Great value and amazing food especially the Melanesian feast. Sometimes we had to wait but that is normal for Vanuatu with its relaxed island time pace of life. We were fortunate to be there for some of the great activities held at the resort....the fire show was spectacular which added to awesome pool, great tunes and atmosphere. All the front... More

I stayed here with a friend end of last year, and we both had the best time! The pool is absolutely incredible and it looks so stunning at night with all the lights. The people were great and we felt really looked after. Would highly recommend this place!

Have been 10 days across 4 islands in Vanuatu - and coconut palms service (and value for money) have trumped all others. Nothing fancy, just brilliant service, clean amenities and great location close to the main drag...and with buses going past every few minutes dragging around a family a five was affordable (150vt per adult, and 50vt per child to...

Coconut palms in por trial is a ver reasonably priced hotel, it is pretty central to the main drag of town. The staff were very friendly, and very helpful if needed. A few small details about the rooms, they are small, and often not all the appliances in your room ( fan switch, tv remote, tv reception) work well or... More

We arrived a few days before the worst cyclone Vanuatu has experienced. Staff were helpful and caring before and after the cyclone did its damage to the hotel even when there was plenty of clean up work to do. Daniel GM and his staff, receptionists, cooks, domestics, gardeners all of them did what they could to make our stay comfortable,... More

We stayed there for 3 nights just only 3 weeks after Cyclone Pam and it was amazing how resilient the Ni-Vanuatu people are. Coconut Palms had received some damage during the cyclone so when I arrived they had not fully reopened and rooms were limited yet the staff were going above and beyond to ensure our stay was as comfortable...

Come on share bathroom !!!! We paid $215 for the night. Not at all cheap. The power went off when we first... More
