Rated 5 out of 5 by IRONMANJT Fantastic Property!
I have nothing but great things to say for the most part. As as SPG platinum received an upgrade to a fabulous suite. Strong AC which was important in the heat and humidity. Option of breakfast for platinum guests was a fantastic value. Only minor quibble was over a minibar charge, which the manager offered me approximately 60 cents off when I complained - that verges on insulting. When I told them so, they sighed and just removed the charge altogether. Satisfatory result, but the attitude wasn't really needed. But, all said, that was a ver minor complaint - this property is fantastic!

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 3 out of 5 by Ita987 Good location, overpriced, needs improvements
The hotel needs several improvements and governance to be enforced by a responsive, better trained staff. A closer supervision of the staff is necessary. Housekeeping needs double check. Food was good, dinner service to be improved. Friendly welcome but several flaws raised up during the stay. Overpriced. Would I go back, I would definitely renegotiate the room price for a better deal.

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 WiseGem Our second visit to this hotel
Great location with beautiful sea views, friendly staff and excellent food made our stay very special.
We received an especially warm welcome from Bernadette, who remembered us from our previous visit. We would like to say a big thank you to her and the other ladies working in the restaurants. Their smiling faces and cheerful nature went a long way to make our holiday perfect. Connor’s genuine interest in our comfort showed professional care which is to be commended. We wish you all a happy New Year and may 2014 bring many good things to you all.
