If you visit Stonetown, you can take 1-2 hours to pay a visit to the Prison Island and get to see the big turtles. Not very exciting and stunning.

Interesting visit to see the giant tortoises. The beach is also okay, but I enjoyed the boat ride over there the most.

Not very exciting but must say the view is beautiful. A a previous reviewer said it’s badical a hotel now with giant turtles from The Seychelles- this is the most interesting thing about it. Our guide was bad which may have contributed to the overall bad experience. He was a 20 something local who was arrogant, disinterested, in his cell phone and bored.
We paid $100 USD for a combo tour of a spice farm, reserve with monkeys, Stonetown ( interesting) and Prison Island.
Way to much $$$. Wish I had known about the Cheetah Rescue - would have loved that!!!
