We stayed in the Frangipani unit, the cheapest option and found it to be perfectly adorable! I had fallen sick in Luganville and we decided that if I was going to lay around in bed all day it may as well be in a nice place, and this was perfect! I could lie on the bed and enjoy the peaceful, beautiful view across the water.
The bathroom was very cute! previously when we had stayed in more traditional style accommodations it came along with a lot of bugs and dirt or dust from the ceiling, but this place was impeccable. We are so glad we stayed here, it felt very relaxing and pretty good value. Although without a kitchenette you might find the meal costs piling up. We were surprised that you had to pay for the kayak hire, as that's completely different from any other resort we've heard from.
The restaurant was very nice, but not cheap.
We didn't have much time here, but we managed to borrow a kayak and go up to the blue hole which was magical. A must do!
We also managed to snorkel around and find the plane crash on the island as well: a fun treasure hunt ;)
We went on the Millennium cave tour on our last day in Santo, and we had a nice time relaxing our muscles sitting in the calm warm water on the beach front of the resort and sipping fruit smoothies, a perfect goodbye to Santo!
