Good food, even if the prices are a little high for tourist outside the resort. They have outside pool very nice. But the beach in front of the resort is not so great. Grande Anse is not one of the greatest beaches in Praslin.

Stayed for one night with my son. The staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. They went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and were always available. This is one hotel which offers a taste of the friendly warm nature of the Creole people and of course the excellent local cuisine is to die for. Thank you everyone... More

Stayed here over night when visiting Praslin Island. Absoutely nice beach only some meters from the rooms - you can choose between pool and sea. My room was in the second floor and I had a nice view to the sea. Service was very good in reception and in restaurant. I had a very tasty dinner while looking at the... More

We stayed for just one night in our stop at Praslin. The hotel is nice, not luxury but service is very good! The didn't have a triple room as reserved and they provided two rooms instead. The pool area is very nice. Breakfast is probably the low point, it could be improved with little effort. We would go back, especially... More

Great value and service. It isn't on one of the "most beautiful" beaches but the beach is very pretty nonetheless. The room was lovely. The food is good. Free parking and very helpful staff. I don't have a negative thing to say about this property. It was so nice to wake up every morning and hear the waves outside. Highly... More

We had the buffet here and the food was divine! Beautiful view, the staff seem very courteous and friendly, and it overall looks like it would be a nice hotel to stay at. The adjoining beach seems to be so so.

Hotel is around 3Km from the airport and 5Km from the jetty and has the advantage of being close to both. The hotel directly resides on the Grand' Anse beach. Its one of the calmest beaches around the area and is absolutely clean and white. The rooms are spacious and warm. With your own personal outdoor seating area. Most of... More

The rooms were a great size with all amenities required. The pool and jacuzzi were a good size surrounded by a lovely decking right on the edge of the beach! The staff were friendly and welcoming and more than happy to help out with anything. Food served was also of a very high standard and all round a fantastic stay!... More
