I can highly recommend Paradise Cove Resort. If you want a relaxing and peaceful holiday that feels twice as long as the time you stayed, this is the place to go. The staff are incredibly friendly and the owners Marc and Constance make sure all your holidays needs are catered for and that the resort is well run. Everything is done to make your holiday experience a memorable one. We will definitely go back after exploring Vanuatu. There are plenty of activities cycling, canoeing and snorkelling which is available at the resort with amazing coral and varied fish species. You can feed them and the water literally boils there are so many of them. Equipment is supplied as part of your stay and its all in good condition and free to use. External activities are also easy to organise and day visits from this location are in striking distance by taxi or bus. The resort is not too big and busy so you can relax on the beach or in a hammock and just chill without the need to go anywhere. The acommodation is clean and comfortable and there is aircon for the heat of summer. The cabins have a fridge and stove if you want a meal away from the restaurant which also offers a wide range of excellent food to suit most tastes. The bar is also well stocked if you after a cocktail. There is a happy hour everyday for a scenic sundowner The resort is great for kids and my son and daughter aged 11 and 15 just loved the place. If you considering a visit to Vanuatu don't overlook this hidden gem.

We celebrated our daughter’s wedding at Paradise Cove Resort in December 2019. All of the wedding guest were accommodated for 5 night at the resort. I cannot emphasis enough what an amazing experience this was for everyone. The owners of the resort, Constance and Marc and the entire Paradise Cove team went out of their way to make the experience really special from start to finish, culminating in the most beautiful and memorable wedding. They made the most beautiful arch for the ceremony to take place under and the food was out of this world. Special mention must be made of the flowers, from the wedding table arrangements to all the bridal bouquets, all beautifully created by Paradise Coves’ lovely ladies. This, all in a resort that exudes luxury but relates as relaxed and effortless. The villas are tastefully luxurious, the food amazing and the facilities more than you could wish for. On behalf of our very cosmopolitan group of wedding guests I would like to say a very big, heartfelt thank you, baie danke, ngibona kakhulu, vielen Dank, grazie mille

The name says it all...Paradise! We had our wedding at Paradise Cove in December - we stayed for 5 nights with all of our guests and it was the best experience. Everything was perfect! The resort grounds are beautiful, the villas are tastefully decorated and have an authentic feel - the thoughtful touches and attention to detail throughout the resort really sets Paradise Cove apart from the other resorts we have stayed at in Port Vila. The managers Constance and Marc are amazing people! We cannot thank them enough! Special thanks to their wonderful team: Elisabeth, Annie, Edna, Nolene, Esther and all the other staff that make Paradise Cove such a special place. We cannot wait to return!

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.
