    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.

    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.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    An older style hotel, which provided all we needed especially its lovely position on the most fantastic beach in the world. Soft sand and no stones in the sea and lovely warm water.Food was varied and very tasty with nice relaxing service with inexpensive Seybrew beer and wine and a good selection of cocktails.Staff were all relaxed and very pleasant and the locals on the beach and over the whole island were very nice.

    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 The appearance is outdated, basic old style and would rather be expected in a non-developed country.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 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.

    Very nicely situated on Beau Vallon. Property is a little dated but very clean and well maintained. I was very disappointed to see that there are several large tortoises caged in a cement enclosure on the property. This is very inhumane. The Aldabra Tortoise can live over 100 years. This is a shame that these beautiful creatures are being kept in such a small unnatural habitat. I would love to see the hotel transfer these tortoises to Curieuse Island where they can live in the wild.

    It is near to everything.. the beach, reataurants nearby and 20 minutes away from victoria the capital. People are multi lingual, kind and good. Special mention to the very kind Miss Susan from the housekeeping who kindly set up our room into a honeymoon decoration when she found out we were getting married. Thank you very much.. Understaffed, i think.
