I'd give this a very good were it not for the noise from the road and the mattress!
We stayed in the studio called 'Hugo' for 6 nights over Christmas. The studio (bedroom) is very spacious and well appointed. For the price we paid it is good value for money.
The balcony with a table faces the road so it is very noisy all the time. Cars speed by even late in the night.
However,that said it is in a good location, close to Anse royale- best snorkelling location and also you can connect to to other inner roads on the island easily from here
The kitchenette is basic and has everything you would need to cook simple basic meals. It has a kettle, toaster, and 2 plate electric stove, fridge and basic utensils. There is no oven.
The bathroom has a corner bath tub fitted with a shower which we found quite odd- considering in the space available there could have been a nice sower cubicle.
The villas are cleaned everyday except on Sundays and public holidays. They don't come equipped with a mop and broom in case you spill anything...
What kind of disappointed me was the bed. There were 2 single mattresses joined together to make a double bed. But it was very uncomfortable so essentially my husband and I had separate beds as such- what a way to damped a romantic holiday.... So if you happen to get Hugo studio make sure they do something about the mattress.
It is true the villa is 50 m from the beach but the beach across the villa is not very wide or swimmable. it has lots of rocks...The nearest good beach is Anse royale. There is a good supermarket nearby called Kumar and Kumar (apparently one of the best in Mahe). There are fewrestaurants around this area- Kaz Kreol and les dauphins hereux are the more popular ones.
The owner Henri has a pool for his personal use. It was very tempting to use it especially because of the rains... Perhaps he should consider having a small pool in the garden for guests...
