The breakfast is not well prepared, those bread are wet. Those facilities are broken. Kettle can not be opened. The toaster doesn’t work. The fan in some of the rooms don’t work, etc. The twin room is without window.

Friendly place for solo travellers
The family who own it and the staff are really friendly and welcoming. The bar and dining area is really nice and it was really easy to get chatting to people (there seemed to be mostly solo travellers when I was there). There is a pool with sun beds and a great view over the lagoon. The food is good and the WiFi works!

Not the best experience
Seaside resort Unfortunately not the best experience. Place was quite over priced for what it is. Upon booking it is said a continental breakfast is included however please note this is cornflakes and milk and bread. (A toaster is provided to toast your bread if you prefer) I would suggest if you decided to stay here to ensure all valuables and money is locked away or with you when you are out of your room. On a good note the owners are extremely friendly and accomodating. Food is same priced as all other resorts and restaurants. Food is very nice

Interesting propriety on lagoon side.
Interesting propriety on the lagoon side of Port Vila. Still under construction, although no work (= no noise) while I was staying there. Very clean except maybe the swimming pool (I don't swim in pools if water's so cloudy I don't see walls or bottom). Good food. Nice friendly family-owned place. 15 minutes walk over the hill to get to downtown Port Vila or minibus. I liked the fact that the walk allowed me to see how and where people live.
