Advantages: friendly hosts, helpful staff, fair food, clean and spacious rooms, calm ambience, cool design, private parking, great views, the nearest Carana beach is outstanding.
Weaknesses: pretty far from the beach, very steep slope, so it's better to use a car to go up and down; hotel's swimming pool looks unpleasant, so I didn't try to swim there; breakfasts are okay but not the best; there's no hot water in the morning in room's shower at all;
I recommend to book this hotel only if you are going to rent a car during your stay there. Because all restaurants, shops and the most memorable places of Mahe are easily reachable by car. Not by bus or on foot, This hotel is quite secluded. Even the nearest beach is quite far. But still it's a great and calm place to stay. For couples, families and honeymooners as well.
