Poppy's is a relaxing oasis in walking distance to Port Vila. The staff are amazing, no job, too big or small and always with a smile.

5 nights at poppies friendly staff Cabin was excellent. The meals are good fish and chips very nice. The only draw back which doesn't matter is the steep driveway (taxi or bus, bus to town 300 vt or $3 aus)these pick you up at resort.Friendly staff will ring 1 for you. Close to town i will definitely be going back.

I've stayed there and I love the location, the friendlyness of the staff and the layout of the resort. It's only a few minutes walk to town and taxi and local service bus can also arrange from the reception or tour desk with the friendly staff.

Poppy's is a great place for a holiday. Location is good and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It has a nice blend of melanesian tradition with resort comfort. Lagoon View room was everything we expected, very clean, well equipped and serviced. The setting and gardens are also great!

I contacted Poppy's to organise a surprise bottle of wine for my in-laws holidaying with friends at their resort. A lady by the name of Tina got in touch and she was amazing!
