In a nut shell i would highly recommend Hideaway Island resort. Good clean amenities, pool, bar / restaurant with good food. Coral beach with its own reef, great snorkelling and its own underwater post box! Its located 10 mins drive from the airport. Its only a couple of minutes in frequent cheap buses to Port Villa town. Its a 30... More

Went to Hideaway in 2003 and loved it so decided to go back with the family. Looked on line last week and saw a bungalow was available for this week, flights worked too. Phoned them to check what it would be like to push a wheelchair around, couldn't remember what the paths etc were like and our 6 yr old... More

This was our second visit to Hideaway, we went in 2010 for a week, this time we stayed at a different resort (Erakor Island see sep review) but had one night back at Hideaway mainly just for the snorkelling. We stayed in a ocean side bungalow, 2 adults and 2 kids and for us it was great. We love Hideaway.... More

We spent a week on Hideaway with our 1 year old. We chose it as you can snorkel right off the beach so we wouldn't have to take whole day trips just to do a bit of snorkeling. The snorkeling is quite good, there are heaps of fish, a fair bit of coral and as a guest we were able... More

Just returned from the Hideaway for second time. Nothing had changed just as good as before. Went to Fiji to get away from the winter here and it didn't let us down. This time we booked the deluxe beachfront bure plus the meals and drinks inclusive package and this was very worth the extra money. We also had the $500... More

Loved the experience from start to finish. Its a private island, which is just a quick boat ride to the mainland. What I loved the most was the snorkelling - WOW - an amazing array of fish in this Marine Sanctuary, the genuine friendly staff and tasty food at a restaurant with sandy beach floor. Favourite time was late afternoon... More

We stayed for 7 nights at this lovely little island just off the mainland and just loved the friendly staff, beautiful snorkelling which is right at your door step and great food. Our bungalow was number 12 which looked straight out over the reef, there was a lounge suite not that we stayed inside, a table and chairs, fridge, queen... More

We took our extended family to Hideaway in July 2014 and stayed in beach side bungalows. The best part of the stay was the swimming and snorkelling at your doorstep, absolutely outstanding. The bungalows were fine, yes there some shortcomings like power going off unexpectedly but promptly fixed, poor shower head etc but beds were comfortable and the service really... More

Wow this is is just wow. Secluded & quiet in your private hut and if you choose to head down the windy paths to the main area there is plenty to do. You dine on amazing food while your feet run through the sand. Take a glass bottom boat ride around the island. Go snorkelling (all equipment provided) the possibilities... More

This is my third visit to Hideaway in twelve months - haven't written on Tripadvisor before because I wanted to keep it my special secret. But have decided that's selfish and Hideaway's magic should be shared with everyone. The first thing I love is being able to step into the water and be immediately surrounded by coloured fish swimming around... More
