We spent a week at the Paradise Sun mid November. This was the perfect, perfect honeymoon spot! The sundowners and supper served at the beach restaurant, is literally on the beach - the view is spectacular, the ambience super-romantic - the beach we thought was one of the best of the many we saw on a number of the islands. You fall asleep with the sound of the sea in your ears and in the morning we took long walks on the beach, meters away from our room. The location was great and exactly what we were looking for: private, beatiful beach, excellent food, friendly and good service, lovely spacious room and bathroom. There is enough to do either at the hotel or via excursions - and an AMAZING spa with the best traditional Bali Massages!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor would be preferable. We stayed in room 62.

We recently spent 2 weeks here to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and it did not disappoint. The beaches are fantastic and the resort was everything that we expected. We stayed in room 79 which had a fantastic sea view. The room was spotless as was the rest of the hotel. The staff were terrific throughout the fortnight, special mentions go to JImmy & Chris who run the activity centre, nothing was too much trouble and we found both to be very informative as well as wonderfully entertaining. From hiring bikes to going on the nature walk everything was first class and nothing was too much trouble, jimmy truly knows his stuff and Chris is a more than capable apprentice, many thanks to all the staff who made this such a memorable experience.

Great location, very well appointed hotel, friendly and extremely helpful staff, excellent food both breakfast and dinners. Rooms are very spacious with its own dressing room.

There are sufficient activities available for both young and old. The beach is kept in pristine condition and the snorkelling around the rocky side of the beach did not disappoint. St Pierre is the best place to do this but I found the rocks close to the hotel quite charming. Saw plenty of species.

Had a really good relaxing holiday. Can honestly recommend the Paradise Sun. Will definitely return some day.

Spent a wonderful week here. Our room (no 5) had a view of the garden and partial view of the ocean, and close to all hotel facilities. Breakfast fare is “okay” with sufficient choices. Dinner is served in the “beach restaurant” with beach sand floors. Each evening is a different food theme buffet, and occasionally with live music. No pressure on guests to “dress up” …. Very casual. Most guests went to dinner early; and to bed early. We waited awhile having pre-dinner drinks around the bar area, and then always got a table on the edge of the restaurant with a sea view & sea breeze. Staff at the bar area were great, and especially Darryl who went out of his way to accommodate us and friends during our stay. Found all staff very friendly and accommodating.

Lovely sea view from hotel (St Pierre & other islands), excellent and very clean beach. Short walk along beach to a little village nearby where you could buy water for SCR 15 as opposed to paying SCR 50 at the hotel.

We had a 1 hour Paradise Sun massage at the Spa which was great. Advice would be to book Spa treatments on arrival in order to get bookings for treatments you want, and also 25% discount if booked during specific times during the day.

Travel desks located in the reception area to assist with excursions. Booked a wonderful full day cruise on a catamaran via Creole Travel services to visit St Pierre for snorkeling, Curieuse island to see the giant land tortoises and Anse Georgette for swimming; highly recommend doing this trip. They also arranged a day trip to La Digue for us, and adjusted the pick-up times to suit us.

Would return to Praslin and this hotel in a heartbeat.

We booked this hotel last minute for a week in the Seychelles and it turned out to be the most amazing and relaxing hotel we had been to for a long time.
The hotel is on the beach and is very small in size meaning that you can always find somewhere quiet to relax. Evening dining can be as formal or casual as you like and as the week went on we got more and more casual. If you are looking for one bar, one restaurant (with a different selection of good food every night), one quiet beach, a small pool then this the place to go.
You can get water taxis to all the surrounding islands for just a few pounds or you can find a sun lounger and do nothing except have an occasional dip in the Indian Ocean.
