We stayed here after a week on Praslin and a week on Bird Island. This was the best hotel by a country mile (although Bird Island is a unique experience).
We had a hilltop room No 210 with spectacular view of the ocean. I could not fault it other than we would have preferred the room to be made up in the morning rather than the afternoon. The room was large, well equipped and I could have happily stayed for weeks. I always try to stay in west facing hotels to enjoy the sunsets and this room and hotel generally were perfect for sunset drinks.
The staff were, without exception, really good, attentive, welcoming and very helpful. The gateman even gave me a plate of mangos each day which were superb. Breakfast was outstanding in terms of ambience, choice and ocean view. I don't like buffets very much (and was bored with them after 2 weeks at other Seychelles hotels) so we ate in the Les Cocotiers restaurant 2 evenings and very good it was too, once indoors and once on the terrace overlooking the beach. The other evening we headed down to La Plage at Beau Vallon which was just as expensive and not as good.
We had one pleasant session at the spa each but the whole place is so relaxing this seemed unnecessary to me.
The beach is small but the snorkelling is good - watch out for the baby reef sharks! Each day we took a kayak out and went along the coast to deserted beaches for sunbathing and snorkelling. We even saw turtles while kayaking.
The pleasure of the Seychelles is the smaller islands but if you want to spend a few days on Mahe this is an excellent choice.
