Far Cry

A travel blog entry by svefredrik


Allting klaffade som ett schweitziskt urverk fram till Immigrations på Mahe. Alla flyg gick och kom fram precis enligt klockan. Inget askmoln, och inget bagage förlorat. Problemet med Immigrations var mitt eget fel, det var dumt att inte boka resan vidare från Mahe. Nåja det löstes hyfsat smidigt genom att jag bokade en returbiljett till London som …

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 ...

Departure for Praslin

A travel blog entry by couillard


... we got to see a part of Praslin that we had not visited. We are flying back to Mahe at 12:00 and staying at Daniella's Bungalows closer to Beau Vallon. We have another taxi (Francis) that is waiting for us and he will also take us to the airport in the morning for Joberg. We had made arrangements with him when we were at Bliss Hotel in ...

... home. Sorry I missed your Skypes... Today we went snorkelling from the beach, tomorrow, we are off to do some scuba diving with Octopus Divers in Praslin, departure at 9:00 AM. The sand on the beach here is so fine, I might even make a video of it just to show ...

Anse Volbert, Praslin

A travel blog entry by couillard


... While I was taking pictures of the site I met a professional photographer named Paul Turcott and it turns out he is French Canadian (from Sorel) and living here in Praslin. He gave us some great advice as well as the name of a friend that could take us to Cousin island at a reasonable ...

    The Barbarons...


    Overall you can't really fault the Barbarons. The hotel has nice grounds and gardens.

    Un hotel de segunda categoría


    Las habitaciones son agradables, la playa es muy bonita. No dejes los zapatos fuera, ya que a mi me robaron las zapatillas de deporte. En el bar vi servir restos de cerveza en dos ocasiones, seguido por un vaso sucio. Bebe sólo botellas de cerveza y fíjate que las abran delante de ti, ya que guardan los restos de cerveza en la nevera. No elijas el régimen de cama y desayuno, ya que tienes que pagar 80 euros + para comer o cenar. Pide el desayuno en la habitación por 6 euros, es más agradable que el servicio malo del hotel por la mañana. El servicio es lento, pero la gente es amable. El suelo resbala dentro del hotel, los precios del bar son altos, pero si caminas unos cien o doscientos metros fuera hacia la izquierda puedes beber cerveza por un tercio del precio. Ten cuidado con los precios de los taxis, paga solo 100 rupias Seychelles, y no des propinas- Es el precio a Victoria, a unos 20 minutos. La isla es preciosa y volvería a otro hotel más elegante, pero sin duda no volvería al Le Meridien Barbarons, muy malo. Además todavía estoy esperando a que me devuelvan mis zapatillas de deporte robadas.

    Zweitklassiges Hotel


    Die Zimmer sind angenehm, der Strand sehr schön. Lassen Sie Ihre Schuhe nicht vor der Tür, da mir meine Turnschuhe gestohlen wurden. Die Bar servierte zweimal abgestandenes Bier und dann ein Getränk in einem schmutzigen Glas. Besser nur Flaschenbier und dabei zuschauen, wenn die Flaschen geöffnet werden. Buchen Sie nicht Übernachtung mit Frühstück, da Sie 80 Euro + für Ihr Mittagessen zahlen müssen.

    Stunning Seychelles


    We had a 3 week Honeymoon to the Seychelles in June 2006, we stayed for 9 days at the Le Meridien Babarons, in a superior room. We stayed on both Mahe and Praslin but also went on a number of day trips to other islands.

    2nd Rate Hotel


    The rooms are plesant, the beach very nice. Donot leave shoes outside as I had my running shoes stolen.

    Give this one a miss


    As most people arrive early in the morning you get a morning after the night before view of this atrociously decorated hotel. You are greeted with a cold flannel and then left to wait in very uncomfortable chairs. We wandered around the site whilst waiting for our room to be ready. The general feeling is of a posh Butlin's ( for those of you from the UK) More like a teen summer camp than a 4 star hotel. We booked the "Ocean View Room" which means you are upstairs above the "Pool View Rooms" and you have a balcony which is great because you have a view of the cove which is beautiful. The rooms are adequate and the bathrooms clean and modern. However the bath requires a step (supplied) to get into, it is deep and well set back from the room and as you have to negotiate the slippery marble surround, it could be dangerous for the less able. The toilet although clean smelt.The room was always clean and after the first day tea and coffee was always supplied. The mini bar prices are astronomical and we quickly found a small shop ( turn left out of the hotel) about 2 minutes away where you can buy soft drinks at about 20% of the hotel prices. Everything is priced in Euros or they will take dollars. This seems to be a government requirement. The hotel will not take Seychelle Rupees although the taxi and other shops do. So do take other currency with you as the speed banks take their cut and if you change money at the hotel they take another 5% (Government tax).

    A hotel struggling to find its way!


    On arrival the hotel looks smart, but the decor and design are somewhat dated (think Austin Powers film set!). Maybe the designer was seeking a retro look - it doesn't sit well in a tropical location.

    Great Hoilday ..............but


    First and lasting Impression.

    Very disappointing


    Myself and my sister are currently at this hotel. The photos and description on the hotel's website, over-state everything about this property.
