Reviewed December 11, 2010

As already mentioned in another review: this place is basically at the very end of the Western Road on Praslin. You will not be able to get anywhere from here if you don't have a car. Yes, this place is quite remote, but that also makes it quite quiet. Guests stay in a number of relatively large cottages, each of them split in halves. There is a nice restaurant on the grounds, and it has direct access to a (very small) beach. Each cottage half is equipped with a large fridge, and a proper kitchen (i.e. 2 electrical stove tops, sink, pans and pots, etc.) so you can actually cook smaller meals (but don't go overboard, stuff is pretty shonky by Western standards).

The negative things:
- There are no mosquito nets, neither over your bed or on the window frames. If you don't have tropical strengths mozzie spray, you'll be eaten alive over night.
- You have to pay an extra 10 Euros (!!!) to use the air-conditioning, per day! And the ceiling fans won't get you far in the heat.
- The adjacent beach is tiny, rough, and the water is quite muggy as a result. There are a thousand places on this island that have better beaches, so don't rely on this one.
- All cottages are split in halves, and house two apartments. Unfortunately, there is no noise insulation whatsoever. We had a crying baby next to us that made it impossible to sleep before it decided to not scream anymore...
- All the really nice beaches are on the other side of the island - so you will always have to cross the island to get to them (about 30 minutes drive).

Now the positive things
- The cottages you are in are very spacious. They can easily house 4 people without stepping on each other's toes. The bathroom is very spacious, and it has a bit of a living room area, combined with the kitchen.
- For the standards on the Seychelles, the service was good, and the breakfast was delicious.
- Beach towels are readily available, and you can take them out for a day or two.
- There is a small shop literally next door to the guest house. You can at least get some bottled water and other small items there, which is handy in a country where you shouldn't drink tap water.
- The adjacent restaurant looked very nice, and seemed quite popular: every evening, there were way more customers in there than could have stayed in the cottages. We weren't so keen on seafood, and the restaurant really only had one non-seafood dish, so we didn't actually eat there.
- Perfect to watch the sun set.

Conclusion:
If you are planning on hiring a car, and you get a good offer for this place, you might as well take it. It won't blow your mind, but it's also not bad. If I went back to Praslin, I would probably rather pay a little bit more and go into something a bit more luxurious. a little less off the beaten track. Service was friendly and good though, and considering some of the other places we stayed in on the Seychelles, at least this one was clean and spacious.
