Great setting and beach but poor service

Pros: centrally located on the island, beautiful setting by the mountains and with a private beach, good snorkeling right off the beach, nice big pool
Cons: the bar and food service, our room had a humid musty smell, some of staff seem very junior and not professional, Tamarind restaurant too expensive
Location: close to the roads that lead up to Morne Seychelles National park where nice hikes with views can be done, Grande Anse beach is right next to hotel
The location and setting of the hotel are fabulous, especially the Ocean View Suite that we had for 3 nights. The reception staff were friendly and responsive but the bar drink and food service was terrible. They were very disorganized and not able to serve the customers - everyone was getting angry! It would take at least 30 min to get a drink and over an hour to get any food. Plates and glasses were left for hours around the pool and bar area without being cleaned. What a shame as the place is beautiful, but I would not recommend this hotel due to this overwhelming issue and lack of management attention.

Schönes Hotel, direkt an traumhaftem Strand.

Pros: Lage, Frühstücksbuffet
Cons: Schulung des Personals
Location: Das Hotel liegt etwas abseits. Es lohnt sich, ein Auto zu mieten, um die Insel zu erkunden.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt im AVANI sehr genossen. Das Frühstücksbuffet war grossartig. Upgrade auf Halbpension für 25 Euro pro Tag lohnt sich, denn das Abendbuffet ist auch sehr reichhaltig und vielseitig. Auswärts essen lohnt sich auf den Seychellen nicht wirklich, denn es ist in der Regel nicht berauschend und sehr teuer. Der Strand ist ideal zum Baden und Schnorcheln, weniger zum Schwimmen. Die Zimmer sind sehr geschmackvoll und gross, wir haben sogar ein Upgrade von Standard zu Meersicht bekommen, weil wir 2 Wochen da waren. Abzug gibt es, weil es sehr grosse Unterschiede gibt beim Service: Es gibt top ausgebildete Angestellte und solche, die verstehen nichts vom Fach und sind auch nicht sehr arbeitswillig. Unter dem Strich jedoch: Super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis, sehr zu empfehlen!
