We stayed here for Christmas and New Year 2015/2016 for a 10 days holiday. The hotel is situated in a bay which was considered to be a pirate's cove in the former times. What you should know about the place - as per its description - it is an Eco Resort nestled in the nature and "cooperating" with the nature.... More

Our bungalow was fine with a balcony overlooking the bay. Lots of birds and wildlife and very restful. It was self-catering but the nearest shops are over a mile away so you need a car or can take a bus. They do not have bike hire which was a pity as you can ride to the nearest town about 4km...

We did a 4 day stop over on Praslin in April which coincided with Easter holidays and you can imagine most hotels were full and rather busy especially Mahe. However Iles Des Palmes offered something different and rather unique. The hotel was full but we felt like the only ones there most of the time. The hotel has extensive grounds... More

nice place because of the amazing view and pool. And staff's friendly. Restaurant pretty expensive and quiet compared to others we've seen somewhere else on the island. Breakfast you better make in your own kitchen., no need to spend 30,- euro's for 2 people for some fruit, few small pieces of toast, an egg, tea OR ;-) coffee, OR juice...However,... More

Thank you for taking time to place a comment for Iles Des Palmes Eco Resort. The family beach bungalows are set along Anse Takamaka. It is a wonderful setting for access to virtually an exclusive beach. The tide level makes it safe for children, who can play under huge trees in the sand all day. The pool side offers food... More

We spent 4 days in Iles de palmes and it was very relaxing. Nice quiet place, bungalows by the sea, but not good for swimming. Car rental is a must in Praslin, the best beach Anse Lazio is about 10-15 mins drive from the hotel. Service was good and welcoming. Breakfast is served but good. includes fresh fruit, toast, homemade... More

The place is spot on beautiful, the Chef was very helpful and the rest of the staff was very sweet too. The problems we faced were walking to the reception every time we had work with the resort staff. There was no air condition in the cottages, just one fan in the 1BHK cottage. Also, the Wifi only works at... More

Madam perhaps you did not know you were booking at an Eco resort. Here your carbon foot print is deliberately kept to a minimal. We maximize other aspects of your trip. The fan has four speeds, not one. The cottage is 66 square meters on the beach. The price you paid was not for the Tajmahal. It was quite frugal.... More

Our group stumbled upon lles des Palmes during a morning walk from our hill top location. While wondering the grounds we happened upon a splendid waterfront dining room harboring their restaurant. There is a lack of fine dining opportunities on Praslin and especially ones without the snooty factor. We made reservations for that evening and were thrilled by the menu... More
