The resort lies on a pretty island. It offers spacious villas, we loved comfortable jacuzzi and great view over the sea. You can walk on the beach, watch small sharks and stingrays in the water and snorkell. For snorkelling the water is sometimes not so clear, perhaps due to proximity of sweet spring and some corals died because of global... More

We chose Cerf Island after much research. It seemed to promise so much so we left UK with high hopes. The reception at the airport by Masons was quick and efficient and we were soon on our way to our boat pick up.

We stayed on the island that is just an amazing location and the Villa's are very spacious, there is an issue with the toilet seats that are being addressed. The staff are generally friendly but operate on island time that basically means you can wait up to 45-60 mins for a drink when you order one, which is not ideal.... More

We wanted a quiet tranquil location to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary, and we found just the place. There are only 24 Villas and only a few were in use during our stay.

When you travel to somewhere like the Seychelles, expectations are high. Unfortunately, Cerf Island Resort did not meet these expectations. This is a 4* resort with high prices for food and beverages. And this is the first issue - Food quality. The hotel website quotes 'Fine Dining'. It is not. It is a buffet which is laid out at 7.00pm... More
