A very nice and easy going hotel. The paths, no matter where you in the hotel and where you wanted, were always very short, which we appreciated a lot.

    Size and furnishing was okay. Cleanliness: oh well. In the almost two weeks was swept, never mopped. The lack of insect repellent bothered us a lot. Spiders, mosquitoes, small geckos have left. A shame.

    The entertainment is with two to three events per day. Jimmy makes every effort and fun. Shipping on wednesday (free registration required) is very nice. The pool is small, but we have the sea. There are plenty of loungers available. The cushions were also at night and were partly extremely dirty (the birds are everywhere)

    As described above: that was from our point of view not at all. The buffet breakfast was very sparse. Hardly meat, bit of cheese. Always the same. In the evening there was a different theme every day for the food. Prices are extremely high: two small beer (0.28 litre) for 10 Euro.

    As i said, very good location. We were with the public bus. Cheap and very adventurous. So can one everything on the island. With the motorboat you managed from the beach to la dique in 20 minutes. Costs 50 Euro including bicycle.

    The hotel's private beach is perfect for swimming-also without bath shoes have been possible without a problem. 10 minutes walk away is a small village with the possibility to shopping and money exchange. The public bus which the island drive along stops right in front of the hotel and is equipped with 5 Rupees extremely cheap per way. Is worth a trip with the bus to anse lazio to drive (last 1.5 kilometer walk!) The belem river ferry station about 15 minutes and to the airport praslin approximately 20 minutes.

    We didn't use the pool because the sea with the great white sandy beach as a large badeanne is ☺. Flat sloping and you can swim well. As always guests on excursions are traveling (excursions to the Seychelles generally very recommendable!) There were always plenty of chairs in the sun, as also in the shade along the beach.

    In september was only the restaurant directly on the beach with beautiful sand in operation (in the main house was being renovated). The food (dinner and breakfast) in form of a buffet were always very good. The selection was nothing special, but it is an average international 4 star hotel. From our side anything to complain about. In the evening was usually a live band as background music. Until 22 o'clock-afterwards is conclusion; bar until 23 hours open. Generally is in the right place who rather early rises. Life begins on the Seychelles in the morning and it is from 9-10 hours quiet (also in the nearby located village)

The hotel has for us as find turned out to be. We had just the right mix of comfort, service and nonchalance found, which we aspire. The rooms are good equipped and the service leaves nothing to be desired. The food in buffet form is rich and good. The staff is always cheerful and helpful.

Friendly from arrival onwards. The location on Praslin island is about 30 minutes from the airport. This seemingly comfortable laid back and easy going atmospheres was brought about by a well trained group of staff at every level. Efficiency was accompanied by a genuine friendliness. The food was full of variety, and entertainment was usually musical and very pleasant. There was lots to do in addition to what was laid on. Wonderful scuba and snorkelling and big game fishing. Food was super wherever you went. July is a nice time to go as it was about 27 degrees celsius every ... day. read hotel review

    It is rare to have such friendliness combined with quiet efficiency. This resort traditionally had many italian , French, German, South African and many other guests, and the staff were able to talk easily and comfortably with many.

The Hotel Paradise sun has an absolute dream-sand beach. Even after 200 metres towards the sea you will find no corals, sea urchins or seaweed. Simply a great baderlebnis. The hotel is beautiful set up with spacious villas with great decor. The staff was always cooperative and attentive. Only the party possibilities (for example disco, pubs) you can only find in further distance. A great hotel to relax in a wonderful location. read hotel review

All in all a nice hotel with very friendly staff. The location is very good. The rooms and facilities are a bit outdated, but still in good condition. On praslin is basically everything was a bit more expensive, but if you a few more meters the beach down, one can good offers for excursions wars. La dique is a must (for example) take enough euros with, because that you paid cheaper than in Dollar, or local wärung. Half board is from our point of view to recommend, because firstly, it is really very good and, secondly, the food outside really ... not cheap and rare much better read hotel review

A great beach hotel for the casual holiday with 80 rooms. While we were there in march it was well occupied. All in all the hotel a dedicated impression. Nothing seemed neglected, neglected or dingy. We had the half board, almost all the guests utilized. The guests came from South Africa, Angola, France, Italy. Germans were only few present. Everything very pleasant guests in all age situations. Children were only a few available. The communication was done in english or french. The officials and inhabitants, all these languages so good. With exclusive german you could get much further. Wireless internet ... was without limitation. Initially racked slow and with a mehrtätigen failure. Afterwards it went quite good. At the beach and in the room you could connect.

