Jane S. Couples - 26/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Great staff in beautiful setting. Particular mention should go to Shiv, Mohamed in the Losean, Margaret and Samantha at the Pool Bar and Brian in the Curieuse. We found it strange that at a hotel of this level you charged for water at the table but it was free, as it should be, at pool side and in the rooms.

Poor attention

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anonymous Couples - 15/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We stayed at Raffles from 3rd Nov thru to 6th Nov. 3rd Nov being my birthday. My wife got stung by plankton and or small yellyfish but the people by the beach club did not advise us this was out there. The hotel should have immediately called in a doctor in stead of the nurse who was not competent and proposed wrong treatment. We lacked treatment and as a result my wife suffered until the 10th of Nov when we were back on Mahe to go see a doctor who administered the right injection to stop the severe irritation and rash.

Excellent stay

Bryan Families - 11/11/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The hotel’s location is unbeatably beautiful and exclusive. We liked our experience from the beginning till the end. Check in was fast and friendly. The villa we stayed was very exclusive and the view was gorgeous. Breakfast is one of the plus points for the hotel compared to other top-notch five stars equivalent. Buggy service was quick and smooth, and transportation arrangement was very efficient too. The in-villa pool on our first morning was started too early and the engine woke us up, after we told the staff they made sure it was switched off until our desired time to switch back on. Overall it was a fantastic experience with raffles and the hotel really lived up to the name. Highly recommended especially compared to some of the other five stars we stayed in Seychelles.

Dear Bryan, Thank you for your excellent 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 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 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.
