We spent a week at Poppy's in one of the lagoon view rooms. It was very clean, the staff were helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. A couple of warnings. On several nights there were wildly barking dogs which went on for several hours, so take ear plugs just in case. This seemed to be prevalent at many of...

We were really pleased with Vanuatu as a holiday destination and Poppy's as a place to stay. It's small and intimate, in a great location and with fantastic service. Keith looked after us with tours (there are some great options) and travel, and kept guests entertained. We checked out a few of the larger hotels and feel we made a...

The resort itself was lovely and peaceful, very small in the bottom section near the lagoon. Beautiful gardens, friendly staff. The food was very poor, not well prepared and small selection. Good location short walk to town for better food or buses easy to catch at the front gate. Getting to the front gate is a very steep uneven driveway...

We stayed 6 nights at Poppys. Lovely place and wonderful staff/facilities. The complex is a nice small family run resort, quiet and discrete. There is a nice mix of units to suit both the family size, view and budget. You can walk into Port Villa in around 15-20 minutes. Nothing is too much bother for the staff who go out...

We stayed at Poppy's for 7 days during August. We found it to be quite lovely. We had a room downstairs around the pool which was perfectly placed for access to Reception and the lagoon. We had complimentary breakfasts of fruit, lime juice tea or coffee and croissant or toast with jam. The driveway is a little steep and my...

Overall I enjoyed my stay at Poppy's and would recommend it to first time visitors to Vila. The staff were friendly and will happily provide advice and arrange tours for you. The food was good and reasonably priced. Because Poppy's is on the lagoon you avoid the noise and traffic of Port Vila town centre, but are still within walking...
