We stayed for our whole stay on Seychelles (10days) at the Indian Ocean Lodge and it was a great choice. Everyone was very friendly, the food was very good and the location amazing. Really not a lot of people there, sometimes we were alone on the beach right next to the hotel! On the other side of Praslin there are...

Location wise, can't ask for more.... right on the beachfront unfortunately one can't take full advantage of the beach during high-tide, as their no space left on the beach... so do make a note of that.... good size pool, room size are adequate with good shower/bathroom facilities... Complementary Tea/Coffee in the room... now the down-side... only one restaurant which doubles...

My wife and myself have just stayed here as part as part of a two months tour. We spent 4 nights on a Bed and Breakfast basis. The majority of the other guests were staying on a full board package. Breakfast is good, excellent sausages. Room (34) was ok. The first evening we opted for the Creole buffet (35 Euros...

It's a great looking small hotel with lovely gardens, a pool beside the beach.You really couldn't get closer to the beach if you wanted to!Were there only for lunch. We loved the food and especially the lemongrass tea after lunch.

A great looking small hotel with lovely gardens, fantastic rooms and a small pool beside a wonderful beach. This hotel has so much potential to be great. Sadly, in our 2 night experience there, the quality of the food presented - at all meals was sub-standard & over-priced for a property of its layout, position and potential. The unclear murky...

Good food, even if the prices are a little high for tourist outside the resort. They have outside pool very nice. But the beach in front of the resort is not so great. Grande Anse is not one of the greatest beaches in Praslin.

Stayed for one night with my son. The staff were welcoming, helpful and very friendly. They went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and were always available. This is one hotel which offers a taste of the friendly warm nature of the Creole people and of course the excellent local cuisine is to die for. Thank you everyone...
