Paradise Sun
Ranked #2 of 11 Hotels in Anse Volbert
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 April 2011

We have recently returned from an amazing holiday to Paradise Sun, where we also got married on the beach during out stay.
Because of some of the comments on Trip Advisor we spent time trying to find something to pick fault with, but there really was nothing. The staff were friendly, the rooms were cleaned to a high standard every day, and the food was excellent.
Philippe and Joyce were a joy to know, and helped make our stay an all round wonderful experience. Philippe, if you read this we can't seem to respond to your email of photo's for some reason! Charlotte from Masons Travel was also exceptionally helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her either.
We took some day trips, one snorkelling to Coco, and a boat trip to see the Giant tortoise, all amazing.
So, no complaints at all, if you want to treat yourself to a fantastic holiday (or even a wedding :-)) Paradise Sun is the place to go.

the manager was very nice, he welcomed us personally. the hotel and rooms were very cute, though the bathroom door lock was broken. they have a nice porch to lounge on outside the room, and very helpful, a rack to dry your clothes on. there was a lot of food at the buffet for dinner. they even let us keep our luggage in the hotel for 2 days after we checked out and went to la digue. overall a pleasant stay.

My wife & I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary on valentines @ "Paradise" sun. After careful consideration & with all the negative/positive reviews, we given the resort the benefit of the doubt. Unfortunately all is not "PARADISE" @ the resort, in general the staff at the restaurant/bar were unfriendly robots,food presentation not to standard, the cocktails was "NO WOW" very poor "PARADISE" effort. Accommodation layout was comfortable,poor housekeeping service,our cleaner apologises due to other baby service,at 16h00 you do expect the room to be tidy & clean,especially when we have been out for the whole day. The reception staff did not even bother to make eye contact when we settled our bill the afternoon before our departure the next day, just a courtesy enquiry as to your stay @ the resort, or our holiday eperience on PRASLIN, you get what you see, just our personal experience & certainly not a memorable one @ "PARADISE SUN". Creole Island services has aggravated our planned adventures around Seychelles,when we pitch up @ the desk for a trip, the ever so defensive lady, havent you been informed that the trip was cancelled for another time, well unfortunately we just simply had four of those dont care attitude of "MISHAPS", quick to collect the bucks for what its worth...We will visit Praslin again,,, as we have experienced the other side of this magnificent JEWEL of this Island.

My partner & I stayed at The Paradise Sun Resort exclusively located right next to the Cote d'Or which is generally regarded as one of the most romantic places in the world. Check-in was express and we were taken to our beautiful room. In no time we were indulging in our first dive in the warm crystalline water as the resort is right in front of an endless stretch of white sandy beach. At this point we had already accustomed to the slow, flowing nature of time, everything in its uttermost serenity. The water was always warm and the weather was magical throughout our stay though it rained quite alot which served well for us, to cool down the temperatures. Dinners were always buffets & a range of diverse tastes were served for every palate. I particularly was smitten with the Creole Cuisine, as a Seafood lover, I had the tantalizing Red Snapper almost every evening prepared in varied ways by their marvelous chefs. The services was outstanding, our room was neat. Both staff and managment were extremely friendly and helpful at all times. On our second night we were invited to a "Meet the GM" cocktail party. We had some stretch - yoga like session every morning for free with an instructor. They also have alot of equipment that you could hire for a day at no extra charge for some water sports. It's child friendly as there's alot of acivities for children on a daily basis too. I would strongly recommend this Resort to couples but more especially families, it's so ideal. Overall the hotel was perfect.

Not the most exclusive hotel on the island but certainly one of the nicest, lovely beachside restaurant, friendly helpful staff, buffet style food fairly average and very expensive but then where is not in the Seychelles. Good mixture of nationalities. The sunset cruise was lovely. A lovely place to relax. Praslin is very small with basically one road. The people are friendly and the pace is slow. The beaches are simply out of this world.

The management under Phillipe was well organised and hepfull in every respect.They were always aware of our needs and went out of their way to make everybodies stay as pleasant as possible.The location is one of the best on Praslin.The excursions were well organised and reasonably priced.
Breakfast and evening meals were served in the restaurant on the waters edge and made the food even more palatable.
