We visited the Seychelles on a two centre holiday to celebrate my wife's retirement. The second week was at L'Archipel. The entire experience was wonderful, the beautiful suite, the pool and private beach and above all the restaurant. To top it all the level of service was exemplary. If you want to get away from it all in a superb...

Great hotel, lovely Individual bungalows and fantastic beach. Even though all beaches are public in Seychelles, due to the location this one is extremely private. Bungalows are spacious and well maintained, all with beautiful views. Where this hotel is let down is the service. Halfway through check in we were joined by another couple who had just arrived. This is...

L'Archipel was our first stop on a three week honeymoon in the Seychelles and we had 6 lovely nights here. The beach is indeed stunning, on our first morning I couldn't believe how clean and sparkling the beach was and the crystal clear water was to die for. Breakfast is fantastic - the best coconut pancakes ever! You really can't...

We stayed here almost two weeks for our honeymoon. We've got a hilltop deluxe double room that requires you a little bit of exercise to get there, but the reward is a fantastic view of anse Volbert and Curieuse island that you can enjoy from the sofa on you private balcony. There is only another room downstairs in the same...

The hotel is a real find. We were given welcome drinks when we arrived and Eddy explained the facilities of the hotel in a very relaxed but personalised way. We stayed in room 807 Cousin. All the rooms are named after the islands in the Seychelles. The room itself was very spacious and beautifully presented with vibrant fresh flowers. We...

Excellent beach facilities: 1-2 seats canoes, stand up paddlers-only for the next 750 m distance, snorkeling (equipment free and available until 5 pm) Fantastic place at the very interesting north shore of the island Praslin. Poor snorkeling sites next to the beach - even if you go closer to the granite rocks left and right hand site of the beach....
