Are the Seychelles overrated?

Jump to last reply

We have 5 nights at the end of our honeymoon in November (first half will be in Uganda, gorilla trekking at Bwindi) and are considering the Seychelles.

Is it worth it? The top of the line resorts seem insanely expensive, but have amenities that are hard to find at some of the cheaper places (such as a private plunge pool). Are they really worth the price tag? On tripadvisor I have read about bug problems and bird stench at North Island and Fregate.

We care about: (1) private villa with private plunge pool (2) being able to swim in the ocean and (3) the ability to take a day trip/picnic to a private beach (is this possible in Mahe?)

Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated!!
