“Good, but needs attention”
Reviewed January 12, 2008

We stayed for 7 nights in early January. On arriving (9:45pm) we were impressed with the resort, a cocktail on arrival, the resort lit up with flares and a smooth check in.
We had room 109 at the Erakor ferry end on the resort (and after talking to many at the resort we had the best rooms) The rooms are comfortable and the view is fabulous, but don’t expect your room to be serviced the same way all the time (one day no bathmat, another no milk etc) the room needed some minor maintenance but overall it was good. Our room was serviced whilst we had breakfast each day (amazing as everything else took so long).
Remember this is Vanuatu and if you come here don’t expect things to happen fast or at all in some cases.
Areas of the resort are well maintained and have obviously had money spent on them (eg the pool complex, Wild Ginger restaurant and the gardens are all well looked after) but a lot of the resort needs a good overhaul (especially water sports with broken Kayaks and damaged sailing boats).
Pool Towels – are in very short supply, get them straight after breakfast or you will have to wait.
We had the all inclusive package (which includes Tusker Beer (good), Australian Wine (good), soft drinks and Local Spirits (very interesting to say the least) which is good value considering the prices charged at Le Lagon. The nightly theme buffet is VT3500 (about $41 AUD). The food is very mediocre, repetitive, bland and oily. If their chefs don’t know how to cook Italian or Tex Mex or what ever, don’t do it! How about some traditional Vanuatu foods that they can cook, show us how good traditional Vanuatu foods can be. If you are not there at 6pm forget it, you wont get a table and you wont get much to eat! The food is one area that they really need to fix. Having said that eat at the Pool BBQ as the food is not too bad there, when they decide to open.
Nothing seems to happen if the F&B Manager is not around. At one stage there were five staff in the pool bar and no one getting drinks (just chatting in Bislama) until the F&B turned up and roasted them but they don’t really care that much.
Breakfast is not too bad but I have never tasted eggs like that or seen them that colour!
If you want or need something keep asking until you get it. This will take some time so be prepared to patient!
Check your bills, things just seem to appear.
Our kids had great fun collecting hermit crabs on the beach in front of our room and also collecting Pipis with the local children.
We had an enjoyable time here but will not return, not exactly sure if we would recommend it. Is it four star? Perhaps not, certainly needs to be a change in attitude from the staff and a lot more training. Because I am on holidays it does not mean I want to wait 45minutes for a beer!
Couple of extra Vanuatu tips. Taxis have no meters (most are old and have no seatbelts) so bargain the fare before getting in. We were asked for Vt1000 to return to Le Lagon from town, this dropped to VT500 as we walked away. Shop when the cruise boats are in town, prices seem cheaper on these days and the locals more friendly

Myself and my partner stayed for ten nights over the Christmas and New Year period. We arrived to a welcome I had not experienced at any other resort. It really did make us feel special and welcome. There was only the two of us getting off the transfer bus yet they had brought out the traditional Vanuatuan band, the porter was rushing for our luggage and a waiter coming from the Lobby with fruit cocktails. Fantastic! We’ve truly arrived in paradise we thought. Unfortunately this service was not to continue throughout our stay.

The general friendliness and helpfulness of the staff leaves a lot to be desired. I understand the pace of life is slower anywhere else other than cities, however, most of the staff seemed as though they really couldn’t be bothered to deal with you or help you and rarely ever smiled. One example (among many unfortunate and frustrating incidents), for instance, was when we went to hire golf clubs. We found the activities person asleep and had to wake him up. When he did finally wake all he could do was grunt at us then picked up his mobile phone and started texting and basically ignored us hoping we’d go away. The staff at the pool bar also aren’t exactly the best advert for happy, smiley, resort staff. Although their job is not the easiest with all the incredibly loud, demanding, brash Australians that swamp the pool bar every afternoon. Waiting times for drinks at the pool bar are unnecessarily lengthy although they do seem quite understaffed on occasions. The one CD at the pool bar got quite tiresome after ten days and at the end of my stay I found I even knew the words!

There is a severe shortage of pool towels at the resort and also towels in your room and on quite a few days we had to ring housekeeping for them to be told they were in the drier and we would have to wait for them. Other days, frustratingly, they simply forgot to leave us towels.

The room we stayed in was room 105. It’s at the Erakor Ferry end of the resort and is definitely the best place (I think) to be. We were absolute lagoon front and had a fantastic view of the lagoon and Erakor Island. I had requested a 100 series room when booking (after reading trip advisor comments). However there were some rooms behind us which were also Lagoon Deluxe rooms and I would imagine their view would be quite limited by the rooms in front, as some of the rooms (ours) are in 2 storey blocks. Our room was beautiful inside and very spacious for two of us. A double and two single beds, one of the single beds in its own closed off alcove area. No bugs nor lizards inside the rooms either! The only issue we had was that our shower didn’t drain properly and left you standing ankle deep in water by the end of it. We asked for this to be fixed three times but to no avail.

