We stayed 6 nights in the Lys room and it was perfect! Room is spacious, clean and private. Breakfast is pretty basic (small plate of fruit, one egg, a couple of toast and coffe) but definitely saves time in the morning as it is brought up to your room and avoids going to the restaurant. Very convenient to have a kitchenette with fridge also for snacks and water. Could be better stocked with more dishes, coffee maker etc. but I assume you could ask if you need anything.
Location is amazing - right across the street from beach, restaurants and dive shop.
Brian and Simone are super friendly and helpful.
Highly recommend this place!!

Just across the street from a great local beach, we had a wonderful stay here. Our room was basically a one bedroom suite. Bes was comfortable (if a little hard) and everything was very clean. Loved having a kitchenette. Fresh breakfast was served each morning on our balcony and when we had an early morning departure they even stocked the fridge the night before with breakfast. Little things like that are greatly appreciated.

Shame there is no restaurant on premises and the front desk hours were quite short on weekends.

But this is undeniably great value in Seychelles.

Room Tip: The big family suite has an enormous terrace with a great sea view

For 90 Euros per night I stayed on the tope floor in a huge bungalow with a massive verandah and had breakfast included. The view from my immense balcony was of both the mountains and Beau Vallon beach. Absoultely beautiful! The staff were lovely, especially Simone, who I had most of my dealings with. She was very sweet and helpful, responded to my hundrend and one questions over email and even booked a taxi for me from the airport (500 rupees). The bunglaow didn't have aircon but did have a fan. Other rooms do have A/C and SImone kindly offered to move me if I found it too hot, but I actually thought the fan was enough and grew very attached to my villa. The property is clean, spacious, located right on the beach, accross the road from the dive shop and close to all the restaurants of Beau Vallon. Definitely a great little alternative if you're looking to avoid the typical resort style of accom or travelling on a budget.

A huge number of double decker in a tropical garden overlooking the garden and mountain views, private veranda, where breakfast is brought. There is a fully equipped kitchen. In the room can hear the surf and the birds. At the reception work nice and polite people.

For those wishing to visit the Seychelles on a budget you cant go far wrong choosing this friendly cosy hotel.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and for an etra 6Euros a night they will give you a breakfast served to you on the balcony of your apartment.
The location of Romance is suberb literally just a few metres away from the wonderful beach of Beau Vallon and within easy walking distance of local shops and restaurants. One tip though take a torch if you visit the shops after dark as the road out of the village isnt very well lit.
Simone and Beryl are both very friendly and will arrange a pick up from the airport for you when you arrive.They can also arrange car hire etc but shop around for better deals around the island.
Getting around the island is quite easy as buses run frequently and are very cheap. Simone and Beryl will give you help with timetables etc.
Would i stay again? Absolutely!!!
Romance is excellent value for money. Thanks to Beryl,Simone and Brian and the rest of the staff for a lovely stay.

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived and shown our room. The staff were superb and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Beau Vallon beach is literally 1min walk away as are restaurants and a decent spa. This is not 5 star but then nor is the price. we will certainly return and recommend this B&B.

Very good place to stay: beach and restaurants are near the guesthouse, comfortable and spacious rooms with small kitchen and terrace, friendly stuff, own cars for rental.
The only disadvantage is that breakfast is always the same - one egg, toasts, jam and some fruits.

Room Tip: Spacious rooms
