This was the first time we have taken our 5 and 7 year old overseas and the Holiday Inn met all our expectations travelling as a young family. We stayed for 9 nights and there was always plenty of activities for the kids to do as well as the option of relaxing by one of the pools or finding a... More

Common areas of the Holiday Inn Resort in Port Vila have been renovated extensively within the last 5 years. This makes dining in the main restaurant or having a few quiet drinks at the bar quite nice and relaxing. Firstly, to the rooms. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite, overlooking the golf course. The room was spacious, clean and... More

Staff very friendly and helpful. Kids room great and very welcoming. Only problem we had was our room was right near the main lobby where a small band... More

We didn't stay at the Holiday Inn but dropped by for lunch. We were very impressed by the resort facilities and vowed to come back and stay at the Holiday Inn. We could see that there were a number of water sports guests could partake in, and the atmosphere was just amazing!

We had a great time at the hotel. It used to be a club med. I visited with my daughter and mother. Personnel were ever so accommodating. Many of those who work there have been there a long time. We ussed the bar at the pool side for dinner. I plan to go back.

The staff are an asset to this hotel, they are warm and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The pools and lagoon are great areas for Kids, the rooms are a little dated but that is to be expected given the age of the property. The only downside was there was a lack of variety on the food front... More

As a semi regular traveler to Vanuatu, I have never been nor stayed at the Holiday Inn, until now. The whole place has a relaxed feel and happy atmosphere which in my opinion makes content staff.

After reading other TripAdvisor reviews of The Holiday Inn, we paid the extra and stayed in a villa over the water - lagoon - and so SO pleased we did, they're well worth it!
