We were there for 6 days during our honeymoon and we had a great experience. The structure is not super new but it is pefectly kept and maintained. Rooms are large, very comfortable and spotless. Very nice private beach and equally nice infinity pool (not huge but big enough). Food is very good, even if perhaps a little bit pricey. Lovely to have meals on the beach, few mts from the sea. Personnel is a plus: kind, always in a good mood, helpful. Note that it is quite a long walk to the small village of cote d'or as the hotel is slightly outside.

We had a very nice time with our 2 children is this hotel. We stayed for a week and had the swimming pool almost for ourselves. The staff is superfriendly and the view from our house was amazing. We could sit there for hours.The houses are set up in a spacious garden full with flowers and you don't even notice that there are guests staying here. Everything is so quiet. Serving staff could be a bit more attentive, f.e. if you ask for butter it will get to your table 15 minutes later but you forget about it because everybody is so friendly. The children could order anything they liked and if they could it was cooked for them. Amazing! We wanted to do watersports but unfortunately, almost everything was broken except the canoes and we had the impression that it had been broken for quite a while.

The first stop on our honeymoon was L'archipel and even though we found a few things not quite to our taste during our five days overall it was a very pleasant stay. The setting is wonderful and our room and the hotel beach area were excellent. I think the staff could do with a little more energy and I think the menus for dinner are way too formal with chefs trying to offer London restaurant dishes but not hitting the mark

Make sure you take the ferry to La Digue and also visit Bom Bom Plume restaurant at Anse Lazio for a chilled out lunch with a feet in the sand experience

My future wife and I stayed at L'Archipel for 7 nights in July 2010 and had our wedding at the hotel during our stay. My "intended" knew that we were going to The Seychelles to get married however she had no idea about the hotel and ceremony details, as I had made all the arrangements. As a consequence given that from a bride's perspective this is HER big day, I had my fingers crossed that our dream wedding / honeymoon would be unforgettable for the right reasons.

I needn't have worried, L'Archipel and its staff made our week with them extra special. Flavio, the hotel wedding organiser, was an absolute star and his beaming smile and calming style was ideal, particularly when 2 hours prior to our planned beachside wedding the weather started to take a turn for the worse and with little fuss he was able to re-organise the wedding including government registrar, photographer, cake and flowers for the following day. Our wedding was beautiful!

I have read a number of reviews of the hotel staff on Tripadvisor which have not been positive. From our experience, the staff could have not done anymore for us and they were all genuinely friendly, kind and very professional in executing their duties (including when one of the waiters volunterred to video our wedding for us - he did a great job).

The food in the restaurants was exceptional. We are so glad that we booked half-board. Not only did it take away the hassle of looking for restaurants in the vicinity of the hotel (apart from other beachside hotels - 15 mins walk away) the food was of an oustanding standard for the price we paid. The quality was absolutely up with 5 star restaurants in Europe, without the price and pretensiousness. I've also read a number of disgruntled comments about the price of alcohol. You have to remember that alcohol is imported and is such at a premium price. That being said the price of a glass of wine in the restaurant was similar to that you would pay at a half decent restaurant in the UK.

During our stay we were lucky to be upgraded from an executive room to a suite. Both rooms were spotlessly clean with fresh flowers used to decorate the bedrooms and bathroom on a daily basis - beautiful and romantic!

If you are considering having a wedding in a tropical location, please consider L'Archipel for your venue!

Whilst I'm sure that alot of people that go to L'Archipel say that they will go back there again because they had a special time, the hotel and in particular its staff have secured a spot in my and my wife's heart AND WE WILL BE GOING BACK to celebrate a future wedding anniversary.

Hotel is in a lovely setting with a good swimming beach and delightful grounds. Rooms large with spacious bathrooms but rather dimly lit if you want to read at night. Most rooms seem to have good sea views looking out towards Curieuse Island. Extremely helpful reception staff and very good and friendly service in restaurant. Food was excellant and attractively presented but a pity that those on half board only eat by the beach on buffet evenings (wednesdays and saturdays). Main disadvantage of this hotel was cost of drinks even by Seychelles standards. Cheapest wine was around £26-£30 with Seybrew around £4 a bottle.

Found Pierre who runs the boat trips from the hotel helpful and although the trips are expensive they are less than if you book via the reps from Masons or Creole and can be tailor made.

Would suggest if going to La Digue to get reception to book ferry and either get taxi or bus to ferry. Can go on organised trip but expect to pay £80-90 for 2 instead of around £40.

Good way to get around is the local bus which is very cheap and runs from the end of the drive to the hotel - reception can give you a timetable.

It appears you can use either rupees or euros for most things but it appears that you pay more if paying in euros - maybe by up to 15%.

You can walk along the road or part road / beach to Cote D'or village in about 25min and get wine and beer at 1/4 cost of hotel.
