8 of us stayed here twice while scooting off to other islands. It is a quiet sanctuary on the lagoon with wonderful and helpful staff, beautifully kept gardens, couldn't count how many lovely pools were in the complex, great happy hour. The accomodations were very well appointed and comfortable with lovely touches throughout. We didn't eat here due to other... More

I stayed here for 2 nights, and was not disappointed. The little beach was an amazing place to sit and look over the lagoon. The room was massive and had good facilities. The restaurant served very good food at pretty good prices. Good location to Mangoes if you wish to eat elsewhere for a change, and a pretty short walk... More

We had a great time at Poppy's on the Lagoon with friends and family coming together for a 60th birthday celebration. We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units upstairs with great views over the lagoon and close to the amenities. Getting to the main Port Villa township was easy and staff were very helpful organizing taxis and activities.... More

Stayed in a 3 bedroom beachside villa. Lots of room for all of us with full kitchen, dining, lounge and main with ensuite. Great island experience especially the Tuesday Melanesian night. Good food, friendly staff, lots of stuff for the kids to do. Walking distance to town. Recommend.

We only stayed here for one night as we were flying to Tanna Island and could not make the connection through Sydney (from Adelaide) in one day. We arrived 2330 and were efficiently picked up from the airport by Melanesian tours (which has an office at Poppy's) and taken to our hotel. As reception was closed we were given a... More

We stayed 12 days at Poppy’s on the Lagoon in July. It was a magic break away from the both work and the cold of Dunedin. We really did enjoy the friendly staff and how well we were looked after. Good service good food and good people really made our holiday at Poppy’s Mr # 15

We stayed 4 nights in a studio room on the hill side. The first night we had an introductory talk from a young girl who did not seem well and was difficult to hear.

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
