Good 7.4 From 54 reviews

Fair 4.0
Located on a beautiful beach it had all the potential. Unfortunately it was a sad experience. Firstly, the reception looked like a junk storage. Somewhere between the piles of paper and rubbish we found a receptionist. She did not lose one smile going through the check in process and upfront payment. Secondly the most of pictures show a kind of pretty main house with the sea views. We were located in a garden villa passing by some junk yard and maintenance area. The other direction was full of drying out (?) matrac

HoneyMooning at Villa Chez Batista
Upon arriving at the airport we were greeted by a driver that had been arranged by the hotel. After a 30 minute ride south we arrived at the Takamaka area, we couldn't believe our eyes as we arrived at Villa Chez Bestia. The hotel is located at one of the most beautiful, secluded beaches on Mahe island. Reception was very accommodating; to help us better enjoy our honeymoon they upgraded our room for all of our stay as well as gave us late check out on the day of our flight out. The room had stairs directly from the room to the beach which is unique to Chez Betista, (as the law change after the hotel was built). The hotel staff was friendly and although it did take time to get towels or other requests we didn't mind waiting and rate them 5/5 (Important to note reception is open 8am-5pm). The restaurant has good food but the staff is less helpful so we preferred to eat in our room overall, the restaurant is 3/5. Keep in mind food and water are expensive. We suggest you buy your alcohol at duty free, to save some cash. The south of the island, next to the hotel, is less touristy so there were times we were alone on the beach, making it a very peaceful place to relax. The ocean behind the hotel is also ideal for snorkeling. The rooms do not have wifi but the hotel lobby does.

Nice Beach Hotel
Nice hotel located directly on the Takamaka beach. It was a beautiful beach, and when you are in the Seychelles, you cannot beat being on a beautiful beach. Anse Intendance is a 20-30 minute walk, and it is also beautiful, although with stronger waves. Hotel staff very nice. Restaurant is good and is literally on the water. I stayed in a room away from the beach. It was a good choice for me. Bed covers could have been better, but the bed was okay. You need a car if you want to see more of the island. Taxis are expensive. Very glad I stayed here and not at Beau Vallon. Chez Batista is the only hotel on the beach, and the increased privacy is great. Wi-Fi worked well.

Exceptional 10.0
The hotel is located in a beautiful bay that is relatively quiet. It is amazing to wake up right next to the ocean and to this view! We stayed in the junior suite in the house next to the pool and we think that it was the best choice. If you are looking for a quiet island get away, this is a perfect place for it and also doesn't break the bank. Staff was very nice and helpful. One night we came back after dinner and found dead bugs in our room which were trying to take shelter from an approaching storm. It didnt take them more than 5 minutes to send someone to clean up. We can definitely recommend this place!

Great location and beach - No service
Location of this hotel is fantastic. Right next to the beach, a really nice one and with a view from the restaurant as well. But the service is not good, they are not very friendly or smiley, a bit rude in the way they handle their guests. And when we had an issue with our room it took them forever to come and fix it even after saying multiple times they would come. For the price, there are plenty of other options with better service and same facilities.
