    Very good

    The hotel is at an excellent location, right by the magnificent beach. The facilities such as wifi, hospitality were also good and the staff very helpful and friendly. The price was fair.

    The waiters at the Ocean Deck Restaurant were very slow, especially on Christmas Day and even getting a menu was a problem. We had to call the Manager and it was only at this point that we got served. That was rather disappointing.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is right on the beach and is well positioned for the sun through- out the day. There are various dive shops in the area and a coral area suitable for diving at the far end of the beach.

    The restraurant staff could have been a little more attentive and the bar did not open to late in the morning, around 11 A.M. It was mentioned that the hotel was in a 'warm-up' period ready for the busy season and that some facilities may not be up-to-speed.

    The proximity to the beach.

    The room doesn't have any amenities,the Internet on the tv doesn't even work,the wireless Internet only works by the swimming pool plus very slow. The half board menu they offer its the same menu through out the week except on Sunday,the staffs are not even professionals and luck friendly approach with guests, the rooms by the beach 3 of them are very noisy because of thin walling material used, all in all I regret that I spent that much money for 3nights in a hotel doesn't even provided us with the very basic things you will get from any other hotel on the island, Mahe is beautiful and have a lot of hotels which offer so many services to guests as per your pocket but not coral strand!!! Please Booked.net revise your deals with them as they don't have 2/3of what they say about their hotel! It will question your repetition in the future. Thank you

    Staff overwhelmed, services tends to be too slow at times.

    Superb

    Located on a very nice beach. Some work still being done on the hotel compound so no parking, even though it was stated there was parking. Good internet access in my room. Excellent breakfast buffet, not just a continental breakfast. Fairly close to bus stop so accessible without having to rent a vehicle or taxi.

    Satellite tv didn't work. They said it was a problem with the provider.

    Superb

    The location was premium! It was right on the beach, close to many ammenities. The staff was wonderful at accomodating any needs you may have encountered. The breakfast buffet was good, but we were disappointed canned fruit was used instead of fresh fruit.

    The hotel had partially reopened after renovations. There was no telehone or working t.v. in the room. No one bothered to mention that there would be limited things available. No one from the management contacted us in reply that had been sent with questions regarding our stay, I had to call the hotel. The email address given on the website was for the marketing department, not the reservations department.

    I visited Coral Strand while my trip back home after visiting Praline Island to the airport. I had only one day to rest as well. This hotel was able to reach all my wishes. Fast check-in, nice room with an ocean view. Standard room isn’t large, but light and clean. Room amentias: safe box, refrigerator, king size bed, flat tv, air conditioner, table, chair, flashlight. I was surprised to see tea and coffee facilities. Swimming- pool is compact, with deep side for those who can swim, and small separated part for children. On this site there are 2 showers. Beach begins straight after pool area. On the left side there are banana, jet- ski, parasailing and other water entertainment things. Food is great. During the day there was barbeque in the pool restaurant. Very tasty! For the dinner I went to try a-la carte. Carpaccio is fantastic! Seriously, delicious. In the evening there was live music at the Ocean Deck Pub – nice covers on the classic rock hits. I’d like to recommend this hotel for everybody: it’s good enough as for single travelers like me, as for honeymooners.

    Wi-fi is surcharged now :-(

    Good

    Location is ideal, staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Hotel still under renovation...This should be clarified to people when booking. Tv is not functional, ac dripping water, No telephone to call room service, No concierge. Parking next door is still a construction site. We paid for an Ocean view room but were given a garden view room when we arrived. Had to fight to get the ocean view which was only available the next day.

    Excellent location, great water sports

    Service was not good. Staff at reception did not have adequate knowledge of seychelles and the hotel needs a proper concierge.

    Please, if you like your money: don't book this hotel. At arrival on 29/April/2012 I've found that my room was on the 4th floow and no elevator, no TV, no Safe, no Telephone. The room floor was full of sand and the bed was also covered with a thick sand dust due to the constructions works that were in progress in the hotel. You cannot sleep before 02AM due to the customers noise and screams: the bar is outdoors and the noise echoes. The bathroom towels are "yellow" and not clean. When taking a shower, the water flows in the bedroom. I've stayed one night and I moved to another hotel in the next morning.

    Fabulous

    Clean spacious rooms, everything looks very new, comfortable beds, location, price of food and drinks, response to complaint.

    Room 101 - it's supposed to be sea-view but due to renovation works just outside and it being on the groundfloor, it certainly doesn't classify as seaview. Luckily the staff was very helpful and instantly gave us a fabulous room on the 4th floor with amazing seaview after complaining about the room.

    Very good

    It was the perfect hotel to just relax and enjoy the staff's hospitality and good food! We enjoyed swimming in the ocean and walking on the beautiful white sandy beach.

    We booked the junior suite for its ocean view, but the sound of the ocean was so loud that we could not sleep at night. Management was kind enough, though, to move us to the fifth floor where it was more peaceful with still a great view of the ocean (and the room was much bigger). It is a pity that even the non-motorised water sport is subject to a charge.

    The location was good.

    This was terrible, it was still under construction in some parts, room had no services as advertised by Booked.net. Over priced rubbish... Shocking. I have had better food at takeaway than here... Very very un-happy customer and feel Booked.net should by taken to account for there advertising of this hotel. regards Chris stokes
