        10.0

        We got married at the Le Meridien Barbarons and truthfully we could not have asked for more. Veronique, the lady who deals with organising weddings was absolutely outstanding, she went beyond our expectations. Everything was already done and all we had to say was I do. The rest of the staff always greeted us with a smile and the level of service was fast and efficient. The location was beautiful and our room was relaxing with all the options we could ask for. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, it made for the perfect trip to the seychelles.

        We liked everything.

        we do not like the condition, the dirty, the swimming pool that was not clean, due to a broken pump and filter, for over 18 days. we did not like the fact that for changin our bedding linen we have to beg and give a stip. We did not like that everyday we have not towel available in the bath and in the swimming pool as they have to wash the dirty, so in the eveing you have to request your towel and wait before taking a shower. the service is down, seems in complete anarchy, and because we complain we recieve a few telephone call per night up to the point that we have to disconnect the phone. we have also to go on buffet as they told us that they put something on your food as lassative.

        The location gives a sense of peace and tranquility which was good

        1. our request was a terrace suite; but was not given one. 2.The restaurant staff were not too friendly or should i say biased.However there was a locum from USA and another lady Maria who were real and made us feel welcome

        To be honest, we have not so many things we liked because we spent only one night and, due to a big trouble caused by the hotel staff, we nearly missed the flight.

        I definitively didn't like the hotel staff. when we arrive on the 10th of April we waited for one hour to have a room. the day after we spent more than two hours for the check out. They were charging us the daily rate (431 euros per room per night - B&B basis -) instead of the rate confirmed through your website (189 euros per room per night - B&B basis -). I tried to show them your e-mail confirmation but no internet site was working, in spite of my printed confirmation I brought from Italy. After two hours they finally honored the rate of 189 euros per room. But I can't pay by credit card because internet was not working and I had to pay by cash the two room rates and I have no more money until my arrival in Italy. The only thing we received by them for paying cash was two free of charge dinners, letting us pay the other two. Then we asked them to call us a taxi but they refused although we were risking to miss the flight. Our flight was at 11.15am and we were 40 minutes away from the airport at 9.00am. It was when we started shouting to have a taxi that they give us a taxi (not a vehicle provided by the hotel although the damage caused!). We were really disappointed by our stay. It is a luxury hotel and the service received (together with the rough manners used by the staff) consistent with a very low standard hotel.

        Only the staff is nice. Polite and they seem to try hard to compensate the unacceptable bad and old facilities de hotel has.

        The hotel is really old with terrible facilities and is not worth it the price. It seems to be forgotten in the middle of nowhere. The reception, facilities, swimming pool and restaurants are old-fashioned. The bussiness center is poor and the internet often is out of service.

        We stayed at the hotel in 2007 and wanted to return for a special occasion which was made very memorable by one member of the Reservations team in particular, Nathalie. The hotel is lovely and relaxing - a perfect retreat :)

      • Family with children

        Very nice location and nice personnel at reception.

        Personnel at restaurants were too bored and paid less attention to the clients. Prices for services were bit on a high side.

        it is very close to a secluded beach, which was great. even if we are in our room, we could enjoy a stunning view of the sea and the mountains...

        the location was great but far from civilization, which made it hard to enjoy any external activities given the taxi fare is extremely expensive. and the food was not that great. You would expect more from a 4 star meridien. the room were clean but no extra touch was felt anywhere in the hotel

      • Family with children

        The beach and the ocean view

        The room was not very clean and the towels were dirty and there were many insects in the room

        It s thé worst hotel of my Life

        It s very old and not very clean

      • Older travelers
        3.2

        Staff were very rude on arrival, treating guests like cattle.very poor service all round.. 1* only due to the sea view.We requested a sea view room on booking but did not get one.WHY, If non were available why accept our booking, we could have changed hotels and would have.The food and beverage is up to 10x dearer than outside venues WHY.It is a tired place and has very poor facilities.PLEASE Do not send anyone else here.The island is a stunning place and we escaped by hiring a car which made up for such a bad experience.

      • Family with children

        the breakfast

        the pool wasn't clean and the hotel in general is not really children friendly (no activities for them) also they did not give any helpful info about nearby attractions, restaurant etc...asking that in the front desk was like asking a total unusual question ...staff ill prepared.

      • Family with children
        7.8

        The location is perfect for staying with kids, the sea is just in front.

        Dependent of the wind, there is bad smell in the rooms in the morning and afternoon due to the cleaning system behind the hotel.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The staff was friendly and attentive. The breakfast was pretty good. Food, in general, is over priced. Had one excellent dinner during the stay because the service was exceptional.

        Several things like pool lights, water features, and room lights were in disrepair. The sea is too rough to swim. The staff did not have accurate information about bus schedules, shop locations and timing, and didn't seem especially organized.

      • Couple
        5.8

        The dinners at the hotel restaurant were excellent, it was very various.

        The hotel is so old, it must be renovate.
