“Very good, but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Really good location, but not the best. The beach is twenty meters across the road, but the sound of the ocean can be heard only at night when no cars drive.

The staff quite friendly, especially if from Mauritius.

Modern and bright rooms, but be prepared for the fact that Eddy too strongly suggest you "Upgrade" - move you into the old and run-down rooms. Well, if it does not spoil your mood from the guesthouse and recreation

I strongly recommend the excellent tour around the island under The Beatles songs with wonderful driver Marvin.

Stayed there for 6 days in August and we had a great time. Many thanks to Eddy for his kindness and help. Good location, very clean, very good breakfasts. The best reataurant ever La Pearl Noir ( good prices) and Kaz Zanana in Victoria-near to the bus stop ( only lunches). Worth to see Anse Major ( wear good shoes and avoid the flying fox which can bite you), Sunset beach, Port Launay.

Room Tip: we had big family room on the first floor ( number 4): 1 double bad, one single and 1 additional not...

After going all over the island whilst we were there we realised that by pure chance we had picked the best spot. Yes there are prettier beaches but none with bars and resteraunts. The guest house was very clean and comfortable with fridge coffee making facilities crockery cutlery and a microwave to use. The breakfast was good and the staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. I would certainly recommend it. The island overall though I do find very very expensive and cannot see that it warrants it.

Room Tip: The upstairs room no 4 is excellent

Me and my daughter stayed here on a diving holiday in December 2012. Eddy was most helpful and the breakfast service was great. We were on a diving trip and the room was spacious to cater for all the extra equipment we had.

Really a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room on the second floor. Enjoy your sun downer on the balcony, bliss!!!

We stayed in the room nº 4 (triple room with sea view). I am very satisfied with this guesthouse. Location is perfect - in front of Beau Vallon beach. The room was very spacious and clean.The guesthouse has all the facilities required for beach vacation, such as an external tap to clean your feet from sand, lines for drying clothes. The room has a nice large private terrace with a table and chairs - perfect spot for your evening glass of wine with ice cream. There are a lot of small shops and restaurants nearby. There is private parking. It is possible to book a car through the owners (our car was delivered to the jetty and returned in the guesthouse at no extra cost). Eddy is very friendly, informative and speaks perfect English (however, sometimes it is difficult to find him). Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with sea view on the second flow. Avoid 1st floor rooms - guests take breakfast on th...

In Oktober 2012 we (a senior couple) stayed 9 nights in Georgina's Beach Cottages. It is a nice guesthouse with a very friendly staff. We stayed in a nice and clean room with a fan and airco, coffee and tea facilities and, ...with a balcony at the front of the guesthouse where we sat at the end of the day drinking a beer we bought at Mike's Store (almost) next door. Also next door is a busstop, so it was very easy to take the bus to see a lot of the island. We had a very good time here, so we decided to go back for one last night after visiting the other islands Praslin and La Digue and before flying home again. Eddy picked us up from the jetty and brought us back to the airport the other day late in the evening. We could use our room until that time without paying extra. A very good service!

Georgina's is great if you wish to stay by Beau Vallon beach, but don't want to stay at an expensive hotel. Eddie the manager is friendly and helpful - he has been a dive instructor and can advise on diving locations other Seychelles. Breakfast is included with the room - eggs, toast, fruit, tea and coffee. The rooms are a decent size, have a nice design, and some have recently been refurbished. There is a bus stop right outside which is handy to get around Mahe.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the ones upstairs with balcony with vies to the beach.
