Thank you making us feel so welcome and rested during our stay. The staff are happy to share their beautiful island with us, always accommodating to guests needs in a friendly manner.

We travelled with a family of 5 teens and the resort was perfect. The food at Azure restaurant was superb and probably the best in Port Villa, but could do with a side salad. Service was typical Island style so a little on the slow side but always friendly and eager to help. My only criticism would be that it... More

Thanks very much for your positive feedback, it was certainly a pleasure to have your family stay at our resort. We have recently upgraded the engine on our boat to a nice new modern 4 stroke, and its much more quiet, we just wish we could put a muffler on some of the entertainment venues across the water, as on...

So glad we got to return to Iririki this visit after the damage caused by Cyclone Pam! The accommodation and amenities have been upgraded without losing the wonderful island character we love! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, hospitality, gorgeous views, the proximity to town and the snorkelling... so relaxing! The new newly built Spa on the highest point of the... More

Resurrected our holiday here after swiftly departing a hugely disappointing resort we had originally booked. Modern, clean water bungalow with great views, quality towels & bed comfort. Local staff were smiling, helpful, professional and humble. Restaurant in superb location with decent buffet breakfast options though we strongly suggest introduction of a fresh fruit/vegetable juice and smoothie table, and fresh coconut... More

It really was a pleasure to have you stay - You certainly touched the hearts of several of our staff, your generosity is greatly appreciated and wont be forgotten. Unfortunately, children are difficult for us to control, and really are the responsibility of the parents, but we will endeavor to encourage parents to take their children to the sunset pools...

We took the ferry over to the island. And after paying for the visit (get coupons towards drinks and lunch) We walked over to the far beach and did some snorkelling. Good fish and coral outcroppings, but worth watching the sightseeing boats to see where they go! The walk out before you start swimming is tricky. Need boots or shoes.... More

We recently returned from 5 days at Iririki Island Resort. I was wondering how things would be post TC Pam but found everything excellent as usual. The grounds were well kept and the staff were great. the only downfall for me was the change of the second restaurant to a casino. This is probably because I don't like them but... More
