The photos don't do the property justice! Paradise Cove is a stunning, small and private resort located in front of a spectacular reef and only 15 minutes from Port Vila. The staff were wonderful and warm, including the owners Constance and Mark who made us feel so welcome during our stay. Our bungalow was beautifully maintained, modern and comfortable. While you can relax, eat, snorkel, kayak and bike ride at the resort, the staff are also generous with their knowledge about the best places on Efate to see its incredible unspoiled beauty and engage with the unique local culture. Can't recommend Paradise Cove highly enough.

Staff and management are more than accommodating, patient and will bend over backwards to make guests happy. Well thought out resort setting, with the “Nakamal” at the centre of the resort. Very impressed with the amazing New Year’s Eve dinner and celebrations that took place (for the extra cost of the event, it was good value).

A beach strip with character where one can escape looking out at the peaceful sea past the pretty pier. Only issue is beach strip area can get crowded if restaurant only guests decide to use the beach. Otherwise the beach strip is adequate in accomodating the ten villas of hotel guests. The pool is well maintained but not huge, nonetheless it blends in beautifully between the “Nakamal “ and beach strip.

Overall, rate the resort highly for this price bracket and would recommend. Rooms were clean and the restaurant food was awesome. Constance and Marc really make this place work and are great at creating a relaxed vibe for stressed out travelers looking to unwind. I would go back.

Constance, Marc and their team of dedicated and friendly local staff have managed to create a resort which is exceptional. From arriving to an extremely comfortable villa bedecked with local flowers, to the 'jungle drum' call to happy hour, and the relaxed, informal and welcoming feel of everyone made us instantly 'at home'. If you snorkel, the jetty provides easy and immediate access to coral reefs teeming with a huge variety of fish and sea life. Absolutely magical, and among the best we've seen in extensive travels. We'd without reservation recommend a stay at Paradise Cove.

Our group of 4 went to Paradise cove for snorkelling and lunch. There was a lot of different fish to see and the lunch was great.

it is a short bus trip from the middle of town.

The bus driver did not come back to pick us up but the staff were great organising another bus

We all would thoroughly recommend.

My family and I went to Vanuatu for my mums 50th Birthday and due to some difficulties with a previous resort which we had originally booked, we decided to leave and then we found Paradise cove. We walked in without a booking and was welcomed by the owners and the staff with open arms. The owner Constance arranged accommodation on the spot for us. We had the most amazing time there, they provided free snorkelling. kayaks and lots of games to play. The place is set up so beautifully, you could easily spend the whole day there relaxing by the crystal clear water, snorkelling with the many different colour fish and even lay by the pool.
My mums birthday was made extra special by the friendly kind staff who brought breakfast to our huts in the morning and even sang happy birthday when we celebrated dinner by the water later that evening. They have created a beautiful entertainment area where you can eat play games and swim by the pool. Some morning Constance and Mark the owner would also be in that area and we would have many good conversation with them. They are wonderful people and have a beautiful family. We felt so welcome there and nothing was ever a hassle for them. The only problem, it was too short a stay. We highly recommend Paradise cove to everyone. The staff are so friendly and you are always greeted with the sweetest smile.
Thank you for making this an unforgettable stay.
