seychelles/mauritius travel agents

We want to book a vacation to Mauritius and Seychelles. We've noticed that the prices listed on the hotel websites are much more expensive than what you can find through travel agents, but we don?t know who to use. Any agents/companies you'd recommend?
Thanks!

In addition to which hotels in particular that are of interest - if you've seen less expensive prices from travel agents, which agents?

What prices from websites vs. agents? Do the prices include aifare between islands in the Seychelles, transfers once on island, with or without meals, minimum stay at any hotel/island? There are a number of things you have to look at.

If you'd give us some idea of what you're looking at and difference in prices and what is or isn't included, we could assist.

We aren't looking at any specific hotels yet(I guess it depends on how much we can save by booking through an agent). We are looking for mid-high accomodations. A couple of websites we have seen are Mauritius/Seychelles Magic (USA) and Seychelles Travel (UK). We don't need air, so we are just looking at hotels and both of those sites seem to be able to help with that. We're just wondering if they are good to work with, or if we should look into using a different agent.

If Seychelles Magic and Seychelles (UK) are travel agents rather than the actual hotel website, then go for it.

You might, however, want to check with Masons Travel (Seychelles) and Seychelles Travel Services (think that's the name). Both are the major tour operators in the Seychelles and handle most of the day-trips people book. They also handle hotel reservations. When we visited, our bookings were handled by the latter and they did a fine job. However, we spent quite a bit of time while in the Seychelles with the manager of Masons whose mother-in-law was visiting from the States, and Masons seemed just as reputable.

Do ask questions and more questions of whomever you choose, also check that whomever accepts credit cards - some might want wire transfers as payment. That's the best I can do. Hope some of this works for you.
