After reading many reviews on the Seychelles before our trip we were aware not to expect to much. Having visited at the end of March 2012 the hotel is still under renovations. We did get one of the best rooms with a beautiful view right onto the beach and pool area. Our balcony was spacious enough for 2 loungers. A few things on the interior - like the TV not having an aerial and the phone not working, no safe and no curtain or blind on the small window in the bedroom may inconvenience some people but because we were only there for 4 nights before moving onto Praslin, sleeping late and watching TV wasn't on our agenda at all, and it shouldn't be for anyone who visits the Seyschelles. One of the most beautiful places on this earth - one doesn't want to miss a minute of being outdoors and exploring the Island.
Accept the fact that you are on an island and this is island life! Nothing gets done in a hurry! I would highly recommend this hotel, its well postioned and walking distance from other restaurants, make sure to ask for a rennovated room.
