    Very central location and view of the sea is amazing. Clean apartment. Only negative is that the living space and bathroom is open with only slatted doors to the outside eg: no windows to close meaning that the mosquitos/insects get in to apartment making sitting in the lounge uncomfortable on an evening and risk been bitten whilst using the bathroom. Fortunately the bedroom has windows and solid doors which keeps out the insects.

    Good location , large room

    A lovely apartment, great location across the road from the beach and a short walk from the "village". Having come from sleepy La Digue the road was very busy and noisy at times especially on Saturday night into the small hours ,handy though that the local bus stop was outside the front door . In comparison to the other two properties we stayed in we felt that it was a little overpriced for self catering accommodation and that breakfast should be included in the price paid. The biggest disappointment was that the management decided to change our air conditioning unit on our last evening . Why any property would choose to do this at 5pm when guests are returning from days out is very puzzling . We were offered another room but since we were leaving the next day it would have been too much upheaval to move . The most alarming point however was the fact that despite having been lectured on security and to make sure everything was in the safe and doors were locked ....the door was left unlocked by the staff after they had finished their work and we were out for dinner . Very disappointed and irritated at the lack of respect for our security . It was a shame as otherwise the positives outweigh the negatives.

    Absolutely wonderful,we had room 4 which is one the first floor furthest left on the photograph and the view to the beach is amazing. There is a small supermarket nearby and several beach restaurants but best of all the beach just across the road is the best we have ever seen!!! We will return

    I will recommend this place.

    Great stay. Spacious, clean appartment. Good location almost on the beach ( a road in between - didnt disturb us ) Friendly and helpful staff. Whish for just a little bit bigger beach towels and not signing them in and out and a small drier for clothes in the balcony, just these small things. Nice atmosphere. Small supermarket nearby and some good restaurants. All you need ! Will recommend this place.

    Ligger precis vid stranden som är 2,5km lång. Här finns lite restauranger och affärer att handla mat i.

    Underbart boende

    Fantastiskt boende. Rent å fräscht. Trevlig personal. Nära restauranger, affärer. Strand mittemot. Men under december månad som vi var där så var det höga vågor så för de med små barn inte så lämpligt under denna period. Vi hyrde bil å tog oss till mycket finare stränder med lugnt hav.

    Óptima relação qualidade preço

    Condições bastante agradáveis, ambiente acolhedor, os serviços de limpeza foram fantásticos em termos de arrumação e limpeza todos os dias, staff muito prestável e simpático, internet funciona muito bem, localização fantástica, vista para a praia, zona envolvente com bons restaurantes e supermercados. Como ponto de melhoria, apesar da cama ser bastante confortável, o colchão poderia ser melhor e podiam colocar rede mosquiteira na janela da casa de banho.

    Sehr charmente Unterkunft

    Wir hatten diese Unterkunft sehr kurzfristig gebucht, lief aber alles reibungslos ab. Bei Ankunft hat uns Emelia sehr freundlich begrüßt und alles erklärt sowie Empfehlungen für Aktivitäten, Restaurants, etc gegeben. Das Zimmer an sich war liebevoll eingerichtet, perfekt für eine romantische Zeit mit dem Partner (hier hat sich jemand viel Mühe gegeben und einiges durchdacht) Sehr komfortable Betten und eine sehr gut funktionnierende AC (ein muss auf den Seychellen) Die Unterkunft war insgesamt sehr gepflegt und sehr sehr sauber, jedoch hatten wir an 2 der 3 Nächten unerwünschte Krabbeltiere in dem Apartment (ist halt so auf einer Insel) Das free wifi war super und schnell, das beste das wir bis jetzt auf unserer Reise auf den Seychellen hatten. Der Strand ist super, kaum Algen oder Menschen vorhanden, sauber, in unseren Top 3 auf Praslin. Super Lage des Hotels da viele gute Restaurants, Shops, Supermärkte und Aktivitäten in der Nähe die alle gut per Fuß erreichbar sind. Bushaltestelle direkt vor der Tür erlaubt für sehr gute Transportmöglichkeiten. Man kann auch über das Hotel problemlos ein Auto mieten (ca 40 euro pro Tag, auch für 1 Tag mietbar) hierbei hilft das sehr freundliche und sehr zuvorkommende Personal. Das einzige Manko: am Wochenende sammeln sich die Lokals mit ihren Autos und dessen Soundanlagen am Strand direkt gegenüber- hier kann es vielleicht auch mal lauter werden bis spät in den Abend. R würdden definitv wiederkommen.
