We stayed three nights and it was awesome snorkelling in the lagoon and seeing all the tropical fish up close and swimming with the turtles feeding on the sea grass. Fantastic buffet meals seafood galore. What a wonderful restful time we had Thanks for the wonderful service, clean comfortable rooms and a great stay on the beach.

We had two days at l'Escapade and enjoyed every moment. The overwater bungalows are lovely, it was great to be able to walk down the stairs of our bungalow and go for a swim. The bungalow was well appointed, huge bathroom, good sized bedroom, lounge room and deck. The views spectacular from all rooms (except bathroom). The only down side... More
