Lovely quiet resort on Praslin
Does what it says on the tin. Private beach, great location, helpful staff - only slight drawback is the food options are a bit limited. This was our second visit and it lived up to our expectations.

L'Archipel is the only hotel in a very nice beach (Anse Gouvernement) so you will be able to enjoy this natural wonder without disturbance. The hotel is well integrated with Praslin natural beauty. Hotel staff is very friendly and happy to help with any of your requests - from excursions to taxi arrangements. Rooms can be located quite close to the beach, so you can fall asleep while listening to the sea and the sounds of all the island birds. I was impressed with the high cleaning standard and the two daily upkeeps of our room - as this hotel is integrated with nature it is quite difficult to keep the insects at bay, something that the hotel managed quite successfully.

8/10 Very good

It was a good stay, the staff friendly just that the kitchen closes early for dinner n you cant have late food after 9;30pm. Also the lady at the reception,Christa is very rude and shouts at us. That was a turn off as the receptionist should be warm n accommodating.
