“Excellent family holiday”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2010

We have just come back from the beautiful islands of the Seychelles and spent our holiday staying at the Oceans Jewel Resort on Praslin island. It was our first time there and prior to our stay, we spent months deciding which island to stay on and most importantly, which resort to choose. We were recommended Oceans Jewel by friends who had stayed there previously and we were not dissapointed. The resort is perfectly located right next to the beach and ideal especially when travelling with kids and if you decide not to rent a car to travel to other beaches on the island. Watching the sunset every evening direct from our balcony was just an incredible experience. We stayed in a family chalet which was extremely spacious, had 2 seperate rooms and a large living area. We absolutely loved it and didn't feel cramped as you would normally feel in a small hotel room. Our kids had all the space in the world to run around in and out. The chalet was very beautiful, very clean and very comfortable. There is a fully equipped kitchen - which was ideal for us to make our own food when not dining out. The island is so small that it is accessible to all the local shops for food shopping for the kitchen. The staff made us feel very welcomed, were very friendly, polite and helpful and always remembered our names. We were not dissapointed in opting for this small intimate resort rather than a 5-star hotel. We had an amazing time as a family there and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for tranquility, spend time as a family and prefer not to be lost in a big hotel with lots of people around. Best of all, it's fantastic value for money, especially as we didn't want to spend ridiculous amounts of money on luxurious hotels, considering the amount of time you spend visiting the other neighbouring islands during the day.
