Response from Paul R, Owner at Ocean Jewels Resort
Responded 6 Sep 2018
Dear Emanuela & Serpa, Let me begin by thanking you for posting your comment on almost every online public review site known to mankind. It's incredible the lengths that some people will go to make public their dissatisfaction and the attempts to tarnish someone's business. I will do my best to reply to your comments in a step by step manner to clarify certain matters as I feel that you have unfairly criticized and blamed Ocean Jewels Resort, it's staff and me for the initial events that led to your disappointing honeymoon : 1. Ocean Jewels Resort had nothing to do with your delayed arrival, We do not own or have shares in the airline that could not deliver on your travel arrangements. We can not control the weather and maybe you should consider the consequences that if the airline had flown during a very bad storm and the plane crashed, then you would not be hear today to tell your wonderful story. Maybe you should be giving praise to our brave pilots for saving the life of your wife and yourself!! 2. As I mentioned to you, travel insurance is something you should consider for next time as that would be your only recourse in a refund for the lost night. No hotel in the world would refund you for your travel delays. Do some research on this before blaming us and expecting me to pay for a 3rd parties non delivery. 3. Breakfast at Ocean Jewels is made fresh daily and is customized for each individual guest. The order is taken the day of arrival in order for us to prepare and have the correct ingredients. This is a small Island and we do not have the luxury of your wonderful markets at your door step. Since you did not arrive the day scheduled, your desired choices were not known to us and therefore we required time to prepare. 4. All of our 24 bicycles are all brand new, they had all arrived a week prior to your arrival. Yes a little adjustment was required as they were assembled a few days prior, this is why our staff had asked you to collect from the shop as the ones at Ocean Jewels were not ready for use. We did not expect you to bring back both bicycles to the property by yourself, you wanted to be the hero! 5. We do our best to assist all of our guests with car rental, excursions and any other requests. You are also free to make your own reservations for any other service, excursions or car rentals at your cost. We deal with reputable and reliable companies for the best prices available to you. August is peak season in Seychelles and with limited cars available, Sophia was able to find you a vehicle at a very short notice after making several phone calls at our cost. In 2 days a lot can change, so you finding another car after 2 days just says it all. 6. For readers that do not know Praslin, allow me to clarify the geographical challenge. Ocean Jewels is situated on the Southern coast of Grand Anse, almost all of the excursions to neighboring islands takes place on the northern parts of the island, naturally excursions available on our side of the island will be slightly higher than those closest as there is great distances to cover, fuel costs increase with increase in travel time. We do not have any control on these fixed costs nor do we have control over what boat operators charge, again I would like to repeat that you are free to do some homework and find your own excursions suited to your budget. On a final note - I was dealing with the death of my sister and trying frantically to make travel plans for my family, so for that I'm very sorry that my sister decided to pass away during your honeymoon. Your comments are noted and where we can improve, we will to ensure that mistakes are never repeated but in my 20 years in the hospitality industry I have learnt a lot about human behavior, this review confirms that there are some people you will never be able to please no matter what you do.

Convenience apartments close to the airport, nothing else. The area is not beautiful and the beach one of the worst. The apartments has a seedy decoration, you must pay for everything (bikes, wifi, etc.). Usually the guest houses o simple apartments like that offer bikes for

Loved everything about it. The house was lovely and the beach AMAZING! It felt like we had the beach to our selfs. I loved this beach much more than the "famous" ones because of the calm water (perfect for children). You can easily walk to a cheap take away place if you get

We stayed here for four nights to precede an organised tour starting in Mahe, so that we could take the opportunity of experiencing another of the Seychelle Islands while we were there. It was a good choice. The domestic flight service, Air Seychelles, was very efficient and

"Try for beachfront"
"We had sea front villa so very quiet and view amazing - definitely chose sea front!"
"The seas facing villas were more private than the road facing apartments so if your budget can stretch, I recommend booking a villa"
"Ask for a sea facing room near the beach. Bit noisy in the rooms near the main road. Wifi signal was not very strong in the rooms neither. Had to sit out on the steps nearer the office to get a stronger signal. Get up early and walk the long beach. So quiet and not many people around."
