This is a tricky place to review, but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. One of the best things about it was the really helpful and friendly “main man” Pradeep. We actually thought he was the manager he seemed so well in control of everything. Other staff we met were really friendly, too. We had a huge apartment with everything...

Thank you for a fair review. Our entire staff works tirelessly to deliver an excellent value for money product. I must under state, the character of the setting convinced us to develop this lovely corner of paradise as an eco resort. Hence, it is not in the center of the main town or tourist zones. These areas also are frequented...

I booked this hotel because the trip was planned at the last minute, it was peak season and by this time most of the hotels were fully booked or really pricey. I would not stay here again, the hotel is badly situated, at the far end of the Island. Its far away from everything and you cannot walk at night...

We understand the financial strains of SOUTH Africans travelling to Seychelles these days. There currency has devalued by 60% while the Seychelles Rupee has gained strength by 30%. This makes a holiday to Seychelles about 90% more expensive. Hence , we fully understand the gripe and venom in the comment. Example a fish filet in South Africa will cost you...

Thank you for an over all accurate review. It is much appreciated. The ungraded units however and a completely different product once you are inside. Hence the difference in price from the self catered budget units. They are popular with guests wanting to spoil each other. The units have no kitchen, hence price comes with breakfast for two.

Our bungalow was fine with a balcony overlooking the bay. Lots of birds and wildlife and very restful. It was self-catering but the nearest shops are over a mile away so you need a car or can take a bus. They do not have bike hire which was a pity as you can ride to the nearest town about 4km...

Thank you for the review. Iles Des Palmes is an Eco resort. It is an establishment intended for guests who want a nature experience. If a guest is looking for proximity to the Indian shops and traffic there are numerous guest houses that offer this inconvenience. Bike rental and car rental is recommended. A car rental will cost €40.00 -...
