The Raffles hotel in the island of the Seychelles was a really sad and terrible experience! Falling apart are best two words to describe the situation it is currently suffering from. A failed management was to be blamed. The service/Professionnalism of the staff is quite eye opening in the worst way imaginable The staff are rude with no training whatsoever for a so called luxury hotel. You feel they are being overworked therefore the effort and kindness naturally disappeares. It's so bad that it becomes difficult to explain it in a few words. A staff member that complains to their guest how bad things are in the resort tells a story by itself. Food is quite a bad one too. Keep in mind our visit was after they started re-opening during Covid-19. One of the two restaurants in the resort was permanently closed. The choices of dishes and preparation was absolutely not acceptable and we tried to avoid eating at the hotel, leaving us with one option in the whole island of Praslin, "Cafe des Art" which still was a more decent venue compared to the hotel saved us for a few days at least its view overlooking the sunset did. What would you call a hotel that would serve you a big glass bottle of water without any glasses of water or paper cups! There excuse was it isn't allowed. So we have to drink from the glass bottle. Who came up with this useless idea. All this with an attitude too making it even worse. My partner got electrocuted by opening a light switch in the garden after

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Location and property is stunning, however for a 5 star resort there were things that could definitely improve. Food was 3 star at best quality, deck boards in my villa were coming up, chips on coffee glasses at breakfast...etc. For paying this price every night you’d think the hotel would prioritize upkeep of the hotel.
