It was a cool place. Really quiet with pretty good food. But quite pricey.

Resort is beautifully located on the west shore so sunsets are amazing! Resort has a fantastic large pool that is great for laps. Ocean swimming isn't great anywhere in the Seychelles because of changing currents and rip tides, but this resort has a lovely ocean pocket for relaxing in the 84 F water. Hotel is comfortable but does need refurbishing, The rooms are a little tired but overall fine. People in the Seychelles are pretty laid pack, Steve, the Concierge was wonderfully hospitable.

Bad Management
Took 3 requests to get room cleaned. Benjamin Seidel is front desk manager that promised to get it done on the second request. Terrible management. Tamarind Restaurant was excellent but buffet and lunch were terrible. Great massage therapist, Kadek.

It was good. Barbarons beach is public beach but it feels like a private beach when you stay at Avani. The service was excellent; and the food was okay. However Avani is quite far from all the action.

מלון מצויין, בריכה וים נהדר
,מלון נהדר, לדעתי 5 כוכבים ולא 4 כוכבים, בריכה נהדרת, חוף ים יפה שמתאים גם לשחייה ולשנורקלים, הארוחות לא יקרות ולא זולות (סביב ה 600 רופי סיישלי לבופה בארוחת ערב) הארוחות טעימות ומגוונות אך לא מדהימות

Beautiful ground, awesome service, rooms ehh
We booked this hotel because we missed our connecting flight to praslin. The hotel is beautiful and the beach and pool area is amazing. The rooms are ok. Nothing special and outdated as people say. My complaint would be the air conditioner. The room was HOT and HUMID all night. The service was amazing. We left at 5am the next morning and the front desk was up to greet us goodbye with special to go breakfast. We didn’t really try any hot food so I have no review. I would recommend but just take note of no real air conditioning.... after all you are in the Seychelles. Go to the beach!!!

Great vacation and hospitality experience at Avani Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa. The value and the price what we expected as a 4 star hotel. Our Beach front room was clean and net with extemly comfortable bed, the view from the room and the balconi was amazing. The pool, spa well maintained, at the garden and at beach front hardworking staff were consistently cleaning the area. Very comfortable to stay at the beach front. Staff at the reception were very helpful and friendly also advising highlight excursion. The restaurant was well arranged with breakfast and dinner selection. All food was delicious and tasty. Great omelette, fresh fruits and smoody station in the morning, at night the barbecue garden was great especially fish selection. Restaurant Manager and Ex-Chef were consistently checking guests experience during any meal. Friendly and hardworking staff were looking for any opportunity to have our stay enjoyable and memorable. We thorougly enjoyed our 6 days at Avani.

Bad experience
I was very disappointed during my stay at Avani. The resort’s location is very isolated.The food was terrible flies were everywhere I even found a big cockroach walking around the breakfast buffet. We got bitten by bed bugs. The New year’s celebration was just awful the food and band and the DJ was just terrible and it was mandatory to pay for it even if you’re not gonna attend. I used the laundry service to clean my shoes and they actually ruined them. The only good thing about this resort is the concierge & room services staff especially Elimra.
