The Castello Beach Hotel is a year-round tropical hideaway. This 4-star hotel is located on the sandy beach of Anse Kerlan on the Seychelles' second-largest island, Praslin.
12 × Family Suite (up to 4 people)
1 × Maxi Family Suite (up to 6 people)
Activities and specials:
- Enjoy the Seychelles' most beautiful sunsets on your doorstep.
- The Castello Beach Hotel is situated close to the Lemuria Gold Course, making the hotel an interesting prospect for golfers.
- Thanks to its location next to the beach, the hotel is perfect for a beach-side holiday.
- Anse Georgette ranks among Praslins' top two beaches, and is just 20 minutes' walk away from the hotel.
- The hotel's restaurant, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden, offers a calm, relaxed atmosphere for you to enjoy your food in.
This 4-star 'Suite Hotel' was opened in 2009, and is made up of 26 different suites in two-storey buildings. All of the suites are large, offering over 40m² to their guests. The hotel is located on the fine, sandy beach of Anse Kerlan, so it's great for a holiday spent swimming and sunbathing. The style of the German-run hotel has been considered right down to the smallest detail, and reflects a typical Seychelles island-style. The front is coloured in earthy pastel shades, and displays several round arches, balconies, verandas, and pointed rooftops. The interior is minimalistic yet luxurious, and the hotel's 4-star rating compares well with international standards (not a sure-thing for all Seychelles accommodations).
The hotel is located in the north-west of Praslin, and island which offers numerous attractions, such as the Vallée de Mai nature reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers a variety of flora and fauna unique to the region. On top of this, Praslin offers scuba diving, hiking paths, and many spectacular beaches, including Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette, two of the whitest, most perfect beaches anywhere in the world. You can walk to Anse Georgette right from the hotel, and this beautiful powdery beach is often deserted, even during the high season.
The suites of the hotel are equipped with their own seating area, fan, air-conditioning, spacious bathroom with shower and washbasin, and private veranda or balcony. We recommend the Castello Beach hotel to anyone looking for a high-class, affordable hotel with a beach-front location. The hotel also offers a pool, should you prefer that to the open ocean, as well as a tropical garden and an excellent restaurant, all of which round out the package nicely.

A rather small, family hotel on the beach Anse Kerlan, which is right on the beach. Two small bays with fine, white sand and crystal blue water. In our time (November) with stronger waves and currents. A pool overlooking the sea is also available. All staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and the whole area / hotel were very well maintained. The food (had half board) was delicious, a wide selection - where everyone finds something suitable to eat. The hotel is located on the west coast near the airport. This makes you hear the starting and landing propeller machines several times a day. We stayed there for 5 nights and had a rental car for 2 days, which was taken directly to the hotel (also booked through SeyVillas). Alternatively, you can explore the island by bus.

