The staff are super friendly and always smiling & helpful, the location is great for a romantic & quiet honeymoon. I tried over 10different meals have never tried before while i was here. But the Internet is only availble at the pool area and the time given is unflexible, once u logoff the internet and leave to your room you cant use it again. I suggest the hotel should provide more router to extend the WIFI to every part of the hotel. I would love to thank the management of Archipel, the made me and my girlfriend grow closer than before we came for vacation. L'Archipel gets a 4star from me.

Loved everything: staff, food, room and mostly its location. A haven on earth. Going back on 2014. We stayed on june, 2012. The hotel beach is amazing - we were even lucky to see a small ray swimming beside us. We feel very calm there and its an ideal place to hide from the rest of the world. I trully recommend this place if you like sun and sea.

We had a very nice stay at this hotel, but my only complaint was that it was too far from everything else, because there was at least a half mile trail that one had to travel to get to the complex. The only options are to rent a car or a bike from them. Since driving is left sided, we ended up not taking our chances on the tiny roads in the car. The taxi would have been an option, but it wasn't really that cheap. This was also a problem for dinner, because non of their street are lit, it looked pretty dangerous to wonder out. So we ended up having dinner every night at the hotel, which was great food, but would have been nice to try another place.

Very very peaceful hotel with friendly local staff, lovely quiet beach, nice rooms with paradise views and good location. We ate at hotel twice, the honeymoon candlelit dinner was yummy and 5 courses. Other nights we ate at Pirogue who give free transfers and very good value. Whilst on Praslin we did the Curieue and St Pierre trip, and visited Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. Both really worth doing. Some hotels in Seychelles you could be anywhere in the world but L'Archipel hotel has the Seychelles touch! I must also say prior to the trip i was facebooking the hotel all my questions and they were always happy to help with their advice to ensure I planned the perfect honeymoon!

It's a small and peace full hotel, I really enjoyed the breakfast on the beach. I get married there on the 20th of May Ian did a very good job the decoration was perfected and the cake was lovely. On the night of our wedding they did a beautiful table for us and our family downstairs in plus they let us put some music on.It was a perfect day I couldn't be happier.
However the service wasn't perfect they brought us the wrong bill at the end of the meal few times so make sure you are checking your bill before you sign.
The bedroom was perfect with a very nice view on the beach however they are doing some new bungalow and it was noisy from 8AM but we didn't care as we were leaving our room around this time. I will advice you to bring your shampoo and soap with you as the one provide by the hotel are made in china with lot of product forbidden in Europe.

This was our fourth visit to the Seychelles and we have settled on Praslin as our favourite island and L' Archipel as our favourite hotel. This time we had a bungalow (Mamalles - 14) close to the sea with magnificent views. The setting is magnificent with a beach as private as any on the island and a vista across the bay you cannot tear your eyes away from. We had seen all the sights on earlier visits so this time we just flopped on our loungers and read while taking a dip now and then to snorkel in the bay. One day we hired bikes to look at the new Raffles hotel, were we glad we had chosen L'Archipel, you bet! L'Archipel is the right size for us and although it may not be as smart as the Raffles it has character and a great vibe.

We booked our wedding at this beautiful hotel,via an english travel company so obviously before arrival we were unsure what to expect. We were upgraded on arrival to the gorgeous honeymoon bungalow,which was a lovely surprise. On the 2nd day we met with the hotel wedding planner to finalise arrangements,she couldnt have been more lovely or helpful. Every member of staff from cleaners to gardeners and waiting staff seemed to know about and be excited re our impending nuptials and on the morning of the big day there was a buzz of excitement and a hive of activity! They decorated the pontoon,our choosen venue for the service beautifully and our room with filled with gorgeous flowers. The service was lovely and intimate,all our requests met,we even had 2members of staff as witnesses as we had travelled alone. After the ceremony and beach photos,staff had arranged a boat to whisk to 2 of us to a local private island for a few hours and packed us a lovely champagne picnic!! In the evening we were served the most fantastic 10 course seafood banquet on our stiil decorated pontoon! The whole experience and our week long stay was absoulutely magical and our dream wedding,our only grumble was that i stupidly booked to move to another island and hotel for our 2nd week!! The staff were fantastic at all times so friendly and nothing was too much trouble! I cannot praise this hotel and staff enough and dream of returning on day for an anniversary! Thankyou all so much.

Room Tip: Am sure they are allequally gorgeous!
