We stayed unexpectedly at the Le Meridien Fisherman's Cove at the end of September 2008. We had planned to go to Mauritius for a week long holiday, but due to visa problems at the airport had to change our entire trip in a matter of about 1 hour. As we were planning to stay in Mauritius at another Starwood property using points, we were able to cancel that and rearrange to stay at the Le Meridien in Seychelles. Given that there are only two Starwood properties in Seychelles, Fisherman's Cove is by far the better choice. DO NOT stay at the Le Meridien Barbarons on the other side of the island--we stopped there for lunch one day and were very disappointed--it is very out of date, has horrible service, and the food was terrible.
Fisherman's Cove has one of the best locations on Mahe I believe because it is at the end of one of the few beaches were you can actually swim without being knocked over by huge waves. It is an idyllic location.
The hotel itself is reasonably up to date. The surrounding are quite nice, and the views are unbeatable. The restaurants were not great and were very expensive, but if you do eat at the hotel, the little bar by the pool was the best. Room service was good too. There are many far better restaurants nearby which you should try, such as the pizzeria down the beach where the setting and the food are fantastic.
We were slightly disappointed with the service as it was always very slow. Room service took ages. But the staff was always very friendly. When we checked out, we were charged for somethings we should not have been, but the staff worked quickly to rectify the issues.
During our time in Seychelles we did visit some of the other upscale properties on the island, such as Banyan Tree, Maia and the Hilton. All look just stunning, but are located in areas that either are not on a beach or have very big surf. Fisherman's Cove is the best hotel if you want access to a great swimming beach.
Overall, our experience was positive, but we would only stay here again because the location is so great.
