Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We loved our stay at Pacific Lagoon Apartments. Great family friendly location. The manager Chris and all his staff are so welcoming and helpful. Great location, close to town, beach and lagoon. Our children 1 and 3.5years had a fabulous time - and so did we, very relaxing! Excellent value for money - apartments are clean and tidy and serviced daily.Highly recommend if you wish to self cater.

Had one week here with three kids. Very clean and great location, and good value for money. Great pool and views if you have a lagoon view room but the garden view rooms would be good as well. Great pool. Great place to use a base if you are doing lots of day trips around the island of to other islands. If you want a great, honest and energetic bus driver for a day trip Kalep is your man. Chris at reception has his number. Picks you up from the apartment and he is yours for the day.
Cheers

Where to begin! The location on Erakor lagoon is better than any other resort I have visited, and this was my fourth trip to Vila. The bungalows are spotlessly cleaned each day, the staff are so welcoming and incredibly helpful. Chris the manager, Anthea on the desk, to Happy the nightwatchman and Roy the gardener who quietly provided fresh coconuts for us daily...we were living the dream. There were 3 of us this trip, 3 girls instead of family. My two friends, in their 60's, loved PLA so much they are coming back next year..this time hoping to stay for 3 weeks! They felt one week wasn't enough and I agree. It is more relaxing being in self-contained bungalows, as you can choose to eat out or cook in if preferred. Breakfast was either fruit platter at home or Jill's Cafe for the best bacon and eggs, and hash browns made with real potato, (or visit Nambawan Cafe for no.1 coffee!). Home then for a swim, and a champagne and cheese platter overlooking the lagoon. Dinner, either out or in..depending on the mood. As the other reviews will tell you, B buses are so easy and fun to travel in. The Beach House is new and up the road towards Pango Village and has wonderful food, or Erakor Island for afternoon cocktails or dinner. Our favourite place downtown for dinner is Chill. Whether you book a bungalow on the lagoon or garden, sitting by the lagoon is accessible to both. Staying here has always resulted in an amazing holiday! Can't wait for next year! Look no further for accommodation in Vila, highly recommended by all three of us.

Room Tip: Whether you choose lagoon or garden, the lagoon is accessible to both. Whether you wish to sit by it...

We spent 10 days here, 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The location was perfect with the lagoon at your doorstep and Erakor Island very accessible as well. The apartments were basic but we knew that when we booked and they had everything we needed and were serviced daily. The facilities suited our needs perfectly.

Chris, Anthea and all the staff are incredibly friendly, helpful and really go that extra mile to accommodate everything for you. We had a wonderful time made more special because of our experience at Pacific Lagoon. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else for a family holiday in Vanuatu.

Thanks again - Sue, Stuart, Danni and Matt

PS. Lukem you!!!! :) :) :)

We stayed at the Pacific Lagoon apartments in mid June and had a fabulous time.
The apartments were exactly what we wanted- spending afternoons on the balcony overlooking the lagoon was beautiful and grabbing a kayak in the mornings at high tide was a highlight and being able to self cater. A short bus trip up the hill takes you to Au Bon Marche for food and vino supplies- and for the meat eaters out there, the steaks from the supermarket are to die for. The BBQ by the pool was used frequently!!

The staff were excellent- Chris and Anthea really friendly and so helpful with arranging day trips and even our overnight trip to Tanna to Mt Yasur- this was incredible.

Phil our driver picked us up from the airport and he was terrific, we hired him for the the day to drive us around the island, stopping at roadside stalls for fruit, stopping by the Blue lagoon, and other amazing swimming and snorkelling spots.


We can't wait to book another trip and highly recommend Pacific Lagoon apartments.
We will be back!!

We stayed here with our young son in one of the Garden units.
The staff were friendly and helpful and Chris the manager went out of his way to ensure that we were looked after including running us into town to the atm after they were out of service at the airport when we arrived. He also helped us to get in contact with medical services when my wife was sick.
The lagoon is metres from the units and full of beautiful coral, fish and starfish. My son and I spent hours snorkelling up and down the reef. Just spectacular.
The units are clean and well maintained with everything you need to prepare food and cook for yourselves.
A great place to stay with families if you want to spare yourself the manufactured culture of resort venues. Chris (the manager) will help you to get a 'real Vanuatu' experience and can also provide great advice on how to get the most from your time in Vila.
Very relaxing and very pleasant.

Room Tip: Avoid the resorts, this is a much more realistic Vanuatu experience. Chris the manager can help you...
