“The "Paradise" Hotel in Praslin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

Hotel Paradise Sun, Praslin, Seychelles

This hotel is awesome. I've stayed there 9 nights and all I have to say is positive.
The rating that you can find in this website and in many other is ACCURATE! It measures the real quality of the hotel.

a) The Hotel Room Quality: 10/10

The hotel rooms are very clean, elagant and spacious. The bathroom is superb and spacious also.
The air conditioned works flawlessly. Every day the hotel staff cleans the room/bathroom and you'll find the room as clean as like the first day you arrive! Top!
All the rooms of the hotel are near the beach and it's very easy to move around the resort.

b) The Hotel Lunch and Dinner: 10/10

We stayed in Half-Board basis and it's the best option.
Regarding the lunch you have lot's of options and all the food is fresh and well prepared. As example, you can eat a pizza for 125 SCR (+- 7 euros) that is OK for 2 persons. The prices for the meals are low and fair.
Regarding the dinner, you have a very nice selection of cold salads. You'll have sea food, fish and meat options to choose from. All the food with an excelent taste, fresh and well prepared. The deserts are TOP!! Really!! Lot's of deserts and the options changing every day.
During the dinner you can wear informal and conformatble cloths. They don't impose any strict dressing code. That's a PLUS since we're in vacations.
I need to give a 10/10 for the food!

c) The Hotel Beach and Ocean Water: 10/10

In Praslin Island there are some very good and well known beaches to visit. But, it's allways good to have one good beach in hand in the hotel. It's the case of Anse Volvert and Paradise Sun: This hotel has an excelent front beach and EXCELENT snorkel spots minutes away.
The Paradise Sun hotel beach has very calm waters safe for a relaxed swim, specially if you have kids. You can walk several hundred meters with sand below your feets.
The beach sand is white and clean with lot's of sea shells to discover. :) You can walk safely around the beach and it's not crowded.

d) The Hotel Pool: 10/10

Since the hotel has such a nice beach, I was only twice in the swimming pool and it's excelent! Clean and treated water, fresh water shower near, swimming pool for kids. All ok!
Confortable sun chairs nearby also.

e) The Hotel Location and Facilities: 10/10

My wife tested the SPA and the SPA is very good. They offer nice discounts during lunch time that you can take advantage. They offer a nice range of body treatments. all the SPA staff is friendly and competent.
Other point is that if you need to buy water, shampoo, or some product that by any chance you missed to pack in the bag you can find small supermarkets nearby with fair prices. You can go by walking in a 4 minutes walk.
Around the hotel you'll have nice (and expensive) restaurants to try. One example is Café Des Arts where you can have an excelent dinner or lunch.
Close to the hotel you'll find 2 water sports shops where you can rent any kind of equipment for almost any kind of water sport/recrational activity. They are very professional guys and they will assist you very well.
The hotel offers a sunset catamaran trip for the guests, every Wednesday, that will take you to some nice spots where you'll be able to snorkel and take a swim.
At the resort entrance you have a bus stop: If you decide to visit the Praslin beaches/Val de Mai without any arranged trip you're more than ok! It's not dangerous and you can rely on the Bus to take you almost anywhere.
The Praslin local people is friendly and kind. You don't feel any danger moving around.

f) The Hotel Staff / Management Team: 10/10

I found that the Hotel Staff is kind and friendly. The Hotel Management Team is even more friendly, competent and professional. Why? Here's why:
I'm detailing this because I had a trouble with an hotel in Mahé and I needed to get out of that Mahé hotel (the hotel was under construction and was a "nightmare"). The management staff of Paradise Sun helped me and they were able to accept me back.
At return, I felt that I was returning to "Paradise".

Cheers!
Luis Santos

Room Tip: I've tried 2 rooms and both were awesome! You can rely in a "blind" pick!! Trust me!

This is an absolutely great hotel and the people are extremely friendly and will go all out of their way to assist you.Food was excellent, drinks a bit pricy - but that is to be expected.

