Nice hotel
Overall it was a good stay. The beach area was beautifully built with a platform to look out to the sea. Sunbeds were available too. We booked the superior room, which was very lovely decorated and clean. Only the kitchen was full of ants, but they were always wandering up and down the same wall and didn't really get in the way (still wonder why they were there, because there was no food or anything that would have attracted them). A/C was available in the bedroom and worked very well. Their restaurant Capricorn was open, however, the service was extremely limited. They almost didn't have any liquors for the cocktails and their wine selection was scarce, too. When we wanted to have breakfast on the first morning, they said we should have informed them the evening before so they could organize it, although nobody told us beforehand. Still, the owner made us some small but lovely breakfast with cut-up fruit, toast, self-made banana jam (which was delicious!) and egg of our choice, but we were shocked when we got the bill (600SCR / 35€ for two people!!) Nonetheless, we had a lovely time at the Islander Hotel and appreciate everything they did for us (even organized a the car rental for us)!

Nice and quiet family hotel
Nice and quiet family hotel consisting of clean reasonably spacious 2 bedroom duplexes. There is a good on-site restaurant and direct access to a beach and also a nice seating area overlooking the beach. The staff are really nice and very responsive and helpful. Highly recommended.

Amazing Hideout
Special place for anyone looking to wind down with their loved one. Nice and away from any noise or hassle. One of the best beaches in Praslin, a 200M walk from your room. Amazing staff. Stop wasting time and book it.

This is a beautiful Guesthouse right on the beach. They have a restaurant & rental cars on site. It is far from the preferred snorkeling beach, but a rental car will get you there & it is on the bus route. My biggest dislike is the additional charge for the A/C - it was the only place I stayed in Seychelles that charged to use it. Room includes a kitchen & has a nice porch.

Ideal für Ruhesuchende
Diese Apartmentanlage liegt direkt an einem idyllischen Strand, von wo man jeden Abend den Sonnenuntergang beobachten kann. Auch zum Schwimmen und Faulenzen ist die Bucht sehr gut geeignet. Den Zugang zur berühmten Anse Georgette (fußläufig) bekommt man beliebig oft durch eine telefonische Voranmeldung über die Hotelleitung. Die Doppelbungalows liegen in einem tropischen Garten, zu dem auch ein kleines Schildkrötengehege gehört. Die Inneneinrichtung ist zwar etwas in die Jahre gekommen, wird aber sorgfältig gepflegt und sauber gehalten. Bei Regen kann man wunderbar auf der überdachten Terrasse sitzen. Auf Anfrage bekommt man Strandtücher gestellt. Eine Bushaltestelle und auch ein Supermarkt, in dem man alles Nötige zur Selbstverpflegung erhält, liegen unmittelbar am Eingang der Anlage. Zum Gelände gehört auch ein Restaurant, das wir aber nicht genutzt haben. Es gibt keine Störung durch Straßengeräusche, stattdessen hört man die Vögel und nachts die Flughunde sowie die Brandung. Wenn man bei Dunkelheit die Sterne beobachten möchte, sollte man eine Taschenlampe dabei haben. Für die An-und Abreise braucht man ein Taxi, das vom Hafen 25 Euro kostet, vom nahe gelegenen Flughafen weniger. Ein Auto ist auf der Insel nicht nötig. Man erreicht alles bequem per Bus, der pro Strecke, egal wie lang, 7 Rupien kostet.

unser Aufenthalt auf Praslin
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Tägliche Reinigung und auch unser Geschirr wurde gespült. In der Rezeption konnten wir Ausflüge buchen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sebst der Gärtner ist äußerst freundlich und hält den Garten wunderbar in Ordnung.

abitazione ospitale
abitazioni comode in complesso vicino al mare, ma senza spiaggia vicina. cucina ben equipaggiata con possibilità di cucinare in modo autonomo. macchina obbligatoria. personale disponibile ma non sempre gentile. il ristorante è piuttosto caro rispetto ai (pochi) altri vicini. nella prenotazione era indicata la colazione inclusa ma non c'è stato modo di ottenerla sebbene ciò sia poi stato rimborsato da expedia.

Guest house très bien situé tout prés d'une plage.
Nos avons séjourné ma femme et moi dans ce guesthouse pendant 5 nuits. Nous avons trés bien été accueillis par Miette la propriétaire. Le prix des chambres est assez correct. La propreté est de rigueur et le chalet est trés spacieux. Grande chambre à coucher avec un trés grand lit une grande salle de bain. La kitchenette est suffisamment grande et rien ne manque. Le complexe est juste au bord d'une belle plage de sable fin (anse Kerlan). Il y a aussi à proximité une supérette un loueur de voiture des magasins de souvenir et un trés bon take eway pour ceux qui un ont budget serré. Pour ma part je n'ai pas mangé dans leur restaurant mais tous ceux qui y ont mangé avaient beaucoup apprécie. Par contre leur petit déjeuner est assez varié et trés copieux et en plus avec le grand sourire matinal de Josianne. Bref avec ou sans enfants je vous conseille d'y aller. En plus Miette et Josianne de nature discrètes sont trés bonne conseillères pour les sorties à faire ou pour les randonnées à effectuer.
