We split our visit to Vanuatu between three nights at Breaka's and three nights at Chantilly's - two totally different styles of accommodation and both equally good in their different ways. Chantilly's is a well located and stylish hotel with a nice pool and jetty to stroll out over the bay. The terrace outside the restaurant is nicely cooled by the breezes and a good place to watch the ships come and go from the harbour. The restaurant is amoung the best in Port Vila (read our separate review).
Chantilly's would be ideal if you want a spacious room and to be able to do some cooking for yourself. The kitchen is well equipped and doing your own cooking would be a great way to make the most of the delicious local products from the markets and road-side stalls.
Our only complaint was that the room (No 1) was rather noisy being close to the aircon/compressors/kitchen or something like this. Sitting on the balcony was not exactly peaceful and opening the door to get out there was a bit of a challenge!
It was quieter at night though and our sleep was fine. I would recommend trying to get one of the central and perhaps higher level rooms, which look across the pool area and should be quieter.
