We stayed here for Christmas and New Year 2015/2016 for a 10 days holiday. The hotel is situated in a bay which was considered to be a pirate's cove in the former times. What you should know about the place - as per its description - it is an Eco Resort nestled in the nature and "cooperating" with the nature....

Our bungalow was fine with a balcony overlooking the bay. Lots of birds and wildlife and very restful. It was self-catering but the nearest shops are over a mile away so you need a car or can take a bus. They do not have bike hire which was a pity as you can ride to the nearest town about 4km...

Thank you for the review. Iles Des Palmes is an Eco resort. It is an establishment intended for guests who want a nature experience. If a guest is looking for proximity to the Indian shops and traffic there are numerous guest houses that offer this inconvenience. Bike rental and car rental is recommended. A car rental will cost €40.00 -...

We did a 4 day stop over on Praslin in April which coincided with Easter holidays and you can imagine most hotels were full and rather busy especially Mahe.

nice place because of the amazing view and pool. And staff's friendly. Restaurant pretty expensive and quiet compared to others we've seen somewhere else on the island.

Thank you for taking time to place a comment for Iles Des Palmes Eco Resort. The family beach bungalows are set along Anse Takamaka.

Madam perhaps you did not know you were booking at an Eco resort. Here your carbon foot print is deliberately kept to a minimal. We maximize other aspects of your trip. The fan has four speeds, not one. The cottage is 66 square meters on the beach. The price you paid was not for the Tajmahal. It was quite frugal....
