L'Habitation is an extremely neat, well-run hotel, newly built on a former coconut plantation, next to the beach on Cerf Island. It is surrounded by a wonderful green garden, and a number or relaxing areas along the shoreline. The lagoon taxi offers a shuttle service to the main island of Mahé, a journey that only takes a few minutes.
3 × Standard Room (up to 3 people)
2 × Junior Suite (up to 3 people)
Activities and specials:
- The small canoe rental belonging to the hotel allows you to explore the Marine Park and its small islands.
- Boat trips to the heavenly Moyenne Island, including a Creole island buffet, can be booked in the vicinity of the hotel.
- Snorkelling fanatics can begin at the hotel beach, where snorkelling equipment can be hired.
- Free guided snorkeling can be organized Monday to Friday at 10h30.
- The owners of the hotel organise boat trips to La Digue and Praslin as desired, and also offer deep-sea fishing trips.
- Boat service to the main island of Mahé - The arrival and departure boat transfers are complimentary
L'Habitation hotel is situated next to the beach on Cerf Island, a small island located in the middle of the protected St. Anne National Park. Nowhere else in the Seychelles will you find such a concentrated number of small islands surrounded by a coral reef, or such a rich underwater fish population. As you can imagine, Cerf Island is therefore very popular for snorkelling.
The other big draw of Cerf is its serene atmosphere, despite being just five minutes away from Mahé by boat. Cerf Island measures just 1 km (0.6 miles) in length, and is completely free from cars. The beautiful beach which borders the island acts as a 'road' of sorts, allowing you to walk (barefoot) to some of Cerf Island's best spots, including the island's two restaurants. One of these hotels is at l'Habitation, and the other is at the Cerf Island Resort. There's also a small scuba diving and snorkelling school on the island.
Due to its proximity to the main island of Mahé, this hotel is particularly popular with travellers visiting the Seychelles. Cerf Island is just 5 minutes away from the main island, and the boat transfers between the islands several times a day, allowing you to stay on Cerf and visit Mahé, complete with its colourful market in the capital. Mahé also offers a number of beaches for you to enjoy. Many of our customers love the mixture of peace and serenity on Cerf, and the accessibility of the lively main island. "Those who want to visit Mahé should stay on Cerf Island", they say.
That's not to say Cerf Island has nothing to offer. Far from it, the island has a perfect location in the middle of a tropical lagoon. L'Habitation hotel is a former coconut plantation, and has a small, but excellent, beach-side restaurant, known for its great international cuisine and its traditional Creole buffet (served at least once a week for dinner). The price for Christmas and New Year's Eve included the gala dinner. The high-class finish of the hotel is very modern, and the enormous value for money is rare for the Seychelles. This is the main reason for our special recommendation of L'Habitation.
The hotel's boat runs several times a day between Mahé (Eden Island Jetty) and Cerf Island:

We liked the remote location. The most varied breakfast on our trip. Large rooms with a great balcony and a beautiful view. The service was good. Canoe rental free of charge. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We do not recommend Cerf Island or L'Habitation. The island is small, not so clean (we collected trash all along the beach) and the water is not so clear. As for the hotel, the public areas and the rooms are clean but in dire need of renovation. Breakfast and meals are simple. The reception is not up to par. No smiles, no advice, no attention for their guests. We did not feel welcome. They are at home and it makes itself felt. They set up a table every evening for dinner next to the guests and are served by their employees. There is a "colon" spirit that we did not appreciate. The price-performance ratio is not up to par. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Breakfast in the hotel, exactly the same for 13 days. We often had to ask for hot water for tea. At dinner it happened that the hotel management and their friends were served first. The hotel guests had to wait, with 2 waiters, quite a long time. The water in the pool was so cloudy and dirty after 4 days that you didn't want to go inside. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Pool Sunbeds etc. Could be a bit more well-kept. But the excellent dinner tears everything out again. Otherwise everything top inclusive transfer. