I'd like to warn all the travellers planning to stay in Rosemary's at Anse Volbert (Cote d'Or) as we had a terrible experience there.
We booked a double room there 3 weeks before our arrival by phone (after a previous email exchange). When we actually arrived at the front gate, exhausted after a long overnight flight from Europe and further travel from Mahe to Praslin, we were met by a young man (son of the owner, we were told later), who told us there is no room! That they are overbooked and that this happens even in Hilton sometimes! Very nasty suprise.
I admit things like this happen, but usually people are not turned away waiting on the street at the front gate and without a slightest appology or care!
If it wasn't for the taxi driver, who drove us there, we would be lost. He called an alternative B&B, negotiated the price for us, so we paid the same what we were expecting to pay at Rosemary's and on the top of everything he drove us to the new place! Practically he saved our holiday, great thanks to him...
During the 20 minute nightmare in front of Rosemary's main gate nobody from the guesthouse staff showed slightest regret for what happened with the overbooking. Nobody from the staff helped us or even tried to find alternative accommodation. Only the woman who runs or owns the place kept shouting angrily at the young guy in Creole, so we figured out this was not the first time booking were messed up! What a disaster! Don't stay there.
