If you want to be treated in a cold way, if you want to be lied to your face, if you want to sleep on a sheets covered with million stains on it, if you want to dry yourself with a stained towels, if you wan your child to get a rash the next morning, if you want to be...

They cancelled our reservation the day before of our arrival with no explanation. The worst experience in my life. We went there and is in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully we founded another hotel and it was much better for the same price

We had a terrifying and horrable stay at this hotel in january 2017 and we really believe that you should think twice Before you book any room here. We do not expect perfect service in room nor perfect food in restaurant. That really doesn't matter, what we experienced during our stay is beyond Everything. First we got a room without...

I don't think they will mind all these negative comments that customers had experienced. First of all we have no choice. Chez Batista is the only resort there. Takamaka is indeed the most beautiful Anse in Mahe Island and is perfect for wedding. We took the Presidential suite(most expensive room) and we regret it. First of all, it is not...

Apart from the beautiful view and the clean beach, nothing worth spending your time and money here. The food is limited to just few options all with fish. Breakfast is average, good moctails though. If you wanna explore nearby area you need to climb up which is very exhausting. There is one restaurant nearby hotel not very close though but...

As I've mentioned in other Seychelles reviews, the fact that few, if any, of the Seychelles beaches are 'swimmable' really ruined the experience for me. Couple that with the fact that the SCUBA diving was some of the worst I've seen (I have 440 dives in my log book(s)) and I was disappointed and frustrated. This beach was no different....

Thanks to Marco Pross Events for making our destination wedding truly unforgettable. We had been upgraded to a sea-facing Junior Suite for our 5 night stay where we enjoyed the breathtaking view right in front of our doorstep. We work in a 5-star hotel who fully understand the services to expect from a 3 star resort and are really pleased...

I read the opinions and knew what to expect. The beach is beautiful, and I agree with the previous opinions: is one of the best on the island. I also agree that the place needs renovation, and the breakfast sucks. The dinner is served super early. You need a car to move and go somewhere. The prices on the menu...

So we stayed here for the first few days of our honeymoon. Honetly it was the most beautiful beach. There were a large variety of room to stay in and although we got upgraded to a suite, I wasn't happy with the room. If you stay there I would suggest paying more to getting a room better than ours.

I was attracted to this hotel the moment I saw its thatched roof and wooden carving in a picture. I decided my husband and I would stay there and immediately booked the hotel. When we reached there, I couldn't believe I was finally at the place I had seen on a website! The reception room was hard to find; but...
