We stayed our first night in Port Vila at the Hotel Olympic to get our bearings and so we could see what the restraurants and bars of Port Vila were like. Hotel Olympic was perfect for this purpose. Central as you can get, easy walk to the harbour, restaurants etc.
We booked a studio apartment to share with 3 adults and were pleasantly surprised by how spacious a plush it was for the price. Comfy big beds with clean fresh linnens and nice covers. Much much cheaper than a much smaller, crumbier room at one of the large hotels in port vila (we also stayed at Le Meridien). Full kitchen facilities, fridge, airconditioning. Bathroom was clean and functional and also a good size.
There is a cute bbq area upstairs with plants, seating etc.
Service was fine - we didn't actually need much service except check in and out, which went smoothly. We had booked through the hotel's website as we found that was the easiest way to ensure all 3 could stay in the room with out being charged an 'additional guest' surcharge, as other 'discount' booking sites did.
The included breakfast involved getting vouchers from the desk and going across the road to a chinese restaurant, where we got a nice traditional breakfast spread including bacon/eggs/fruit/yogurht/muslie/toast and juices. Was very tasty and good after a big night out on the town.
