Relaxed family resort

Pros: Low key atmosphere, lovely staff. Got to know other families
Cons: The road in, tough on Hire cars. Needs large potholes repaired.
Location: Loved having access by kayak to Island across the lagoon - winding path through tropical shrubs to swimming Beach on the other side magic.
We were looking for a smaller resort with access to all the simple water activities, to share our 70th birthdays with our daughters and their families (5 children ages 3 to 11) Aquana was perfect, a safe environment with lots to do : on land all children participated in lovely activities organised by Valerie & her skilled team of Nannies ; on the lagoon lots of kayaking & paddle-boarding. Good food, enjoyable evening entertainment enhanced the stay. Because we hired cars we could access Zipline & Mele Cascades though road access to resort is a challenge.

Dear Brennan, thank you very much for your e-mail and lovely feedback. It is very rewarding for us to be able to contribute to a memorable holiday experience. On a positive note :-) - we were promised that the road to Aquana should be tar sealed by the end of August. Wishing you and the whole family only the best and hope we will see each other one day again. Best Regards

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms.
Location: The resort is about 20 minutes out from town but they do run a free shuttle bus service at 9.30am. Otherwise you have to pay for a bus.
An excellent place to stay especially for families with very young children. The nannies are amazing and always on hand to watch your children. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Can arrange any tours you may want to go on. Food in restaurant is delicious.

amazing hotel with wonderfully attentive staff

Amazing location, Such friendly and attentive staff- they couldn't do enough for us. Whisk the kids away to have fun while you relax round the pool with a cocktail! The kayaks and paddle boards were perfect for exploring the island opposite the resort- kids loved falling in to the safe lagoon and splashing about. Great snorkelling off island in front of resort too. Recommend getting a taxi transfer from airport (about 4,000 VT) rather than the resort's transfer tho.

An ideal family resort.

Pros: The best features of this resort are the Nannies, the restaurant and the trips to the nearby island for snorkeling.
Cons: A better road leading to the resort (obviously not their fault) and a sign from the main road for self drivers.
Location: The Blue Lagoon is a 25 minute drive east and well worth the visit. Eratap Resort is a short drive away but is adults only most of the year.
We stayed at Aquana for 8 days with our 18 month old daughter and would thoroughly recommend it. If our daughter had not been unwell (and perhaps had been a bit older), it would have been the most relaxing holiday ever! The resort is beautiful and very well maintained. The facilities, including the pool and trampoline, were of high quality and beautifully kept. The staff are great- the front desk staff were so helpful when our daughter was unwell, the restaurant staff never failed to accommodate our requests, and the nannies are so warm and friendly and tireless! A particular highlight for us was the restaurant. As "foodies" we were a little concerned about being "trapped" at one restaurant, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The menu is broad and the dishes were, almost without fail, very well done. The trips out to a nearby island for snorkeling (at no extra cost) were a highlight.

Pros: Pleasant staff and owners. Smaller resort with personal touch.
Cons: Still a bit under development. In 6 months time it should be a much better place (July 2012 visit)
Location: Tranquil, Good views
Facilities: Unpretentious; Value: Affordable; Service: Professional, Friendly, Courteous; Cleanliness: Tidy, Clean, Neat; A Freindly place and good for families, without being over the top with kids running around. Never going to be 5 star but by no means low rent

Pros: Personal attention from the owners and amazingly friendly staff.
Cons: Hard to reach without a 4WD vehicle - though it was the end of the wet season when we visited.
Location: Tranquil
Facilities: Above average; Value: Decent price for quality; Service: Go the extra mile, Outstanding; Cleanliness: Pleasant; Area is less tourist-dominated than Port Vila and the resort islands, which is a great plus. Downtown is only 20 minutes away, though.
