I came here for an island night dinner and entertainment and had a great time. All the staff were so very friendly and the food was amazing. I had the beef which was moist and tender and delicious. The different vegetables and salads were also great. I had too much to eat it was all so good. There was also...

Large hotel room that was very relaxed with nice views. The buffet breakfast was delicious with a few different options to choose from and was easy to organise tours with the front desk. Close to Port Vila shops and markets

My friends and I were made to feel incredibly welcome from the moment we set foot in this resort. We enjoyed canoeing early in the morning watching the sun rise out on the lagoon as well as the spacious kitchen and living area in our apartment. The staff were extremely lovely and helpful (calling us buses and making restaurant reservations),...

Stayed a few weeks ago with my husband, daughter, and her little boy, Jimmy. The staff were really friendly, and we enjoyed the happy hour cocktails, the massages, and the lovely infinity pool.

This was my family's first ever proper holiday together - we chose Poppy's and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Set on a tranquil Lagoon in a gorgeous tropical setting, Poppy's is far more welcoming than a larger, commercial Resort. The staff were incredibly warm and made us (especially our young children) feel comfortable immediately. Waking up every morning to the...
