Staff were friendly and always around to answer any questions I had, and willing to accomidate. Food was very nice, except for the pasta on wednesday when there was trivia. Cocktails were VERY nice, especially the Fruit Tingle. Also if you stay more than 7 nights you get $100AUD food allowance but they convert at 80 vatu to the dollar... More

Took an Air NZ package with flights and 7 nights accomodation. We were on a budget, but were pleasantly surprised at what we got for the reasonable price we paid. The room was very basic, three single beds and not much else in the room (I was travelling with my 9 & 10 yr old children), no balcony, but ok... More

My overall amazing experience in Vanuatu was largely due to the awesome service I had recieved at Coconut Palms. I just got back today and had stayed there with my sister for 6 nights!! We had planned to stay at Moorings for the weekend but after one night there I had missed the staff. Everyone from the housekeepers/groundsmen, to the... More

We stayed here for 7 nights and loved it. It wasnt luxurious when compared to some of the other places but the room we chose had everything we needed - aircon, tv, fridge, microwave, ensuite and most of the time hot water! (Although with the humidity a cool shower was all that was needed). Our room was serviced daily which... More

My friend and I stayed at the Superior Orchid Room for one week at Coconut Palms. It was a small room but it was clean and all that we needed. The pool and the area around it were lovely and great for spending afternoons or nights. The staff were very friendly and they were very helpful when we wanted to... More

my husband and I stayed at coconut palms late december, early january. After some confusion with our room due to inaccurate information from our travel agent, we were upgraded to an apartment the following day. We were more than happy with the spacious apartment. We also experienced power cuts during those first few days, however as the power only went... More

While we stayed twice in transit through Port Vila the rooms were tiny, very hot and very, very noisy. Our room was 4 metres from the bar and restaurant, couldn't close the window because it was so hot. Power cut out 20 + times one night, meaning no fan. Had one meal there, pizza night, had to wait over 2... More

We stayed in the deluxe apartments which there are 10, initial walk in impression is that they are good but wasnt to last. This is the premium room which you pay a premium price, the curtains were hanging off the rails and wouldnt close properly, no big deal just attached them to the rail with some twine. Close inspection of... More

As soon as the guests made a complaint in relation to the room that they had booked through their travel agent I offered to move them immediately. Due to the level of distress the guest appeared to be under I informed the guest that I would reduce the room upgrade by 50% to which they were extremely happy and grateful.... More

I stayed at Coconut Palms for 4 nights with a couple of friends - we stayed in the clover and hibiscus rooms with shared facilities. We had mixed feelings - the rooms were clean, however the bed sheets had some stains on it and one of the rooms stank like urine. Although we had shared bathrooms and toilets, I think... More
