The hotel staff (for that matter, all the people of the Seychelles) were really genuinely friendly and helpful. Eden Island was an easy 10 minute taxi from the aiport.
Our Appartment was overlooking the marina on one side, and on the other was to the gardens (behind which was the beach - 60 second walk). Facilities within the appt were excellent, and with a number of restaurants at Eden Plaza (as well as a small supermarket), had everything you needed to either eat out, cook in, make a few sandwiches for your hike around the island, prepare a picnic for that secluded beach elsewhere on the island, or do a bbq. Electric buggies (golf carts) are provided to get to and from the villas/appts to the plaza or go to another beach on the island. Easy to hire a car for the day (and drop off at the airport on departure)
There was no WiFi at present at the appt, but the Havana Cafe (Eden Plaza) do free wifi if you buy something. They also have a live band playing on Wed evenings which is particularly good (their guitarist is superb).
Downsides: (i) still some construction going on, but not that noisy - usually between 9am to 2pm. (ii) On the flight path to the airport, but with only a few flights landing per day (most taking off towards the sea), it's not exactly Heathrow Airport.
Would we come back: Yes definitely.

It was one of our best staying in this luxury hotel. We enjoyed our staying and the food in its 3 restaurants is really delicious and we loved the breakfast buffet which has many options and loved the Margrita Pizza and JeKo restaurant.
