I visited Seychelles for 5 days for my honeymoon and stayed for all 5 days at Cap Jean Marie. The first thing that strikes you once you reach it is that the place is more beautiful than the pictures. A picture is worth 1000 words , so the pics for this place speak everything.
The Chalets are very tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you could need. The kitchen is fully equipped and you can buy all the groceries at the near by stores where Terry will drive you any time you want. And right outside your chalet (less than 50 m) is GODs swimming pool with water so clear that you can actually see everything when it is a little calm. Its almost a private beach where you can go for a swim any time of the day and lie down at night and see so many stars , that you would not have seen in your whole life. The only thing you hear is the waves crashing at your feet and the wind . The place is highly recommended for everyone who wants to do nothing and just relax. (Man, I miss that peace :( )
And now for the pain points although not that painful is that place is quite far from the main Market of the Praslin but very near to the airport. But the buses stop very near to the place and Moreover Terry will drop and Pick you up even if you want to use the bus to visit Praslin. The Ferry is at the other end of the island but the hosts will make sure that you always get there before time at any time of the day.
In the end, the place is just simply perfect and is highly recommended to everyone.
Thanks a lot Terry and his whole family for making our trip the most memorable one. And we hope that we visit you again.
