« The Place To Be »

A birthday weekend that i will never forget. :) To start off the staff was very friendly and welcoming.( Thank you all) The room was beyond my expectation. It was clean and the view was breath taking. The services was the top. The food was very good and very nice restaurants. In general no bad comments at all. Bravo, Bravo Raffle

« The experience was very relaxing »

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the raffles, our only complaint would be the service provided by the concierge was a slightly unorganized, the communication between them and other staff in the area was slow. Other than that our experience was pleasurable and the food at the Pool was great!

« Nice Hotel, don't get a villa anywhere near the reception... »

Hotel/villa was lovely but I cannot understand the design of the hotel. The villas are placed on the hill above the reception/main restaurant. This is all fine and well but you have multiple AC units on top of there that have not been covered and provide a background droning which I can already experience in the city at home. I had to request to be moved as this was really quite loud considering this is the only noise around. We were moved immediately so I do not think this is the first time that Raffles has had this feedback but even from our new location it could still be heard faintly. I think a look at the design here is required, it's crazy to have a property like this in such a peaceful location with this kind of unnecessary noise!

We had a top hill villa, secluded, hence very private. We had a beautiful stay.

« We had the most lovely honeymoon at Raffles Seychelles! »

We stayed at Raffles Seychelles for 4 nights. Before that were on Mahe at The Banyan Tree for 2 nights. The difference couldn't have been more night and day. By the time we left the other hotel we were very discouraged and frustrated with our whole Seychelles experience. Upon arriving at Raffles, our experience was completely turned around. Your service was impeccable. from the Executive Chef greeting us at all meals, to the speed as which the buggies would pick us up, to the amenities and general service-- it was incredible. We only wish we hadn't wasted those other two nights elsewhere. We are going to tell all of our friends to only go to Raffles when visiting the Seychelles!! Thank you for the most memorable honeymoon full of positive experiences and memories to last a lifetime!

« Magical honeymoon »

Amazing place with fantastic staff. We stayed 7 nights in a Panoramic pool villa fir our honeymoon. From start to finish it was truly increadible. The villa was out of this world. Amazing views. There was a bottle of Moët on ice for us on arrival. The pool area and beach were just beautiful and the staff down there really looked after us. My wife had ruptured her Achilles' tendon just 2 days before we arrived so was on crutches and all the staff were inceadibly accommodating with us. Of particular note was Essam at the pool restaurant, Edmond around the pool and Judy around Curieusse restaurant. All of them were increadible friendly and really looked after us. We loved the Curieusse restaurant. Asian and spicy. Just up our street. However our stand out meal was in the Sushi Room. A real feast and a huge amount of food. This place is not cheap. We don't go to this type of hotel normally and really pushed the boat out for our honeymoon. Average evening meal price was just over £200 including a bottle of wine. The wine list was fairly long and some was very pricey. Happily though, the wine at the cheaper end of the list was really drinkable. Overall, an unforgettable trip. The best place we've stayed in by some margin.

« Small issues should have been dealt with better from this calibre of hotel »

The hotel is sumptuous and stunning. Our butler deserves a special mention - Daniel was amazing. No request was a problem and everything asked of him was done so promptly. The rooms are divine and much bigger than expected. The food (we were half board) was the best I've ever experiences in any hotel and everyone was incredibly helpful (with respect to allergies / intolerances within our party). Unfortunately a few smaller issues arose which should really have been dealt with better. Emails sent to reception in advance of arrival were left unanswered. I had asked why the transfers hadn't been included (as per their promotion on the web page and they simply denied it could be included by twisting the interpretation of their website. I requested this clarification and all I got back was *silence*. We emailed with respect to whether we could release some Chinese lanterns - *silence*. I emailed to request my credit from Half Board for myself and my family be applied to the wedding dinner - *silence*. Seemed that wherever they could make more money, they would be responsive but otherwise..... *silence* was the response. We heard another guest requesting a delayed check out by 1hr. They advised him this would be chargeable however when he told them that they had been left waiting to check in for an additional 2.5 hrs, they didn't take money off the room for that, how could they charge for the additional 1 hr on check out... but they simply responded "sorry, that's policy". Reception is poor at best for this level of hotel whereas every other part of service across the hotel was faultless. Except that is for the wedding "co-ordinator" (when she showed up) said all the right things but didn't follow through (wrong flowers used in bouquet, wrong gazebo had been promised, final itinerary was to be sent - remained unsent, lack of clarification on dining options to guests with allergies for wedding meal, etc). The list went on and for your special occasion, there should never have been a list in the first instance. On arranging a wedding from outside your country, in an establishment you are unfamiliar with, is daunting at best. There are so many concerns you have which can easily be put to rest by someone who is familiar with the hotel however this was not done and instead we were left with many frustrations. In summary - a phenomenally beautifully, stunning hotel with food to die for and facilities that meet all your needs whilst exceeding every expectation..... with the exception of reception / wedding co-ordinator. If I was Frederick, I'd be disappointed as these are the things that are within a hotel manager's control and therefore should never have occurred. Pity

« our camerabag got stolen the first night in the house, woke up to find the sliding door open and after much insisting the hotel staff came over and we agreed on that the lock on the door was broken. as the door was broken, »

unfortunatly our camerabag got stolen the first night in the house, with equipment worth plenty. we are two photographers travelling together. we woke up to find the sliding door open to the house and after much insisting the hotel staff came over and agreed on that the lock on the door was broken. the swedish home insurance doesnt cover this case even though there is a police report stating what happend, they belive it was the hotels fault the door wasnt functioning so this trip ended up costing much more than than expected and we are still hoping for justice and reinburstment.

« Worth every penny »

The resort in general is truly beautiful. Villa was very clean and nice. All the people at Raffles Praslin were kind and always helpful. Although service charges are already included in the bill and tip is not required in Seychelles, they will make you feel like you really want to tip every single time you receive their service. Food was delicious so that my wife and I ended up eating in the resort most of the time. Pool was also nice to relax and the private beach was quite and pretty. We even liked the beach more than the famous Anse Source d'Argent in La Digue.

We stayed for only 4 nights in the basic room. We loved it. The hotel was gorgeous. The beach is beautiful (but small). We spent most of our time by the pool which was lovely. Our room exceeded expectations. The staff were all friendly.

« Amazing service, unreal location »

The accommodations, location, amenities, and food were all what you expect to receive from the pictures but the service is what puts Raffles over the top. We stayed at several resorts in Seychelles during our trip but none came close to their staff. They made it an easy and enjoyable retreat!

« Beautiful but slow service »

I felt that for being a raffles the service was the worst I've ever experienced. Multiple times for the phone to just be answered by any staff member - even after having called emergency. The staff seemed to be more in relaxed island mode than most the guests. Restaurant service was also extremely slow. Took about 30/45 min to bring water to the table every sit down. Dissatisfied in general and disappointed in the theft of my friends equipment which caused an extremly uncomfortable stay as it was clearly a staff member to enter her room at night and we all slept with paranoia. The only thing I enjoyed was quality of food. I won't be revisiting but do wish that my insight on your service does well.
