Had a fantastic time at Island Magic. Jerrie was a fantastic host and the staff were absolutely beautiful. If you want a relaxing hide away, this is your place. The rooms were very clean and you can drink the water.

We had a lovely relaxing week at the resort, we had a two bedroom bungalow which was well appointed, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed all meals in the restaurant especially the lobster mornay ! The staff were lovely and attentive, the hosts Gerry and Jan were fantastic and made our stay very enjoyable. Will return! Joe and Mary

We had visited Coco De Mer for dinner back in 2015 and decided to stay at Island Magic for a short birthday trip.
We had the one bedroom bungalow with the waterfront view and it was really spacious and had just about everything you need (only missing a potato masher!).
The bonus of having a washing machine means you can pack light and this allowed us to bring an entire bag of clothing for friends in Mele Village.
The snorkelling along the waterfront and up toward Benjor is excellent with easy access via the ramp alongside the jetty. Heaps of fish and a few baby Moray Eels to feed just next to the ramp. Apart from the snorkelling it is just a great place to relax. It is only a bit over 1 klm to the Mele Beach Bar and we walked twice, the Fire Show on Friday nights is excellent they also do a movie night, actually I think they have something on most nights. Hideaway Island is just across but honestly the snorkelling at Island Magic is just as good.
We had dinner on two nights at Coco De Mer and the food is still delicious, the Smoked Marlin Bruchetta and Coconut Prawns are a must for an entree and the Garlic Prawns and Poulet Fish were brilliant. All the staff are friendly especially Tania who is a lovely lady and Joe who likes a chat. Gerry and Jan are excellent hosts and we hope they have a great holiday.

While staying at Island magic resort in August 2016 we visited the onsite restaurant Coco de mer quite a few times. The food here is magnificent the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the views are to die for. Gerry, Jan and all the staff are so friendly, every meal we had here was very good but our personal favourite would have to be the bacon carbonara still can't find anything that comes close back in Australia so just another thing to look forward to when we return. Miss all you wonderful people at Island magic and Coco de mer.
