It's one of the older Seychelles hotels and in areas that shows, it's a little bit shabby and dated. The fabulous setting and friendly staff more than make up for this.
We were welcomed with a cold flannel and fresh juice and sat in the lobby for check in (much nicer than the usual check-in desk) and the porter would not let us lift a finger. The lobby and main bar are open and so take full advantage of the tropical scenery.
Rooms are very spacious and though a bit dated are immaculately clean with great sea views (some have lagoon view). The mini bar isn't stocked - you can phone room service to have it stocked with your choice of bevvies or just use it as a fridge. The separate lounge area was good and gave the feel of a junior suite.
As we were on b&b we ate in both the main buffet restaurant and Coco de Mer (poolside). Both were good, not exceptional, but good standard of food and friendly service. The Spiced Red Snapper with passion fruit sauce (in Coco de Mer) was fabulous! Raffles Bar offered friendly service, great views and (for a hotel) reasonably priced drinks.
Entertainment was low key and the latest night we had was 12.00 but you don't go to the Seychelles for the nightlife!
This isn't the best hotel I've stayed in and the 4* rating is 'generous' but I thoroughly enjoyed my holiday - this is a well staffed, friendly hotel in a beautiful setting.
