Carana Hilltop Villa, Mahe Island
Top of hill Mahe
We arrived to the villa after check-in time and the host Irene greeted us with two glasses of juice and a welcoming introduction. Everything went smooth from then on, we could always count on her help. We did not manage to try home-made cuisine or the designated restaurant and beach of Carana but that's only because we chose this place for Beau Vallon / Victoria proximity and driving around (highly recommended by car especially as this charming villa is located on top of a hill as the name suggests). The room and space around is just as the pictures show it, maybe with exception of the pool as it is quite short 5x3m, and seems like not all the surfaces are covered by tiles (maintenance?) The room had a fridge TV a small balcony an interesting rocking chair and a very spacious bathroom with tub. (Room 2 it was). For the sensitive: interior of the villa is not air-conditioned and the steps of the staircase can be a bit short for some. During our short 2 night stay we didn't get to fully enjoy the hospitality of very friendly hosts and staff, but we sure made the most of it with the help of Irene and her map we fully indulged into Mahe. + bottles of water and help with luggage - wifi could use an upgrade

Great Hotel
The personal attention I received from the staff was phenomenal. No only was our room constantly taken care of, but the staff went out of their way to ensure we were not bothered.

Very Good8.0
Is modest especially if you have small children
We enjoyed our stay in the hotel in general. It's location without a car is tiresome climbing the hill. The hotel is run like a family set up not professionally as expected. That makes it good with children. Some people like this family like set up while others may not. Sometimes they would even forget the real food you ordered by midday and replace it with readily available. We were surprised that they changed bed sheets weekly after reminding them. I can't remember getting any soap for bathing apart our first day. May be you can ask for that, we didn't ask. The food is very expensive and no varieties available. Paying €25 per person and €10 per child is really high in that island. The food was nice. The lady is friendly and the husband is cool. They assisted us with padlock when we forgot to carry our bunch of keys.
