Reasons for trip

We booked with Seyexclusive because they not only were the cheapest we could find for an all inclusive Seychelles holiday, they were professional and extremely helpful. They found us Cerf Island Resort. There are not many all inclusive holidays in the Seychelles and trust me, if you like a drink then definitely book all inclusive. There were holiday makers staying at Cerf Island and when we looked at the cost of soft, alcoholic drinks, snacks, breakfasts, lunches and dinners we knew we had chose the right package. We met a couple who spent as much as we had on our whole holiday in a week after hydrating and feeding themselves even though they did not drink! We went over to Mahe on a boat and had a day sightseeing. There is not much to do really but you can snorkel, swim, canoe and relax. The lodges are not for the faint hearted however – we had 98 steps up to ours! You feel as if you are in a jungle all alone as they are surrounded by vegetation and you can barely see the next lodge. There is a large bedroom with tv, settee, chair, coffee table and fridge. There is a balcony outside with sunbeds (although the sun never made it through the dense vegetation) with sunbeds, chairs and table. There is a dressing area off the partially covered bathroom with jack and jill sinks, separate wc, double bath which took simply ages to fill (there are lodges with jacuzzi double baths) and an outdoor shower which was magical to shower while watching the stars overhead. The rooms were cleaned every day and the sheets and towels of excellent quality. There is a spa but not cheap. There is an infinity pool and a large swimming pool right next to a very very tiny beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The food was excellent, buffet breakfast and lunch when the number of tourists rose above a certain level. An al a carte breakfast and lunch menu when numbers dwindled. There was themed evening which was really delightful each week. You could at extra cost have dinner on the beach but as we had already done ‘Shirley Valentine complete with champers and lobster’ on a beach in the Maldvies we did not do this. We walked up to the top of the island to the helipad and the views were fantastic, well worth the walk. The staff were really lovely and helpful. There are lots of places in the world to visit and we said we would venture back to the Seychelles when we have visited all the other places on our bucket list. Enjoy.
