I can't express how excellent this hotel is. From the warm and welcoming staff to the newly renovated hotel, everything exceeded our expectations. The breakfast was so fresh and the pancakes are one of the best we've ever had! The infinity pool which was added recently was the highlight of our vacation. This is by far our favorite hotel during our visit to Seychelles. The staff was very friendly and not pretentious. As we moved on to other islands, we still compared our other stays with coco de mer and none of them compared to our experience here. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that wants a 5 star service! Thank you again for making this trip so memorable for us. 💕💕
I stayed 3nights in July 2016, after visit Mahe I took a small plane flight which was only about 15minutes with nice view. The hotel is located at the seaside with beautiful views, Prasin Island has a lot scenic plances for you to explore such as plantation and great beaches. The hotel offers very nice room with good seaview, very clean and spacious. Comfortable stay and there was a dancing show at the lobby at night during my stay. Recommend to all.
This is a huge property located on Praslin island. The place is very beautiful and serene. We stayed is the black parrot suites. The rooms were amazing and clean and provided a beautiful view of the ocean. The resort has a private beach which is good to relax and do snorkeling. The hotel has few restaurants, musical nights and provides assistance to nearby attractions. The staff is helpful and friendly. Overall, a relaxing place to spend time with your loved one.
We stayed here for the final 2 nights of our honeymoon after staying on Mahe for the first part. We took the 15 minute flight over which was very efficient. Praslin is a lovely island, very beautiful and the hotel is in a lovely setting with its own private beach. However, the hotel was a bit of a let down. Our room was spacious but certainly not 4 star. The towels were thin and looked very old. The rooms were spacious but the air conditioning was very noisy. There were chipped cups in the bedroom. We had a problem with the shower which flooded the bathroom on the first night. We needed to call out room service in the middle of the night on our 2nd night and despite ringing a number of times the "24 hour service", no one answered the phone. We were disappointed that despite our travel agent telling the hotel we were on our honeymoon, and we mentioned it on arrival, there were no special treats. We stayed at 2 other hotels on our honeymoon, and both of them made our trip really special with champagne, flowers etc. We ate in the buffet restaurant and the food was ok, nothing special, found it quite oily. Despite being surrounded by mango trees, there wasn't a mango in sight on the menu. The soup seemed like it had come out of a tin. The staff weren't very attentive and only seemed interested if you were going to be ordering extras, even though we were half board and had already paid for our meals. They seemed more interested in talking to themselves than any of the guests. The steps leading down to the private beach were quite broken and should really have been sealed off. A couple of times on the beach, our quiet time was interuped by very noisy staff chatting on the beach. There was no drink service available on the beach, which you would have expected on a private hotel beach. Someone else's review mentioned sitting on private beach for 14 hours, not sure how they did this as it got dark at 6.30pm every night! Good points: We went on the nature trail and the leader was exellent, very knowledgable. The same guide was later by the kayaks giving advice to newbys like ourself who had never kayaked before. We found the library very useful.
We were in PRASLIN (Seychelles) from 14 until 19 of november 2017. We had choosed the Coco de Mer Hotel. It's was realy good. The staff is very friendly (for exemple Ginette at the dining room). The hotel is quiet, and on the west-south coast of Praslin. There is a beautifull romantic hike on the beach from the hotel (in direction of Grand Anse) .... with nobody. We have rent a car (directly to the desk). But you can use the bus to go to the main tourist places of the island (vallée de Mai, Anse Volbert, Anse Georgette, Anse Lazio, ...). All these places are at 10 -15 km from the hotel. Be carefull, the roads are very narrow and the driving is left. But it's realy possible with low speed (40KM/h). The food is good. The rooms was clean but need refreshments (we had the 423). Every week they organise musical evenings. The Hotel is closed from the end of novembre 2017 until February for modernization works ... but they keep the staff ! It's a good place.
The hotel is about to close to be upgraded - but the suites are situated right over the sea and have incredible views. The private pool area is only accessible to the 14 suites so was never overcrowded. The service was just great, the staff are fantastic and they added to the friendly atmosphere. There isn't a huge beach but it is stunningly beautiful and there are hammocks and loungers set out. We were given fresh bottles of water every morning. Wine wasn't overpriced - about the same as a UK restaurant. Food was great in the evenings, each night had a different theme. Breakfast wasn't the best but was perfectly fine, that would be our only suggested area for improvement aside from the room upgrades. Lunchtime food wasn't overpriced at all, so we didn't feel the need to leave the hotel. The location is what really makes this hotel stand out, it is picture perfect, the views are just incredible. Nearby is a rainforest which is a great way to spend a rainy morning! The hotel also offers a complimentary shuttle to a stunning beach which is true Seychelles perfection. We loved this hotel and can't wait to see what it looks like after the refurb!
The beaches at the resort are awesome and the Black Parrot Suites are very luxurious and view from the rooms is breathtaking. The food is average, a bit bland esp by my Indian standards. The jetty at the resort is very relaxing and gives a feeling as if you are sitting in the middle of the sea. The Spa is also very relaxing
A beautiful hotel in an idyllic setting. The rooms are large, airy and spotlessly clean. Air con and a ceiling fan provide a cool room to escape from the high temperatures outside. The meals from the buffet were amazing and enough choice to please even the pickiest eaters. Each evening was a themed buffet, oriental, surf and turf , creole etc. All the staff were really lovely and very very helpful, each query or request greeted with a smile. If you are into wine, speak to Sanjay , the sommellier, very knowledgeable and will make great suggestion for wines to accompany your meal. At the end of jetty, you will find fish awaiting to be fed. The very large fish aren't as quick as the little one to get bread, so have learned to put their heads out of the water and open their mouths so you can give them something. Pralin is a quiet island with amazing beaches. We hired a taxi for the day to see a little more.. Can recommend Dara, he was easy to spend time with and told us so much about the island and the coca de mer. Fascinating day. Thank you for a memorable holiday, and like to think we will be back one day
The place is very serene . Quite beautiful . .Main problem is the ferry between praslin to mahe .. When we travelled the sea was not at its best so there were a lot of hiccups .. As for the hotel Everything was perfect .The welcome drink to the check out .. FOR INDIANS wanting to stay at this place . There are two Indians (Ajay and one bengali guy i forgot the name ) Working over there in the breakfast section and the dinner section . They can help you get your own kinda food . Overall the place was good .
On the sea with fun pier lounge to sit over the water watching the sunset. Very quiet, food excellant and staff so nice. The rooms are spacious and have sea views but the air conditioning was noisy so I slept with ear plugs! Gather there is going to be a revamp next year which will probably tackle the air con problem.
