The hotel has so much potential, but it was empty! The staff were not friendly or welcoming and looked bored (which I don't blame them). There were up to 6 staff in the bar/ restaurant, and about the same number of people. The hotel seemed a little run down, though the views were great out to the ocean.

I cannot agree more with the previous bad reviews, this hotel could be one of the most spectacular hotels in seychelles, given some attention to detail. The hotel is neglected and in a serious state of disrepair,it shouldnt take to much to upgrade and give it facelift The staff were demotivated,disinterested and totally incompetent except for a few notable exceptions.One...

We stayed in South Africa 1 week for our honey moon. Than we left for Seychelles. We expected to find super cleaned room, a warm welcome and... More

Rooms were very dirty... Hotel staff doesn't know anything, even breakfast dinner timings. But spot is great, rooms right at the breach front, breakfast and dinner were great, chef is a pro for sure. Amazing place for snorkeling, no need to go anywhere, you can just do it there, fish is very friendly, overall 8 out of 10 I'd say

The place is really cool, in the north, lovely sunsets although Beau Vallon gives the same sunsets, if not better. But their private beach is just too beautiful. Secluded, lovely waters with with and coral for good snorkelling!

I did not stay at the hotel, but as a solo female traveler, I took advantage of the fact that all beaches are public in Seychelles. I walked from Beau Vallon beach area (about 2 km) and I should have been patient and waited for the bus! It is only 5 rupees to take the bus and it would have... More

After reading other reviews we decided to take a chance on Sunset Beach Hotel. We are glad we did. It is true that the condition of the resort is past its heyday and it could use some repairs and updating. However, consider that you are getting a great bargain on a great location at a resort that is a little... More

When reviews consistently point out similar shortcomings but the hotel owners go on the defensive and claim exaggeration, who do YOU believe? An owner who parks her Bentley Convertible across the hotel entrance for show, or disappointed hotel guests? This place could be unbeatable in Mahe with an injection of management expertise, enthusiasm instead of complacency, investment in the fabric... More
