Only one thing to mention. I had 2 bottles of wine in the fridge and the next day after im back from my day trip, i found one of the bottle was opened. Not empty , it was still full, but why it was opened? I asked about this to reception and i ve been told noone ever touched the minibar. Oh well. I remember i didint opened it , i didint have a wine opener, who did it then?

total relax
We had a very calm and relaxing stay in a nice natural environment. However, receptionists could have been more polite and available to answer our queries, not just call to remind us check out is at 10 am already (never experienced such an early timing and I have been travelling a lot).

4/10 Fair

Be aware of high humidity and mold in the rooms
The hotel was most likely very nice a few years ago, but now not maintained as desired. Our room smelled really bad of mold and the humidity in the room was very high, which gave us a pretty bad experience with the hotel. When informing hotel management about this, the response/support was more or less non-existing. In addition, the pool area can be better maintained - has a good potential. Sun beds and mattresses are very worn. Food is pretty good and the drinks tasteful at the bar, especially the fruit drinks in the evening. Fresh fruit not available during day time - negative! Only buffet food in the evenings and not possible to order from a la carte menu - negative. So, overall experience: not very good, but the potential is high to do something really good.

6/10 Good

good location, friendly staff, but, a thief
The room has a good location, the people are friendly, the breakfast is good. The only bad memory is that the first night, we went to the same hotel for dinner at 7:15pm, the time we went back from dinner at 8pm, the securities stayed around my room and reported that a thief might break into my room from a back window of the bathroom. I was luck because I locked my valuable stuff. Otherwise, I cannot imagine that what I would face with if in my first day in Seychelles, all cashes and cameras were stolen :-(
