    Good value for money”

    The rooms are simple but more than sufficient, there's even a small (and very useful!) fridge. The air condition is working perfectly. The breakfast is only very basic but sufficient for a short stay. The cleanliness is excellent, the room was always perfect when we returned back from the beach. People in the staff aren't smiling but that's normal everywhere in Seychelles :-) The area is quiet, the beach or bus stop are only 3 minutes away. My only complaint is about the WiFi - the signal is good in all rooms but this is the slowest internet connection I've EVER seen in my life, even the dial-up in mid 90's was faster. Buy a local 4G SIM card instead (we used Airtel and 3 GB of data were about enough for 10 days). Seychelles are very expensive and this accomodation isn't an exception. Don't expect miracles. But apart from the useless WiFi and the very simple breakfasts we were happy with our stay and we would recommend this accomodation to others.

    Thanks Madame Anna!”

    Villa bananier is a good solution that meets many needs. A two minute walk from Anse Volbert, close to the best restaurants on the island. Close to the main street where public bus have a stop. A fair value for money, comfortable beds and nice clean rooms, good breakfast and if you want you can have a great dinner at a fair price. Madame Anna, the owner, will help you better organize your stay by booking taxis and boat trips! It was a nice stay in Praslin thanks to Villa Bananier!

    We didn’t stay at the property as there was a problem with the booking confirmation in Agoda, but Anne just found a place near by for hs to stay, called everyday to ensure everything was good and drove us to the ferry on our last morning which was all very nice. I’m sure you will be fine staying at her guest house.

    Good value guesthouse in a great location!”

    Friendly/helpful owners, great location near the beach, nice breakfast

    We enjoyed our 5 night stay at Villa Bananier in March 2015. The owners were friendly and helpful - they came to pick us up from the ferry port on arrival and booked excursions/ferry tickets for us. The location was very good - just a couple of minutes' walk from the wonderful Anse Volbert/Cote d'Or beach and the handful of restaurants in Anse Volbert. The room was clean and comfortable and contained everything we needed for our stay. The much-needed aircon was very effective. There was no TV in the room (no problem for us) and the Wi-Fi was extremely slow (and expensive at 100 Rupees / £5 for a 1 hour card). No big deal for us. Breakfast was very nice - a platter of fresh fruit (papaya, passionfruit, pineapple, avocado, orange, bananas, watermelon), a basket of toast, jam and marmalade, cornflakes, vanilla tea, coffee and fruit juice. We found Villa Bananier to be very good value for money - we would happily recommend it to others and would stay there again if we ever returned to Praslin.

    Is ok”

    clean, fantastic beach

    It is very nice place, it looks even better in real, than on pictures. Location is ok, pretty close to the beach, and Cote d´Or is fantastic. Bus is also pretty close, so you can travel around the island. We were in 3 location on Seychelles, but this one was not the best. It is ok place, also the owners are very nice (they pick you up for free at the jetty). Why I say it is not the best? 1) Breakfast - it is just fruit and some bred with jam and butter. It was much more in other places. 2) Bed - It is a shame, that they don´t buy new beds. Room is very nice, also bathroom, but the bed is just too hard (and we are used to sleep on hard beds). After three days we were happy, that we left :) I would still recommend this place, because it is not too expensive, it is very clean, owners are very nice. I could live with the breakfast, but it is a real shame for the beds.

    Relaxed place with nice people”

    Staff and rooms were nice.

    The Seychelles are expensive. Period. It is the richest country in Africa and compared to countries in the southern pacific, these islands are priced like cosmopolitan areas. Still, if you want to go and see these islands and are prepared for the price-shock, Villa Bananier is worht your consideration. It is close to a beautiful beach, with nice rooms and nice people. And the price won't quite burst the bank account. We had three rooms (family and friends went) and all thought the rooms were nice. Breakfast is served free and it was pretty nice. They have a kitchen that visitors can use which is really helpful as you can then do some cooking to offset the cost of eating out. It is located on the second nicest beach on the island (according to Lonely Planet) and considering there is much less pressure on this beach, we considered it the nicest beach. From here you can walk to the beach and make arrangements for boat trips (tours or charters...your call). Boats to Curieuse and La Digue are easy to come by.
