Our villa was fantastic and all the staff were helpful. The beach is quite small but picturesque and there is snorkelling off the beach. Whilst the snorkelling environment isn't the prettiest that we encountered during our stay in the Seychelles there were lots of fish and we saw a sea turtle which made my wife very happy! The food was nice. We wanted to finish our honeymoon in a premium hotel and this definitely fitted the bill.
