Facilities and food
We stayed for 3 nights during the week and was dissapointed that the bar pool was not open and the gift shop was only open on the morning we left. Not big eaters so would prefer a la carte menu and lucky breakfast was free and received 2 for 1 for dinner otherwise food is extremely overpriced. We stayed in room 110 loved the location but found the rocks leading to the beach was quite dangerous

make up your mind
in short check in staff attitude was very arrogant and not helpful, some areas are in desperate need of repair, major trip hazards along foot path, mould at the the pool bar areas, pool filters not operating etc, toilet having issues, phones in rooms not connected etc. the whole hotel facilities including rooms are pretty dated. food is very pricey, while plenty not really great for the price...

Amazing Sea View
Great spacious room, amazing view over the ocean and really friendly and accommodating service.
I stayed at one of the rooms over the sea and it was incredible. I think staying in the 'garden view' style rooms would be a bit wasted on this island with such stunning vistas. It was peaceful, the staff were always accommodating but never overbearing and dinner and breakfast were first class with most items made in house. Transport to the island was easy and the water was warm and ideal to swim in.

Such a disappointment!
Over water bungalow - nothing else
There was not enough to do. Snorkelling and water craft were available (water craft extra money), but very little else. If the weather is bad, like we experienced, there really isn't anything to do. A resort needs to offer at least a gym so some sort of exercise can be accomplished. The very worst thing though is the poor quality of food and the exorbitant price you are forced to pay. There is only one place to eat and it is a smorgasbord every night. Very little variation from night to night. In fact, we wondered how much food from the night before was there. The same pot of soup was certainly the same for a few nights in a row, The cost of the smorgasbord is about $A80 per person. We even had to pay extra for tea or coffee at dinner, about $A7 per cup. There was no alternative. There were snakes everywhere! Even snakes climbing the steps to the over water bungalows. We were so disappointed by our whole experience. 1 or 2 nights stay at the most and be prepared to pay exorbitant prices for everything. Take lots of books to read. We felt very ripped off.

Wonderful except for noise from Baie de Citrons
Free snorkelling, beach access, size of rooms

Great location for over the water bungalo
over the water, laid back island
reat location for over the water bungalo but only stay for 3 nights - the island is small and buffets are a bit pricey for the quality - don;t get me wrong, food was edible; the resort is staffed at a low level and they let folks visit from minland by day too. The agoda ad said transfers included but the resort only provided wtare transfer from port to island an dback - not airport to port.

Lovely hotel for honeymooners
Fantastic sea view
The hotel is simply fantastic. Great location, smacked in a private island and beach. It's the perfect getaway spot, a breakaway from the hustle and bustle of city life and perfect for honeymooners. Best hotel in Noumea, without a doubt! One setback is you could only dine in the resort, which means you have no choice but to have their buffet breakfast and dinner other than doing room service. We find the food lack variety and quality for the price you're paying. We enjoyed the overwater bungalow - living room, bedroom and toilet are spacious with balcony to chill and lookout for sunsets. You could also jump off anytime for snorkel. Waters are crystal clear!

Great location and spacious room
The location and the beach next to our room
it was an enjoyable stay. our room was right next to the beach. reasonable price for such a private island and resort. only thing was why was there 3 beds in a room? we reckon it was for private massage. totally recommend this resort for stay if you're heading to Noumea! Staff was pleasant, although they don't necessarily understand you due to language barrier.

Lovely hotel on a stunning tranquil island
beachside accommodation, great snorkeling
We had a wonderful relaxing break at L'Escapade - reception staff and the manager at the activities centre were all very friendly.

Beautiful location
A quiet, isolated place to just relax and refresh.
spent a week there and loved the location. i was looking for a place to just 'crash' after a lot of international travel and this place was perfect. but while the accommodations are very good, the food and service leave much to be desired. the meals are all buffet and are very expensive for the quality. bar drinks are similarly overpriced for what you get - usually a poorly mixed cocktail.
