Worst place we booked in the Seychelles - didnt stay, bathrooms insanitary and chalets rundown. Beach inaccessible due to 2m wall. No wifi or telephone in chalet. Bed linen looked well past its best. Tatty curtains.

Thank you for this review. The new staff at housekeeping that came in January really, really let us down, and let our guests down. Since March 20, 2020 when we went into lock down and staff have renovated the unit in question tirelessly. We humbly accept the critique and rest assured. The matter has been resolved. We do not always get it 100% and fall on our knees from time to time. Thank you for accepting our apology. Management Iles Des Palmes

We did book this resort, half board, from 17/03/2020 until 27/03/2020. However due to COVID-19 we were forced to leave this resort earlier on 22/03/2020, so we didn't spent 5 already paid days. Resort is very nice, with beautiful garden, well maintained and giant turtles. Access to the beach is easy and it is covered with trees, building nice relaxing shadow. Chalets are nice with sea view and terrace. Rooms inside are OK, with little fridge, nice big bathroom. A/C was pretending to work as it is absolutely small size, irrelevant for this size of the room. Fortunately in the night, as outside temperature went down, the sleeping was quite OK. In general inside temperature = outside temperature. Sri Lankan staff was very friendly and helpful, probably as we were last couple who didn't left the island earlier. Chef was great, cooking what we had on our mind, forgetting about the menu from the card. Swimming pool was relatively clean, but the water temperature was reaching about 39 degC. The whole resort is placed in a very quiet area, no other restaurants or groceries around, but the local public bus is stopping just in front of the main gate. As CORONA-19 was misinterpreted many times, what local government and airlines will do in that days, we decided to leave the resort earlier and asked the resort to refund us for the remaining 5 days. They refused telling us, it is not in their cancellation policy. It was very bitter feeling.

Thanks for the review. Sorry for the bitter feeling. Our policy is simple : guest book a stay, and pay for the stay . If they cancel a period of the stay, they loose the days paid. Why? Generally guest tend to change travel plans for many reasons. But being a multiple island destination , it makes booking a room in Seychelles a challenging business plan For operators. So we adhere to a strict policy. Corona virus -19 has had a daunting impact on Europe and Seychelles. Our economy is now shut down. There are no planes to Seychelles for now, all hotels are closed though the virus has had virtually no impact directly on the islands. We have 10 cases in the whole country and the health authorities have done an excellent job at quarantine and contact tracing . Jack Ma has donated 20,000 test kits to test 1/3 of the population. Seychelles will bounce back in no time as it remains the most sought after destination in the world. As an appeasement to your grievance please accept a four day stay with us on your return free room and half board . Kindly contact the reception and advise them of details they will send you a gift certificate . Kind regards, Management

Thank you for an excellent valued review. Our staff are all on hand to deliver the best possible service and scrumptious meals to you. Our design concept was to provide large spacious distance from rooms. Hence we have incorporated social distancing in our individual bungalow unit concepts . Each unit stands separately from the neighbor, no one below you, no one above you, no one to the sides except perhaps 10 meters away in most cases.

The staff at the Iles Des Palmes were super. They could not have been more helpful. The accommodation was very nice - clean and well kept. The restaurant staff were attentive especially Piyal and Mahesh. The food was good with chef Ruwan and Jagath running the kitchen.

Thank you for a super review. Resto staff are highly attentive and professional. Our kitchen is perhaps one of the smartest kitchens in Seychelles. We limit our table service in the evening to 10 tables in order to give guests the required, and expected attention to detail. During lunch service we expand out to 25 tables on demand for creole buffet. When buffets are not on line, we do offer pool side a la carte meal services daily and it is a great combination for families, w kids, or couples taking time out. Thank you again for a super review.

Amit was really friendly,helpful and professional. His hospitality was excellent. My husband was sick after the ferry ride and he welcomed us with a lemongrass drink which really helped my husband to get over the sickness. The breakfast was good with lot of choices. There's a onsite restaurant which served nice seafood. I wouldn't say the property is 4* though, but it has all the facilities you would need for a relaxing vacation. The property is in amidst of the nature so you will wake in the fresh greenery. You can see lot of crabs, lizard and gekos, so be careful in case you're scared of them like me :)
