This small beautiful establishment located on the magnificent beach of Côte d'Or allows you to relax. The absence of a real restaurant is compensated for by the well equipped kitchen in every room. A destination for tight purses with a good quality/price ratio.

    Location 7.5 /10

    On the east coast of Praslin, directly on the seashore along Côte d'Or. Les Villas d'Or are located a stone's throw from Tante Mimi's casino, the only one on the island. Sainte-Anne bay, Praslin wharf is only 2 miles away. For transfers from the airport located about 6 miles away, count 20 minutes.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    The villas are fitted with spacious living-rooms with terraces covered with wooden floors on the oceanfront. They are all on the groundfloor and can be accessed easily. The rooms have a big king size bed, individual air-conditioning with ceiling fan, television with DVD player and video-recorder (many films to rent from the reception), a big electronic safe and a smaller manual one. The advantage of the villas: the kitchen is equipped with a fridge and freezer, microwave oven and an electric oven, as well as 4 electric cookers. Tea and coffee facilities, as well as milk, sugar and mineral water are offered. The bathrooms have a shower, sink, hairdryer and a bidet, but no bathtubs. There are no welcome products, except 3 bars of soap for each room: bring along your bathing gel and shampoo. The toilets are not separated.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Les Villas d'Or can be reached through a flowery alley which appropriately leads you off the road directly to the sea, in an exotic private setting. Built in 2000, the architecture of the 10 villas blends perfectly with this heavenly setting, where a small 345 ft² and 5 ft deep swimming pool sits, equipped with a dozen plastic deckchairs and parasols. At least 3 gardeners take care of the lush tropical garden surrounded by coconut palms, veloutiers and takamakas, where you can relax on a bench, in one of the 2 hammocks or on the swing. Finally, some giant tortoises move around in an enclosure.

    Food and drink 6.95 /10

    Designed as furnished apartments with an equipped kitchen for you to prepare your own meals, Les Villas d'Or has no restaurant, but transports its guests free of charge to a nearby one, "chez Tante Mimi". It also takes 10 minutes of trekking to get there. Watch out, meals taken in this restaurant are billed separately. It is a 'table d'hôte' with a fixed menu. Breakfast is also served directly on the veranda of your room for an additional 9 pounds sterling, from 7:30 am to 3 pm. Note that a cook is available on request to prepare meals for about 20 US$. Furthermore, management can assist in your shopping. Shops and restaurants are located a few minutes away from the hotel on foot.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    Located on Côte d'Or, Les Villas d'Or has a large lovely beach with white fine sand, surrounded by takamakas. The water is specially clear there. You can admire the Curieuse, Saint-Pierre et Chauve-Souris islands. The beach of Côte d'Or is quite patronised because of the long line of hotels on that side of the coast. Nothing common, however, with Côte d'Azur! The hotel has neither deckchairs nor parasols but a shower to rinse your body with. From May to September, South-East trade winds bring algae to the shore.

    To know

    Les Villas d'Or does not have a restaurant and the guests staying on half board will eat at the neighbouring restaurant, "Chez Tante Mimi", which has an agreement with the hotel. However, all rooms are fitted with a large well equipped kitchen, and breakfast is served direcly in the room.
    There is free transportation to Chez Tante Mimi and to the nearby casino. Know finally that 3 hours of bicycle rental is available on the first day.

    Lodging advice

    For those seeking more privacy, villa A is ideal, as it is rather removed. Even if it is the nearest to the sea, it does not have the best view, as it is hampered by vegetation, which ensures its privacy.
    Only villa B is without a king size bed, but has 2 separate beds.
    Big families and groups of friends, will like the 2 superior villas, with 2 connecting double rooms. The 8 other villas, which are standard and thus a bit cheaper, have only one double room.
