We stayed at the L’Escapade Island Resort for five nights in October 2016 for our honeymoon. From our first arrival this place was amazing. The staff greeted us with a cocktail, were all very friendly and the location was beautiful. We had an overwater bungalow which was very well appointed, but the best aspect was the location. We were able...

We stayed in one of the modern, well fitted out overwater bungalows for five nights in Sept 2016! Despite barely speaking a word of French, we felt completely relaxed and the staff made our say very enjoyable. Comfy beds, absolutely beautiful weather, stunning marine life and a great ever changing buffet style restaurant, with smiling staff to assist wherever possible!...

Overwater bungalows were gorgeous but the food & customer service were lacking. Extremely disappointed. Beware it should be called Snake Island. Pool bar was closed during the week, no entertainment during the week and the shop was closed for souvenirs. Buffet was overpriced and everyday we were served leftovers from the day before disguised in a salad with sauce. Prawns...

We spent two nights in the overwater bungalow and thought it was divine! Snorkelling at your doorstep, French/Kanak hospitality, delicious buffet and a spacious and comfortable bungalow. It was impeccably clean, very tastefully furnished and just amazingly romantic around sunset. The pool area is great, although the pool bar is only open Friday and Saturday in the low season. The...

In order to get to L'Escapade, you have to take a ferry from Port Morselle in Noumea. The ferry ride is around 20-25 minutes. The ferry itself is a wide flat bottom type ferry. There is plenty of room on the boat and complimentary water. The porters will take your luggage, tag it and you will not see it again...

I couldn't bring myself to write a review after our "luxury"holiday last year so I'm doing it now for some closure. Absolutely the worst holiday of all time. In a nutshell; ●buffet food all the time; very little vegetarian fare & lots of leftovers & very overpriced at approx $90p.p per meal. Nothing else to eat outside of meal times....

My husband and I booked a week at L'Escapade for our honeymoon.. And what a mistake that was! We went by the beautiful photos on the Internet which should not be trusted. We spent one night and took the first ferry back to Noumea after that! We were in room 115 which was one of the last set of bungalows....

WOW! I highly recommend spending a night or even two in an over water bungalow. Book yourself in and treat yourself! There are mixed reviews about the buffet, but in my personal opinion...if you don't like seafood or you're a fussy eater then perhaps just take your own makings for a dinner. the breakfast spread on the other hand was...

I stayed one night at the resort but it was enough ... Customer service was very lacking. I made the mistake of taking the early boat (9am) from the mainland to the island, 10 minutes away. Most of the people on the boat were only there for a day trip so when we got off the boat it was very...
