We spent 4 nights here in March 2011. We had originally booked 5 nights but upon arrival, we were offered a night at Labriz. As a Diamond Honors member, we were offered an upgrade to a deluxe oceanview room. We stayed in Room 104. It was very nice.
The room was cozy and even the bathroom had a view of the ocean. It was awesome.
Breakfast was included as Hilton Diamond members. You could order items from a menu which was great as the food always came out hot. Alternatively, there is a buffet to choose from.
There is internet access in the room but not wireless. The speed was adequate for our use.
Hilltop Restaurant - breakfast and dinner is served here. Dinner is buffet. We tried it one night when the theme was seafood. There is a different theme every night. The quality of the food was high. There were various items to choose from that were cooked to order (shrimp, scallop, various types of fish, squid, octopus). Everything was very good.
Le Cocotier Restaurant - we ate dinner here one night. The cost of our meal here was not anymore than the buffet. It was also of high quality. I had prawns with pasta and it was very good and my spouse had australian lamb which was also very good.
Bar - the same menu is served all day. We ate lunch here a couple of times. The fish and chips, club sandwich and spaghetti bolognese are all good. We also tried the Quesadilla and Pad Thai but they were not to our liking.
Room Service - the menu is the same as the bar and the prices are the same although the menu states a charge for delivery, we were not charged for delivery.
Taxis at the airport are not metered. It is a good 30 minutes from the airport to the hotel. The first taxi quoted us 50 euros however, after finding the Hilton Labriz representative, he negotiated a taxi for us for 35 euros. The hotel also offers transport for 35 euros. I would email them prior to arrival to arrange so you do not have to worry about haggling with the taxi cab drivers.
Once a week, the hotel offers free transport to the Botanical Gardens. Admission was 200 SCR for 2 people or 15 euros. However, we were not too impressed with the Botanical Gardens.
There is a manager's reception every Thursday with complimentary drinks but only 1-2 drinks are offered per person.
As a Diamond Hilton member, we were offered 20 minute massages at the spa for myself and my spouse. The spa environment is very nice and the treatments were nice.
There are no kids allowed at the resort which made it pretty peaceful and quiet everywhere you went. There is only one pool and it is small. There really is not much of a beach here, especially during high tide.
If you plan on visiting other islands, my recommendation is to arrange it prior to arriving as there is not a tour desk at the hotel. We did not visit any other islands as we were content just relaxing at the Hilton. It was really enjoyable just hanging around and doing nothing.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Seychelles.
