Dirty
Good location but really needs to be renovated. Cleaning staff need better equipment. Feet and socks become brown from floor in hotel room. Food not matching the prices.

Not worth the cost
The hotel is in definite need of updating. The general cost of Seychelles is very expensive; however, the value for this facility was not there. The location is really the only benefit, but if I knew beaches were truly public I would've stayed a little farther away. Initially we received a room that had a very strong odour of mold. The staff were good to show us another room, but it had a similar smell so we had to go to a third room. The staff try to keep the facilities clean, but it really needs to be renovated.

The hotel is old and bad maintained. We moved right away out of this hotel.

Poor Room Condition
Location of hotel on the beach was wonderful. Friendly staff and manager Austin's response to our feedback was prompt and showed great qservice recovery- thank you! Nonetheless, condition of hotel room (avoid rm 201 despite prime location to beach) left much to be desired. Chipped tiles, stained walls and shower stall and black grouting, scruffy and worn furniture. Certainly not the 4-star it is advertised to be.

Fair 4.0
needs major renovation
The hotel, located on a nice strip of sandy beach and clear sea, needs renovation. The appearance is outdated, basic old style and would rather be expected in a non-developed country. For checking in there was a waiting line, the elevator out of order, the A/C sounded more like a washing machine.

Poor 2.0
Deceptive photos. Room sold not given.
We'd booked a Superior Room with an ocean view for 4 nights along with another couple with the same booking. Arriving late in the evening we went to our rooms and thought there had been a mistake but too late to complain. When we checked with staff in the morning it was found that the rooms we had been sold were in fact a Classic Room with an Ocean View. The photos on the site are of the penthouse specifically beside the description of Superior Room, Ocean View. We were not happy as they could not accommodate these rooms. Deceptive advertising.They offered to move us to the Savoy next door for an additional 50 Euro a night. Best decision ever! Both hotels are in a great location yet the Savoy is far superior. The Coral Strand is a basic 70's style hotel on a good beach. There is no privacy on the balconies and the bathroom is old. The Savoy is set back a little from the beach but 2 minutes from our room. It felt like going from a 3 star hotel to a plush 5 star!

Disappointed
We were married at the Coral Strand 30 years ago. It was a beautiful hotel with fantastic service and we were very well looked after so we always vowed to return. We did return and were very disappointed. The first room we were given stank of cats pee, the shower squirted more water on the ceiling than on me, sink taps weren't attached properly, the bathroom door was mouldy as were the curtains. We complained and were immediately moved to another room which was a big improvement. We met two other couples there that had exactly the same problems (cat pee smell etc) and had to be moved. Some staff couldn't be nicer and yet some others were quite sullen. The food was average, the main lift only worked sometimes and when we checked out nobody offered to help with our baggage and, guess what, the lift wasn't working so we had to carry them on our own down three floors. Overall we thought the hotel was looking very tired. The location is fantastic!
