants around you that are better. The booked breakfast was quite good (person is coming at... More

We spent 5 days here and had an amazing time. The 4 apartments all face directly onto the beach. The bedrooms are on top and have a great view from the balcony while the kitchen and sitting room are downstairs and literally open onto the beach. The property is very comfortable and has all the necessary facilities. The beach is... More

The Beau Vallon beach on the island of Mahé is a dream place to visit. The Clef des Iles apartments are right at the beach with the best pizza restaurant of Mahé sharing the roof and a great diving school on the other side of the block. Local food and nice restaurants are at walking distances and at Mike's super... More

We stayed in Clefs des Iles for a week with our two teenage daughters. I cannot recommend this place enough- it is literally a home from home on the Beach. We had looked at Hotels (how much?!) but on recommendation from friends decided to stay here- and we are so happy we did. We had the larger central duplex Iles... More

We had booked a 4 night stay at this small self catering apartment which was right on the beach in Beau Vallon Bay, Mahe. There are 4 apartments in a row which lead directly onto the superb beach. The apartment was to a very good standard, and although no meals were included, a simple breakfast was bought to the apartment... More

An overall very pleasant stay. The room was spacious, clean and overall acceptable, however, would not rate as upscale. Having a fully furnished apartment allowing the option to make your own meals and snacks was a big plus. The location was excellent as it was a few steps from a beautiful beach allowing for nice walks and views of the... More

We had moved between hotels before finding Clef des Iles. It is right on the beach so perfect for familes(our son is 7) and there is far far more space than normal hotel. The service is superb and Stephane and Marquise go out of their way to look after the guests. Everything just works so we return year after year.... More
