Poor1.0 / 5
The worst experience at the most expensive price
The worst holiday I've ever had. For $1000 a night hotel this is what we got - a filthy room, a broken window which let in hundred of mosquitos + was a safety issue and when asked to be fixed was taped up with masking tape, constant power cuts which left you waking up in the middle of the night sweating as there was no air conditioning & we had to pack in the dark when we left at 5am due to no power, the food was terrible, $20 for blended veggies for our baby daughter etc. etc. I have never been so disgusted in my life, for a hotel charging >$1000/ day this is totally unacceptable

Good3.0 / 5
Very poor service, disappointing experience
The hotel itself is very beautifully located. It has one of the most beautiful beaches on Mahe. Hill villas have spectacular view and they are very secluded, which makes it a real paradise for those seeking an escape from busy life. The hotel offered us early check-in which was nice. However, the staff at the banyan are completely unprepared for 5 star hotel. Lack of training, laziness and complete ignorance are very apparent in this hotel. Service is exceptionally slow and apathetic, which kills the entire banyan tree experience. I stayed in banyan tree in Maca, China at least 8 times before but you can't even compare the service there to the one in Seychelles. On our last day we ordered a buggy for 12 o'clock and taxi for 12.15pm - of course buggy did not arrive on time and a receptionist was extremely rude and neglecting. Buggy arrived at 12.30 and it turned out that our taxi had never been ordered. We complained to them, but they just said lousy sorry and still did not take any action. If I had time I would have asked for the manager of the hotel because such treatment is not acceptable even in one star hotel. Overall banyan tree is a beautiful resort, seriously lacking on service standards. If you go there, just go for the views but expect 1 star service and very, very negative attitude of the staff. It is also an overpriced place where food is not worth it's price, not to mention the service. Better choose Four Seasons for the same price but better value.

Excellent4.0 / 5
Best beach ever as well as the view
We have stayed 2 nights in the hotel. They upgraded us and arranged us many nice things. Everything was perfect except the small bags out of villa next to the pool and many ants outside which was not harmful at all. Inside the villa especially the second night some small bags were annoying us next to villa door but we have called the house keeping and asked them to clean the floor and to take care of the villa. Regarding in room dining, the food was not nice in the first night but in the second night it was delicious. The buffet next to the pool was not nice and was too expensive ( more than AED1000 for 2 person)

Amazing
Loved it all! Perfectly beautiful! We stayed in the ocean view hill-view (cheapest room) and it was stunning! I'm not sure I would have even preferred a beach-side room because you wouldn't getting the view that we had. This place is so luxurious and the staff is so wonderful. I love the Banyan Tree!

Fair2.0 / 5
Beautiful but overrated
In a premium price group, and considering the level of service that the Banyon Tree group is know for, this was a less than desirable experience. From the moment of arrival, the staff was very uninterested in making you feel welcome. At the beach, an attendant was asked to bring a bottle of water, and the response was "well I'm busy, but you can walk down the beach and get it yourself". And that, quite frankly, was one of the better experiences with the staff. The rooms, by comparison to other premium 5 star properties in the Seychelles (or elsewhere for that matter) were rather small. The amenities were ample and the layout was good, but the room itself was rather small for the price range. Room service was decent, when they actually answered the phone. Trying to find a ride by golf cart to your room, which is a necessity for most rooms, can take you 20 minutes or more to wait. The restaurants were excellent, albeit extremely pricey, which is to be expected in the Seychelles. The beach is long and beautiful, although the area is very prone to undertow and I cannot imagine taking a child to this beach. It is dangerous even for adults. All considered, a very overpriced property with beautiful views and below 3 star service. Would not stay there again. Way way way overpriced for the level of service.
