What Past Guests Are Saying
Lovely stay in mahe
Very nice family. They pick us up from the airport, rent a car, give answers to 1.000 questions we had! If we had a problem they help. The house was very nice and with a big garden. All new, very silent and clean! The kitchen was full epuiped and we get a little welcome ( water, juice, milk, Bred, fruits, flowers) so we dont had to ga into the supermarket after arriving that was very very nive.
Jude make Curry and Fisch for us and we had to try severall seychells food (Breadfruit, Coconuts, Toddy) it was great.
If we come back we stay again with Jude!!!
Excellent value for your money!
Villa Reef Estate was a perfect place for our stay on Mahe Island
Jude Mein and his wife showed nothing but attention to detail, a warm welcome, helpfulness and friendliness.
Jude collected us from the airport and delivered us to our departure points for both of our stays. He has a wonderful knowledge of the Seychelles and gave us a good understanding of these beautiful islands.
The accommodation was exceptionally clean, spacious and well equipped. The apartment is in a lovely quiet garden setting. We really hope to go back there one day!

Dear Claudia& Mike
Thank you so much for taking the time to write the review and we were so happy to have both staying with us during your short stay on Mahe island
I am glad that I had the opportunity to drive you around the South part of the island and point out some of the beautiful spots of attraction, especially Cap Ternay beach where you take some photos!!
Don't forget you ate the special fruit call Breadfruit and drunk the toddy from the coco nut tree so you bond to come back some days. I am sure that you will recommend friends planning a holiday in the tropics.
Kind Regards Jude Glynis & Fly
Hospitality at its best!
My wife and I are quite the travelers and I can say that Jude is by far, the most hospitable host we've ever had! Jude is the man, what else can I say? This guy just went beyond hosting us, he treated us like part of his family. He made sure we had the best experience in Seychelles. We had a few hiccups at the beginning of our trip and Jude was all out willing to help - he would voluntarily offer! He had us taste special fruits, suggested activities we could do, given us local insight, and even arranged special rate for the car we rented.
After all our lovely activities, The Reef Palm was the perfect place to settle and enjoy a quiet night. The place was well equipped, very clean and spacious. It was airy, relaxing and there's even a garden that Jude himself maintains. We were treated with a welcome fruit basket, bread, milk and juice. Tea and coffee were also available in case you needed some morning boost. There are nearby stores as well and the neighborhood feels quiet and secured. We also ran out of clothes midway through our trip and it was easy breezy to wash and hang them - everything we needed was there! In the evenings, we would cook at the villa and we've even done a BBQ night with the Mein family!
We've had nothing but beautiful memories from our Seychelles trip and the Mein family was such a big part of it. It wasn't just a business for them, they truly understand what it's like to be a tourist and would provide what you need even before you ask for it. We highly recommend The Reef Palm. Thanks very much again Jude, Glynis and the rest of the Mein family! God bless you more and more!

We have had a wonderfull time in the seychelles and with Jude and his family on the Villa. Jude has made it possibel to go to La Digue for a night and he and his wife cooked real lovely and verry tastefull island food for us. It felt like a warm home. The accomodation is in a good location, the comfort was very good and we had every thing we needed in the appartment and the help and kindness from Jude and his wife. Warm and cold water, a good shower, a good, big bed, airco, the kitchen was good. When wevhad to go to the airport, there was no rush for checking out, we could stay as long as we needed. So, when you are looking for a good self service accomodation, go to the reef palm!

Relaxing stay at Villa Reef Estate with all amendities of a good
We enjoyed very much our stay at Villa Reef Estate. This cozy guesthouse is very comfortable, you feel you are in good hands and very welcome. The hosts are very amiable and cordially, they organized us a car rental and helped us whenever we needed help. They even arranged a romantic candle light dinner for us in their garden with delicous homemade food prepared by Jude´s wife. We can highly recommend this place.

Un nid douillet pas loin des plages paradisiaques de Mahe
Nous avons passé 5 jours très agréable à The Reef Palm. La maison est tout confort avec tout ce que vous aurez besoin pour passer un séjour sympathique à Mahé.
Reef Estate est un endroit bien placé pour découvrir l'île et notamment les belles plages du sud mais pour cela il vous faudra absolument une voiture (indispensable pour se balader à Mahe). Mr Mein peut s'occuper de trouver une voiture pour vous afin d'en profiter dès votre arrivée.
Rien à redire !

Thank you very for your review and glad that you had an enjoyable time during your stay in Seychelles especially at The Reef Palm.
Hope to welcome you again.
Beautiful location. Amazing family. Unforgettable holiday.
Where should I begin with this review. I had a wonderful stay here with Jude and his family. From the moment we started emailing them, it felt like we were talking to family. He organised our car hire at a very good rate before we even arrived. Once we arrived, he picked us up at the airport and took us to our amazing villa. Everything looks like it was bought yesterday. The appliances (washing machine, microwave, gas hob, fridge/freezer, AC etc) looked and performed like they were brand new. We had a lovely starter pack waiting for us in the fridge with milk, bread, fruit etc to get us started. The villa itself is meticulously maintained. Everything was clean, fresh and professional. Jude kindly offered to find out about services and tailored his advice to our personal needs. The villa is in the expansive back garden of his home. Growing in his garden were big avocados, mangoes, aubergines, chillis and other fruits and vegetables which we were able to use in our cooking. Let's not also forget Glynis, Jude's wife, who also gave us a fantastic welcome and was at hand to offer help and advice when needed.
There's not much else to say. We had an amazing experience and sampled some of the best beaches in the world. The family even organised a lavish Creole meal on the last night of our stay. This is beyond what even family might provide! I really couldn't recommend this place more highly. Thanks again Jude!

