Sey Trip
Nice hotel. The only one in the area right on the beach. Good pool. Room overlooked pool and ocean. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Nice breakfast in restaurant overlooking beach and ocean. Not much to do in the area but there are restaurants nearby. Most seem to close around 10pm. Would recommend Gecko Bar at the Savoy (about 2 mins walk from the hotel). Nice food or just have a drink plus you get a 10% discount for being Coral Strand resident. Wednesday evening the "strip" livens up with music and food stalls otherwise very quiet. The Boathouse Bar is best for just having a drink and that's less than 10 min walk away. Overall very nice if you're ok with quiet life and beach holiday. Would recommend Teddy's Glass Bottom Boat trip to St Anne's Island for snorkelling island tour. Great boat crew and really nice lunch. One of our best days out. You can book at hotel or from one of the many vendors on the strip.

Coral Strand - great location.
The hotel is situated on the beach in a perfect location. The Beau Vallon beach is regarded as one of the best in the Seychelles. There are some excellent water sport activities at the location. The hotel food is good and reasonably priced although the alcoholic drinks incl local beers are very expensive. Some parts of the hotel need a bit of decoration. The staff are very helpful. Our sea view room was double booked and we were compensated with free breakfast for the duration of our stay, although we did get a ‘sea view’ room after a couple of days. We went on Teddy’s glass bottom boat trip arranged via one of the salesmen who frequent the beach in front of the hotel. That was excellent and I suggest a must do. The adjacent savoy hotel does excellent food which is discounted by 10% when staying at coral strand

Poor 2.0
Seychelles disappointment
Chaos on arrival, staff shouting at each other on the telephone, then they couldn’t find our reservation. Finally got a room but not in the booked higher room category! Ended up in a room with damaged wardrobe, messy shower cabin and an A/C unit that couldn’t be controlled apart from on/off... Breakfast is average, area behind the bar minging! This place is old, rundown, overpriced and run by non professional staff. Stay away!

Poor 2.0
Deceptive photos. Room sold not given.
We'd booked a Superior Room with an ocean view for 4 nights along with another couple with the same booking. Arriving late in the evening we went to our rooms and thought there had been a mistake but too late to complain. When we checked with staff in the morning it was found that the rooms we had been sold were in fact a Classic Room with an Ocean View. The photos on the site are of the penthouse specifically beside the description of Superior Room, Ocean View. We were not happy as they could not accommodate these rooms. Deceptive advertising.They offered to move us to the Savoy next door for an additional 50 Euro a night. Best decision ever! Both hotels are in a great location yet the Savoy is far superior. The Coral Strand is a basic 70's style hotel on a good beach. There is no privacy on the balconies and the bathroom is old. The Savoy is set back a little from the beach but 2 minutes from our room. It felt like going from a 3 star hotel to a plush 5 star!
