Our recent stay at Mangoes was in a Lagoon View room, which I'd highly recommend for having a bit more outdoor privacy. The resort in general is just lovely, beautiful rooms, excellent restaurant, friendly & helpful staff, well located, there's really only good things I can say about it. But I'm really glad we had a lagoon view because we had two days of solid rain during our stay in Port Vila, & if we hadn't been able to sit outside in the privacy of our own covered balcony, it would have driven us nuts. The rooms were 'romantically' lit, i.e. not overly bright, so it was much nicer to be outside reading & enjoying the view.
I great appreciated Roz's information about malaria risk in Vila, which saved us an expensive visit to the travel doctor. Having the daily access to the tour organiser was really helpful, even though we only did one tour, she was more than happy to help with general advice & information.
We never noticed any roosters, so slept very well on their very large & comfortable beds. The swimming pools aren't huge, but given we always had them to ourselves, there was plenty of room, & they were cleaned & 'flowered' daily. The restaurant was excellent, lots of options for breakfast & the two nights we ate there the dinners were delicious. Whilst a room safe would have been nice, the lockable cupboard did the job, we never had any security concerns anyway, in Mangoes or in Vila in general. We'll definitely stay at Mangoes again if we return to Vila.
