Good morning Villa Dorado!
I would like to thank you for the beautiful stay at you beautiful place, thank you Zack and Yulia, you are doing great job by managing such a nice place.
Breakfast are fresh and full with fruits and eggs.
Room with ocean view is so spacious and comfy, bed is just fine not too soft nor too hard.
Villa is surrounded by green garden with palms and other species.
View on the garden and Indian ocean from veranda is amazing, large beach is just few steps away on which you feel free. For swimming you might watch for high tide or order a car and explore other parts of the island. For us the best beach was Anse Intendanse with nice waves and views.
Thank you guys for guiding us to different places with nice views for sunsets, restaurants, nice sports for taking photos and beaches and directions to the waterfall.
Thank you very much for our unforgettable holidays.
Definitely to recommend.
Regards.
Maria and Artem

This is a long overdue review of Dorado. We has stayed for 2 nights on our way out from Seychelles. The villa has a lovely view and is ideally located if you want a quiet space to yourself. However, it will restricting if you don't have your own hired vehicle.
Particularly disappointing for us was the room we had which was rather Spartan and shabby. Compared to our other stay locations Dorado was the most expensive and the least equipped with amenities and facilities. The host onsite was a nice and affable chap which made our stay manageable.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

Hello there chaps:)
Thank you for your stay with us and for your words about us.
We are a bit disagree about limitations without car, as we have very nice connection by public transports to almost any point of the island but i always recommend to grab a car and explore island (we can organize it right from the Villa as long with the other excursions etc.). The only thing is to have good mood and will to explore island by any ways of transport etc:)
This is paradise, not civilization:)
As for the rooms, We have our antique - style that's matches with the interior and exterior, also the pictures shows the real interior of our Villa. I definitely wouldn't it call spartan:)
All the rooms are similar to each other.
In rooms we have Large bed, chairs, table, tv, mini fridge, air-con.
We don't have kitchen or bath tubs in the rooms:) but you can use kitchen in the main area to prepare your self anything you wish. The kitchen is equipped with all necessary equipments, that can be used at any time.

Have nice day.
Enjoy life.
Kind regards.
Zack.

What a great place! Zach the manager drew me a map of all the amazing beaches to visit, gave me recommendations on the best place to see a sunset and eat, and arranged for a rental car. Breakfast was simple and served outside. The hammock was so comfortable that I fell asleep in it the first night while Blackie, the resident story mapped along with me. I highly recommend Villa Dorado and would stay here again. I am actually planning to stay here again within the next 6 months!

*I actually stayed here in Jan 2013 but Trip Advisor only goes so far back.

Stayed for two nights before going on to other islands. This is convenient to the airport - about a 10 minute drive along the main road south. A bit hard to find as the sign is overgrown with leaves. Lovely position on the beach but a little noisy from the road. Nice breakfast included and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. This is above average for the Seychelles and I would like to give it 3 and a half rating.

Villa Dorado is beautiful villa, As and when you enter it you will amazed of its green garden and the local flowers so beautifully maintained and creates a fresh atmosphere around you, A well protected villa with a car park and closed gates. The villa is so beautifully situated right on the beach, The villa's interiors are incredibly well done properly decorated, The bedrooms are well sophisticated and very very tidy which makes you feel so relaxed, villa dorado has the most friendliest Host as well as the manager of the place so down to earth and will do almost anything in his capabilities to make your stay Just as wonderful as desired.

I would Recommend the place to anybody looking to have a great holiday and a wonderful time on Paradise - Seychelles.

Spend our holidays with friends in villa for few days.
Great location: 10 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from Victoria, supermarket within walking distance, good transportation for almost whole of the island Mahe.
The view from our room was wonderful, we enjoyed the breeze and birdsong. Swam in the ocean every morning, sometimes the sea level fell and we went to the nearest beach of Anse Royale 5 minutes from the villa. Zack and his team made our stay unforgettable! The breakfasts were excellent and consisted of fresh local fruit, eggs, bacon and local tea and coffee. Our room cleaned every day. Worker Martha is very friendly and smiling person with good sense of humor. The guys helped us to rent a car and told where to go, what to visit, where to eat and where to go for a nice swim. Zack provided us with beach towels and snorkeling mask at no extra charge. My girlfriend had a birthday and at our request, Zack organized a small surprise for her and some flowers. It was great!
After getting know each other we had enjoyed cooking dinner together with Zack and Yulia, we also enjoyed nice talk and a card game with them.
Not too far away from the villa there are a couple of good restaurants with sea food!

This is the best place in Seychelles if you are looking for a friendly environment, beautifully decorated house with large rooms and smiling team.

As for the other Islands:
On Praslin the people are more money oriented
On La Digue very quite and sloooow.

We hope to return to this lovely villa with cool team!
