Cote d'Or Chalets
Ranked #13 of 16 Anse Volbert B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 August 2014

My wife and I got engaged on this trip to the Seychelles. The chalets are very personal and have their own kitchen which was good in case you would like to make something for your self in the evening instead of going out.
The service here is very personal and good. Location is not bad, you are very near a beautiful beach and short distance to other beaches nearby and the Octopus diving centre, which I would also recommend!

Be aware of the pirates on the beach trying to make a deal going on a boat-trip. Be polite and just say no thanks and they will be on their way again. (Only negative thing about this area)

Food at Cote d'Or Chalets is very very good and made by the manager when we were there in 2011.
Local shop has varied wares to buy, but if you have special needs you should bring some food with you. Almost everything is imported except local resources.

We stayed here for a week, and really enjoyed our stay. Would go back if we get the chance any day!

Just back from 12 days at staying at these chalets. We had a absolutely fantastic time and would recommend staying here without hesitation. I always thought the Seychelles was outside my budget but staying at a chalet/guest house means they were within budget. The Manager Mona was just brilliant and nothing was too much trouble for her. Her partner is a fantastic chef and the chalet offers meals if you require and we would recommend them to.

The beach is just a couple of minutes away and is lovely and shallow with no strong currents. Some beaches in the Seychelles have strong currents and have huge waves so are difficult to relax in but the beack here was just great.

Cote D'or is a small village and there are a number of resturants and shops near-by for provisions and gifts to take home.

We did a few trips with one of the boys (Sidney) on the beach and all trips were very good and we had no problems. We did speak to some other people who booked with a chap called Quintin who were ripped off big time.

We had an amazing time in the Seychelles thanks to great accommmodation, location and most of all the friendly people working there and hope to return soon.

One word of caution there are lots of sand flies which give a very nastly nip so take your insect repellant to the beach and make sure you spray.

Room Tip: Only 7 chalets and they are all lovely

Comfortable and clean with beautiful surroundings. Walking distance from Cote d'Or beach. The staff is very friendly and charming. They can hook you up with taxis, car hire etc. even on short notice. However, the reception closes at 4 and there is no one to assist you after that. The rooms are serviced daily and are decorated with flowers everyday.

The website says that the package includes starter pack on arrival, but we were not given any rather we were compensated with one breakfast. The breakfast includes fruits, toast, butter, jam and juice. Any addition like eggs will be entertained only on prior request. There are small supermarkets that surround the area where you can get almost everything. But try to carry as many food items as you can if you plan to cook as the stuff is quiet expensive. The kitchen is equipped with essential items.

The prices quoted on emails while making the booking for car hire, transfers etc. were different from the actual prices (although the difference was only 5-10 euros). If you are on your own i.e. without any agent, then this is a good place to stay.

We have been going to Praslin yearly for 15 years, and the last few times we have stayed at Cote d'Or Chalets. The Chalets are well equipped and conveniently located. The staff is very service oriented and pleasant. Miryam does everything to make your stay special - and she is a great cook! You can either rent the chalet as self-catering, with a breakfast or with half-board. Everyday the rooms were nicely done, with special flower arrangements. The only thing to mention negatively is that this year the internet had to be paid by hour, whereas before it was free.

Room Tip: If you are renting two rooms, make sure you mention that you want them together, as each chalet has...

Island standards are pretty relaxed, so it's going to be hard to find something perfect. So you'll understand if I start with a bit of constructive criticism: the layout of the chalets in kind of duplex style makes privacy on your patio a little difficult, especially with the lattice dividers. You'll get to know your neighbors very well after seeing them every morning at breakfast and every evening at dinner if you cook at home. There was a bit of confusion with our booking (check-out date got mixed up in a discrepancy between telephone and e-mail exchanges) so we suggest confirming. And then double confirming. And then confirming once more for good measure. We would have loved a big island smile from the staff (to match the extravagantly decked out flower arrangements on the bed), but we understand how dealing with tourists must get a little old. And last thing, if you're coming from the ferry dock in a rental car, make sure you have good directions before you set off. There are no signs from the road (the property is actually at the back of Berjaya, but you can't access via the beach road; you have to take one of the back streets). It's good to be aware that wifi is available only for purchase with the iSurf cards (there's a scratch-off username and password), which are not cheap. Kokonet is a better option (available for 24 hours, instead of 1 hour) but we only found that out after getting back to Mahe. All that said, it's a great little place, professionally run, comfortable, safe, and full of tropical flowers and birds.

The chalets are located right next to Cote d'Or beach and are very well maintained and comfortable. If you are on an average budget and can't afford the likes of LeMuria, this place offers you the best value for your money. Highly recommended.
