“Fantastic location & incredible views!!”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

I stayed at the hotel on my own & found the experience was fantastic. I had a harbour view room on the 4th floor which had the most amazing views. The room was very comfortable & had a really comfortable bed. The hotel amenities were wonderful & the staff were helpful & always happy & willing to assist. The location was very convenient & all facilities required were within walking distance. I must add, that the room was very quiet & there was no noise from other people in next rooms, which for me, is important.I would highly recommend this hotel & look forward to returning in the not too distant future!!

This was a fishing trip for two couples. We were more than happy with the hotel. It was centrally located so evrything was within walking distance including, cash machines, car rentals, sports bars, shopping, restaurants. The staff were friendly & helpful. The panorama rooms were lovely with a beautiful view of the harbour. Breakfast was great with a huge selection, we had to order 'early' breakfasts for 3 morning which were . Happy hour in the Hemisphere bar with complimentray canapes suited us down to the ground. Not really a lot to do for kids...just the pool really. Our teenagers would have been bored. The casino is small & basic but in keeping with the decor of the hotel. I would highly recommend this spot!

Room Tip: Definitely the panorama suites. You have much better view than the other rooms.

We had a wonderful holiday at the Grand. Our room was a Panorama Suite and the view was absolutely amazing. The staff should be congratulated on their warm welcoming smiles and nothing is too much trouble attitude. Most of our holiday was spent chilling in the pool and walks to the shops. The hotel is in the best location for getting around.
Breakfast, which was included, was adequate and even had an egg station for omelettes etc. The lunch special by the pool was my favourite.... S & P caesar or fish & chips or rolls were lovely. Iced water was provided as requested always with a smile and little chat. Maybe management could provide the pool staff with a cap to protect against the very hot sun!! You couldn't go past the steak for dinner...the best we have ever tasted.
The new management team are doing a great job!!!! The only thing I think needed is more towels in the bathrooms but were always supplied if requested.

My husband and I booked a deal with a free upgrade to a Panorama View Suite which was absolutely breathtaking. Amazing views, so clean and great facilities in room. All the rooms have balconies looking over the harbour.

Staff were always on hand to help. The pool is lovely and was never crowded while we were there. You can also take the ferry across to Iririki Resort and use the facilities there (some watersports complimentary) as they are owned by the same company.

Breakfast was included in our rate and, while not mind blowing, it was certainly tasty and sufficient to start our day. We also enjoyed their $10 lunch deal.

They were preparing to open a day spa on the premises when we were staying there, I assume it is open by now.

The best part about staying here is it's location to downtown Port Vila and the casino! It's only small but we had some really fun nights here playing on the $1 roulette and blackjack tables. So much fun!!!

Would definitely come back!

Room Tip: Get a panorama view room if you can.
