Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 March 2012

We stayed here with our young son. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Rooms are a good size and clean. Breakfast and dinner also good, they offered to cook an early dinner for our son.
The hotel grounds are lovely and well kept. The hotel has a good pool and is right on a lovely beach, you have the beach almost to yourself. Great for sunsets!
Very good value.

We spent 5 nights here and can thoroughly recommend it. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was large, comfortable, well air-conditioned and private. The hotel's location was truly excellent, only a 10 min walk along the beach to the shops and on one of the main bus routes around the island. The food was plentiful, varied and delicious. A lovely hotel in a great location!

The hotel is very quiet and has established gardens covered in local flowers and palm trees. A nicely sized pool with sun loungers and a good restaurant and bar, with direct beach access with more loungers on the beach.

We spent 10 days here with my 3 boys (ages 11,9 & 8 yrs) and my new wife (we got married in the hotel gardens at Acajou). The staff couldnt do enough for us for our entire stay and were very accommodating.

The wedding was handled superbly with 3 gardeners rallying around producing a stunning backdrop of flowers for the service, a top chef produced a great coco-de-mere wedding cake and a 5* evening meal for us all.

Room wise the standard is ok, double or twin beds, fridge, tv , safe, full bathroom suite with bath/shower, aircon and balcony. The superior has a bigger room, double baclony and extras like slippers, bathrobes, toiletries ice maker in freezer etc. For our boys an extra bed was availble in the standard. They have a couple of deluxe rooms right on the beach front but we didnt have a look so cant comment on the interior.

The restaurant food was a good quality although the evening menu didn’t change for our entire 10 day stay. I think they only expect people to stay 3-4 nights so I am glad that we only went B&B as 10 nights with the same menu would have driven us mad!. There were 2 buffet nights during this period though. Generally main meals would cost 200 - 300 SRP (£10-15) each. There is no kids menu, but we had an agreement with the management to do half portions at half price for our kids as they would never finish an adult meal.

All the staff were very happy and polite but special mentions must go to:
Jo (the manageress) was extremely friendly and would go out of her way to check that everything was just as we wanted, Richard the main receptionist was a helpful and funny chap always with a smile on his face, and Raymond a waiter was always on hand to help us with any special menu requests for the kids.

Bad points are hard to say but here goes:
They need to have more variation on the menu
Generally they need to let you know of activities going on in the local area (there was a Creole festival going on down the road that wasn't mentioned to us - we found out from a taxi driver).
We were ambushed by sand flies on the last couple of days, not really the hotels fault but kind of spoilt the wedding/honeymoon. They do spray the beach once a month for this but also do it when reported by the guests.

Not related to the hotel just in the Seychelles as a whole, we were advised to take dollars and euro's. We found that paying in Seychelles rupees (SRP) was the best value or £ sterling was better than Euro's. Always ask for a price in SRP as excursions/taxis seem to cost more in Euro's. US dollars weren’t even asked for.

The hotel is very well located on a beautiful stretch of beach.
I was very impressed with this little hotel, the rooms are a very comfortable size and have a good sized bed. Basic TV, AC and mini bar (empty) but plenty of space to both relax on the balcony or work on the desk.
A lot of effort has gone into the food, the best thing to order is anything seafood as it is all very fresh.
One of the downsides is that you can hear people walking around on the first floor if you have a ground floor room. Apart from that the service is very good and has all the services required, wi-fi, small gym and small massage room.

I would describe Acajou as a boutique hotel. Directly on the beach that we shared with shared with hardly anyone during our stay. It felt like we were on our own private beach. Rooms were spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. Food was tasty, dining room classy, and service incredible. From the front desk staff to the pool cleaner, we experienced gracious hosts who made us feel welcome and wanting to return.

I think we will.

My partner and I stayed here and at once I knew it was the right choice. Beautiful low rise rooms surrounded a lovely pool and a lush well maintained garden. Each room has a balcony/varanda and is perfect and peaceful for a getaway. Great service and a very warm welcome upon arrival and a great breakfast. It is only a short 10 minute walk to a few local restaurants/shops should you like to stretch your legs or stock up on some refreshments to store in the minibar of your room.
Only 1 minute away from a pristine beach its a great place to stay on Praslin.
Many many thanks!!
