Rated 5 out of 5 by MrsJudy1 perfect stay
As a single female traveller I was looking for a safe environment where I could relax. From the moment I arrived my expectations were met and exceeded. I initially booked a superior room. It was lovely but as I planned to spend time aloneand in my room I asked if I could be upgraded at the appropriate cost. Julia on reception organised this quickly and cost efficiently. I had room 117 which had a lovely terrace overlooking the pool and ocean. It was ideal. Clean and always serviced with a smile. Every morning I walked along the beach before breakfast which was buffet style and generous. Snacks at the pool bar were limited but at the restaurant there was a wider choice. There was even the option of "half" a club sandwich knidly suggested by Bernadette - perfect for one person. At no stage was I made to feel like a "spare part" being a single traveller. Johnny in the lobby organised transfers etc and always greeted me by name. Similarly in the restaurant at breakfast my preferences were always remembered. I will be returning in October with others this time.Thank you for a much needed break from a very demanding job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neil148 If its service you want, this is the place to stay!
If you’re going to the Seychelles this is, without doubt the place to stay. My wife and I stayed at the hotel for 9 nights in November, this was the start of the rainy season and when it rains, boy does it rain, having said this we only got the occasional shower which was fine. The hotel its self is truly fantastic and certainly of 5 star quality in terms if standard of rooms, public areas, restaurants etc.
Our room was a junior suite, we had great rain fall shower in the middle of the room, I know that sounds strange but believe me it was fabulous and a bath tub big enough for 3 or 4, really luxury, the beds were extremely comfortable with high quality linen and the view from our patio was stunning, overlooking the bay with ocean views lots of swaying palm trees.
However, what really made the hotel was the level of service provided, I should state at the point that I travel for business (not travel industry related) and stay is some of the best hotels all around the world, and by far, for service this was undoubtedly the best we’ve ever had.
The assistant manager, Conor was to be seen around the hotel mingling with guest every day, always ensuring that their stay was the best it could be, he was also a mind of information when it came to the local area, places to visit, sights to see, what restaurants to eat at etc, he really made the difference for us. The duty manager Brenda was always around as well, constantly checking that the hotel and staff were functioning to the highest standards and again was happy to stop and chat making sure our every need was catered for.
We never made breakfast once, too busy catching up on sleep but would just have a coffee in the Le Cocoloba bar / restaurant, this is also where we would take lunch, the service offered by Yuna and Bernadette particularly was outstanding, they were never far away and made sure we were looked after very well, the food was great with a wide variety of snacks, both local and western, we were able to choose something different every day.
At night we eat at the Le Bourgeios, a’ la carte restaurant, again the menu had some great dishes, from traditional creole to classic French and a bit of Indian influence as well, try the red snapper stuffed with cottage cheese, unbelievable! Every night Juliana and Samantha were looking after us with great service of the finest quality, they were friendly, able to offer detailed advice on the menu and even offered to ask the chef to cook something that wasn’t on the menu if we wanted it, we did this twice, Juliana and Samantha recommended some traditional creole dishes that weren’t on the menu and the chef cooked them for us. Where else in the world would you get that? This kind of service has never been offered to us before!
What a great place, the Seychelles, was stunningly beautiful, the hotel was of the highest standard and the staff and service was out of this world, special thanks to Conor, he is truly leading a great team and one that works as one to give an all-round, outstanding experience. Without doubt we will be back, and soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Rohan Tiring & Poor Room
The room looked very tiring and old and require maintenance and renovation.
Room was dirty not clean properly lots of dust around and shower area not great at all as water was spilling everywhere (no door or curtains). Shower base was covered with wood which is not hygienic.
AC was very noisy at times in the night which disturb the sleep and the bed was not comfortable.
No houskeeping turndown which was very dissapointing and there were hairs on the sunbeds upon arrival.
No management staffs around to speak with the guests.
Not a great experience i would say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GentlePetal Worth a visit
Situated in a beautiful bay on a stunning stretch of beach, the atmosphere was lovely, the staff very pleasant, friendly and helpful and our room was spacious, bright and modern. The only negative was insufficient light in the bathroom to apply makeup; a plight from which most hotels suffer unfortunately. Dinner in Le Bourgeois restaurant was delicious. Access to other hotels, restaurants etc. in Beau Vallon is an easy walk along the beach when the tide is out but when the tide is in it’s better to get a taxi rather than a long up-hill walk back along the narrow, winding, dark road. As a suggestion, lights strung along the trees fringing the beach to light the way at night would be a worthwhile enhancement. We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at Le Meridien and would definitely stay there again.

