This was our third visit to Holiday Inn Vanuatu and once again it was wonderful. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is great and reasonably priced. Our first night we had Dinner under The Stars on the Beach which was amazing. It was a show and dinner on the beach under fairy lights strung between trees. It... More

You get to holiday at the Holiday Inn, it caters for small, medium and large families. The kids club ladies are so welcoming and nothing was ever too much of a problem. Free water sports are popular as are the organised activities on the beach or just lazing around the pool (provided its not raining) is relaxing. We were lucky... More

Have just returned from excellent 8 days @ Holiday Inn Resort. The rooms were quite adequate, clean & well serviced daily. You could not find better staff both for assistance & friendliness. Buffet breakfast was great & could last you out the day if you so desired. Dinned several nights & enjoyed the meals offered.Outdoor activities catered for all @... More

We just had a fantastic long weekend in Port Vila from Brisbane. We stayed at the Holiday Inn in a family overwater villa. It was worth the upgrade. The kids loved it and the villa was large and traditional Vanuatu style. Just beautiful waking up and looking our across the lagoon. The staff were so friendly helpful and happy and... More

Lucky enough to stay on this amazing resort for a week. From the resort manager, bar staff, restaurant staff, pool bar staff, activitites staff, housekeeping staff and even the taxi team on site - the service was the best. This was the most welcoming, friendly and beautiful resort you could hope to stay at

Only 5 nights but should have been 10. From the moment we arrived the vibe and the level of hospitality was out of this world. Every moment of every day we were made to feel special. The staff were warm, friendly, open and happy to share their stories. So great to learn about the culture of the islands as well... More

A quick get-away to catch up with my family was easy. The welcome is thrilling, a troupe of fire twirlers entertain and mesmerise the rug-rats as we suck in the warm Vanuatu night. Hammocks sway serenely, with my grand-daughter's rather perilously close to tipping as the lagoon's water gently ebbs and flows on our private beach. Kayaking and stand-up paddle... More

We wanted to visit today for lunch as a group of 10. The hotel was very quiet when we arrived (ie not a guest in sight) and when we asked for directions to the restaurant we were told there was a fee of 400 Vatu per person to have lunch (about $50 for our group). We asked if it was... More

Dear travelnutsydney, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It is disappointing to read that you and your group were not able to enjoy lunch with us when you visited Port Vila.

Stayed at the Holiday Inn late July 2016 as a couple. Nice, clean hotel. We were in a resort view room. Can be noisy late at night if people were talking when walking down the corridor to their room. Dinner at the restaurant was expensive. We didn't eat there. Was $50 AUS for 2 burgers. We had read this before... More

Just spent a week at the newly opened Holiday Inn. A few teething problems but nothing to make me write a bad review about it. The resort is lovely, clean and inviting. We were told that there is a lot of new staff and this was evident a few times but all the staff were more than accommodating and willing... More
