  • 8.0.Very good

    The staff were excellent. Nothing was an issue for them. I had a lovely room on the third floor overlooking the pool. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything I needed; air con mini bar, TV and an iron. There is a spa on sight that has reasonably priced massages. There is also a tour company to assist wuth bookings. Most meals were good. The location is excellent. Town is only a five minute walk away and there is a large Supermarket close by. The only negative is poor water pressure in the shower. Overall a lovely holiday.

    I stayed in one bed room apartment and standard room. Standard room had enough Space but I highly recommend apartment type rooms. They are spacious, have kitchen with cooktop, big bathroom with washing machine... very comfortable to stay. 10 minutes walk to city centre, 15 minutes drive to airport, good hotel to use for transition to another island.

    All perfect. Great restaurant, bar, desk, and room staff people. How can people all be so nice and friendly? I assume they have the same problems as the rest of us.

    A standard motel style hotel. I found the photos to be deceiving and the pool wasn’t in use. The room was clean and the location is good. Our room was worn and old. It was fine for a night. The breakfast was good.

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good to have tour booking office on site. Melanesian Cultural Buffet was great - wonderful food, cultural show and music. Pool was nice. Only complaint was that all cooked breakfast options were only available at a further cost.

  • 8.0.Very good

    We were greeted with a welcome drink upon arrival and found the staff friendly and helpful. Initially we were placed in the wrong room but they rectified that and put us in the room we booked. We liked the fact that the Melanesian was close to town and had great cultural performances on some nights. We liked the fact that their breakfast had a wide variety of food including the fish shaped pancakes, crussoints, cereals, fruits and yogurts which catered to all breakfast preferences. Our concerns when staying there with a toddler was that the pool is not fenced and on the 3rd floor on the railings on the balcony outside the enterance to the rooms too wide. They are wide enough to fit a small child through. We had to be extra vigilant in keeping our child away from the railings. It would make it safer for small children if either chicken wire is placed as an extra barrier or the railings be moved closer together.
