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.

The destination of Seychelles for many people will be that out-of-reach, far too expensive, paradise destination that can only be achieved as a once-in-a-lifetime experience such as a Honeymoon or anniversary present. Yet, by staying at Hanneman Holiday Residence, it doesn't have to be, as this property is probably Seychelles' best-kept secret and its most economical. Hanneman's location is ideally placed on the island. Just a short and easy 5-minute walk to one of the finest and most famous beaches in the entire Indian Ocean, Beau Vallon Beach. It is no problem that Hanneman's doesn't serve dinner or lunch, as there are dozens of some of Mahe's best eateries and takeaways just a walk away. But even then, if you fancy a night in your villa, they arrange a delicious local food delivery service on request. You can even cook your own barbeque! Breakfasts are optional but recommended as the chef cooks up a great start to the day and can make most things you ask for, from a fully cooked plate to delicious pancakes. The villas themselves are first-class for the tropics. We were a party of 5 (2 adults, 2 teenagers, and a 6 yr old) and had so much space in the duplex. The air conditioning and fans maintained the coolness needed and with a huge kitchen, open plan dining room and living room, three balconies, and two en suite bedrooms we never got in each other's way. I would recommend that you rent a car (again can be arranged through Hanneman's) and you can park securely right outside of your room. The pool is a good size and despite the residence being full at Easter time when we stayed, we were the only people in it for most of the time - it seemed like our own private pool. And that's the essence of Hanneman's, although there are a couple of penthouses and studios and four duplex's - the place is never crowded. The security is impeccable, with 24-hour security personnel (David and Joe are the night watchmen) and electronic keys to come in and out of the properties at all times. But although the facilities are more than one could ask for, it is the people (and kittens and turtles - more on that at the end) that make a place special. Hanneman's is run by the most affable, personable, friendly, and humourous guy you can imagine. Manfred, a former hotel manager himself, is on hand to offer advice or help with anything his guests need, whether it's administration enquiries or extra water for the room. It is well worth sitting down with him for a coffee or a glass of wine to listen to his stories of Seychelles and his experiences in life. He is backed up by Santale, who runs the property like clockwork in the relaxed manner that most guests would like on holiday. Add to them, their team of housekeepers who make the rooms immaculate each day, and their fantastic Chef make Hanneman's #1 in Mahe. A last word to the four-legged friends who add more personality to the place. At the time of writing, a group of friendly kittens lounge around and only approach guests who approach them. If like us, you feed them, prepare to have these curious kittens visit you at mealtimes waiting outside your door for food and cuddles. And last of all, are the family of turtles, all named after the staff at the Residence, who you can feed and watch in their pen when lounging by the pool or having breakfast. Hanneman's is your home from home in the Seychelles - and somewhere where you will be treated like royalty, without paying a royal price!

We were really surprise after reading all the positive reviews to arrive in a appartement like that. It was old There was almost no light, only one window with a big useless furniture in front of it There was a lot of humidity with a terrible smell ABSOLUTELY NOT CLEAN ! (See the pictures) - the floor was covered with hair and dust, won't even talk about the corners - there was mold in the bathroom - the furniture and counters were filthy (I should have take the cleaning paper I used in picture 🤢) - all the equipment like microwave and toaster were probably never cleaned - there were dirty spots, hairs and one dead bug in the sheet 🤢 Owner adorable, good location, spacious appartement but clearly that all this place has, everything else is terrible, especially for 180€ /night ! We are glad we booked only one night, it was our last, what a last impression of the Seychelles...

It was our 4th time at Hanneman, and again we were not disappointed. Wonderful spacious self-catering in a hidden and secure area, 5 minutes walking to the beach. Again welcomed by Manfred and Santale who run this place already for ages. The place is really cheap for what you get, some 140m2 I suppose, main area and 2 detached bed rooms. They do also great breakfast at reasonable prices. In case you need anything, they support you, reserve tables at restaurants (e.g. highly recommended Perle Noire) or organise a rental car for some rupees. We will be back again, for sure!

Stayed with my family for a month, kid friendly an amazing environment. Loved the cats. The owner always making sure you are okay, the security guy took his job very seriously well done. Felt safe. The lady at the reception and the cleaning ladies all did a super job. Parking space. 5* Would highly recommend.

We were welcome with kindness of Mr Hanneman. The room is spaced, you have everything you might need in the kitchen, the bathroom and in the bedroom. You get to see the beautiful sunset by the balcony (Room 5)! 😍 we were amazed by that view. You get your room key with the gate key, so you can go in and out whenever you want. Even though we stayed there not for long but for sure i will take my family there next time. The beach and other restaurants are nearby, 15 min max. We really enjoyed our stay there. Everyone was nice.

When you come to Seychelles, you have one of two options at lodging. (1) You can stay at a very expensive resort with excellent service or (2) You can chose to self-cater at more reasonable rates. The Hanneman Holiday Residence gives you the best of both options. You have very comfortable apartments with all the amenities you need, and excellent service from Manfred, his wife and his staff. Manfred is a gentle and truly helpful soul that has given considerable thought to amenities that will make his guests comfortable. Free snorkeling equipment, free beach towels, currency exchange at the front desk, delicious made-to-order breakfast, free advice on best beaches and even advice on avoiding overpriced restaurants (and there are A LOT of overpriced, mediocre restaurants to avoid). The town of Beau Vallon is a few minutes walk south, along with a daily bazaar where you can enjoy fresh, local cuisine for between $7-12 a plate. There are shops nearby as well as Boabab Pizza, which is both reasonable and tasty. Victoria is only 10 mins drive away and there are plenty of beautiful trails within a short drive, and Mannfred will always guide you to the best ones depending on the weather. The Hanneman Holiday Residence is a great way to explore the island. It offers you the flexibility to enjoy Seychelles at your own pace. And Mahe island is beautiful enough where you should be out exploring, not feeling obligated to stay at your resort because you paid $2,000 a night for it. Some things to note: there is free wifi throughout the property. We stayed in a penthouse 1-bedroom which included a combination washer/dryer. There is no hair dryer in the bathroom, so confirm to have one before your arrive. Our bathroom had a convertible 110V-220V shaver socket. There is a fridge, coffee maker, water heater, dishes, pans, utensils, etc, everything you need to cook at home. The shower was nice, spacious and there was a shampoo and body wash dispenser in the bathroom. Overall, everything at the property is well maintained and clean. We had a long honeymoon where we stayed at Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, 5-star Safari lodges and Hanneman was our favorite stay.

My husband booked the hanneman holiday residence for our honeymoon to Seychelles. It was the perfect place to be at. The host, Manfred is a wonderful man. He is very welcoming and will make sure your entire stay is comfortable. He will also guide you very well about the do’s and dont’s in the area. The apartments are clean, comfortable and spacious. The kitchens are equipped with everything you need to self cater. However, the breakfast is very nice and I would definitely recommend getting the room with breakfast. The rooms have air conditioning and WiFi is free through the property and the rooms. They have a pool that is open for 24 hours. You can get beach towels from the reception every day and borrow snorkeling supplies too. We had a very comfortable stay and would love to stay here again if we are visiting Seychelles again. Thank you Manfred!

A family holiday with my daughters. Lovely spacious clean apartment with air conditioned bedrooms. Helpful friendly staff. A few minutes walk from the beach but pool on site. We self catered and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Were given lovely treat every morning though - banana fritters were delicious. Would recommend to anyone.
