We stayed at the Fisherman's Cove Hotel and had a fantastic time. The staff is wonderful at all levels. We really felt like everyone went out of their way to accommodate us. The front desk staff and the pool/recreation staff are especially helpful and friendly. The beach was not in the best condition during our stay. Staff told us that during the summer time (including February), the sea is a little rougher on the west side of the island. We were told that in April and May, the beach is beautiful. It wasn't a big concern for us, we simply walked 100 yards down the beach to swim where it was less rocky. Overall, we loved the Seychelles and will return one day. We found the Fisherman’s Cove splendid in terms of surroundings and the friendly, helpful staff.
