Stayed for a week late August. Had an upstairs studio room which we had requested. Great view of the pool and lagoon and sea. Everything was clean. Kitchenette was basic but adequate. Staff very friendly and organised excursions and guests seems to enjoy their recommendations. Excellent free wi-fi. Pool area is lovely and we enjoyed using the kayaks. Only negative was that hot water ran cool at night, but hopefully that is fixed by now. Good washing machine and tumble drier available for a small charge.
Never had to wait more than 90secs for a bus into town. They generally look ramshackle, but the roads are so potholed that they can't go fast enough to get into trouble!
The resort has small shop, but its very cleverly stocked with basic provisions including wine and beer. There is a local shop about 200m towards Breakas which is good for bread and extras. If a lady has set up a table next to the shop selling local bread, you must try it. Absolutely delicious. Bon march supermarket in no2 district has an excellent butchery and French groceries. We barbecued fantastic scotch filet for 1080vatu/kg (same price for rump or sirloin). Leader price supermarket no2 is best for nz and aus brands. Groceries are expensive, but no more so than other pacific islands. I was impressed with the uptodate selection of Dvd's for hire at reception.
Would highly recommend day trip to hideaway island for snorkelling, which includes lunch and snorkel safari and glassbottomed boat trip (reception will book). It's very good value and not worth the hassle of organising your own transport.
This is not a full amenities resort, so will not suit if you want night life and action! But for a relaxing break it fits the bill perfectly.
