Stayed for 2 weeks over Xmas & New Year. Spent 1 full day & night with no power staff did not care just kept saying we fix it tomorrow. Toilets don't flush. Nowhere for suitcases or clothing. 7-10 blackouts a day.Rooms are very small. Food is great though some staff are not eager to serve. Would not stay here again... More

I read trip advisor after we had booked our stay in Coconut Palms and got a little nervous to be honest. (I certainly didn't tell the girlfriend of my concerns). My concerns were dispelled as soon as we got to the hotel. Our very late flight from Australia got us at the hotel about 1am and my need for a... More

I stayed at this place in October for 7 nights. I had an amazing time in Vanuatu and my stay at the Coconut palms was great. It is only a 5 min walk into town and you can also take a bus which costs about $1.50AUD per person. For people worried about the jail, it is down the end of... More
