“room to improve”
Reviewed 2 April 2010

We have just stayed for ten days at the PALMS which is now owned by Holiday Inns? The hotel is quite old and could do with a good fix up as most of the other resorts and hotels have been renovated. Rooms are clean and service staff very friendly but the catering and bar service really needs to be improved for this place to say they are 4 Star plus rated. Drinks are expensive ($16 cocktail or $10 beer) so dont hang around the pool bar too long. Food was average with better choices and cheaper prices in town. The casino is something out off a 1960's RSL and not worth a look.
Apart from that the hotel is quiet and the with a nice veiw over the lagoon is very relaxing and enjoyable.

My Adult daughter & I stayed for 5 nights had a fantastic time very relaxing, Staff were happy and helpful. It was the best layed back holiday I have had. The Casino wasn't much but it didn't worry us. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. Food was fantastic and about the same as you would pay for a restaurant meal in Australia. Alcohol was expensive but me realised that they use full nips in there drinks not half nips as in Australia so they probably were not expensive if you take that into account. Close to town. I would recommend to any one. If you are a rush rush person dont go to Vanuatu.
Towms people and Islanders are happy & friendly . Must go to La Lapore Island tour snorkeling was fantastic. Goodies in town has best exchange rate. Resort exchange rate is about 10 cents less that at Goodies. And they charge a 5% surcharge for credit cards.
