We have just returned from a family + extended family holiday & we could not fault Lagoon Beach Resort Apartments in any way. We had 2 townhouses as there was my husband & I & and our 2 children, 3 yo & 5 months + my cousin and my parents. We were located next door to each other in houses 1 & 2 facing the lagoon beach.
Both townhouses were very well equipped as was the rest of the townhouse. Nothing was ever too much for anyone on the resort. Whether you needed your apartment serviced every day or your towels changed, a beer to be bought to you on the beach or even to have my daughters hair braided, it was always with a smile and a relaxed atmosphere.
On our last night we went to dinner at a restaurant down the road and we had planned to walk but it was raining so we called George and out he came to drop us off and then picked us up and took us home & always with a smile.
ALL of the staff were wonderful, friendly and just THE nicest people. We were blown away by the free kindy that Chris runs for the children that cannot afford to go to school. We are making up a bundle of stuff to send for the children, clothes, books, educational toys, puzzles, anything that they can make use of.
We spent most of our time at the resort, whether by the pool or lazing on the beach, as it was a great place for all of us to be. My daughter LOVED the playground and played with the other kids. The adults just enjoyed lazing about and having a drink and enjoying the serenity & tranquillity. The resort was full but we felt like we were nearly the only people there.
The town of Port Villa is a 5 minute drive by bus or taxi & we either called Wes or George or just wandered out to the road and in seconds were offered a ride by a passing bus or taxi. We enjoyed the fact that we were a bit further out of town and getting to town is cheap so you still had the peace & quiet as well as being close to the main town if you wanted.
Vanuatu in itself is not a cheap place as you would find in say Thailand but Lagoon Beach was very reasonable and we knew that what we spent there went back to the people that worked there and helped them have a better life.
The resort itself didnt have all the trappings of para sailing, day spa, swim up bar etc but if you want to do that then they are just a stones through away and you can still come back to your quiet peace of island paradise.
I would go back in the blink of an eye as we had a wonderful holiday within the resort and also around the island itself.
Tank you Tumas cannot say enough!
