Thanks to Pin and the team for a wonderful stay last month. A perfect place for a honeymoon or equally fabulous for a family/group - in fact we're planning a group vacation back there for 2016! Having your own pool was perfect. The whole set up was terrific and the Beach House Cafe next door is a perfect addition. Only... More

Booked in for 6 nights, we arrived to only be told that there was no booking for us but they could sort out something for us. Considering we had been up since 3am and coming to find out there was no booking for us was a let down. After half n hour we were finally told a room was avaliable,... More

Dear Flynn91, It was unfortunate that your booking with Flight Center Australia did not get through to us, this is rare and was immediately followed up with Flight Center in Australia. However at the time of check-in you were advised that this was not a problem and that the room would be available as quickly as possible, which it was.... More

I spent 6 nights at Surfside recently with my 20mth granddaughter whilst her parents stayed at Breakas which is child free. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Our stove did not work on the first night but within 10 mins of me reporting this to reception Peter was down to fix it. The pool was fantastic. Being able to... More

We found the buildings lacking in build quality and the service very poor. Air cons not working, no hot water upstairs, mould everywhere and that is just for starters. This could be a beautiful place if maintained better and the price reduced. The pictures online look amazing but this is not what you actually get. We contacted our travel agent... More

Dear Scott, It is very disappointing to find you did not enjoy your stay with us, even though we attended to any complaint you raised immediately. Your visit to Vanuatu appears to have aroused some very deep felt racist issues which are clearly manifested in your Trip Advisor comments on Surfside, Breakas Beach Resort and the Port Vila Markets.

We stayed with another couple in a 3 bedroom Villa (Driftwood). They are so spacious and had all the mod cons.It was lovely to have a balcony overlooking the beach and watching the locals frolicking in the surf and seeing the sunset. Doesn't get much better than that. The plunge pool was a good place to be on balmy nights... More

We stayed with two families of five (4 adults, 6 children) in the 4 bedroom villa. The quality of the accommodation is great and was thoroughly cleaned every day. Excellent location on the beach and the local bus service runs right past the front door. You can get anywhere within the city limits for just 150 vtu. We stayed over... More

Me and my partner stayed in a deluxe beach front villa for one week. Such a great place.. Crashing waves everynight and snrkelling outside your door. The seabreeze was amazing especially on our bedrrom balcony where we watched the sunset everynight.

We spent 8 nights in a 3 Bedroom Villa. It was fantastic and right on the ocean :) our kids are over 15 so they could enjoy the adult only resort facilities next door at Breakas Beach Resort.
