“Great holiday & memories”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2012

Right from the start we were so warmly welcomed. We travelled with a group that stayed for a week. Bev & Nabil were so accommodating with a wealth of information about local life and site seeing. Rooms were lovely. The music night in the restaurant was fantastic. I loved the staff & their beautiful smiles are a lovely memory for us. We miss them.
Village de Santo made our stay.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a week in July and had an amazing time. The rooms were large and airy and a short walk to town. The managers were fantastic and what really made a for wonderful stay. They were insightful into the local customs and bent over backwards to accommodate us, whether it was lending us there personal flippers for snorkeling, to organizing fresh fish and crayfish to be caught for us. The restaurant had mouthwatering food and we ate here most nights. The local kava night is not to be missed.

Village is probably the best value for money in Santo island. As the other reviews said the rooms are big and quite nice. The pool is small, and sometimes there is not enough place for everyone staying at Village. Therefore a little inconvenient if you travel with small kids. The food is average and there is almost nothing to eat at the breakfast buffet. However I don't want to complain due to fact that the prices are low. The best food you can find in Santo is in french restaurant Le Jarden which is just in town, 5 min by taxi from the hotel.
The trip to the local modern village that the hotel organizes is in my opinion just waist of a holiday time. The beach near the hotel is not suitable for use and we always drove to Champagne beach or Lonoc. All in all the Village a good value for money, especially if you are in Santo for diving, but if you travel with small travelers consider other options.

Room Tip: F10 is the biggest i think.

Thank you for taking the time to review Village de Santo Resort.

Breakfast included is tropical continental- We hope you did get to sample our home-made bread and jams.

We welcome your comments and relayed them to our Chef , our cooked breakfast menu is always on offer for hearty eaters for reasonable cost also.

I am sorry you thought the famous Segond Chanel was the Beach.
I know the girls in house keeping enjoyed watching your two small children having fun in the pool.
I think the whole population of Santo will agree with you in saying the most amazing beaches in the world are a short drive along the newly finished East Coast road or the Champagne Coast as its now known.

Our location is perfect to get out and we encourage our guests to explore what Santo has to offer and where in the world can you get to town for $2 AUD.

Our Restaurant serves modern cuisine with a tropical twist! A very different style of dining.We also practice sustainable tourism this I am very passionate about.I insist we use local produce - organic and fresh.

Thank you so much for highlighting the fact that we are great for the Dive community this is a growing market for Village de Santo Resort.

The accommodation was delightful and the management and staff were very so friendly. They did everything possible to make sure our holiday was perfect. The set-out of the rooms is really functional and the restaurant is of top quality! So much so that we ate there every night! The owners have a great connection with the local community and know a lot about where and what to see. I would recommend this resort to everyone with absolute confidence.
