Thank you Mariner Apartments, we have just returned to Melbourne after a week with you (got home last night) and were very sad to leave. We have visited Port Vila several times and usually stay at the Grand Hotel. However, staying at The Mariner Apartments, gave us the extra freedom to be able to have breakfast at 'home' most days and to cook a couple of evening meals. It was great fun being able to walk down the hill to the market and purchase fresh local produce to cook. The Apartments are located very close to town, opposite the Waterfront Bar and Grill, which is a great place to eat. A short walk from the Brewery (Bar) and also the Market and the Ferry which takes you across to Irririki Island at any time of the day (only about 5 minutes walk from each of these). Our Apartment was large, clean, cool and well serviced and the staff were friendly and helpful. We felt there were a couple of very small things missing, and passed our ideas on to the staff, who rang us the very next day to thank us for our input and to say our suggestions would be put in place. I would recommend The Mariner Apartments to anyone who wants to stay close to town. They also provide beach towels, so no need to take your own. The pool is basic, but still clean, and refreshing after a long day out sightseeing. I think that management may need to consider block out curtains in the warmer months of the year, as I think the rooms will get a bit too hot in the late afternoon (however, there are efficient air conditioners in the rooms). If you haven't been to Port Vila, do yourselves a favour ... the place is so beautiful, the people are the friendliest people on earth and there is so much to see and do.
