We were evacuated from the Barrier Beach House the night we arrived in Santo to the Hotel Santo in downtown Luganville and stayed three nights. This is a solid concrete building that can withstand a good size cyclone. It's clean and comfortable and Mary Jane the owner is a sweetheart. She even whipped up a very nice dinner for 10... More

We stayed out of town, but a quick visit to Luganville and the markets found us needing somethinhg to eat for lunch. Enter Hotel Santo. Food was good, exactly what you expect for a pub meal. Beer was cold, but only available in bottles, and there were reasonable wines available by the glass. While food just about anywhere in Vanuatu... More

We chose this Hotel because of it's location and particularly as it is across the road from Allan Power Dive. We were happy with our accommodation in the rooms at the back of the Hotel, which are quiet and very spacious. There are also complimentary toiletries. Mary Jane was very helpful in organizing a trip for us when the town... More

The hotel has a 70's design and a central location. The reception, restart and outdoor eating area and pool were not modern but they were still nice and had character. The food at the restaurant was delicious and the service was quick. The rooms, however, looked fine but the dusty smell and surfaces of the room, gave the impression that... More

A welcoming email response from Mary Jane when I booked was a positive start. We booked for two nights. We found the hotel charming, central to all we needed, comfortable and clean. We had a fan-cooled garden room which had a pleasant outlook and was very quiet and cool - it was June. The bed was comfortable. The WiFi worked,... More

May have been built decades ago, this salmon pink colour building is clean basic and right in town. Walking distance to shops, not that there is much to shop for in quiet Santo. Near dive shops. Budget prices air con rooms, great pool and put out a good pizza. Staff friendly and do their best to assist.Mary Jane always answers... More

We stayed at the Hotel Santo at the end of our 2 week holiday in Vanuatu. We couldn't have been happier. The hotel had an elegance that took you back in time and the atmosphere was relaxing and homely. Our room was upstairs overlooking the pool area and gardens. The gardens were amazing - absolutely stunning and full of everything... More

The hotel is very central and is great for the price. We ate in and found the food lovely. The staff were pleasant and tried to please us whenever possible. The rooms were simple and had everything that we would want. We soon realized that it was solar water heating so we showered at night. The garden setting and outdoor... More

A good hotel. Not a 5 star but its up there and great for the price. Other places were twice the price and not twice as good. Loved the location as we used Allan Power Dive across the road so very convenient. Located in the town so everything available walking distance (other places are well out of town). The room... More

We stayed at the Santo Hotel for 2 nights May 15th and 16th, 2013 and were glad we chose it. It has a bit of a colonial era feel and probably dates back to then for sure, but that isn't a negative. We stayed upstairs and had aircon which we needed as there'd been quite a bit of rain and... More
