Cerf Island Resort in Mahe, Seychelles

Carved into a hillside and surrounded by a marine nature reserve, Cerf Island Resort is the go-to getaway spot when the need calls for seclusion, spectacular surroundings and unsurpassed services. Located in Seychelles, an archipelago consisting of more than 100 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean northeast of Madagascar, the resort is an oasis and a place to reenergize your soul. Situated at the entrance to Sainte Anne National Marine Park, guests can choose from one of 24 private villas, all of which strike a perfect balance for enjoying the tropical surroundings without relinquishing any modern amenities. The Hillside Villas are flanked with four-poster beds, sprawling al fresco bathrooms with tandem tubs, and sliding doors that open onto spacious balconies. The Hideaway Villas boast private sun gardens and a roomier floor plan, while the timbered Tortoise Suites offer an expansive master bedroom and bath, lounge and living room.

The resort's 1756 Restaurant is a remarkable culinary destination with a cliff-top location and panoramic ocean views. It offers a menu of traditional Creole cuisine coupled with international fare, fresh seafood, and locally harvested ingredients. For those who need some added pampering, the Cerf Island Resort's Private Mini Spa is positioned halfway up the hill and is surrounded by a grove of trees abutting a rainforest. It accommodates only one person or couple at any given time, and the lucky occupant is privy to a menu of massages administered in the indoor/outdoor treatment room - complete with private steam room, outdoor shower, relaxation garden and Rainforest Jacuzzi. Guests are further spoiled with an infinity pool, poolside bar and a full-service beach experience.

Disappointing. Not good value for money. The resort is a tired and while the rooms are spacious and in good condition, and some of the staff are friendly, the pool was out of order (seemingly since last month?) the canoes in a shabby state, snorkelling gear old and mismatched, tennis court dilapidated, spa treatments hard to book, drinks and meals expensive for what you get. The food for the first 2 days was pretty awful. The chef who was away apologised and things improved slightly. When we complained the General Manager was defensive and not prepared to listen, almost argumentative. We had to involved two other travel companies and in the end negotiated a small discount on drinks only (which were already overpriced). There was a bit of disorganisation over timings for meals, spa treatments and snorkelling. Overall left feeling quite unhappy and would not return or ever recommend.

Everything was ok. Kayaks were in poor repair and no fun to use at all. Ditto the snorkelling equipment. Room was nice enough. They were repairing the pool whilst we were there so constant drilling was taking place. We got eaten alive by mosquitoes which was irritating until we also got eaten alive by sandflies which made the mosquitoes seem quite pleasant by comparison. The boys who did the free boat transfer to the mainland were super helpful and picked us up late because we wanted to have a few drinks on the mainland so a big thumbs up to them. Food was ok, nothing special but not bad either. We wouldn’t return because there is a lot of competition in the Seychelles and some of the other places are just better.

My husband and I stayed on Cerf resort at the end of our honeymoon. We were very much looking forward to staying at the resort but found it to be a bit tired and lacking compared to the photos and the resort website. Being on a nature reserve means there are lot of insects, including mosquitos and despite the weekly fumigation of the resort (which was a bit odd) we did get quite badly bitten. The beach and the swimming pools are all excellent, with plenty of sun loungers available. The main reason we booked the resort, however, was the option to use kayaks to kayak to nearby Moyenne and Round Island. We were disappointed to find that there were actually only two kayaks available, and six oars - for a resort with 20+ villas! We ended up washing out a third kayak that had been left unattended for what seemed like weeks, and was full of leaves, after being told we couldn't use it. In fact, it was perfectly fine, it had just been neglected by the hotel staff. That said, kayaking out to the sand bank and Moyenne Island was one of the best things we did all honeymoon, so it was worth the effort! The food at Cerf Resort was not as good as the other hotels we stayed in on other islands, despite this hotel being the most expensive. Breakfast was often a bit bare, with some of the options unavailable. Dinner was perfectly acceptable, but again, if you sat down slightly later in the evening the options were limited. Service was average, and often a bit abrupt. Overall, the resort is perfectly fine, if not a little bit tired, but it did not live up to the high expectations or promises on the website (e.g. the tennis court is old, and has not been very well looked after) and for us, was not worth the money when compared to other hotels available.

Cerf Island Resort attracted us because of the closeness to the airport as well as being part of a National Reserve. We were delighted by the generosity of the lay-out of the bungalows as well as their space, a good 100 m2. Clean, debris-free beaches and nice excursions within the reserve either on your own or assisted are good too. Food/Beveridge sections were great: Good quality as well as opportunity to try local curry menus. Personal welcome at arrival, assistance if something is needed and friendlyness of the people are noteworthy. To improve, we would suggest updating the equipment for snorkling, canooing and repairing the beach chairs. Some of these items are malfunctioning and annoying guests. The place is about 15 years old.

I love this island,location extremely beautiful. Room excellent,very clean and comfortable..No wifi in the room you have to go down to the lobby to get access.Nelly the staff on reception very friendly.. I spent 2 days on the island for my birthday..i did not enjoy the food in the restaurant at dinner time. I was on H/B. No variety of food and the taste of food not fresh,i request for vanilla ice cream what i gt is coconut with vanilla instead, there is not enough vanilla,milkshake terrible.. But in general the staff is friendly i can say.. My Birthday cake was amazing, good taste.. Love it.. Thanks very much for the cake.
