My friends and I were made to feel incredibly welcome from the moment we set foot in this resort. We enjoyed canoeing early in the morning watching the sun rise out on the lagoon as well as the spacious kitchen and living area in our apartment. The staff were extremely lovely and helpful (calling us buses and making restaurant reservations),... More

Relax, easy to move around in Port Vila and the staff were very helpful (including getting a bus). And the prices was reasonable. We did snorkelling, viewing the turtles and good meals particlarly the crab, lobster and fish. Happy to go again

Our family of four stayed in a two bedroom lagoon view unit, and it was absolutely perfect. The rooms were a generous size the lounge/dining/kitchen had everything we needed. The balcony had table and chairs which I enjoyed sitting on with a morning cuppa. Even though our girls are 12 and 13 they still manage to make a huge amount... More

We had a great 8-night holiday at Poppies in Port Vila to celebrate my 70th birthday. Such beautiful surroundings - we chose a Beach Spa Bungalow and it was right down on the beach.

Stayed a few weeks ago with my husband, daughter, and her little boy, Jimmy. The staff were really friendly, and we enjoyed the happy hour cocktails, the massages, and the lovely infinity pool.

This was my family's first ever proper holiday together - we chose Poppy's and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Set on a tranquil Lagoon in a gorgeous tropical setting, Poppy's is far more welcoming than a larger, commercial Resort. The staff were incredibly warm and made us (especially our young children) feel comfortable immediately. Waking up every morning to the... More

Nice layout, I can see the lagoon directly from my room even my room was the farthest from lagoon itself. Unfortunately I can't enjoy it during the day because it was for business trip. Other thing, for business trip, was they put extra charge for internet connection and have very limited TV channel
