The rooms are quite large, fresh flowers, king size bed (very comfortable for me), air conditioned (no extra charge as per earlier posts), ceiling fan, small kitchen (microwave, bar fridges and 2 ring stove etc). The rooms were clean and tidy and cleaning staff were friendly, more than happy to help. Our hot water heat (each room has a separate one) stop working and they had a handy man fix it within an hour. If you want wifi or internet can be set up for you quickly or just use the wifi in the restaurant.
The restaurant, set over the lagoon was very scenic, with numerous fish and star fish. A small but diverse menu and specials every day. The best food we had during our 8 day stay in Vanuatu. Price wise it was very reasonable for Vanuatu. We had friends from another resort stay for dinner and they commented how lucky we were. My son was sick for a day and at no extra cost made special requests and brought food to our room. Nothing was to much trouble if it was within the staffs power. The complimentary breakfast consisted of tropical fruit (paw paw, banana, grape fruit (very sweet), banana, custard apple etc), tea, coffee and 2 slices of toast. You can also buy additional items at reasonable cost. Note we could not find fresh milk in Port Vile, (UHT readily available).
Reception can organise a bus into town for 150 vatu pp (so very cheap) 10 minutes or Hide Away Island 400 vatu about 20 minutes.
Do not forget to go for a paddle on the free canoes.
Great place to relax or a base to explore from.
Thanks for great stay.