Excellent stay at Villa Reef Estate
We are a couple and stayed for 4 days at the Villa Reef Estate. The stay was really nice and so is the owner Jude Mein.
Upon arriving, Jude was there to welcome us and arranged for our rent a car at the airport itself.
He explained everything we had available and gave a quick tour of the place.The room and living area were all clean and very tastefully decorated. All appliances were well maintained and in most cases brand new. There is a nice collection of Dvd's and books, to take you through an odd rainy day on this isle.We also had a starter pack, which was generously portioned with fresh fruits, milk, bread.The surrounding garden is peaceful and well maintained. Though the house in in the backyard of Jude's family home, we had our privacy and quite.
Jude is extremely resourceful and helped us to organize our tickets for Island hopping and also booked a scuba dive in matter of minutes. He gave us some good tips on places to visit and explore on the island.
My thanks again to Jude for making our short stay in Seychelles such an enjoyable. He knew how to really make you feel at home, and if you need anything it is like asking a family member. Congratulations from the heart, you were fantastic.

Perfect tropical getaway with generous hosts
We had an amazing 2-week holiday in Mahe and the Reef Palm. We are happy that we chose Villa Reef Palm, it really was everything we wished for. Spacious for 2 people, nice decoration and well equipped. Free Wlan, washing machine, air-con, kitchen.. Surrounded by a lush garden. So clean and peaceful, it was a true paradise and we had a relaxing holiday.
The owner Jude is helpful and friendly, he makes sure your stay is carefree. We appreciated all the help and tips we got from him and his lovely family. Also getting to know the local way of living, tasting Creole foods and discussing about daily news.. We felt welcomed and all the hospitality we received was heart-warming!
We recommend to rent a car - it is so easy to drive around the island and enjoy beautiful views. With Jude's help renting a car has never been easier.
We certainly will come back to Reef Palm the next time visiting Mahe and highly recommend it to everyone else.
Response from JTMein - 03/12/2013
Thank you so much for taking the time to express how you enjoyed your stay at The Reef Palm. It was a pleasure to have you both during the 2 weeks vacation coming all the way from Finland. Look forward to welcome you or any of friends coming to this part of the world.
Cheers to you
Jude, Glynis and family
Everything you look for and more!
We stayed at Villa Reef Estate during the festive break and had a wonderful stay!
The owner Jude starts by picking you up personally at the airport (located only 5 min away) and from then on he will do everything to make sure you are having a lovely stay in Seychelles! Nothing is too much and Jude and his family always have the nicest attentions (fresh avocados from the garden, coconuts, breadfruit, birthday celebrations...).
The villa is lovely, clean and well equipped in a beautiful big garden. The location is very good, close to the airport, the beautiful beach of anse Royale and Victoria.
But above all, it's really Jude and his family who will make your stay unforgettable. Jude is also very well connected and can help you with renting a car and things like that, all delivered at your door step!
I cannot recommend enough Villa Reef Estate and I will certainly go back!
Jude & Glynis, thank you again for your warm welcome, you are wonderful people!

Haven in Eden
The Reef Palm Self Catering Resort was a home away from home. It was clean, luxurious and overlooks the sea. It may be self catering but watch out for the owner's wife's cooking! They were such a lovely and kind family. They made sacrifices to ensure we had a mmemorable stay, and it was. I will surely be back in Seychelles and will not trade a stay here for Hilton! Expect a family BBQ nite before you leave, the owner stocks vintage drinks!
Home away from Home
The Reef Palm is located just 5 minutes from the airport with a lovely well maintained green property within a quiet estate. The room is tastefully decorated with clean and dazzling Jacuzzi. The most astounding part of the holiday were the hosts, Jude Mein and his family; beautiful well cultured family. Gynlis is an excellent cook; her breakfasts of one's choice are extraordinary. I always looked forward to the next meal time with her very healthy menu. It took my friend and I less than one hour to connect with Mein's family and we were treated like family even as we have returned to our home country in Nigeria.
This wonderful family, Jude, Gynlis, Alex, Steph and sweet aria made sure we connected with the Island mostly historically which was amazing and very relaxing for me. We all had a family barbecue time out the night before our departure sponsored by Jude and it was so good and helped us get all we wanted ready before our departure.
If anyone wants to connect with a family away from home, please head to the Seychelles at the Reef Palm Guest house managed by Jude Mein for a lovely time. I would surely come back but this time with more friends and family.
Love and miss you guys a lot.

So come again and look forward to see. Thanks so much
