Terrible restaurant. The lady who is the manager is not helpful at all: didn't help to find a car to hire, made us problems to organize breakfast early in the morning (early departure from the hotel). She seems to be at her place and not for the guests. The rooms are very acoustic: we couldn’t sleep ‘cause the neighbours decided... More

The hotel is well-located in the centre of town, minutes from dive shops, tour agencies, the market and Charlie Fung's amazing restaurant. Definitely retro in style it has a lobby with character and a beautiful garden with a large open-sided bure where you can take your meals. Rooms are comfortable enough, if a little basic, and hot water is intermittent... More

It looks like one of those old South African safari hotels. Based in the middle of the town it is ideally located to do just about everything. I think it is also the biggest hotel with around 30 rooms. Breakfast is sparse with a piece of fruit and tea/coffee and toast. You can order a hot breakfast if you so... More

Stayed for one night at low season, very calm and nice with rooms right on the garden and swimmingpool area. It's situated in the middle of town so it's easy to get everywhere (and do go to the fruit- and veggie market down the street, it's worth a visit) and there's a nice little café just across the street.

The hotel is in the middle of town , so close to everything. The staff were excellent, very accomodating. Mary Jane runs a very tight ship, and a great job that she does. The room was on ground floor, just a fan, very clean, very pleased. The restaurant is good, most meals we had there were great, a few little... More

Hotel is located on the main street in town, so it is well located to access everything you will need. Rooms are standard and clean with A/C and ceiling fan. Upstairs rooms have balconies, ours overlooking pool and beautiful gardens. Restaurant food was good. Local staff were good and quite attentive however the only criticism we have is that one...

6 of us went to the restaurant for dinner . A well done steak was still rare and chicken was raw. Meals came out all at different times. Water was not offered we had to ask for it. No service staff in the room we had to find him to get more drinks. A disappointing meal to an otherwise wonderful... More

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
