“Nice and clean.Worth that money”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Coral Strand is a cute and nice hotel on the amazing beach.Staff is very friendly and helpful, they are really trying to wow you.Hotel itself is renovated few years ago, its ok, nothing special, but for that amount of money its good and very clean.Internet is very very poor all around the hotel and they cant fix the connection.Around hotel there's noting much, few restaurants and resorts.It can be a bit boring though.No nightlife, no bars, everything is dying around 10 pm.Hotel offers its own boat trips for like 200e but you can always find this guys walking on the beach and offering the same thing much cheaper (we paid 50e per person). All together its nice because everything is nearby and the beach is amazing.

Dear Sanjulina

Thank you for your review and comments, I will make a point of letting our staff whom we are so proud know. Seychelles is an island of tranquility but there are a few hot spots one can go to till early in the morning. (On your next trip I will show you). As for the excursions the hotel offers , these are run by professional third party companies that offer security, safety and comfort and would highly recommend.

I settled in seychelles together with my husband and my young son since May 2013. Before we had a house to rent, we temporarily stayed in that hotel.

The room was comfortable and restful, food was delicious, hygiene was impeccable and the staff in general was very friendly, especially Gina, a waitress from the restaurant of the hotel.

A great place to rest and for honeymooners!

Dear Uma
Thank you for your comments. Happy to hear we assisted you for a temporary dwelling while finding your feet on this beautiful island. A few things have happened since then including the new CoralAsia sushi restaurant, nightly live music entertainment and a complete menu change in all our restaurants with the additional “7 flag nation” lunch menu. I invite and welcome you back to try out our delicious meals, hospitality and atmosphere

Reasonably priced hotel. Food was great, the staff were friendly and polite. Hotel is near many amenities, including, shops, restaurants, car rentals, and bus station. Best beach in Mahe. I was there for 9 days, I will definitely go back there again.

Dear necsoi_cornelia
Thank you for giving the hotel 5 “stars” even though you experienced a problem at check-in as a result of a system error. Your subject line states “everything was great”, which is exactly what the hotel is aiming to achieve from all our guests that stay with us. Ongoing service training, continuous updating of menus, additional staffing and value added extras is just some of the things we are doing to ensure our guests satisfaction.

This hotel is set in the centre of one of the most beautiful beaches on Mahe island. The beach is popular and offers parasailing and there were jetskis at times, but didn't feel crowded or spoiled. Occasionally locals would also approach to offer snorkelling trips.

The food in the main restaurant (buffet) was fresh and local, and the sushi was a particular highlight.

Staff were generally helpful and efficient and guest relations were particularly good.

The hotel rooms are clean simple and functional without being luxurious. Some of them are set inland a bit and only have views of the car park and mountain, but personally I don’t go to the Seychelles to stay in my room.

This hotel won’t suit all but given the price of hotels generally in the Seychelles, I think this one offers good value.

I could not have summed it up any better. Thank you for your comments that cover everything the hotel stands for especially your opinion of our staff that we are very proud of. The hotel does have the best location, provides a very comfortable stay and offers a variety of cuisines unmatched for the value. Our activity and entertainment program we run is proving to be extremely popular.

Beautiful sandy beach with the most amazing sunsets I have ever seen. The stuff is really kind, they help every time. They changed our room to a better one, decorated the room with flowers in our anniversary, gave a delicious cake to my birthday. The restaurant is also good, lots of foods, fruits. We spent 2 weeks in the hotel and absolutely loved it. We visited every beaches on Mahe, and this beach is the best. I would like to go back to the Seychelles and I will choose this hotel again.
I don't understand the "terrible" and "not a smart choice" reviews. If you want to be in a luxury hotel than choose that. This is a really good small hotel with an amazing beach, kind stuff. Don't make rude comments just because you can't afford to stay in the Hilton :)
