Hi Karen

Great choice of hotel, Coco De Mer is a lovely, friendly property run by one of the best management teams in Seychelles. The seas should be nice and calm at that time of year so you'll get in some great snorkelling.

Food and drinks are not cheap in Seychelles, say in relation to a third world country, but are priced accurately against western Europe expectations. Coco De Mer is a good value choice, but you should expect to pay say £5 for a beer and a reasonable amount for a bottle of wine.

If you want a tipple in the evening buy yourself a nice box of wine or a couple of bottles of spirits and take them with you. There are no restrictions on bringing in alcohol, unlike Maldives so you'll be fine.

Remember to take a trip over to La Digue when you're on Praslin!
