We had an excellent stay at l'Escapade! Upon check in we received excellent customer service from Ornella. Our return flight was too early in the mornin to make the boat back to the mainland, so between Ornella and Celia they arranged for our last night to be on the mainland so that we would be able to get a transfer...

My husband and I were in desperate need of a relaxing holiday in a warm place with comfortable accommodation, sea swimming and good food. The resort provided us with all of that although the buffet did get a bit boring after a while. It certainly helped to understand and to speak some French because that is definitely the main language.... More

Slightly nervous as we like the good life with 3 energetic kiwi kids. Wow it's was fabulous, friendly service, Merci beau coup Eloise and Lucas plus Le cuisine was wonderful. For young kids 7,9,10yrs it was the perfect place to snorkel. The turtles were a highlight. Great fun paddle boarding. A wonderful relaxing holiday. Merci Harry ;)

We stayed in an overwater bungalow - so good. Rooms were large and well appointed. Our kids 14/17yrs stayed in the lounge - the rollaway beds weren't the most comfortable, but we used the sofa for an added mattress. How great having the biggest swimming pool ever. We swam daily with turtles. Fish were plentiful, but not really the colourful... More

We stayed in an overwater bungalow and we were very pleasantly surprised when we walked in. We read some reviews and looked at some photos and they did not do the place justice. We got off the plane from Australia that morning and went straight there and were completely relaxed and chilled out within 12 hours. I found the service... More

Having read many negative reviews of this hotel we were bracing ourselves for the worst. Overall we were pleased. Tip 1: you come here for the views and experience and not the food. There were 5 adults and 3 children that went on this trip. We were greeted with a non-alcoholic cocktail, very friendly staff who spoke perfect English and... More

L'escapade was a major disappoinment. Essentially it's not a "feel good" place. Some staff are so moody, downright rude and uncooperative that the beauty of the location just dissipates. It was quite pervasive, an insititutionalized bad mood. I was very affected, and felt that what was going to be a dream vacation was turning into a waste of time and... More

We stayed at the resort for 2 nights as a family with a kid which to some extent limited our possibilities of enjoying this beautiful small island. If I summarize my impressions first, I think it´ s ideal romantic place for couples and also for snorkelling. 3-4 nights here might be just enough. The food is very expensive, yet it... More

If you want to swim/snorkel with turtles, this is definitely the place to go. We have seen turtels every time we went snorkeling and you can also see them when walking to the bungalows. Thats the 5 star part. The hotel on the other hand is a completely different story. We had booked a standard bungalow, since the overwater ones... More

After spending four nights in a cabin in Ille de Pines, we were extremely excited to 'live it up' in the beautiful L'Escapade Island Resort. The welcome was lovely, we were provided with a drink on arrival and one of the hotel staff explained where we would be staying, how to hire things etc. That's where the positives end! There's...
