Amazing hotel with excellent customer care from all staff

Dartford, United Kingdom

We stayed at the resort for one week, the hotel was an older property but has been refurbished and is maintained to very high standard. It is independently owned so they are keen to ensure high standards and guest satisfaction. We were half board so breakfast and dinner was provided, it was always excellent standard with good mixed variety. Drinks are reasonably priced I would say on par with England, if you opt for local beer or cider it is little cheaper and very nice. All the staff at the hotel was absolutely fantastic, so cheerful and helpful and the management checked with the guests everyday to see if they could help with anything. There is beautiful wooden decking area which was great to watch the sunset. We nicknamed it love island as the younger guests tended to use this area during the day! The local tour around the adjacent jungle is worth the visit, but remember insect repellant. There was seaweed in the sea, so we hired a car and went to the other side of the island, or you can use courtesy bus to go to the other beach which is spectacular. Really wasn't an issue and depends on time of year if you are affected. The spa treatments were really good, one of the best I have visited, the ladies were again so lovely and attentive. Complementary afternoon tea was really nice gesture and saved us having lunch.

It's Great, but...

Washington, D.C.

We stayed at Coco de Mer as part of our honeymoon and were generally quite happy. But it could be better. The property is a bit on the older side, and although the rooms are quite modern inside, the exterior of the property is clearly dated and has a bit of a 1980s summer camp vibe.Though, the jetty with cabanas and infinity pool is stunning and provides an amazing experience at sunset. Despite reviews saying that it's located on the lesser side of the island, the location is still quite beautiful with a view across the water to Mahe. Just be aware that the hotel is quite isolated -- there is literally nothing else around. The nearest shop is in Baie Sainte Anne, which is a 15 minute drive away -- as someone who likes to walk everywhere, it was a bit disappointing to find that there is nothing else around within even a 45-minute walking radius. One of our favourite experiences during our stay was kayaking and SUP'ing, which was very easy to organize. The waters are quite nice (although there was a significant amount of seaweed around at the time). Insofar as other activities, the hotel was also able to (very easily) organize a rental car for us, which was very helpful. Although, fair warning, driving around Praslin is not for the faint hearted! We were impressed with the food. The breakfast buffet is good and the a la carte dinners were very tasty and, for Seychelles, rather inexpensive. The restaurant staff are also very friendly. The rooms are quite modern, although the layout is ... interesting. The bathroom is surprisingly open-plan, which is maybe not a characteristic that everyone wants in a bathroom. The quality of the internet also (maybe thankfully) promotes mentally switching off, since it is extremely poor and unreliable. The one drawback we experienced was the service. The Seychellois staff were quite aloof, bordering on rude. There was very much a "well, when are you leaving?" vibe from them. On the other hand, the restaurant staff, who tended to be Mauritian or Indian, are very nice and helpful. It is an interesting dichotomy. If the service was more consistent, our experience would have been better for sure. One oddity of the hotel is their check-in and check-out times. A (very strict) 10am check-out seems to be a rarity among hotels, and perhaps even odder for a hotel that wants to attract honeymooners for a relaxing getaway. That said, the hotel does provide a helpful alternative (the Vanilla Lounge) that, for a small fee, gives you access to a lounge, showers, and luggage storage while you continue to enjoy the amenities even after check-out. It's a nice touch, but would not really be necessary if the hotel had a bit more of a sane check-in/check-out schedule.