    Gourmets are in this hotel correct. We have rarely seen such a good fare served, and we are already very critical. Only the Baguette had weaknesses, which also bluntly admitted. It was on the oven. For breakfast you have amongst others a wide selection of exotic fruits and can get your eggs to your liking prepared. Every evening has the buffet under another motto. Fresh fish, pizza and chicken leg there was every evening. Everything makes a fresh and cleaner impression. The meals are all in the same 'area' restaurant. You sit quaint right at the waterfront and can the wonderful panorama enjoy. Is unfavorable in our opinion the sandmussboden. Some people may see it differently, but the chairs are regularly seated bagged. The heat in the dining room was due to the equipment and the herds quite high. The popular tables were therefore outside the dining room. For us there on the last evening a seat reserved, great! Pure romance! A dress code does not exist. Let the long pants and long-armed shirts at home. Pack only the lightest things a. Flip-flops rich, who likes can also barefoot come. Everything is very relaxed and relaxed. The prices are quite high. For a beer 0.289 liter is 75 scr requires. The house wine bottle of 390 and otherwise 590 for a Chianti. The tips is this price. We have nevertheless some tip given. Red wine in the supermarket costs 119 scr and the water is cheaper too. Great is the tea time at 16:00 o'clock. Water, juices, as well as coffee and tea with delicious cookies and blechkuchen free of charge available.

    The location is absolutely great. On the one hand the hotel lies directly at a very nice beach with beautiful bathing possibilities, on the other hand, you are on foot fast with the next shopping and atm. From the ferry only a couple of minutes to the hotel. The ferry 1 hour from mahe to praslin. Tip: when it rains on the upper deck do, they are wringing wet! Most popular is the lower deck. If you on the ferry something to drink would like, should at the airport money in local currency at the atm drag. The conversion of Euro on the ferry is extremely bad. Night life can one forget. Nothing is going on at night, also not in the area and not in the hotel bar. Evenings there was good the bands in the dining room play, but from 9:30 p. m. they played for itself alone, since all the guests again on the rooms were, actually a shame. The hotel is perfect for this perfect for a consistent relaxation, as well as for swimming and diving. Everything really loose and easy!

    The rooms are quite generous and the beds with thick mattresses. Our mattress was not the best impression and was in my opinion changed. The air conditioning worked with a remote control and the room a fan, the very quiet ran. The tv had only english, french or italian programs. A fridge which you could fill up. We have water and wine there chilled. A kettle with coffee and tea bags, and a free safe were available. A small dressing room had enough storage space. A candle and ashtray for the terrace are provided. There are also rooms, the an adapter for elektroanschlüsse need. This can from the reception received. A small working hair dryer is also made available. Because not perfect cleanliness of bath and the mattress deduction.

The the staff respected. No pandering or auftringlichkeiten. The communication is only in english or french. Only the diversity of creole, love Ute, was a german and has itself super cared for us. With the room cleaning we were not happy. The room can our view be cleaned thoroughly, other it might be enough. Unforgivable is however, that the bed linen first after a week been changed and the only after our complaint. It was offered, individually the linen to determine. Folded however also not.

    The hotel is for a quiet beach holiday-oriented. The beach is great and is cleaned every day. It is wonderfully quiet and you do not hear just the sound of the sea. Immediately left from the hotel at the beach is a diving station. From here drive every morning and at noon the divers in two boats to the diving areas. Otherwise the hotel offers free snorkeling trips to. But you could still with boats organise excursions. Ask Jimmy, the entertainer, he makes and organized everything-great guy! For children nothing was offered. For this is however the sea very suitable for kids, it is slow and with only small waves into the sea. No dangerous currents and also no bathing shoes necessary. Take but definitely with, excursions to other beaches for instance to La Digue to make want. They can but also even in the supermarket. Our recommendation: the shop behind the currency exchange 'Treasure Island'. The chairs at the beach were always enough, but very hard from wood and with editions. Badetüscher are provided and are permanently to the exchange is required. The loungers are generally for shade of palm trees. There are two showers were. The sea has about 30 degrees and you could spend hours fabulous, but be careful-the sun! Snorkel things and paddle boats can park for free at the hotel can be rented. For cycling ask Jimmy! Beware the sand flies! We each had about 65 bissstellen (the bite not, but bite and one notices it later). Take adequate protection! Household should coconut oil and immature oranges are, but we didn't try it. There are especially the feet and legs covered.

    Originally we had wanted to a week on praslin and a week on La Digue spend, finally we decided however, two weeks in a row at the paradise sun to spend, which also the best choice was. From the hotel we could all islands discover. Opposite the hotel is the small painted island St. Pierre, it has the best possibility to snorkel and a small trip something to do. On all the islands must be a tax payable (200 Rupees per person). The neighboring island curious (turtle island) is very worth seeing and you can get easy a day (on the other island is a really beautiful beach). On praslin there is the anse lazio, the dream beach bad. To the beach one arrives cheap by bus (from terminus about 25 minutes mountainous walk), or over the waterway. Directly next to the hotel is a small cottage, with the the excursions punctual and vertraunsvoll can be booked.
