Paradise Sun
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Anse Volbert
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2012

I am currently at the Paradise Sun and what a splendid holiday it has been. The weather is beautiful although hot and humid but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The hotel is fairly full but service is always up to standard. Staff from check in to the waiters, housekeeping etc are all efficient and friendly but not overbearing.

The food selection on half board has been good and evening meals are a treat. Drinks however are a bit on the expensive side but this seems to be the norm in the hotel industry.

Paradise Sun is a good base for exploring the most stunning beaches and island hopping, diving and snorkeling excursions.

I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel for a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life....

We stayed here for one week during july 2011.
The whole area of the hotel is very pretty with alot of plants and so on.
Food is great, alot of choice and alot of choice, everyone should find something.
most of the guets are italians for those who are interested in it.
The service needs some improvement, eg the guy responsible for snorkling equipment could not speak english.. The rooms are cleaned sometimes in the morning, sometimes in the evening, and we had to ask for new towels 2 times.
i would recommend to book the tours independantly since they are far roo expensive organised from the hotel, and the snorkling trip was very unpleasant. A lot of waves, some beginners, and the guide just left pretty everyone on its own. in other hotels instayed tehy cancelled the trip, for good, in those conditions.
The location is pretty good, within a 10min ride you reach the port, valle du mai and the citycenter.
All in all we were comfortable at the hotel and would recommend it to other guests, since price value is absolutely top!

if u r going to seychelles then stay at the pardadise sun hotel
the beach in front is the best ever,- clear warm waters ,white sandy beach
the accomodation is excellent and comfy
the service is very good
the ambiance is exceptional
the breakfast buffet is very good
the themed dinner was excellent
the meals r at their restaurant which is at the waters'edge- very casual nd no need to dress up- sandy floor
afternoon tea with cake is complimentary but basic which is ok
dont really need lunch
prices are reasonable
can go on island visits from there- which r close
we went to La dique and Cocoa island for snorelling
enjoyed the creale nite with dances in the garden over a bonfire

not much to see in Mahe island, rather spend the day at th hotel
Time flies coz before u know it the weeks up
only need your costume, shorts nd pajamas!!!!
very realxing nd stressfree holiday
staf very accomodating
take a short plane ride from Mahe to Praslin airports as it sanes time instead of taking the ferry
loved it

I spend more than 5 months on the road and I have visited quite a few hotels.

This is definitely among the top 3 hotels that I have stayed.

Nothing to complain except that food could be better but they go out of their way to meet your dietary requirements.

Go ahead and book your stay at this amazing Paradise.

Situated on one of the largest and longest beaches on the Praslin Island with crystal clear warm water, the setting is truly beautiful and relaxing. Swimming distance to an underwater marine park is an added bonus. You could walk up to 100m into the ocean. Hotel staffs are attentive and friendly. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with sea views and lush gardens.
All meals are served from one restaurant located on the beach. You could not ask for a better setting. The food is good but not great as they have to cater to a wide range of tastes, however, fresh fish is served daily which is excellent. Good location to other restaurants and hotels.
Seyschelle is truly PARADISE!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are sea facing double storey buildings. Ground floor rooms are easy to access. Roo...

What a fabulous hotel! We stayed there from the 12th to the 19th of February 2012, and were in absolute heaven! Everything was top notch - the warmth and efficiency of the receptionists, the beautiful room and amazing view, the softest, warmest beach, and the friendliness and will-to-please attitude of the staff! We loved every second of our time at Paradise Sun, and we hope to come back some day.

Room Tip: We had a Superior room, which was lovely! Ask for ground floor if you dont like stairs.

Where can one find the words for Paradise Sun! We stayed in the superior room from 23-30 Jan 2012. All the staff and management was perfect! Almost every night we had a special turndown, private dinners etc etc the list goes on. The Manager Mr. Ferrari was really helpfull and very professional. He came and introduced himself and was always in the background to make the little chats here and there. We are also from the tourism industry and one tends to look out for the small things even more- and they def passed with flying colours! All the activites was arranged with Josepha of Seychelles select the morning after our arrival and she made sure everything went perfect. We really tried and do as much as we can, and a week was not nearly long enough. Be sure to see us soon again SEYCHELLES!
Tips: We used World wide travel- they def have the best rates to get into the Seychelles

Room Tip: Ask for a room which is not duplex. Single storey rooms is the best!
