We stayed at the Wharf Hotel & Marina for 2 nights, once before and once after our 2 days on Praslin. This hotel is wonderful.
The first thing we found is that the staff is incredible! We checked in with Selwyn, who was our go to guy and very friendly and helpful. It was only about 11am, but our room was ready, and very, very nice.
The beds at the Wharf are amazing, even more comfortable than my mattress at home! The bed linens are all white, and sparkling clean. The bathroom is very modern, and there is more than ample room in the glass shower for 2!! The only thing we found is that the toilet was only separated by a bamboo roll-up blind. No problem, just a little different.
The entire hotel is sparkling clean, and the lady that appeared to be in charge of the housecleaning was so friendly, we thought she was like a friends' mom who hasn't seen you in a long time! Very cute!
The food at the restaurant was wonderful, mostly Creole, but a wide selection. Everything we had was great. One night we ordered dinner up to our room, sat on our balcony (get a poolview room) and enjoyed the live music from downstairs, some wine, and some good company! Breakfasts are great and cater to all types of breakfast eaters.
The pool is quite nice too, and always clean. They said it's open until 6:30pm, but they aren't at all strict about it. One night we were in it until about 7:30 or so, and looked out and saw people in it around 10.
It's too bad that people use this place as a stopover, rather than an actual hotel for the duration of their stay. True, there's no beach, but the island is so small that everything is closeby.
ALSO, when we were there, there were 5 Navy ships in port, and we didn't see a single sailor at the hotel, bar or restaurant! I've read a number of complaints about rowdy Marines.
When in town, pick something up from the Pirate Arms takeaway (behind the main restaurant). We got 2 meals for 46 rupees, and I think it was the best meal we had our entire stay!
