We booked Paradise Cove for a family holiday (11 of us), and the place was ideal. We had 3 bungalows, so we were close (but not too close), and we felt like it was our own holiday destination. We were well looked after by Constance and Marc, and our 5 grandchildren were well looked after by the very friendly staff.... More

This is a beautiful small resort. It is in a peaceful location, with lovely water views and a private beach and jetty. The staff and owners are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The resort grounds feel very safe and peaceful, and the garden has lovely tropical plants. The restaurant has a welcoming and informal atmosphere, with water views and arm chairs... More

Paradise Cove is small boutique hotel with a handful of well-appointed bungalows set in beautifully landscaped gardens overlooking the ocean. You could snorkel directly off the private jetty. Private beach, lovely restaurant, great equipment (snorkels, kayaks, reef shoes, plenty of boardgames!). Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the owners were charming. The restaurant served far and away the best... More

I recently spent 7 nights at Paradise Cove with my 19 year son who was doing a dive course in Port Vila - we deliberately chose a small resort and i'm glad we did. The staff and Constance and Marc were just fantastic - really friendly and always helpful, the food at the restaurant was so good I never felt... More

Paradise Cove is well named and worth visiting, don't head out straight to the islands. The atmosphere is beautifully relaxed, the staff are empowered by their lovely owners to be genuinely attentive and all seem very happy to be working there ( who wouldn't) The snorkelling straight off the jetty is wonderful, the water crystal clear, the kayaks were free...

We took a local bus from Port Villa (200VT) to Paradise Cove Resort and spent a whole day there. Nice small beach where you can just relax and enjoy the peacefulness. Resort staff are friendly and welcoming (even you are not the resort guest). Food was average but who cares, especially when you have such a spectacular view right in... More

Only two short nights but among the most memorable (in a good way) of our trip. Accommodation at short notice, great last minute rates, charming and gregarious hosts, the friendliest staff in the islands, fantastic food - and I haven't even got to the bit about the rooms/resort grounds yet. Everything about this place is pure class. Marc and Constance... More

Our family of 4 including master 9 and miss 7 enjoyed every minute. It's like the ultimate glamping (aka glamorous camping) The absence of aircon and TV creates a quietness that I've... More
