La Digue Island Lodge
Ranked #4 of 7 Hotels in La Digue Island
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We stayed in the Yellow House, which we thought was good value. It costs €165 for two on half-board basis. Rooms in the yellow house are small but cute. The biggest downside is that there is no outdoor space but then again, you spend most of your day on the beach or exploring the island, so not a big concern, particularly considering the price difference for having outdoord space (€395).

The hotel organises excursions and we felt that the staff was extremely pushy about selling these extras. They were also very pushy with drinks at dinner, which are not included in the half-board fare. The food was very good however and the location right by the beach was lovely, with good sunsets.

The hotel is really big. Many rooms along a rather large pece of land. Clearly, structures are noit very new but rather well kept. Do not expect design and luxus however. Furniture is a bit old fashioned and not that elegant. The beach is, however, pretty nice and the villas and rooms which are in front of the beach have great views. Food is not that good. Lunch (à la carte) can be very good (ex. grilled fish). However, the evening buffet is pretty average. Breakfast is also average. Staff is generally kind and tries to be helpful. Rates too high for what you get. My real vote would be 3,5 (btwn average and very good)

Seychelles: blue ocean, white beaches, almost no traffic, friendly people, good food and an amazing rock formation of Hollywood Proportions.
Hawaii Island are rocking but Seychelles is more rough and pure though with all the infrastructure and luxury you need.

Don't expect the best of the best but the Lodge is part of the magnificent scenery.

One word: Unspoiled!

Staff would laugh as we walked by and talk in their language, not even noticing a 1.8 year old baby being cute and friendly. There is broken glass on the beach, make sure your room is fumigated and clean; if you leave it to them it won't
be. Oh yes, and their buffet restaurant is soiree for breakfast :) i was told that for that barefoot 10 dish buffet my singlet top was inappropriate.
10 to 12 euro per night for the chalet is realistic, instead of 460 euro.

Room Tip: Do not book it

We stayed in this hotel for 8 days. Room in Petit Village was comfortable. Don't expect fancy furniture, it is rather functional, but enough space and you will love the fresh flowers on your bed. Geckos run on the terrasse and may get into your room, don't be surprised. They are harmless and make a funny noise.
Kitchen is very good, breakfast is okay but the dinner is even better. Local dishes and fresh fish. Spicy but great. All this in a natural environment, you walk in sand when you are in the restaurant. (This means, you might find ants and birds can fly over your had, but I tell you, we are still alive.)
In the bar ask for the fresh fruit juices, they are the best.
Staff is very friendly, especially the men, no forced elegant manners but a nice word with everybody.
Pool is okay and garden is very nice. You have to know you cannot really swim on the beach in front of the hotel. You better rent a bike. A must is the boat tour around the island, search for Nevis he will show yo places you never dreamed of.
Do not expect busy nightlife, the island is very quiet, but it is very natural. Take a good camera, snorkeling equipment, beachwear, easy clothing and there you go. You will love it.

We actually didn't stay in the La Digue Island Lodge, but we stayed in the Union Estate Chalets, which is part of La Digue Island Lodge.

We were in half board basis, so we could taste the food in the La Digue Island Lodge. Food was very tasty and a lot of variation. The staff was also very helpful and polite.

On the last day of our stay, they offered us to have a shower in one of their A-frame chalets (checkout at the Union Estate Chalets was at 10.30). The A-frame chalets are very small. I felt claustrophobic in it. So we were glad we stayed in the Union Estate chalets instead of the A-frame chalets.

Nevertheless, I do not understand the very negative reviews on tripadvisor on the La Digue Island Lodge. I thought it was a nice property, nice gardens, good food, dining under the palmtrees and a million of stars with your feet in the sand, nice staff, only the A-frame chalets were not the type of accomodation we would chose. Rather stay in the Union Estate Chalets.

Last april, me and my wife stayed in La Digue Island Lodge chalet for 4 nights and I can say it was an awful experience!
Rooms was very big but rough and dirty. Two times we found insects as roaches on the floor of the bedroom. For two days, water came out from shower and sink of a brown color (like photo). It was very hard to sleep cause of mosquitos which bites last for days. The beach in front of chalet is minuscule. During all our staying no one changed the beach towels.
On the whole we found the Island Lodge chalet completely uncomfortable, especially considering the cost (300euro per night without breakfast) and compared to the care and beauty found in other resort in Mahe and Pralin at the same price.

How it all was, when we complained about, the receptionists didn't apologize and refused to make us speak with the responsible (that was hidden in the rear office) replying us that he was absent and that his mobile was off. Disgraceful!
