8/10 Very good

The individual villas are fabulous, lovely views, fantastic plunge pool, beautiful inside, very private. The hotel is renovating gradually, which it does need to do, main restaurant & area outside it in particular need attention. Asian restaurant was excellent, main restaurant food was very average. Would return for those lovely private villas!

2/10 Poor

The resort is extremely hilly and requires a buggy service for which you must use the telephone in the rooms. However, the phone did not work and the management was aware of it without response when we checked in. Subsequently, we ended up walking. Also, the coffee pot in the room did not work so fresh brewed coffee in the morning no good.

Lovely views on Praslin
A lovely, spacious hilltop villa with amazing views across to Curieuse Island. We enjoyed the outdoor seating space and private plunge pool. Lovely Asprey toiletries. The property is large with a beautiful granite boulder-strewn beachfront. The daily included breakfast was always tasty and plentiful. Prices for other meals were high, and given the difficulty of getting off-property for other meals (unless you've rented a car), it makes sense to book half or full board. Service was often slow especially at lunch and dinner. Service at the pool and the beach was often nonexistant. We expected better at this price point.

10/10 Exceptional

We stayed in one of the beautiful panoramic villas which are well sized, have a nice pool and a spacious outdoor deck with beautiful sunset views. The beach is everything you would expect (soft sands, blue seas with fish) and are well maintained as are the over sized pool and sun deck. The staff are charming and helpful. There is a good choice of F&B options but they are good rather than exceptional. Would stay here again though.
