“Amazing staff. Great resort. Will be back !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014

Upon arriving for our 15 night family stay at Lagoon Beach Resort Apartments, we were thrilled with the choice made to stay here over the xmas/ny period.
The 2 bedroom vila was spacious, extremely clean and well equipped with all the essentials required for self catering during the stay. Both bedrooms had airconditioning as well as ceiling fans, which were very much appreciated. The apartment was serviced by the gorgeous ladies whenever requested.
The resort was of a great size, but not large enough to accommodate for crowds. My youngest could be found in the pool, at the playground or hanging out at Coconut Kids with Annie and Kevin. My oldest would be seen in the lagoon canoeing, snorkelling or fishing. The several hammocks placed around the resort are great for a nap or a little tranquility whilst reading a book.
The restaurant and bar was a great option. After a long and tiring today, Tyrone and his crew are happy to feed you and cater to any needs. Alice and Saro will serve with you with a smile always - even if they are doing a room service trip in the rain!
In the office, you get the chance to have a chat to Abi and Felix - who do an amazing job of keeping their guests happy and entertained. There are board games, dvds and books to loan - if you ever find yourself without something to do.
I would definitely recommend a stay at Lagoon Beach Resort Apartments if ever requiring accommodation in Vila. The resort is a perfect base for sightseeing in Efate. Transport is readily available at the end of the driveway. Town is only a 5 minute drive. The service is always friendly and done with a smile. All the staff are amazing and are happy to meet any requests. We definitely will be back. Tankyu tumas !!

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 3 and 6 yrs) stayed at Lagoon Beach Resort for 5 nights over Christmas 2013, we stayed the previous 4 nights at Holiday Inn.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by all staff and the Manager. The Resort had a very personal feel, staff took time to chat and share their local knowledge.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious and it was great to be able to self cater. However, as the apartments have tiled floors and are adjoining we found that noise from the other apartments travelled, making for some disruptive sleeps.

The food was lovely, as other reviewers have said, the chef was very accommodating and happy to cook to our request. Staff would also bring food from the restaurant to our room which we really appreciated.

The grounds are immaculate and the play area fantastic. Staff were also happy to play with kids anytime.

There are some small supermarkets and a market within walking distance so its easy to grab groceries, or just as easy to catch a bus into Port Vila or the larger supermarket from right outside the resort.

The pool is small but it was never too crowded, we also swam and kayaked in the lagoon which was fun.

We chose to stay here because it looked to be one of the most family friendly places in Port Vila and we werent dissapointed. The resort has the best park area for kids that we saw in Vanuatu and the staff were great. Great location on the lagoon and just a little bit out of Port Vila so you feel like you are actually at a resort away from it all. Getting into and out of Port VIla was simple with buses running all the time. A ride will cost you around $1.50 each way - a ride for our whole family (2 adults, 3 kids) cost less than $5 each way.

The rooms are huge, split over 2 levels with a large kitchen and dining area. Kitchens are fully equipped so if you are looking to cater for your family then I would definitely give the Lagoon Beach a thumbs up. The chef Tyrone is very good so definitely try out his food - he was happy to make pretty much anything and did a great job.

The lagoon isnt great for swimming but there is a great sandy beach area and plenty of other activities for the kids.

My husband and I have just stayed for a week in November. Our apartment on the water's edge was second to none! The views from our deck went right up the lagoon in the gentle morning sun and was the best spot for a beer and champagne before dinner at night. A peaceful paddle in the kayaks up the lagoon before breakfast set the mode for the day. The highlight of our stay was definitely the amazing meals prepared by chef Tyrone Mann!!! He cooked us the best fillet steak that we have eaten in many years. We had requested to try the local Santos Beef and were so pleased that we did, as it arrived cooked to perfection. Every night was a special culinary experience and having owned our own restaurant, appreciated the excellent service from Isobel.
The personal attention from Chris and her staff, especially Felix, made our holiday memorable in every way. The apartment was fabulous and so well equipped with spa, huge shower, king size bed, washing machine and dryer and well appointed kitchenette. Locality to the township of Port Vila was great and the choice of day trips were excellent. The transfer and tour service provided by Glen also extends to day trips and transport to the sister resort on Erakor Island where we enjoyed the Melanesian Feast along with the most outstanding entertainment.
Can't wait to go back and stay at Lagoon Beach Resort! Absolutely Fantastic!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fantastic and well equipped but the apartments on the water's edge are sublime...

Great place to stay if you have younger or older children. The staff were fantastic and always there to assist with whatever you needed. The restaurant offered fantastic meals that were beautifully presented. Kevin and Felix were highlights of the staff and provided wonderful assistance in both local culture and booking tours.

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.

Our family stayed here for 2 weeks and we loved it. Our two pre-school children loved the freedom of exploring the playground, trampoline, pool, lagoon and kyaks. One day they blew up a jumping castle which was a treat! Being vegetarian was easy as the excellent chef Tyrone can adapt any meal you like. Our son is wheat-free and what a relief that Tyrone cooks his chips in GF flour, along with hand made gnocci and other pasta. The food is seriously amazing quality and we are booking our next trip now! The staff are so warm and friendly to children. There are games available for rainy days too.
