“"Fantastic Location" average 4* Island resort”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2011

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. Johan & Anthea

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 service of this resort is simply excellent, all the personnel from the director to the waiter are very friendly. The position and beach of the resort are beautifull, all creates a cosy place where to pass the right holiday. Absolutly recommended

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.

We are not easily pleased but for what we paid this resort offers excellent value.

The rooms are perfect, service by Seychelles standards excellent, the location fantastic, the facilities spot on. The food was fresh and plentiful, breakfast was the best meal, dinner was just a bit limited if you stay more than a week. The bands in the resturant were varied and fun, the entertainment guy Rocky, a real character. The ubiqutous pizza at lunch freshly made and good value. (and brought to your sun bed!)

Negatives, bar closes at 10 pm and exspensive, (probably why it closes at 10 pm !) pool was a bit small but hey just look at the beach and the sea !

White Tip Divers run a very professional operation and make diving easy. The diving in Praslin was much better on average than Mahe and Arnaud really knows the sites.

The Location of this hotel set in a quiet back turning with local shops and bars just down the beach as well as real local resturants was a real suprise and just added to the whole experience.

This is not cheap BUT it is not exspensive by Seychelle standards either. What it offers is excellent value, a fantastic location and a good "real Seychelles" experience.