We have had a fantastic vacations in this Hotel because It is very nice, elegant, with a magnific pool and beach, but overall the Service and the Management was the best.
We spent our 5th aniversary and they prepared a fantastic and very romantic dinner in a special place.
Mr Mathieu, GENERAL MANAGER, is very proffesional and worried about his clients.
I can recommend this hotel without any doubt.
I would like to say to Spanish People, specially, go to this Hotel and will not regret.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mike29 Ideal location and probably one of best vacations
Everything is made to make you feel confortable in this paradisiac location and hotel. Room design and decoration (and the bed quality!), restaurants, pool, bar, spa, and the friendly, always smiling, and efficient staff. Like Bernadette or Sophia and their team in the Bourgois or the Cardinal restaurants. Everyone is paying attention to your confort and happyness, from the pool boys to the Management. And the great Beauvallon beach nearby...

I stayed with my family for 5 nights from 27th May in a Deluxe suite. The staff's are very helpful and the service was excellent.
We got a sea view room and it was very nice and clean.
The breakfast was good and it has a veriety of choices. My advice Its better if breakfast starts at 6:30 am.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and me came into the hotel after long flight, and we were treated excellently by Johnny (portier). He did a great job! My wife mentioned, that she would like to have a special fruit: next day this fruit was delivered in very discrete manner and put to our table by Ronald. Thank you very much to this excellent customer care!

We Stayed for 5 nights in October 2012 and liked the hotel very much. The hotel is located in one of the finest location in Mahe. The hotel and the rooms are very clean and very comfortable. . Lovely atmosphere and buzz along the beach. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from if you don't fancy wandering too far. We enjoyed and had fun throughout our stay. The hotel staff are friendly and the concierge was extremely helpful. At times the staff especially front desk (Mrs. Linda) and restaurant manager at the breakfast restaurant) went extra mile to ensure we are in comfort zone. It is very very rare to experience this quality and unblemished service. We thank them for making our stay a memorable one and one of the best so far. Breakfast was good and one of the chefs was very creative in serving veg. food and overall, it was a very nice experience. Will be staying here again! The flip side is, it took time to get a room on the arrival day and delay in housekeeping service in the evenings.

We stayed at the Meriden on our honeymoon and had pre upgraded to a full suite. The hotel staff were simply fantastic even preempting all of our needs throughout our entire stay . Particular mention to Samantha , Sylvie and Natasha in the restaurant . Great smiling faces and perfect hosptalitity . Natasha makes the best omelettes we ever tasted all served with the biggest welcoming smiles. Connor , the assistant manger was attentive and listened when we made comment over a late check out issue that arose and promptly resolved our concerns and sent us a bottle of red....a nice touch supporting the excellent customer service we received..

Wonderful hotel in a great location. Staff is professional, friendly, great attitude. One issue to raise for management attention is lack of turn-sdown service at night. This should be expected for a hotel of this category and price.

