“A small paradise”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

I have been a lot in Port Vila, but this time I discovered this little paradise. It is a bit outside the city, but still easy to reach by bus or taxi. The name is Tropicana and is located on a lagoon and calm and peaceful. The equipment is up to date and has a high standard.
The owners Martina and Jorg they are very friendly and always helpful. The staff is trained very well and always friendl as well..
What more could you want.

Room Tip: The rooms are equally equipped. We preferred downstairs to be faster on the water.

What a wonderful holiday we had at the Tropicana apartments!! This place is an absolute hidden gem! We stayed in an upstairs apartment that was neatly presented and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. To be able to cook your own meals in your apartment was a bonus as we found food in Vanuatu a bit expensive. We loved waking up each day to look out over the beautiful lagoon and enjoyed having a BBQ on the veranah watching the sun go down. We liked the fact that we were not right in the middle of port Villa, yet could easily get to to town for $1.50 each/each way. The owner Leaticia,was the most helpful and lovely person I have ever met - who went out of her way to assist us and advise us on what tours were the best. Thank you for making our short stay so memorable and we will be back to share another special holiday with you and to share that bottle of wine!! If you are coming to Vanuatu, and want a nice apartment in a relaxed, beautiful and peaceful setting then this place ticks all the boxes!

Room Tip: Loved being upstairs- No10- overlooking beach and lagoon. View was amazing.

The resort is a real diamond in the tropics to stay. I lived between the lagoon, palms and
laugphing kids climbing up the coconut trees and jumping into the water. The staff was in any case helpful very kind and open hearted. Especially the owners Martina and Jorg offered help
whenever I asked for. I closed Nessan the receptionist in my heart. The athmosphere was
extraordinary and relaxing. I was very happy about the clean rooms, the pool and the
beautyful garden. I enjoyed happy meetings on the rustical Nakamal with other nice people
sharing the barbeque. I will certainly come back soon! A Big Thank You to Martina and Jorg!!!

Room Tip: If you want to be close to the lagoon choose rooms no. 1 to 6 or 7 to 12 upstairs.

The room design felt like a true tropical island experience, loved it (so much better than standard hotel/resort rooms). Location was great, just out of Port Vila away from the hustle and bustle when the big cruise ships arrive, but so easy to get to town, markets, shops or restaurants, by catching one of the many little public buses that pass by Tropicana. Great to have air conditioning as an option, as many other places, did not offer air conditioning. The owners and staff were absolutely fantastic, very friendly and helpful. Definitely go back to Vanuatu and stay at the Tropicana.

Wow so disappointed .This was my second trip to vanautu in 12 months
.the second lagoon is not safe for kids.. beach my aunt..
.The staff did move us from an upstairs room as my friend has dicky knees.so that was a plus
.Only it was all down hill from then kayaks but no paddles try and get someone to attend the tour desk wait wait wait.One small thin towel each nowhere to hang wet swimmers etc
18 $ extra night if you want aircon and believe me you do as the fan has only one speed slow beds are so hard and I go camping so I am not sooking
Mad dogs across the lagoon that cried and howled all night
Dont walk down to the bus on the left side as the dogs from the houses will attack you
.Bus rides into town were fun. taxi to and from charged what ever they felt like so go the buses.In all very disappointing so we moved to Iririki for our last night and should have gone sooner.oh and bring your own food but careful of the mircowave and toaster they may bite

We are a family of 5 (3 teenagers) we stayed in an upstairs 2 bedroom apartment and found it nicely appointed and clean. Beds were comfortable with great soft pillows. Camp bed for the third child was a bit uncomfortable though. Overhead fans in each room. Air conditioning and option extra which we didn't avail ourselves of. Large bathroom with hairdryer (which we hardly used - it was too warm as it was). Nice sitting around the pool in the evenings cooling off, just watch out for the crabs coming in from the lagoon! Two comfortable outdoor shaded areas to relax in. Lots of outdoor seating. The Staff were very helpful and friendly, the owner Martina was only too happy to help us organise the tours we wanted to do and did well in recommending the better ones. Very pleased and resulted in an extremely enjoyable holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms overlooked the lagoon except the downstairs ones next to the pool - these had hedges in be...
