Pretty decent but scope for improvement
The overall stay was fine and pleasant. The property and room was clean, though a little patchwork was visible on the walls. The spa and massage was very nice. The staff was friendly but had some weird policies like not giving water except on the first day of stay, so had to buy water, which is normally expected from a hotel to be provided. The pool was okay, not exactly infinity but serviceable. There were not many beach view apartments which was a bummer, but the balconies and surrounding nature made up for it. The attached beach felt private and clean. Please go in expecting an apartment instead of a standard resort room with an in-room kitchen and utensils, and you'll be fine. I won't call it value for money because despite paying a lot of money, breakfast was not included in our stay, but the overall standard was nice and warm.

Superb hotel right on the most exclusive beach
This hotel is very well managed and everything seems so very local. It took us about 20 minutes or so to reach the hotel from the Ferry terminal using a cab. Although one could book a fairly good car at the ferry terminal, we chose not to on the first day but in hindsight this may be the better option instead of spending on a cab as car rentals are very inexpensive on the island. The check-in process was very smooth and they gave us a welcome drink and a wet towel to freshen up. As the room was not ready, they gave us help with the location and explained what we could potentially do. There is a small village nearby (about 10 minutes walk away either on the road or on the beach) where there are shops (most essential to buy a SIM card) and other restaurants. The local PADI dive centre is in that village too. There is a food truck which sells some good local food and a fruit vendor where one can have cooonut water and other exotic fruits. The room was ready by the time we got back and it was a great room with a view of and direct access to the beach and ocean. The beach is great for long walks at any time of day or night. Breakfast was really superb with a wide selection of all sorts of local/western cuisine and the bar and restaurant served some really good local delicacies for lunch/dinner like Octopus curry (best on the island) and mixed vegetable curry. All the staff were very friendly and the hotel is very well managed.

Beautiful beach, good food
The hotel is set on a gorgeous beach (although you may get very itchy from sand fly bites if you happen to be allergic to them). The breakfast and dinner buffets are very good (and dinner ones are varied), the spa is totally excellent and is reasonably priced (although open until 6 pm only). Rooms may not be luxurious but are spacious and perfectly functional with kitchen facilities. A dive center is walking distance down the beach.

Not worth the price charged at all!
While its a nice hotel, close to the beach with a decent pool, its very over priced and not worth it at all. At this rate you could book several fancier options.

Nice hotel close to beach.
Well positions close to beach and amenities on Cote D'or. The hotel was excellent, very clean with a good pool and friendly staff. We stayed in an apartment in the hotel grounds. The bed was very comfortable but the seating area in the lounge was very uncomfortable as were the breakfast bar stool. The kitchen was well appointed with a big fridge and new cooker but lacked a lot of the basic equipment you would expect.

Beautiful Beachfront Resort on Praslin
Beautiful resort and rooms. Welcoming staff who all willingly go out of their way to ensure your comfort and convenience. Gorgeous Beach particularly at low tide. Tasty food at the beach side bar/restaurant. ATM and bus stop a short walk away. Wifi in room. We had to check out early despite a late departure and the hotel was more than accommodating with a room to shower and luggage storage. The only thing I can really criticize is that the dinner buffet was ok ( perfectly good but nothing memorable). Overall I would look forward to returning to Acajou on my next trip to Praslin!

Well appointed rooms and a jewel of a hotel
Jewel of a hotel, located on Cote D'Or - one of the best beach stretches on Praslin. The hotel and rooms are well equipped and can handle your every request. The breakfast (especially eggs to order) are fantastic. The main manager was very very helpful. We asked her only once for organising cars/ excursion and though there was no availability, she made a couple of calls and made sure she helped out. The other junior ladies would do well to follow her lead in customer delight. There are good restaurants at 10-15 minute walking distance. Bai saint Anne (so called downtown and ferry terminal) is 10 minutes away. Anse lazio/ Valle de mai both equi distance from Acajou. So actually this is the best location to stay on the island. The gardens are beautiful and you will wake up to birds chirping....
