The description on Hotels.com is technically correct but a bit misleading. This facility clearly was intended to be apartments for longer stays by visitors and are listed as having a kitchen with pans and utensils (true) with stove top (true - but it is a gas stove and there is no gas so it is useless) plus to my greatest...

We were given the Penthouse Apartment. It is huge. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large living, entry and kitchen/dining. Small balcony running the width of the apartment on the street side. We used the bedroom at the rear of the apartment and found it quiet. The ensuite is odd in that it only has a bathtub, no shower. There is a...

We stayed for 16 days over the Christmas and new year period. We rented two two bedroom units and were really happy we chose to stay at the Mariner Apartments. The units are self contained with gas cooktop, oven, microwave, fridge etc. The units were clean and tidy and the canopy beds were incredible. The air conditioning was amazing! House...

The apartments should really be classified as 2.5 to 3 star, here's some of the things we noted: Broken and rotting pool chairs we were supplied with 2 bath towels and no hand towels for three people (we requested an extra bath towel which we got, and were given a tea towel as a hand towel Loose kitchen sink mixer...

I've been to Port Vila many times for work but this was my first time to stay here...and it most certainly will not be my last. When walking in I was immediately struck by the gorgeous view from the window. The room is beautifully laid out and has everything you need. It's an easy stroll into town and is excellent...

We stayed at the Mariner in May 2016 for two weeks in a two bedroom family suite. These are serviced apartments so a fully equipped kitchen, large fridge, microwave, gas stove along with appropriate cooking utensils, pots/pans and crockery was welcomed. There is no room service or restaurant but being centrally located is easy walking distance (5 min walk) to...

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and the welcome was excellent. We had towels that looked like swans on our bed wand flower petal sprinkles all through the room. Fantastic views over the bay and Irkki Island. The staff were excellent and helpful. Close walk into town and up to a supermarket. Would stay here again.

I stayed here for 7 nights and overall was happy with experience. There was an issue with the hot water the first 2 days i was there but with the help of Willy we got it working until the plumbers could come out and give it a service. After that no problems at all. The location is great, walking distance...

Mariner apartments has an okay location at one end of Port Vila. If you get a top floor apartment there's a nice view over Iririki Island and you can see the cruise ships as they come in as well. The room is big and well equipped with everything you would need in a self contained apartment. It is close to...
