My girlfriend and I had the privilege of staying here for 3 nights and it was an absolute delight, the venue is immaculate and the service is fantastic. The staff are far enough so as not to make you feel like your being watched but are on hand immediately should you require anything. This is always a valuable trait as sometimes you can be stifled by constant requests in other venues we have visited. The manager Ash welcomed us on our arrival and what a charming and very welcoming guy he is furnishing us with some local knowledge and hotel history, he made a point of finding us upon departure to make sure the hotel and service had lived up to expectations and it really did. The sunsets on the jetty over a soothing cocktail and the very tasty creole food made for a very authentic Seychelles stay
We will definitely be back for more when we hit the praslin shores again especially for the afternoon tea and homemade cookies.
Until next time

My wife and I stayed at Coco de Mer for four nights in Aug. 2018 and had a wonderful time. The amenities were great, there were a few small beaches, neither of which had anybody on them, and the service really made the experience special. Everyone on staff was friendly and helpful, and we felt like we were in good hands the whole time. They also offered a shuttle to Anse Lazio so we were able to see some other parts of the island.

Thank you Matt for being so hospitable and making us feel welcome on your beautiful island called your home. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family on the plane and even though we didn't stay at your gorgeous hotel because we had already booked, we will definitely stay next time.

Had a very relaxing view days at the Coco de Mer in a beachfront room, which had a terrace, garden and our own beachfront relaxation area. The views are sensational and the far end beach is beautiful despite some sea grass. Staff are kind, welcoming and helpful and hotel is small enough to feel like home with gorgeous surroundings. The buffets are fabulous (though not cheap at around £40 each with a glass of wine and water). My complaint is that the hotel does not provide free filtered water - and before the manager comes on here (as I see s/he does on a regular basis and sometimes quite bluntly which actually almost put me off staying in the hotel so please take note) to claim that this would create plastic waste, I have a point to make. I agree totally about the plastic BUT the Constance Ephelia provides daily filtered water in glass bottles. The Coco de mer may not have such resources but what's wrong with allowing guests to refill the initial plastic bottles or their own water bottles free of charge with filtered water from the restaurant rather than charginga hefty fee every time? It seems parsimonious and petty. Luckily the free shuttle bus to the beach stops at a small shop on the way home for guests to restock on drinks and snacks, because Coco de Mer is a little isolated without transport - although you can walk to a tiny shop around 20 minutes away along the quiet but undulating coastal road The free hotel shuttle to stunning Anse Lazio is great, much appreciated, and it's well worth getting a taxi to Vallee de Mai to see the coco de mer palm and black parrots. Overall a very relaxing stay with cheerful staff and a friendly atmosphere without the oppressive swank of other luxury hotels we stayed in on the Seychelles.

Room tip: Upgrade to beach front villa for amaxing view

Dear Guest
Thank you for sharing the experiences of your relaxing few days here with us and for taking the time to write these comments. The team are delighted of their mention - especially that you thought them to be cheerful, friendly, kind and welcoming.
We are glad that you felt like home and appreciated the natural surroundings of the property.
We understand and appreciate your valid comments about bottled water - and the feedback and suggestions accordingly. We are currently looking into various options as well as the logistics of making improvements to the current situation and soon will have this solved - without causing any impact to the environment - and having satisfied guests - all at the same time.
We trust that should you return to Praslin in the future - we will still remain your accommodation of choice on the island.
Wishing you many wonderful memories of your stay here with us.
