“Great option on Seychelles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Let me start off with the info that the rating is done against competition on the island, not vs hotels average from cost perspective.

As for the price, it's lower than the average and you do get a similar, if not better experience due to the "boutique" like nature of the place. The superior rooms we had a spaciuos, we had no issue in staying with two kids <5 years on spot. The tub in the room, private terrace, hammock, sun beds was great. The place does have small, but very nice beaches so ignore what lonelyplanet is saying. The pool is clean and just right to have a swim or short family fun in the water. We did not use, but the hotel provided free buses to the best beach on Praslin (Anse Lazio). Breakfast was really good, dinners even better. The lunch options very well priced, you do not get ripped off by the bar etc. The free kayaks are nice (not the 10euro we heard all across Seychelles). The pier to the 2nd beach was also nice. The trek to the mountains (also free) is worth the 1-2 hours. The views are really great.

Finally, the places if flooded with nice, smiling people. They really seem happy. Either amazing training or simply the work atmosphere(income) is good.

To sum up, one of the best options on the Island (cost wise almost certain having spoken to some local people and returning tourist). 5/5 on Praslin, but can't be compared to Asian hotels as they simply provide even more these days for half the price (or even more)


If anything, it would be better to have dinners start earlier than 19 (especially if your are with kids). Also we were surpirsed we had to pay for an alternative dish for the kids, as we were informed no additional cost will be added.

Room Tip: Take the dinners if you eat late. Otherwise one can do with the lunch or restaureant menu options.

Just got back from the Seychelles. We did 2 nights at the Coco de mer and it was fantastic from the minute we pulled up to the hotel. We were met by Gavin who was lovely all the staff are a credit to the hotel. They were all pleasant helpful and attentive. One staff member Robert brought his own phone charger in for us to borrow as we had forgotten ours. The food was fantastic breakfast lunch and dinner. The free shuttle to anse lazio is a must, it is paradise. There isn't anywhere you can walk to from the hotel and I would recommend car hire staying anywhere in the Seychelles as they drive on the same side as we do and it was so easy to get around the island. The hotel staff provided us with a map and things we could do and places to visit, like la digue. Which is another must. I would highly recommend coco de mer if your visiting Praslin.

We spent the second leg of our honeymoon at Coco de Mer - Black Parrot Suites on Praslin Island.

The staff were impeccable in all aspects -helpfulness -friendliness -kindness -professionalism.

From the moment we arrived we felt the care that the staff puts into their work at the Coco de Mer. Upon arrival we were briefed very well by one of the managers, Gavin, whom from that time made himself available to help us with anything at all.

The breakfasts and dinners, which were served in the main area of Coco de Mer, were fantastic. For the three nights and four days that we were there, we eagerly awaited the new themes of cuisine each day. Five stars for the food.

The Black Parrots Suites is out of this world. Our room (no. 3) had a magnificent view of the small bay adjacent to the hotel. We watched the sky come alive each night as the setting sun painted it with colours we had prior only ever seen on post cards and in books. And we watched this all from our balcony. Unforgettable. Each night, the local bats (with a 1 metre wingspan) would swoop past the balconies in search of ripe fruit. They are truly amazing to watch.

The pool area is exquisite and do go along for an hour or two at the nearby spa. Pure bliss it was. Worth every minute of it.

One can also take out kayaks at no charge down by the water. Bikes are also for rent. All of the activities are run by the hotel. We had a great man by the name of Joseph whom was a pleasure to deal with at all times. He also took us on a nature walk up the mountain one morning. It is a fantastic way to learn about the island and Seychelles in general.

The hotel also organised a trip to Anse Lazio beach one day. We recommend this. It's one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

The restaurant comes highly recommended. We mostly had light sandwiches and fish but all were of the highest quality.

If you are interested in taking the local bus to places on the island, you'll be pleased to know that it does come by the hotel. Just inquire at the front desk for a timetable and the staff will be more than happy to assist you with going and return times of the buses.

The billing of our account was done so well and there were no problems of any kind upon checkout. Smooth and simple. Despite leaving before sunrise to go to the airport, the hotel still prepared, packed and delivered our breakfasts to us the previous night so that we had something to eat that morning.

It was an unforgettable stay with many fond memories. Many thanks to the staff and management at Coco de Mer.

Room Tip: No. 3 (503) - Black Parrot Suites

We were lucky to stay in a Black Parrot suite, with views over the sea. Worth paying the extra for the private pool and sun bed area, which was empty most of the time. The food was excellent and in many cases made to order. Great variety of food. Staff were all excellent and very attentive. Worth doing the free nature walk and try out a kayak or bike. There is also a free bus to Anse Lazzio beach which allows you to see some of the island.

Room Tip: Go for Black Parrot

It's very good hotel with very cosy rooms and territory. The hotel has private beach, but if you want to see other beaches or islands, very friendly staff will help you to organize everything for reasonable price. The staff are sincerely interested in your wishes and mood: Richi and Philip helped us to have 9 unforgettable days on Seychelles! We also had a great wedding at the hotel. Coco de Mer hotel is really best practice to have great holidays! we will come again on our anniversary in a few years! Many thanks to all staff! Anton & Marina

The Coco de Mer and the Black Parrot Suites was wonderfull place to stay on the Island of Praslin. We booked a bed and breakfast room from an agent specializing in the Seychelles

The breakfasts were buffets with an array of foods to suit every international taste. The hotel was very clean and well appointed. The beach was swept every day and the water calm and inviting. Snorkling from the Fisherman's Wharf was lovely with a variety of tropical fish.

The staff, especially Ricky, were very helpful. He kindly arranged a charter boat for us so we could go to the Island of Aride to see the endangered sea birds. This was after our agent on the island said it was too difficult to

There are a variety of things to do without leaving the resort some are free and some have charges. Do no miss taking the free shuttle to Anse Lazio one of the world's most beautiful beaches with gentle surf just right for playing in and body surfing. However, it only goes on MWF.

The evening buffet was very good and almost too plentiful. After one night at the rather expensive buffet we ate at the A la Carte restaurant which was good and less expensive than the buffett. You have to reserve a table by 10:00 am.

Our time at the Coco de Mer was relaxing and fun. We were well taken care of by all the staff and Ricky went above and beyond the normal. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Room Tip: We stayed in a suite at the Black Parrot Suites. We were upgraded to the end room with a sunken livi...

We stayed at Coco de Mer and from the minute we arrived we felt like we were the only guests, ot the most important. Our luggage was spirited away to our rooms while we sipped welcome cocktails in the reception lounge. Andrew, one of the managers was there to welcome us and fill us in on how everything works, what we could expect and what would be available. Our rrom was fantastic, with beautiful views. The service was excellent if you scored it out of 10 it would score 15! All our needs were anticpated (even those we didnt know we'll have:-)). It has a beautiful setting in a well kept gardening with a lovely pool. The meals - we were surprised by something new every day and the food was of a very high quality. The island is clean, the roads are good - very different to Mahe. Hiring a car is highly recommended. We used the hotel shuttle to Anse Lazio (WOW what a beach!) and when our car arrived we went right back there. We took a ferry to La Digue - great place. If you are going to Seychelles La Digue is a must! We hired bicycles and cycled around the island. The pictures don't lie!! What an amazing experience.
