On a first trip to Vanuatu we flew in late at night, then a 15min transfer airport to Mangoes, showered and slept like a log or two on a really, really comfortable bed. In the morning we got to appreciate the views from our lagoon bure, as these are almost on a clifftop looking east out over a green valley and the lagoon. Just a small balcony with room for a couple of chairs, but very serene especially in the evening with a glass or two, and catches a good cool breeze too.
Mangoes continental breakfast is pretty light, but don't let that put you off - the best meal we had on our trip was evening meal there. And it is not a difficult walk into town, about 10mins, down quiet residential streets (via the base hospital if you wish). The bures are very comfortable, good big bathroom, with a decent shower etc, nothing to complain about. Not sure that you would call it a resort really, the pools more for cooling off than a proper swim, but do think this is a good place to stay if you want somewhere quiet, comfortable and well run, and away from the main streets of Port Vila. & there is a tour agent on site every morning, kiwi Glenda, very helpful. As are the kiwi owners, who keep a low profile but are there if you need them. Locals working there are great, sometimes the restaurant service is a bit hit and miss but hey, relax, you're on holiday!