This is the best location for an ideal holiday. Hotel provides number of outstanding facilities and more than anything else, a friendly staff from top to bottom. Scenic view from the hotel lobby is unbelievable and beach is a paradise to have a leisurely walk. More activities in the beach as well for one to engage in. Clean, nice and cozy environment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SAMARKANDA A great hotel in paradise
We have spent a week in November at the Fisherman's Cove and it is an amazing place to stay. We do for sure recommend it to everyone. The hotel is located right in front of a marvelous white sandy beach of cristal clear water. You could just spend all your days there enjoying the great location of this place. There are also great views from the elegant lobby as well as from the rooms.The personal touch that this hotel offers makes a huge difference with other 4-5 star hotels. The hotel manager himself is very concerned about you as an individual guest, and we were charmed by his friendliness.
The food is great and they offer a big variety of dishes, from a different buffet every night to a restaurant a la carte. The service is immaculate and all the staff is very nice and very helpful.
Without doubt we will be back, it was a dream holiday and we could not have chosen a better place to stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Luci Great place to relax, great service and tasteful food
We travelled for 9 days from Mahe to Praslin and back to Mahe and stayed the llast 3 days in Le Méridien Fisherman's Cove. I can clearly recommend the hotel because of 3 reasons:
1) Every single member of the staff is friendly and did everything to make the stay an amazing experience.
2) From all the high standard restaurants and hotels we have seen on the Seychelles this hotel has the best variety for breakfast, the buffet restaurant offered fresh and tasteful food with new themes every day but the a la carte restaurant exceeded our expectations even further. Haute cuisine and a nice private atmosphere with ocean view.
3) The hotel has the right size to offer the comfort and services (spa, fitness, pool, bar, 2 restaurants) but avoids the hectic pace of a large hotel. Thus it is a great place to relax.

Nice and very comfortable Hotel, well located at "beauvallon", at the beach.
A 5 stars hostel with a nice garden and architecture and a small pool with deckchairs.
2 restaurants, one buffet ("the Cardinal"), gastronomic other ("Le Bourgeois", good but if u're hungry, don't go ;-).
One of the oldest on Mahé, so however aging in details (lightning bulk in pool, stoned deckhairs, grating in shower, cleanliness of bathroom hard to maintain, doors etc). We were surprised, during our absences, our flat was "visited" to put on our bed the hostel newsletter, turn on the lightnin or the clim.
Staff is however very nice, especialy at the spa.
But the beach (nice snorkling, swimming, restaurants, market...) is a real advantage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OliwiaK74 Very calm and cosy hotel lost in a nice tropical garden
The Meridien Fisherman Cove hotel is a very pleasant and authentic hotel located in a very nice area with direct access to the beach.
The swimming pool even if a little bit small is very nice with a direct view to the ocean. We can admire the Sunset from the pool!
I stayed with my children and they were absolutely delighted. The atmosphere is very relaxed and calm. There is a nice garden and nice areas where we can relax or have some drinks/snacks. The hotel also benefits from one of the best gastronomic restaurants on the Mahe Island : Le Bourgeois. I recommend the menu in the evening.
The rooms are very comfortable with nice bathroom, nice furniture and very good quality beds (we had the Deluxe Room).
The staff is absolutely lovely.

Beautiful! Gorgeous, idyllic location. For food included (we did half board) - very good, actually. Far better than other hotels where I've had meals included. The staff was always helpful and pleasant. Only minor complaints - they didn't always leave us clean towels, the shower had limited hot water. Nothing major.

We stayed 7 days at the hotel and I have to say we were extremely happy and satisfied with the hotel staff and the facilities. The food was great, both at breakfast and at the restaurants in the evening. We would like to say special thanks to Bernadette for making sure we are happy with the breakfast, and being very caring and interested in our experience in Seychelles. Thanks to Yuna, who was welcoming us every morning at the restaurant and thanks to Natasha for my pancakes every morning. The staff at reception were very friendly and helpful as well. If you have any problem, speak to them and they will do anything to help you. Both I and my husband recommend this hotel. It is very quiet and great for relaxing. We hired a car, so managed to go around the whole island, and we realised that the hotel is located near the best beach - Beau Vallon. It is not far to the capital as well. Overall our stay was excellent. I my view this is the best hotel in the island, as I visited 2-3 other hotels for comparison. Thank you Le Meridian Fisherman's Cove!!!
