relaxing venue - eat elsewhere
As of August 2015, there are new owners - now owned by the same company that has the Melanesian. The rooms were nicely presented and the atmosphere very relaxed and friendly. Free wifi that worked well in the restaurant area. Drinks were reasonably prices and service was warm and friendly. The hotel is low-key and has a nice boutique feel, situated ocean-front. I thought the food was very poor and my advice would be to eat elsewhere. Most dishes were well below par. The free continental breakfast was ok except all the fruits were canned. This might be a temporary thing as many fruits are not available at the moment because cyclone Pam severely damaged most of the tree crops on Efate. Overall, a great place to relax, meet friends and a great launching point for a Port Vila experience.

Free wifi is quite frustrating - limited to restaurant area n speed is poor. Also inconvenience of having to re-log in everytime you power off laptop or leave the restaurant area

nice outlook
An enjoyable place to stay with a nice outlook and location, restaurant was reasonably priced and food was enjoyable, as we had an early flight the kitchen made us a platter of fruit and muffins the night before so we did not miss out on breakfast
