We arrived late and night porter was pretty shaky on details. Nothing mentioned next day but I'm pretty sure we'd been put into an out of service room. No tea, coffee, cups, microwave- completely bare. Staff at reception were varied, one guy exceptional other was very lack lustre. Wait staff in cafe very friendly. Breakfast good- Over all pretty ok for what you pay.

We were a party of 12, who had also stayed at Coconut Palms a year ago. Fantastic resturant and pool. Helpful and friendly staff. Cleaner than when we visited last year. No problems with cleanliness this year.Good breakfast as part of tariff. Rooms with ensuites were good and those with a baloney were good also, especially those overlooking the pool. Only disadvantage was that rooms without an on - suite had to share 1 shower with the rest of the floor, which led to waiting for showers at times.

Cheap place near town

Been visiting Vila since 1998. Stayed at most resorts, both expensive and cheap. The staff are great in reception, dining, bar and security. Room and bathroom reasonably tidy but not done properly every day. Noisy aircon and fridge. Need to buy new towels for rooms and replace pool cue tips. Would recommend for someone looking for cheap and friendly place which is close to town.

Great resort, wonderful staff.

My boyfriend and I wanted somewhere cheap, central and that had air con and I pool. This place was perfect!! The staff were amazing, the resort food was good and cheap compared to some other places. It isn't an extremely fancy place but if you are just looking for a very simple place to base yourself it is perfect. The buffet breakfast in the morning is also incredible! Absolute winner. It may not be in 100% perfect condition but it was a great place to stay with very friendly staff, a lovely pool, pool tables and darts, working air con and a tv with constant movies playing. We had a few problems but the staff went above and beyond to help us out. I would totally stay there again.
