Nice stay at Raffles

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Iva Families - 04/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Beautiful hotel well located, nice villas we had an ocean view room witch was really beautiful and very clean with a wonderful view towards across island and the sea. Buggy is very convenient way of a transportation in a huge resort. Beach is not so long but very clean close to the public beach comfortable for a long walk. Area with a huge pool is really breathable. We also had a trip through the whole island which I find interesting and also went to the national part with the famous palm tree coco de mer, went also to the one of the most beautiful beaches on the world Anse Lazio. Then we visited La Digue island which I found breathable beautiful. We spent beautiful week in a Raffles and Seychells. The only one thing that I don't like in a hotel was one restaurant close to the reception area it was not so good like the others close to the pool area. That was maybe because of renovation. Hotel with a most beautiful view!

Dear Mrs. B., Thank you for your positive review and for your kind and encouraging words.

Henry S. Couples - 26/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

There are signs of wear at your beautiful hotel. All the roads for the buggies need to be power washed. The mortar holding your rock walls have in many places turned an ugly dark color. The wooden decks throughout the property are showing wear. The wood should be replaced by a synthetic material like Hardi-plank

We 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.

Anonymous Families - 25/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

superb experience , lovely and warm hearted staff who were all so nice and welcoming. The view was wow like a post card of paradisal heaven . The pool villa was homey , relaxing and we enjoyed not only the pool itself but also the privacy and everything else. We loved the personal interactions during the cocktail night on the terrace but also the buffet creole that night and the breakfast the next day. We actually posted mostly everything on Facebook and many of my friends and followers had shown great interest to come to Raffles in the near future , namely teachers, ministry of education staff members with their family Not forgetting my mum who is a retired teacher , has worked at the ministry of education , trained future teachers and lately has been the chairperson for the elderly [ the senior citizen of Seychelles ] for 18 years She has a very active group who frequently travels to many of our lovely islands and has also to other countries as relaxation learning experience while enjoying themselves. So be sure to expect them and us soon Blessings to all , thank you so much for you kindness and lovely welcoming smile . keep up the great job , Samia , Nathasia all the other waitress and the welcoming committee, Dave and all the other buggy drivers

Dear Anne, Thank you for your raving review and your kind and encouraging words. It was a pleasure to meet you at the cocktail, and i am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our creole dinner. I was sad not to have seen you on departure but happy to be reading your feedback now. I wish you a wonderful weekend ahead and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back in the future. Another poetry competition prize maybe?? Kindest regards, Salwa Salwa Razzouk Resort Manager

Sadly the worst service I've ever experienced

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Jillian H. Couples - 21/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I had such high hopes for my honeymoon at Raffles. The resort itself is beautiful, but the service was the worst I've ever experienced. From waiting an hour for our lunch to be delivered to then be told the order was never placed, to walking out of a sushi dinner because no one attended to us for about an hour (even though the restaurant only had 2 other guests), to being told our room will be set-up with a romantic bubble bath and champagne at 6pm and to walk in to nothing (which resulted in me breaking down in tears with how upset I was), and many more examples (but you get the point) I was very sad to have this be my honeymoon experience. I had such high hopes and left crushed and disappointed that I spent $8,000 to be ignored and not catered to.

Dear Jillian, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience, and sharing the details with us. As mentioned in my previous correspondence, your experience does not reflect the services usually provide and unfortunately you encountered many mishaps for which we truly apologize. I am sad to read that the memory of your stay with us is still this tarnished and would like to reiterate our commitment to high quality standards. I hope we will have the opportunity to turn around your opinion through another stay in the future, and congratulate you once again for your recent nuptials. Kind regards, Salwa Razzouk Resort Manager

Winter stay

Customer review rating 4.7/5

Val Families - 20/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed for the second time at Raffles Praslin and we were once again very happy with the hotel: food, services, rooms, kindness, spa,... everything is 5*. The one bedroom villa is gigantic. The view is amazing. Nevertheless, we missed a nice place where to sit and enjoy a cocktail before or after diner at the pool or beach. We would have appreciated a lounge with soft music and sofas, a place to play cards with the kids before dining. We also had a New year Eve diner at the Raffles. The food and atmosfeer were excellent but then the music in the restaurant went louder and louder and louder. We could not hear each other anymore and we skipped the dessert because of this. Most people left the place as well. A pity for such a event. To compensate the firework was fantastic!

Dear Mrs. V., Thank you for your overall positive review and your kind and encouraging words. We will be sure to share your feedback with the team as they will be delighted to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay with us and appreciated their services. Thank you for bring the matter regarding the music on NY's dinner, we will look into it and will ensure the same does not happen again in the future. Thank you for also mentioning the need to an additional space enabling some family time before dinner. we will look into this matter and will try to do introduce something more comfortable around takamaka terrace / pavillion. In the hopes of welcoming you all for a 3rd visit, we wish you a wonderful weekend ahead and all the best for this coming year. Kind regards, The Raffles Team
