Don’t even know where to start with. The service in this hotel is flawless, reception is super friendly, they have gave us priceless tips to places to go around the island and during our stay in there we have hired their cars as well which was very convenient. There are hidden places in Espiritu Santo where you can only explore... More

I had the pleasure of staying at The Espiritu over xmas for a diving holiday, my only regret was not staying there longer! I will definitely be back. The room was very clean and spacious.

We hired a car from them to drive up the east... More

My wife and I came to Santo early in December and spent 5 nights at The Espiritu and 5 nights at Bokissa. We decided to stay in Luganville to have a good look at all the main island of Santo has to offer and there is lots to see and do even if you don't hold a scuba ticket. The... More

If you're heading to Santo you couldn't find a better place to stay - it's not a waterfront property but hire a car and take off for the day to visit all the beautiful Santo has to offer. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the service is probably the best I've experienced in my travels (and I have travelled... More

Good location, especially if diving the Coolidge as its just a two minute walk to Alan Power diving, staff very friendly, nice communal lounge with tv,rooms are comfortable with air con, but some rooms are still being renovated so expect building work noise all day long - even on Sunday!

Really likes this place. Room was simple but had a clean bathroom, big bed and air con. Was an onsite dive equipment wash room and store for all our gear and the hotel is smack in the centre of the sprawling metropolis that is luganville! Lovely staff, always smiling and helpful and a gorgeous dog that rules the roost. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a double room. Rooms are clean, bathroom clean and the bed comfortable. The room is air conditioned with tea making facilities, a small fridge, a TV (albeit no channels) and free wifi.
