8/10 Very good

Would go there again :))
Amit, the property manager, was very helpful, kind, and accommodating. The bungalow was very spacious and quiet, although it could use a little renovation. Breakfast was excellent, and we tried both lunch and dinner... very good. The location is ideal if you are looking for a quiet place, surrounded by nature. No TV in the bungalows, and wi-fi connection only in the common areas, near the pool and lounge. Kayaks are also available to visit nearby private beaches. Better to have a rental car.

Romantic beach bungslows
The staff is very friendly, attentive and accommodating. We were well taken care of from check in to the great chef. The property has a well attended tortoise pen. The beach view air conditioned villas are spacious and very clean. The property is in a romantic and secluded setting, away from the main tourist strip and super close to one of the best reefs on the island. Brigitte and Steven

Pleasant stay
Beautiful location and lovely chalet. Needs to provide more shade at the pool area, which was just too hot most days. No umbrellas! A few issues initially like no light in one of the bedrooms, no pans to use in the oven and a sink plug that didn't work - but once reported to reception these were dealt with immediately. Would benefit from more fans in the chalet or aircon.

6/10 Good

Molto bella la camera e ottima vista sul mare (non balneabile). Peccato per la mancanza dell'aria condizionata, assolutamente fondamentale alle Seychelle! Molto bella anche la location e il verde nel quale è collocata la struttura. Ottima la cucina del ristorante della struttura anche se i prezzi erano abbastanza alti.

Nice hotel but need some improvement for the price
The hotel is nice (beautiful swimming pool, charming chalets, nice area) but it’s expensive for what we get : no air conditioning in the chalet, the bathroom must be refreshed (very old). Also the restaurant and the bar are very very expensive. We ask for a kind attention as it was our honey moon but we had nothing special. Also be careful : you can’t swim at the beach

Cadre idyllique chambre très rustique
La piscine de l'hôtel est magnifique avec transats juste au dessus de la mer et superbe bar. Par contre tarifs bar et restaurant élevé. Personnel adorable (ils sont presque tous Népalais!). Par contre dans les bungalow c'est assez rustique surtout la cuisine! Pas de wifi dans la chambre et pas de clim (juste grand ventilateur). Mais bel espace pres de la piscine et lounge extérieur où on capte wifi (gratuit). Emplacement de l'hôtel en pleine nature, sur place tortues de terre, hérons, énormes crabes terrestres.

Fantastico Resort immerso nella natura
Ottima Junior Suite, sul mare (non sfruttabile per starci di giorno), aria condizionata, letto comodissimo, ampi spazi, presente un bollitore, bagno pulito e funzionale. Resort immerso nella natura con poca illuminazione (meglio avere una torcia) che ti permette di godere del magnifico cielo stellato. Grandi granchi nei prati, ma soprattutto recinto con meravigliose tartarughe giganti di terra. Personale cortese e disponibile, buona colazione con frutta e uova servita nel ristorante che sia affaccia sulla piscina sul mare. Comodo parcheggio, meglio affittare un'auto per girare l'isola. Wifi ottimo nella zona ristorante/piscina.

Hôtel calme et personnel accueillant
Hôtel est situé dans un endroit calme. L'aménagement des espaces communs (salon commun, piscine, bar, restaurant ) est très agréable le tout face à la baie. Le personnel est accueillant, reste discret et à l'écoute se prête volontiers à la conversation. Le seul dommage il ne parle que l'anglais. Le calme de l'hôtel est un avantage, mais il manque un peut d'animation ou ambiance (peut être dû à la période relativement peut fréquenté). La baie dans laquelle se situe l'hôtel et très jolie mais la baignade n'ai pas très agréable du moins en cette saison(mars) et du coté des bungalows "pirate" (présence d'algue et le fond est plutôt vaseux), du coté "colonial" la plage est un peut plus agréable. Petit point agréable la présence de raie observable sur le bord. Pour la baignade anse la blague et à 5mn en voiture.
Terrasse du bungalow
Salon cuisine (le rideau de la cuisine - trop court - ne permet de garder l'intimité de la pièce)

hotel de charme dans une nature préservée
Environnement très beau avec une vue magnifique un vrai coin de paradis. Les bungalows sont spacieux, le seul bémol c'est qu'il n'y a pas la climatisation, ni de moustiquaire et il fait vraiment très chaud en journée impossible de rester à l'intérieur et beaucoup de moustiques en soirée. la plage devant les bungalows n'est pas la plus jolie, beaucoup d'algues pour se baigner. Belle piscine avec un beau panorama, avec chaise longue mais sans parasol impossible de rester longtemps au soleil. Dommage quelques parasols seraient vraiment nécessaires. Nous n'avons rien consommé, ni petit déjeuner, ni cocktail car les prix sont assez élevés pour l'endroit. Personnel agréable.
