“best value in Seychelles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2010

We stayed at six places during our tour and paid between E110 and E150 B+B everywhere we went. Except this resort which charged only E80 self-catering for a villa
with its own garden and views of the bay. Fantastic value for money. It was spotlessly clean and there are plenty of little shops round about to but fresh rolls etc for breakfast.

The cafe restaurant on Anse Soleil beach is also good though we got very French "service with a snarl", not the smiley Seychellois hospitality one gets used to.

Stayed December 2010, traveled as a couple

We staid for two night at Anse soleil resort and found it very nice and quite, and very good value for money.

Location & arrival
- The resort is located on a small road going to Anse Soleil beach, located in the south western part of Mahe (the more quiet area). It is very remote so you do need a car to get there and get around during your stay.

Rooms
- Anse soleil resort provides self-catering accommodations. We stayed in the lower half of Kokosey, a fairly large villa. The accommodation consisted of one small bedroom, one very large bedroom (40-50 sqm), two bathrooms, a kitchen and two large terraces overlooking the sea. The villa and terraces felt very private and the location was really calm.
- Room comfort was good, just missing maybe a table indoors for dinners. Good air conditioning is available in the bedrooms.
- The website gives a very good picture of the rooms.

Activities
- You can walk or drive to Anse soleil beach. We took the car since it was so hot, but otherwise it would have been possible to walk. Anse soleil beach is lovely, not crowded at all, soft white sand and beautiful cliffs.
- The resort has its own pen with 6 giant tortoises. You can pet them and feed them leaves! Very cute!
- One nice touch: in the evening sunset over the sea, you will see fruit bats flying up from the lower forests up the hills.

Food
- Self catering in Seychelles proved more challenging than we believed. We first had difficulties finding the “supermarkets” we were pointed to, basically because the term seems to designate on Mahé some smaller shops with limited supplies. We couldn’t find any larger shop. Doing our shopping we ended up with Turkish pasta, Iranian tomato sauce, Chinese mushrooms, Egyptian cereals and… big surprise… Seychellois tuna. Selection is very limited so think of bringing your favourite ingredients from home. The best supermarket nearby that we found was in Anse la moûche.
- We had lunch at the beach café at Anse soleil beach. Very good fish dishes and not expensive, highly recommended!

Value for money
- The price/comfort is very good if you are ready to drive.

Overall impression
- We are animal lovers and appreciated the giant tortoises very much! We paid them several visits a day, and for us this was the great extra plus of the resort.
- The rooms are very nice and comfortable, with a great sea view.
- The nearby Anse soleil beach is lovely. Other nice beaches like Anse Louise, Anse la moûche etc. are also quite close, but you will need a car to get there.

We loved our stay at Anse Soleil Resort and stayed longer than planned. The family that run it are extremely kind and friendly and made us feel very welcome, providing us with tropical fruits from the garden to sample and introducing us to the resident giant tortoises! We requested the 'Kitouz' apartment as it was recommended in our guide book, it was a spacious 2 bedroom bungalow, very clean and comfortable. The only downside was that the kitchen wasn't completely closed off from outside so we had a few bugs, which are normal for a tropical paradise of course, but if we go back we would try one of the other apartments which looked a bit more cosy and could be closed off completely from the outside! We had a private little terrace with loungers and a great view over the bay. Its a pleasant 20 min hike down the road to Anse Soleil beach, which is absolutely stunning and was very uncrowded for us. Its a 10 min walk the other way for a little shop for basic food supplies and the bus that goes all around the island. It does feel quite remote but that means its extremely peaceful and relaxing. We would definitely recommend this place, amazing hospitality and we had an absolutely superb Seychelles experience.
