“Surprise upgrade :-)”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Mangoes was double booked so we were upgraded to the flash new The Terraces next door. Same company and shared resturant. Really good food and the best steak of your life.
We booked pool rooms and I would advise checking if yours will be private as some were not.

We stayed at Mangoes for 7 nights over the new year period. The resort was great, clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The light breakfast included was great (you had three different choices) with the option to upgrade to the rest of the menu and only pay the difference. You can walk to town easily in 15 mins but you are away from any of the town noise.
Would highly recommend this resort to those looking for a children free resort in Port Vila.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room (we had room 4)

We stayed at Mangoes resort for 5 days over the Christmas holidays. Our room was lovely and clean, spacious and insect free. We had our own private pool just outside the door. Everything was kept clean and well maintained and the staff were lovely and helpful. The restaurant at Mangoes is the best on the island in my opinion and the lobster I had for Christmas dinner was delectable. Thanks everyone for looking after us so well.

We stayed at Mangoes in December 2013 for two nights before flying to Espiritu Santo. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, from welcoming us to giving us directions into town and serving in the restaurant.

Our fare was everything we needed - spacious, comfortable and cool thanks to the fans and shutters. The bathroom was a little dated, but clean and in working order and the small fridge had room for all our drinks/snacks. The bed was big and comfortable and there was a lockable wardrobe for our valuables. The balcony was lovely for sitting outside with a book.

We used all of the pools at Mangoes and they were all fantastic. There weren't many people staying while we were there so we could always get a spot to sit and relax by the pool - i'm not sure how easy this would be if the hotel was at full capacity though.

The food in the restaurant was very tasty and reasonably priced. The included breakfast had three options to choose from, with the choice to order other things from the menu for an additional fee.

Mangoes is about a 10 minute walk into Port Vila so quite convenient to access tours, shops and restaurants.

Overall a very pleasant stay and we would return.

We stayed in the lagoon view pool bungalow as a romantic treat to end or Vanuatu holiday and were absolutely in love with the room and view. The resort's resident cat ' Spike' was adorable and made the stay feel quite personal. We didn't use any of the three pools as we had a private plunge pool but they looked lovely and the staff put fresh flowers around the resort daily. Also enjoyed the food in the restaurant however it was a bit expensive.

Room Tip: the lagoon view pool bungalow is definitely worth the splurge!

We just came back from a lovely stay at Mangoes Resort, where we were upgraded to an apartment in The Terraces, their joint resort next door. Everything was perfect, the rooms were amazing, with an outstanding view and the food at the Mangoes restaurant was by far superior to the rest of Port Vila, and reasonably priced with really friendly service. Would recommend this resort to everyone!

Room Tip: Quiet resort even when they're fully booked so you cant go wrong. The private plunge pools are a...

We have stayed at Mangoes twice and on both occasions have had a great time. Not too far from Port Vila to walk in or you can get a mini bus at the front gate. Quiet and clean rooms with a couple of pools to swim and relax in - and a great restaurant. I remember on one stay that the coconut crab which was for dinner got away and there was an intensive search for it - gotta love the islands!!

Room Tip: All good - but lagoon view is great
