“Small family hotel for good rest”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

It was our wedding trip. The hotel and all the staff/management did the best for our honeymoon. Apart of the wedding we enjoyed calm Grand Anse absolutely alone on the whole beach and just with a few more guests in the hotel. Our room on the first floor with ocean view was a piece of paradise. Restaurant, service, housekeeping, generally everyhing was perfect! I would like to say many thanks to hotel owners who made this stay unforgettable!

I & my wife had stayed in The Palm Beach hotel during our honeymoon trip. We stayed in the hotel for a couple of nights only, since most of our stay was in Mahe Island. Coming to our stay @ The Palm Beach hotel, I would rate is a bit less than good. The hotel had limited staff, and they are not too willingly helpful. The breakfast was decently good. The hotel has a swimming pool, which is not worth the time. The beach facing the resort is not good to enter into. You can spend time watching the sea & sun though - if that's what you want in your Seychelles trip :) The hotel is located in a peaceful surrounding, with some small restaurants nearby. The rooms are not that good for a honeymoon trip. However, the balcony with sea view is good for the morning. If you want to save some bucks in your stay, and are planning to spend most of the time outside (which was the case in our trip), then you can choose this one - a modest place in the beautiful Praslin island.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room with balcony on a higher floor. Don't choose a room on the lower floor...

The Palm Beach Hotel in Praslin was a great experience for us. We were a family of 4, 2 adults and two teenagers. The staff was helpful and knowledgable, able to answer all of our questions.
The rooms were spacious, clean, and my idea of perfect. Big beds, beach views, big balconies, etc.. The food at this hotel was excellent. I think I will dream of the fish dishes that I had for a long time. The manager, Audrey, was so pleasant and efficient. To be honest, we were sad to leave this hotel and would definitely recommend it if visiting Praslin. Highly recommended!

The hotel is directly on the beach where you can enjoy sunsets. There is a nice breeze from the ocean and a nice pool to cool off in. The air conditioner constantly leaked and the lovely wood furniture is drenched. But that is the problem of the hotel. I gave up in the end. The food is great and the there is a breakfast buffet. Make sure you come on time, since what is gone is gone and will not be replaced.
The beach is not for swimming since it is very shallow, only ankle deep, seriously. It is full of sea cucumbers. But if you take a car or a bus you can reach all the nice beaches. I personally found that Praslin had the nicest beaches.
The hotel rents cars (50 Euros a day). Which is nice to get around but there is basically one road and the public transportation is sooo cheap! I'll save my money next time for something else.

Room Tip: Take a room on top to see the ocean. Otherwise just sit on the beach and watch which is ok too.

My GF and I went to this hotel at the end of 2012. Despite the beautiful pictures they posted on Tripadvisor, the overall quality of facilities was a little disappointing. Here are some of my thoughts on this hotel;

- bed : 3 star quality with a couple of ants moving
- hot water : because of hot weather in Seychelles, they seemed to provide only medium-hot water
- beach : you can't imagine to swim on the hotel beach. Rent a car, and discover other beaches.
- wifi-internet : really fast, however, remember to pay additional $20 for your stay
- food : never tried
- service : friendly (they changed our room after our claim)
- price : in Seychelles, everything is pricy, even in this quality of hotel.

The good: clean, spacious room, comfortable bed and pillows, warm shower, cold AC, beautiful view of the ocean/sunset from the 2nd floor, close to the airport, rental cars on-site for 35 euros a day, decently priced comparatively.

The not-so-good: poor customer service, sullen faced staff (from reception to servers to even the owners), leaking roof in room, phone didn't work, food is expensive and average on a good day, beach is covered with sea grass, location is on the other side of the island from all activities, most restaurants and beaches thus car rental is necessary.

Room Tip: 2nd floor is great- avoid room 20 which is a converted attic space

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel

Service: Good. Every staffs were kind. We had some problems and they were really helpful to get over it. Especially this hotel provides fast wifi. It was really amazing to enjoy this fast internet in Seychelles. However, you should double check whether your package includes free wifi or not. If not, they will charge 20 Euro for internet. This hotel has a rent car service. It seems really convenient.

Location: Average. This hotel is located in south west, and all the good beaches are in north. You must have a rent car to reach famous beach such as Anse Lazio. It took 30 min to get to Anse Lazio. However, it's really close to the airport just 10 min drive. So there is bad side and good side at the same time.

Facility: Average. Room is clean but the bed was problem. This hotel gave to me kind size bed but it turns out the bed were made by 2 twin beds combined. My boyfriend and I had to sleep separately.

Food: I'm really sorry to say this, but breakfast was very disappointed. I paid around 200 Euros per night but, there were just bread, omelet with only onion&cheese, 3 different fruits, cereal with hot milk and coffee. That was all!! This hotel has to improve your food quality.

Room Tip: You better make sure your bed is real queen sized, or king sized bed. You may get a combined twin si...
