“Wonderful Holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Le Meriden Fisherman's cove is a gem of a hotel with a team of staff who will go over and above what is required to ensure your stay is perfect.
We had a lovely ocean view room which was incredibly quiet & comfortable. The view wasn't too bad either!
Although the pool area isn't overly large it was never busy during our stay despite the hotel running at full occupancy.
On the one occasion the restaurant was too busy to seat us immediately and given the fact we had a very early flight the next morning the on duty restaurant manager offered to cook us something to eat in the bar area.
Both Matthieu the General manager & Connor one of the Duty Managers were visible at some point of each day and took the time out to introduce themselves to their guests. This hands on approach means that if you have got a problem or question it was answered and resolved immediately.
On the whole the buffet food was good and the theme changed daily.
If we had one suggestion it would be to introduce a Happy Hour or two as the drinks in the Seychelles are very expensive.
We have always said we would never go back to any destination as there are so many places we hope to see but in the case of this hotel we may well be very tempted to return;)

This was our first trip to the Seychelles, and we were very pleased with our choice of hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, and this continued throughout our week there. The staff were without exception really friendly and helpful. We were delighted with our room which was clean, spacious, well equipped and had a beautiful view over the stunning gardens towards the ocean.
Despite the hotel undergoing some renovation work the facilities had been rearranged so that standards remained high and the hotel maintained its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.
The buffet meals offered a high standard of both local and international cuisine and we also enjoyed the a la carte dining in Le bourgeois restaurant.
The location was fantastic as we could either relax by the pool, or were only a few steps away from the beach from where we enjoyed snorkelling.
Overall we had a really enjoyable week and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing place to unwind In beautiful surroundings.

This is a really nice resort hotel on the biggest island (Mahe) looking out over the sea and with direct access to a golden beach. The island itself is very pretty.
The rooms in the hotel are nicely laid out and most have a very good view of the bay. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Fisherman's Cove is about 30 minutes drive from the airport and a 15 minute bus ride from the capital of the Seychelles Victoria. The number 21 bus stops just outside the hotel and the journey into Victoria is an experience not to be missed. The bus fare is 5 rupee (around 0.3 euro or 25 pence sterling).
On the downside prices in the Seychelles are not particularly cheap and this is especially true of Fisherman's Cove. So bring lots of money and a fat credit card.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights for the Easter vacation. It is a beautiful hotel with the most amazing view. Our villa had an incredible ocean view, imagin laying in bed and watching the ocean and waking up to the sounds of the ocean breeze. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the bedroom is very tropical and relaxing. The dinner buffet has different themes for every night, nothing fantastic about the food. The breakfast buffet is kinda boring as well. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping is not the most dedicated I must say, they do not pay attention to details, they do not really clean but pick around them.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visit this beautiful island.

We had a great time in this beautiful located hotel. The bungalows are nicely arranged in the large 'garden' and modern equipped (we got after some days even decaffeinated Illy coffee bags for the designer espresso machine).

We especially enjoyed snorkeling in the water just on the riff at the hotel and sighted sea turtles, eagle rays, moray eels, some puffer and box fishes and nice groups of other colorful fishes. Just swim straight towards the island of Silhoutte and the to the west...

We liked the morning buffet with great variety. If you ask for something special they tried to make it possible.

As we were on our honeymoon we got a wonderful candle light dinner in the small place at the end of the boardwalk surrounded by Sound of waves... Incredible service, great food and gorges setting...
on the beach you can walk to the other places in Beau Vallon, which is the most touristic beach on Mahe and the Seychelles we saw. But the hotel is at the far edge of the beach and so we didn't experience any disturbances...

This is a high quality hotel in a beautiful location. Spent a week here. Service was quietly efficient , staff smiling and polite. Visited a number of other hotels in the area and this is by far the best. House restaurant is good but expensive, but other good quality restaurants nearby. Great beach. Room was very comfortable and well equipped. Will visit again.

Stunning location, right by sea with infinity pool to admire the view. Staff are trained to cater for every need and always smiling! The rooms are beautiful with terraces or little gardens overlooking the sea and 'state of the art' bathrooms. The food is superb from freshly cooked breakfast to fine dining at the a la carte or a buffet of the highest standard. There is a lovely walk along the beach or gym to work up an appetite. The whole scene is idyllic !

Room Tip: All amazing!