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Despite some negative reviews, we were pleasantly surprised. The accommodation is partly aged in "dignity". Some shortcomings such as jamming doors, etc., you must probably accept. The staff was attentive and helpful. The food was tasty and there were 2 3-course menus to choose from. The crowd was rather sufficient. Once a week (Wed) there is a buffet. That was very good incl. Very good dessert. During our stay the hotel was very well visited and all guests had probably booked half board. Breakfast was good average for the Seychelles. For 20 € p. P. you can go with the "houseboat" to Moyenne. The trip should definitely make. The in-house kayaks were in a rather bad condition. As is often the case in the Seychelles, the beach is narrow or absent at high tide. This is even better with the L'Habitation than with other accommodations on Cerf, which you can not leave at high tide. You can swim well in front of the hotel. There are also fish, but snorkeling is not great, since the view is modest. Not far from the hotel, the day trippers in Marine Parc take their BQ on the beach. Does not bother. Cerf is ok for a few days. Because of the constant view and the proximity to Mahe, a real island feeling does not really set in. Who likes it, but an alternative to the hectic Mahe. The houseboat takes you to Eden Island in 5 minutes. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All right, dinner (menu) you must not be hungry! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
He would need a restyling and a restaurant management manager. The staff n9n has a correct training. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Great location, very friendly and helpful staff or family who runs the facility. We felt very well and would come back anytime. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Small and beautiful! is the one where we have lived better. The island is very small and there are not the attractions of the larger islands if not the possibility of visiting the next island, a natural park that hosts about forty large turtles or a guided excursion on the island of Mahè. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
We had the Villa Hibiscus and this was very spacious, clean and very pretty. There is nothing to complain about. The restaurant is small but fine. Dinner always set menu and very good breakfast in buffet form also good. Service was helpful and friendly. The (small) hotel area is equipped with a small but very comfortable pool. There was not much staff - we believe that the waiter at the same time the Roomboy and Haustechniker was-which was perfectly ok for us. The island itself is anyway pure Robinson Crusoe feeling: no vehicles, very few accommodations and therefore not many people. A barefoot island! For peace seekers optimally. Tip: make an island tour with the free kayak ..... and join the Moyenne excursion (it costs a bit more) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
What should be emphasized is the friendliness of the staff. Here we felt well looked after. The room in the main building with extra bed was not the force. Very small, the parents bed worn out, unfortunately also cockroaches and ants in the room. And the drain in sink and bath tub needed a lot of patience. Maybe the single cabins are better, but unfortunately they were all occupied when we booked. The food (choice from two menus) was unfortunately not so special. And I can not confirm the highly praised value for money of this hotel, as we could eat and drink better and cheaper in the other hotels on our trip. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Little gem on a wonderful island. The size of the island allows the priceless opportunity to turn it and cross it entirely on foot. Excellent structure with large rooms, well organized and excellent cleaning.The restaurant offers a high quality cuisine. The staff is ready to respond to your every need with professionalism and courtesy. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Here is our opinion (unfortunately) a bit zwiegespalten, because some do not match. The food (we had booked half board) is fantastic and would have deserved 5 stars. We (3 adults) had a junior suite in their own little mini-villa next to the main house. There was in a large room a large double bed and a single "extra bed". This extra bed turned out to be a normal-narrow beach chair (made of wicker), on which one had laid a rather thin mattress. We were only there for 2 nights - for this short time our son could arrange this rather uncomfortable sleeping accommodation - but we would not want to do a longer holiday under these conditions. It is a pity that in the large bathroom en suite "only" a large corner bath is. That looks nice, but is not well suited for showering. The beach chairs on the site are partly very old and should be repaired / exchanged. Despite the usual heavy rains, the lounger cushions remain on the loungers all day, so that it then comes here to unsightly / unhealthy mold. The pool is very nice with great views of the sea. The staff in the restaurant are very attentive and friendly - at the reception the interest in the guest is not really strong. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A humorous crossing with great views from the yachting marina and Mahe to the hotel was very nice. The staff always and always friendly and accommodating. Nice smaller sandy beach. The hotel area nicely laid out, among other things, with couches and canopies. Dining room overlooking the beach with palm trees and views of Mahe etc. (unfortunately also to the settled industry). But at night but also a gorgeous sight as Mahe is built into the survey there. In the hotel we could get a kayak for free and circle the island - very nice trip. Breakfast buffet in order. Unfortunately the hotel and the rooms are a bit older, but everything was fine and clean. