The water is unreal. Could sit and look at it all day. We keep coming back for that reason.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! My friends and I stayed at the aqua blue beach house. The rooms were really spacious and clean with more than enough supply of toiletries, clean towels & extra blankets. All the staff were super friendly and genuinely helpful. They ensured our trip was stress-free and hassle-free by taking care of all the bookings for tours, restaurants, etc. The views from the island were absolutely breathtaking. The resort also provided complimentary water sport facilities like kayaks, reef shoes & snorkeling gear.

Perfect resort to have a break

We were most impressed with the privacy in the cabind right on the seaside. Staff was kind, friendly, polite and relaxed. Chefs dinner , cooked by Alec , on the beach was memorable and very delicious. The crepe Suzette was to die for. We had it daily. Outstanding staff, such as Cliff, Sarah, Paul and Timothy were at all times helpful. A perfect place for a honeymoon

A beautiful space with amazing staff.

Pros: The staff went over and above what you would expect from them on every occasion, and made our stay a pleasure.
Cons: Some more vegetable options to the children's menu would be welcome (although staff were happy to provide these when requested).
Location: The island itself has all you need for a relaxing stay, but if you like, town is a five minute ferry and ten minute bus ride away.
We recently stayed for 10 days and found the resort wonderful for a family holiday. Calypso's stunning sandy beach was perfect for swimming, the snorkeling was great for beginners and the island a safe haven for the children to explore on their own. There are several beaches on the island, each with different features - crabby beach to watch the red crabs, golden beach with beautiful golden sand and great snorkeling, shelly beach to explore lagoon life at low tide and Calypso's beach for swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. There are daily activities for children including movie/pizza night on the beach and a Melanesian feast followed by a performance from the most amazing Fire Dancers. In spite of the recent hurricane the grounds were in immaculate condition and I would highly recommend Erakor Island resort.
