Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The property does not look like pictures at all. It is very old hotel and the food is terrible. We also had to prolong the stay because of testing positive. While being isolated in the room, the reception service was not the best. They were very dismissive and slow.

Good location but really needs to be renovated. Cleaning staff need better equipment. Feet and socks become brown from floor in hotel room. Food not matching the prices.

Not worth the cost
The hotel is in definite need of updating. The general cost of Seychelles is very expensive; however, the value for this facility was not there. The location is really the only benefit, but if I knew beaches were truly public I would've stayed a little farther away. Initially we received a room that had a very strong odour of mold. The staff were good to show us another room, but it had a similar smell so we had to go to a third room. The staff try to keep the facilities clean, but it really needs to be renovated.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
An older style hotel, which provided all we needed especially its lovely position on the most fantastic beach in the world. Soft sand and no stones in the sea and lovely warm water.Food was varied and very tasty with nice relaxing service with inexpensive Seybrew beer and wine and a good selection of cocktails.Staff were all relaxed and very pleasant and the locals on the beach and over the whole island were very nice.
