Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Port Vila, Vanuatu10 contributions
Covid finally over! Do not skip over Troppo Mystique! Although a tricky place to get to the driver is really only 10 or so minutes from town. The view is stunning - across the lagoon. The hosts (Annie and Garry) are really friendly and accommodating. The units are modern and tastefully decorated -like a real house, not a cookie cutter hotel room or apartment at all. The location is very VERY quiet.

One of the most beautiful places we have stayed. The spot was just magical. Our hosts Annie and Gary were wonderfully helpful and went out of their way to make us welcome and looked after. Can’t wait to come back to visit. The sunsets are simply beautiful.

My Wife and myself stayed at Troppo Mystique over Christmas and New Year. We were welcomed by the owners who diffinatly went the extra mile to make our holiday a very pleasant stay. The room was extremly comfortable and we were impressed with the emmentities, like the full size fridge, the hammocks on the deck, the BBQ on the water front was an amassing place to eat in the evenings and watch the most amassing Sun-Sets. We loved our visits into town on the local and interesting Buses, and meet some lovely people. The local markets are just great, you can buy very fresh fruit and vegetables and the Pineapples and Mangoes are out of this world for taste and flavour. The local shops and cafes give good service and generous servings. Our first visit to Port Villa, and certainly not our last, we would personally recommend Troppo Mystique and Port Villa for a great holiday.

When we arrived at the airport there was was no one there to pick us up, but in fairness we had not received an email from Troppo Mystique confirming our arrival arrangements. We were picked up and transported to the accommodation stopping off on the way to collect some groceries for our stay. Troppo Mystique provides a self contained cabin and that is all. So you will need to stock up on supplies before you arrive. There is no TV only some old DVDs. The accommodation is set in ideallic surrounds just watch out for falling coconuts. The cleanliness of the rooms was not we have come to expect on our travels. We had glasses, dishes plus pots and pans that had not be cleaned properly. We requested that the oven be cleaned before we would cook on it which was done. The BBQs also needed a good clean. The cupboards were dirty and there were spider webs hanging from the ceiling of the unit and behind the bed head. Following a heavy burst of rain our kitchen and lounge room floors were flooded through holes in the roof so we had to move to another cabin. You should consider hiring a car because Troppo Mystique is out of Port Villa. Yes a local bus is available but runs on Vanuatu time not a structured timetable or necessarily a consistent route. The Vanuatu people are really lovely and the children very inquisitive and loads of fun to engage with. Catch the "tinny" to Erakor Island resort the beer is cold and the cocktail list expansive. The food is great but expect the pay the same price you would for a meal in either Sydney or Melbourne (if your an Aussie) in other words it is expensive. It cost us for a 2 course meal plus drinks over $200AU. But the food is good and the service first rate, very down to earth. Our overall experience was disappointing. Firstly because of the time of year that we went, February, super humid. In fact the humidity at times was unbearable. This meant everything felt damp, your clothes, the bedding, the lounges. My wife and I have travelled extensively through Europe, Asia and the South Sea islands this was our tick the bucket list trip to Vanuatu. The water in the lagoon is warm and there are broken bits of coral on the sea floor so be careful where you step. You also need to be aware of inquisitive sea snakes although we did not encounter any, thank God, and we were told there are rather large sea slugs that inhabit the lagoon. Finally, Troppo Mystique is starting to show her age. There is a need for some repair and maintenance to be done by professional trades people not just the local handyman.