We were on the all inclusive package and I would fully recommend it (even though you eat more than needs be) as the prices of the drinks and meals are extortionate. You will easily make your money back on it as our package cost us NZ$75 each per day. For example, lunch at the poolside grill (which is burgers, hot dogs, steak/club sandwiches, wraps & salads) will roughly cost you NZ$20 each and the buffet dinner roughly NZ$50, Seafood nights NZ$75. The buffet dinners were generally good. Themes range from Italian, Tex-Mex, Asian, Seafood, Roast and of course Melanesian. The buffet dinners are on a cycle but only repeat after a week of being there. However on some of the more popular nights such as Italian you do need to get in early as you do tend to be left with bits and pieces. The desserts however are very average and do let it down somewhat and don’t seem to be replenished often. One night we ate in Wild Ginger which is fantastic. The service is an obvious step up from what you’re used to around the rest of the resort and by Vanuatuan standards I would say is first class. There is a surcharge for the all inclusive package residents for dining there but it is small in comparison (approx NZ$14 each) to what you actually get. At the end of our meal, our bill, if we had been paying for it in total would’ve have been NZ$180. The breakfasts are also very good and include a full range of the usual cooked breakfast items as well as a variety of fruit and pastries. We only dined at the buffet lunch once as it wasn’t very inspiring.

At night the resort is quiet. They do put on some entertainment most evenings, e.g. karaoke or cultural dancing etc. but overall it’s peaceful. It is a very different scene from the busy and sometimes rowdy pool bar in the day. The lobby bar is great in the evenings for a nice relaxing drink.

The watersports equipment is very short in supply as they have more broken kayaks, cats, surf skis etc. than they do operating and don’t seem to be making any attempt to fix them. The Reef Lady (glass bottom boat) boat trip the resort offers (NZ$20) up the lagoon is great.

The resort is very picturesque and the gardens well groomed. The pool complex is fantastic with 3 pools and a spa. The main pool could do with a good clean though and is very murky in parts. You don’t exactly want to look through goggles at it whilst you’re in there.

We had an early morning checkout at 5am and unfortunately concierge forgot to make the alarm call as he was asleep. Luckily we had also set our own alarm and made the pick up to the airport on time. Before you check out review your room account regularly, they do seem to add charges to your room that don’t apply. The concierge desk is very understaffed and they do not seem to have had adequate training. They don’t seem to be able to answer most questions about your bill, accommodation or general resort questions I found. The person who books the tours is atrocious. One day I booked a shopping trip into Port Vila and was told to arrive in the lobby at 10am for pick up. We arrived on time and waited for a while and no bus/taxi came so I asked concierge if the bus was coming and he said “yes, it’s not far away” so waited another while and asked again. Only to be told the same thing. We then moved outside to wait and the security guard/porter asked us what we were waiting for. He told us there’s “no shopping trip today!” I went back into to speak to concierge (the same person) to discover this time that there is in fact no shopping trip going today. However he then proceeded to write out a docket for a shopping trip for that day and said to wait for a bus. I assumed he’d make a call to the company they use and we would be duly picked up soon. Not likely! Again after another long wait thanks to the security guard/porter we were told no bus was coming. So, back inside to the concierge person again to find out this time even though he’d written a docket there would be no bus! “There’s no trip going today!” Aaaaarrrgghhhh! He had made no arrangements/calls for the trip for us. I think he just thought we would just go away.and give up. A more senior concierge person eventually stepped in after I was getting extremely annoyed with all the confusion and general lack of can’t be botheredness displayed by concierge staff and made the necessary arrangements for us.

All in all a good holiday, but not fantastic and I wouldn’t return and not exactly sure if I would recommend it. I fail to see how it has earned it’s four stars and the various awards you see furnished around the lobby. Doesn’t service count in ratings? The staff certainly need more training and they need more of them.

