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.

A beautiful resort, what makes it so special are the staff. They are so genuine and really look after their guests. Every single person we had dealings with was lovely. We had garden villa 3. It was beautiful - immaculately clean, air conditioning for comfort, and an outside day bed and chairs with a separate pavilion with a table and chairs. It was very hot when we were there so we didn't sit outside too often but when we did we enjoyed it. We spent as much time as we could swimming and relaxing. On the rainy days we chilled. watched movies and read books. There is a lovely restaurant where delicious meals were served three times a day. You could have also gone to afternoon tea but we never made it as we were always feeling full from our lunch. We used the complementary catamaran, did a beach picnic, a sunset cruise, enjoyed entertainment on various nights, a singer, fire show with two complimentary drinks and snacks, and a village show, all of which we enjoyed thoroughly. We saw a Dugong, and snorkelled the waters at the front of the hotel. We also enjoyed the pool. We had an excellent couples massage as well. The only reason I am not giving this resort a 5/5 is it is a long way from Port Vila (about 40 mins each way) and the road is shocking. Full of potholes. Drink prices are much the same as Australian prices in a resort so a tad on the expensive side. A tip would be go back to Port Vila on the free shuttle on Day 2 of your holiday, go to the Vila Bottle Shop and buy some beers and wine for your room fridge and enjoy some drinks in your villa so you reduce your costs that way. On that same visit (as you would only want to go once on your holiday) pick up your duty free shopping - there are many duty free shops in town - the goods are collected at the airport, near Gate 1 as you clear customs and then you take them onboard your flight home. One final tip: take your reef walkers for the beach. It is crushed coral so it can be a little hard on soft feet.

If there was ever a paradise on earth then this surely has to be it. The resort is absolutely stunning from its location right on the edge of an aquamarine ocean to the whole ambiance, professional service and friendlyness of every single member of staff. From the minute we stepped off the plane at Port Vila to be greeted with cold towels and water in a luxury air conditioned vehicle by our friendly driver. Our villa was spotless and included every amenity we could wish for - our private infinity pool and cabana complete with day bed. We stayed 11 nights and not once were we presented with the same menu for lunch or dinner. The meals were second to none and we would consider the restaurant to be fine dining complete with white table cloths and superb service with entertainment most nights. We cannot fault this resort and will certainly recommend it and hopefully return one day.

The Havannah was something my wife and I had planned for sometime, so expectation was high. We arrived just before New Years and were greeted by the staff at the airport Nelson or Steve will be wearing their helmets to greet you off the plane and drive you back to Havannah. We were met on arrival to Havannah by John and Marilyne and Winnie with a beautiful song before being whisked away to the restaurant for a welcome drink. Got the details finalised for our stay (standard practice) and was shown to our room by John. We chose to go with the Waterfront Villa with it's own plunge pool and were surprisingly close to the restaurant. The room appointments were fantastic and the room was very clean and well maintained. Wifi in the room was just like home and the turndown service from Saima was immaculate, she made it look like day 1 everyday. We had a few requests during our stay and nothing was too much trouble for the staff including Ron aka James or Scott depending on the day....lol. Helen and Melanie in the restaurant were outstanding, always greeting you with a warm smile and a bread basket....lol. The food was amazing and plentiful, the chef takes his role incredibly seriously and is a blessing unto The Havannah. The al a carte menu did provide quite a few options although some more basics would have been nice....I write from a steak and chips perspective and in no way detracting from the quality and variety of foods on offer. The weather held out for us for the most part which fortune was on our side given that the time of our stay was in there tropical storm season. The staff were all so friendly and I recommend the Havannah for any couples wishing for some long earnt peace and quiet. A big thank you to Chris at reservations for making our perfect holiday come together. Raj thanked us for our stay and I did suggest we would be back.... We have now booked for July 2024 return !!!!

The Havannah is a wonderful place for a relaxing getaway. The staff are fabulous and the swimming at your own private beach is divine. The water is stunning and it really is as good as the photos. Don’t miss the cultural show and the local singers as well as the sunset cruise. It really is a special place. Thank you to all the staff for making it such a memorable stay.

We have just returned from an amazing few days at The Havannah. To say it was exceptional is an understatement - our stay exceeded our expectations. From the airport pickup to be greeted by Steve (who had great music taste), a cool refreshing towel after our flight and a cool bottle of water. We were welcomed with a singing duo and a lei and provided a full briefing about the resort over a nice refreshing mocktail. We were then taken to our accommodation (for us was a waterfront villa) and we were instantly relaxed and officially on island time. The food is spectacular with a daily changing menu, the day spa (romantic escape package) which was amazing and all the complimentary activities such as island picnic, fishing, sunset cruise, entertainment were fabulous! The staff are beautiful, friendly and also wanting to please . The Havannah is a piece of heaven and we can’t wait to return!

We weren't staying here but happened to pop in at the chance that we could have lunch in the restaurant, and boy, are we glad they accommodated us The food was AMAZING, the staff were AMAZING the bill was even better...excellent food for a lot less than what we had been paying elsewhere to which half of it was left Couldn't recommend this place high enough and now wish we stayed here instead Will definitely be back for a meal or two before we head home

We have not long returned from a fabulous six night stay at the Havannah. The resort is well located, in a quiet area with a stunning beachfront location. We had a great time snorkeling straight off the beach with turtles, coral and thousands of tropical fish. The reviews about the high level service at the Havannah did not unrealistically raise our expectations, we were extremely well looked after by the whole team. We can't name everyone but would like to especially thank John, Ronald, Winnie, Anita, Lilly, Joseph, Cedrack, Marilynne, Helen, Brian, Maxwell, Raj and Anne. The meals were all delicious, entertainment on two of the nights we stayed was enjoyable. We did the harbour cruise with Brian and enjoyed snorkeling in two locations around Lelepa Island. Overall a fabulous resort, would love to return and definitely recommend.

Such a special place! We stayed for 7 nights at the resort in a pool view villa. Whilst the accommodation, food, views and food were amazing the real highlight was the staff. They were friendly, professional, attentive accommodating with a little fun as well. We did a few walks to the village as well as a round island tour and private picnic. Thankyou Havanna we could not wished for anything more ! :)
