“Super Overpriced, Too Far, Never Again”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

This is a Money Squeezer, a tourist trap, it is located very far, there are only 3 buses PER DAY, TAXI ANYWHERE COST 40-70$. The hotel has two restaurants, the pool one is very bad and IS CLOSED ON MOST EVENINGS, the other restaurant is the Bouffet, which costs 70$ entrance PER PERSON NOT INCLUDING ANY DRINKS (NOT EVEN WATER). This means every dinner for a couple is between 160$ to 220$ (taxi + restaurant).

The reception team is not that nice, giving all kinds of attitude faces.

The breakfast food is good, the rooms are beautiful and spacey, well designed, comfortable big bed.

The massage was too short (promised 45 min, post the talking game actually did 25 min of average quality)

SUPER OVER PRICED, NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE, JUST LIKE ALL OF SEYCHELLES. (Thailand or Zanzibar is a million times better)

Service: You need to reserve until 16:00 if you want to eat in the restaurant. The buffet restaurant will only allow you in with long pants. (The 5 star Kempinski in Mahé which is a proper hotel does not have this rule.) Overall the staff is trying to do a good job but they are not professionals. The food is not prepared by proper cooks. Worst thing to do is the romantic dinner. Prepare to pay 200 EUR for cold shrimps.

Value: Awfully expensive for this old hotel.

Cleanliness: Cigarette buds on the patio. The cockroach in the bathtub is ok, that can happen. The rat / very big mouse on the veranda is probably happy about the lack of cleanliness outside.

Location: The hotel is on the wrong side of the island. There is always wind and snorkelling or swimming in the sea is no fun. They offer a free 40 minutes drive to a proper beach, but not on the weekends. There are no other restaurants near.

Rooms: Old and not as in the official pictures.

Spa: Apparently nice, but booking is a mess. They let me wife come back to the reception five times until the confirmed the appointment 40 minutes before the begin. Oh, and they let her wait another 30 minutes because they were late...

Breakfast: All the cheap stuff from the supermarket put together as a buffet.

Room Tip: Avoid the whole hotel. Stay as far away from the lobby as they have sometimes very noisy cheap bands...

A small and nice hotel. We really liked it. The best thing we liked about this hotel was the fisherman's wharf where we spent a lot of time after dinner everyday. The hotel is maintained very well and the staff were very friendly. We look forward to visiting this place again.

Just came back recently from Praslin that was our second island in Seychelles after La Digue.

It is a nice and small hotel, our bedroom was facing the sea view and on the hill side. I think most of the bedroom are likely facing the sea view which we enjoyed it every afternoon,sat in the balcony with our tea. The bedroom windows need to be varnished.

Just outside the hotel, there is two bus stop and the fare is cheap only five rupees for a journey which we took to go to Cote D'or.
The coastline of Praslin is beautiful and the beaches too.

Friendly and polite staff. Enjoyed the creole's night with the sega dance and the musician were playing the creole music was really nice.

Thanks to everyone at CoCo de Mer.

In october 2012 I had the bad experience of staying in this resort for 1 week durin my honeymoon. The locatin is bad, the hotel has no beach and the sea in front of the hitel was full of seaweed.
The swimming pool is very small.
The room was quite clean but in the beach bar all the seats and towels had bird excrements on them. Also at the morning buffet the same story.
The hotel offers little activities and is situated far away from everything, during weekend no activities at all are offered.
I would not recommend this resort and certainly will not return there.

It`s a medium size resort in Seychelles , Praslin island , this time of the year the currents make for sea weed on it`s small beach which makes it less attractive . It`s tastefully arranged , relaxing place , the food is good and some kill the time by the pool others take a car and wonder around the small island - you can be at the famous - and rightfully so , Anse Lazio in 30 minutes or the UNESCO site , Valle de May in 15 , or take even a bicycle if you`re young enough . Price for a Margarita cocktail is about 7 Eu at the bar or in the evening at dinner red wine by the glass 4 Eu .

We had read very mixed reviews about this property. It is an amazing place. We left there only yesterday but felt we needed to say just how good this place is. It is expensive - but far more reasonable than other places in the Seychelles. We chose to go half board and were not disappointed. Although we do not usually like 'buffet'style evening meals the choice was exceptional and the chefs went out of their way to make sure you enjoyed their food. Each night had a different theme and we were not disappointed. This is the first place that we could look at the wine list, wine was more or less English prices.
We stayed in the lovely Black Parrot Suites. These are about 200 yards from the main resort. There are not many rooms and the area is adult only. The rooms are beautifully appointed and we sat on our balcony most nights to watch the sunset. They have their own pool and bar area and so benefit from being quiet.
All the staff are very friendly wherever you are. They go out of their way to ensure you have a superb time. We did the free nature walk and the guide was very knowledgeable. We hired bikes and toured the area.

Room Tip: Our room was 502 and was well appointed
