We loved this place! It's our sort of hotel: boutique, pretty and friendly. Robert, the owner, is friendly and helpful as was all the staff, particularly the sisters on reception (sorry, we can't remember your names - it's our age!) and Eric the barman. The grounds are lovely and tropical, with lots of fish-filled, trickling water. Our room was spacious... More

Le duc is out last stop before going home. The rooms, the area, the staff, everything is perfect. Beyond expectation. The access to one of the best beach in Praslin is easy, and it's a 5min walks from the restaurants. Wifi is good and rooms are big with a little something who make them special

The hotel itself was outstanding. While most accommodation on Praslin is guest houses or very fancy and expensive hotels, Le Duc offers great value for its money.

Let me first begin by saying that overall our stay at Le Duc was perfectly 'acceptable'. The superior rooms are enormous and very modern with literally ice cold A/C! Access to the beach was incredible and they even allowed us to use beach chairs for free. And yes, there is a "but"... I was incredibly disappointed on a few fronts... More

So lucky we picked the Le Duc! Such a nice hotel with charming bungalows, beautiful, very spacey rooms - lovely, very helpful personnel, great service (incl. maintenance), good food (both breakfast & dinner), location just a 2-min walk from the Anse Volbert. We will definitely be back!
