This place does not deserve the title of "resort"! There was little to do besides snorkelling and water craft (extra cost for water craft). The smorgasbord was below standard and was very close to the same every night. There is certainly not a chef cooking. The price of the food and drinks was exorbitant. We couldn't enjoy any of it...

So it was a special event, the birthday holiday for my girlfriend. I had informed the hotel that this was the case, and told them her name. There was no birthday cake, not happy birthday ----- on the nice gateaux, just some more daily macaroons! Considering this is part of France, where were the lovely cake that could have been... More

We expected everything to be expensive in New Caledonia, but the prices at this island "resort" were ridiculous! Breakfast was included in our "accommodation" cost, but if you had to pay, it would be 3500francs (more than A$40) per person. Lunch and dinner were both a buffet arrangement which cost 6500 francs per person (more than A$80 pp), except on... More

A short ride by motor launch/ferry is all it takes to get to this tropical paradise. When we first entered our overwater bungalow, the two of us stood with mouths agape facing the tranquil blue, blue waters of the Pacific Ocean that surrounds this coral atoll and laps beneath our home for just 3 nights.

A short complementary ferry from Noumea (easy airport transfer using Smiths) and a charming way to start a holiday in NC. We flew in on a Friday mid-morning and were in the sun on our private deck by mid-afternoon. The overwater bungalows are quite large with good snorkelling off your own deck. Including a turtle!

We visited this resort recently with our 7 months old baby and had an amazing stay, not wanting to come back from this relaxing holiday at an idyllic place.

I love this island resort as it is just a short boat trip from Noumea, a great place to be away if you are looking for an express getaway.

This resort is nested on the "îlot Maître" atoll , just 15 minutes away from Noumea Harbour. So after a short and agreable crossing aboard the shuttle boat, you'll land on the islet. The bungalows are confortable, roomy, and well decorated. There you may rest by the swimming pool, or practice water different activities. Îlot Maître is an excellent place... More

Having read a number of both positive and negative reviews of this resort, I had somewhat mixed expectations. My main concerns based on the other reviews were the snakes, the staff and the food.
