  • 10.0.Exceptional

    L'Archipel is the only hotel in a very nice beach (Anse Gouvernement) so you will be able to enjoy this natural wonder without disturbance. The hotel is well integrated with Praslin natural beauty. Hotel staff is very friendly and happy to help with any of your requests - from excursions to taxi arrangements. Rooms can be located quite close to the beach, so you can fall asleep while listening to the sea and the sounds of all the island birds. I was impressed with the high cleaning standard and the two daily upkeeps of our room - as this hotel is integrated with nature it is quite difficult to keep the insects at bay, something that the hotel managed quite successfully.

  • 8.0.Very good

    It was a good stay, the staff friendly just that the kitchen closes early for dinner n you cant have late food after 9;30pm. Also the lady at the reception,Christa is very rude and shouts at us. That was a turn off as the receptionist should be warm n accommodating.

    Perfect resort for those whi prefer a quite vacati

    A small hotel (30 bungalis) on an excellent location with a private beach and a beautiful landscape. Friendly service. A place for those who look for a quiet vacation in a beautiful spit far from the crowd.

    Place needs renovation

    Place was accessed through bush trail. One of the oldest resorts on Praslin is long overdue for a relaunch. Small pool. Air conditioning did not work well, Internet was awful slow, and did not work 50% of the time. Little effort was made to keep beach free of weeds. Water in bay was very murky, and could not see bottom.

    Great Resort; Management Needs Improvement

    Stayed for four nights. Pros: Great views!!!, lovely breakfast and service from staff with delicious warm pastries each morning, amazing location near downtown, beautiful rooms. Cons: Communication with hotel, beach was very pretty but its swimming condition was just ok and snorkeling was non-existent due to the very low visibility, no fitness room, got the impression the management was more interested in $$$ than making sure you had a pleasant experience. Mini fridge didnt work and needed to be replaced which they did so quickly, but only after suggesting we weren't using it right. Room was missing robes and luggage rack which is totally fine, but when we called to ask for these, they were adamant they were in the room, but they weren't. Just a lot of back and forth. Overall, the stay was okay. It had its ups and definite downs. We had a booking miscommunication which was eventually worked out, but could have been handled a lot more professionally by the management team. The poor communication left a very bitter taste in our mouths and unfortunately, it was hard to enjoy the rest of our say.
