Show reviews that mention
I read a few negative reviews about Coral Strand but we really enjoyed our stay. The room was spotlessly clean with a nice balcony and you can have beach/sea views. Breakfast was huge and varied, staff lovely and the location on Beau Vallon beach is perfect. The restaurants/bar is not cheap but there are plenty of alternatives nearby. We would definitely return.
Excellent location with great view of the ocean”
The hotel is a bit aged however it has an amazing location right on the beach, much better than neighbouring Savoy which has better rooms and facilities but not directly on the beach. The breakfast was very good value, not huge variety but good food, the view from the breakfast restaurant is great as it's right on the beach. The hotel is cozy, we had a room with ocean view and small balcony and it looks very quaint at night. We arrived at least 4 hrs before check in time however the lady at the reception allowed us to have the breakfast and check in early at no extra cost as we had to leave early on the last night and wouldn't have had the breakfast anyway. The only unpleasant event was during the last day of our stay when 2 staff members called our room insisting we pay our bar bills as there was 'no credit'. Apparently you need to give your credit card details while checking so that any consumption is charged to the room however we were not asked about this when we checked in.
Coral Strand Stay”
It was a lovely stay at the Coral Strand. It is located at the beach and it has a pool next to it. We had a nice view from the room and the balcony overlooking the pool area and the beach. We liked the greenery that surrounded the pool area. Near the hotel you can go for a walk, there is a local market with crafts and delicious local street food. The food at the main hotel restaurant is really nice. The variety, the taste, the quantity, their food is really good. We especially liked the Creole food. We had breakfast and dinner included in our package and we recommend it for sure. The facilities and the furniture do need a bit of an upgrade and update. But the staff will make you forget about any objections you have. They are very professional, approachable, helpful and warm. They care about your experience and will try their best to improve it. Just a little tip. If you book some arrangements (any special dinner or something) with the hotel be sure to double, triple check if they are preparing it. We would like to thank Deidre, Irina and Cindy for helping us with everything and taking care of us.
The best 5 days!”
Ocean deck was my home away from home for the past 5 days! The manager Paresh was super hospitable and always made me feel welcome! Awesome location if you like beach and a pool all within steps of each other.
Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback.I am pleased to know that you had a good stay with us and Parash especially made it special.We hope you will return soon for another stay. Kind regards, Aleksandr Postevoi General Manager
We were upgraded to the hotel next door! Very very happy with the new hotel. I believe the upgrade happened because the US Navy booked many of the rooms in the hotel. Unfortunately I feel all the Navy persons drinking by the pool bar, was a bit of a disruption and could have ruined the stay for some people, as they paid a lot of money to stay there.
Thank you Mikhael and Aisha in the Hotel Management for their great efforts! Staff were very helpfull. I want to thank also Udara for great service. I totally recommend this hotel. Beach is just one step away. Right selection for Seychelles vacation.
A true delight”
The location of the hotel is what truly steals the show. Seated on the beach of Beau Vallon, this hotel has its own private beach access and the staff is exceedingly friendly and helpful. Apart from that, the hotel also organizes many activities and keeps its occupants engaged and makes every minute of their visit to this wonderful island nation worthwhile. I would definitely say that this hotel is the best amongst the lot in the Beau Vallon area.
The best thing about this hotel is the location, its the only hotel right on the sandy beach. Yes the hotel is old but staff are friendly and you can use the facilities of the savoy next door: i wouls stay here again
Me and my wife stayed for 2 nights at this hotel. The location of this hotel is perfect, with 4 different beach side restaurants. Also they provide relaxing chairs with towels for beach-side sitting. Staff is also very helpful and always a minute away from your call from the room.
Overall very good”
Overall very good but theres always room for improvement. They have management that want to improve as they ask. Location is amazing. The have free kayak use. No mosquitos only got bit the last day when we went to the bontanical gardens in Victoria. Food expensive but can get cheaper from local vendors. The TV computer for the channel kept needing reseting 6 times during one movie, its run by a really old Linux operating sustem. Trips expensive but just get a car there is everything thing you want on Mahe. Hotel charge €50 for airport taxi I booked online with another firm fo €30 But the local victoria cab firm would do it for €15 smaller car though
Perfect choice on the best beach”
Very nice hotel, very good location right at the best beach! Friendly, helpful staff, always smiling! We had onky breakfast but we ate several times at the beach bar and the food was good so as the view! We had a wonderful stay, I would recommend this hotel!
