Beautiful hotel, very helpful staff, Great food

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Sidhartha S. Couples - 22/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed for 1 week in March 2020. Really excellent hotel - beautifully located. The staff - in particular Mohamed from Guest Services and Yash in the restaurant were really very helpful. I think the only things which could be improved - 1) The gym could be a bit more extensive - in particular it needs a squat rack / deadlift platform, a stairmaster and a pull-up bar / frame. 2) The heating in the steam room and sauna needs to be higher. 3) The description of which meals are included for those on a meal plan needs to be clearer to understand at check-in.

Dear Sidhartha S., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Raffles Seychelles. It is always a pleasure to receive feedback. I will share your comments with our team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope your next visit will be as pleasant as the previous one. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

Nice place, nice view

Customer review rating 4.7/5

D P. Couples - 22/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The first impression was very bad. We recived the worst possible vila, 195, lost in a corner and dirty, for Ocean pool vila, when more than half of the resort was empty. For a few of them the staff asked us a difference more than 1000 euro(for 11 nights). Finally we took vila 214, wich in our opinion is a Partial sea view vila, because of the roof and the building in the front. The welcoming staff from that day was veeeeery unpolitely !

Dear Dan Gabriel P., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Raffles Seychelles. We are sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow us to express our sincerest apologies. At Raffles, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. We appreciate you sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

Perfect Honeymoon Stay

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Alexia G. Couples - 19/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We loved the care and importance the staff gave us during our stay. We felt like we were the only people staying at the resort and enjoyed every second of it. The room is beyond words and the food was phenomenal as well! We did wish however there was a nice honeymoon welcome surprise like we've seen in other resorts on the beds with flowers - but overall loved everything!

Dear Alexia Carla, Thank you for your perfect review and your kind and encouraging words, and thank you for bringing to our attention the missed honeymoon touch on arrival, and not having communicated our themed evenings well enough. We will be sure to implement changes to ensure other guests are not inconvenienced in the future. We are very happy that you otherwise enjoyed the resort, and will be sure to share your feedback with the team as they will be delighted to know you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated their services. Congratulations once again on your recent nuptials, we wish you both a lifetime of happiness together, and hope to welcome you back in the future, perhaps for a special anniversary. Kind regards, The Raffles Team

Not a 5 star experience, beautiful location

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Megan Solo - 14/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Unfortunately this was not the best 5 star hotel I’ve stayed in. I travel extensively for work as I am a management consultant, and I’ve stayed in hotels that have been far better in terms of service, quality of food and wine, and facilities that were not 5 star. The food was 3 stars at best, and there were severely limited gluten free options. The chef was only willing to accommodate a few items to make them gluten free. Secondly, my room reeked of cigarette smoke and when I asked to be placed in another villa they showed me a villa that was a downgrade from the one I was currently in, with an awful view. This service is completely unacceptable for a 5 star resort where I was paying 900$ a night. Thirdly, the spa service I received was awful. I got a gel manicure that is supposed to last 2 weeks and it chipped the same day. The floor boards on my villa deck were coming up, the paint on the railings was chipping off and I was served glassware with a chip in it at breakfast. There weren’t very many healthy food options and the wine by the glass was horrible. Overall this could be a beautiful resort but management really needs to work on a lot of things

Dear Ms. B., Thank you for taking the time to share details of your stay with us; it is through thorough feedback and concrete facts that we are able to improve. Please rest assured that your experience in no way reflects the service we aim to provide, and we will tackle all the comments to make sure the same does not reoccur in the future inconveniencing other guests. Kindly note that a refurbishment plan is already in progress, and in many villas, the works for the terrace, the railing the pool tiling and more, have already been completed. Unfortunately the villa you were assigned had not yet been completed. There is as well a plan for a complete refurbishment of the reception, and we are hoping to have this completed in the coming few months. I am sorry that you did not appreciate our culinary offering, this is generally an area that we are always praised on by our guests. As for the selection, we will look into this with the chef and will ensure more healthy and more gluten free options are available. Once again, please accept our sincere apologies for the inconveniences encountered during you recent visit and we hope you will give us another chance to better serve you in the future. Kind regards, Salwa Razzouk Resort Manager

The stay was very good and special. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. Employees were very nice and attentionated at all time! We felt that we were special!. Very good Indian Buffet, nice people and service, Tasty food as well. We did noticed that the Butcher's night was desorganized in term of services. The meat itself served in your plate was good but some of the prepared meals with meat was not. We had to ask for the sauces 3 to 4 times. This is why We did rated a 8.... which is good already.

Adah Families - 29/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

My daughters and I have an annual ‘three musketeers reunion’, this year we chose Seychelles at the Raffle hotel. Our roof top villa was absolutely stunning from the view, our private plunge pool which we used daily and my bath with my magnificent view. All the staff were so personable and made it a point to be so accommodating wherever we went. Breakfast was a delight each morning and the selection changed daily which was so refreshing for a buffet. We loved all the daily activities the hotel offered. The massage room with the natural ocean breeze and waves was wonderful and I was so happy I took the time to experience this. My daughters loved going to feed the tortoises fresh bananas each day. A paradise that we didn’t want to end...thankful and blessed that we got to go...now we have memories and photographs for a lifetime!

Dear Adah, Thank you for your perfect review and your kind and encouraging words. We will be sure to share your feedback with Michelle, Cecile, Bell and the rest of the team as they will be delighted to know you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated their services.

all in all it was a great stay. we celebrated 10 years wedding unniversary and allso my husbend's 40 years birthday. we got upgrade to full view of the ocean insted uf partial view and you allso put great cake for us and thank you for that. it could be more great if you could decorate the vila a liitle bit for our special event.. the viila and the food were great. few little things that were realy annoying: 1) the payment for water in the evening- why do you charge for this? it is givven for us for free duriing the day and it is not even mineral water..it felt petty 2) there are slippers/sandels in the room for our use doring the stay- it is not one time slippers otherwise yow would put it in nylon and five this for free to the guests. it is a liittle bit repulsive and not to mention unhealty to use the same slippers that other guest used before us. 3)on chek out when we got the detailed bill - there was peymant regarding the rehabilition of the corals and if we did not asked about this the employee that gave us the biil he would charge us allso for this without our knowledge!- your employees should explain beforehand about the biil and mainly about thinfs you add in the bill like this that is like a d donation and do'nd require. 4) you have nice things to buy in the store but things, like the sea bag that was allso in the villa, were really expencive and excessive price.