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good food, professional and friendly staff, nice room with a balcony. Clean, tidy and quiet area. Great ending for our trip! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A lot of hiccups, but managed with speed and a smile. We took a lot of fun! Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The best hotel on Cerf Island. Nice clean rooms with sea views and large bathtub. For us the best breakfast buffet of all hotels. Owner offers private boat trips to Marine Park with visit to Moyenne Island. We recommend. We would like to have stayed a few days longer. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Yes, the Small Hotel L`Habitiation, which is located on Cerf Island, an offshore island of Mahe, was quite nice. Small but nice and very expensive. The rooms were okay. Rest and relaxation was given. However, the dream beach was not a dream beach. This was equipped with seagrass / Plato and the sea was not very clear, and dead fish were in the water. Everything was very unappetizing and not suitable for swimming. Thank god there was a pool to cool off. The breakfast was good and rich. The first evening we were lucky, as there was a buffet, which was also rich and good. On the second evening we unfortunately had no luck, as there was a menu with soup, main course and dessert. The quality and the crowd was a "joke" The soup was empty after three tablespoons, the main report included dry rice, a bit of beef with beans. The dessert consisted of a scoop of ice cream and a piece of pineapple. The drinks were outrageously high. A beer 0.3 cost about 5 euros. We were glad that we had booked only two nights, especially since the hotel was too expensive. We thought that Cerf Island is a small island that can be explored on foot, but this was not the case. There are other accommodations on the island. My conclusion: overpriced hotel .... and the island is not a highlight. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location! Perfect service! Enjoy your meal! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We moved again the first day, because the first room was not cleaned properly and smelled very unpleasant. The junior boss then provided us with a junior suite, which was nice. The hotel is getting old, the furniture is outdated. The hotel restaurant is great !!!! The aircraft noise of Mahe is not to be missed, but still to accept. The shuttle service via taxi boat works great! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
ideal for short stays Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
On-time transfers with the hotel's boat shuttle - pure relaxation in a heavenly place. Clean hotel, good food and very friendly staff. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great location and nice hotel. Quiet and gorgeous, wonderful beaches and coral, the underwater world was awesome. Breakfast was OK, dinner better, especially at the buffet. They cooked for us as a vegetarian extra, which I found very nice. The staff has no stress, a few times they told me they give me information (eg for diving) but it did not happen. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Cleanliness: the rooms were cleaned well. The bathroom had an ant street, which we did not find very bad. This may happen in tropical countries ... Location: central at the Inselsteg. You have to be aware that there are no other catering options on the island and should therefore be eaten at the hotel. Nothing else is happening on the island. To get down, a good holiday start. Would save me but on the next Seychelles vacation and spend a few days longer on La Digue. Service: ok. We were only a bit annoyed that we had to decide at noon / afternoon already, what we would like to eat in the evening in the hotel restaurant. I would like to have made this decision only in the evening. Punctuality Staff: Basically ok. The skipper was just over punctual. He left us on the departure day relatively impolite "pulled away" from the breakfast table, as he thought it was high time to take off. According to our transfer plan, we would have had 20 minutes left. The fact that we had to wait 30 minutes for the subsequent transfer bus confirmed that our transfer schedule probably included the correct times. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Disappointing, but we accept our choice. The hotel is not up to par, although we would have the best room ... first day without hot water, a bottle of white wine offered in compensation. Then flood the bathroom and part of the room after a leak from the bath and not at all an overflow. Unfriendly atmosphere and disappointing meals, as well as breakfasts. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation was clean and everything was there, what you need. We received a free upgrade from Standard to Junior Suite. Ideal location right on the beach. Garden with loungers, seating and shower. The service was friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was served as a buffet and eggs were served. Half board was served, was good and the portions were sufficient. In the afternoon, however, you had to choose already. A la carte food is larger portions. Since you should weigh whether you would like to eat a starter. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
