Where to stay and typical drinks prices

Hi we are looking at booking a 12 night stay in the seychelles for sept/oct, can anyone help with these questions.

Thinking of splitting our time between two resorts, is this a good idea?

We are married couple of 30, like picture post card beaches and snorkelling. Relaxed dinning with good quality food and a bottle of wine or two!

Our choices are Coco de mer, Constance Lemuria, constance Ephelia and Labriz, any thoughts on which 2 would suit us

What are typical drinks prices? Beer, wine, cocktails and soft drinks

Lots of questions any help much appreciated

Splitting your stay is a great idea. 5/6 nights on two islands is perfect. I can't advise on the hotels as we always go self catering. Drink prices in hotels are quite high. I remember paying about 8 quid for a g&t at la reserve on praslin. Drink prices at restaurants outside hotels are less and you can buy booze in a local shop at a reasonable price. I'd advise taking a bottle or two of your favourite tipple for drinks on your terrace as well.

Food will be a good standard in the hotels you mention, mostly international standard hotel fare. You won't find food to match the best you might find in London or Paris say, generally outside of hotels food is more simple, but there some lovely restaurants about as well.

Hi there

OK, my last trip to Seychelles gave me yet more insight into the fineries of some of the new and existing Seychelles properties.

The most exciting discovery on this visit was the outstanding attitude of the management of Coco De Mer and their view on how drinks prices should be levied to clients, specifically that they want their guests to be able to have that glass or two of wine, to have a lunchtime beer etc and not worry that the drinks bill at the end will not be like a hammer blow.

So, in essence, my answer to your question is fairly straight forward:

7 nights Coco De Mer at the beginning and then 5 nights at Ephelia at the end. Coco will be a totally chilled, lovely experience with some lovely snorkelling and of course, wonderful beaches, plus you can take a couple of fantastic day trips over to La Digue and maybe Curieuse.

The drinks prices are not quite so keen at Ephelia but, you will love the scale of the place which will allow for more socialising!

I know that sounds very specific, but I reckon it's the perfect ticket for your particular criteria.

I would also take a look at some other places like La Reserve on Praslin, Domaine L'Orangerie on La Digue and maybe somewhere like Denis Island, drinks can be expensive there but it is a very relaxed, luxurious place to stay with excellent food and everyone's so friendly there and its perfect for couples.

I would also speak to a specialist travel agent (Seychelles Travel, Seyexclusive, Elite) you might find some offers for that time of year, and they get really good prices.
