Our first stay at a Raffles

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Peter H. Couples - 20/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We had a pleasant stay with a few minor inconveniences that did not take away from the overall enjoyment. I'd like to summarize the positives and negatives. Negatives: a few defects in our villa were not repaied correctly despite informing the staff, some parts of the villa and pool need renovation, I requested a buggy pick-up from our villa at a certain hour but the buggy did not come and I had to call to the reception again after waiting 10-15 minutes past the agreed pick-up time. The concierge (Brigitte?) was unintersted to help and after greeting her 3 times she finally stopped casually typing on her Smartphone to say hello. Positives: otherwise very pleasant and friendly staff in all areas of the hotel. Fantastic quisine! We had some of the best food experiences ever (quality, taste and presentation). Beautiful resort grounds, our compliments to the gardeners! We were well compensated for the inconveniences, well beyond our expectation. Thank you!

Fantastic setting

Alyazia Couples - 01/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Every single moment I spent since I stepped in the resort was absolutely fantastic! The receptionist, Aisha, helped us through the whole stay. When checking in, she was very helpful as we faced some issue with the deposit, and she also happly changed our villa to a more privacy one upon our request. Buggy drivers were super fast, amazing manners & so welcoming! I have never seen a hotel with this kind of people! I am very glad and happy with every single thing during my stay, and I even cried when we left it!

Jeff K. Couples - 30/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We spent 6 nights for our honeymoon and had a great stay. The facilities (beach, pool, fitness center, spa) were all very clean & never too crowded. Our villa was also very clean, comfortable, and had an incredible view. The dining and bar facilities were great. It was very easy & seamless to plan excursions & activities. Most importantly, every member of the staff that we interacted with was extraordinarily friendly, helpful, and provided great service. They took great care of us throughout our stay.

astonishing room, excellent facilities very nice services from all staff, buggy drivers, receptionist, excellent breakfast (variety & presentation) restaurants very nice band atmosphere very nice the pool "privacy" is not 100% ( a bit annoying), maybe the trees should be higher service in the restaurants should be faster I believe

Memorable times

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Suliman A. Couples - 28/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

- Check in was too slow because the lady she could not find our booking thru travel agent and requested me to send here the reservation voucher in email!? - The receptionist did not inform us about the themed dinners which we found out later on the dine-in menu. We believed that receptionist is first impression to the resort, however this shall be enhanced in future. - Food variety and night activities are just great, Lausean restaurant manager always motivates his staff to take care of all guests and they are always friendly with us. Shoeless Dinner night was awesome and unforgettable that me and my wife will never forget and thanks to the waiter Jason and the host Mariellene guess her name was. They were very informative about the resort and the dishes. - We suggest to provide ATM in the resort to allow guests get some cash congenitally in order to use when visit surrounding beaches and islands. - There is no greater than an inspirational leader and therefore thanks to Ms. Aisha she is well-mannered and made our honeymoon vacation. Also we are grateful to Mr Mohamed he helped us in guiding Praslin and managed the delivery of some meds very quickly.

The Villas at Raffles are unbelievable, the best I've ever stayed in. Private pool overseeing the island and the ocean, it does not get any better. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, and the food is fantastic. We absolutely loved our stay here!

Couple F. S. Couples - 23/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our experience at the Raffles Hotel was thoroughly great - the hotel with an amazing setting in the hills above the beach, the entire staff so very friendly and professional, everything well maintained and the food really good. We could immediately change rooms when it was a bit noisy from behind the main building and were especially well taken care of by - Samantha who helped us much with reservations, information and even asked for a special sushi meal for me due to my pregnancy, - John who Samantha advised extra during her day off to check on us - a young gentleman of a waiter with slender build, always smiling and glasses (unfortunately we can’t recall his name) who took great care of us during dinners - the beach front crew and happy gardeners and everyone else who works so hard and was pleasantly available for a chat or a helping hand. Thanks again for everything!

Good Stay

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ak Families - 22/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Excellent location, beautiful premises which are generally in good shape. Good performance returning to activity after a difficult covid situation. Few challenges are there with the training and the consistency of the service but the management is highly involved and listening to customers feedback which is great. Salwa (GM) and Ian (F&B) are excellent role models for the staff and very close to the guests. Salwa is approchable and very proactive with the guests. She is an excellent GM, extremely committed and motivated ! On the other hand, Ian is very solution oriented and has a very constructive mindset which is highly valuable for F&B management. With such high quality management, I am confident the product and the offering will get only better and better !

Dear Aimen, Thank you for your overall very positive review and your kind and encouraging words. We will be sure to share your feedback with Ian, Alvin, Mohamed and the rest of the team as they will be delighted to know you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated their services. We wish you a wonderful week ahead and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you and your family again in the future. Kind regards, The Raffles Team

Well over priced hotel with service that does not match prices.

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

KjfKjf 09/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

The only saving grace at this hotel is the rooms, they're beautiful. Everything else is well over priced with service that does not match up. Our first few days we felt like we'd landed on a strange planet, such slow service, rediculous prices, staff half asleep, no help. 170 euro for a 10 min boat ride. 60 euro for average steak with no vegetables. Food taking over an hour to arrive to table 75% of the time. Very, very small menu from 1 restaurant with very little choice and average food. No extra help from staff in trying to reduce activity prices. Flat out 'no' when we asked for help or lower prices. We would never stay at Raffles Seychelles again. It's the first time my family has felt depressed on a beach holiday.

We are quite surprised and dismayed by the content of your review regarding your holiday at our resort, please rest assured that your comments have been taken on board and revised by the entire Management team, however we would like to take this opportunity to clarify certain aspects of your review as a simple matter of exactness of the information reported. Although your comments do not seem to quite match with the usual feedback that we receive both on this support and onsite, for a future stay, please do not hesitate to voice your concerns and approach the management team to inform us of the service imperfection you report on your review, we will be more than pleased to assist for you to fully enjoy your holidays among us. Again, we genuinely appreciate the time you took out of your day to inform us of the inadequacies you experienced during your stay and we sincerely hope that you will allow us another opportunity to demonstrate our true level of hospitality and interest in serving you properly in the future.
