“fantastic holiday!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

All the staff at Village de Santo were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely, food in the restaurant was fantastic and being just out of town was a nice quite place. Into town was very easy, a 2 minute cab ride for about 100-200Vatu per person. Highly recommend this great resort.

We stayed at Village in September for 3 nights with my 2 sons, and I can only agree with the other reviews. Beautiful rooms, clean and spacious. Great food. And really friendly service from all the staff. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this place.

We stayed as a family with 2 adults and 2 children for 3 nights in late September. I can't speak highly enough of what an excellent service Bev and Nabil and the staff provided. Nothing was too much trouble.
The restaurant was first class, great breakfasts and food in the evenings, and excellent entertainment. Desmond and his band got us all up doing Vanuatu dances which was a lot of fun.
Bev and Nabil organised some awesome sightseeing and cultural tours - the positive memories of these will last a lifetime!
The rooms had plenty of room and were well set out.
The walk to town was easy and cabs were plentiful and cheap.
Loved my morning walks to the interesting locations within walking distance.
An excellent holiday - our only regret was only coming for 3 nights - we all look forward to returning one day!

Great seclusion, not busy, away from town etc. No TVs in rooms which made for a relaxing stay especially as it is a very open place and other rooms would hear each others TVs if we had them. Owners are very accommodating and really want to help.

The staff will help with anything you ask. There is no extra charge for room service (just normal restaurant prices) and the food is the best in Santo! No kidding, everyone said to eat there when we asked for recommendations.

Only down side was the lack of air conditioning, although we didn't need it (we don't care for it) I can see how others might just want it.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to town back on to a village with roosters, try and get the ones further from town.

Thank you so much for highlighting the two great advantages of staying at Village de Santo Resort. Seclusion and close to town. This is very helpful for future travelers.
Good to hear the Television was not missed. Restaurant 1606 (our in house dining) specializes in entertainment and most guests love to get involved or just enjoy the night time ambiance!
Restaurant 1606 is number one in Santo, thanks to our TripAdvisor reviews, we value your feedback and great to hear non guest are recommending us.
Air Conditioning has been considered in Deluxe Suites, however it is far healthier and guests adapt much quicker in the hottest month of February if they don’t use Air Con. Apart from February Santo’s weather is stunning by day and cool by night.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Bev and Nabile are so helpful- Bev helped us out with booking alterations promptly and flexibly before our stay and Nabile helped during our stay, offering to make phone calls for us and checking in to see how we were and to have a chat regularly. Our room was spotless, bed comfortable and grounds and garden beautiful. The restaurant has incredible food and we were surprised by the inclusion of a delicious free breakfast. Only criticism is that it's not the most central and it's a 15 minute walk or 5 minute taxi into town. Would still recommend to others.

Thank you for your review and positive feedback on our helpful staff, spotless rooms, comfy beds,beautiful gardens and grounds. Well done housekeeping and grounds men, your comments were passed on to the staff who were delighted!
The food is not only incredible but our Restaurant team is amazing, thank you.
Location being 5 minutes away by taxi from the noise and bustle of town has its advantages, we think! But no, we are not in the middle of Luganville town centre so thank you for mentioning that and thank you so much for recommending Village de Santo Resort to others.

It’s great fun being on Holidays! Charlie was in holiday mode and the local Ni Vanuatu love children, so nothing is too much effort, to make sure Children enjoy their holiday, with Mum and Dad.
Thank you for commenting on our hospitality, its easy when you enjoy what you do. We especially love our music nights, Jamming with Desmond when we all get to perform and so do the guests.
Restaurant 1606 is going from strength to strength we are very excited about our new Tapas menu. The staff thanks you for the feedback.
Look forward to seeing Charlie and his Mum and Dad again.
