Enjoyed 9 nights here early January 2014 with our 4 year old son. It's a great place to holiday with kids being just a short drive from the airport. Staff friendly, rooms comfortable (if a little dated) and pool, lagoon and activities all great. Food was fantastic. Spa treatments lovely. Hope to be back in 2015.

Good Afternoon Zaroomama Thank you for the 'great' review. Sounds like you had a great time and enjoyed the Melanesian way of life. With the island only approx 140km by road around everything is nice and close including the airport! Look forward to seeing you again in 2015!

We stayed 6 nights in Vanuatu and did not want to leave.. All of the staff were fantastic, especially Joseph from the pool bar! We stayed in the over water villa's and although we didn't spend a lot of time in our room it was definitely worth the upgrade. Very family friendly as well for those travelling with kids..
