Having read many negative reviews of this hotel we were bracing ourselves for the worst. Overall we were pleased. Tip 1: you come here for the views and experience and not the food. There were 5 adults and 3 children that went on this trip. We were greeted with a non-alcoholic cocktail, very friendly staff who spoke perfect English and...

L'escapade was a major disappoinment. Essentially it's not a "feel good" place. Some staff are so moody, downright rude and uncooperative that the beauty of the location just dissipates. It was quite pervasive, an insititutionalized bad mood. I was very affected, and felt that what was going to be a dream vacation was turning into a waste of time and...

We stayed at the resort for 2 nights as a family with a kid which to some extent limited our possibilities of enjoying this beautiful small island. If I summarize my impressions first, I think it´ s ideal romantic place for couples and also for snorkelling. 3-4 nights here might be just enough. The food is very expensive, yet it...

If you want to swim/snorkel with turtles, this is definitely the place to go. We have seen turtels every time we went snorkeling and you can also see them when walking to the bungalows. Thats the 5 star part. The hotel on the other hand is a completely different story. We had booked a standard bungalow, since the overwater ones...

After spending four nights in a cabin in Ille de Pines, we were extremely excited to 'live it up' in the beautiful L'Escapade Island Resort. The welcome was lovely, we were provided with a drink on arrival and one of the hotel staff explained where we would be staying, how to hire things etc. That's where the positives end! There's...

Have gotten over to Ilot Maitre a couple of times this week for kite boarding. The first time my non-kiting friends went to the pool/bar and raved about the cocktails. Yesterday the wind dropped off so I joined them. Initially they had no ice and then no mint and no cold beer. Even after 45 min in the freezer the...

Turtles at your doorstep and delightful snorkelling made our three days in an overwater bungalow wondrous. It's a low key vibe so don't go if you need nightlife but the understated facilities and spacious bungalow were perfect for us. Grab a few supplies for your fridge before catching the ferry if you want to enjoy your own private sunset drinks...
