Description:

Small hotels in the Seychelles often combine the best aspects of larger resorts and self-catering guesthouses. The Villa Dorado is a prime example of this, offering a nice breakfast to start the day, served on the terrace. Breakfast is prepared by Martha, who takes pride in her level of care for her guests. Anyone wanting to know more about the Seychelles, and especially about Mahé, should speak to her. She's always more than happy to suggest tours, and is happy to help organise them too.

Martha spends most of the day in the hotel's reception, which can be found in the small lobby. From the lobby, an imposing stone staircase leads to the upper floor of the villa. Here, guests can find three of the bedrooms of the small hotel, with the other two located on the ground floor. The ground floor rooms, as well as two of the first floor rooms, offer a fantastic ocean view. The third room that can be found on the upper floor offers a view of the dense rainforest vegetation.

Other than their outlook and the balcony, the rooms are identically-furnished, except for a few minor decorative details. They are extremely spacious, especially when it comes to the high ceilings, which create a real sense of space and a bright atmosphere. The excellent room service is typical of many small hotels, with regular linen and towel changes, and the hotel's interior is generally a remarkably clean environment for you to enjoy your holiday in.

The Villa Dorado offers a unique location by the sea, as well as good value-for-money, one of the main reasons for our recommendation. Except for preparing light snacks, the kitchen is only to be used by the manager, Martha. However, all guests who stay at the Dorado Villa can enjoy dinner at the Crown Beach Hotel, where they will benefit from a 10% reduction on drink prices as well as the use of the hotel's other facilities, including swimming pool and sunbeds.

Activities and specials:

  • Enjoy the often-deserted beach of Pointe au Sel.
  • Guests can use the Crown Beach hotel facilities including swimming pool, restaurant and kayaks.
  • Just off the beach is one of Mahé's best snorkelling spots, which can be explored right from the sand.
  • A bus stop can be found just a few minutes' walk from the house, allowing you to explore the rest of Mahé even without renting a car.
  • The capital, Victoria, is 20 minutes away by bus, and houses a colourful market, museums, and of course, restaurants and shops.
  • Guests should only use the kitchen for cooking small snacks, such as salads or heating up a pizza, or for preparing tea and coffee. The smell of larger meals could annoy other guests.

Breakfast was great, always served with a smile. My room was lovely, large and clean. The beach is great for swimming during high tide.

★★★★☆ 06.12.2018

Actually good location, just because of the road a bit noisy. Pleasant atmosphere, very nice housekeeper "Martha". Great breakfast.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate

21.11.2018

The house was very nice, breakfast very good. There was some street noise, but we had the bus stop in front of the door. It was nice that we could use the beach chairs and the pool of the neighboring hotel. Too bad that there are no sidewalks to walk. The streets are dangerous! Would we book again.Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
