A big resort with lots of activities to do as well as a relaxing place. South beach nice and quiet and north beach beautiful views. Staff are friendly especially the buggy drivers and are helpful. Feeding the tortoises was nice. Spa area was clean and pretty. Breakfast buffet a very good selection. Overall a fabulous stay and would recommend.

Stayed: June 2018

We just returned from a grand experience at Constance Ephilia. The location is great, the services are superb, staff friendly, food great.

However, the scuba dive center was a disappointing experience. The training head Ms Lilian gave us a very unfriendly, rude, demoralizing and disappointing experience.

We, a group of five, went all the way from India to learn and experience Scuba Pady course. Her unprofessional approach made us enter the sea immediately on joining the course. And, in a few minutes, she created a demoralizing atmosphere. Instead of teaching techniques to the beginners, her approach was impatient and unprofessional.

Anyway, we would simply like to help those who may be considering Constance's diving center, to look for alternatives.

Otherwise, it was a great place to be. Good luck.

Room Tip: All good except the Scuba Diving services

Arrived yesterday morning (25/06). Made to feel very welcome after a long flight.

Our room (350) wasn’t ready yet but they got the paper work out the way and took us for a light continental breakfast. Very nice touch after traveling 24 hours and arriving at 8am (before official check in time).

We paid extra to do half board and this was payable when arriving so at some point I had to pay €120 per couple per day. That is a lot but I must say the food is very very good. Fruits are sweet and fresh. Eggs made to order. Buffet dinner has so much choice. Nobody goes hungry and everyone can find something they love.

Having stayed in the Maldives and eat there I reckon the food is even better here and is in fact is some of the best hotel food we have had anywhere in the world.

The gardens are lovely - our room (350) is right on the tip of the south end of the resort. It’s about a 10 min walk to the buffet restaurant (for breakfast and dinner) but the resort also has a northern part which I will review once we been there. Personally we love the walk as it helps walk off all the lovely food you just had. However, if you want a buggy ride to your room there is never a problem getting one or one stopping asking you if you want a ride.

The staff are extremely friendly. They all say hello anywhere on the resort. They always want to help and nothing is too much trouble. Authentic friendship is always our opinion of the people that work here. They seem happy to do their job and look after you.

The little pools around the junior suites are lovely and and for us only a few steps from our room. The room has a covered seating area and this is also great for relaxing.

The gym and spa are both very high standard. The spa area is free to use from 10-2pm and have a really nice relaxing feel to it. Treatments look great but are extremely expensive (couples massages are £250+) which might be similar costs in other hotels in the area but does not need to be so high. Shame as we would use more if it was normal prices (I think £1 a minute on average is fair).

The south beach at the hotel is lovely and when the tide goes out you can walk to the nearby island. The beach isn’t private (none are on the Seychelles) but it feels like it is and you won’t see it crowded with a tonne of people. In fact the resort (huge and they say the biggest in the Indian Ocean) never feels crowded. It is the most perfect place to relax. Normally I take a few days to relax. Not here. Felt at home straight away and I think it is their attention to detail that makes this place special. There is always staff cleaning and clearing either gardens or rooms to keep everything looking perfect and they do a super job.

The weather so far is just perfect. Not too hot or humid like some places in Thailand or Maldives.

Getting from the airport to the hotel is about 35 mins in a car and I would recommend sorting this out before you arrive. We chose Danny L whom people on here have used before and he was really nice and funny (€50). Of course the hotel can pick you up too, just for a little more €.

We have not encountered any issues at all with mosquitoes, caterpillars or birds. In fact I suspect the hotel listens to what people say on here and tries to fix issues travellers have mentioned in the past. The smoking every night must keep down the bugs. There does seem a genuine desire to help you to have a truly magical stay and a great relaxing time at the Constance E.

If you want to know anything just ask me.

We will return for sure.

We are a family of 5 (2 adult and 3 children). It was our first time to Seychelles and we were not sure what to expect. Constance Ephelia was a random choice based on the information we obtained online.

From the time we reached the airport, we have been pampered , first by the concierge and then the warm and very friendly staff. We had booked two rooms and had requested to be located close to each other. However to our surprise and excitement , we were upgraded to an independent villa with a pool. the independent villa that was given to us was very spacious and it was located close to all the amenities the hotel offered. The hotel room service provided was very much up to the mark.

Exploring the hotel made us understand the immense space of the property and the different kind of activities that can be done within the property. There was a mountainous terrain suitable for rock climbing, private beach and a winding road to the top of a hill.

There were all sorts of activities such as rock climbing, snorkeling, deep sea diving and many more. The hotel had also equipped our villa with bicycles which also helped us move around the fairly large property.

We look forward to be visiting this resort once again and a thumps up.

Room Tip: villa with pool is great. The view from the presidential suite is amazing and should not miss.

This was our first visit to the Seychelles and to the Constance Ephelia. The purpose of our visit was our combined wedding and honeymoon.
We can honestly say our wedding was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations. Sincere thanks to all of the Constance Ephelia personnel that worked so hard to achieve this.

The Constance Ephelia is situated in breathtaking surroundings. We were located near to the south beach. Our accommodation was fantastic and had wonderful views of the mountains, pool complex and sea.

Restaurants were excellent; service, quality and menu choice.

We booked through Kuoni. The Kuoni representative Gary was very knowledgeable, professional, very helpful and always available.

We would highly recommend the Constance Ephelia and would to like to thank all personnel that helped to make our stay so special and forever memorable.

We will definitely be returning to the Constance Ephelia!!
