Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Because of the unfortunate circumstances with Corona virus, I had to cancel my booking on middle of March with Vila De Roses in the last moment. I tried to contact the agency I made a booking with and ask for a refund, but they didnt seem interested to help me so I rech out to Ms. Claudia , who was very kind and made and effort to personally contact the agency and helped me to get a full refund. Even tought I didnt met her and stayed in their house, her efforts and good deed deserve every praise. And definitely when I will have a chance to visit Seychelles again, I will have no doubt where to stay, thank you!

Having it in good memory 2007 I chose it again in Feb 2019 despite having read rather average ratings before booking. I travelled with my girlfriend and our son, 3 years old. The property is panhandle as someone mentioned, in my eyes an advantage as one is separated from the street and the noisy pimped cars young Seychellois love to turn loud on the weekends, so it is really quiet. The spacious garden is well taken care of by Mohammed. The two sisters have been running the property for ages, offering one big and two smaller self catering appartments as well as 5 double rooms. We stayed on the ground floor in the bigger house in an two person apartment which offers a third bed for (free for a small kid or) a grown up. The apartment is quite large, kitchen, terace, living room, bedroom with A/C and bathroom with both shower and bathtube. The rooms are fine, could need some renovation like additional light bulbs but everything is clean and not worn down as described by some reviewers. This is probably an individual feeling but as I am not striving to the highest standards it was fine for me. Those who do should choose Maia or Banyan Tree resorts rather than a reasonably priced accommodation imho. The matress is very good as normally I suffer from thin hard matresses when being on vacation. The kitchen is fully equipped but we did not use it. I enjoyed the privacy, the sisters leave you alone and everything is easy going. If you need something, ask them and they will help. Every three days you get new bed sheets and linen and towels, every day except on Sunday they clean your apartment. Our apartment was not ready when we arrived shortly after 12 pm but they tried hard and to make up for the delay they offered us free internet which you normally get charged for. The breakfast is continental so expect toast, butter, marmelade, ham and eggs in different styles, sometimes sausages as well as tea and milk and juice. Nothing special, but on the beach you will find a lot of shops selling tropical fruits. On our last day we could stay in the room until late without extra charge, take a shower in the evening before departing for the late flight which made the last day of vacation much more comfortable, particularly with a small kid. I normally do not write reviews when travelling unless the stay was really bad but as this accomodation is not particularly well rated by others I felt like this is not fair and not reality. Claudia and her sister made our stay (11 days) really enjoyable and the appartment was simply good.

I really enjoyed my vacation at Villa des roses in beau vallon, this is a guest house very near to the beach .. just 5 minutes walking. The two ladies owning the place and the workers there are doing their best to keep the place in a very good state with a very lovely garden, my room was spacious with a big bed and a mini-bar, there is a free good wifi, the bathroom was really big with towels, soup and toilet paper, housekeeping is done every other day leaving the room really clean. They can also order an airport shuttle car for you, and can advise you of many things to do or many places to eat all around.This area is very quiet so you'll enjoy a good sleep. This guesthouse is also undergoing some refurbishment now to become even better, and they are adding more roses and flowers to their garden that I personally really admired. I went there as the recommendation of my mum and sister who previously had been there and enjoyed their vacation at Villa des roses. Again thank you to all the staff there for their kindness and their real friendly and helpful attitude, and a special "miss you" to dear Claudia from me, my mum Suzan and my sister Sarah

I stayed in room 6 (the right top room with the balcony in the picture) and stayed here for 8 nights for a diving trip. The dive centre had booked the accommodation for me and I was not disappointed even if I had some reservations after reading the reviews. The place is a basic guesthouse so don't expect resort quality. It is basically half way between the beach and the shops/atm at beau vallon and this was fine for me. The atmosphere is all very relaxed (sometimes you just need to ask if you need something. There is no real reception though so time your requests around breakfasts or simply go around the back and shout if you need something). There are some more permanent guests as well who seem to be around for most part of the day so the place felt quite safe. The room was self contained with a big and clean bathroom. The decor is a bit outdated but as long as it is clean... the room itself has AC, was clean to begin with, it was cleaned every day and got clean sheets halfway throughout my stay. There was only one sheet on the mattress so if you are squeamish you might want to ask for an extra set or bring a travel sheet. I didn't feel the need. The room has a small fridge which is quiet and there is a fan. No safe to put your valuables in though. There was also a TV in the room but only showing local channel so left to rurned off. I loved the small balcony which, if you place the chairs correctly gives a nice view to the mountains and gives a nice reading spot in case you get tired of sitting on the beach. Breakfast is really basic with a fried egg, some cheese or sausages, some toast, tea/coffee and juice. Some fresh fruit would have been nice though. So nothing special but if you don't need to stay on the beach, have a limited budget, then it's a decent guesthouse. Just remember that you are on the Seychelles and that you pay a lot for what you get, but in many resorts you pay even a lot more...

First impressions , not good, last impressions worse. Granted it was on the cheap side and thankfully only one night. Very small room, the bed was old with spring mattress that was uncomfortable. Open shower with stains all over, only one towel provided. The aircon made noise and could not be tampered with to adjust the settings. Outside noise with obviously the owners place about one meter away with no privacy. Water tank outside made continuous noise sounding like a toilet cistern filling up. I wont be going back there again even it it was cheaper

We stayed at Villa Des Roses for 5 days in October 2015. This small apartment is really beatiful and peacefull. Its room is very clean, bathroom is really well equipped, just 5-minute walk from supermaket or Bea Vallon beach. We'd certainly like to choose this apartment again.

Villa des Roses Beau Vallon Bay, Seychelles, Booked and advised the hotel we would be a late arrival on 7th June 08. Was assured on several occasions that this was fine. We arrived at 10.30pm to find the place deserted. We called, knocked, hooted, went to police station up the road and called their no. but to no avail, looked like it was completely closed. Building material laying around and "nobody home" No reception notice or where to find the reception, walked all around and all locked up. We eventually left and had to find a hotel at this late hour - needless to say we did not go back as it looked scruffy outside, so who knows what we would have found inside. BEWARE, Mahe is a lovely island, but beware of small beaches, there are thieves lurking in the thick undergrowth and they will rob you of your bags etc. I had the misfortune of this happening. I saw the robber still in the bush, pleaded with him to give back my bag, that I would give him the money, he just gave me a look and turned and climbed out of the extremely difficult position he was in, I was nervous to try and jump him, as a woman and tried to appeal to him, he gave me a look and ran down the road and disappeared into the bush. He watched us from the time we arrived I have no doubt - I lost bag, cameras, passport - everything even the car keys, had a long walk to try and find help and get the police. Apparently a lot of this going on, so please be careful! ( This happened at Police Bay, near The Banyon Tree Hotel.)

The accommodation has certainly seen better days, but is OK as it is quite cheap. The service is not there, however. No response to our inquiry before our arrival, on the day of arrival nobody knew that we were coming and last but not least the cheeky manner in which the owner communicated leaves no reason to recommend it. There are accommodations in the country that reflect the radiant joy of the country. But not here.
