Have gotten over to Ilot Maitre a couple of times this week for kite boarding. The first time my non-kiting friends went to the pool/bar and raved about the cocktails. Yesterday the wind dropped off so I joined them. Initially they had no ice and then no mint and no cold beer. Even after 45 min in the freezer the... More

Turtles at your doorstep and delightful snorkelling made our three days in an overwater bungalow wondrous. It's a low key vibe so don't go if you need nightlife but the understated facilities and spacious bungalow were perfect for us. Grab a few supplies for your fridge before catching the ferry if you want to enjoy your own private sunset drinks... More

Ok, after just returning from 4 nights at this resort I am going to start with the positives ... Easy to get to from Sydney for a short break; absolutely stunning location with beautiful clear water and some good snorkelling - right off your over water bungalow steps; we saw turtles every day, incredible coloured fish, bright blue giant starfish...

my wife and I spent two nights in one of the over water bungalows for our 10th wedding anniversary. I was previously armed with some of the previous reviews of this resort prior to booking. We both found the resort to be amazing, the overwater bungalow was fantastic the sea life and crystal clear waters surrounding the bungalow were picture... More

Stayed for 3 nights on the over water bungalow no 168 was perfect, had lots of privacy and amazing views of the sunset. Room was so beautiful and well equipped everything was provided. The staff were all great but one special lady called Marie France stood out the most she really went out of her way to make everything perfect... More

This resort was lovely, definitely a nice island escape. The place was quite overpriced, especially the food which was not up to standard for the amount we paid for it. The pool area was lovely but a lot of people who came to the resort for the day were using it, even though it says it's reserved for hotel guests.... More

We are regular cruises, and like everyone else, didn't care for the port stop at Noumea at all. This cruise we did something different and caught a water taxi over to Escapade island. One of the best places- i loved it. The buffet lunch was fantastic and if you like snorkeling and water sports you will have so much fun.... More

We stayed at the Escapade Island Resort for two nights and wishes we had stayed longer. The island is a short boat ride from Noumea and is a lovely place to relax. The resort is well kitted out and the rooms are large and clean. our only suggestion was for the resort to concentrate more on the staying guests as... More

We had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at l'Escapade and it was wonderful. Not sure about some of the other reviews but we had a great time. Plenty of relaxation, snorkelling and swimming. Lovely food each night and a live band on the Saturday night which was a bonus. The snakes were of no importance other than watching their... More

We spent 7 beautiful nights at L'Escapade Ilot Maitre. It truly is a tropical paradise resort built on its own private island. The resort takes advantage of the beautiful island and the surrounding lagoon, boasting beautiful and spacious bungalows situated in the tropical gardens or over the crystal blue water. Relax around the beautiful pool with its own bar or... More
