My Wife & I stayed half board for 1 week in Petit Amour Villa in November 2013, our second time in the Seychelles. The first time we stayed in Le Meridien, Fishermans Cove which was just about OK. This time we wanted somewhere special and not in a large multi-national chain hotel. What we found in Petit Amour was absolutely wonderful. The villa is owned/operated by Jon and Michel and you could not find two nicer or more helpful hosts. They were there to greet us on arrival with moist refreshing towels and Michel was up at 05.00 on our last morning to say goodbye as we had an early flight. We were given a local mobile on arrival with all the numbers we might need in an emergency!
We had breakfast and dinner each day and the food was excellent. The dinner menu was never repeated, the food was varied, perfectly cooked and presented with style.
The villa is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and our room was nicely furnished with high quality bathroom fittings.
The view from the hotel is magnificent and the terrace and pool area gets sun all day and you can watch amazing sunsets while sipping your gin & tonic!
The staff were all so nice and gave the impression they wanted to be helpful and make our holiday enjoyable, rather than pretending to be helpful as part of their duties.
There are beautiful beaches located within a couple of km of the hotel, in fact there are beautiful beaches all round Mahe.
Any negatives? No, but be aware as the hotel is located quite high up on a hillside (hence the fabulous views), if you do not have a car it would be a challenging walk back unless you get a taxi.
Keep up the good work Jon & Michel, Petit Amour is an absolutely wonderful place to stay, the best we have ever been in.
