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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

This is probably the best place to stay for budget travellers who don't want to be too far from town. The island is tiny and accessible by a small boat running back and forth from the main land throughout the whole day for guests (free) and visitors (a small fee redeemable for food and drinks). The place is clean and...
