About the Hotels
The variety of hotels has exploded in the past few years. From ultraluxurious private island resorts to five-star global hotel brands to numerous three-star hotels, and an increasing number of guest houses, B&Bs, and self-catering units, there are plenty of choices. Almost all hotel rates include breakfast; many are on a half-board system, and a few (mostly the private islands) operate on a full-board system (i.e., all-inclusive). Most half- and full-board plans include a buffet dinner (versus the à la carte menu, if there’s one at your hotel). If staying near a tourist destination where there are plenty of restaurant choices (such as Beau Vallon or Anse Royale in Mahé, or Côte d’Or in Praslin), it may be a better value (and more interesting) to take only the B&B option. All hotels accept credit cards. The star rating system that you'll find on the island is determined by the Seychelles Tourism Board.
