From my many questions to the ever patient Anne (owner of Aore Island Resort) through to the end of our stay (with many more questions in between), our stay at Aore was amazing. The staff (Rocky, Michel, Manson, Riley and Rose to name a few) were amazing, warm and friendly and wonderful with the guests.
The food was brilliant, and if you didn't feel like anything on the chef was more than happy to make something up for us. Great entertainment - especially Island Night on Saturday - and a special birthday cake treat for my birthday.
Our fale was gorgeous - right on the beach front with snorkelling on our door step - the boys hardly spent anytime in the pool as reef and variety of fish right in front of us was more than enough to keep them entertained. The huge coral trout that swim under the jetty are fantastic (we've named the big one Taniwha!).
The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and serviced daily. The resort is in two halves with a "family" end and a "couples" end - a great way to ensure people get what they want from their holiday.
The location is idyllic - we stayed in Port Vila one night either side of our trip to Aore and that was more than enough. For all of our sight seeing we went to Santo and did tours with Santo Heritage tours - Champagne Beach, the Nanda Blue Hole and Riri Blue Holes were out of this world.
The ferry ride to Santo runs often enough to never feel like you're far away from anything but if you want to just relax then this is the place to be - you feel like you are on your own island!
We can't rate this place highly enough.
