My husband and I stayed in a spa chalet at this resort in Vanuatu in August 2011 for a 10 day vacation. It was fantastic, and we would return in a heartbeat! (I am a bit delayed with submitting this review - ignore the "Sept 2013" date as it was the earliest I could choose on the Trip Advisor form).
The setting and island is beautiful, the staff friendly, the chalets were shabby chic (rustic yet very comfortable and had everything you could need) - we particularly loved the open air shutters (no glass windows) which meant you could hear the water lapping the rocks in the lagoon when you were in bed which lulled us to sleep.
Other bonuses include: free ferry to the main island for trips to the supermarket, local marker, exploring the island etc, free wi-fi in the reception area, free use of beach equipment - snorkels, see-through plastic bottomed kayaks to paddle around the island/lagoon etc. Great selection of excursions that could be booked through the resort.
There were lots of families there with young children - it is a very safe and family friendly resort, on its own exclusive use island, with shallow lagoon waters on the beach for a good way out which meant safe swimming/paddling/snorkelling (splashing kids could very safely be supervised from the sun loungers) - we would love to return one day with our young family.
