The resort is just amazing for people on honeymoon, family, groups, etc. We took the Black Parrot Suits room no. 1. and we think this one of the best rooms available in the resort. Amazing sunsets, great private pool with complementary cocktails and snacks. What more can one expect. Great Staff
Let me say from the start that I am not a great lover of buffets but every hotel in Seychelles seems to offer one at least once a week, some every night and some do nothing else. For me they are almost always a disappointment and I just do not like having to keep jumping up and down to serve myself food that has been sitting around too long. The Coco der Mer buffet is an exception to my rule. We had friends staying at the hotel and they invited us to dinner, which just happened to be the buffet that night. The food was fresh and delicious and all the staff were happy, welcoming and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxing and even the music did not grate. Our party of six were all delighted and had an enjoyable evening and for me personally, no upset stomach, which seems to happen all to often when I dine out nowadays. It is always expensive to eat out in Seychelles, wherever you go, but I believe that the Coco der Mer offers the best value on Praslin island. My wife and I will definitely be returning for the buffet in the near future.
Coco de Mer-Black Parrot Suites in Praslin Island was one of the best resort I have stayed with family. Perfect place for honey moon couples and off course for families too. I had an awesome experience. The place is very peaceful, quiet and perfect place if anyone is looking for relaxation away from the crowded world in the beauty of nature. The staff from all the departments were excellent and provided excellent service. Ajay from the restaurant gave us a superb service. Even though there was not much for baby in the menu, he use to make something special for my baby everyday during our stay. The menu also had limited items for vegetarians, but Ajay got something special for my vegetarian wife also :). Other staff Deep and Abhishek were also very helpful. All staff from the hotel were very kind and always ready to serve you better. I would strongly recommend this resort if anyone looking for a vacation in Praslin Island.
Went here for our honeymoon and it was such a lovely hotel and very nice food. And some fantastic cocktails made out of coconuts served in the evening but be careful they pack a punch. Staff are really lovely they can’t do enough for you really is a lovely place.
We travelled Heathrow to Mahe then 15mins flight to Praslin so a very easy journey and greeted and transferred to Coco de Mer without a hitched. The staff were very helpful and friendly. the food delicious with plenty of choice. A lovely location and enjoyed snorkelling, walking tours and a trip to Anse Lazro-best snorkelling of all. We would love to go back - and recommend the hotel to anyone. we ranged in age from 80 yrs. to 19yrs. -
6 of us stayed here for 5 days. Our rooms were spacious, on the beach front, very comfortable beds and spotlessly cleaned each day. Food was brilliant- excellent choice. Staff delightful, always chatty and helpful. Some snorkelling off the beach, though better from Anse Lazio, which the hotel provided a bus three times a week free of charge. Pool was smallish and rather warm, but that didnt affect our holiday at all- sea/snorkelling was our priority. Nature trail was also good (free guide provided). I would also recommend organising a couple of excursions. We were so sorry to leave, and definitely rate this place and island if you prefer to get away from it all...we found Mahe to be more commercial/expensive/busier, but good to get the contrast.
Were to start ... I love everything about this hotel! The only down side was need for renovation, but we got there in wrong time - just before when hotel supposed to be closed for renovation. However that didn't prevent us from having amazing holidays there! The staff - fantastic, friendly people, who help you any time and with anything you need. Chatty manager in the restaurant always made us laugh at the breakfasts or dinners. We could talk for hours to the bar staff and were welcomed with big smile any time - Edwin is the highlight of our stay there! Room with jacuzzi in the room and walk in shower. Fresh flowers every day and big comfortable bed. Hotel is situated lush forest and the vegetation is just amazing. A lot of tropical birds and the fruit baths was something I did enjoy to see. Amazing sunsets from the pier. There is also lovely walking pat which brings you to small beautiful beach. There was not much beach to lie on, but the swimming pool area was enough. We had nice forest walk provided by one of the staff who organizes activities in the hotel. He has good knowledge and explained a lot about the geological history, vegetation and animals on islands. Hotel organizes trip to one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen - Anse Lazio.
Coco de Mar-Black Parrot Suites-best holiday ever, Phillip and his staff including Gregory and the Ladies in Black Parrot Suites just outstanding. Just be aware its a long way to go. We went via Dubai then onto the Seychelles then Ferry to Praslin. Emerites Airlines also great. Just be aware your tour operators tells you transfer times and confirms, as we were not met and greeted on 2 occasions and nearly missed the ferry transfers. Once there just chill-out big time and be pampered like never before.
We were 4 couples with our kids(infants) for this tour to Seychelles. Staff: Very much stern face. More often than not I was greeted with no smile on the faces. Sometimes I would feel very awkward and cold to even ask for help. Food: Breakfast had good spread. There wre a Lot of variety for both Veg and Non Veg eating people. Baby friendly sitting. We were with kids and infants so couple of times they allowed us to take breakfast for kids to the room also which was a very good gesture of understanding. BUT THE FOOD IN RESTAURANT HAS TO BE AVOIDED. ITS PATHETIC. Rooms: Spacious. Clean. Comfortable. Good View. Clean Bathroom. A small little kitchen with kettle.It had big bath tub in room right in fornt of the bed. There were cots also for infants. Separate reading place where u could just sleep on couch kind of bed and read. Entertainment: A small library kind of thing. Real size chess for kids. That’s pretty much all. Also if not mistaken a bike riding services also available. Beach & pools: Amenities: Wifi in the room and Lobby. No private beach a warf kind of place which is surrounded by sea. It’s a good thing but cannot be a replacement for beach though. If you are a photography enthusiast then you will love to spend time here on the warf. NOTE : A very bad location in Praslin where everything is very far away! You need a car to get into the nearest supermarket. Plus all of that they don't offer complimentary water! You have to pay for it! Seriously! Because it was far from one of the best beaches of praslin, rather one of the best in the whole world, we had to do private transfer. We arranged for the same from the Hotel itself. The driver was a big cheat. Biggest cheat rather. He was took money for Private transfer but was ferrying others in the spare time too. We were with 4 infants and he made us wait for 2 hours with all kids hungry, cranky and crying. On complaining he threatened to us to leave mid way without our bags and money as that was in his coach. When we complained about this to the hotel the same happened as expected “We will look in to it and make sure it does not happen again”. I would have given 4 star happily had above incident not happened; our kids had to suffer which is absolutely not tolerated and accepted. STRONG NO for this place
This hotel is an affordable luxury hotel in praslin island, starting from the entrance to the room everything was just perfect about this hotel, they recently opened the salt water pool on wharf, also there is a seating area, from where you can have spectacular sunset views with your partner, their buffet breakfast is kinda OK , does not have much options for vegetarian guest, all you can have fruits and salads, but staff is very helpful, we carried packed vegetarian meals with us and staff cooked for us without any problem, i must say they serve delicious salad in ala- carte restaurant with stuffed naan, also their desert is lip smacking. overall a wonderful experience and i would love to come back only becoz of service of the staff. thanks
