The Melanesian Port Vila Hotel, Port Vila
Outstanding5.0 / 5
Close to town
Stayed there 4 nights total. Beds were firmer than usual, but everything else was great. Wonderful selection of fruits, bread, cereal, etc for breakfast. Lunch meal specials were a good price, but we usually ate dinners elsewhere. Room was clean and service was great. Short walk to town and a great location for our visit.

Decent hotel but terrible internet.
The hotel is very good but the internet (both free and paid) is very poor. Slow.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Highly recommended
The Melanesian was a fantastic place to stay. Close enough to the action of Port Vila, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. Service by all staff was friendly and prompt. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink. The lobby area was comfortable and they had free wifi. Many guests spent time there as a result. There was a tour desk too if required. The room was clean and relatively modern. Australian tv channels and foxtel free of charge. They had a safe in the room too which was helpful. Daily cleaning and changing of towels/ bedding and toiletries was a plus. The bed was comfortable and tidy. Balcony area looked out on the pool which was cleaned each morning. Good temperature and some shade inm the afternoon. Comfy lounges and great drink and food specials each day. Continental brekky was included in our price and we highly recommend the fish-shaped pancakes. Delicious! They also arranged a cheap taxi to the airport. If we went back to vila again we would stay at the melanesian.

Poor1.0 / 5
Melanesian Hotel - treated without consideration
I arrived on 10 August, having booked and paid for 14 nights. I was advised that, due to a "technical difficulty" (overbooking) I had to be moved to another hotel for 3 nights. On the second evening, I was advised that my room was now available, however I stayed that night at the other hotel and moved to the Melanesian the following morning. After one night, I was advised that I had to move my room - I refused.
