My daughter and I recently spentb7 nights at the Holiday Inn. We had the most amazing time. From the minute we arrived to check out the staff were so friendly and accommodating. Buffet breakfast was awesome and the resort very clean and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble. Would defiantly return.

Stayed: January 2013

Good Morning Mandy T

Thank you for your 'wonderful' review.

The people of Vanuatu are certainly very warm and genuinely friendly which they bring to work everyday as you found out! Sounds like you had a break with your daughter and experienced quite a bit of what Vanuatu has to offer.

Look forward to welcoming you both back in the near future.

Last week My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu, we are well travelled and have stayed in many resorts overseas and in Australia, this resort is now our favourite! The overwater bungalow was more than worth the cost, it was fantastic! The service was great, the breakfast was amazing, the location was perfect. The free daily activities were awesome and the free water sports were also a nice change. We renewed our wedding vows on the grounds and thanks to Janelle our coordinator it was just beautiful, a very relaxed and happy day. Our stay was wonderful, we are already organising a return visit later this year. A huge thank you to all the staff who made our holiday so perfect, truly a credit to you all!

Room Tip: For couples! definitely an overwater bungalow.

Stayed at the holiday inn between the 5th - 13th Jan 2013. We were in a family suite. Both rooms were roomy, kids were happy with the bunk beds, as I with 2 showers. Pool was fine, entertained kids for hours as did the activities in the resort. The only disappointing aspect was the restaurant for evening meals, quite boring. The only good night was the Chef's choice which was a Saturday night, there was a lot of variety and very tasty food. The ala carte could've been better. The entertainment on the lobby bar is very good, and for parents with young children the music stops at 9.00pm. Staff are all very friendly as are the taxi drivers. Hire a taxi driver for the day from the resort as they will give you the better deal.

Room Tip: If you want a pool view make sure to request it.

Good Morning soula a

Thank you for the review.

The kids Suites continue to be a big favourite of the families with the purpose built bunk beds, playstation, and games.

Hope to welcome you back to Vanuatu in the near future.

My partner and I spent 8 nights at the Holiday Inn with my daughter and I have to say we had a fantastic time. The staff were very helpful, the grounds well kept and the atmosphere relaxed. My 11yr old daughter spent some time in the kid's club and was extremely well cared for so thank you Holiday Inn and staff for a lovely time.

Good Afternoon Barney B

Thank you for your 'great' review.

We are lucky enough to have some very proud gardeners some of them have been with us since 1980 so they take the care of the gardens very seriously!

The kids club being open from 8am-9pm free of charge certainly makes it a very good option for the parents wanting a little time to go and have a play on the kayaks or a quiet poolside drink.

Hope to welcome the three of you back in the future.

We wanted to go away somewhere in July and our travel agent suggested staying at the Holiday Inn Vanuatu. The people who worked there were very friendly and helpful.
One night our 6 year old daughter accidently smashed a glass and we rang the reception and the cleaner was there in about 3 minutes.

There was a fantastic place where you could dine. The food was amazing!!!
It's set right by the lagoon where you can kayak and sail a catamaran.
Once we went out on a catamaran and we got stuck because there was no wind. Night was falling and the staff knew we were gone so they came out on a speedboat and towed us back to the hotel.

The pool is located next to the beach by the lagoon. The weather was perfect and the day we were leaving the airport bus was there in time.

If we ever visit Vanuatu again we'll definitely stay in the Holiday Inn.

Good Afternoon walovelace

Thank you for your review.

The resort being set on a tidal lagoon makes it a very and safe environment for both the kayaks and catarman's as you found out we can come get you very easily if you do get stuck!

Hope to welcome you back to Vanuatu in the near future.
