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...

Wow! what a gorgeous hotel. You really couldn't get closer to the beach if you wanted to! The design and presentation of this hotel is just awesome! It just oozes quality in every sense!

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... More

We stayed for just one night in our stop at Praslin. The hotel is nice, not luxury but service is very good! The didn't have a triple room as reserved and they provided two rooms instead. The pool area is very nice. Breakfast is probably the low point, it could be improved with little effort. We would go back, especially... More

Great value and service. It isn't on one of the "most beautiful" beaches but the beach is very pretty nonetheless. The room was lovely. The food is good. Free parking and very helpful staff. I don't have a negative thing to say about this property. It was so nice to wake up every morning and hear the waves outside. Highly... More
