Excellent location in Beau Vallon, hotel is not very modern, however beds were clean and rooms as well. The only thing I was not too keen on was the music during the night from the bar downstairs. Overall good stay!

We were here as a part of our honeymoon. After spending the first few days in a resort in Praslin Island, our first impression of the room in Coral Strand was "This room is so small"! However, what impressed us was the professionalism of the staff, the facilities in the rooms(we missed a refrigerator), the ocean deck restaurant which is... More

This hotel is over rated and do not believe the pictures the stuff are rude, and they will leave you at the check in for long time then they will try to give you their worst rooms and if you complain they will change your room. I am there now and unfortunately have to continue my next three days with... More

Nice place, nice staff. very small swimming pool but nice beach. Food a bit poor (buffet). Music (with sometimes very bad singers!) every night from 7pm to 10 pm...just in front of most of the rooms. Check out at 10am and very expensive if you want to extend.

Hotel in a perfect location, at the beach, near local fruit and food market, lively atmosphere, long beach suitable for joggers! Nice breakfasts, comfortable beds. Room decor a bit out-dated, some rooms have views over the walls, but all in all I recommend!

This is my second trip to Seychelles and first to this hotel. Have had numerous international trips, but never seen a place where the ground staff is efficient and the reception / front desk is ineffective except Martin and Leo. We went on half-board. Our vouchers stated that we would get some freebies such as wine and fruit basket, however... More

The room is very clean, hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Overall a good experience. Location is not near the city, but you can take a 10 min bus ride down town, which is quite convenient. The hotel is situated right next to the beach.

We stayed 2 weeks at this hotel. The breakfast and dinner were very good, they often served a excellent whole fried fish for dinner. The staff were vere friendly and helpful. The beach is very beautiful. Prices for drinks are very expensive, but there are some supermarkets are in short distances. Rooms are very clean, every day got new towels.

What an amazing location. Rooms are adequately equipped, views and service are excellent, except for our experience upon check-in. Upon arrival we were not greeted, by Marie-Antoinette, who was having an argument with a client checking out. Leo, the manager on duty, was also very rude to them. I had to interject the conversation for service. Unfortunately first impressions last,... More
