Value
The Coral Strand Smart Choice Hotel stands out with a completely new hotel concept for the Seychelles: Premium comfort at an affordable price. The island's best value-for-money is located at the absolutely best area directly on the most attractive strip of beach in the famous Beau Vallon Bay on the largest of Seychelles' islands, Mahé. Hardly any other hotel has such a beach and ocean view. The 4 star plus hotel has 161 modern and attractively equipped rooms. There are 140 standard rooms, 4 junior suites, 21 deluxe rooms. The original Coral Strand opened in 1972 as one of the first hotels on the Seychelles. The name Coral Strand has always attracted guests with its breath-taking ocean views and fantastic location directly on the white sand beach. The last 40 years have seen a steady stream of return guests. The hotel bar with its live music has established itself as a legendary meeting point for tourists and locals. The original hotel was completely reconstructed and renovated with new design, equipment and contemporary comfort. The service offer was also completely reorganized. With the new name Coral Strand Smart Choice, the hotel now wants to offer the best value-for-money hotel in the Seychelles.

We went for this hotel because it was cheaper than other similar ones in the area and it was fantastic. With your stay you get 10% off in the spa and restaurant of the Savoy hotel next door (very luxurious looking) and free use of their gym which is a bonus. The pool and beach

This hotel was extremely disappointing for the price we paid. Rooms badly need refurbishing (we changed rooms twice and they didn’t look anything like in the photos), there is no privacy and the service in the restaurants we tried was slow and inefficient. It was so bad that we

We were expecting an en-suite in the master but there is one small bathroom only and the showers are very small. We were a family of three for the holiday and it was okay. Not brilliant but certainly doable. Enjoy

Some girl was smoking even in the ocean while swimming! Awful feeling for other non-smoking people around, where we were shocked with this! But no restrictions on Seychelles unfortunately, as I have a strong allergy for smoke!

The hotel has a rep on site who can offer car hire. If your landing at the airport there is also many car rental there also. You don’t need anything big as the island can be driven round in 3 hours and some roads very narrow
