There are few options down town in Port Vila for a nice airconditioned nights sleep so of CBD ( such that it is) is on your wish list you can do a lot worse than stay at The Grand Hotel and Casino. My room was clean and well serviced, front desk staff were friendly and breakfast buffet ( included in... More

Our group of 5 stayed for 5 nights. The rooms were clean and plenty of space. The views across the harbour were spectacular. The pool area was a great spot to relax after a tough day fishing and when we caught fish the restaurant prepared and served the fish a number of ways which were all fantastic. We all felt... More

Not having any interest in gambling, I was reluctant to stay. Wow, was I surprised. Didn't have to go in to the casino at all. Rooms were clean and spacious. Great view over the water from the balcony. Excellent pool area to relax. Great breakfast and selection of food - can feed your face until you explode if you like!... More

I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel and Casino in Port Vila. It is actually as good as it looks in the brochures. Fantastic location right on the edge of Port Vila Harbour and views across the harbor to Irririki Island. A small boat ferries guests and staff back and forth all day and night to Irririki and it provides... More

My husband and I visited here for dinner one night. We both ordered the platter of local food which was delicious. The service was friendly and prompt. We dined on the balcony overlooking Iririki Island which was very romantic.

Grand never fails to be a superb venue for business meetings to suit great variety of my clients .we expect and need a suitable privacy even in the public lounge and the staff are very discreet and welcoming. We all love the fun atmosphere in the small casino which has a superb atmosphere as soon as you enter..

A perfect central location. The sister resort across the way also lends itself to a number of included activities; and a bigger pool. The pool is clean, as are the rooms. The breakfast buffet is large enough to cater for most personal desires, whilst the all day menu and dinner menus lend its self to more western foods. You can... More

The central location of the hotel suited us for a 2 night stop over. The harbour view from our room was excellent and the outside swimming pool and lounging area was great. We compared restaurant menus around town and chose to eat at The Grand trusting that the food quality would be high as it has many visitors. Breakfast choice... More

My partner and I stayed at the Grand for two weeks and we absolutely loved it. The location is conveniently right on the shopping strip and the boat to Iririki island is literally right next to it. The views from our room were amazing, the hotel itself is right beside the sea and you can see many islands and greenery... More
