My husband and I loved Eratap Beach Resort. From the moment Robert picked us up in the bus, the interesting ride out to the beautiful resort, the warm welcome by Tony (the owner) and his staff, the fantastic, lovely, private, spacious, spotless Villa's and a view too beautiful to forget.
We loved Eratap so much that we cancelled our booking we had at another place. Thanks to Tony for his kindness in making it possible for us to stay on. We'll loved Fiona (the Chef's) cooking, (Jacob hasn't stopped talking about the magnificent breakfasts)! The staff are lovely, always gentle and helpful. The "couple's massage" is a must, it's so relaxing and soothing. Thanks to Robert, Stephen, Andre, Carlo, Walter, Sharon and Wendy to name a few for making our stay so wonderful.( It's taken me ages to get to writing this review so some staff may have changed).
The pool is really nice, everything you'd expect from a tropical island but we loved the ocean. Paddling around in the (free of charge) canoes, where we explored nearby little islands with private pretty beaches, tropical plants and gorgeous shells. The water is a splendid turquoise blue and you can see the tropical fish and even the odd Sea Snake (they can't really hurt you)! You can use the snorkelling equipment and literally a hop step and jump into the sea to explore the amazing sea life.
A trip to the nearby village is a must. The children are so happy and they squeeled with delight at having their photo taken! How refreshing to see unspoiled children munching on fresh coconut and laughing at simple pleasures. We were even given a whole hand of fresh bananas to take with us when we left. Some of these people from the village work at the resort and it amazed me to see the way they look after the tourists, it's a credit to them, they are lovely people, initially shy, 100% trustworthy and happy huge smiles!
Some people whinge and whine if everything is not "what they think perfect". My suggestion is to approach Vanuatu in a relaxed, carefree and modest manner and you will enjoy your experience.
I highly recommend Eratap Beach Resort, you'll be glad you stayed there. We are & it's a holiday we will always remember with a smile.
