As before Dave and the staff were all very welcoming and friendly, our accommodation was great with A/C, ceiling fan and plenty of hot water. Tea and coffee making facilities (replenish daily). Lovely salt water pool and...

Having stayed at two other highly rated hotels in Luganville I decided to try this place on my last night in Luganville and Vanuatu after 3 weeks. Thought I would treat myself. The location, views and rooms are great. Stayed in top rooms with aircon. The room was clean, well laid out and quiet. A couple of areas I think...

We arrived at the resort at 0930 as our flight was an hour late leaving Port Vila. We checked in at reception and were taken directly to our room.

We recently spent a week here on a diving holiday. For the price this place is a great place to stay in Luganville. The accommodation was clean and tidy. Our room had a view of the bay. Rooms are cleaned, towels replaced and beds are made daily. The restaurant food is reasonably priced and very adequate. The staff and owner...

A great location and very clean and tidy rooms, the staff were always smiling and very helpful. The taxis into town were cheap and very easy to arrange with the staff. The food was ok, nothing over the top but still enjoyable.

My lovely wife and I stayed here last month before our wedding in Bokissa and the experience was rewarding. So much that the bride's youngest sister spent a night there after the wedding and enjoyed it as much as we did. The Resort is far enough out of town to enjoy the peace and relaxation of Santo.

We spent a week here and would choose this place again if we return to Santo. The location is far enough outside of town that it's very peaceful. The wide open green space that leads to the beach gives the whole resort an uncrowded feeling and is quite beautiful. The restaurant is adequate, would have appreciated better choices for the...

This resort is located a little way out of town with a huge green lawn leading down to the beach, a lovely pool and deck area and excellent restaurant. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The staff are very helpful. The villas are standalone providing additional privacy but are still a long way from the water despite being "ocean view"....

Thank you for your very complimentary review. The reason the waterfront villas are kept back a sensible distance from the beach is to give more privacy. The beach can get quite busy with cruising yachts landing their tenders, on the beach, locals casting their nets or fishing lines and families enjoying a day at the beach. We allow the community...
