Reviewed 4 July 2014

Though not on the beach nor in town, this place is highly recommended.
The large apartments were very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The pool and bar area are very nice, but the thing that makes this Resort special is the people, service, very nice food and yummy espresso coffee.
Breakfast includes interesting home made pawpaw and banana jam, try the wonderful fish burgers for lunch and a tapas dinner with local musicians playing in the background make this a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Though airport transfer is offered when you book for a price, it is not necessary - taxis are everyw...

From the time I met Bev and her offer to help with the booking for our party of 9 to the time Nabil said goodbye and we left for the airport the service and hospitality was faultless.
Spacious , clean rooms, friendly and highly skilled staff, great food and entertainment.
Village de Santo is the only place I will stay when visiting Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu.

Had a very nice stay at the Village de Santo in June 2014. Bev was very helpful as soon as I booked my reservation reached out by e-mail me to ask if I wanted any dives booked before I got to the island. Nabil was a great host and very welcoming. Was very responsive to all requests and made sure my stay was comfortable. The location of the hotel is great, right outside Luganville and is not far from the Coolidge. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and surprised me a little given the scale of the island. The fish and meat were both very fresh. I was travelling solo and had a great stay at the Village de Santo with many good conversations and meals with other guests as well as Nabil and his team. I would definitely recommend to friends and family travelling to Santo.

The rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were helpful and arranged tours and airport transfers without any fuss. Taxis to the main street of Luganville were very easy to find and only cost 200 vatu (about Aus $2 -$2.50). Overall a very pleasant trip and I would happily stay at the Village De Santo again.

All the staff were friendly and smiling and the owner (Nabil) and manager (David (manager) were informative, flexible and great fun.

The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds had beautiful Egyptian cotton sheets – ask Nabil (from Cairo) the thread count!

Food was terrific, service exceptional due to a great attitude amongst the team – Nabil took his 12 staff on the Millennium Cave tour as a bonding session. They bonded and the team has stayed together for the past 2 years.

The highlight of our stay at the Village was the 2-hour reggae performance by Desmond (and the staff) on Saturday night. Desmond played guitar and was assisted by Nabil, David, Ella and the other staff…….. in between taking orders, serving drinks and food. Desmond plays on Tuesday and Saturday nights – it’s a great chance for guests to have a go on the string base, castanets or just do the ‘chardy shuffle’…a brilliant, fun night!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the front main road are quieter.

We only stayed two nights but really enjoyed the time in Luganville. The apartament is soooo spacious. It looks very stilysh so our surprise was when we found out all the plates, cup, etc was plastic :( The grounds are beatiful. Not a huge place, nice and cozy.
Staff was nice and very helpfull. We had a late afternoon flight and they let us stay in the room with no charge for late check out.
