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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The staff were so friendly and hospitable. Everyone from the front desk manager (Mayank) to the chefs, restaurant staff, and room maintenance and cleaning team. Paul was very helpful trying to organise a tour for me, and booking other activities and a taxi. And the restaurant food was superb - the curries were brilliant as were the home-made chutneys, sambals and breads. I can’t wait to return.

Hotel's Favourite
Everything was wonderful starting from being greeted with a shell necklace by a kind man in traditional Vanuatu dress (whose name I forgot but who we’d also like to highly recommend and thank), to getting help with our luggage and having our rooms serviced every day. Everyone who works at the Holiday Inn is extremely kind and friendly. Fiona at breakfast does a great service, as well as all the other ladies there and the coffee and breakfast buffet is to die for! Those breakfasts really always were the highlight of our day! Nothing quite like a fresh coconut in the morning and a Cappuccino! The facilities are amazing too. We thoroughly enjoying swimming in the gigantic pool, kayaking and hitting the gym. The view over the lagoon and palm trees and white Sandy beach is stunning too! Finally, I would like to give my special thanks to Allan at reception, who went above and beyond all expectation to help me out one day when I lost my jacket and needed to get a local phone card to call australia. He even escorted me to town free of charge and helped me out there! What a star! Finally, the Melanesian feast was wonderful, as was the fire show on Thursday! To sum it up: everything was wonderful and we are ever so appreciative! Thanks a million, Ash and Laura

We had one night in this hotel before a flight to Tanna Island. A really nice retreat. The room we had was very big, great bed and the food and hotel amenities were great. The property is very big and a great place to exercise in a such a lush environment. Very friendly staff. Can highly recommend.

This hotel is definitely ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 star not ⭐️⭐️⭐️. From the presentation and taste of the food is 5⭐️the options and service of the staff are exceptional everyone of them. The pool staff, housekeeping , front desk, bar areas ,serviceman and groundsman again 5⭐️. Nothing was ever a issue to help us in any way we needed, and they would go the extra mile in all departments. The managers were so friendly and welcoming also. The location is so close to everything but you also feel Like your on your own little island sitting by the lagoon or pool. This place is family friendly, couples friendly, and overall exceptional service. They have so many activities and many options of water-sports too. We got to experience tasting kava, Melanesian food , a local village dancers and being educated on the culture, to fire dancing. All air conditioned rooms, wifi and beautiful views outside your room. They have everything here in the hotel you need. Highly recommend holiday Inn. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
