We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights to escape the desert for a few days. As we booked it in the heat of the moment we weren’t able to request a transfer from the airport to the hotel. Apparently the hotel needs to be advised 3 days before arrival about this requirement. They advised us to take a taxi...

Coral Strand is located on one of the most popular beaches, so a perfect holiday location. Only stayed for one night but a lot of options of restaurants on the property as well as close by. Very good service

We were 2 adults and 2 teenagers, booked 2 rooms for 6 nights with half-board. Overall we were happy with our choice. The rooms are nice and well maintained, and the beach is literally on the doorstep of the hotel and is beautiful. The sounds of the waves at night is especially soothing and special. The reception staff is outstanding!...

Everything was most satisfactory, the room was very comfortable, breakfast was very satisfying, excellent location on Beau Vallon beach. We also tried the Indian restaurant and the sushi bar in the hotel which were both very good.

We stayed here for one night on our last day as we had been on Praslin and had an early flight the next morning. I chose this hotel as I stayed here with my family over 20 years ago and it was convenient. The room photos also gave a good impression. Cost was over 180€. The check in was straightforward...

The hotel is perfectly located at the beach front. Rooms are very old an in need of urgent renovation. However it would be still possible to clean accordingly. Breakfast buffet whas excellent besides the annoyance that you have to pay for an expresso coffee. Food in the restaurants was always good but very pricy. Would choose something else next time.

Not a location for family with kids as the rooms are poor, have thin walls and the doors show light around the edges, you hear every single noise your neighbours make and people in the hallways. Loud noise from live music in the ocean view room. We were relocated 2x as we asked for an extra bed which was mentioned...
