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.
