Trip to SeychellesHad a wonderful trip to Seychelles. The local travel agency 7South provided great service at every step and helped with planning excursions. Coco De Mer hotel in praslin was extremely beautiful.
Trip to SeychellesThe service of travel triangle can be improved. I booked this trip from dream travels . I have booked a different hotel and I have been told that not the same hotel can be given as it's already been sold out. This thing is been told to me after making my second installment. I have given very few options to choose between the hotels and none were matching to the criteria I opted for. The hotel that has been allotted to me was not on the road it was very much inside from the main road I had to spend so much of money from hotel to main road. The services at the hotel L'archipel were not great ..we have been asked to pay 1000 rs for reheating of the food as tray charges apart. Everything was very expensive at Le archipel . A travel adopter that generally given by the hotel for free during the stay we have been asked to buy from the reception for 2500 rs.. As per the iternary the pick up from the hotel was at 2pm but hotel guys told us to vacate the room by 10 am. When I tried reaching out the travel triangle agent for that they said that it is upto hotel discretion and they generally allow late check out and they said they have not checked with hotel before booking the ferry tickets when I asked dream travels to change the timings of the ferry tickets so that we can reach Mahe early as late check out is not allowed here , dream travels said they can't change the tickets now. We have to wait for 5 hrs because of dream travels assumptions thinking late check out is allowed. I am very much disappointed by the services of travel triangle and dream travels and will think twice before making in booking with you. You offer some thing and then you book something . I don't find commitment of words and customer service was extremely poor. Please take care of above feedback seriously so that others won't get suffered by the your services and attitude. We have made booking through dream travels thinking that they will take care of each and every thing but unfortunately there was a huge difference in their attitude before and after the booking.
