“Nice and well maintained place”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

we stayed here for just one night in December before the villa for the rest of our stay was available. The chalets are in takamaka in a relatively 'remote' location, away from the main road in a very quiet area. All around you is lush tropical vegetation. The beach is not very close. But the plus is they have small pool where you can take a dip to cool off- more like a plunge pool- something not a lot of selfcatering villas in Seychelles have.

There is one relatively well stocked supermarket at walking distance from the chalets. The nearest good restaurant is Surfers. Right opposite the chalets there is a restaurant called 'Le reduit'. But it looked quite dead and deserted when we were there.

Other than the location it is nice place.

This self catering hotel has only 4 to 6 very well appointed units, which consist of a huge bedroom, fully equiped kitchen, living room (in some units associated with the kitchen) and modern bathroom with well functioning shower and fluffy bathtowles. Each unit has a terrace with a table and sunbeds. Beachtowels are provided. If you are lucky (or booked it) you may even have a whole 3 bedroom bungalow for yorself (we were lucky!).
A delicious breakfast is served either at the common terrace or at your own private one, consisting of eggs of choice, croissants, Danish pastry y or muffins and a huge platter with fresh fruit.
If you don't want to cook yourself (like we did) there are at least two highly recommendable restaurants in walking distance:" Le Reduit", 50 m from the hotel serves fresh and tasty curries and seafood and "Chez Batista" at beautiful Takamakka beach (15-20 min. walk). Due to the remoteness of the hotel and not located directly at the beach (which we found was no disadvantage at all, even if you do not have a car) prices here are affordable. If you stay longer than 1 or 2 days a rental car is however recommented (unless you don't mind going to the same beach all the time).
The Seychellois hotel manager Patrick and his wife Sandra are very nice and helpful people; we even got a late check-out.

It is a self catering accommodation with spacious but plane apartments in tin- roofed buildings far from everything, in a mountainious surrounding without view. The so-called swimming pool is a larger bathtub 2x3m and the small grounds are very uncharming. We had booked 4nights,but were disappointed to the point of leaving after one night. The manager made us pay the 4 nights: understandable, but not generous.
