Husband and I dropped in on a recent visit to Vanuatu and asked to have a wander around to revisit the spot we got married 4 years ago. Cyclone Pam struck a few months after our wedding and we were pleased to see everything still intact and looking beautiful, including the huge

The first room they gave us was absolutely disgusting, it smelt wet & mouldy.. no surprise there was mould on the lamp shades (room 133). I asked for a different room, the receptionist didn’t say anything and kept me waiting for about 20 minutes in silence not knowing what she

Hi, can anyone please advise how much a babysitter/nanny costs?

HI Just saw your message so I hope I am not too late!! Happy hour was abut 20% off BUT BUT remind them its happy hour as they happily forget and do. They can make any cocktail just ask, and have daily cocktail specials every day, but its more a different flavour cocktail on special. As for teenagers, it really depends who else is travelling at the same time as you. There are so many fun things for teenagers out of the resort with the lagoon and snorkelling, swing off trees into water etc however at the resort there is a gym, pools, cricket, footballs, kayak, stand up paddle board, catamaran and this cool motorised surfboard - anyone of any age would be fine here. Have a great time!!!

"Ask facing the golf course and not the gardens (not much of a view)or the pool(too noisy)"
"Lagoon view rooms are the best"
"The rooms overlooking the lagoon are best. There are other very private bungalows on the other side of the lagoon"
"definitely opt for lagoon view rooms"
"Ocean or pool view are nicest."
