4/10 Fair

Jenny was lovely and helpful. Travis lacks people skills. He was arrogant and acted petulant after a discussion about a key disaster at the house. He would be preparing food and washing up at midnight with the kitchen right next to our bedroom, clanging crockery on the tiled bench, keeping me awake. Someone was slushing out the bathroom next to us at 10.30 at night when we were trying to sleep. The house was very hot. The bathroom was dank and smelt musty. It took 3 days fir things to dry in there. No airflow. The beach near the house is full fishing boats and fishing gear. Buses come in the hour to get around the island.

8/10 Very good

Having read the previous reviews before booking, we knew going in that the hotel was more of an "Air Bnb" or home stay. The family who runs Villa Bethlehem live on site, on the second floor, and the kitchen/living room/restroom/bedrooms are on the main floor. It certainly feels like a home as opposed to a hotel. The staff was very friendly and more than happy to share their experience with the various tourist sites and beaches of the island. We had rented a car, and the place was easy to find, with ample parking. When we arrived, they were waiting for us, and we had no problems checking in. The room was clean and had working air conditioning. They offered to cook us meals (for a fee, obviously), but also let us have access to their fridge/utensils free of charge. The only thing that I was particularly unhappy about was that they wanted to charge was 1 euro per piece of clothing for laundry. I was certainly not interested in spending almost 30 euros to do laundry for the two of us! In the end, we just got a laundry detergent bar of soap from a store close by and did it ourselves. Overall, I enjoyed the place and would definitely come back if staying in Mahe again!

Nice and comfortable, easy to access
Our stay was short but was well received. The staff are friendly and helpful. Location is quiet and ideal for a short get away from the normal busy routine of our lives.

Villa Bethlehem is a B&B.....
Well to say we were disappointed would be an understatement because we did NOT expect to be staying in somebody's house. It was an unbelievably awkward situation as we felt we just intruding. If we had wanted to stay in a B&B we would have booked that.....we assumed it was a part of a villa where we would have our own space. It wasn't far from the beach but otherwise there is nothing else in the immediate area apart from a few food shops and one restaurant that only opens in the evening and not on we were pretty hungry that day! Unfortunately the weather was awful and it rained for 3 days, so we were pretty much housebound. The couple who own Villa Bethlehem are kind and offered us food but we thought that 20 euros a head for breakfast was a tad steep!! All in all it was clean and tidy....nice a/c in the bedroom and a huge bathroom for one of the rooms but it was just not what it said on the tin and it felt pretty awkward most of the time. We did explain to them that we felt it was mis-represented and so they wouldn't accept money for our boiled eggs and toast breakfast.
