We stayed in a two roomed apartment with family, only a few steps from one of the two swimming pools. Dealing with the oppressive heat (42deg) and 100% humidity was a little tough for someone from the deep south of NZ and there was no air-con in our unit, only a ceiling fan to circulate the heat, so my wife...

We stayed at Poppys for 1 week in the school holidays, family of 5, in a 3 bedroom apartment right beside the water, it was lovely and spacious, with 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, lounge and large deck. Very good maid service, she even washed our dishes each day, always felt lovely and clean. Was a very relaxing spot right on...

Situated on the lagoon but still inside Port Vila, with lovely views, a small beach front and a nice pool area Poppy's was the perfect combination of resort and hotel. By this I mean that while we were at Poppy's we could bask in the sun and feel like we were a million miles away from civilization when in fact...

We spent a week at Poppy's in one of the lagoon view rooms. It was very clean, the staff were helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our week. A couple of warnings. On several nights there were wildly barking dogs which went on for several hours, so take ear plugs just in case. This seemed to be prevalent at many of...

We were really pleased with Vanuatu as a holiday destination and Poppy's as a place to stay. It's small and intimate, in a great location and with fantastic service. Keith looked after us with tours (there are some great options) and travel, and kept guests entertained. We checked out a few of the larger hotels and feel we made a...

The resort itself was lovely and peaceful, very small in the bottom section near the lagoon. Beautiful gardens, friendly staff. The food was very poor, not well prepared and small selection. Good location short walk to town for better food or buses easy to catch at the front gate. Getting to the front gate is a very steep uneven driveway...

We stayed 6 nights at Poppys. Lovely place and wonderful staff/facilities. The complex is a nice small family run resort, quiet and discrete. There is a nice mix of units to suit both the family size, view and budget. You can walk into Port Villa in around 15-20 minutes. Nothing is too much bother for the staff who go out...

We stayed at Poppy's for 7 days during August. We found it to be quite lovely. We had a room downstairs around the pool which was perfectly placed for access to Reception and the lagoon. We had complimentary breakfasts of fruit, lime juice tea or coffee and croissant or toast with jam. The driveway is a little steep and my...
