Plenty of pool/leisure space and multiple activity options meant the resort never felt crowded or busy. We were always able to find a nice spot to relax. Breakfast buffet was great, however all other food options were expensive and average tasting. We opted to explore Port Vila and eat out.

The view from the hotel is breathtaking, the bay is beautiful. The Catamaran boats are great but the Kayaks are not comfortable for use and break the back here are minimal or no activities for the kids. The food is horrible with no taste, the staff is very friendly but slow (took more than 1.5 hours to get the food after our order. Old and smelly rooms, not enough towels in the room (had to ask for more over and over again)

Impressive building - entrance & reception area. Cleanliness. Good staff Mold smell took a bit of getting used to but with 100% humidity it must be difficult to manage. Beautiful surroundings and very helpful services.

Our family enjoyed our time here, my wife and two boys (5 and 8), staff were lovely, friendly and very helpful. Food was not great though and really needs improvement. Quite a limited a la carte selection and buffets tended to be overpriced and often didn’t include items advertised on menus. Being right on a lagoon was great as it meant we could use the catamarans to sail around every day, which was a amazing! Canoeing was great too - always plenty of equipment available. Swimming pool was good but I felt it could have been better maintained and a little cleaner. In the six days we stayed there was two great shows we saw at the resort - a Vanuatu culture show with dancing and coconut demonstrations and a very impressive fire show which the kids really enjoyed - I think there was another one we missed too. Location was close to Port Vila which meant easy access to town if you wanted to go there. Very kid friendly and whilst the kids enjoyed kids club they probably spent most of their time there watching DVDs which wasn’t ideal- the advertised activities didn’t seem to always take place. Overall a great experience but they do need to lift their game with the food side of things- better quality, more variety and perhaps a little more imagination!

Dear Mungo, Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your most recent stay! It is fantastic to see that you enjoyed your stay over all and in particular, the water sports and entertainment however I am disappointed and sorry to hear that you didn't find the dining experiences as amazing. I have shared your feedback with our Executive Chef and the Food & Beverage Manager and we will use it constructively as we strive to improve our offerings. Kind Regards, Matthew Senyard Resort Manager
