    Will go again

    We enjoyed our stay , the hotel is in an amazing location but sadly in desperate need of maintenance and a significant refurbishment. The staff are lovely particularly Lucy in the restaurant and they are working hard to make everybody happy but the condition of the hotel is not up to standard although we had a very nice room which was very comfortable there was lots of hot water and for a beach holiday it was perfectly adequate.Food was repetitive but a 7 out of 10

    The property is beautiful but it is a bit run in the maintenance department. For example, missing down spouts, old paint, moldy cushions, rotting wood. Empty bottles and there consumables by hotel residents were not picked up for a couple of days. Service was top notch!

    The setting was beautiful. The beach and snorkelling worth the cost. Would be nice to have greater choice at dinner.

    Great hotel, owners time and money needed

    Overall the hotel is great. The staff are mainly friendly and helpful and room service on point. Sunsets are divine. Watch outs - the waves and current can get big at high tide. The menu doesn't include service and tax slapping you with an extra 25% on top of any bill. If the owner spent time and money on the hotel and saying hi to guests rather than rocking up in her Bentley and terrifying the staff the atmosphere would be a lot nicer.

    Full of character, only a small number of rooms, spectacular views at sunset; friendly staff. Rooms need updating and internet access too (non existent)

  • 4.0.Fair

    We had read mixed reviews before coming to this hotel, so expectations weren't particularly high. Once we arrived, first impression was great, location is beautiful, views are amazing, great little beach just outside the hotel, etc. However this is it... Service wasn't great, not even a simple smile or welcome when we arrived. All of the staff looked a bit miserable, food wasn't great either. The worst part was check out. We had booked a taxi with a gentleman at the reception for the next morning, he confirmed that it's fine, next morning when passing the reception desk I mantioned to the lady at the desk that we want to change the time to 15mins later. That's what she did, she called a taxi at 10.15am. In the end, we had two cars waiting for us, apparently this gentleman from the reception was going to take us probably with his personal car, and then we had a regular taxi (booked in the morning by lady receptionist) as well. Man receptionist almost started shouting at us why are we double booking taxis, and he was waiting for us to take us where we needed. He argued even for few minutes. I hope the hotel's management or owners will read this review, cause I don't think this is the right way to deal with your hotel's guests and I really don't think this was legal for him to do taxi services. Overall, our experience at the hotel would have been fairly good, the check out ruined this experience and after that I cannot recommend this hotel.

    Proximity to beach was great, but only wi-fi in common areas not rooms was a negative.

    Bien placé sur superbe plage. Propreté moyenne. Restaurant médiocre à éviter. Infrastructures décadentes. L’hôtel a besoin d’un sérieux lifting. Personnel sympathique comme généralement le cas aux Seychelles.

    Fin beliggenhet, dårlig service, dra et annet sted

    Hotellet har en nydelig beliggenhet på svabergene med en strand ved siden av hotellet. Fantastisk utsikt mot havet og Silouette Island. Rommene var rene og fine. Nye håndklær hver dag. Safen på vårt rom funket ikke og ble aldri fikset heller, selv om vi ble lovt det. Frokosten er veldig god, godt utvalg. Lunsj er også ganske bra. Middagen, not so much, dårlig utvalg og lite rullering på menyen som gjør at det er vanskelig å oppleve nye retter ila. et en-ukes opphold. Vi var veganere, og det gjorde det ekstra vanskelig. Vi ble fort lei maten. Kokkene var dog fantastiske servicemennesker som elsker å servere folk god mat, det er personalet ellers som er problemet. Det bringer meg til mitt neste punkt: Servicen er tragisk! Godt førsteinntrykk med velkomstdrink, men der stoppet det. Ingen smil og "good morning" i resepsjonen. Hvis vi spurte om noe så det ut som de ikke forstod eller fikk vondt. i restauranten fjerner de gjerne tallerken din før du er ferdig hvis du ikke passer på, vi følte oss jagd ut. Oppholdet ble avsluttet med at vi fikk regningen før vi i det hele tatt fikk desserten vi hadde bestilt. Konklusjon: Invester heller noen ekstra lapper i et annet hotell!
