“Loved our stay at Pacific Lagoon”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

As a 3 person party looking for a 2 bed apartment on Efate, Pacific Lagoon ticked all our boxes. We stayed in a sea view apartment and it was a wonderful, peaceful tranquil week away. Chris was very helpful in recommending places to go and things to see and his team of staff are all very efficient and friendly. We made the most of the free kayaking and proximity to the water. The trip to Erakor Island on the little ferry is a must, just a short stroll along the waters edge (when the tide is out). We definitely made the most of happy hour on the island!
The facilities at Pacific Lagoon are basic but all you need to enjoy Island Life! The local Vila markets are fantastic to enjoy local produce and the supermarkets are well stocked to make sure you get full use of the kitchen and bbq facilities at the apartments.

Great place to stay at a reasonable price, thanks Chris.

My girlfriend surprised me with this booking. We decided to do self catered in an effort to save more money that could then be spent on tours and attractions. She had booked a garden view room but we were upgraded to lagoon view. I must say WOW, the view was great straighr across to Erakor Island resort. The manager was so friendly and chilled. The staff were lovely. Chris gave us many great recommendations on where to eat and what to visit. With a great library of books and DVD's for when the weather turned a bit nasty. The units could do with a renovation to modernise but really we had no issues with anything! Some brighter lights in the living room would be nice though!.

Room Tip: either garden view or lagoon view is good

A great base to enjoy Port Vila- easy access to town on public transport; step off your porch and you are in the lagoon; pool; great BBQ area; and full facilities to cook for yourself if you so choose. Our family have stayed here a few year back when our children were in their mid teens and now in their in their twenties we just recently came back with their partners in tow as well. So relaxing, easy going, affordable, enough room to spread out, and close to tourist attractions and amenities for everyone to do their own thing. The staff were very helpful- especially organising airport transfers, car hire, choosing tours and even advise on where to get our groceries. I really felt like I had a holiday!

Room Tip: Apartments on the front have fantastic view of water, but ones behind have great garden and bit more...

I am a little reluctant to write this review as I don't want too many people to enjoy our little slice of paradise (for selfish reasons of course). We have just come back from our 3rd time to Vanuatu (and PLA) in 16 months....we just can't get enough of this place!!! PLA is a fantastic place to stay in Port Vila - it is located far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the main centre but is close enough to all the shops and attractions so that you can see all that Port Vila has to offer. Buses can be caught from the top of the driveway to anywhere you so desire (ask Chris what a reasonable rate is - he'll put you right). Set on Erakor Lagoon, PLA has the most amazing outlook/setting and the laid back surroundings provide for one very relaxed holiday. If you like sun, sea, snorkelling and snoozing then PLA is the place to go. The facilities are great - clean and tidy self contained units and also the use of a barbeque area, hammocks and kayaks. The ONE thing that stands out for us is the staff! Chris and his staff are fantastic - and will make your trip even better! All of the staff are friendly and will go above and beyond to make sure that you enjoy your holiday. I could go on for hours and hours but will let you decide for yourselves when you go there. Will we go back again.....for sure! We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Port Vila. Paul and Nikki

Pacific Lagoon Apartments are fantastic accom for trip to Vanuatu. Spotless, very well appointed with TV, video, fridge, stove, etc. Very comfortable almost new beds/bedding. Awesome hot showers all the time. Crystal clean swimming pool & very relaxing pool surrounds and lawn areas. Free kayacks and easy water access. The lagoon is virtually at your doorstep so can swim with no hassle whenever you want. Very beautiful outlook across lagoon and out to ocean. Manager Chris is very helpful re information, activities and a very nice person. We stayed in a 2 bedroom which was serviced daily. Full marks to Chris and staff, we had the most awesome holiday.

I took my mother on her first overseas trip at 75 to PLA and she loved it. As it was low season we were upgraded to a waterfront apartment which was great. The apartments were cleaned daily, the pool well maintained and Chris and his team were on hand to answer any questions

Felix and his staff make you very welcome and were very helpful in organising the tours. The accomodation is like being at home. Looks like a lot of the white goods ahve been imported staright from Australia. Amenities and food excellent and only a short trip into Port Villa.
