We stayed two nights and found it to be a nice clean comfortable hotel. It's close to town and easy to get anywhere with all of the van/bus that pass every few minutes. We found the bed to be exceptionally comfortable.

I stayed overnight to catch a connecting flight to Santo. The hotel was great! The room was as advertised with lovely bay facing views. Very quiet and tranquil and very close to the airport. The staff were lovely and helpful, accommodating a late checkout for a night flight I had. I'd stay there for longer if in Vila again.

Clean neat and tidy with a great view! Staff helpful with quick check in and check out. Free water sports was an added bonus with easy access into the clean water right out the front of the hotel. A little bit out of town but only a short walk to near by cafes and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic location in Port Villa. Stayed in one of the suites that front onto the harbour. 10-15 walk to the centre of town. Plenty of restaurants and shops in walking distance. Needed to be careful walking because the footpaths are all under repair (assume they were damaged by cyclone Pam). Staff were very friendly and helpful.
