Great views
If you want to be in the middle of all the action, this is the wrong hotel. However, if you want to get away from it all, and completely relax, Cerf island is a great place for that. It is also a great base from which to explore the marine park and the other islands in it. The hotel has free kayaks which are worth taking advantage of. They also offer free snorkel gear. The snorkeling isn't great in most places around the island, but there are a few gems that the hotel can point out which have an amazing quantity and variety of fish. The rooms are just ok and the bathrooms could really use an upgrade (or at least some maintenance and a lot more light), but you don't come to this hotel to sit in your room. The balconies and patios, with views of Mahe, are a great place to unwind. The food at the restaurant is just ok. Nothing special, but filling. There are no stores on the island and the hotel only provides bottled water on the first day, so be sure to stock up before coming to the island. The boat transfer from Eden Island was decently convenient, except that there is no late boats so you can't have dinner on Mahe.

Relaxing hotel - boat transfers not that convenien
excellent relaxation place. Beach is only there when tide is not high, sea in front of the hotel is not that nice for swimming. Sea conditions and colour is best on back side of the island, but the kayaks are free to rent and go there. Excellent walk up and over the island, but you can't walk around the island as not all sand. Pool is a little tired and not clear, but hotel rooms are good. Uses solar power which is great. Food is ok. Breakfast could do with more bread options, as only sliced bread available, but eggs cooked how you want was a nice inclusion . Evening meal is usually at the hotel, as boat transfers push you into it. Food at the restaurant was good, but we ordered the same dish on two separate occasions and they were completely different dishes! Worst is free boat transfers are only two in the morning off island and two in the afternoon back.....no option to pop to the main island for an hour or so for free. If you want that you pay extra!! Staff at the hotel are excellent and helped with taxi and car rental bookings....also facilitated late checkout well. Excellent foliage at and around the hotel. Some snorkeling on the side of the island, but a little walk from the hotel. Would recommend people stay here as long as they are not expecting a great beach all the time or wonderful sea colours. Staff really make the place. Very relaxed feel. Great place to watch the rain on the main island whilst sitting in the sun on Cerf island.

great semi-private island near enough activities
well received. staff extremely friendly & helpful.we stayed 1/2 board which was very good and worth it as not much is nearby and you need to ferry to mainland.rooms very neat and comfy. get upstairs if you can. we had noisy couple above us plodding around all strange hours. lovely view over clean pool to mainland from room.good snorkeling nearby and we went with Max next door to do the Marine Park. he is a warden and gives you good local info.

posizione ottima sulla spiaggia, belle camere spaziose con balcone bello e vista stupenda, anche se struttura po' datata che avrebbe bisogno di rinnovo. il personale della reception ok, ma al ristorante qualcuno musone e poco simpatico e il cuoco non sa cucinare, andrebbe sostituito.

Joli hôtel. Le personnel est très sympa et très serviable. Jolie piscine donnant sur la plage. Possibilité d’emprunter des kayaks, de faire un snorkling trail gratuitement. Petit bémol sur le confort des chambres, clim et frigo très bruyants, salle de bain qui mériterait un coup de neuf.
