What a view to wake up to

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 29 July 2023
We stayed here our first three nights after arriving in Port Vila and LOVED it. Highly recommend paying the bit extra to have a waterfront bungalow - we had #6 (two bedrooms) I think and it was just heaven having the water lapping just 15 steps out from the back sliding door. Location was so peaceful and about 5 drive into the centre of Port Vila. The bungalow itself is quite basic but very clean and a great hot shower, tv, lovely table and chairs at the back overlooking the lagoon, and temperamental wi-fi which worked better by the pool area. There was everything we needed in the kitchen (including microwave and coffee mocha!) to be able to self-cater which is handy where food and eating out in Vanuatu is pricey. You are a mini-bus taxi ride away from supermarket/Port Vila town centre so worthwhile picking up essentials such as drinks, beer, milk on way there if possible, to tide you over until you can do a bigger supermarket trip. (Note that supermarkets stop selling alcohol in Vanuatu from 11am Saturday through to Monday morning.) Manager, Chris, was incredibly helpful to us and helped make our stay very enjoyable. We went to Three Pigs restaurant (1km) our first night and second night when we had a car we drove to a Thai restaurant Chris had recommended. The pool is inviting but quite small and was cold whilst we were there, but there are kayaks to borrow and all sorts of snorkelling gear, reef shoes etc that we didn't need but could be handy. This really was a lovely place to begin our hols, enjoy the lagoon views and slide into the island vibe.
Date of stay: June 2023
Room Tip: Sea-facing bungalow really was lovely - you could barely be any closer to the water.
Trip type: Travelled with family

Took my 7 yr old Granddaughter for a birthday treat. 2 brm bungalow waterfront views. manager and staff are awesome. Nothing is too much trouble. Beds are comfortable, bathroom is a decent size. patio overlooking the lagoon with table and chairs. Make your own cocktail and sit out and watch the world go by. very relaxing. Look after yourself with meals, or go out. supermarket about 5 mins away by local bus.

Room tip: This is a great place to relax. Self contained, so look after yourself with meals and drinks.

We absolutely loved our time at Pacific Lagoon Apartments. Tranquil, lush, peaceful with plenty of space. The apartments are nicely spread out so it feels quite private. Having a kitchen was a bonus so we could have breakfast at 'home' (eating out in Vanuatu is not cheap!). All of the staff were lovely and went out of their way to be helpful. Most especially Chris, who I cannot thank enough for all the assistance and advice he gave us on our trip.

We loved our stay. The manager Chris helped us organising a few tours to explore Efate. It made our stay truely memorable. Our kids loved the kayaks and the pool. The gardens very meticulously maintained and the apartments too. No questions was too much for Chris and when our flight got changed to a later departure date, he helped us again. Thank you Chris for everything that you were doing for us, you made us feel very welcome and at home!

first Visit since November 2019. Booked a lagoon front Vila. It was just like returning home. Great to see Chris and Lily are still there and the place is running as good as ever. Villas are great, clean, well maintained. Staff are just lovely, helpful, friendly. Always a pleasure to return to PLA. Hopefully will be back in A;ril, all going to plan.

Reviewed 19 August 2022

We were extremely comfortable in this spacious apartment on the water's edge at Erakor Lagoon. It was lovely to watch the changes with the movement of the tides and we were amazed by the many beautifully coloured sea stars we observed in the shallows at low tide.

Staff members were friendly and very obliging, particularly Chris, the manager, who couldn't have been more helpful. We greatly appreciated his recommendations and many conversations about Vanuatu.

The kitchen was equipped with a gas stove (with griller and oven) and a microwave and all that we needed to prepare our meals, including a large pot for cooking pasta.

Although the apartments are located a little way out of town, there is easy access to the market, supermarkets and restaurants. We never waited more than 5 minutes for one of the local mini buses that will drop you anywhere you choose for a very reasonable 150 vatu per person.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!
