This resort is beatiful with it's free roaming giant turtles and excellent snorkelling directly from beach at housereef. Staff is doing a good work, food is good and the swimming pool is of good size. It's quiet and you won't be disturbed by other guests. On the downside is a very small shower cabin, no wifi in room ( wifi...

Although the hotel is a bit old and doesn't have a luxury feel to it, the bay on which it is located is stunning, and provides some of the best and easiest snorkeling in the Seychelles! The excursions were also good. Restaurant wasn't very good. Overall, we had a great time there for a reasonable price.

We traveled a family of 5, 2 adults 3 children on a 9 day family vacation. Arno the manager was kind enough to let us all stay in one room even though protocol says we would have needed to split up. That is the attitude of this hotel for good and for bad. Management is very laid back...Some work very...

We spent almost a week here and really find this location very enjoyable! We loved the excursions organized by the hotel, which seemed better than the ones organized by the tour agencies in town! The boat shuttle service made it fairly convenient to go to town. The hotel staff were very friendly and courteous. They helped us arrange a rental...

The only great interest and value of this hotel is the fantastic snorkelling location : great lagoon, and nice beaches. The hotel infrastructures are old and definitely need renovation to satisfy the 3 stars. One example is the bathroom with a very tiny and small shower cabin, that my husband could not fit in... Services, Staff competences and kindness are...

Your "own" beach? Emerald waters to snorkel? Lush garden? Calm? Not ready to pay the 5* service? Then this is your spot. Pick one of the villas on the seafront, take the ground floor that comes with a veranda if you like that. Boat shuttle is regular and takes 15 minutes. Beach is clean as all the rest. Room outfits...

It is the snorkeling that makes it worth to choose this Hotel . Snorkeling is worldclass. The naturralist biologist guide was good and a big pluss for this place. Breakfast and desserts are poor. Dinner is ok. Water and other drinks are very expensive ! The bed smelled.
