We spent marvelous days in the honeymoon suite. The photos are absolutely realistic. Great interior, well-kept, the view, the sound of the ocean, big bathroom with plenty of room for cosmetics, amazing shower. Everything is very clean. We found the suite with wonderful decoration. Truly stunning.
Air-conditioning works very well, but if it was possible, a fan would be a great addition for sleeping.
The best is the beautiful park-like surroundings and slightly twisting paths to the houses - it creates an atmosphere of individuality like a little village. The location itself and the different houses are arranged spaciously and harmoniously. Water basins are decorated gorgeously. The pool area and beds are comfortable and clean. The access to the ocean is really good.
The restaurant with its ocean view and fresh air is a great place. We enjoyed our booked half-board a lot. Tasty and varied cuisine.
Above all, the staff was always very friendly, amiable and helpful - at the reception as well as in the restaurant.
Small supermarket and snack kiosks are nearby in walking distance. Also the jetty and beaches.
In retrorespect, it was the best place we stayed in on the Seychelles. Better than a 4-star hotel on Cote D'Or.
Thanks a lot again to the staff and we'd love to come back.

Had a great time at Colibri. Staff was friendly and attentive, room was great and view was fantastic! We had our two young children with us and they also felt very much at home. Would definitely consider going there again.

Dear Siddhesh
Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to write your review. We are sorry that your experience fell below your expectation. We try to provide excellent value compared to similar establishments in the same price category. Our services and facilities are clearly provided in our hotel and room description.
I have to disagree with your comment that the room is "poor". We have in early December carried out a full renovation of your room and indeed all other clients who have since stayed in that room praise us for its quality. The "stuffy" feeling was due to the high humidity as rain fell daily during your stay in Seychelles.
I should also add that the Standard room that you reserved was originally without air-condition (and this was clearly provided in the room description). When we renovated and upgraded the room, we included air-condition for the added comfort of our clients. We have as a result increased our rates for this room category, but you enjoyed the extra service at no additional charge.
We have a much larger team than you indicate. Our property is large (5 acres) and our staff are discreet but present and available for our customer needs - which is appreciated by the vast majority of our clients.
Thanks again for staying with us.

Being withing walking distance to the jetty and bus stop, this resort offered me everything I wanted. Double room with kingsize bed, bathroom with stone shower, hair dryer, tea and coffee maker, TV, WiFI (for a fee), safe, fan, air-conditioning and a balcony with ocean views.
The Colibri Guesthouse is also home to a restaurant, located next to the pool, which offers beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. Enjoyed morning buffet breakfast and some delicious dinners.
The staff was very helpful with directions and island information.
So glad I chose Colibri Guest House for my Praslin stay.

We stayed tree nights at Colibri and enjoyed our stay very much. We did not have a rented car but had no problems getting around by foot or bus. The sun beds and possibilities to swim and snorkel was better than at places located by the beach. The room (standard room) was spacious and clean and the staff was friendly. It would be great if the guesthouse could have provided bicycles for the guests like we had in other places.