nice family-run hotel, fantastically located embedded in a very well-kept garden Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our room was very Grenzwertig, needs to be renovated. Only the view from the balcony was very nice. The food was not so good, the food we did not feel comfortable since the waiters were very unmotivated or lustless. The table where the owner sat with his staff got the food in front of the guests. Or. Much faster. Would not go there again. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The staff at the front desk were very helpful and always ready to assist. The rental of canoes or snorkeling equipment was free. That's it! The hotel is just a 1 * hotel with the charm of an 80s hotel in Africa. On arrival it had no towels and no toilet paper. The front door of the room was so distorted that it was only with violence the door zubekommen. The sink and the BD were missing the plugs, the bathroom was dirty, the whole room left a quite dirty and unclean condition. The Air Contition popped on the face and insects sometimes fall on the pillow. The food is rather below average and you can expect 1.5 hours on it. THIS HOTEL NEVER AGAIN, SAU BAD. It borders on impudence that they offer something for so much money. I do not want to start with constant aircraft noise. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything perfect! Spacious junior suite with sea view and only 5 steps to the pool ... Wonderful service at breakfast and dinner, almost too servile. There is only noise when a quad is started (one also wonders: does this have to be? Is not there such a thing electrically?). Highly recommended is an island hike: crossing and then around the southern tip ... you need just 2.5-3h for it. In principle, the freely available kayaks are a good idea and also really fun, but unfortunately the kayaks are just as good in shot as Nedy's bikes on La Digue (1 of 3 kayaks is tight). In the evening you can see lemon sharks, rays and herons from the jetty just a few meters away! Overall, it's a really nice piece of paradise - for a few relaxing days on the island! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful facility that one expects to find in Seychelles Very good food but very little especially for breakfast Here too very small room for four people and the extra bed a cot on which it was impossible to sleep Here there was an unfortunate event that the cleaning lady and, in the bathroom, I forgot a bottle of water full of varechina and at night in the morning my seven-year-old son drank. Fortunately without consequences. however, apart from this misunderstanding and 'a structure in which I would return. A round of applause for the staff Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The last regular boat leaves Cerf Island at 17:30. A later boat can not be taken by appointment on the spot. Is not optimal for late return flight times Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Beautiful island and lovely staff and hotel
Everything was very good except for the beach. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very good hotel with nice people. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Perfect on the beach on the quiet island of Cerf. Great food, super friendly staff. Kayaks used for trips to Moyen and Ile Cachee. A lot of snorkelling, rays (guitars stingrays, eagle rays and hedgehog stingrays), turtles etc. Island hike was also an experience. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We did not like this accommodation. The rooms were borderline and cleanliness was also very much lacking. We had a lot of ants in bed on the first day, which does not work, not even for the tropics. The food was not outstanding and the complex was very run down. One has the impression that nothing is invested and renovated here. You can certainly overlook many things, if the cleanliness are right. Unfortunately, both were not correct here. Only the large balcony was nice. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our rooms were in the bungalow in the annex. These were unfortunately pretty worn and the bathrooms would be in need of renovation for years. We did not get the room, which we booked! Unmotivated staff, breakfast buffet was poor and was filled up only hesitantly. Dinner was ok. All in all disappointing ..... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice hotel and very friendly staff. Unfortunately, this was the only island where we had some bad luck with the weather. There is only one path across the island, otherwise no roads or roads. The beach is in large parts only accessible at low tide. You have to take that into account. There are few food options on the island and no shop. But you have to with the regular boat to Mahe. Snorkeling is in front of the hotel well possible (see above) and you should use the free offered guide. The late check-out was no problem, only that the last boat to Mahe at 17:00 o'clock was a bit too early for our needs (departure after 23:00 o'clock). Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very quiet location but right on the beach. Great island for those looking for rest and tranquility. Very friendly and attentive staff. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very family accommodation. All guests are known. Every employee knows which room you live in. The hotel itself only one day later expected us, but still everything worked and we received our booked room. We liked it very much. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel L'Habitation is very nice, I would definitely take a junior suite. The room was clean, but we had a problem with the fan. The fuse had to be replaced (on the 2nd day, as it was a holiday), then the remote control was no longer at the front desk and so the fan ran at the highest level all day and at night. So we had to switch the main power switch but also said that we had no electricity in the room. The pool was good, but it did not seem to be too clean. For the snack at noon we had to wait 45 minutes, although we were the only ones. Otherwise the food was very good and the breakfast also delicious, the broken half of the toaster should be repaired. We took the free kayak once around the island with a stopover on Long Island. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The facility is still very nice; It was our second visit there. However, she could take a little refresher at one point or another. The staff was always friendly, if a little "reserved" than our visit 2.5 years ago. We had (coincidentally?) Got the same room again :-) The food was still good; especially the comparatively lush breakfast buffet. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice location, nice garden, very friendly staff. The best meal of the trip and the most extensive breakfast. The room, however, quite worn and old, here and there a few repairs would be necessary. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything in order, except for the attention of some staff in the restaurant. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
the bungalow was great..the food was very expensive ... soup 10 € ..3 course menu 27 € .. the food only average ... the location was great..nur all big airmen from mahe flying past the hotel .. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Cleanliness: very good. Location: Good, but with an eye on industry and Winkraftanlagen the neighboring island Mahe and swath airport. Room: The paint is off. Repair work is urgently needed. (dissolving toilet lid, missing cover fan in the bathroom, bedside cabinets hang on half past eight, beds are worn out, curtain rod falls when pulling the curtain) the chalet's are in good condition. View from the hotel room is very good. Service: Good. Friendliness: expandable. Breakfast: unfortunately already at 9 o'clock empty buffet although breakfast time until 10:30 is. Other: Illumination of the jetty is broken and therefore no aquarium view in the dark possible. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We liked it very much! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
We had a villa very spacious, quiet and nicely located. Great kitchen! Very many possibilities for excursions (James, Benedict, kayak and fins for free in the hotel) The hiking trail over the island is unfortunately very neglected and can only be estimated over routes. Something has to be done. The more beautiful are the beaches! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The accommodation is great for those seeking tranquility. Courteous staff, clean rooms, well maintained grounds, beautiful beaches, good food! In short: a perfect vacation spot! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice location by the sea! Friendly staff and room very clean. Very calm and relaxing! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Who travels to the Cerf island in L`Habitation, should have no great expectations. It is a rather shabby, family house that would need an urgent renovation. Even the breakfast is rather simple .... Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Just nice and relaxing, everything was clean and everyone was very friendly Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Completely satisfied. The tour offered by the hotel on Mahe, with private guide Benedict, was really a highlight! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
a big plus was of course the proximity to the main island of Mahe and the free water taxi, but also the hotel was very good, great food, free canoes which we gladly used to orbit around the island or to a secluded bay with super beach spend the day sunbathing, snorkeling and swimming Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice and also the restaurant atmospheric. It is clear that everything works a little differently due to the exposed location of this island world. All rooms nicely located and very nice atmosphere. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
A bit of a let down with a very bad experience with one of the staff. I suggested that the owner should get rid of him if he wanted his business to grow.
