    Just ok”
    Nice quiet location up in the hills on the north side of the island but you definitely need a method of transportation. Great breakfast and friendly staff. The real negative side is the size of the standard room and the lack of WIFI reception in the room.

    Good but not great!”
    The property is quite far from everything. If it is your first and and unless you have a hire car, I would recommend paying a little more and staying on Beau Vallon, or Anse Royale.

    Awful customer Service”
    Pluses: Very Nice beach nearby however you will need to rent a car do get there and also to get the amnesties like food as there is nothing around. This is where pluses end. The customer service in this place is awful. We stayed there for 3 nights: 1. After coming back from beach in the evening and sorting everything we went downstairs to cook the dinner ... and found ourselves locked out! We could not go to the kitchen or to the main hotel area. There was no one around. this was around 20:00 local time!!! On the next day the explanation from the management was that everyone is sleeping by then! 2. The hotel is advertised as it has a kitchen available for cooking however that is not strictly true. On a different occasion we tried to use it but the kitchen was locked. so we asked a worker where could we cook, he showed us another kitchen which we did use. As I was washing up the dishes some old chap turned up(I did see him before in the hotel but still have no idea who he is as he never introduced himself) and started talking aggressively "What are you doing here?", " You are not supposed to use this kitchen!" the fact is kitchen was advertised as available and one of the staff advised us to use this one. I find it absolutely appalling to talk to customers like that. This is by far not the cheapest guesthouse in Mahe. Stay away!

    First timer traveling to Seychelles”
    I really enjoyed my short staying at Carana Hilltop Villa. Eilleen and Vincent were the perfect hosts. The staff was also helpful and ready to please. The view of my bedroom was gorgeous facing the sunset. Breakfast was flawless. I will recommend Carana Hilltop to anyone traveling to Mahe'. I can promise that you're not going to be disappointed.

    really a hilltop property”
    the seaview, serenity
    when we arrived, the power was off, so candles and flashlights. you have to drive somewhat a distance from the airport to be here. If you don't rent a car, taxi drivers may deem you a easy prey for the ride. Even if you rent a car, the car rental is still just a little bit better than the taxi fare.the rooms we stayed in were not well aired or ventilated in the daytime.better for solo travellers or young couples.

    A really nice place - recommended!”
    nice room, nice garden, in generally everything was nice
    The villa itself, its little shady backyard, the bedroom - everything was very nice and it was pleasant to stay there. We cooked every evening (you can get fresh fish for penny from the fishermen at the beach in Beau Vallon), the villa has a very large and comfortable kitchen, also outside BBQ facility and also an outdoor kitchen - so it was very comfortable and enjoyable to cook. The staff was very friendly. We definitely would like to come back and stay there again! Advice: the villa is located on top of a very steep hill, walking up and down the hill can be very exhausting (we walked every day), therefore renting a car is highly recommended. Looking forward to our next staying at Carana Hilltop Villa! :)

    We had a nice and very plesent stay at Carana Hilltop. Eileen and her husband made our stay something personal. We felt like we were in good hands all the time. Great pool, balkony and an amacing view. The staff is sweet, and you feel like you live with family. The beach is a 10 min walk from the Villa. We can strongly recommend this place:-)

Accueil étonnamment froid ; l'un des membres du couple gérant cet endroit étant malade une tierce personne avait été rappelée à la rescousse ... Pas très grave mais on venait juste de descendre de l'avion alors un peu déçu qd même. .. . Petit déjeuner à un prix excessif (15 €) ; au "Coral Strand" de Beauvallon pour ce prix face à la mer C un véritable feu d'artifice ... . Suite "honeymoon " plutôt sympa mais très basse de plafond car perchée tt en haut de l'endroit avec accès via un escalier en colimaçon très très étroit. ..

    Nous avons apprécié l'accueil, et la chambre très spacieuse digne d'un quatre étoiles. Par contre, il faut impérativement louer une voiture car c'est assez loin de tout à pied (avec un fort dénivelé) si on a un enfant en bas âge.

    Une belle villa ”
    Nos 2 premières nuits en arrivant aux seychelles. Très bon accueil et nous avons même eu le choix de la chambre. par contre une voiture est nécessaire pour se déplacer. Le carana sert un buffet tous les soirs à 25 euros mais sinon pas de takeway aux alentours. La seule solution si vous ne voulez pas du buffet c'est de vous ramener à manger et demander qu'on vous le réchauffe. Accès possible à la plage par le Carana beach. Pour cela il faut descendre jusqu'à la route principale mais le plus dur est de remonter. prenez des forces vous en aurez besoin. L'accès à Victoria est facile avec les bus. Le bus seychellois est une activité touristique à faire. la conduite des chauffeurs est assez sportive 😉
