My boyfriend and I stayed in Coral Strand Smart Choice for 9 days. The hotel is oldish, but it's good value for the money. The rooms are on the smaller side, but the bed is very comfortable and I slept like a baby. They clean it every day and I haven't seen any bugs. There was an excellent choice of food for breakfast and dinner, so you cannot stay hungry even if you are really picky. Lots of fresh fish every day, grilled on the spot. The beach is absolutely amazing, long and wide, soft sand, though no fish or corals, so don't count on snorkeling. Lots of sunbeds, but no sun umbrellas on the beach and after 12:00PM there's no shade at all, so this could be a problem. The three restaurants which are a part of the hotel are good, with decent selection.
The staff: all staff at the reception are EXTREMELY friendly, helpful, nice and that was the best part of our staying there. Especially Chamara, Stella, Damir, Valerii, and all the ladies at the reception desk. Some people working as waiters are a bit slower, but hey - that's Africa :) They made our staying memorable.
Very important information (which has nothing to with the hotel): if you want to go on an excursion to La Digue and Praslin - book at the hotel!!! It is a bit more expensive, but it is trusted and safe. I wanted to 'help out' the local agencies, offering tours at the quay and ended up not going, as they cancelled our trip three times, blaming the weather, which I don't believe was the right reason. In order to get our deposit back, I had to argue with the lady who took my money and almost called the police. They are scammers and because of them, we did not get to see the two other islands. Although the hotel had nothing to do with them, the hotel staff helped me out when I called those scammers to complain. They did not have to do this, but they did.
Also, rent a car and see other parts of Mahe, especially Anse Royal Beach and Baie Lazare, for super cool waves experience. If you want a reliable rent-a-car agency, talk to wonderful Stella from the reception. She can recommend a cool company, which does not take any deposit and they lady who works there is also very helpful.
All in all, staying at Coral Strand was great, due to the wonderful staff, beautiful beach and mesmerizing sunsets.
Since you are not paying the Hilton, or Kempinsky prices, do not expect that standards. This hotel is good value for money and stop expecting a five star luxurious hotel when you don't pay that price.

The hotel is excellent choice for anyone, employees are very polite and will help you about any your need, the hotel restourant is also very nice, and the hotel is on the most beautiful beach on the island so you don’t need to go anywhere unless you don’t want to, I enjoyed my stay here.

Hotel showing its age. Helpful & pleasant staff though not the quickest. Small busy pool area as was the beach front. More suited to Benidorm than Seychelles. Having said that the Hotel is well placed for a few good restaurants & local life.