Our family of 2 adults and 3 kids stayed for 10 nights in December. It was quiet until just before Christmas (when we were leaving anyway) My husband is not a “Resort” type of person but even he loved Le Lagon.
We booked a bed and breakfast package, we were glad we hadn’t booked the all inclusive package, the buffet dinners aren’t cheap but are repetitive. We ate one night at Wild Ginger, the food was very average for the price paid and very slow to be prepared. The breakfast was good, coffee was brought to the table straight away and stayed hot in a vacuum jug. The kids ate free at lunch and dinner, there was a reasonable choice for them, not just the usual chips with everything. We never had lunch other than a bread roll from the big supermarket (Au Bon Marche Numbatu, a short bus ride away.) Most evenings we caught the ferry to Erakor Island and had dinner there, the prices were cheaper and the food very good. We also ate at Tilly’s in the Chantilly’s Hotel in town, delicious food in a great spot looking out over the water , and a great fish tank to amuse the kids.
The evening entertainment was generally very good indeed and you didn’t have to have eaten at the restaurant to watch it.
The pool area is spectacular, huge for the size of the resort, with plenty of lounges and umbrellas, not always enough pool towels, or someone to give them to you, so get in early and hang on to them for the day.
We booked 2 Lagoon View Rooms. When we first arrived we were allocated 500 numbered rooms which whilst having a view of the lagoon are unrenovated, poky, old and grotty.
Our travel agent had raved about the rooms, how spacious and lovely they were. We immediately took up the issue with the front office staff, who initially reallocated us to 400 series garden view rooms which we didn’t accept as we had booked lagoon view. After some negotiations we agreed to stay in the originally offered rooms on the basis that they would shift us to the Lagoon View rooms (100 numbered rooms) that we had booked, the next day. We were offered a dinner voucher for all 5 of us as compensation.
The next day we moved into two very nice rooms at the Erakor Island end of the resort, initially the children’s room was a bit far away from ours but after a few days they were nearby. (we were offered an upgrade to the renovated garden bungalows at no charge as an alternative) The lesson here is to be sure of what you book, and to politely but firmly make sure you get it!
From 2008 onwards the rooms at the resort are being reclassified to better reflect the standard of the rooms. The 400 and 500 series rooms will be called “standard rooms” the 100 series rooms “Lagoon Superior” and the 600 rooms “Garden Superior”.
When we go again we will book Lagoon Superior, but if you aren’t fussed on having a view the Garden Superior are the same style. I would NEVER book a standard room. The Garden Bungalows are currently being extended and the renovated ones have a nice bathroom, but personally I preferred the Lagoon Superior rooms.
On checkout there were incorrect charges on both our room bills, they were corrected without fuss.
Overall a well laid out and lovely place to stay for a family. Remember this is Vanuatu, things happen slowly here, you can’t expect everything to be right all the time or things to be done immediately. But if you are looking for a laid back holiday in a safe place with friendly welcoming people you have found the right place!

We have just returned from ten days at Le Lagon. We didn't take the all-inclusive option as it seemed very expensive $150 (NZ) each per night extra, but I'm sure if you are a big drinker you could possibly get your money's worth if you think you can cope with the music choice at the bar.

Meals are hugely expensive at 3500 Vatu ($54 NZ) for a very basic themed dinner buffet (pork ribs and cheesecake seem to feature whatever the theme) and if you don't get there early in the evening you literally just get the leftovers. We were disappointed on two occasions to turn up for dinner at 8pm in a restaurant advertised to be open until 10pm and pay that much for the last scrapings and fight among ourselves for the last bread roll.

Breakfasts were always good though, a good selection of juices, fruit and pastries with fantastic bacon and eggs; possibly might have to wait until you had finished breakfast to get some coffee, but it usually turned up sometime.

The resort garden areas and beautiful and extremely well kept, with all rooms well spread around a fairly large area, so none of the rooms really overlook anyone else. We had the deluxe-garden view in the 600 range, (small blocks of 4 rooms - two up and two down) which possibly had some recent minor refurbishments, painted exterior and tiles re-grouted, other than that it was a pretty average and small room. We literally tripped over the bed getting in the door, so some re-arrangement of furniture was necessary. It was clean, new looking curtains and the the furniture was quite nice, all matching in bamboo, but the room itself was a bit 'tired'.

Have stayed in lots of places in many countries and just felt that for the money we paid there weren't any nice touches or luxuries; not a single flower in the room ever; no evening bed turn down service, no free newspapers - literally nothing other than the bare room you paid for. It certainly lacks the 'romance' of many of the other resort I have stayed in and would be very far down my list for my choice of a wedding or honeymoon location.

Laundry facilities were quite poor - most days we were lucky to get fresh towels, they came eventually in dribs and drabs, hand towels in the morning and maybe a floor towel in the afternoon, and maybe some flannels later on, but always something missing. Pool towels were the same, there were never enough to go round and always problems with laundry.

