Ocean Jewels is located in Amitie, Praslin island, on the Grande Anse beach which isn't really suited for swimming, being quite dirty (at least in May when I was staying). However, the hotel location was good, not far from a bus stop with buses going all around Praslin. Which means that for only 5 Seychelles Rupees (about 0.5$) you can travel anywhere, including the magnificent Anse Lazio and other beaches. Buses are available from early mornings till 6 PM and the time table isn't always followed, but usually you can catch a bus every half an hour or so.
The hotel rooms were very good and there's a lot of space both inside and at the balcony. There's a large bedroom, living room and kitchen with plenty of space, suitable for a long stay (which wasn't the case for me). So, it's probably a great place for a family vacation.
The managers and personnel are friendly and will help you with anything you need. There's also WiFi, both paid and free, with free being available in the yard between cottages. They can also provide transfers for a descent price, since taxi prices on Praslin (and everywhere on Seychelles for that matter) are ridiculous.
