“best value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2010

My wife and I stayed at Black Parrot for a week. After staying at two other resorts on Cerf island and another one on Praslin, both more expensive, we came to the conclusion that the Black Parrot is by far the best deal on any island in the Seychelles. Definitely not a "Butlins" nor a snooty pretentious place but a great value on an over priced destination. The staff was always charming {the manager perhaps a little too chatty} the place clean, rooms modern, I very strongly recommend spending the extra money for room 504 because of the stunning view, private pool, spacious size, and after all, its a once in a lifetime experience. The only thing to pay attention to is, the taxi drivers the front desk sends out charge according to what they can get out of you, if you go up to the gate the passing taxi drivers charge the honest rates.

I stayed here at in the black parrot rooms in Novemeber with my partner and had a great experience.

We were warmly welcomed at reception and had the fun experience of being taken up to our rooms, a short walk away, by golf cart - we thought it might not manage the hill - but we arrived safely! The rooms are stunning with all the mod cons; aircon; beautiful shower room and comfy bed with a balcony to enjoy our cocktails. There is a lovely decked area with small plunge pool-which I have to admit I didn't use because in seychelles I prefer to go to the beach-but its a stunning place to watch the sunset (if I remember correctly) and to enjoy a few drinks! With your own bar for these slightly more upmarket rooms, you're rather spoilt. The service while we stayed was exceptional - I forget her name now but the lady who looked after us up at black parrott was soooo helpful, polite and friendly - she was a breath of fresh air and really made our visit special!
As for the food...well you could not be disappointed with the CHOICE! They have a different theme each night which is great esp if you fancy a change...sooo many chefs...so much food...buffet style but yet still attentive service at the tables for drinks! A real treat!

Then the nightlife...well with a selection of bars...and different activities in the evening..it great. We enjoyed some traditional seychellois dancing which was great as all the staff from the restaurant came through and appeared to be really enjoying themselves, encouraging as many guests as poss to join in!

The only thing that surprised me was that this is a large hotel...the restaurant is big! But then if you wanted a quiet drink or meal there were other places within the hotel complex that you could go...

Overall a brill few days!

My family and I stayed at Coco de Mer for 6 days over Christmas 2009. We had a great time there. We stayed at the main hotel (not the Suites - as No Children) are allowed. The room was big, airy, clean, all you really need. Food was fantastic, the evening buffets always had plenty to offer. What gives this hotel a big thumbs up is the staff - nothing was ever a problem! We really had a fantastic time there.

We stayed at the Black Parrot for the first week of our honeymoon/wedding. Our families joined us and stayed in the Coco de Mer. Both parts of the resort were amazing. We were able to go back to the Black Parrot to have time to ourselves and enjoy the lovely pool which we had to ourselves most of the time, or spend time with our family in the main part of the resort.

The staff were amazing and made our wedding the most beautiful it could possibly be. They made us all feel like kings and queens for the week. The wedding coordinator, Pip, organised everything possible for us and we had a no stress wedding! So much so, that we were in the pool until lunchtime and got married in the afternoon!

The food was great. My sister-in-law doesn't like fish, and there were still plenty of options for her every night. Definitely choose half board.

In my opinion, Praslin is more beautiful than Mahe and there are lots more things to do if that's your thing - especially if you like beautiful scenery and animals.

I would definitely recommend this hotel, and we've already started saving to go back!

We spent a week at the Black Parrot in October this year. We were there for the first part of our honeymoon and loved it. The staff in the suites area were so helpful, and really showed the Creole lifestyle very well. The hotel itself has lovely rooms, and we felt completely secluded. The small pool for the suites area isn't much for swimming, but is perfect if you want a relaxing dip in the pool. The only thing I would have liked would have been the option to have a snack or something poolside. I understand that they got rid of the kitchen as it created too much noise, but the need to go up and down for all meals was a bit painful. All in all, we loved our time there.