There is actually a very nice 'tiny' bit of white sand beach with shady hammocks in the trees and loungers, but oddly no-one goes there; most people preferring to stick to the pool. The rest of the beachfront is man-made and not exactly an enticing exotic paradise beach.

This resort possibly best suits those whose main aim is to sit in the pool all day and drink their all-inclusive quota. If you really want to sit in a pool all day, get drunk and not really give a care for where in the world you are there are plenty more value for money places you can do this. Be warned they only have one Country and Western CD (music to slit your wrists to) that gets blasted from the pool bar, day and night on a permanent loop. Man you have to be seriously drunk to listen to that for more than two days in a row. I'm still suffering and we stayed away from the pool after day three as we just couldn't take anymore.

Out and about the highlights of our trip: Free ferry to Erakor Island and Roxy's restaurant, Mele-Maat Cascades.

The round the island tour was easily missable, as outside of Port Vila the road turns to dust. A bumpy, bone jarring, eight hour day crammed in a mini-van with eleven other people, with very little to see other than endless coconut plantations and cow pasture with a few stops at private beaches, a local 'restaurant' at Sara Beach where you think you may die if you eat the food (it was fine we survived) and a look at Survivor Vanuata location, a fifteeen minute ride on canoe and a look at some WWII Coke Bottles in an old shack at the side of the road.

I wouldn't recommend to hire a car the roads are atrocious, there's no-where to go, unless it is to another resort and there's not much to see en-route. Most places are not accessible to tourists, the nicest beaches are privately owned and you have to pay or ask permission of the owner to enter.

Overall, it was a good break for us; fairly bland, not great, nothing serious to complain about other than being poor value for money; but in a day we've seen and done Efate and could think of no good reason why we would ever want to go back there.

We (a family of 4, mum, dad an 18 year old and a 16 year old) had 8 wonderful days at Le Lagon. Our stay was split in to two lots of 4 days with a fantastic 3 day trip to Tanna in between. We stayed in a quad room (a double and 2 singles) One single was in the main room with the double with the second single being in a separate area. Even with 2 adults and 2 older teenagers we found the room spacious. Our first 4 days was in a garden room looking out on to the golf course - the setting was pretty. For some reason we got upgraded to a lagoon view room for the second 4 day stay. The setting was unbelievable. You can sit in your own loungers enjoying stunning views of the Erakor lagoon - next time we will pay the extra to make sure we have a lagoon view room. The resort itself in a typical beach resort - lovely pools, beautiful beach with usual sports facilities and the bonus of a 12 hole golf course. The resort would have a solid 4 star rating. The staff are lovely - laid back but very helpful. The buffet breakfasts are great but the lunch and dinner menus are a little limited and the evening buffet is expensive. There is a fusion restaurant which we didn't try but guests who had said it was very good. You have a ton of options for meals other than dining on the resort. We caught the free shuttle ferry across to the Erakor Island resort a few times. The ferry leaves from a wharf about a minutes walk from Le Lagon and takes 5 minutes to cross the lagoon. The trip is very pleasant and well worth it. We also ventured in to Port Vila a few times where there are a number of good French style restaurants on the waterfront. The taxi costs 500 vatu (NZ$ 7) each way and you can easily hail one down day or night. Aside from the gorgeous resort and lovely staff what I liked about Le Lagon was you had the option of relaxing in the beautiful resort setting or, when you wanted to get out and about, you could very quickly and cheaply go in to Port Vila. We loved our stay at the Le Lagon and are definitely planning to return.

Overall Le Lagon is nice. New.
might be the nicest in Port Vila.
New refurbished room, easy ferry to erakor, plenty facilities etc.

A few problems we encounter that might be useful for other travellers to anticipate :

1. Our flights from Tanna island to Port Vila was delayed for 1.5 hrs, which is very common.
When we arrived it was just before 2.30pm. and we were starving and tired.
We said we want to use our lunch card straight away.
But they refused us to have the 'free lunch' that was supposedly already included in the package, on the basis that the pool restaurant has already JUST closed (close at 2:30pm) and we can't get anythign for lunch. No exception.
So we decided we'll just get a piece of bread roll and butter and were charged $1.50 for it.

Overall we only have 3 lunches , since we just missed the 1st day and leave early on the last day. eventhough 5 lunches supposed to be included.

2. When they handed us an envelope in the reception at check in, we just assumed that everything was already there, lunch cards, Hideaway island tour voucher etc...
but when we open, there was Nothing but 'welcome' letter.
The 2nd day we were ready to have lunch, but without this lunch cards, we can't order anything. so.. while my family is waiting in the sun (pool restaurant) for more than half hour, i was waiting in the reception for them to produce the lunch cards.
They only gave us 3 lunch cards, knowing that i've missed the first one and will miss the last one.

