Dealing with an automobile repair shop

A travel blog entry by leadjeff19

... you've got a body shop whereby the owner actually does a a large amount of the repair himself, that's a great sign, because he acually has his own hand in the job and that he will know what's going on. This particular body shop owner proceeded to say of the fact that the major cost factor for customers relates to the fee for labor. The hourly cost is an important variable which can really accumulate fast. Body shops use reference guides ...

Beau Vallon Beach, Mahe

Today we almost rented a car but did not like the fine print on the contract. Francois spotted a problem with the insurance clause. No where was it indicated that we paid extra for an insurance protection and he wanted us to sign that we refused protection. So we cancelled the car, said we were not interested, and hopped on the bus to go to Beau Vallon Beach for the day. We found a nice place under the shade of a tree and took turns going into ...

Middle of a Barracuda Vortex

... Yep. Stork Perch was a ways off the shore so seemed like we were speeding in the boat a long way. Over the side finally and into the water.

I am following Adam and he goes underneath a ledge and through a small rock tunnel. I follow him and my hubby goes over the top instead. When I am halfway through the tunnel, Adam is already out and has turned around to gesture to me to hurry up. ...

    MIND BLOWING TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE

    Reviewed Sep 10, 2012
    by (1 review) , United Arab Emirates Flag of United Arab Emirates

    We stayed at the 2 Bedroom Beach front villa. We were 3 adults (all women) and 2 children. The property is beautiful, but on the second night, someone broke into our villa and stole few of our belongings and tried to get into one of the rooms, luckily the room was locked from inside.

    We complained to the management early next morning and they did not want to accept something like this could happen. Half heartedly they called the secuirty manager and he said they can't see any foot steps in the sand and could not find any proof of anyone coming in to the villa, so we said we did not want to stay there cause we are only women and kids and they did not bother to make us feel safe or apologetic or give us solution to the problem, just plain denial... their reply to us wanting to leave was if you need help packing, the butler will be glad to do so.

    Guess, they knew it was prepaid package and they already had their money and they refused to refund the unstayed nights, so far them their money is made, but for us our security comes first so we left... last time we step foot in a Banyan Tree property. TERRIBLE !!!!

    So we checked out and then checked in to Constance Ephelia, and what an EXPERIENCE that was. The service was MIND BLOWING...!!
    They heard about our experience at Banyan Tree, they were shocked at the lack of empathy and service and they made sure rest of our holiday was not ruined because of the stay at Banyan Tree. They went out of their way to serve/please us, organised complimentary dinners etc..made us feel wanted, cared for and secure. NO was never an answer from them, any request was a YES. Beautiful property and outstanding service. A DEFINITE MUST STAY !!

    AFTER THIS WE ALL ARE A FAN OF CONSTANCE RESORTS.......

    Historical Traveler Reviews Banyan Tree Seychelles Mahe Island

    Loved banyan tree

    from

    just got back from the Seychelles with my husband. We had a wonderful time, and the Banyan Tree is just fab - geat views, great service and lovely people. A great geta-way if you just want to relax, read or laze by the pool. We went to Victoris for a day trip, quite dissapointing really! Be ware of bugs getting into your room at the resort though!

    Honeymoon Paradise??

    from

    My wife and I honeymooned at the Banyan Tree for 10 nights starting on July 11th 2005.

    Loved it!

    from

    This was the best hotel experience I have ever had - granted I was on my honeymoon so perhaps that had something to do with it. But WOW! This was really a beautiful location, the beachside suite was just gorgeous, and everything was just perfect. Well, maybe the food wasn't excellent, but it was very good (just a little too much of the same thing - mainly thai). I highly recommend this hotel & the Seychelles in general. Try the couples massage at the spa. Expensive but so worth it!

    Disappointing Service

    from

    Having read reviews on Travelocity of the Banyan Tree and had personal recommendations I was expecting great things. Sadly, I was disappointed. This is a beautiful hotel on a stunning beach with an excellent standard of accomodation. The big negative, which we were not expecting, was the poor service.

    Paradise

    from

    We have just returned from our honeymoon and spent the first week at this FANTASTIC hotel. Thw whole experience from the moment we arrived until we left was magnificent. We have been fortunate to stay in some nice hotels but what stood out for us was the friendly and accommodating staff. The hotel is in a beautiful location and we have never experienced such incredible service before.

    Short but very sweet

    from

    My wife and I have just returned from a short seven night stay at the Banyan Tree, and what a fantastic experience it was, our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

    The Best!!!

    from

    This is without doubt the best hotel experience I have ever had and we have been fortunate enough to visit some of the world's best..

    From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff - if you ever get a chance to stay here, take it - I promise you will never regret it.

    Loved it on the beach

    from

    Wow a great experience so many good things and just a couple of small niggles. I agree with one of the previous reviews the Hotel and pool area wonderful , the service excellent . The only bad thing is the variation between the hillside rooms and the beach . The beach rooms are amazing although as asome of the other guest remarkes the wilderness garden to the front was strange. however the beach and bay are wonderful.

    The hilltop villas are smaller but do suffer as others wrote of insects if you are not careful or actually if you are careful.

    Overall though a magnificent hotel

    Just returned on a compnay sponsored trip

    from

    I think the guy who reviewed this fantastic resort summed it all up really.

    10/10 to the staff no 5* cheesiness here, the staff genuinely love working here, if you want a dosage of ambience and tranquility, this is your place.

    Even the fussiest of people will find it tricky to pick holes in the Banyan Tree, flawless.

    By the way a word of warning to the wise, do not change your money into the local currency as none of the hotels accept it!

    Enjoy!

    A taste of paradise

    from

    A white beach. A picture postcard sea. The constant roar of breaking waves. Perfect service and small enough for you to feel at home. These are some of the snapshots we carry back from the Seychelles (Oct 2004). In fact, I was won over from the moment the taxi door opened, after a journey from hell when Kurt the assistant manager welcomed us by name and took us inside for a hot towel and iced tea.
