We stayed at the Village de Santo for 3 days. The food was great - nice and fresh, the rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Tours could be arranged if required and suggestions taken up if needed. Reasonably priced. Best thing: helpful friendly staff. Not so good: While there the microwave exploded and left the room stinking... More

Though not on the beach nor in town, this place is highly recommended. The large apartments were very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The pool and bar area are very nice, but the thing that makes this Resort special is the people, service, very nice food and yummy espresso coffee. Breakfast includes interesting home made pawpaw and banana jam,... More

From the time I met Bev and her offer to help with the booking for our party of 9 to the time Nabil said goodbye and we left for the airport the service and hospitality was faultless. Spacious , clean rooms, friendly and highly skilled staff, great food and entertainment. Village de Santo is the only place I will stay... More

Had a very nice stay at the Village de Santo in June 2014. Bev was very helpful as soon as I booked my reservation reached out by e-mail me to ask if I wanted any dives booked before I got to the island. Nabil was a great host and very welcoming. Was very responsive to all requests and made sure... More

The rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff were helpful and arranged tours and airport transfers without any fuss. Taxis to the main street of Luganville were very easy to find and only cost 200 vatu (about Aus $2 -$2.50). Overall a very pleasant trip and I would happily stay at the Village De Santo again.

All the staff were friendly and smiling and the owner (Nabil) and manager (David (manager) were informative, flexible and great fun. The rooms were clean, spacious and the beds had beautiful Egyptian cotton sheets – ask Nabil (from Cairo) the thread count! Food was terrific, service exceptional due to a great attitude amongst the team – Nabil took his 12... More

Nabil and staff were very attentive to our needs, we were very satisfied with our stay. Very close to town and no problem organising a tour. The Restaurant and food was first class and rooms very clean. Only drawback was internet very slow.

This is a very nice place to stay in Luganville, the owners are really nice and friendly, and can give plenty of advice on things to do. The staff is very nice too, and really helpful. The rooms are spacious, and clean. Not located in the center, but since there is nothing much to do in the center, and all... More
