    Nice hotel

    Our experience was overall very good at Le Duc hotel. Food, restaurants, and beach were in high standard. Breakfast was not very diverse. There were ants in our room from the second we enter the room, and it took 3 days for the maintenance to seel the shower (they were only in the bathroom). Also, we had one day and a half with no hot water in the shower. The service was very good. I would like to mention the receptionists, Hillary and Jenne for there kindness, they help us a lot with finding cool places on the island and the area.

    Perfect place in heart of Praslin

    Beautiful hotel near the beach, in the heart of Praslin Island. Stuff is great, rooms are big, and everything is even much better than on the pictures. Perfect place for your hollyday on SEYCHELLES.

    A very well run establishment. The locals had respect and admiration for the owner, which was very impressive. Very peaceful place, all you heard was the ocean and local wildlife. Laid back and relaxing atmosphere. Reception was extremely friendly and helpful.

    The Duc

    We enjoyed the Duc. The staff were outstanding. This was really the strength of the operation. The location was also terrific. We stayed in the just-opened new complex. The rooms were ok but the new swimming pool was very, very nice. The new complex also features a very complete exercise room and even had a trainer available. The cafe next to the Duc (and run by them) had a very nice porch just above the high tide line on the ocean. We enjoyed that tremendously. There were a few negatives. Like almost every place we visited in the Seychelles the internet was sporadic and unreliable. All but the most basic browsing or email was generally not possible. When we did complain, however, the staff worked hard to improve what they could. The breakfasts offered by the hotel were generally good, but we didn't like the dinners which seemed very meat-heavy. There was generally no vegetarian option. (That having been said, I'm sure the staff would have done something had we asked). Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

    Wonderful Honeymoon Stay!

    Cant say enough good things about this place! Le Duc is a great hotel option in Praslin! It is in a good location with restaurants and many beaches nearby. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the staff are super friendly. A special thank you to Franchesca for making our honeymoon stay extra special!! She went above and beyond!! The restaurants serve up some tasty food options and the bars make delicious cocktails! The rooms are very spacious, clean, and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend the hotel for anybody staying on Praslin. Side tip, if you are on your honeymoon, bring a copy of your marriage certificate for some special extras. :) Renting a car is good as well, about a 15 minute drive to Anse Lazio and not too long to drive around the whole island and explore.

    A delightful hotel in the Seychelles

    An excellent hotel, the room was amazing, large, well appointed and very clean with a lovely terrace with a day bed as well as a table and chairs. A relatively small hotel, beautifully laid out with a calm and relaxing colour scheme reflecting the turquoise sea as well as a pretty tropical garden .

    Seychelles getaway

    Lovely, friendly hotel with lots of restaurants nearby within walking distance. Breakfast at the hotel was excellent. Good location as a base in Praslin but be prepared to get a taxi everywhere, as whilst there is a bus service they are infrequent and quite often full.
