Best place to stay, so quiet and nice. very good service, cleaning every day. Everyone who worked was very nice and helpful, always did the little extra to make it all good. Wanted to send an extra star to Adjed who always made sure we were fine, came with extra umbrella when there was a lot of rain and we had been shopping, although it was about 10 meters to our door from the parking lot. The owner Maryese (don't know if I spelled the name correctly) was very helpful and nice, informed us of different places to visit. She was very familiar and caring. They gave us cucumbers and other assorted vegetables from time to time from their garden. They always asked if we needed anything. Nice with own kitchen and it was large and spacious bedroom, plenty of drawers and shelves, the bed was king size a little hard but perfectly ok. The bathroom was large and clean. Walking distance to a little smaller beach and about 10 min to the nearest grocery store. We rented a car the whole time we were here. We stayed here for 23 days and will book here again if we return to Seychelles

We spent 9 nights here, and we couldn't be happier. We were able to check in earlier, as our apartment was available at the time we arrived (before midday). The apartment was large for the two of us. The pictures you find online are a real reflection of what you encounter when you check in. The swimming pool was one of the best parts, as while you relax, you had the chance to enjoy the beautiful view and see some bats flying around, close to the fruit trees outside the property. It was absolutely amazing. The staff kindly cleaned our apartment every day. There are three shops (or mini markets) nearby, where you could get groceries. I think it took us less than 10 minutes to walk to the nearest one. This place is very close to Bel Ombre beach. We didn't like that beach very much, so we rented a car and moved freely around the island. There is plenty of space to park your car there, so that's one thing you should not worry about. Internet connection was great every single day. I highly recommend this place.

Even though we arrived very early in the morning, our apartment was already fresh and clean waiting for us. Even better, bread, butter and jam, milk and juice were provided to give us a good start. Maryse was extremely helpful: we had them organize our rental car, which worked out without troubles. When I wanted to change some money on the first day, before the rental car arrived, Maryse drove me to the change office and gave a small tour thru Beau Vallon anyway. Our children were even allowed to pick fresh fruits from Maryse's garden. Everything was very clean and staff was very friendly, so we highly recommend this place. We recommend to rent a car as there are so many wonderful beaches to be explored. Returning of the rental car was very easy: we just had to leave it at the airport parking. We enjoyed the pool in the evening with the fruit bats flying above us.

So we went to seychells to get married and when we arrived as a normal guest the welcoming was so warm like as if they knew us. The rooms r spacious, clean & wel maintained for short and long stay! The owners r lovely that she even did a sweet simple decor for our wedding without us asking for it. This resort is perfect for couples and families. From indoor comfort to bbq parties, from safety to comfort. They got it all! Lovely staff, lovely resort & lovely view ! :)