Dear Phillipe and team

We would once again like to thank you and your team for the excellent manner you accommodated all of us at Paradise Sun. Jacques and myself visited Paradise Sun on a previous occassion during November 2010 and were really "hooked" on the hotel. We love the tranquility of the garden, beach restaurant and casual dress code, friendliness of the staff, air condtioned rooms, good beds and bedding, spa facilities and so much more and therefore thought it good to to celebrate Jacques 60th birthday in April 2012 at Paradise Sun. We envited 20 friends and it was a first for all of them at Paradise Sun, Seychelles. Memories of Jacques's 60th birthday at Paradise Sun will surely accompany all of us for a very long time - what a perfect holiday. You can surely expect another visit from all of us.

Room Tip: Our rooms were situated on the south end which we found nice and quiet.

My Husband and I went on Holidays to Seychelles and stayed at beautifully situated the PARADISE SUN HOTEL, PRASLIN,

On that note we must say that the welcome from the hotel staff was excellent, very friendly, and always ready to help, our room was always kept required standard,

We had a fantastic time, the weather was hot which we were looking for, and the service from the entire hotel was very good together with the relaxed ambiance,

The theme for both, the daily breakfast and the evening meals at the sandy restaurant were excellent, the food was mouth watering delicious, especially the vegetarian food, seemed that the food was cooked with extreme care which I would highly recommend,

Paradise Sun is a good base for exploring the most stunning beaches and island hopping, diving and snorkeling, sandy beach and the clear water made our stay more attractive, would like to visit the Hotel again,

We went to La Digue and that experience was exceptional, we had the best opportunity to ride a bike across the island and visited some eye-catching beaches, and we also had other very pleasant excursions and local outings in PRASLIN as well,

We have and we will definitely recommend the PARADISE SUN HOTEL to all our friends and family,

I am currently at the Paradise Sun and what a splendid holiday it has been. The weather is beautiful although hot and humid but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The hotel is fairly full but service is always up to standard. Staff from check in to the waiters, housekeeping etc are all efficient and friendly but not overbearing.

The food selection on half board has been good and evening meals are a treat. Drinks however are a bit on the expensive side but this seems to be the norm in the hotel industry.

Paradise Sun is a good base for exploring the most stunning beaches and island hopping, diving and snorkeling excursions.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life....

We stayed here for one week during july 2011.
The whole area of the hotel is very pretty with alot of plants and so on.
Food is great, alot of choice and alot of choice, everyone should find something.
most of the guets are italians for those who are interested in it.
The service needs some improvement, eg the guy responsible for snorkling equipment could not speak english.. The rooms are cleaned sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the evening, and we had to ask for new towels 2 times.
i would recommend to book the tours independantly since they are far roo expensive organised from the hotel, and the snorkling trip was very unpleasant. A lot of waves, some beginners, and the guide just left pretty everyone on its own. in other hotels instayed tehy cancelled the trip, for good, in those conditions.
The location is pretty good, within a 10min ride you reach the port, valle du mai and the citycenter.
All in all we were comfortable at the hotel and would recommend it to other guests, since price value is absolutely top!

the beach in front is the best ever,- clear warm waters ,white sandy beach
the accomodation is excellent and comfy
the service is very good
the ambiance is exceptional
the breakfast buffet is very good
the themed dinner was excellent
the meals r at their restaurant which is at the waters'edge- very casual nd no need to dress up- sandy floor
afternoon tea with cake is complimentary but basic which is ok
dont really need lunch
prices are reasonable
can go on island visits from there- which r close
we went to La dique and Cocoa island for snorelling
enjoyed the creale nite with dances in the garden over a bonfire

not much to see in Mahe island, rather spend the day at th hotel
Time flies coz before u know it the weeks up

take a short plane ride from Mahe to Praslin airports as it sanes time instead of taking the ferry
loved it
