We will be staying on Praslin Island for 5 days September 2018. We plan to spend one day visiting La Digue and another day excursion to Curieuse Island. We also plan to spend one day exploring Praslin (Anse Lazio in particular). For this reason we are looking for reasonably priced accommodation as we will be away for 2.5 of the 5 days. We are considering L'Archipel or Paradise Sun Hotel. The half board option is not much more expensive at Paradise Sun whereas it is at L'Archipel. Is it worth the half board option? We are open to other suggestions as well.
Also, we would like to hire a car for one or two days - is the best place to pick up the car hire the airport or will the hotel arrange this for us on the days we would like the car?
