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".
