            Please, if you like your money: don't book this hotel. At arrival on 29/April/2012 I've found that my room was on the 4th floow and no elevator, no TV, no Safe, no Telephone. The room floor was full of sand and the bed was also covered with a thick sand dust due to the constructions works that were in progress in the hotel. You cannot sleep before 02AM due to the customers noise and screams: the bar is outdoors and the noise echoes. The bathroom towels are "yellow" and not clean. When taking a shower, the water flows in the bedroom. I've stayed one night and I moved to another hotel in the next morning.

            Good value for money and the beach is really nice. Hotel is right on the beach which is the main plus from this hotel as well as value for money

            Don't expect luxury but good value for money and the beach is the real bonus

            We had stayed before. Perfect location for a short break. Hotel had been modernised since previous which added to the experience.

            Location, ocean view, friendly staff, nicely designed rooms, ocean view restaurant

            birds flying around in the breakfast room and walking between the baskets with bread and cereals, restaurant very noisy,

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            It's location and proximity to a selection of good restaurants/shops/bureau de change/evening local street market. Live entertainment in the bar most evenings. Food was good, breakfast was tasty. Proper bacon, not the fatty/stringy stuff normally served on holiday. Resolving any problems/issues we had to a satisfactory conclusion. Good lighting in the rooms, enabled us to have a nice atmosphere. Effective air conditioning. Pool temperature was perfect. There was a nice relaxing lounge area on the 1st floor but think it could be utlised better, ie bar service/guest library (for those books that have been read and we don't want to carry home).

            We had a deluxe double ocean view which had a separate lounge, but there was a distinct poor design of the the room/fittings, eg there was 2 sockets by the kettle but the plug did not fit the socket so we had to plug kettle in at opposite end of room! The bathroom was quite spacious and could easily accommodate a double shower instead of a single shower cubicle, which was squashed into a corner, We thought the 'breakfast bar' in the lounge area of our room was a waste. We used the 2 stools as coffee tables by the sofa, the other was used to put the kettle on at the opposite end of the lounge area. I had to instruct the breakfast cook on cooking sausage/bacon/eggs so it was all ready at the same time. Inconsistency of serving beer in glass or plastic glasses. One evening in Mahek restaurant they tried to serve us plastic glasses! I don't like the 'Smart Choice' in the hotel name, it makes it sound like a supermarket's bargain brand. Lift not yet working but sure it will be very soon.

            The proximity to the beach.

            The room doesn't have any amenities,the Internet on the tv doesn't even work,the wireless Internet only works by the swimming pool plus very slow. The half board menu they offer its the same menu through out the week except on Sunday,the staffs are not even professionals and luck friendly approach with guests, the rooms by the beach 3 of them are very noisy because of thin walling material used, all in all I regret that I spent that much money for 3nights in a hotel doesn't even provided us with the very basic things you will get from any other hotel on the island, Mahe is beautiful and have a lot of hotels which offer so many services to guests as per your pocket but not coral strand!!! Please Booked.net revise your deals with them as they don't have 2/3of what they say about their hotel! It will question your repetition in the future. Thank you

            Location. Being on one of nice beaches of Mahe, beau vallon.

            - Delay in check-in: The receptionist was on the phone for more than 5 minutes and made us wait while we were tired and wanted to check in quickly. - Forgot passports: The receptionist took our passport for a photocopy and forgot to return them and after we checked in asked her about the passports and she just realized the mistake. - A/C in our room was not working....raised the issue and took 30 minutes for a technician to come and took them another 30 minutes to realize that the issue cannot be fixed so they had to change our room....pack-unpack again ! - Cockroach in the bathroom ! - Breakfast not good: Breakfast is not very colorful and juices are not fresh! - Maintenance noise: The hotel is under renovation and the noise of construction work from early morning is very inconvenient!

            Nice place and location. The staff were warm and room was well laid out. However, the washroom had a cramped feeling.

            The internet facility was very poor in the room. The menu at the continental restaurant was very limited, especially for someone not into seafood.

            Nothing....only the besch what is not belong to them...is not worted to stay Manager know nothing how to keep customers happy...

            There is nothing to like....is cheap place for big money....without good servise...good is horrible....specially buffet breakfast...coffe u cant drink how is terrible

            Clean spacious rooms, everything looks very new, comfortable beds, location, price of food and drinks, response to complaint.

            Room 101 - it's supposed to be sea-view but due to renovation works just outside and it being on the groundfloor, it certainly doesn't classify as seaview. Luckily the staff was very helpful and instantly gave us a fabulous room on the 4th floor with amazing seaview after complaining about the room.

            Located on a very nice beach. Some work still being done on the hotel compound so no parking, even though it was stated there was parking. Good internet access in my room. Excellent breakfast buffet, not just a continental breakfast. Fairly close to bus stop so accessible without having to rent a vehicle or taxi.

            Satellite tv didn't work. They said it was a problem with the provider.

          • Group of friends

            The location at Beau Vallon beach is one of the nicest on the island and it's situated on the other side of the island away from the airport and industrial areas. The real plus is the location. The restaurant isn't the greatest but not bad so you're able to eat your meals and drink by the beach all day long, which we did. And there's a water sports 'kiosk' right down the beach although they're not exactly top-notch (event the Philippines had a legitimate parasailing boat--they just take off from the beach and you run with them).

            The staff was very helpful when we first arrived but it went pretty downhill after that. The special at their restaurant changed after we ordered it and they didn't tell us. They're friendliest and hardest- working staff member was fired after our first day because he was filling in amounts on receipts for customers because their printer didn't work (I don't understand why this was an issue) so we waited unacceptably long for every request the other days. The staff told us conflicting things at times. The shower didn't drain in our room at all so water spilled out even into the hallway. There was no phone or tv (because of construction) but they failed to tell us about the phone. Wi-Fi is painfully slow, too slow to use.

            I have paid for hb even that there is no buffet during dinner; they give me a menu to choose meal!!! What I understand for hb it should be open Buffet not menu.

            Dinner is always the same menu, and not open buffet

            The location is very good. The room was spacious. Breakfast was tasty.

            Be careful about your payment: know exactly how much you should pay. They tried to charge us double. It's written at the website: 50% discount from 15th May, well we stayed after 15th and did not get any discount. Ask twice if you really get a discount.
