We stayed for our honeymoon, rooms are ok, could do with some modernizing. Beach is beautiful, food was fantastic. Drink prices are very expensive.Good value for money hotel, very clean. Beautiful country would definitely return.

Im more than happy with my stay for I can have access also in the swimming pool in Savoy Hotel which is more bigger than in Coral Strands. The housekeeping personnel also is very helpful. My only comment with the breakfast of the hotel, not so much variety w the foods. Anyway, my overall experience is great.

We spent a week at the Coral Strand in November. There are mixed reviews of the hotel so here are our pros and cons of the hotel. Cons: - The hotel is a little frayed around the edges. The architecture is rather 1980s, and the rooms are 3-star at best. The aircon tends to drip condensation. - checkin is a...

We decided to go to the Seychelles as it has been on the holiday list for a long time. The Coral Strand is in the best position on Beau Vallon beach - bang in the centre and where the softest, deepest powder is. You can walk out into the sea as far as you wish without the need for coral...

Perfect location with a beautiful view of the sea from the room, wonderfully relaxing stay. Peacefully. Beautiful beaches and the sea. It could be a little more variety of food, especially home made. It could be a little more variety of activities in the hotel and on the beach.

The location is the prime attraction being right on the beach, however the hotel (which is Russian owned) is a bit of a 70s throwback in design. If you are unlucky enough to have a 'mountain view room' then you will overlook the car park and some areas of uncleared rubbish. We had booked sea view rooms for the three...
