If you are looking for a quiet , tranquil place to enjoy, this is it. Staff is excellent and friendly, going the extra mile for guests. The only thing that could improve is food a nd access to food off hours.

Tranquility with nature”
The only way top th is hotel is via boat, there is abundant wild life, both in the forest and in the water. The staff was genuine, & always helpful; there is a knowledgeable marine biologist on staff
We enjoyed the quiet atmosphere at the hotel, the snorkeling was great, watching the crabs at night on the beach do their tunnel building and little battles was entertaining. We did not want to leave.

awesome location, expensive food, 3 star rooms.”
Beach, snorkeling, staff performance.
The location is awesome and snorkeling right from the beach is absolutly spectacular. Staff working in the hotel were kind and hardworking. The were some negative things about the place like, Rooms(superior) are 3 star, and not worth 350€ a night, lunch and dinner for 2 with a coctail costs aprox 2200 SCR pr day which is too expensive. No internet in rooms(which agoda states), although this didnt matter for me. Lunch stops at 14:30 and dinner beginns at 20:00. Between this time the only food you can get is cookies at the complementary tea/coffee break between 17 and 18. All in all the resort is nice, but not worth the price. I wouldnt stay here more than 3 days if i were going back and if i came back it would only be for the amazing snorkeling.

Very pleasant stay”
Ease of transfer to the main island, beaches & activities on the island itself, rooms
Overall a very good stay at this hotel. Helpful and friendly staff (apart from 2 exceptions, which really didn't influence the trip but were more of a surprise, hence this comment) large rooms at a very good standard and a beautiful setting. The 4 giant turtles that roam the hotel grounds are a great plus, and we easily organized a diving & snorkeling trip from the hotel which was great. On an observational note there seems to be a lot of Italian guests staying at this hotel.

Location, Setting of the hotel bungalows , ocean (snorkeling)
Relaxing, beautiful underwater world JUST in front of the hotel, quit (private) beach in front of the hotel, spacious rooms with all comfort you need. Do not come here if you expect 5 star luxury, rather a very well price quality 4 star hotel with an amazing very private setting in the tropical nature of the Seychelles located at one of the best snorkeling spots of the island of Praslin

Free kayaks, great snorkelling and good food
The good things about this hotel are the free kayaks, great snorkelling and good food. The bad about this hotel are the number of birds in the restaurant with no apparent efforts to deter them. More ferries over to the main part of the Island would have been useful.

Great island getaway!”
Location. Giant Tortoise on hotel ground. Free boat shuttles.
We enjoyed our stay in the Superior Ocean View Room very much! The garden and beach rooms look nice too but I think the superior rooms may be twice the size. There were two extra beds in the room. So can accommodate a family of 4 nicely. But having the oceanview meant that we didn't have a porch like the others, which was not a problem for us. There were plenty of space around the lounge/dinning area, where there is wifi, to hang out. Free boat shuttles gave us the flexibility to go into town. One of the things we liked here were the full-day excursions! They were done well with friendly staff who know how to cook a great beach BBQ!

Clean, beautiful and best location
We experienced a great service when we arrived, from the italien women in the reception. Unfortunately we didn't experience same type of service form the employees in the bar/restaurant. They had a bad attitude an didn't express any signs on that they wanted to help you with ordering a water or some food. This was unfortunately a very bad exeperience from a hotel we loved to stay in on all other parameters. The young employees was the worst - and the older women especially was really great. The food from the menu card was also a big disapointment. Especially the pizzas was bad and the chicken-pasta with no chicken in it. The buffet in the evennings was good. Unfortunately no employees informed us that it was possible to order eggs in the morning as supplement to the breakfast buffet - the second last day (out of 8), one of the older women-waiters asked us if we wanted some eggs. We were pretty disapointed at taht point. Spending 6 mornings wondering where the eggs was at the buffet - no omelets, fried eggs etc. And then experience that we have the option to order these things. Bad service not teling us that. The room was great! The pool and the garden was also beautiful and we really enjouyed it. The employees at the reception was also realy great and offered great service.

Overall very good. Location and snorkling were beyond expectation. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Only one gripe - the food wasnt up to par. Breakfast got progessively lacklustre by the day. Buffet is average and overpriced. Were forced to get food elsewhere that was cheap and delicious.

Beautiful surroundings and snorkeling”
Great snorkeling right off the beach. Nice garden. Remote and quiet
The hotel and environment exceeded expectations. Large sea view rooms easy accommodated us and our two kids (1 double and two singles) plus walk in closet. Very nice gardens with giant tortoises. Pristine beaches, forest and ocean around the hotel. Snorkeling right off the beach in front of the hotel is fantastic. The waves break several hundred meters off shore and so you can explore coral over a large area even with small kids (ours are 3 and 7). Saw a giant Moray even. Took the hotel boat directly to La Digue. It left on time and costs about the same as the public ferry from Praslin. Food is average but priced very reasonably compared to the many independent places we ate on Praslin (although all food in the Seychelles seems way overpriced). Internet was on and off, but what do expect for a place that is only accessible by boat.

Nice hotel for honeymooners or families”
Nice location next to the beach, nice breakfast buffet, very good cocktails and friendly staff
We had a good time at New Emerald Cove Hotel. Our room was at the back of the resort literally on the beach. We really liked this intimacy. The buffet breakfast is good, cocktails are amazing but dinner buffet was a bit too heavy for us. I recommend this hotel for honeymooners like us or families. Nice beach hotel.

Nice Garden with lacking beach
Beach directly next to rooms has many shells. Hard to walk out to water. Beach is better for snokeling. Beach advertised on site is at least a 5 minute walk but has no chairs for laying out. Also, private property owner on the beach advertised is an arse. Breakfast buffet ends at 10am. You must go to breakfast early to get anything. We went to breakfast always at 9:30am and none of the missing items were replenished. Restaurant service was lacking. Internet did not work.
