Fawlty Towers in Praslin

Posted Jul 29, 2017
Palm Beach is a pleasant colonial-style building with large, comfortable rooms, a decent freshwater pool and located on a spot for beautiful sunsets. All of which is completely let down by the manager, who has seemingly caught some episodes of Fawlty Towers and mistaken it as a guide to hoteliers rather than a classic British sitcom. Around the hotel he marches, lording it over guests and staff alike, making you feel less like a paying customer than an interloper on his private estate. The hotel lacks wifi included in the room rate, happy and empowered staff, and a Cybil to keep its Basil in check.

We arrived at 7:15am and they are very nice to let us to check in earlier, but the room is just okay. The hotel location is good near airport, valle de mai and ferry

Lovely hotel on the beach

Posted Sep 2, 2016
Pros: Hotel right on the beach with amazing views over the sea. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: No shampoo or body wash provided.
Location: Not far from the airport in a small settlement that had a variety of eating places. Lovely local beach with shallow sea that is easy to explore.
Made to feel very welcome. Staff very friendly. lovely room with a big bed.

Barely a 3 Star standard.

Posted Oct 31, 2015
Pros: The pool was cleaned daily and although small, a pleasure to swim in. The rooms were also cleaned daily to a good standard.
Cons: Service and management interest. Better wi-fi included in the price and extended to the rooms. Better garden maintenance and service generally.
Location: Good location at the end of the beach, with shops nearby.
Not only was there no welcome drink there was no welcome at all. The management staff were generally disinterested and left junior staff to do the work. The TV was limited to 2 channels and Wi-fi was charged for, but access was slow and limited to reception area and only part of the restaurant.

Very nice and quiet ... Palm Beach H - Grand Anse

Posted Jun 7, 2011 on Hotels
This is is a very nice small hotel. In my view it was worth the money. The view was spectacular, but perhaps not unusual for Seychelles. The beach was beautiful, but not ideal. Elsewhere, I would have said "wow" but in Seychelles, I found myself disappointed by sinking pits of mud underwater in the beach. Also, while nice and quiet, the beach is so flat that I never reached a depth of of my armpits (and I think I went out nearly a half mile ... or so it felt). However, the staff is exceptional. While they may not seem over-the-top friendly, they know what they are doing and they pay attention. My GF had a very odd request at one meal, and by the next morning all the staff knew about it and it was ready for every subsequent meal, even though the menu is supposed to be fixed and not a-la-carte. If you are a "germa-phobe" you might not like it, because the tiny ants that are everywhere. They don't bite and are harmless, but (at least at the ground level) they are pervasive.

Clean Rooms, WiFi, No Cable TV

Posted Dec 10, 2009
This was a very clean two star hotel. The rooms were clean and looked like they had been recently updated. All public areas were open air including the restaurant. The room had a very good AC. The TV was small and had only one channel in French. WiFi Internet was available in the room for a small fee.

Håller inte vad det lovar

Posted Nov 23, 2016 on Hotels
Hotellet ser jättefint ut och ligger alldeles vid havet men att kunna bada där är bara att glömma för hotellet ligger på fel sida av ön, något vi inte visste då. Poolen som finns på hotellet ser mindre välkommande ut. Vattnet är så grumligt att man inte ser botten. Rummet lovade gratis wi-fi, hårtork, kaffekokare och mindre minibar. Wi-fi fanns endast att tillgå på en liten yta vid receptionen för en kostnad på 15 euro/dygn!! Hårtork och kaffekokare fanns, men de hade endast europeisk kontakt och ingen adapter fanns. Minibaren var en tomt kylskåp instoppad i en garderob. Sänglamporna bestod av endast nakna glödlampor. Frukosten var väl ok, fast man hade önskat att juicen varit färsk och inte gjord på utspädd koncentrat och sylten varit gjord på färska lokala produkter nu när ön kryllar av dessa härligheter.
