I know quite a few locals in Vila, and Chantilly’s is a well-respected hotel in the area. The suite that I stayed in here was spotlessly clean and bright with nice views over the lagoon from the bedroom and lounge. The en-suite was a little dark, with dim lighting and only a small high level window vent with a gap just big enough to allow young geckos through (at least this keeps the insects at bay!)
Not the best location if you are expecting a tropical island with a beach on your doorstep; but the pool is refreshing, and a stroll along the small jetty will keep you entertained if you are keen on seeing some aquatic life.
You should eat at the restaurant, the food was excellent, I am sure you will not be disappointed with the quality – both at dinner (great seafood and steak) and at breakfast, where the property boasts the best breakfast in town ( after eating there I would not dispute the claim, certainly not the “in town” bit anyway!)
If you are on a honeymoon style holiday, then you may find something more romantic on the island (see other reviews), after all Port Vila is a Port town; but for a short break, on business, transit on a RTW trip or when connecting to/from the outlying islands then Chantilly’s is a good quality and value option.
