    Location 7.25 /10

    At Amitié on the west coast of Praslin, directly on the seashore on the beautiful beach of Grand'Anse. Travelling from the airport located 1 mile away, takes 10 minutes on foot with luggage on casters! 

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    10 rooms are fitted with king size beds, television, safe, individual air-conditioning with ceiling fan, a big equipped terrace with a sea view, two armchairs, one table and even a clothes dryer. On the other hand, there is no direct telephone line. Calls are routed through a switchboard. The bathroom comprises a corner bath furnished with a shower, wash hand basin, bidet and non-separate toilets. Hairdryer and guest supplies are provided. A plus: you do not need a plug adaptor. There is room-service from 7 am to 7 pm.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1995 in a beautiful tropical garden, the Villas de Mer was renovated in 2002 and now has a new look, moving from 6 to 10 rooms. While 7 rooms are located in 3 villas, the 3 new rooms are fitted in a big "Creole" style house. A 82 ft long and 5 ft deep swimming pool lies in the middle of a peasant tropical garden, with about ten wooden deckchairs equipped with mattresses and parasols. Towels are supplied directly in the rooms. The restaurant is built behind the garden, just in front of the sea, with one part inside extended by a terrace, and in front a small airy straw hut with wooden tables and chairs directly on the sand.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Suitably located on the seafront, the hotel's restaurant serves breakfast as buffet, lunch à la carte and a common dinner, solely for the guests of the "Villas des Mer". Dinner is also served as a buffet twice or three times a week. Créole and international dishes are served on a terrace or inside, on request and depending on the weather. A kiosk on the seashore serves as a restaurant, serving barbecues and salads for lunch, with fresh fishes caught by local fishermen in the morning. A bar serving various cocktails is attached to the restaurant.

    Beach 8.20 /10

    The superb beach of Grand' Anse is located at the feet of the tropical garden of the "Villas des Mer". Surrounded by coconuts and magnificent tamanus, having white sand and clear water, it is fitted with about ten plastic deckchairs with mattresses, a shower and parasols. The beach bar serves you on your deckchair. You can admire Cousin and Cousine islands located across. From May to October, north-west easterlies bring algae onto the shore.

    To know

    It is the same proprietor who owns the Britannia, where the Villas de Mer laundry and washing services are located. A free shuttle service transports the guests to Anse Lazio and Anse Volbert, three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; departure at 10 am and return at 4 pm.

      • Package deals in mai 2015 Posted on 2015-07-10 En famille - 3 à 5 nuitées (Chambre sans vue)

        Bel hôtel à taille humaine, personnel sympathique, piscine très agréable. Malheureusement, la demi-pension est vraiment très décevante, c'est dommage. Notre suite était propre, climatisée et le lit de bonne qualité. Cependant, inutile de prendre une suite, une chambre supérieure offre le même confort et les mêmes équipements. La suite est juste plus grande. A savoir : des algues envahissent la plage d'avril à octobre.

      • Advantages

        Piscine, prêt de canoë, belle chambre, resto avec vue mer

      • Disavantages

        Demi-pension pas à la hauteur, pas de vue mer depuis les chambres, un peu excentré.
