stayed for 9 days on Cerf Island and can recommend it for people who are short on time and do not like long transfers in their vacations. The hotel is a romantic hideway with beautiful rooms, featuring a large terrace and a outdoor bathroom. The food is excellent and this is one of the only places on the Seychelles where... More

We arrived for our honeymoon to find their were renovating the place. They tried to put us into a "suite" one level below what we booked right next to where the renovations were taking place. It was extremely messy and a sight for sore eyes. The service is extermelylack luster and the food is quite bland. After some arguments they... More

Quiet yet very cosy resort with just 12 bungalows (soon +12) : No cars on Cerf Island. Most of the guests friendly, no glitzy people. Under new management: Very helpful and friendly staff. Very nice and spacious bungalows (one with a perfect sea-view). Rooms service: Perfect, with cleaning/ towel change also in the evening etc.. No insects in the interior... More

We have been at cerf island resort for our honey moon. The service has been awful, the personnel was completly uninterested in our good stay, creating a cold air. The only positive note is about the habitations, simply beautifull...unfortunately you have to climb a hill to reach them!!!!

The hotel is actually pretty nice. The island is very peaceful and relaxing. The rooms are great and the scenery is beautiful. The shower outside was our favorite. The resort has great potential, but the poor quality of service definitely ruined our experience. We wanted a place to just get away and relax. The island resort was exactly what we... More

It is a boutique hotel, only 12 rooms run by a couple. The villas are great, very airy and spacious, the bathrooms are huge and open air. Some of the rooms have really great views of Mahe. It is basically a very quiet resort, you can do kayaking, snorkeling, chill in the pool. The food is nice but the service... More

I can't understand why people push their ignorance as fault for others (details later). We went to Cerf Island Resort on our honeymoon and believe me writing this review brings back the great memories. The kind of reviews I read (read bad ones) I was a bit reluctant to make a booking here, but took a chance. I am glad... More

Went for a relaxing holiday and got what we wanted - very peaceful and in a beautiful setting. I have to agree with many of the previous reviewers comments apart from the fact that the manager has now changed (was new when I arrived) and I found him nothing but helpful and attentive. The Tortoise Suite we stayed in was... More
