We stayed here for 6 nights as part of our island hopping trip to the Seychelles and loved every minute. We arrived in Praslin on the ferry from Mahe and had arranged to hire a car for the duration of our stay on Praslin. Ocean Jewels resort was easy to find and in a great location with a number of restaurants in the vicinity. Accommodation was spacious and has everything you need for a great stay. Brenda and paul made us feel really welcome and arranged a trip to Curieuse island which was one of the highlights of our trip. Would love to stay again and would definitely recommend.

A great place to be, perfectly located to the airport, really friendly staff and managers made our stay really pleasant. The houses are perfectly located by the beach, and very spacious. The beach itself is nice and the sunsets are gorgeous, for bathing it´s not a thrill, but taking the local bus to explore Anse Georgette (Brenda gave the guards at Constance Lemuria a call ahead) and Anse Lazio nearby is the best on Praslin. Watch out for the mosquitos during the evenings, which caused one of the few downsides with Ocean Jewels Resort; while we had to close the doors to keep the mosquitos away, it really got hot on the ground floor, since there is no AC there, only in the bedrooms. A small investment with mosquitonets in front of the doors should solve that small little problem.

Room Tip: We choosed a beachfront house, further away from the street, we didn´t regret that.

The hotel was clean, big, with a great bbq and what it is more important: close to en empty beach. That beautiful beach is not crowed at all; you can walk alone for kilometers except for one or two fishermen.

By the way, Paul and the rest of the team were so nice and helped us with everything we needed.

Of course I reccomend this hotel.

We spent 6 days at Ocean Jewels Resort. We felt almost like at home. Paul is very warm-hearted and ready to help. We asked him for a car hiring service in the afternoon and the car was ready to use in the evening. We chose a villa for us two although an apartment is big enough as well. Very clean and comfortable. From our villa we could see the ocean. We heard that all these four houses were originally built as home not as guest houses, which explains the comfort Ocean Jewels offers. The best thing for me is the beach, only 20 meters away, though might not be the most beautiful one. The sand is so fine that when it is dry you can blow it off your hand like white flour. I swam almost every morning and evening while enjoying the sunrise and sunset. By the way, at the time of our stay we could see great sunset.

Room Tip: For daily shopping, there are two small stores very close to the resort. Only they don't have many choices for fresh foods. There are bigger supermarkets in the town, but you have to walk like at least 20 min to get there. So a car might make the stay more comfortable.

We stayed here with our 2 kids (1 and 4 years) for 1 week in September 2013 and we really loved it. The (family) villa was great, wow what a space and a great ocean view from the terrace and balcony. We really enjoyed the great hospitality of Paul and Brenda and both their kids. Restaurants and supermarkets can easliy be reached by foot although you need a car or a bus to see the beautiful beaches (anse Lazio, anse Georgette). For a dive in the pool we visited the "neighbours". This was the best accomodation we stayed in during our 3 weeks Seychelles trip. Dear Paul and Brenda we are really looking forward to get back to this great place in the near future. Petra, Paul and kids.
