A perfect Guesthouse on La Dique, quiet and very clean with a beautiful garden, very nice breakfast and excellent diner - we enjoyed it two times, compliments to the cook, and the service was just great - no need to go to a restaurant, might be difficult to get such tasteful food for that value. We would like to thank Jamal, always being available to support and his restaurant service, for his kindness and always good mood which made the stay a remarkable one. The right place to be for a stay on this island.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Reasonable restaurant. Excellent service. Quiet location. Rental bikes aren't well maintained so, if hiring, do it yourself at one of the several depots around the jetty. Not only is that cheaper but you can check the brakes and gears and make sure the bike's right for you. Anse Source d'Argent is easily accessible but very busy. Grand Anse, also nearby, is much quieter but lacks shade. 15 minute walk north of grand anse, Petite Anse is quiet and picture perfect with some shade among the rocks at north end. 15 minute further by foot Anse Cocos has plenty of shade.
we stayed in etoile for 2 nights, on the day of our check out we had our early morning jetty so the staff made sure we aren't travelling empty stomach and provided us the breakfast early which won our hearts. Rooms were neat & clean.
The room was comfortable and surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden. To reach the center of the island you need to bike 10 minutes, but this gives the location extra quietness and charme. The restaurant, where they serve dinner on request, was delicious. Breakfast is good and abundant, could be more varied though. Everyone 's very kind and helpful. I suggest a stay!
We stayed here in July 2016. And it’s become our benchmark ever since, when staying is similar places (family I owned small hotels). Staying at Etoile Labrine felt like being part of the family. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. And amazing cooks on top of that! If you consider having dinner outside the hotel, forget it. We tried that option too; but nothing compares to the meals you get there. And they have special themes some nights. We were lucky to be there for a fresh seafood (catch of the day) barbecue night; and we are still talking about it. Even though it’s not on the beach, the place is like a little Eden garden in the middle of the island. And a 5 minutes bike trip away from Anse Source d’Argent beach. We actually reduced our stay on Praslin island only to spend the last two nights back at Etoile Labrine. Seychelles is not a cheap holiday but destination; and with that in mind at Etoile Labrine you will get value for money. …
