    It was exactly as described on the booking site only better, staff try hard to please especially Chef Damien who had everybody making a beeline for his Dinner buffet. The setting of the hotel on a lush mountainside gave it a large resort feel. Great value for money considering prices around Seychelles. Close to Port Launey and Anse Soleil two great beaches by car renting one is necessary though.

    Nothing bad really except that there was no cable TV or WIFI if you cannot live without it!

    The location of the hotel is 800 meters up from the main road in the area, and in my meaning quite steep, So therefor it is in my opinion suited more for guests arriving by cars or taxi.

    In these times (2012) it is unusual and difficult for guests not be able to pay with credit card! The hotel are not having the possibility to make any payments.

    Excellent location and stunning view on the bay and the mountain. Outstanding dinner buffet prepared by the Chef Damien. Infinity pool, stylish rooms which feature also a stereo and a fridge with separated cooled wine compartments and room with a real big panoramic terrace (we took a room at the top floor). Good value for money and care of the details. We definitely recommend Villa Vanilla if you are looking for a good quality hotel with half/full board possibility within this range of price.

    The road to get to the hotel is very steep and you need a car to go up and down to the main road and to the sea.

    The view is amazing Like heaven and special, you can see a fabulous picture of the ocean , mountain and forest. The staff Margerit and Zita are very friendly. Chef Demien is highly professional and he will let you fall in love with creole cuisine. The idea of half board package is very suitable because of the hotel being remote and it is good to come back before being dark. Dinner creates a family atmoshpere and intimate ambience

    . Mosquitos are an issue here, they need an electric repellant, there is no reception and staff leave at 9pm. This makes you isolated specially in such location. Hot water is not always available

    It's setting: A steep road through local housing leads to Villa Vanilla. Beyond it is only the mountain rainforest of Morne National Park. Our room with its wrap around balcony gave us the best of views onto this

    Creole dinner offered by Chef Damien was excellent. Breakfast was also good with fresh tropical fruits, cheese and ham. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Room was beautifully designed and well cleaned every day. Therese Island trip arranged by the hotel was wonderful; we could enjoy the bbq and beautiful beaches.

    Very little info beforehand on how steep the way to the hotel was....Almost impossible to walk with suitcases and too dark during nights. Need a car indeed. Amenyty was very limited, no tissue box, dryer and tv channels available in the room. It would be better if the hotel had maps, bus time tables and other basic brochures for the guests. Credit card payment wasn't accepted, which was inconvenient for a long stay.

    I like the decoration of the place.

    A lot of bugs and msquitos during the night. Nobody to help with the bags during check out because all the staff work from morning till 8:00 pm only the owner stays in his suite. There is no line for telephone and no phones inside the rooms. There is no internet and the only modem is with the owner. You have to ask him to bring the WiFi in the lobby if you want to use it. No room service and no transportation availabe in the area. The bus is 20 mins walking down the hill. The place does not have any security or gate or reception. At night time you feel like in a camp in the middle of a jungle. Food is not good especially breakfast. Payment has to be Cash which is stupid.

    Excellent host and owner, David accommodates for every need. The chef Damian makes outstanding food!! Located right in the forest.

    For some, the distance to the beach might be an issue. But not for us, we loved how we were embedded in nature.

    Every body goes to Seychelles to a place as close as poss to the beach. V N is a perfect alternative and still not far from the ocean. You hear the ocean from your bed; The location is wonderful. By its location, the cool ocean wind finds you on the beautiful private terrace and into your room. You are in the middle of tropical forest + view on two different bays..;The staff is giving perfect service and were sooo nice to us. It is a very quite place. Do not expect a disco next door....

    Good location, priceless view, friendly staff and very delicious food by chef Damien. Would go back.

    Just one thing - hotel happens to have problems with water pressure which makes taking shower a bit difficult.
