My husband and I have just returned from a fantastic holiday in Vanuatu. We were looking for a relaxing holiday and that certainly is what we experienced. Contributing to that was choosing to stay at Poppy's. Our room had everything we needed. The location perfect with lagoon views from the patio, great for relaxing with a book or an afternoon... More

6 years ago Poppy's was recommended to us and we decided to try it out. We loved it. I needed a relaxing holiday so we decided to give it another go and we just spent 12 days at Poppys and it has not changed. All the staff (from reception, café, cleaning and grounds men) were wonderful and very friendly. The... More

We stayed at Poppy's during February 2014, was such an amazing place. Beautiful location and great staff :) Will definitely visit again. The Lagoon view studio rooms are great value for money (we paid $99 per night as part of a deal). No air conditioning however we did not think it was necessary, the breeze from the lagoon is lovely.... More

We spent a week at Poppy's and it was great. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. We had a Garden View Bungalow. Great places to see and good food. Go if you don't want to rush. You can forget the world.

We stayed here for a week and have mixed feelings about the place. Our room ,which was up the top of the complex, was nice and tidy. Very welcoming with flowers on the bed but we were woken in the wee hours of most mornings by the tour buses from Melanesian Tours which were right next door. The restaurant was... More

My sister and I stayed at Poppy's in late December to early January. It was an absolute pleasure. We arrived at around midnight on Christmas Day, but our airport transfer driver had our keys and let us into our room. We checked in officially in the morning and were greeted with a delicious lime juice as a welcome gesture. Poppy's... More

What's not to love about Poppys. Its a boutique resort which means not many people. Our two room villa was perfectly sized for our family of four and was right by the pool - fabulous! The atmosphere was such you couldn't help but relax. The service was the best we received anywhere. It was a short walk from Poppys to... More

Very nice spotlessly clean, neat studio rooms, the lagoon view ones were nice with the view & the balcony. The reception staff were helpful & the food was fine - the island night was interesting. The main pool area okay, but I did not like the position on the lagoon. I also stayed at Hideaway Island & although the resort... More
