Jamelah Beach Guest House
Ranked #20 of 49 Mahe Island B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 September 2012

It was really amazing vacation. We stayed at Jamelah Apartments for three weeks in August, 2012. It is a windy season however almost the whole vacation was sunny. The hotel is situated in the district Anse Aux Pins. In August the ocean in this region is not deep because of the riff and it is not very comfortable for swiming or snorkeling. However maximum it takes about half an hour to reach any beach of Mahe island by bus or even less if travel by car. It should be noted that shallow ocean has its own advantages. In the night you can walk away from the coast and see all the stars in the sky above your head. I think in its own way it is very romantic.

The environment of the apartments is very nice, the staff is very friendly, the manager Flory does her best to make your vacation easier. Particularly, she lent a snorkeling equipment for my wife, advised us the boatman who makes cheap excursions to the islands, bought us cheap tickets to Praslin and La Digue, helped us to buy frozen fish and recieve permission for the fresh one to take it to our place, advised us how to achieve places of interest, good beaches, cafes, discotheques, cheap taxi drivers and so on. She is very good in her business and her help is invaluable for us.

The water is a problem on Seychelles and there are days when there are no water at all in some places. I should say that in Jamelah Apartments there was no such a problem - we cooked and took a shower whenever we wanted to.

Once more - the environment is very friendly and relaxing - hotel is not big and you can get acquainted with all the neighbours - the garden is very nice - there are two dogs and four turtles who are very friendly too.

Concluding my review i have to say that Seychelles is a real Paradise and small hotel as Jamelah Apartments is the best choice for calm and not expensive vacation.

When we arrived there were only an impolite cleaning lady who just showed us the room. She did not even say hello to us. The room was very nice including aircon, balcony and a fully equiped kitchen. The fridgerator was big enough. Jamelah is located on the beach that is not very good for swimming.

The Anse Aux Pins area including the whole southern area of the Mahe is like "dead". Lots of hotels and restaurants are closed over 10 years ago and they still appear in the maps. Car rental is highly recommended because Mahe and distances are big. The hostess Jessica can arrange a cheap car rental. Streering wheel is on the right side so it's a bit difficult at the start but i got used to it in a day.

The breakfast was a disappointment including only coffee and bread. We bought fruits and yoghurt to complete the breakfast. We recommend to buy breakfast groceries on the market. Nearest little market is next to the street.

The garden is unclean. Five dogs were running free, so if you are afraid of dogs or have a little children, this is not for you. There are also three giant turtles that are living in dirt. The fence was also broken so they were also walking free. We felt sorry for them and gave the some fruit skin.

The Mahe was all in all a bit disappointment compared to Praslin and La Digue.
