    Location 6.97 /10

    Directly near the seashore, on the west coast of Praslin, along Grand' Anse. For transfers from the airport located about 1 mile away, count 5 minutes.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The rooms of La Maison des Palmes are large and pleasant with their small terrace. However, their comfort is basic. All have a mini-bar and direct telephone line. There is no air-conditioning, but their proximity to the seashore, the ceiling fans and the design of the bungalows with high openings allow air to circulate. The absence of television is mitigated by the presence of a TV hall. A safe is also available at the front office.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    La Maison des Palmes is a very attractive establishment, located on the seashore. It comprises a big Creole pavilion all in wood, containing the front office, salons, TV hall, the restaurant and the bar, named Basil's Bar after the owner but also in allusion to the English comic serial "Faulty Towers" with John Cleese. The latter leads directly to the beach and a beautifully designed swimming pool, adorned with deckchairs and parasols. The rooms are distributed in single-storey bungalows with roofs made of palm leaves, located in a beautiful tropical garden. The hotel also has a tennis court.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The hotel's restaurant is located beneath a big pavilion with a roof made of palm leaves and a very exotic atmosphere. International Creole-style dishes are served there as table d'hôte. A few tables are also set on the terrace overlooking the sea. On Wednesday and Saturday, La Maison des Palmes becomes a must-go destination on the island thanks to its typically Creole buffets animated by a local orchestra.

    Beach 8.45 /10

    Located at the foot of the hotel, the beautiful beach of Grand' Anse has all the assets of a dream beach: fine sand, clear water and coconut palms. For the active holidaymakers, a cruise or big game fishing can be organised from the hotel. From November to March, when the North-West trade winds bring a multitude of algae to the shore, free shuttles are put in place to take guests to the other side of the island.

    To know

    The owner of La Maison des Palmes has his own catamaran, fitted with 4 cabins, to take his guests out for big game fishing or a cruise.

      Chalets Côté Mer is only a stone's throw away from Sainte-Anne de Praslin, where boats arrive from Mahé. It is a haven of peace by the waterside with a couple of charming and unassuming chalets, the perfect place to enjoy magnificent landscapes in a simple setting. Ideally situated to explore the island of Praslin, which is a real Garden of Eden, you will get good value for your money in this family establishment.
