My new wife and I honeymooned in Santo and we all we want to do now, is go back to Vanuatu!
Want to thank Phill, Charmaine and the rest of the crew at CQ's! - we were made so welcome over the new years period.
The diving was amazing and we quickly became friends with Vuti, our dive guide! Very friendly and professional.
Anyone who is wanting to visit Santo, should look at Coral Quays for accommodation. The island is not built up for commercial tourism, its lovely that it isn't to be honest!
Luganville contains local type markets, essential grocery needs, drug stores and local Kava bars!
So those who are looking for a large tourist resort type accommodation, potentially not the place for you.
Rooms are clean and well presented, possibly minor details such as dated bedding, curtains etc but over all, rooms that are clean, ceiling fan and air con was a welcome..! Our fridge did not get very cold and would have been good if our fridge produced ice.
Overall we loved our stay and would recommend Coral Quays!

Room Tip: Ask for aircon!

If you visit Vanuatu - Island hopping is the thing you should do. Anyways it goof to make pre arrangements when going to smaller Islands (confirm, bookings, flights etc). Santo is good place as a base camp in Vanuatu and Coral Quays is perfect base camp in Santo. The Staff are very helpful and they are keen for help you what ever you want to do. The owner is not pushing you to use their services - they are more than helpful to tell you about other options, places and possibilities in Santo. Dive shop, -gear and -instructor seems to be 1st class and super pro comparing for those that we used (because they were cheaper). If you want to take the diving course - this is the right place. Bungalows are clean, basic and ok value for couples and families. Food is not - the menu is too complicated that the cook just can't handle it. They should go back to basics because then it would work very well and going to city for a dinner wouldn't be the 1st option. There are nice places to stay in Santo but staying in Luganville and near services is a very good thing to do after you have arrived to Santo and before leaving the islands. Coral Quays is the best place in Luganville. And it's easy - you don't have to worried about the thing.

This was our second trip to Vanuatu and we decided to include Santo in our itinerary. On our last visit we stayed at a 5 star resort and a 3 star. We found the 5 star flash enough but quite impersonal and lacking in other ways so this time we decided to just stay with middle of the road. Coral Quays ticked all the boxes in terms of our requirements. The room was very comfortable, so was the bed and we had plenty of hot water! The staff were very friendly and attentive but not in your face and nothing was too much trouble. The food was great and we never had a bad dining experience (I highly recommend the the Fillet Mignon!) Phil and Charmaine were awesome hosts and good fun too.
The diving experience was great too and Michael the Divemaster was a mine of information. We dived on 2 really amazing reefs and as I'm not the most confident of divers I can say that I always felt safe and in good hands. All in all it was a very comfortable place to base ourselves for the many activities that are available on Santo.
What you have to realise here is that things work on Vanuatu time. There isn't the big city down the road to cater for your every need. It's just a lovely step back in time. A chance to escape the rat race and contemplate the importance of just being. We met a range of very cool people at CQR and we had an awesome time. We'll be back!

No neither do I but that is what was served to us on a sunset platter! The accompanying biscuits were pliable too. We had a waterfront room which would be better described as a roadside room. The road is between the hotel and the rather dingy waterfront. The soft bed was not very comfortable and the shower very old fashioned with a plastic/ nylon curtain that wrapped itself round you as you showered. There was an overall tired look to the hotel and the pool was out of action as they were digging up the area around it.
In fairness the only staff member who served us the whole time we were there tried hard and was pleasant.

We spent 10 days at the Coral Quays resort. It was a great base for all the things we wanted to do while we stayed on Santo. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. The owners are great people and very helpful...full of good advice and they have the wellbeing of their guests to the forefront. The dive experiences they provide are outstanding and their dive master is very good at what he does and a top bloke as well. This isn't a 5 star resort (so don't have 5 star expectations), but it is a very comfortable and relaxing place to stay and has everything you could ever need. They'll even pack a lunch for you at a very reasonable price if you go out on day trips. Would I stay here again? Definitely!
