We stayed in the two bedroom apartment No 1. Easy access to the pool and dining. Everything was clean, but no air-conditioning. the only problem with Poppy's is the hill you need to get up to go out. If you book a bus they come down to get you, otherwise you have a big hike up a big hill. The... More

The resort is very pleasant and within walking distance to town. The staff are friendly enough but not in any hurry to help out (island time). We found the evening meals to be very disappointing as the chef seemed to crucify everything so we had to go off the premises for these. Continental breakfast was part of our package but... More

Excellent location, friendly staff & clean, comfortable accommodation. Food was excellent & staff very accommodating. Kids enjoyed the painting & cooking activities & the Poppy's island night was very enjoyable & reasonably priced. Great location a short walk/bus ride from the town Centre. Our massages & pedicures were very enjoyable & good prices. The best thing about Poopy's is the... More

The resort was a great place to have a family holiday. Our lagoon beach front Vila was almost perfect. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Breakfast never changed and could have done with a little more variety. Block out blinds in the bedrooms would have been great too. The opportunity to have a relaxing massage was great too. The...

The staff here really made it so friendly. We stayed 4 nights (the start of our trip) and on reflection Poppys was the best. It is all so relaxed. The only resort where we really talked to other guests. This helped with getting tips about Port Villa.

Here for just 3 days prior to our Tanna trip. Grounds were very well kept and nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and they have made a fairly nice beach area which you can lounge on under the shade of a large tree, and provides a nice launching area for the canoes. But I found the water very murky... More
