We spent around a week there in April and tested two flats (both perfect!). Very clean, comfortable and well equipped, quiet, and with very good breakfast. Located at 5min walk to beach and to good restaurants, it was ideally situated.
The most important thing we appreciated was the kindness of the team!! Extremely nice and helpful!
We fully recommend Hanneman! And will return again!

Room Tip: all rooms are good!!

We had a wonderful stay here. It was friendly, elegant and extremely comfortable with excellent service. We were welcomed with fresh orange juice and cold flannels. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed as well as fully equipped with everything you might need. The staff are wonderful; helpful and friendly. The breakfasts are great with a whole host of tropical fruits to delight your palate. We loved staying there and would happily return again.

We travelled here in April with our 5 year old son and had a fabulous stay. The hotel is lovely, with friendly and helpful staff, spacious clean rooms and a fantastic pool. We would definitely return. Our son loved the pool which we swam in every evening, we had the pool to ourselves.
We also found breakfast to be excellent, with pancakes, plenty of fruit and a choice of cooked breakfast. It is easy to get around, there is a bus stop a few minutes walk away and places to eat and drink, shops etc where you can stock up on drinks, snacks etc. A great choice if you like some independence.

Our last stay was on Mahe - as we wanted to explore Mahe and staying on beach was not our priority, we were looking for reasonable accommodation based on reviews - and I have to confirm that Hanneman is really a great choice ! Rooms are very well equiped, clean and you really feel like at home. Residence is in very quite place and we were not disturbed by outside traffic. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Generally I have no negatives to mention - for the money we paid it was worth and I would highly recommend it to anybody, who wants explore Mahe.

This is a slightly difficult review to write because while I found the Hanneman resort nice, overall I thought the Seychelles were just so-so, especially when traveling with small children. If you are on your honeymoon or kid free, you will enjoy it much more. If you are coming to the Seychelles, be sure to pack your own alcohol! I was very glad we brought our own wine and champaign when 750ml of rum can cost $45.
As for the resort, it was clean, spacious, and served us well. The kitchen is fully equipped - dishwasher, full sized fridge and freezer, stove with oven, etc. The starter kit of food was welcome. Milk, bread, eggs, jam, butter and yogurt. My only complaint about the kitchen was that they did not have a pitcher, which would have been nice to make juice, Kool-Aid, lemon aid, etc.
The bedrooms were nice, lots of space for storage. Both bedrooms had safes. The beds were VERY firm. I was ok with it, but it hurt my husband's back. They were kind enough to provide "baby cots" (essentially pack and plays) for my twins. They also provided highchairs and a baby bath, which we didn't need, but were a nice touch. Only the bedrooms have AC. That means the downstairs can be quite warm, but we left everything running and the doors open so it would be tolerable downstairs when we needed a reprieve from the heat outside (it was hotter there than I expected.) Note: if you are going to do this, tell the staff. Otherwise they will turn off the AC and open the place up, making it quite hot and stuffy.
We sprung for the grilled lobster dinner one night poolside and that was well done. The chef, Michele, is skilled and very friendly. They even added a large helping of grilled fish that had a wonderful ginger coating. Overall, the staff at the resort are what make the place so great. The owner, Manfreid, and all the rest are very kind and really go out of their way to assist you however they can. They even dropped off crepes and carrot cake for us every morning with no charge! It was a wonderful treat.
The pool is warm and filled, I believe, with sea water given how salty it was. It's not a huge pool, but quite ample for the family. My boys had a wonderful time playing there. Note: there is no shallow end. The entire pool is 1.5 meters deep.
The resort says they are 5 min from the beach, but it is not the nicest section of that particular beach, and 5 min is if you are going at good hike. Expect anywhere from a 10 -20 min walk to the nicer part, in the heat, if walking with little ones. 10 min for adults. Also, there is no sidewalk or shoulder on the roads, so you must be very careful!!! Especially when with little ones. The Seychelles is NOT stroller friendly. I was glad we didn't bring ours. Also, no street lights to be sure to pack your flashlight! Hanneman will lend you one, as well as a safety reflective jacket, if you are going out at night. We ended up renting a car given the difficulty of walking and not wanting to wait for the bus for 45 min (it can happen when you get on the wrong one we learned the hard way). It's just so much easier to see the island and get where you want with the car. Hanneman can call and get you the car and have it delivered. Again, great service. We were glad we did this. If you are thinking of taxiing, it will only take one trip to equal the daily cost for a small car, so just get the car and enjoy the freedom! Buses are cheap, but pretty full and watch the numbers so you get on the right one!
There are a few restaurants within walking distance, but not many. We ate at Baobab pizza several times as it was one of the few decently priced places, even though the service wasn't great. Also, it was one of the few places open Easter weekend when we were there. I did like their pizza and the fish and chips.
My only "complaints" about this place are that I found the living room furniture quite uncomfortable (thin pads on top of hardwood), the hubby didn't like the beds, there was no DVD player (you had to rent it at an expensive rate and I know, there is lots to do, but when you have sick twins, sometimes you just want to be able to put in a movie!), several of the TV stations they claimed they received did not come through, and no lower-level AC. Otherwise, the service was excellent, it had everything we needed and was overall a well equipped place in terms of amenities. I would (and already have) recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: If traveling with wee ones, take the duplex model and not the penthouse for easier access.

Thanks Hubert for enhancing our holiday experience at Mahe!

Hanneman was THE Find of our entire honeymoon! Hubert, the owner and manager, was extremely professional right from the moment we sent him an e-mail enquiring about the serviced apartments.

On arrival, Hubert and his lovely team welcomed us with refreshing fresh juice and cold towels. Understanding how constrained we were for time in Mahe, Hubert immediately acquainted us with the Mahe map, what to look out for and the best way to go about our 2 days on the island. When we requested Hubert to recommend car rental companies, Hubert took the entire initiative of organizing a car rental for us within 10 minutes of our request! Even when we needed help with forex/fell temporarily short of Seychelles Rupees, Hubert was forthcoming and agreed to loan us the money till the time we checked out. We couldn't ask for more from him, he treated us with warmth and immediately made us feel welcome.

The property itself is wonderfully situated near the gorgeous Beau Vallon beach (just a 5 mins drive from the apartments). We found plenty of eating options around the beach and found the beach ideal for sun bathing, beach sports and random mucking about in the water. All Hanneman residents could also enjoy free non-motorized water sports at the beach. The property is also very well secured with 24 hour security.

The apartments at Hanneman are fantastic! Ours was a duplex, 2 bedroom, pool facing apartment. Decorated aesthetically and equipped with all the latest amenities and gadgets, there's nothing more you could ask for! The kitchen is also fully furnished with all the necessary appliances and utensils. The apartments strike the perfect balance of design and comfort.

We were gifted a complimentary basket of fresh tropical fruits, as a welcome gesture to the honeymooning couple! And this brings me to breakfast! A spread of breads, waffles, fresh juice, pancakes, eggs deliciously done as per request, fresh fruits and beverages... we were spoilt for choice and completely stuffed!

We highly recommend Hanneman Holiday Residences to all people traveling to Seychelles. It is the quintessential holiday home!