Response from Troppo_Mystique, Owner at Troppo Mystique
Responded 22 Feb 2020
It’s with sincere regret & a shame to read, this guest couple were disappointed having chosen Vanuatu & Troppo Mystique as their destination. There is much to read on Trip-advisor & various web sites about gathering information to meet one’s holiday expectations /seasons to suit / budgets to accommodate, so as to happily embrace one’s holiday in one of the most cultural contrasting & adventurous pacific islands. This couple selected Troppo Mystique’s Waterfront Coco Villa -Stylish- Island style - 5 foot veranda- hammocks- Base tariff - $99.00 per night.( Additional for 2nd person.). Guest couple booked through a world-renowned travel/ flight agency. Booking terms stipulate an essential formality prior to guests arrival, as set out below. .BOOKING TERMS.- Important information •Airport shuttle fee: AUD 40 per vehicle (one-way) . YOU NEED TO KNOW. Air conditioning is not provided. WE SHOULD MENTION. Guests must transfer via shuttle to the property. Guests must contact the property at least 72 hours before travel, using the contact information on the confirmation received after booking. This property offers transfers from the airport (surcharges may apply). Guests must contact the property with arrival details before travel, using the contact information on the booking confirmation. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>. Firstly, for clarification, guest couple made no contact with Troppo Mystique prior to arrival. Concerned with booking, three days prior to guests arrival date, Troppo Mystique sent guests an E mail to their confirmed address, requesting flight arrival information. Troppo Mystique did not receive any response from these guests, indicating guests were of ‘No Show”. Troppo Mystique was only contacted via airport after guest’s flight landing. Transfer was promptly organized by Troppo. Fortunately, guests were picked up within minutes. The Villa’s are advertised as self- contained with an airport transfer inclusive of a complimentary supermarket stop-over for guests to stock up family sized fridge / freezer Troppo Mystique Villa’s are advertised with a D.V.D screen. There is an abundance of D.V.D’s available through-out the Villa’s for circulation,with some iconic movies. The Villa’s are prepared by Housekeepers, to best of standards with added touches of island flowers beautifully scattered & arranged in the Villa. The housekeepers are very accommodating local ladies/mothers/ grandmothers from the village. On arrival afternoon, guest reported she “had issues”, indicating to one pot. The pot was clean, but hard-water residue was evident. In the case of any further concerns, all pots / pans were promptly replaced. Regarding stove/ oven- regretfully some crumbs were overlooked by housekeeper at oven bottom door hinge & top surface. These were promptly wiped away in seconds & apologies were conveyed. Some webs had arisen within the interim of Housekeepers completion of duties, which were promptly attended to. Troppo Mystique offers a Housekeeper service if guests desire, to sweep/ mop/ bed make- change sheets- bath towels- etc, Monday - Friday. Guest couple welcomed this service on a occasion. February is renowned as one of Vanuatu’s tropically humid months. Troppo’s unique location on water’s edge generally captures the breeze & the villa’s all have descending cooling fans. However, for guests who prefer air conditioning, there are alternatives to some wonderful air- conditioned resort hotels in Port Vila. February is most climatic, being our tropically wet month. It bought with it this month, some intense down- falls as cyclone Ushi brushed passed our islands shores. Minor damaged was caused creating “a” water leak above guests “Coco Villa’s kitchen area which was mopped by housekeeper. Situation assessed - leak could have been readily fixed - However, Troppo Mystique chose to upgrade guests to “The Lagoon Sunset Villa”- at no additional cost. . Port Vila & around island hosts some excellent Restaurants, with enticing menus of our islands organic fruits / vegetables/ Santo beef. Prices are worldly competitive for such well sought-after quality. In the Villa’s, a Welcome Booklet makes mention of falling coconuts/ wearing reef shoes, which are available to guests in sports cupboard. It’s extremely rare to see any of guests mentioned sea creatures. The amazing warm sea’s, sights of stunning starfish & Nemo’s around the atolls, is to be enjoyed. Local buses are frequent for 150 vatu ( approx. $2.00 ) into town, meanwhile our local bus driver offers door to door service for only a little more. There are also numerous car rental companies. They will deliver & pick-up rental vehicles to/ from Troppo’s guests door, as the guest couple engaged in booking for part stay. On departure day, guests were provided with later check-out. A complimentary transfer to airport, was also provided as guests declared their holiday budget was unable to meet the return transfer. Troppo Mystique trusts upon the explanations to this posting, a continued enthusiasm will always prevail for anyone wishing to visit & explore our unique beautiful pacific island.

We stayed at Troppo Mystique for 7 days over Xmas, and it was exceptional. No busy resort, it was a great stay for adults, with 4 villas on the property.The owners are very hands on and knowledgeable of the island. Lovely sunsets, with boat trips to Erakor Island and the Warwick for dinner and drinks. A little removed from Port Vila but that was a bonus for us. All the amenities you could want, including a fully equipped kitchen which was super handy. All in all a great stay was had for a great budget.

We stayed here for a week and it is fabulous! The owner is particularly helpful and has a great knowledge of the island. Boats can pick you up to take you across the bay for dinner at a couple of restaurants which is quite special. The island is worth exploring and it is surprisingly lush. The town has all you need food wise and be sure to get your fruit and veg at the local market. So much choice. Beware of some of the roads though many potholes! Sunsets are fabulous.

We spent 11 wonderful nights at Troppo Mystique. No swimming pool, no restaurant, no organised activities – simply a perfect secluded get away with just 4 self-contained bungalows on Erakor Lagoon. We stayed in Coco Villa with absolute lagoon views from our huge patio and bedroom. A 40 metre walk across the grass and we were in the clear, warm waters. The hosts, Annie and Garry, were terrific; they gave us local information and stopped by for an occasional chat or to drop off some papaws. Annie recommended Remo, who picked us up from the airport, for any trips we wanted to take. He took us out and about for a day at a very reasonable price. The villa had everything we needed including a fully equipped kitchen and a very comfortable king size bed. We shopped in Port Vila which has everything you need to self-cater. We enjoyed preparing our meals in the evenings to no particular timetable and relaxing with a glass or two of wine watching the sun set over the lagoon. We couldn’t ask for more, it was a total chill out for us. Thanks Annie and Garry.

We had 10 beautiful days in this tranquil environment, swimming & Kayaking everyday in the beautiful blue waters of the Lagoon. As 2 ladies in our fifties we could not fault the facilities which met all our needs and more. Beautiful views from the deck for sunset bubbles. Hosts were simply amazing which created a very relaxed environment. Fantastic Sea life and loads of fun things to do. Photo's are as you see them perfect paradise. Airport pick up Drivers pick you up on time with no problems and very helpful all round. Gardeners will drop you in a paw paw occasionally which is delightful. Tip - Pick up a local sim card (very cheap) from the airport this way you can ring and organise activities. Erakor island have a fabulous day spa which we arranged our massages and they pick you up by boat and drop you back again after cocktails and or dinner. We are looking forward to coming back to paradise again.
