This was my second visit to Hotel L'Archipel - I enjoyed my stay so much last year that I decided to come back! The hotel has everything one could want: good-size bedrooms with beautiful views, good food, its own private beach and swimming pool, and - very importantly - staff who, in their entirety, are very polite, friendly and helpful,...

This hotel looks OK, room is OK, has nice private beach. Apart from these positive things, it was the worst place we stayed in Seychelles. The reception staff is extremely bad. They hardly greeted us or gave us any advice. The lady called Christy who was a receptionist on July 11 when we were checking out made extremely rude comment... More

Nice and pleasant welcome, very friendly staff (especially Nelson and Pierre), nice restaurant with live music, quite and peaceful beach, good breakfast (fresh local fruits and great pancakes), better than most 4-star hotels here. Absolutely recommended.

So pleased we found this place on our search for lunch. The place is secluded quiet and perfect for couples. The staff are friendly and will go the extra mile for client satisfaction.

Recently stayed five nights at L'Archipel and secretly wished it had been longer. We arrived and were warmly greeted and given a cool drink. We were then shown to our rooms.

Ate at hotel Archipel and have to say by far they are one of the best hotel in term of service and value for money. Nice view and idyllic location. The food was of good taste though efforts are needed on the presentation. The servers are absolutely kind and available with their smile.

We stayed here for our second week on Praline . The first impression is important and our warm welcome lasted all week and so did the hospitality. The food was full of imagination and delicious .

Location is great. The rooms might need renovation but it is sufficient. The food is very good at the restaurant. The service is fine. However, WiFi is unstable and only for free in the restaurant and by the swimming pool. The I find the paid WiFi extremely expensive (SCR 200 per day) for what it's worth.

Thank you for this review. I am forever intrigued how different reviews can be from clients staying at our hotel at the very same time.