Hotel very nice, too bad that the breakfast is not up to par. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. We felt very welcome there. The rooms are a good size, but a bit 'cold'. However, since we were traveling a lot and anyway only to sleep there, this did not really bother us. The breakfast was good. We only had dinner there twice, that was ok but not overwhelming. We found nice restaurants in the area, where we ate very well. The cool thing was that the hotel had a partnership with the Lemuria Golf Hotel, so we were able to get to the entrance and enjoyed the privilege of getting to the Anse Gorgette without any prior notice. That was perfect. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Castello unfortunately came to our very good hotel on La Digue and could not quite keep up. Room and grounds we liked and the beds were very good. However, the service in the restaurant and the food left a lot to be desired. There was hardly any choice in the food, which was not really delicious. And the ladies to the service were always disturbed, whatever. A young waiter at the bar and Laura from the front desk made up for it. That's why there are three stars. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is very nice, cared for and staff assistance continues. Clean even if more attention I would have given. Anyway, I recommend it. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
The Castello Beach Hotel is a very nice, smaller hotel with extremely friendly staff. You always had the feeling to be welcome and you took care of every concern immediately. Our room was on two floors, had a lot of space, was nicely decorated and above all clean. Unfortunately, there was a bit higher waves during our travel time, so that you could not always get into the water on the short stretch of beach. However, due to the location of the hotels, it is not far to one of Pasline's most beautiful beaches, the Anse Georgette. I would go to the Castello Beach Hotel anytime. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
There is not really anything to complain about the hotel. Great breakfast, friendly staff, great location, just right for us. One notices, however, that the house is no longer the youngest. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Great hotel, very nice and friendly staff, good kitchen, great beach and in a great location! Price / performance is right! We can highly recommend the Castello. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very nice facility, good guest relation. In the restaurant partly not very open and hearty, often there was for breakfast various things after half the time not more. But overall, everything is beautiful Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Improved hotel, superior service compared to 2 other hotels, better standing. The room was very spacious, nice little suite, however, some of the trunk keys did not work and the toilet flush worked badly. Good restoration. Home warm enough, and concerned about their customers. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
The location is on a desirably small beach via a staircase to reach, the water is wonderfully clear. The hotel is very good, as are the great rooms and the service. The area is very nice and tasteful, everything is there, what you want. The staff on site are very friendly and warm, the rooms are great. Great location for various excursions. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very nice hotel, also very large rooms, beach and beach chairs very great. But unfortunately in this hotel staff very very rude, once said it, but nothing happened. Unfortunately, in this hotel was a construction, as they make the terrace wooden floor new! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The complex is very well maintained, we felt very comfortable there. Especially at the beginning of the stay in the Seychelles this first destination was ideal to arrive on the island. The location of the hotel is a bit out of the way, if you are looking for an alternative to the very well cooked dinner buffet, you are dependent on bus / taxi or car rental. The breakfast buffet should start at 7.30, who is there at that time, finds nothing in the individual containers, can take half an hour to set up everything. The staff is friendly, with the exception of the owner who is hardly in contact with his guests. Really disturbing is especially with increasing length of the stay the noise of the starting plane in the immediate vicinity behind the hotel. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very attractive well-maintained complex, beautifully planted with many flowering plantings. The rooms are very spacious and well maintained. The staff was absolutely friendly and helpful. The restaurant is located directly on the sea, the breakfast was very good and extensive. Very well maintained small complex directly on the sea with direct access to the small beach. The swimming is very good, but a walk on the beach, not a big bay. The dream beach "Anse Georgette" can be reached via the nearby golf course, but is only possible with registration, which should be made in time. There is a bus stop right in front of the hotel. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
a very nice hotel, the rooms are spacious and clean, the teams are attentive and everything is very well suited for children. Only one negative point, the food, the food is ok but for a 4 star we expected a few more qualities. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Cleanliness, location, food, staff excellent; Room service very slow, slow; you could easily make small renovations with simple means (we have already discussed in detail on site) Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The location of the hotel was a bit secluded but not so bad right outside the door is a bus stop and you can get there quickly. But definitely recommend a car. The rooms are very spacious and well equipped you will not miss anything. Cleanliness is also important here the whole area is very clean and tidy whether garden or pool. The food is also very good breakfast buffet is very rich. A la carte I personally found too expensive. Drinks were priced ok. The staff was mostly very nice and helpful. Would definitely recommend it. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
