Reviewed 8 March 2014

We stayed in the hotel for one night. We had to catch flight early morning next day.
Two things that i liked about the place:
1) Accommodation: Over the period we stayed in three self catering hotels, this was the best in having all the amenities and accommodation. Utensils and the necessary items for cooking were available. Rooms were huge clean and quite high tech in terms of security! We had a big garden in front of the bedroom apartment. The bedroom and hall were both quite spacious
2) View: The rooms were having a sea front view (Anse Royale). This added the romantic angle to this place. Imaging yourself having tea with some snacks at about 5 PM sitting on a rest chair in the garden with an ocean view in front! That is what Au fond de mer view provides!
I stayed in Berjaya for most of the part at Mahe, however in hindsight i felt that I should have booked this property for the entire duration of my stay at Mahe!!! Thanks Solena for making this a wonderful experience
(Also if you dont want to cook food, there is a good restaurant besides the hotel!)

Dear Abhishek
Thank you for writing this review.

It is such a pleasure to read this positive comments regarding your stay at our establishment. It is such a pity however, that you stayed only one day. Now that you have actually seen the place and know exactly what it has to offer, we hope to see you again (for longer stay) the next time you visit Seychelles.
Best regards
Solana

I had a very warmly welcome at Au fond de Mer View. The stuff is very nice, friendly and helpfull. I just stayed for two nights. It´s about 20 minutes away from the airport.
The room was very clean and well equipped. I didn´t use the kitchen, but I`ve seen that you got really everything you need for cooking. The bed was very comfortably and cozy.
The beach is just a 3 minutes walk away and just about a 10 minutes walk to find some restaurants, ATM and a supermarket.

I can really recommend this place and I would definitely stay there again!

Au fond de mer view could definitely be recognized as the best guesthouse that we have lived in Seychelles. We are updated to the second floor room and it is a big surprise to open the door to the balcony. There is a breathtaking sea view just at the front of you. We had our breakfast and dinner there and it is a very unforgettable experience. Near the Anse royale beach there is a samll island. There are some rocks between the island and the beach, which is a best place for snorkelling and we saw a lot of fish only aound those rocks. The sea is not deep around those rocks before the noon and it is very safe. Of cousre, compared with Anse lazio in Praslin and Coco island in La digue, the amount of fish in Anse Royale is smaller but it is still a surprise for us. Near the hosue there are many stores where you can buy all kinds of drinks, foods and sauces. The host Solana is very nice and helpful. We rent a very cheap car from her and I think a car is very necessary in Mahe. We easily visited the Beau Vallon, Victoria, Mission lodge and Trois Freres hill by the car. In all, Seychelles is fantastic and Au Fond de Mer view guesthouse was a happy ending of my Seychells honeymoon.

Au Fond de Mer View is situated not far from the airport, near the Anse Royal beach that is perfect place for swimming and snorkeling (few tourusts, good sand and no waves). Anse Royale is a very convenient place with supermarkets, pharmacy, money changing point, fish market etc. The hotel itself is very cozy. Perfect ocean view, good design, friendly staff. We hope to come back again.

the apartment is located in Anse Royale, 20 minutes drive from the airport. Really a nice place to stay. The kitchen is very spacious, very clean, I can find almost everything I need. the north_facing apartment is also a perfect location for enjoying the sunrise. by the way, Anse Royale is the best snokelling site on Mahe island.
Solana, your hospitality is so impressive. you played a very important role in my perfect holiday. Thanks again for all your help.
I will definitely choose this self-catering apartment when I come to Seychelle the next time.

This hotel is located in the heart of Anse Royale in the main Mahe Island of Seychelles. It is on the mountain with a great view for the the beach, just in front. You just have to cross the street and you will find in a paradise beach. Just close of the hotel you have the bus stop and around you will find lots of shops, supermarket and restaurants. The best restaurant around is Kaz Kreole you should go there. The room we stay it was small but clean with everything we need including a small kitchen, a fridge, a TV and AC.
