We went here from a cruise boat booked with Alfred ( Gatewaytours.com) we had full use of the island. After some snorkelling very close to the beach we were able to see angel fish, nemo, little bright blue fish and sea slugs. Lunch was spectacular, everything you could possibly want to eat. Dessert was special little tiny eclair, mousses, cakes... More

Booked a beach bungalow for three nights from Saturday the 12th and had to amend my booking to just two nights as my flight was too early to get off the island in time. Once I arrived at Port Moselle to get the Ferry I was told my booking for the first and last night were both cancelled even though... More

5 days in an overwater bungalow was just perfect for a rest. Spent my days relaxing on the deck and snorkelling straight off the steps on the bungalow. Food at the restaurant was quite outstanding and plenty to choose from. Never crowded and plenty of beach to choose from. Absolutely outstanding.

I booked only two nights here as many of the reviews were quite negative but could easily stay longer. We have an overwater bungalow which is beautiful. Large, comfy bed, amazing shower. The private deck with stairs leading down to lagoon is a huge plus. Free wifi. Stunning views. Swim up bar in the pool. For couples wanting relax I... More

I really enjoyed my stay in this hideaway in August 2016. Staff was outstanding and very friendly and welcoming. I was lucky to find a reasonable offer for a stay in an overwater bungalow which was really nicely appointed with absolutely stunning sea views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was quiet large and very clean, but the... More

There are many great things about l'escapade and a few not so great. All in all it was a perfect choice for a honeymoon!

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... More

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!... More

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... More

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...
