Value
One of the first resorts in Seychelles, the 4-star Coral Strand Smart Choice was opened in 1972. The resort immediately won the hearts of locals and tourists, becoming an integral part of the island life. Coral Strand Smart Choice is located on the North West of Mahe Island, on the famous Beau Vallon beach, which stretches for several kilometers along Beau Vallon Bay. Fine sand, small waves and stunning sunsets make this beach truly special, like no other on the island. The resort is a great starting point for exploring Mahe Island and its main attractions: Morne Seychellois National Park, Marine Reserve, Botanical Garden and the capital of Seychelles - Victoria. It takes only 25 minutes by car to get from Seychelles International Airport to the hotel. The simple and uncluttered design of our guest rooms invites you to unwind after an active day spent outdoors. Coral Strand Smart Choice offers 164 guest rooms furnished with king-size or twin beds with the option of connecting rooms, all equipped with flat-screen TV with international TV channels, Wi-Fi, individual air-conditioning, shower, hairdryer and bathroom amenities. Guests can choose between a mountain view, which offers a breathtaking tropical landscape, or a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean. Start your day with an ocean view breakfast at Island Trader Restaurant. Dine at our gourmet Mahek Restaurant, servicing authentic Indian cuisine, or visit Coral Asia Restaurant, renowned for the best sushi and sashimi in the Seychelles. Our Ocean Deck Bar offers the best sunset views over the ocean. Indulge in tropical cocktails, local beers and the famous Coral Cheese Burger by the Chef. Seychelles is one of the most romantic destinations in the world, where the most beautiful weddings take place. This is also one of the places where the ceremony is held with the issuance of an official marriage certificate, recognized in most countries of the world. Coral Strand Smart Choice has great experience in hosting wedding ceremonies, including the organization of welcome cocktails, receptions, banquets or just a romantic dinner for two.

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 hotel was nice and comfy, had 3 different restaurant, food was awesome, favorites were seafood of course. Loved the beach with beautiful sunsets. Staff are very friendly. Best cocktails were made by Haseed and Arul at the Ocean Deck Bar. Special thanks to Nilantha, Tharindu, Janith, Chamika, Ezra, Bishnu and Chamara for an amazing service.. this is my second time here and would definitely visit again

Always a pleasure to stay at this hotel. We have stayed here at least once a year for the last 10 years. Access to beach and pool has been a priority for us and Coral Strand offer that. The staff are always friendly and helpful and the outdoor restaurant and bar looked after by Mr Nilantha is of top class. Thank you

The hotel is pricy but not a great value of money. Basic toiletries such as tootbrush, robes and even slippers are upon request. The receptionist missy is not that helpful we paid for an extended stay but was not informed to get our cards updated. We had a long day and were not able to access our room because of this. On the other hand food is great especially the octopus curry our fav!!! The sushi bar is also a must try vey accommodating staff jemmalyn.

At the end of January my wife me and my child stayed in Coral Strand. I’ ll start with the pros and there is only one: the location of the hotel has convenient access to the beach, we are very pleased with this. I’ll move on to the cons on the first day we were checked into a room with a broken air conditioning and with shabby furniture, we were moved only two days later. The second thing that really bothered me and my family was the cockroaches in the room, it was extremely unsanitary, there were no Russian speaking staff, the Charma manager answered us rudely, and when we expressed our dissatisfaction to him, he simply stood and batted his eyes and smiled. Also everyday we waited 40 minutes for a towel to be issued next to the pool. The manager does not cope with his obligations, and this is a huge minus for the hotel’s reputation, thank you very much for ruining our vacation. Decided to write a comment now so people would not do same mistake like us. We will not recommend this hotel to anyone!!!!!

have an sa 200 that the faceplate that was on it had serial number of what I have learned to be a 1973. I'm thinking it is older than that. Was wondering if there was any other way to determine year. The reasons I believe is older is the on/off switch, choke, and start button are all on back beside battery. And I have to push bar and stick pin in for it to remain on high idle. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
