a quiet place
The hotel itself is excellent. It consists of individual villas perfectly furnished in wood. We had booked the Tortoise villa which is very close to reception and ocean and it is huge. The rooms and bathrooms and terrace are enormous and wooden - superb. We had booked half board - it is a set menu. Breakfast is not rich and it is not a buffet. It takes long to prepare. It is supposed to start at 7 but starts at 8-8,30; Dinner is a set menu again - very limited choice but tasty; Staff is helpful and nice. There is no beach around the hotel unfortunately and this is the big problem. The small area next to the hotel is dirty; it is remote from mahe and there is no entertainment I wouldnt go again
I stayed here for 4 nights recently and had a really wonderful experience. Eden Island (10-mins from the airport) where you get the boat to the island from is really smart so we already felt safe and comfortable. As you pull up to the island (10-minute boat ride) you can spot the main restaurant and infinity pools nestled amongst the trees. On arrival they provided us with cold drinks and our bags were then taken to our incredible villa/treehouse. The villas have x2 bedrooms and huge balconies. The bathrooms are very modern and one of our bathrooms had a fantastic hot tub! The staff were very friendly and the day trip to Moyenne island that they arrange is an absolute MUST! It was one of the best things we did in the Seychelles (if you go say hello to 'Yellow' the Island dog and the hundreds of giant tortoises that roam the island). The x2 pools were gorgeous and I got some incredible videos with the infinity pool/ocean in the background. The only slight negative of the island is that the wifi is poor. You can access the wifi in the lobby but it will cut in and out. If you want Wifi in the rooms you have to pay extra and this is even worse quality than the reception wifi. Not a problem if you're looking for a holiday to switch off from the world but if you need to work it can be a bit of a problem.
Heaven on earth
We spent 3 night on the island in Zourit room and enjoyed every minute. The island is 10 min boat ride from meha (eden island marine) , we had a transfer from/to airport which worked well. Island is beautiful, you can get snorkling equipment & kayak with no charge. The staff were really great and replied to every request we had !! would definetly come again
Worth a look
Stayed over Christmas as part of a two hotel stay . Cerf Island is a quick ferry from the main island its ideal for couples and families looking for seclusion on a lovely beach location with opportunities to visit the local islands and sand banks. It has villas set on the hill with lovely views from the helipad. Rooms are adequate and the 2 bedroom villas represent good value for the location. If you want to do your own thing on a smaller resort it ideal , the staff are friendly though a little laid back . Breakfast is a good buffet with cooked dishes , dinner on half board is adequate with a change every day and served well from fish and meat given the cost its reasonable but not lavish and drink prices are reasonable for the location vegetarians should ask for dishes to be prepared before. Snorkeling and Kayaking is available without cost and it was enjoyable. The main pool is being renovated and the small pool is never too busy . Wifi is limited to reception and we bought a local sim which had a good signal. Maintenence should be better , though anything we needed was fixed promptly. Overall enjoyed it and offered a good convenient location and reasonable value would come back
No 4 star Resort! Food not good, Service unfriendly and agressive staff, the water by the hotel beach was dirty impossible to swim in. We got charged for the transfer to do the Covid Test which was not communicated prior. We paied 1500Euro more than other guests for the same. All in all a very disapointing experience
