Very friendly staff. Basic facilities, clean room, a good budget hotel in Port Villa with good location. Special fried rice for breakfast was tasty but could be a bit repetitive after a week. Discovered a real kava bar non touristy just behind the hotel that is worth a visit for local customs.

Have just returned to sydney after 7 days at CP this is my 8th stay and as always the staff are friendly and the food is great... it has its minor imperfections as with every place but its the staff and location that makes it worth it... get the serviced apartment if you can much better than the standard rooms

The hotel is nothing fancy but what do you expect for the price. The pool is nice and the restaurant serves decent food. The service is pretty good. The hotel is in a good location within walking distance to the town centre. I'd stay here again.

For the price that we paid for our room, I was expecting something pretty nice. Words used to describe our actual room... crowded, dated, run down. The valance on the bed was crooked and grubby, the toilet was jammed in next to the shower next to a dated brown curtain hanging over a window, the tap leaked out of the... More

Stayed at Coconut Palms 6 times now & about to stay again in a few weeks for my 7th stay. Its a small resort where my expectations meet cost. As you can see from the price, its good value when your expectations meet the lifestyle of the Vanuatu. You can pay $250+ a night in Vila for a room &... More

If you are on a budget, this is a very good value place to go. It's basic and clean, come with breakfast and pool. Staff are friendly and fairly good location. Can't complaint with the cheap price that I was paying!

We stayed in the superior orchard room with a queen-sized bed, air con, bathroom (cold water only), tiny fridge and TV. It was reasonably clean but I wouldn't like to be stuck in the resort on a rainy day. The outside swimming pool is quite large compared to other resorts in Vanuatu. However, they need to keep it cleaner, there... More

The pristine pool set among gently swaying palms and a symphony of birds was like an oasis. Internet access was free - a Godsend after having to pay $10 per hour at our previous resort on the lagoon. Meals were of high quality so we were very pleasantly surprised that they were only about half the price of our previous... More

Set amongst swaying coconut palms and tropical gardens, Coconut Palms Resort seemed like a comfortable paradise sent from the heavens above. The staff are always happy and friendly. Loved the eclectic mix of tropical and colonial style with contemporary features.

Not an option, unless your idea of a holiday is to engage 24/7 with staff to get the most basic of amenities. The Superior Orchid rooms ($189 full rate NZD a night) are more accurately described as inferior. Very few of the features advertised on the website are actually available. Core basics such as air conditioning and a shower with... More
