The Island is exclusive for the Royal Carrib but its actually part of Haiti -though peaceful in comparison to the rest of the country. It's about 2 miles long at the most and easy to walk because its mostly flat.
We spent the day there- it was ok. Dont waste your money snorkeling because there was almost no coral there- your money would be better spent on a snorkeling excursion in Mexico, its one of the top 10 in the World
If you've ever been to Royal's Coco Cay, Labardee was a bigger disappointment - we were hoping that it was as pretty and comfortable as Royal's Coco Cay but it wasn't as crystal clear and the beaches were like the beaches in New England- sand was yellowish and swimming was rough and we saw several baracudas very close to shore. Swimmers beware!
On a more positive note, the food was fairly good and you can get quite a deal at the village but make sure you bring little money with you otherwise the village sellers will get you to spend it - some of the greatest sales people in the World