After ten years we were allowed to vacation for the second time in the hotel L`Habitation. It is still a very cozy and family-run small hotel. The rooms are functionally furnished and have a huge balcony overlooking the garden all the way to Mahe. The cleaning service is very good and the room is always tidy, albeit a bit old. Very noteworthy is the possibility to rent kayaks for free and to explore the entire St. Anne Marine Park. The continental breakfast is very good. In the evening we always expected a 3-course menu with excellent food. The transfer from Mahe to Cerf Iceland was however not well organized on the way there, we had to wait in Mahe with luggage over an hour on the shuttle. Unfortunately, this was not a good start to the holiday - here should be a better arrangement with the hotel. Otherwise the transfer to Mahe was always very good and there was also the possibility to drive from James to other small islands. The service in the restaurant was good, the service at the front desk was very good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Transfer, organization, cleanliness ... everything went well. Especially the restaurant staff is very friendly. We recommend to bring some snacks and drinks from Eden Island, since everything is very expensive in the hotel. The food was okay, but no comparison to the delicious dinner at the guesthouse. The free canoe rental is great for walking around the island. The water is full of fish;) The outdoor seating is very chilled and you are mostly alone. We have been able to relax very well the last two days. An oasis of calm. What we noticed a bit negatively, that the bottles and glasses at the pool were not more frequently put away. Even at the beach some bottles are ugly at low tide. The coconuts should urgently be removed from the palms. We were almost hit by a whole branch with nuts at the pool. The floor slabs around the pool and on the porch are very slippery with wet feet. I had to take care of my son. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
I can only rate the hotel with average. All the staff of the management took their breakfast at the next table from us. There was no good morning greeting. The guests were air. The breakfast was very meager. Only the most necessary. Not a good cook. The grouper tasted like fish fillet of Frosta from the freezer. In the L'Habitat the grouper was a revelation! The hotel management did not respond to reported fancy lighting, referred us to Creol when we asked for the organization of a glass boat trip. Creol in Victoria directed us back to the hotel with the same request. So no tour took place. It would have been easy for Creol to ask an organizer of these trips if they would take us. One of the two ladies had to file their nails and the other one was overwhelmed. They wanted to pick us up at 4:00 in Eden Island and drive to the airport. We had to clarify first, that at this time no boat from the hotel to Eden Island drives and we had no intention to spend hours in the heat (departure 8:35 clock) in the airport. For the pickup time the lady was not responsible, phoned around forever and then told us, they will clarify. The lady in charge is not available at the moment. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel was very good, although price-performance unfortunately not quite right (according to our personal feeling!). We paid 212 euros for one night including breakfast. We knew the price was not for the 3 star hotel, but for the exclusivity! however, Cerf is not quite as exclusive as it seems. It is a private island and there are only 2 hotels. However, the island has many private properties, so that many parts of the island are not to be entered. In addition, almost all land owners were on site, so the island was not as "lonely" as we wanted. Unfortunately we had the bad luck, that in the morning the power failed. Therefore, there was a rest of cold coffee, as well as leftovers of cold pancakes. Unfortunately it was a pity that not many alternatives were offered! There was electricity again for lunch so we could have a snack to make up for the hunger after breakfast. We might have expected that there will be some snacks at the expense of the house due to the power outage, especially since you rely on the island on the restaurant. Apart from this little incident Cerf really liked us. It was a special experience. An island without roads and vehicles is something very special :-) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
great for snorkeling. Transfer was ok, but we were informed bad / wrong about the times (last contact was Phiona) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Price (for a bungalow with sea view is a joke, since the rooms in the main building have larger terraces and unrestricted sea view in contrast to the bungalow is set back and the sea view is not really In addition, we had mostly cold showers and the hair dryer and TV were not at all in case of storm whipped the palm leaves so on the tin roof of the bungalow sleep was not to think .The sheets were then cut the next day ok for dinner there were 2 menus (half board booked), here were as well as on the menu unfortunately various food from the can even though it was declared as Fresh .Trips are offered to the National Park the then not to flow due to flow though all the other Boats, staff so friendly but very reserved those in the kitchen not taken seriously or not passed on by the service staff. Would not recommend this hotel. Too bad a nice place Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Earlier Condor flight, Creole transport to Eden worked well, then no one picked us up, other guests were picked up from their hotels at the jetty, had to call even at the hotel, around 9:15 we went, a booked excursion has forgotten reception book, very annoying, room OK, dinner OK, once buffet that was great, beach bad for swimming a lot of seagrass, snorkel reef many ruthless boats Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
