“Awesome B&B found!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Hi all,

If you are looking for a great B&B this is it. Friendly, helpful, 'centrally' located this place
is good value for money, meaning you don't pay for things you don't need. Price was perfect, not too much, not too little.
The breakfast is also interesting with lots of different island fruits. The beach is 10 meters from the front door, which for me was awesome, I could just walk out straight into the warm water! There is small shop (1 min walk away), which is great if you feel like sweets, chocolates, beer, biscuits...etc. About 15 min walk, or 5 min drive away is a small beach in Anse Royale. It is fairly popular, with a lot of different tropical fish. I saw about 20 different species the one day.
Opposite is a bus pick up point, which will take you all the way to Victoria for only SR5! (~USD 0.40c)
The atmosphere is a friend making one, it's not like a hotel where you check in, and leave without saying goodbye.
I had a super time.

Many thanks to Zack and his friendly staff.

Room Tip: rooms have either a sea view (sunrise) or mountain (forest) view. top floor rooms have high ceiling...

We've had a lovely time. The location is really nice, with the ocean right outside your window. The room are confy and clean. All the staff, starting from the manager Zack, is really warm and helpful without being intrusive. Breakfast is great as well, with a special metion for the homemade jam. Strongly recommended.

Villa Dorado is very nice place. When i considered in brochure, it seemed a nice place. But on arrival was pleasantly surprised by the fact that the villa was more beautiful than at the picture.We lived on the second floor and every day observed a fine view of the ocean and a wild beach. On villa it is very pure, on a site there is a lot of greens and a beautiful landscape. Manager is very friendly and sociable person and cooks delicious;) Generally the impression of living on villa remained very good!
