Perfect Location

This hotel is ideally situated right on a beautiful beach, but with easy access to shops and restaurants as prices in the hotel especially for drinks are high (pint was over £7). The deck bar food and sushi restaurant are excellent and breakfast in the buffet restaurant very good. Staff are all very pleasant and happy to help. We booked DBB and then found the hotel had a 40 euro pp per day offer for dinner and all drinks from 7pm to 10pm which would have been worth doing if we had only booked B&B. Entertainment was good especially DJ and band on Wed and Sundays, but all music stops at 10pm, probably because of children staying, but the drink prices make you go to bed early anyway! Excellent diving definitely try Horseshoe.

Right on the beach

Nice hotel, clean, food was nice, safe in the room, 24h security, pool is small but no one is using it anyway as hotel is located right on the beautiful beach. Short walk to local shops and bus stop that can take you to Victoria - really cool to use local transport. Staff is slow, it takes time to receive menu or drinks, but that's just how all people is seychelles are. It was not a problem to check in at 7am. but we didn't get welcoming drinks. I guess it was too early :) Nice to have fresh coconut on the beach served by locals for only 50 rupies or to go on boat trip for 100 euro per person. There is a guy name Barry that can offer you that and it's well worth it; overall I'm happy to recommend

Gefallen hat uns nicht, das unser Meerblick unterbrochen wurde von dem Aussenlift. Die Lage und der Strand hat uns sehr gefallen
