We have just returned from our second visit to Hideaway Island and it was better than ever! This time we stayed in the 2 bedroom Villa which is amazing we had a fantastic time. Even though we flew into Port Vila the day after the worst storms and localised flooding in living memory for Efate everything was running as normal... More

Hi David and Friends, Thank you for writing the review. Yes, it has been a difficult time for some of the locals with the floods etc and your very kind words are respected. I will pass on your regards to the team and we look forward to seeing you again in December. Warm regards, Mark. More

We travelled over as a group of 2 families, 4 adults and 6 children. We chose it because we saw that it seemed to be good value but we were concerned at not having air con. I was completely put at ease because of the way the island traps the weather...the bungalows get beautiful sea breeze, and the beach has... More

This is the 5th or 6th time we've stayed here. Everything is very easy. The place is a lot more westernized than it use to be and would meet the requirements of a lot of travelers. Its very easy getting to and from the Island with the wee boat running whenever you turn up. Having the Security on the mainland... More

The hotel and rooms are simply furnished as befits the location. The staff are what makes the place stand out. Wonderful smiles greet you at all times of the day or night and nothing is too much trouble. Using the boat to access the mainland, gives a real sense of somewhere very special. The boat comes over at a moments... More

The Hideaway Island resort was the perfect place for a girls week away. There were activities organised everyday/night or you could just sit on the beach and enjoy the sun and the amazing snorkeling. The hideaway team are awesome!The 3 Brians, Alice, Rose, Charity, Party-boy Josh, and the rest of the crew made our time there so easy and fun!!... More

I have just been to Hideaway Island in Vanuatu for a whole week. A small boat takes you to and from the island within 5 minutes, day or night and when you are a guest on the island, it’s totally free. It’s a very small island; the ‘rough’ side catches the winds and you can’t really swim there as it’s... More

We stayed for the week leading up to our wedding and cannot praise highly enough the genuine friendliness of Mark and Sue and all their staff and their total commitment to making our stay a wonderful experience. Every single person on the island went the extra mile for us and we are very grateful. We will be back many more... More

We stayed for 7 nights and it definitely wasn't long enough. I was quite upset to leave, especially having the best snorkel on that last morning - calm as calm and so many fish to see. We stayed in Bungalow 3 which is a great place to stay - away from the bustle of the daytrippers, with lovely views over... More
