We have just returned from a 3 month working holiday in Port Vila and we chose to stay at Lagoon Beach Resort Apartments. The apartment was perfect for an extended stay with a small family. The fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer and furnishings meant that we had everything we needed to feel like we were at home, and the resort offered everything we needed to feel like we were on holidays!
Our kids loved the lagoon for exploring and one of our favourite things to do was to take the kids down to the lagoon beach at sunset and let them play while we took in a glass of wine and the view. There are kayaks at the resort that you are able to use whenever you like to explore the lagoon further.
The pool was also a huge hit with the kids and it was always clean and well maintained and never overcrowded, but by far the most popular thing with our kids was the awesome playground. From the huge trampoline to the swings and the fort built into the beautiful trees, our kids spent hour after hour playing there.
The location of the resort was great too. Close to town without being in it. It was easy to grab a bus from the resort into town but if you choose to hire a car there is parking right outside your apartment.
As we were in Port Vila for such a long time we did get a chance to explore the restaurants around town as well as visit other resorts for a meal but the food that the resort's chef Tyrone puts up is first rate, and far better than some of the larger, well-known resort's food. The menu is there as a guide, but he is more than happy to adjust anything on it to suit you or your kids, and if you're happy to just let Tyrone suggest the evenings meal by way of the specials, he will never disappoint.
Abi, the resort's manager was amazing, she worked tirelessly to make us feel at home just as she did with her regular holiday guests. Also reflected by the treatment of our family and friends who visited us at the resort.
Felix looks after the day to day operation of the resort and is worth his weight in gold. On more than one occasion he put aside his own personal plans and stayed beyond his normal work hours in order to make sure we had a great time. Lagoon beach resort will not disappoint when planning your trip to the South Pacific, the people make the difference.
