the hotel offers good value, friendly and helpful staff, the quality of evening entertainment could be improved. an airport shuttle would be a great asset, the little newspapers are great, greater advertising of the available use of the savoy would help.... overall a great stay

For the restaurant: Sit at the edge of the water, watch a sunset, cocktails and food better than expected for a larger, touristy feeling place. Great place to have out and chat with locals. I'd do it again.

Hotel location is fantastic, food was very good and mixed, pool is clean, rooms were more then enough (first room balcony was to the corridor but they moved me next day to pool view), staff service is slow. With improvement to staff it could be one of the best hotels i have been to.

The location of the hotel was very nice. Employees problem solver. The rooms are small but spacious. Rain shower inm bathroom is very nice. It's bad that drinking water does not just include in price.

This hotel is located in the heart of Beau Vallon right on the pristine beach with spectacular view of the sunset. Beau Vallon restaurants (including the two top rated on the island) and amenities are just minutes away. The rooms were clean and tidy, but could stand a renovation. Air condition worked well, but pretty noisy. Live music in the...

We came here on our honeymoon and as soon as the car drove us in, I was hoping he brought us to the wrong place... The place itself is ugly and extremely dated. There were a fair amount of people in the lobby complaining which is never a good sign. The elevator wasn't working but thankfully we were just 1...

The hotel staff was very polite and cooperative. Loved the pool plus ocean view from our balcony. The rooms are not too big but very cozy, clean and well maintained.

The original Coral Strand opened in 1972 as one of the first hotels on the Seychelles.

The last 40 years have seen a steady stream of return guests. The hotel bar with its live music has established itself as a legendary meeting point for tourists and locals. The original hotel was completely reconstructed and renovated with new design, equipment and contemporary comfort. The service offer was also completely reorganized.
