Acajou Hotel review
With 24 rooms what in Europe would be described as a boutique hotel. Our rooms were great-excellent balconies/connected-if a little dark. Only about 5-10 rooms occupied while we were there which gave us virtually exclusive use of the pool and sunloungers - each day they'd set up 5 umbrellas we'd use 2 and it was only towards the end of our 7 days that more than one other was occupied.
It is on a picture perfect beach Anse Volbert some 2 kilometres of white sand and gentle sea fringed with forested hills with tropic birds seychelles pigeons and fodys in profusion-birds fed by the hotel each morning.I 'd describe it as the West Indies without the people-on a busy day there were 10 people on the beach.
Downsides-nowhere to eat other than the hotel and the hotel food was average-poor stodgy puddings in particular-a week was enough. The other end of the beach is busier but the pizzeria attached to the hotel is awful - for bacon read fat etc.
The beach bar was closed for several days ostensibly for fire drills but more likely because we were pretty much the only customers.
We were badly bitten at night-no insect protection provided.
