Beautiful swimming and snorkeling and lovely isolated beach areas to explore. The pilotis room above the water was fantastic. The food unfortunately was only buffet style so was disappointing. A great place to relax for a few days

great location - outdated hotel

booked the hotel because of what we thought was a great location ... unfortunately the hotel and facilities all felt a bit aged and in need of some upgrade. Staff was reasonably friendly, buffet food bit boring after a few days.

Worst Honeymoon Idea

Horrible experience! Views are great but other than that the resort is tired, not clean and overpriced! We booked for 7 nights, spent one night and then took the first ferry home. We had three snakes on our doorstep overnight which made us skip dinner as we didn't want to take the 5 minute dark walk with snakes around. I get it that the snakes are placid but they are one of the most venomous snakes so I'd rather not take that risk. We had left the TV on when we went to bed and as my husband woke and got up to turn it off, he noticed a lizard on the bed. I noticed ants in the bathroom but didn't expect them to be throughout our bed and yes, they certainly were. We woke up several times itching until I finally awoke to have two ants on my arm! We were unable to change rooms due to the resort being booked out so when cancelling, they refused to provide any compensation. The lady at reception just refused and kept saying "it's ok, you stay here". We then booked alternate accommodation, as well as the first ferry back and moved on to the Hilton on the promenade in Noumea which was amazing! I rang Wotif to inform them of what happened and of the refusal for any compensation, the help desk tried calling the hotel, who came back and said no compensation, he then tried again and they offered to move us to a "sister hotel" after the operator explained to the hotel that we had booked alternate accommodation. The hotel they suggested had extremely bad reviews - money not well spent!!!!

Good for a couple of days

Relaxing spot away from the noise of traffic etc. in Nouméa. I enjoyed the bird spotting and walking around on the tidal flats. Stock up on snacks before you come to the island. The food is pricey. The management could stand to go around the place and do up a maintenance list. Most (but not all) things that I could see were minor. However together they take away from the experience.

great island

Pros: The buffet was great and the activities available
Cons: the pool cleanliness, at the end of the day there was a lot of hair floating around. We wished the ferry came more often at more times of the day.
Really enjoyed the staff, were all very lovely and welcoming.

Room steps away from the beach

The resort was relaxing and a great get away for a short stay. Food was good but would have liked more fresh tropical fruit and a choice of al a carte menu.

Beautiful island getaway!

Pros: A private island escape, isolated from crowds and the city. Surrounded by crystal clear water, a private beach and great hospitality.
Cons: I would have like to be made aware that Noumea was French speaking as well as only accepting Francs ($XPF). Luckily the staff were so helpful!
Location: The island resort was a 20 min boat ride to the city, although for the duration I stayed on the Island, snorkelling, swimming and tanning daily.
From the minute I stepped onto the boat to 'Escapade' I was impressed with the hospitality and the beauty of Noumea. I believe it makes a holiday when you feel welcome and the staff are attentive to every need! It was a holiday to relax, we had a crystal clear beach on our doorstep, perfect for a dip or snorkelling. We even saw 5 turtles on 1 day! Couldn't be happier.

Beautiful location, very relaxing, excellent staff

This is an excellent island resort for anyone who wishes to get away from the chaos of life for a short while. The location is magnificent. The staff are very friendly and spoke excellent English. I felt very welcome during the entire stay. I enjoyed the privacy of a beach front room which was very comfortable. There are plenty of interesting activities on and around the island - I would highly recommend the scuba diving. Overall I am very pleased with my holiday and look forward to returning one day.
