Poppy's on the Lagoon was just what we were after. It was lovely and quiet, tidy and welcoming. The staff were wonderful. Very helpful with tips on what to do around the Island. We had a room just in front of the pool, downstairs and it was great. It was super convenient, as it was only a 15-20 minute walk... More

Located in a hillside at Erakor Lagoon. The beach, pool, reception and restaurants are all located down lagoonside. Many rooms are located up hillside with rather steep stairs up tro the rooms. People should notice this when booking if they want to avoid the climbings. There is a pool even up in this area. Wifi in reception area though slow... More

I have learnt something about advertising - close up shots of poolside areas, beach and dining areas don;t really give the true picture a place. We stayed in accommodation on the hill which has a lovely view over the lagoon. The room is pretty basic but comfortable. Breakfasts are basic, they appear to measure out exactly how much you get...

We found Poppy's to be a lovely place to stay. We had a group of 8 staying in two units. The staff were friendly, and very helpful. The driveway is steep, it's a bit of a workout. Take reef shoes as the lagoon is not a beach but a reef area. If you want to swim the pools are the... More

I loved my accommodation at Poppy's. I had a beautiful studio with all the mod cons of kitchen, bathroom, bed and dining table, and a deck with a table and chairs with a view of the lagoon. Bliss! And only a short 10-15 walk to downtown Port Vila, and within walking distance of museum, parliament and supermarkets. It wasn't noisy... More

We returned last week after a week staying at Poppy's. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the loveliest people! Our 2 bedroom villa was spacious and comfortable but it was very noisy at night: Poppy's is next to where the locals live and every family keeps a rooster, so we were woken at 5am every morning. Also the... More

We spent a week at Poppy's and really enjoyed it. It was in a great location - accessible to town and to all that Vanuatu offers. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the food was good, and we had a great time. I have no hesitation in recommending it to friends visiting Port Vila. However, on arriving home, my... More

Poppy's on the Lagoon is a great place to stay. It is not some ubiquitous resort that could be anywhere in the world. It is a relaxing welcoming resort in amongst the real Vanuatu. Staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Will help work out best options for activities and have lots of suggestions if you are stumped for ideas. A... More

I could not fault Poppy's! Very family friendly, the staff were all absolutely fantastic. We stayed in a lagoon view two bedroom apartment which had an amazing view! Our son loved swimming in the family pool and the food at the onsite restaurant was great! We hope to return for our holiday next year!

Very personalised and friendly place, close enough to town, overlooking lagoon. Family friendly. I was travelling with my daughter and she really enjoyed the place. The staff were very accommodating and helpful.