very friendly staff in all areas, which is always approachable and helpful. Clean and well maintained in the outdoor area, restaurant and in the room. Nearby there are several small supermarkets and restaurants, so you do not always depend on the hotel. The sea is less suitable for swimming. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Pleasant quiet location, wonderful sunsets. We had only booked breakfast and ate dinner in the evening. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
After the hotel change from La Digue a small disappointment. Hotel already a bit shabby but clean. Beach was as good as unusable. At high tide too high waves. Food was just bad for a 4 star hotel. Drinks overpriced .. At least the staff were friendly and accommodating. One had simply expected more from this property. Was the only downside to this really great holiday. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice area Nice, spacious family room Friendly staff Good food Plenty of beach chairs on the beach Beautiful sunsets Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Unfortunately we had to realize that the Castello Beach Hotel is already old and a renovation would be necessary. It lacks an ordering hand (although allegedly under German management), which ensures that, for example, stains of the system are eliminated (eg the material storage next to the pool). The staff could be friendlier and more dedicated. For example, when leaving, no good trip was desired, the service in the restaurant was not very sensitive. The room was always clean, but for our taste it was a bit too big to feel comfortable. The location is ideal, because right on the sea with a small beach and a partly magnificent sunset. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our choice for this hotel was very good. It is very quiet located directly on the sea with a small beach. The staff was very friendly and you were politely received and served. Small review: The breakfast was good but only toast bread is a bit boring for us with the time. Otherwise there was nothing to complain about the food (half board) or complain. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is rather new, the service but unfortunately not so great. We had a room where the bathroom door could only be closed noisily, the slats were missing some slats. After 5 hours of waiting we got a (!) A new room, at least one category better, but a holiday was gone. The food was very good. There was no buffet, only a la carte. The hotel has only German guests. The beach chairs at the pool and beach are good and adequate. However, the hotel does not have a real beach in the sense. It is a bit of sand, on which lie the beach chairs, then comes a wall and then the sea. No matter if it's high tide or low tide, there is never a beach to see. The waves are thundering so hard against the wall that I would not recommend swimming. Right and left of the hotel there is still a small beach section, rather tiny, but only at low tide to see. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Cleanliness was very good Location a bit outside but no problem with the bus The food could be a bit more varied and fresher Staff very friendly and accommodating Accommodation we would recommend Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The stay at the Castello Beach Hotel was very nice. All clean. The beach chairs are beautiful and varied designed. The surcharge for a not incl. Dinner was very expensive (about 40 € per person). We mostly ate out or ordered snacks like pizza, fries, sandwiches. Bus stop directly in front of the hotel entrance. Wi-Fi available. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Nice, quiet location, clean, good beds and good food. In the evening there was a buffet or à la carte. It is a bit off. The noise from the nearby airfield was negligible. Friendly, attentive staff! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Decent. Beach not practicable. Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
We had hoped for more. The pictures look more beautiful than the hotel is in reality. It was always clean, but our bed was in a catastrophic condition. The food was good, but the buffet prices and the offer were not enough for us. Man had promised us in the booking honeymoon specials, which were also clearly described in the email from Seyvillas, but when we wanted to claim them, it was said that it would only be from 5 nights (we were 4 there). At the other two hotels, which we had booked, but such special conditions were always there in the email from Seyvillas. We do not know who made a mistake here, at any rate it was a great pity. The beach and the beach chairs are so nice and the staff was very friendly. We would still recommend it, because of the poor price / performance ratio and the optics. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Our favorite on the islands; a very nice, picturesquely situated boutique hotel, with its own, well-kept beach with enough shade. Those who refuse the restaurant, the Mittgagssnacks, pizzas and Creole evening buffet, avoid, find in the area other restaurants, take aways and mini-markets with the essentials Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Overall, we had a great time at Castello Beach. The hotel is no longer run by a German manager, which clearly shows the quality of the breakfast and the service. The rooms are spacious and would be cleaned daily. What we lacked, were entertainment in the area but which were on the entire Seychelles almost nowhere to be found. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The food buffet was a bit careless and monotonous. Service, cleanliness and friendliness were very good. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Easy and pleasant. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Good location, the starting island hopper planes are little and easy to bear. Own hotel beach with large stones and groynes, but in between you can go into the water. Room without sea view, but big, clean, tidy. Creole evening with music and dancing with many locals. Was funny. Cocktails and beer (Seybrew) were of course served on the beach. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Very good. Spic and span. Highly recommended !!! 5 stars !!! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