3. The kids club was not running on time, or not running at all.
a few times when we got there to join their schedule, there was nothing going on. No coconut harvest demonstration, later rescheduled for 3pm instead of 11pm as it says.
the Excursion visit to the school activity was not running on time, waiting for the driver and anybody that might turn up.
It end up that my family are the only people turn up.
we were charged 400 vatu each even for the 2yr old (total for a family 1600 vatu). The reason for the money was for transportation AND school contribution.

It was a nice visit though for the 1st school (Mele primary school). really memorable. the kids there are wonderful.
however the 2nd visit was cut short for reason 'not enough time',
but on the way home, we had 2 stops around 20 min each because the staff would like to buy something from the market and the drink factory.

And we had to pay the bus driver the full amount 1600 vatu.
Not sure if he's gonna share it with the school.
we were running short of Vatu, and ask if it could be charged to our hotel account. but they said no. luckily we just had enough.

4. We came up to the concierge desk asking what the weather are gonna be for the next 5 days , so we could plan which day we want to go for the Hideaway island tour that already included.

No staff had any clue where to find the weather forecast.
It was in their own website !
But the concierge just ignored me eventhough he was on the computer. "will be fine, trust me".
On their notice board, there was a print out from weather beaureau, but 2 days outdated. when i asked for a new one he said 'tomorrow'.
I had to buy a local newspaper from the hotel shop to get a weather forecast that says a few showers in nxt 2 dys.

4. Hideaway island tour was nice, but the bus was overloaded with the hotel guess and the hotel weren't prepared to hire another bus. When they said they're heading back at 2pm, they already left by 1:45pm. luckily we could join the 2nd bus at 4pm. we were on the wharf by 3:45pm. but this time they left a little over 4pm.
At the end of our stay we were charged for the tour, eventhough it's already included in the package, thus we don't have to pay anymore. It was rectified though, but since it was a busy time when everybody was checking out, we were running 45 min behind to catch our flight home.

5. The food are excellent. expensive, but good.
but when we order ice cream for dessert. they came right after main meal arrive.
we had to ask them to keep it in the freezer until later after we finish main meal.. later it arrived melted !

The staffs are nice and friendly.
obviously the hotel needs to put an investment into inhouse training for the staff.
may need more staff at the reception so people don't have to wait around for a long queue.

The staff at the desk are seemed overstressed.
Later when i saw the hotel manager (not a niVanu) tried to order around the hotel musicians, boy.. he looked stressed too..
There was a big function hosting the island expats when i stayed there.
The function seemed nice and went well. (by the beach).
but the preparation must have stressed out the manager and the hotel staffs.
I guess for people that are not used to the 'demanding' western life style this must be hard for them.
But again, that's why the hotel should give them more training, so it become easier for them.

Nevertheless, this hotel is good.
It needs a better kids club facility (like playground)
and overall staff training.

  • Liked — Lagoon access, starfishes, canoe, beach, New rooms, ferry to erakor
  • Disliked — staff lack of training, a bit disorganised at checking in and out. kids club needs more playground facility.

My husband and I spent a wonderful 2 weeks at Le Lagon in September and have just booked again for next year. We had an all-inclusive package in a Garden Bungalow but this time are opting for accommodation and breakfast only. Main reason for this is we found the buffet dinners a bit average and 'same same', even though they have theme nights which include local entertainment. Breakfast was good, although we often had to ask for crockery, glasses, cutlery and juice to be restocked. The poolside lunches were very good. We highly recommend the Wild Ginger, both a-la-carte and teppenyaki, my husband had a wonderful 65th birthday dinner there, complete with cake. Staff were friendly and accommodating and the resort is well laid out amongst a garden setting. Our bungalow was well appointed although obviously in need of some refurbishment, which is currently underway. The accommodation and all facilities and amenities were always well kept and clean. The pool area was fantastic and never crowded, although it was sometimes difficult to get pool towels. A trip over to Erakor Island is a must, especially for the snorkelling. We got around by hiring a taxi and used the same driver the whole time. We found this cheaper and more flexible than an organised trip. Places worth seeing are Mele Cascade Falls and Hideaway Island, again for the snorkelling and underwater post office! Shopping is not as cheap as Phuket, Bali etc but you can pick up some bargains although there is no bartering. We ate in town a few times and enjoyed all the meals which generally cost about $40-$50 each including entree, main course and drinks. We also visited a few villages and it was nice to get to know the local people. Next year we are taking our 14yo granddaughter so she can practice her French! If anyone has any queries, please feel free to contact me.
