We returned to Lagoon Beach resort for the second time in 2 years. We stayed in June/July again, for 11 nights. We had a wonderful time and can't fault the resort - a great family excape.

I travelled with husband and 3 boys 8-12 years and the the boys just loved it. Thanks Kevin, Felix and the pool table, tale tennis, volleyball, the Kids organised acitivities for some adult time. LLR has great facilities with both a pool and the lagoon with the kayaks etc. I visited some of the big resorts for the day and were very pleased to get back to LLR at the end of the day of the peace, space and relaxation of the area.

We will be back!!!

Room Tip: all rooms have view of the Lagoon and resort.

Being an "anti-resort" person, I was quite nervous about spending 10 days at Lagoon Beach Resort as it was my family's first time in a resort. I was also concerned if my 15 year-old and 17 year-old would like it as I thought the place might be filled with younger children. Anybody with teenagers knows that if their not happy then a miserable time is had by all. Needless to say I need not have worried. My boys loved it - the kayaking, the billiards, the table tennis but most of all the volleyball. They both adored Kevin, Felix and Oliver. There was a good mix of teenagers and younger kids with everyone getting together including staff and the local kids for the 4pm game of volleyball. I loved our apartment - plenty of room to escape from each other but a nice large dining table inside and out for when we wanted to be together. The place was spotless - not even a spiderweb outside. The full-sized kitchen was great. Bed was comfortable. Plenty of drawers in both bedrooms. We were also very grateful for the cafe which provided good value meals but nothing fancy. However there's plenty of great (and expensive!) restaurants in Port Vila. We also utilized the free passes to Erakor Resort. It has a lovely sheltered beach even on very windy days where swimming elsewhere would be unpleasant. Thanks to all the staff at Lagoon Beach Resort for making our stay such a happy one.

Great resort - only 20 units, so not teeming with people. Lovely clean and spacious apartments with separate bedrooms upstairs, lounge and patio downstairs. Self catering, so can fix for yourself rather than always dining out. With 2 families holidaying together and 4 teenagers, it was perfect for us - pool as well as the lagoon to swim in, kayaks, flippers, 4pm volleyball and you're able to borrow their bbq and ask the kitchen to supply the bbq meat/salad pack. There's a washing machine and drier supplied, as well as room service. The staff were lovely and we loved our week there. Handy to Port Villa and the bus, it was the perfect spot for us. The villas looking over the lagoon looked lovely too. Thanks Kevin and Felix for looking after us so well!

We have just returned from a week here. With two teenage boy's we thought a lot about where to stay. This was perfect with many facilities for all ages. The apartments were well equipped enabling the opportunity to cook or at least prepare picnic 's etc. The apartments are also very spacious. We have been to Vanuatu three times and will not look past Lagoon Beach next time.
The Boys had a ball and the interaction with the staff was excellent. The 4pm volley ball games became a cannot miss... The bus at the gate made getting around a breeze. We will be back.. This Is a place for all age families. The villas for couples also looked devine. Thanks Kevin, Abbie and Felix

I stayed here in one of the 2 level apartments which was neat, clean and plenty of room. It’s a peaceful place away from the busyness of town and night time was peaceful & I felt very safe. All amenities were working & the staff was always friendly & happy to go out of their way for me. I enjoyed breakfast & lunch on a couple of occasions & all fresh, I recommend the scrambled eggs or curry, yummy!
I also enjoyed the Coconut Kids Club learning a bit of their language & amazed at how 3 & 4 yrs olds can already understand English too. Annie, their teacher is excellent & very kind & patient with all of the kids there. Sometimes other guest’s kids joined in too & it was great to see them having fun all together.
I got the extra bonus of seeing how the locals make a nakamal, as the resort has been doing renovations to the bar, deck & pool areas & just about finished.
I also found it easy & quick to catch a bus into town standing on the opposite side of the resort & the staff was very helpful with arranging tours for me being picked up & dropped off which made life very easy, as well of best places to eat & shop.

Room Tip: Villa's closest to the lagoon or on the lagoon.

We spent 3 days at the end of a trip to Santo and really appreciated the facilifies on offer. A large airconditioned apartment over two levels with a full kitchen and washing machine/dryer. Travelling as a group of 5 we had plenty of space. The resort grounds are excellent for kids and the food from the Beach Bar was the best we had on our two week stay in Vanuatu. Lala and Glen in particular were fantastic as was Abby. Transport into the town centre is easy with buses outside the door ( much easier than at Poppys where we stayed last year) and the airport pickup arranged with Glenn took us straight to our apatment door, bypassing reception and formalities. We wish we could have stayed longer!

Room Tip: Away from the road close to the lagoon. Not that we noticed any traffic noise at all

We love this place and have visited with our family a few times.This time we stayed in the waterfront bungalow with our own private beach and we were delighted with the room. But the resort itself needs some love.
The pool area is looking very shabby, the restaurant is less than average and we had trouble finding any staff. During our previous stays, the staff were delightful and couldn't do enough for us. This time we hardly saw any staff, apart from a couple in the office on computers.
The restaurant service needs attention. I know this is Vanuatu and we are all relaxed, but twice we ordered food, and they forgot the orders. Another time the restaurant was closed without notice because the staff were sent to another resort. This makes it difficult to feed the kids.
This is a great place to stay with kids as they feel very safe here, but with the lack of staff around the resort and the staff telling us to lock our rooms because of the village nearby, we felt not quite as comfortable as previously. The beds also need replacing, very hard & lumpy.
We understand that there is going to be an upgrade of the resort, so this may improve things, but we still missed the wonderful friendly place we had visited previously.