All the best, cleanliness, spacious suite, always friendly, some entertainment with music and dancing with locals. Had fun. In any case, at the end of February and beginning of March, we were always able to swim even at low tide. Even with light waves swimming was no problem. Food was good. Would go back anytime. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Hotel with a great location, perfect service and our room NR.12 was perfect! Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Castello Beach Hotel on Praslin is highly recommended. Everything fits here. Location on Anse Kerlan in the northwest, 10 minutes from the airport. Flight with Air Seychelles we booked extra on the internet (about 50 EUR). It's great to fly from Mahe to Praslin (15 min.). The direct flight Vienna - Mahe OS21 lasts only 8.5 hours. Had a huge room with half board. Breakfast and dinner take place in a side-facing building overlooking the sea (10 meters away). Food good, the beach with comfortable beach chairs under shady Kasuarinen is great! Turquoise sea and white sand. And important: since there is no reef, it is also nice at low tide pleasantly deep into the water. No currents or high waves. Just beautiful. Many recommendable excursions: Dream beaches: Anse Georgette (to be registered at the reception!), Anse Lazio, Curieuse and St. Pierre, Vallee du Mai (Cco de Mer palm trees, ...). Rent a car for 2 days. We stayed there for 5 nights, then changed to La Digue by ferry. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Under the expectations.un discomfort: bad air conditioning and room infested by bed bugs..a sleepless night..only on our insistence continue after 2 days they have changed room Translation (IT): GoogleTranslate
Location: very good Cleanliness: good (shower not so nice) Friendliness: very good Restaurant: good (service in the restaurant could be friendlier) Breakfast: good, dinner and offer we did not find so great! Overall: very nice and well maintained Transfer: very good Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The hotel is very cozy and due to its size (only 25 suites) it gives a very familial atmosphere. I was very well filled. The food was tasty and varied, if I had wished for a bit more fruit on the breakfast buffet. But there is something everywhere. The staff both at the front desk or in the service was always friendly and helpful. When I was "bitten" on the last day in the sea, I was immediately helped, brought the evening meal in the room and looked at me again and again. Very careful. Thanks again Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
There is nothing to criticize. All very friendly, delicious food, great spacious rooms. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Hotel with a lot of charm, beautiful vegetation, very warm atmosphere very friendly staff and very available, very nice suite. Good food, drinks prices a little too high. Translation (FR): GoogleTranslate
Great room. Great staff. Great food. Great pool. 30 min walk to 4 of best beaches on the planet (3 owned by golf course - so permission needed). Many thanks.
Just great Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Everything great. There is nothing to criticize. A great hotel with first class staff. Price performance a bit too high compared to other hotels. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Many small and big defects accompanied our time in the Castello. Food: Especially after the La Diguoise rather bad. Breakfast: not good fruit, cheap and sweet jams ... which was amazing on the Seychelles. The egg preparation was always adventurous. Dinner: was mostly ok. Very European oriented, as there was always pasta when choosing the main meal. At 7 days there was to our chagrin 3 times buffet. At the buffet the food was unfortunately mostly lukewarm to cold and not very good in taste. The room was very nice and big. Unfortunately the shower drain is completely blocked. Repairs such as toilet flushing or even bed problems could not really be solved. The pool looked relatively dirty. We did not dare. Especially at night in the spotlight you could admire the thick layer of dirt. The hotel lacks much heart and love. There was a lack of many little things. A smile from the staff. Everyone seemed very sad .... Or that chairs are put back properly after the guests used them. Although the hotel is run by a German couple ... you could not feel it. Unfortunately, the hotel was also 90% of German guests visited .... we had not looked for in our vacation. Also a pity was that we did not get a honeymoon special in this hotel despite demand. Although we have received another discount (Pay 5, Stay 7). Nevertheless, we would have been happy about a little attention such as fruit, a bottle of wine or the candlelight dinner. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
Organization good, comfort good, punctuality good, kindness good, helpfulness of persons good, food now and then good. Transfer partly good and bad Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
