We spent 2 nights at the Holiday Inn on our arrival in Vanuatu at the start of our 2 week trip.
The hotel is a "Holiday Inn" it is large and really does not give the "island" feel that I was looking for. I can understand that families on a vacation would enjoy the resort - for travelers - I prefer a smaller place with more atmosphere where it is easy to meet others.
Our room with a Lagoon View was basic - all rooms except the end units have connecting doors - and ours had a distinct musty smell. It was clean and we were able to have wifi in our room which was a nice touch for a chain resort.
The front desk staff were very accommodating - the pool bar staff had a very poor attitude - could care less if we were there sitting at the bar or not - totally ignoring their guests.
All in all - for a family vacation - it is OK - for a traveler - not recommended.
