We stayed at this guesthouse for a total of 6 nights and it was great. We had the room with view onto the mountain, but could use part of the terrace with view on the sea. In our room we could hear the road, but we didn't find it very anoying. Martha, the good soul of the house is very...

The host of this hotel are so friendly. Although we came early, we are greeted in a friendly manner. There were a great company to chat with. The property itself was outstanding. Right next to the beach. A perfect gateway to a relaxing holiday. The room was clean and spacious. Air conditioning was efficient. Will definitely recommend this place to...

We stayed at this guesthouse on the main road about 10 kms south of Victoria on the main road, and about 6 kms from the airport. We stayed primarily because of its proximity to the airport because taxis are extremely expensive on Mahe. Try $30 to the airport by taxi! 6 km! We were most surprised at the hospitality of...

This is a long overdue review of Dorado. We has stayed for 2 nights on our way out from Seychelles. The villa has a lovely view and is ideally located if you want a quiet space to yourself. However, it will restricting if you don't have your own hired vehicle. Particularly disappointing for us was the room we had which...

Stayed for two nights before going on to other islands. This is convenient to the airport - about a 10 minute drive along the main road south. A bit hard to find as the sign is overgrown with leaves. Lovely position on the beach but a little noisy from the road. Nice breakfast included and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable....
