After a last minute change of accommodation due to the closure of another resort we had no regrets about choosing Poppy’s On The Lagoon. We were one of only a few guests at the resort (due to being so soon – about 3 weeks - after Cyclone Pam) so had it almost all to ourselves & were made to feel... More

What a great place to stay - all in good shape and missed the worst of Cyclone Pam. Friendly staff, lovely lagoon spot and very handy to town. Rooms were comfortable and everything functioning fine. Highly recommended.

I stayed here as part of a medical assistance team post Cyclone Pam and we could't have been looked after any better. The staff were amazing working together to get Poppy's looking better then ever, the accommodation was comfortable and well appointed and the kitchen staff provided restaurant quality meals which were always well appreciated after a long days work....

Stayed post cyclone with the AUSMAT team. Even though it had suffered some damage the staff and owners had done a tremendous job getting it back up and running despite the difficult circumstances. The staff are very friendly and courteous and maid our stay memorial. I'd love to come and stay again if I ever get back to Vanuatu.😃

After cyclone Pam we stayed here while helping in the disaster response. The staff couldn't have been nicer, the food was good and the resort, although slightly damaged, did a great job. They deserve a 5-star review. Well done.

We had the good fortune to stay at Poppy's post cyclone pam. It was back up an running within days! Immaculate grounds, room laundering, meals which were excellent. Peaceful +++. A small business that really supports the local community: - Gardeners, cleaners, chefs. I enjoyed the complimentary early morning canoeing, multiple pools and massage service. Its a short stroll to... More

Dear JohnP, We really appreciate you taking the time to review Poppys. We definitely do our best to cater for everyone's needs in house so it is reassuring to know that we are achieving that! Vanuatu does get very small earthquakes, but it rarely does more than make you stop and wonder if you just imagined it! We hope that... More

My family, retired parents and 3 adult children stayed in a 3 bedroom vila on the water front. The location was lovely and the vila well appointed, with full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a comfortable lounge. However we did suffer in the heat & humidity at night (30+) particularly the rooms on the 2nd floor as there was no air-con.... More

Dear MissTripAbout, Thank you for taking the time to review Poppys. I must admit that the week that you stayed was the week leading up to cyclone Pam and the weather was extremely hot! We are usually very lucky with a lovely cool breeze over the lagoon, but yes it is understandable that you did suffer in the heat (not... More

My partner and I recently spent a week in a 1 bedroom garden villa. The room was spotless and had all the amenities we needed. A stones throw from the adults pool we couldn't have been happier with the location. The staff were all friendly and always smiling, no request was too much. As a doting couple I could tell... More
