S C. Couples - 14/10/2019 AccorHotels review

Although only a one night stay we made the most of the facilities and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Food and service all round was excellent and the setting of the place is just amazing. Our villa was situated so we couldn't see a single other villa and were not overlooked at all so felt very private and relaxing. Would highly recommend.

Wei Couples - 09/10/2019 AccorHotels review

Very satisfied with the check in/check out time. Due to the limit of direct flights, we had to arrive at the hotel in early morning before 7am. The hotel staff kindly helped us arrange the breakfast and shortly after we finished breakfast, the room is ready. The check out time is also extended to late afternoon although we didn't stay that long. It's very considerate for us who travelled a long way and I really appreciated it. The partial Seaview swimming pool villa has a good private space. We enjoyed staying at room, in swimming pool and outside chairs/sofa. The staff cleaned the room frequently and maintained the room tidy and comfortable. The management team is willing to listen to the customers, during our stay, in a cocktail party, we made some recommendations to a manager from India, he is patient to hear from us and kindly explained to us for some questions we raised. Most of the issues are solved immediately such as we would like to clean the feet before entering the room. We are satisfied to see the improvement. The lady working in sushi bar and breakfast restaurant who is from the Philippines is very kind, professional and always patiently to guests. However, there are some things I'm not satisfied. For example, the concierge office helped us book ferry tickets and told us the confirmation letter will be sent to our room on the next day, but we didn't get it and eventually we have to check it again with the concierge staff to remind her to find the confirmation. I'm glad to find some staff from China working in the hotel, especially for helping Chinese guests. It's very thoughtful, however, they seemed not well trained, and not familiar with their job. I expected they could be more professional rather than just do some translation. In evening buffet, I reminded the restaurant staff the metal pot covers are too hot for guests to touch. It should usually have a mat for guests to remove the covers. I'm surprise to see the waiter just listen and smile without taking any further actions. What made me upset most is on the first day when we arrived, the staff who led us to restaurant for breakfast, he seemed to forget the guests are following him and almost slammed the door to our faces. Overall, I still think our stay with Raffles Seychelles is a great experience and a good memory. All of these negative comment is not a compliant but a hope to make the hotel better place to stay. I will like to recommend Raffles Seychelles to my friends and I will definitely visit again for my vacation in Seychelles.

Mohamed D. Couples - 30/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Raffles Seychelles is by far one of the best resorts we have been to. The service is impeccable, the staff is courteous, welcoming and warmly professional. My wife and I travel a lot and we were delighted by our stay in Raffles. The manager even took time top play several Pétanque rounds with us over few drinks which we greatly appreciated. On top of that, the resort is perfectly located offering marvelous views. We will definitely come back or give priority to Raffles hotel when visiting a new country. A must do with no hesitation !

Excellent service in an enchanting place

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Marc-emmanuel V. Couples - 14/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Service was in general outstanding: smiling and professional, quick reaction, never anything out of the way. Common areas, gardens and villas well arranged / equipped / beautifully done Very good a la carte cooking and buffets - A pity however that the international cuisine restaurant is closed at times, which leaves only a limited choice of Asian cuisine, which are not necessarily to the liking of all people All excursions / taxis are extremely expensive and one feels a bit like cheated - Taxi-boat to La Digue not only expensive but skipper neither nice nor helpful - On the way out, we went through rain and choppy waters, and there was not a word of attention, while my wife was obviously scared. It seemed what only mattered to the skipper was getting us there, full stop. For the price paid, we could have expected more.

Excellent location, perfect installations and the best service by well trained employees!

A gem in paradise

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Parikshith Couples - 05/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Beautiful resort with each villas having a picturesque view. The beauty of the resort is enhanced by the service provided by the staff. Each and every staff member provides a detailed attention tou your requests and go out if thier way to make your stay comfortable. Buggy services were on time and no delay. Food was brilliant especially octopus curry. Sundowner at anse lazio is a must experience for every guest staying here. Villa has all the required amenities that one requires. Private pool at has beautiful views. Early morning rising among the bird chirps is a feeling that one can only experience but not described. Concierge arranges all the trips to nearby beautiful islands as well as tours to discover the beauty of Praslin. They provide detailed explanation of everything and suggest only the best for you. I would definitely recommend everyone visiting Praslin to spend thier time at this beautiful resort.

Dear Mr. G., Thank you for your perfect review and your kind and encouraging words. We will be sure to share your feedback with the team as they will be delighted to know you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated their services. We wish you a wonderful weekend ahead and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future, possibly for another special anniversary. Kind regards, The Raffles Team

Very nice location and food - but a lot of problems during the registration process

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Juan Couples - 26/08/2019 AccorHotels review

The hotel is fabulous; the villas, the location, the catering, the services - all were amazing. I am however concerned about an incident that we had during the registration process that, ten days after having registered, is still on-going. My credit card (the one I used to book the hotel room) was stolen and replaced and so I did not have it with me when I arrived on-site (logically, it did not exist any longer). The registration process was chaotic, as a result, and I had to pay a second time the hotel villa (slightly over EUR 3000). The service was poor - no time was given to me to even check if I had enough money on my account to pay a second time and I was not able to use my AMEX card for reasons that are unclear to me. Then, it appears the funds were refunded to me - yet they do not appear in my bank account - as it seems the funds were refunded on the credit card that was cancelled. I would really ask for help and a solution for this situation as I have paid twice for the amazing villa but would like to get the funds reimbursed at once, ten days after having arrived and a week after having left it. Apart from that - the internal communication was poor. We were not notified about the refund (I had to ask several times), no phone call, no message, despite our anxiety the day of our arrival and through our stay, which we communicated to staff in the front desk on a daily basis. It was not until I sent an email, back in Paris, that I got news about the bank refund (which led to the conclusions stated above - a refund made on a card that does not exist any longer), and despite having asked for a bank transfer (and given my IBAN details to the staff in charge that day). A mess.

Dear Juan, Thank you for taking the time to share you detailed feedback with us, please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience with your arrival experience which has left a sour taste to your otherwise pleasant stay with us. I believe my colleague Samia is in touch with you and the matter will be sorted through your bank in the coming few days. Should there be anything we can do to assist you further, please do not hesitate to let me know. Please rest assured that steps have been taken to have better communication and follow take place should the same happen again in the future inconveniencing other guests, and once again, please accept my sincere apologies. As mentioned, should the issue not be sorted in the coming days, please do not hesitate to let us know, and we will contact our bank to assist if needed. Kind regards, Salwa Razzouk Resort Manager

Nice stay but not spectacular

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Ginnette H. Couples - 22/08/2019 AccorHotels review

Property is gorgeous and we enjoyed the stay. There weren't any stand out moments unlike with other Grand Property stays and overall the service at this resort is the one area that lets it down.

Dear Ms. H., Thank you for taking the time to give us your constructive feedback and insight to the shortcomings you experienced during your stay. Please accept our sincere apologies and rest assured that we will address the comments mentioned and will put emphasis on training for friendlier and more efficient service. Thanks again for the feedback, and have a lovely Sunday evening. Kind regards, The Raffles Team
