Me and my husband stayed at Villa Flamboyant for 5 nights during our honeymoon to the Seychelles in September 2011 (former management). We paid a relatively low price for this accommodation (just 55 Euro per room including B&B). We rented a car so we had no problem whatsoever traveling all over the island. It is much more economical to rent a car than use taxis.
Even though the former manager of the hotel was very criticized in some of the reviews, we found her very helpful. She explained and discussed with us the history of Seychelles. During our stay, we booked an excursion but the company misplaced our forms and did not pick us up in the morning. The former manager did not hesitate to call the company herself and solved our problem.
We found Villa Flamboyant had an amazing location. It is situated right next to a beach. It was so relaxing staying on a hammock while looking at the ocean. Even though the workers have been criticized by other reviewers, we found them quite helpful. They opened our coconuts and took us to the fruit bat's cage.
The room was very simple but clean. On the downside, there were ants in the sugar so we did not eat much breakfast. Please keep in mind that we only paid 55 Euro for our room. We found this to be good value for money.
Wish a good luck to the new management. They are really lucky to own such a wonderful place!!!!
