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.

6/10 Good

The staff were excellent, especially Betty, on reception, who was very helpful. Michel, the bus driver, was very good and easy to get on with. Breakfast was hit and miss and depending on what time you arrived, whether there was sufficient food or crockery! Rooms - we had a studio room upstairs. The shower leaked water and the seal on the fridge was broken. The bed was comfortable. Electricity was a problem and only one appliance could be used at a time. The kettle was useless as it only “boiled” water to lukewarm. Had to use the microwave to make a cuppa. Tv - once again this was also hit and miss as to whether you got any volume on the channels! The fox movies channel lost sound after a couple of days then froze completely. Wifi was available at reception and was slow.

8/10 Very good

Setting was beautiful and staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Getting to and from the center of Port Vila was cheap and easy, with local minibuses everywhere. Room was very good with magical views, but in the bathroom, there was some mould around the shower cabinet. Resort organised on-ground transfers to airport but charged several times more more than local taxi or bus services. Wifi was unreliable and most advertised TV channels did not work. Guests need to be aware also that there is 15% tax on room rates, making it more expensive than the advertised prices.
