Our third visit to Vanuatu and we loved our stay at Mangoes. Well maintained resort, friendly and helpful staff. Ideal for couples. The new apartments are also very impressive. Only downside is the barking dogs in the area.

Have just returned from a 10 day stay at Mangoes and we really could not fault the resort at all. One reviewer has mentioned being disappointed at the Resort being in the middle of suburbia - for us this is what the experience was all about - being part of Vanuatu. Our room (Unit 8) was clean, tidy, and had everything we required, including a comfortable bed. While all the rooms look out into a pleasant garden we were pleased we had asked for the Lagoon View option as it did have a nice private outlook away from other units. We didn't feel we missed out by not having the plunge pool option as the Resort has 3 pools and we only used one of them anyway!! The pool was always clean and the surroundings decorated beautifully each morning with hibiscus flowers - a lovely touch. The staff were superb, friendly and helpful and always pleased to see us - just a delightful experience. The restaurant was very good with an extensive and varied menu - just loved the tuna!! and we enjoyed dining there. The light breakfast is exactly what it says and just what we expected, and as we only ever eat a light breakfast anyway, we found it quite adequate but there is a good variety of other options for breakfast at a reasonable price. Loved the coffee!! We can see why some people have given a less than excellent rating for location, but for us it was ideal - away from the bustle of the township (not to mention the diesel fumes!) and only a 10 minute downhill walk directly to town. Absolutely no problem for anyone who enjoys a bit of a walk and there is always the option of the bus back to the resort if the uphill seems too much at the end of a long day. The buses are readily available and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing with others - we had some interesting side-trips dropping off the local people at their homes. So to Ros and all the Team - Tank u tamas. We would love to come back.

Room Tip: The Lagoon View Rooms face out from the complex and are therefore more private. We didn't feel any need for a Lagoon View Pool Room as the 3 pools within the complex are adequate. Units further along from Unit 8 had more view of the lagoon, but we were very satisfied.

Stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed our stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. Everyone in the bar/restaurant were always happy, and it is refreshing to have smiling faces serving you. Jenny's smile in particular is infectious. A 10 minute walk into town or a $1.50 bus ride.

Everything can be booked from here. Food was top class with a different special each day.

The light breakfast was sufficient and tasty, fresh cut fruit, homemade muesli, and yoghurt.

It is great to have the owners around the place. Very helpful with any enquiries and seemed genuinely intetrested in the guests. It adds a personal touch, rather than the big chains with managers you never see unless there is a problem.

We would definitely stay again. Well done!

Just spent a week at Mangoes Resort Vanuatu. Decided to stay at Mangoes because of all the positive reviews on trip advisor. Was a little disappointed, the resort was right in the middle of suburbia, surrounded by local houses (but so were a lot of the resorts). The room looked very tired and in need of a facelift, lounge very uncomfortable and white quilt cover was quite dirty. Probably should have said something about it the day we arrived but didn't want to rock the boat on day 1. Continental breakfast extremely poor, toast, muesli or fruit. Food average, the place lacked some atmosphere. On the positive side our apartment was very spacious with our own plunge pool. Melanesian tours arranged some wonderful tours for us while we were there. Lelepe Island tour and Circle Vanuatu tour excellent. Would I go back to Vanuatu Yes, Would I stay at Mangoes again - No

Away from the Main Street. A short bus ride to town. Lovely staff, lovely environment and accommodation. Yummy food so very fresh. Nice spacious villas. Very private resort. Don't pay for staff to braid hair as they can't. Staff was extremely helpful when needing help with transfers etc.

Room Tip: Would not change a thing except don't get hair braided by staff as it was terrible. The manager gave my money back after she looked at it.
