Nice resort overall, clean rooms & air con. 15min walk from main town centre (200vat taxi). Not much of a beach across from it but there is a pool. Air conditioning worked a treat also for those hot nights!

We have enjoyed our time at the Beachfront Resort. Dave Cross and has staff are very accommodating and the facilities are exactly what we expected. Our bungalow overlooks the ocean, to witness a beautiful sun rise every morning. The pool and grounds are well kept. The food at

Thank you for your very complimentary review. It gives us a great deal of pleasure when a guest appreciates our resort. The concept of Beachfront Resort is to provide comfortable, clean accommodation with the modern conveniences which guests expect. We did not set out to become another accommodation facility full of glass, plastic and modern architecture design features designed to impress. This resort is on Santo, an island which in someway is lost in time where there are villages living a traditional lifestyle as they have for generations. We have not set out to knock people's socks of but to provide professional services to our guests in a place where they will not forget they are in Vanuatu. You got it right when you said "if you are looking for a vintage island life experience this is you island and this is your place." Thank you for your excellent review.

What a pleasant surprise when we were shown our accommodation for the next 6 days. Spacious, comfortable, and clean, right on the waterfront. For an R & R Holiday this is the ideal location, as it's very quiet and secluded. The huge pool is a fabulous alternative to the beach.

The resort is great, the position is good, on the beach and near the city (1.5km walk if you need to). The room are extremely clean and people are nice. The place is safe, I left all my diving outside the room with no issues or fear they would get stolen. Would have been nice

Thanks for a great review. Just a couple of points. 1. It is not advisable to leave valuables outside of your room no matter how safe you think it is. Security are good but they cannot be everywhere. 2. Seats and bar on the beach is a great idea but not very practical bearing in mind that we have a fully staffed bar/restaurant with fares and seats on our pool deck. The resort likes to keep our green space and waterfront uncluttered and alcohol free. Thanks for the review and we appreciate your suggestions

My wife and I are volunteering for a month on Santo and were looking for a place to spend the day on our day off. We thoroughly enjoyed spending the day at Beachfront. All staff were extremely helpful and attentive. The pool was lovely! The grounds are meticulously maintained

Yes there are several options. By early September construction should be finished on our Dive and Fishing Section which can offer a wide selection of boating adventures at the resort. In the interim you can book fishing trips through the resort or contact Santo Dive and Fishing.

"We had Starfish Family Room with Aircon, # 20. We would stay in this room again. If you wanted a more private experience, go for a bungalow."
"Further away from the pool the rooms are quieter. Or you can join in the fun and have a drink by the pool!"
"the bungalows near the water are the best! (but further from the pool)"
