We stayed at Bokissa after researching all of the resorts in Santo. First off, the resort is not your typical 5 star...in Vanuatu I find it hard to believe that anyone could live up to a 5 star rating as things so often go wrong. However we are pretty relaxed and this did not bother us. If you are the type of traveller where things must be perfect...give Santo a miss. That said, I found less went wrong at Bokissa than many other places. We spoke to people that stayed at multiple resorts on Santo (and we visited a couple of the other island ones for meals) and found that our views were shared by them as well. Bokissa is where you will get some of the best (consistent) food, definitely the best snorkelling, and also service. Do not get me wrong, I am not convinced that it is all worth the high price tag, but it is a lovely place nonetheless and we enjoyed Vanuatu in particular. I would also note that we preferred Santo to Vila - we like to do activities and see the culture and we felt this was more possible on Santo than in Vila.
