“Very pleasant location but....”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

The villas are nice, the beach very close and the view is beautiful. Anyhow the place was not up to our expectations for two reasons:
1. THE DESCRIPTION ON THE SEYVILLAS WEBSITE IS FALSE: there is no restaurant and no breakfast room in the hotel. The breakfast served in the villa is poor and expensive
2. THE beach and the garden are INFESTED BY SANDFLEAS and they did not tell us neither on booking nor on arrival

We stayed at les villas d'or in for 5 days april this year and had a perfect time! I really think this is the best place to stay on beautiful praslin: It is on the beautiful, quiet beach of cote d'or, the bungalows are very relaxed, clean and we slept very good in the comfortable bed. The showers are very good too!The place is not too big and feels personal and authentic. Pierre, the manager, is very friendly and helped us with a lot of things like car rental, reservations in restaurants and a very nice boat trip to curieuse.

There are a lot of nice things to do on praslin: relaxing on the beautiful empty beach in front of the bungalows, anse lazio, anse georgette (our favorite beach!), zimbabwe, vallee de mai, curieuse island, st pierre islet...we would love to stay again!

We stayed 6 nights at one of these cute Villas back in April. It was great, the villas were very comfortable, spacious and cosy. The manager Pierre was extremely helpful and professional - went out of his way to help us with every query or problem we had. Really appreciated. Even in rainy weather you have a pleasure sitting outside at the veranda- which happened with us as during our stay it was raining for 3 days straight! Great location just on the beach with very few people wandering around as there are just few resorts in that area. Beautiful surrounding with a great garden and tortoises. The only thing we did not like were a few defects such as malfunctioning of the air con (which was taken care of immediately after we reported the problem) and noisy flushing in the toilet. Also breakfast could have been more varied as we got the same thing every day. Too bad they do not serve fresh fruit for breakfast too. Overall a satisfying and relaxing accommodation and we would definitely recommend it despite a few minor faults.

First of all I would like to explain why we booked Les Villas d'Or - of course becouse TripAdvisor reviews and recommendations . But I hope taht utill today there was no full review describing that place and showing it's main pros and coins .

Localization:
The hotel is situated near the main road, but not strictly by it. Villas are about 150 m from the road so you don't fell it`s presence. You have got about 600 - 800 m to the nearest shop and to the main center of village - Cote d`Or so it's really a short walk .
3/5

Villas :
They are old fashioned and splited, the surface is about 70 m with an antresole. You have got a small bedroom with air-condition which was the cause throat sore after first day ...and our neighbour from Germany was so sick that I had to help him with my antibiotics . Kitchen is connected with the main room, furniture are really very very old, only the oven and worktop in kitchen looks like new. Also the bathroom is cool an it's look like ii was renovated. The Garden surrounding our Villa was also very beautiful .
The main disadvantage in my opinion were the doors which connects bedrooms of the neighbours with ours. You can hear almost everything what is happening there. Thats why for the honeymoon it wouldnt be the best choice to go to....
Overral :
3/5

Service :
Service is on a very good level owe to menager Pierre. He was very kind and helpfull person and mainly because of him the rate is ,,very good " not only average .
The villas are being clean every day, you get fresh beach towels, and they change water basin which is needed to wash your feets out of sand. They also provide bikes if you want to go shopping for example. I must say i really like the bikes - they are like california style. They can help you arrange everything you want - excursions, car rental etc. The only minus of the service is a lack of complimentary WI-FI.They should think about it .
5/5

Beach :
Here is the most important part of our review. Taking into considerance the entrance to the beach Villa's d Or are beating every other Hotel on Praslin and also on La Digue. There was no other hotel whith such beautiful view to the beach on whole Praslin (we visited all of them ). And the beach was just about 30m from our villa, so if you want to feel like in paradis you just need to take just a few steps from your villa. i became an addict from this terrific view and i needed to go there every morning and evening

5/5

Overral : Im sure that if they woud renowate the Villas and make a wall between the bedrooms this Hotel may pretend to be the Best on the Island Praslin.

Room Tip: Take the rooms just by the beach, which back is facing the garden not the footpatch...becouse there...

Reviewed 22 April 2013

We were very amazed of this place once we entered the resort - beautiful garden and creol style challetes. A few steps to the nice beach, where you are alone. I think one of the nicest resort on Cote d'Or. Staff was very friendly and helpful to answer any of our question or they had very positive approach when we asked for late check-out.
But - this resort is about 13 years old and there are the interior and furniture reflects the age - despite it is cleaned every day, kitchen cabinets (specially the bottom one) stink after mildew. As well lot of very little insects was on the kitchen desk or bathroom. Fortunatelly we didn't have to cook ourselves... As well after 2 days climate controll stoped working. Staff was very helpful to sort this out (we received additional electric fan) but our last 2 nights we suffered from the heat. However we went over these minor issues and enjoyed our stay very much.
Price for this accommodation is just on the edge - resort is really beautiful, but challets needs renovation. If renovated, price would be OK, I would recommend it to anybody without any question and resort would receive from me 5 stars... but the above mentioned negatives degrade the rating to 4 stars only... what a shame !

This is a slightly different review as we never actually made it to the Les Villas d'Or! After much research we were booked there for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in June 2013. With only two months to go until our special trip they've decided to close for 'refurbishment' during June (not that anybody in any review has ever mentioned the need for refurbishment!).

So that's it - our special holiday is cancelled with no prior notice and barely any time to arrange a suitable replacement. Thanks Les Villas d'Or - you certainly know how to treat your clients! One to avoid in future unless you want to risk your special trip.........

Pierre, the manager, is a delicious person, he knows everything on the island and can suggest good place for sea and eating.
The villa is extremely confortable, the porch is fantastic!
Even our friend dog that eats our shark take-away food :D
