Le Lagon is well located-just out of town and I would describe it as adequate but not 5 star. Certainly nothing too dreadful happened to us to spoil our holiday but it could have been better.
The rooms-we had 2 "adjoining " lagoon superior rooms which means one on top of the other (not actually connected). They were not brand new and could do with a renovation. They were however very clean with a lovely view. The upstairs room with queen bed and balcony was smaller. The kids were downstairs in the bigger room (you wouldnt want this with young kids).
We used the resort as a base to go out every day and for that it was fine. Many of the other guests were the same.
For this reason the resort did not seem as crowded as you might expect in a school holiday period.
However there did seem to be a core group of Aussie (mainly) tourists who spent every day eating their own weight at the breakfast buffet(and that was a feat as they were generally very overweight) and then spent the rest of time at the pool drinking. I presume they put their kids in the kids club. If thats your kind of holiday I suppose it would be perfect. (I think they would probably be better off in Bali)
I went in the pool once for an intro scuba lesson(free) and the water was filthy. None of us would go in it again.
The food at Wild Ginger (first night) was average, overpriced and the service was the worst we had anywhere. The breakfast buffet was fine. We tried the dinner buffet 2 nights when we were too exhausted to go out-it was ordinary but at least they didnt charge for kids(12 and 15). The oysters were off and I spat mine out immediately-it was the only bad food we had anwhere in Vanuatu. We ordered pizza from room service another night -they were not great and it took a long time.
They had some entertainment one night (dancers) which were good.
Best option for lunch is to catch the free ferry to Erakor (a very basic kind of place) and have something there (other than going into town)
The laundry prices were outrageous so if you are staying for a short period take enough clothes to avoid it.
Taxis are available at reception and if you walk up the drive you can catch a local bus. The gardens are lovely and well tended by the staff. Kayaks are freely available but the catamarans were broken or the one that worked was always booked.
Currently they are building decks outside the buffet restaurant but this didnt interfere with our activities. My son spent an hour or so talking with the workers in their lunch break and drinking coconut juice-it was the highlight of his stay.
We loved Vanuatu and will go back next year but will avoid "Le lagon" . (especially in school holidays!)
