There are certainly several more luxurious resorts on Praslin but this resort has everything anyone could ask for delivering a relative value. Powder white sand beach, a five star PADI dive shop on the premise with excellent diving, very good buffet breakfast, six restaurants and three grocery shops within walking distance , on site car rental and island tours. It is 15 minutes from the ferry jetty and same from the airport. The staff is very helpful and friendly, the WiFi is a bit slow but usually works (fee). Our "deluxe" room was spacious with a great view of the pool area.

... room. They'll pour a tablespoon of gin in your glass and then ask if you want to pay double for a real drink. They'll hand you an outrageous bill and, on close examination realize -oops - they accidentally doubled the total. Usually just an extra dollar here and there.

... and the visibility was a little milky in the distance. Maybe it’s the granite particulate. We encountered a couple of turtles, one just munched on coral while we petted him. We saw several sharks, balls of snappers and the usual array of tropical color when we heard a clicking noise. There 50 feet from us were nine dolphins. We don’t need to tell our friends who dive that an underwater encounter with ...
... site from Praslin and they only go when weather conditions permit. This was the first time in two months. About 20 minutes into our one hour journey the rain and wind started and the calm seas turned choppy. After some discussion, we aborted the plan and headed for nearby dive sites. We were thankful and we had two more great dives. On our return trip it started to rain very hard again. We donned our rain jackets and shivered a bit as we sped back to base.
