My wife and I felt at home almost the minute we arrived. Our stay was for 3 weeks and we did wonder if we would get bored, but we did not. We went for lovely walks along the beach, trips in the kayak and did a few boat trips with the hotel boat. All the staff were very friendly, though like most of the locals, a bit too laid back, especially when it came to service in the restaurant! However, there was nothing to rush for. We did a 2 day trip to La Digue and Praslin, but felt it probably was not really worth it and we were glad to get back. By the way, the ferry trip back from Praslin was very rough and we were told that it gets a lot worse into the Summer.
The couple who manage the hotel, Pierregorgio and Sandrine are a lovely couple and very hands on and take a personal interest in your needs.
We found the food to be excellent and they were very willing to alter the menu to whatever you prefer.
All in all, I would recommend this resort and the location. We may go back in the future.
