My room was 115, a well appointed luxurious beachfront pool villa. Even before my arrival, I experienced nothing but professionalism and prompt service from the staff at Banyan Tree....

First time in the Seychelles and am not sure that we chose the right place. The setting is amazing but this hotel seems to struggle with too many niggling problems that eventually stop one from from being truly happy to have stayed here. This hotel has to compete on price and quality with others we have stayed at . It's...

It is now like 1000 Euros per week more expensive, but exactly the same; the Jacuzzi did not work properly two years ago, and continued not to work this time. We asked for a repair four...

Issues experienced: • The bathroom window had a one inch gap at the bottom which wasn’t fitted properly (Please see the pictures). When I asked maintenance to repair it they could only put tape on it to fill the hole. Definitely not 5 star. • The front door to the villa didn’t close properly and left a similar size gap...
