My husband and I got married on Erakor in March last year and it was amazing .... We decided we would have a quick break and get back there and I was not disappointed! We jammed everything into our 5 nights 4 days - snorkeling, coconut crab the French restaurant, up the road, Thai massage, hiring a quad and going... More

Had an amazing 5 nights on Erakor with family and my new husband! There was 8 of us who hired the Aqua Blue Beach House. I highly recommend this for families or big groups, as it is a modern, comfortable house situated on the far corner of the island, giving a feeling of complete seclusion and island paradise.

Erakor Island resort is located about 5 mins drive from the main strip of Port Vila plus 6 minute ferry ride. The ferry is free if you are a guest. A minivan with a B (public bus) costs 150 VT per person and a car with a T (taxi) costs about 300 VT per person from town. Tip: as you... More

We paid 1000vt each (which is redeemable on food, drinks and activities) and caught the ferry over to Erakor Island for lunch. The service was good and the food was lovely - not too crowded either. We walked thru meandering palm lined paths past lovely huts with verandas and hammocks outside. We didn't look inside the huts so cannot comment... More

From the free ferry transfer onwards, staff were welcoming and hospitable. The only minor err was trying to stick us a 2000vt drinks bill which was not ours, but such 'happy accidents' seem common in Port Vila, where the Australians seem not to notice them. The island and setting on Erakor lagoon are beautiful. Beaches are small and white coral/sand... More

Stayed in accommodation which was a 20 minute walk from the ferry over to Erakor Island. We paid 1000 Vatu each to go over on ferry and this was redeemable on activities, food and drink. The girls hired x 2 paddleboards for 1 hour each and we ate lunch from the cafe on the beach - very relaxing and not... More

We recently had 5 nights at Erakor and were disappointed. We booked after having read all of the positive reviews on trip adviser. The staff are generally very friendly but the rooms we had were very tired and needed a make over, especially the bathrooms. Our ocean front spa bungalow reminded me of a run down beach house. Erakor is... More

Erakor was a nice bit of luxury to finish off our Vanuatu trip. The room we had was right on the beach, with a loft room for the boys. The snorkeling off the beach was excellent, though the tidal current could get quite strong at times. We tried kayaking and paddle-boarding in the safe waters of the lagoon. An on-demand... More

We stayed at Erakor island for 4 nights at the end of June '14. Overall we had a good stay and thought everything was satisfactory. We stayed in a beachview bungalow with a spa. It was clean and nicely furnished. The day bed and hammock outside was a nice touch. The island itself is really nice with very well looked... More
