Merhaba, I was in the Seychelles for four days in September, considering to work there : I was indeed blown away by the beauty of the island of Mahe and some of it's beaches. The Seychelles are more natural, Mahe island is very hilly, very lush. Hotels there are small and no beaches are private, which is ok. If you are looking for a slightly cheaper holiday with more quality service, probably better and cheaper hotel food and more private beaches but a bit less 'couleur locale' then I would opto for Mauritius which, I am sure is beautiful as well. There are so many hotels in Mauritius that the prices, I am told, have gone down. The Seychelles are perfect for Honeymoons.
