“Very peaceful accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

We have just returned home from staying at mangoes, if you are after a friendly peaceful resort (eg. no kids) then this is the place to stay at...the staff are friendly and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your stay, The boys behind the bar are awhesome, always there to brighten up our day and wonderful smiles in the morning.

If you aren't a lover of the heat, then we suggest you have the a/c while we didn't switch on the a/c at all while we were here it a good to have "just incase" there are ceiling fans in the dining/kitchen/entrance of the bures and the "bedroom" this is all very open plan.

We enjoyed our stay in port villa however we found management rude at times... while the staff here are amazing over our stay most pleasant and enthusiastic just what you need at brekfast time and after a tiring day of adventure!

Rooms were always cleaned and staff left some beautiful flowers in our room every day

Carlos, the 2 richards,Roys & Karl are a barrel of laughs!

With tours try going with the locals (eg. hire a bus for a day you will get your money worth) we hired a bus for a day to go around the island from 8am-6pm which cost us about AUD100.00 he took us into placed the bigger tourist companies didnt go to and explained thing alot better.

Casscades are amazing we highly recommend going"(stayed there for 3 hrs just swimming around and exploring),along with the blue lagoon, snorkeling is beautiful

Management of mangoes however need to step back a little and review their customer service when speaking to people as it can come across rude

Just got back from a great week in Port Vila where we stayed at Mangoes in a lagoon view bungalow with private pool. We chose Mangoes based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our bungalow directly overlooked the lagoon and felt very private, was very clean and had nice little extra touches such as fresh flowers every day. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Restaurant food and service were both excellent. Location of resort is good - a 15 minute walk into town or a short bus ride (buses are only 150vt per person). You can also book tours at the hotel every morning, and both that we went on were worth it (Mele Cascades and the Village Feast on a Friday night).

Note that Vanuatu is not cheap so expect to pay the same prices as home. We ate out a few times in town and particulary enjoyed the steak at Le Cafe du Village next to the Grand Hotel.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a lagoon room view - also we felt that paying the extra for a private pool was wel...

My husband and I have just returned from Vanuatu and I felt the need to write a review for the gorgeous Mangoes Resort. Mangoes is an excellent place to stay when visiting Port Vila. It is clean, comfortable and the staff are the most welcoming and genuinly happy people that you could ever wish for. The moment you come into the Resort you are welcomed by the most lovely of staff. Eating here is a pleasure as the food is fantastic, tasty and always fresh but again it is the staff that create an atmosphere that cant be faked. We had a fantastic time in Port Vila and it was always nice to come in from a days adventuring to the beautiful refreshing pool(s). The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. Ths lovely ladies that service the rooms are extremely coutreous and friendly. I would highly recommend staying at Mangoes, well worth the view as well. Wow

Room Tip: Get a room with a Lagoon View. Well worth it.

We stayed at Mangoes Resort a couple of times through the year and really enjoyed the facilities. The individual huts are really good, each with its own verandah. The 3 pools give you options and 1 is suitable for lap swimming.

The food, drinks and service was excellent and the staff cleaning / tidying the rooms were just lovely.

The resort is out of town a bit, which was wonderful and only a short bus or taxi ride in at little cost.

But for us, the crowning glory is the helpfulness of both the staff and the management. My husband lost his wallet and the management were incredibly helpful - not only did they send staff out to look for the wallet, but they did everything they could to make sure that he had funds to keep him going and to get home safely.

On his last trip, my husbands taxi failed to turn up to get him to the airport for the 6am flight back to Sydney. When this was realised, The manager himself drove my husband to the airport - such wonderful way & above the normal service.

Mangoes is a beautiful resort, peaceful and private, I found rooms to be a bit basic but still very clean. Staff and food were faultless...I would have no hesitation in returning or recommending a stay here!
