This hotel is located on a very beautiful beach just a short distance from the main beach of beau vallon. The location is fantastic and the snorkelling which can be done right off the beach is amazing. We stayed there for 2 nights and would definitely want to go back someday. The staff were very accommodating and took good care...

Don't believe all the bad reviews, this hotel is absolutely fantastic. The hotel is right on the beach, which is secluded and reasonably quiet. There is great snorkeling right from the shore, we even saw a turtle! For breakfast you can have omelettes to order with other cooked items and pastries. The lunch menu was nice and we hardly ate...

The hotel is aptly named so as it is one of the best spots to catch a glorious sunset. The setting is amazing and one can even see shoals of fish & if lucky, even a sting ray like we did, from the pool & bar area which is perched above the Indian ocean. I spent all my evenings there...

Went here on our honeymoon. Stayed for 7 days. The location is great as it is out of beau vallon. The stay overall was let down by several things. The first was the availability of the snorkel that are advertised as being available for guest use, we asked to use them on the second day but they were unavailable until...

I've never stayed here but am a regular visitor to the bar for cocktails at sunset perched above the Indian Ocean where you can drop in bread for the coral fish, rays and small sharks to swim around you. The setting and sunset is brilliant. The beach and sea is great for a sunset swim too and there are lots...

The only saving grace to this place, the view and location is breath taking. It is a little piece of paradise which is made very uncomfortable by the staff and the ram shackled maintenance. The view from the beach, bar and room is mind blowing. They have a private cove with slightly fierce water compared to the west coast of...

We have read many reviews before booking this hotel. Still, we wanted to give it a try. We stayed here for 2 weeks, during Christmas 2016 and New Year's Eve. The place itself and the beach are really beautiful. I would say it is the most beautiful beach on the whole Mahe island. We booked a Junior Suite, as it...

Good location, that's it. This was the colour of my bath. I have been told it was normal. Very very worn out hotel. Half of the staff couldn't care less and seems bored. The other half was nice. They are actually about to shut down the hotel and rebuild it.

We booked a separate villa there. I personally spoke with representative and warned that we need villa, not rooms in hotel. But when we arrived we got a surprise - our booked villa was occupied. We got apology from stuff and explanation that "there were more important guests ( owner's friends ? ) than us". So, place itself is amazing,...
