The setting and surroundings of L'Archipel is as close to perfect as you can get. The hotel has it's own private beach. It was truly beautiful - pristine white sands, crystal clear waters, lined with palm trees offering pleasant shade. It was so beautiful, I felt guilty reading my book! It was never crowded - I think we took one...

Dinner at L'archipel is one very gratifying experience. Whether you go for an ala carte dinner or prefer the buffet, the gastronomic preferences are endless. The buffet is distinctively creole while the ala carte caters to all sorts of palates. This would definitely be one of the finer dining experiences in the island of Praslin, so savor the experience.

The rooms are spacious and spotless clean. Room service is available twice a day. Garden and pool area are well kept. The private beach is good for swimming. Kajak, mask, snorkel and fins are available free of charge. Though the snorkelling is really nothing to write home about, but that applies to the whole of Seychelles. Breakfast is buffet style...

The setting and location of L'Archipel is truly idyllic. The views are spectacular, the beach white and pristine, the grounds immaculate. Couple this with peace and quiet, excellent, attentive staff , a wonderful colonial feel, an infinity pool, exotic flora and fauna and you have as perfect a hotel as you could imagine. However, competition on Praslin is hotting up...

A beautiful location. The resort offered quiet, peaceful, and gorgeous views. We had a room (Alphonse) that required quite a walk but offered great views to enjoy our morning tea and coffee. Jean (beach activity coordinator) and Pierre (hotel staff) were pleasant and most helpful. The balance of the staff (reception and wait staff) could learn how to smile and...

Thank you for the honest review of our hotel. I have taken note of all your points and each will be addressed with the team. I apologise equally for the fact that your husband was sent back to the room as we do and have adopted a more lenient policy re dress code in the evening

We were on honeymoon on the seychelles in august 2016, and the first stay was at the l'Archipel on Praslin. Well, what can we say to this place - we can't imagine one single thing which could be better! We felt very welcome upon arrival, the whole staff is very helpful and friendly. We were given the "Cousin" appartment, which...

Archipel has an infrastructure that brings you closer to Seychelles history in great comfort through its little villas style accommodation. The room (at least ours, Desroches) was very comfortable and spacious. Though missing a few amenities. The staff are absolutely lovely from the receptionist to your room attendant, your F&B staff and leisure staff. Everybody takes their role to offer...

This hotel looks OK, room is OK, has nice private beach. Apart from these positive things, it was the worst place we stayed in Seychelles. The reception staff is extremely bad. They hardly greeted us or gave us any advice. The lady called Christy who was a receptionist on July 11 when we were checking out made extremely rude comment...
