Lovely rooms. Clean and functional despite the need for a little maintenance around the place. Beautiful surroundings. Helpful staff and delicious cocktails. Very relaxing.

Is a beautiful place to stay. Rained a lot during stay which played havoc with the pools. Staff are lovely. Rooms are spacious. The place as a whole is probably in need of some TLC and more information available on things to do would be handy. But I would return

Value for money. I appreciate that they accommodated our request for a different studio when the allotted studio did not suit my wife. Thank you.

8/10 Very good

Overall we had a very comfortable stay. The rooms have everything you need and are well equipped. There are two air conditions in the 2 bedroom apartments which helped to cool down the entire apartment. Rooms were cleaned everyday which was nice. Pillows and bedding were very comfortable. Some issues were the apartments did not have blockout blinds although we were told nobody could see in at night you could see through the window and also it was very bright. There was only one area to put your clothes in one of the rooms. Only two locks on two of the doors. The power cut out a few times when we would start appliances and one of the power points were burnt. But overall I would stay at Poppy’s again. My family really enjoyed their time.

Poppies accommodation
Poppies is a nice relaxing bush setting. The lagoon is not blue and clean. We were advised the lagoon is not safe to swim in, the water is murky light brown. The staff are friendly, like all people from Vanuatu we met. We had no shampoo/conditioner in our room until the 3rd day of our stay after asking for 3 days. The free continental breakfasts are generous and good variety of food delivered to your room with instant coffee.

Everything was great! Some staff were a little pushy, but the majority were absolutely brilliant! Would stay again in a heartbeat! Facilities were great and the access to free kayaks and paddle boards was awesome.

Poppy's is paradise
Out of the 3 places we stayed we liked this place the best. We were in a studio apartment towards the top. The rooms are a bit old but clean and presentable. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Staff serviced our room daily. Nice bathroom products and amenities available. Air con worked great. Breakfast is decent; fruit, pastries and cereal available. We had dinner here twice. One was the traditional night with a feast which was fun, it included kava tasting, dinner and dessert, traditional band and dancing. The other night we ordered off the menu and our food was nice. Make sure you give some tidbits to the little cats that reside in the garden. The staff at Poppy's are very helpful and friendly. They helped us book tours and called buses for us etc. Someone even came to our room when it was raining to give us an umbrella! We made use of the kayaks and used the pool too; great to have these facilities. The location of Poppy's is good, there are quite a few places to see and eat at within walking distance. Spice restaurant is close by. It is quiet on the lagoon and has a lovely view. Catching buses from here is easy. If you are elderly or not able to walk a lot be warned the driveway in and out of the resort is very steep (as well as to some of the rooms), for those that are able though it is a great workout for the bum. No complaints really. Only annoying thing is wifi is only available at reception but it's not that big of a deal.
