The staff is very nice and helpful all the time. We enjoyed the food, specially the breakfast was really good. The place is quiet and really nice, possibility of snorkeling in front of the hotel. The bridge with the salty swimming pool, couch and chairs to see the sunset was amazing too !

What a lovely place! Everyone at the hotel made us feel very welcome; they were so friendly and helpful. Name checks for Ahmed, Jimmy, Nirakar, Joe, Anne-Margaret (in the spa), Patrick and Ajay. There were many others whose names I am unable to remember; apologies to them. Our rooms were perfectly placed with ocean views and sandy beach just a short walk away. The food was very varied and delicious, with a great selection to choose from each evening. Plenty of fish options too. The deck, with sea water pool, was brilliant for watching the amazing sunsets and for snorkelling beneath. Fishes waiting to be fed and photographed! Look out for bats, lizards, tenrecs (up in the hill behind the hotel) and over the ocean, the frigates and fairy terns.

Our 8 day stay t the CoCo de Mer was a relaxing treat after a few days on La Digue. From the personal welcome by Philip and the chef to the cheery farewell from barmen Joe & Patrick the staff really made our holiday. The restaurant provided gluten free products at every meal meaning this coeliac holidaymaker was very well looked after! Our room was only a few steps from the fine sandy beach. The over water pool and deck allowed us to swim and snorkel with a huge batfish and many of his colourful fishy friends. It's also a perfect place to watch the sunset with a beer or the signature CoCo de Mer Swizzle cocktail. Hire a bike to cycle up the coast and try out the kayaks to explore the nearby coastline. We really enjoyed our nature walk with Jimmy, his local knowledge of flora and forna is only matched by his pride in, and love for, his island home. Thank you all for a great holiday.

Rooms are great in Black Parrot Suites. As for the food, we enjoyed each meal we had during our 10 days stay. We had breakfast and dinner included. There is a lot of food to pick from. Even though it is less food than usually in resorts and these kind of places this was actually refreshing. It was still a lot of food to choose from and everything is so tasteful and you don't feel you are "missing something". Even with cloudy weather in July we had a great stay here and enjoyed every single day. And once more, staff here is great. And cheers to Ahmed, a great guy working there with who we had fun every day that he was working. He and rest of the stuff helped us a lot with advices and suggestions on what should we visit on Praslin and La Digue each day.

An exceptional place!! We loved our stay at the Coco de Mer Hotel in September 2022. The facilities are beautiful, modern & clean, everything was above our expectations and way better than what we had experienced so far at other places in the Seychelles. However, what stood out especially was the positivity and friendliness of the people working here. We have been to many hotels already but never have we experienced such a first class service - it made us feel so welcome and happy all the time! Do yourself a favour and book a few days at this place, you won’t regret it :)

We were at the hotel during the Corona period - May 2021. Apart from the fact that the hotel is perfect - the pool, the rooms, the breakfasts, and the view - we write the reviews because of the staff and especially the hotel manager ASH. When we learned that we had to stay in isolation due to my wife getting sick with Corona - the hotel staff led by ASH took care of everything we needed and more. They made sure we moved to a more spacious room, made sure to talk to the authorities, and took care of all our needs and even groceries from the supermarket. We highly recommend the hotel also because of its beauty and perfect properties but mainly because of the kind and helpful staff. Many thanks to the kind hotel manager ASH :)