Went out of their way to assist us”
I highly recommend the Coral Strand. Great location on lovely beach, good food, nice pool and beach with loungers. AND EXCELLENT GUEST RELATIONS TEAM!!! Cant say enough about the support we received when my husband got a bad infection and was ill with fever. Our 3 night stay turned into 6, with several visits to the 'emergency room' at the Victoria hospital. Aisha and Stella assisted us in dozens of ways, all with care and concern. Definitely recommend this choice! Choose an ocean view room-worth the extra $.
Hotel needs some renovation to be able to actually be called a 4star hotel. We found a great deal and only paid about 100€ per night, if i would have paid more i would have been disappointed. Friendly staff., Great location on the beach, breakfadt was good with an omelette bar. The doors are poorly sound proof so you will hear the waves crashing the entire night, depending on which room you have i suppose. the hotelbar charge 12€ for 500ml heineiken, that is very expensive
Close to beach, Lovely Staff”
the best part of our stay at this hotel was the staff. Our housekeeper, the breakfast staff and the front desk were all friendly and helpful people. The hotel is spotlessly clean, but it is older. This means smaller rooms and finishes that are comfortable but not always luxurious. The rooms are small, but comfortable. The hotel is directly on the beach; relaxing, reading and swimming are super convenient. We had room with a connecting door to the next room. We could hear EVERYTHING that happened in the next room; this led to some awkward moments. If you are offered this room, even if it is offered as a n upgrade, as it was for us, consider asking for another.
Very good location and helpful staff, breakfast is one of the best of all.”
Good value for money for such good location where just few step to Beau Vallon beach plus breakfast. However the rooms are very small but cleanliness is fine. Staffs are all very helpful and speak good English. It was a good experience to stay in the hotel. Would like recommend it.
Too good and worth every penny”
We stayed for two nights. The beach was so close by with amazing view. The staff was helpful. The room and the hotel was clean and well maintained. The hotel has the famous seychelles turtles. There was amazing Indian restaurant mahek. The food was too good. All my questions and queries were well answered by the receptionist and the other staff. Well organized and helpful staff. They deserve a pat on their back. Will definitely come back to coral strand. Thank you coral strand team
Everything is overpriced. Food and drinks. The rooms are so so. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is perfect. The beach is amazing! I would recomend to my friends but wouldn't recomend to use the restaurants and the bar. The hotel Savoy is located 50 meters away and the restaurant is very good with reasonable prices. Also they give 10% discount for Coral Strand guests. In the same street there are lots of options. There's a small shop behind the hotel where you can buy bevereges for 1/5 of the hotel prices. There's an empty mini bar in the room where you can store the bevereges. Don't waste your money. You can take your own beverages to the beach bar and enjoy...
Couldn't be better”
The staff were really friendly and helpful throughout the stay. Rooms were spotless with good facilities. The hotel itself has a nice pool and a paddling pool for kids and it is right on the beach, which is a lovely stretch of sand.
Good location and friendly staff”
Coral Strand is very well located, it has own access to the beach, which is cleaned daily, which is important in this area. The only downside is that there are constantly high waves. On the other hand, there is a children's slide on the territory of the hotel, which is convenient if you're traveling with kids. There is also a nice sushi place on the premises where you can grab some fresh tuna sashimi or rolls. Our accommodation included breakfast, which, IMHO was a bit poor.. Nonetheless, don't get me wrong, the hotel itself is nice and cozy, though a bit old and needs some renovation. Oh, almost forgot, you can feed and pat the three aldabra turtles that live in the hotel's garden.
Amazing Sea facing view and good location”
The hotel is located right on the beach and the sea facing rooms are amazing. The hotel staff is very helpful and cordial. The hotel has couple of good restaurants and there are couple of eateries located just at a walking distance. Overall a great hotel to stay at the Beau Vallon beach.
