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

Restaurant smelled a bit funny inside, so we ate outside. Fish and chips was perfect! An absolute gem of a find! Found hotel SAnto on our last day but had we found it any sooner, would've gone back for fish n chips again and again! Very well priced too (lunch). Good place for lunch if you're diving with Allan Power... More

We were in Santo on business and due to a delay had to stay one night. Paid approx 130 AUD. Basic hotel, in the center of Luganville. Rooms and ensuite bathroom clean, no frills, dark decor. 1 towel but good selection of shampoos and even toothpaste/toothbrush which you don't get in most mid-ranges. Rooms have basic furnishings, no TV. Some... More

We stayed 3 nights at Hotel Santo in the ground floor rooms in September 12 and moved here at the last minute at we did not like the hotel we had initially booked. The location in the middle of Lugganville is convenient. The garden and the swimming pools are very pleasant, although the swimming pool could have been cleaned better.... More

We arrived in Luganville with 4 days to spare and no booking. The Lonely Planet suggested Hotel Santo as the best pick, so we took a punch. The reception from the owner was mixed. She told us straight she has no internet at the moment. We were aware that there is simple sleeping at the bottom and more luxurius at... More

Central location within the low key township of Luganville. Great value and very friendly atmosphere. A little bit of a time warp. Ground floor, fan cooled rooms are spacious with louvered, screened windows allowing a cross flow breeze. Lovely tropical gardens and a reasonable sized, older style pool. Water was a little cloudy though. No beach area in the actual... More

I stayed for 3 nights and thought Hotel Santo was a well kept and characterful option for those staying on Santo who don't want to be cut off in a remote resort. It is handily situated in the middle of Luganville yet was peaceful and with a beautifully kept garden area. My none a/c garden room was good value and... More
