Second travel to the new emerald, always amazing... the place is fantastic , food is good, garden looks likes the paradise and the lagoon is full of nice and colored fishes and turtles. Nothing to reclaim, if you want dancing and crowd please avoid to come but if you are looking for an haven of peace you can find it...

Fantastic place to relax and the service is great.. From the skipper who explained the island to the manager who welcome you on the jetty. Creole show was the cherry on the cake.. The place to be on Praslin

Amazing property and location. Very very friendly staff. In short an amazing experience. Only factors which resulted in one less star were: 1. Even guests staying had to pay for snorkeling gear where as in Ladigue one of the hotels let us use it's gear even when we were not staying there. 2. Rooms were very small. Positives: 1. Friendly...

The New Emerald Cove Hotel has a wonderful location next to Anse la Farine at the South East tip of Praslin. It is remote and peaceful, connected to the Baie St. Anne pier by the complementary hotel shuttle boat only. This is a big plus for those looking for quiet and relaxation in a resort embedded in the nature below...

The hotel is remote, there is no road access, you have to take a boat to main jetty in Praslin. Being remote can be nice, except in the case you really have to rely on the hotel for meals, especially since they don't have any scheduled boat trips around dinner hours. The food served is beyond terrible, I ate better...

If you are looking to stay in an old dark bugs infected cabana, this will be your dream place.... Everything is very old and worn out. The room was not clean at all, dead bugs everywhere. The hot shower ran out pretty quickly. You are stuck in that place because they don't have any road access. You can call it...

this hotel is very nicely situated on a beach with no car access: it gives you a feeling of "end of the world jungle" feeling. the beach is great and of course calme and very low populated. 4 tortoises are living on the premisses: very entertaining for the kids: finding them and feeding them. on a base of half board...

Ok the hotel is old, definitely needs refurbishment but it offers the best schnorkelling on the island. And as you pay quite low rates compared to rest of the island, i highly recommend it. Few notes: - limited variety at the buffet but it tasted well and was more than enough - best schnorkelling - definitely swim until the reef....

As there is no road access tranquility and privacy are ensured.The reception, the impressive high-ceiling restaurant and the seven chalets - totaling 42 rooms - and are scattered in the lush gardens just beyond a white sandy beach.
