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! I had limited booking information as I wasn't privy to their specific arrangements. This made finding them a little tricky. Tina however went above and beyond to... More

We were here only a night as a stop over to morning flight. It was Island night and we had the best fun meeting a local family who had come to tea. Lots of fun with the host William who shared the customs and knowledge of the beautiful tea we shared that night. The staff got everyone dancing and having... More

Average standard for Vanautu. Staff friendly, rooms clean but in need of a modern renovation. Complimentary breakfast very ordinary with a million flies.Dinning areas not very inviting. Good range of family villas, some with private pools. Had a great massage onsite. Extremely steep driveway to reach the road, local buses do not like to travel down the steep potholed driveway...

Dear DeborahM, I am sad to hear that you would not consider Poppys again for your next trip to Vanuatu. The road coming into Poppys is unfortunately a public road so we have little influence on the possible changes. However, we are more than happy to ensure that any transport drivers will come down to pick up or drop off... More

We stayed at Poppy's on the lagoon for my best friends 50th birthday in September. We could not fault the management & staff, they truly were amazing & went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The meals were fresh and so tasty & nothing was to much trouble to them to make. I would definitely go back... More

I have stayed here a number of times and continue to enjoy the beautiful tropical surrounds, the lagoon, the well kept grounds and friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation was great and the walk into the town of Port Villa is easy. A great place to stay.

We experienced the lagoon view room for 1 night then the Garden view for 5 nights, preferred the Garden view due to its location - quieter & close to the adult pool & the beach. The lagoon view room was on the hill so a some steps to climb to get to & from the main area. The Garden view... More

We found every facet of this resort to our liking, from the very comfortable and reasonably priced room, to the free kayaks on the beach. The staff could not do enough to make the stay memorable, and every staff member was genuinely pleasant and happy, nothing put on here. There were three pools, a family pool, an adult pool, and...
