The Havannah, Samoa Point
BEST resort experience I have ever had!!!!
I have travelled all over the world, and stayed at many 5 * hotels, but this by far was the BEST of the BEST overall experience that I ever have had. I was not expecting it since it was rated 4* (since it doesn’t offer 24 hour reception/room service) and the photos don’t do the resort justice. It is really a 5* ++ experience . I attribute it to leadership of the general manager Frederick. His attention to detail and customer service is far superior to any other experience I’ve had. Every staff member knows your name and go out of there way (thank you and I miss you)! The food is absolutely exquisite and the menu is very extensive offering combinations of flavors that you wouldn’t think would go together but are delightful (try the vanilla prawns) and the breakfast is included (the food was so good I asked for recipes for everything). The grounds and rooms are beautiful too. The linens are soft and perfect. The lots of included water sports. The spa services are wonderful as well. Monday nights they have local music and dancers come that was so much fun. They went out of their way when my flight was cancelled last minute and even upgraded me to the suite with an outdoor tub, private cabana, infinity pool, and beach. I am the sort of traveler that would always want to see a new place, but I will most definitely be going back regularly, this is the best experience (and best value) I have had and recommend it as the #1 choice when planning a holiday.

Excellent place, really hard to fault anything about it. An absolute paradise. Little else in the immediate surrounding area but the resort has everything you need really so not a major issue and adds to the peace and quiet.

Beautiful villa, poor service not value for money
Expensive, not value for money. No-one met us at drop-off point from transport, we couldn’t even see where reception was. Carried own luggage in. Cursory greeting mainly consisted of ensuring that we both signed an indemnity form. Not shown our room facilities. Villa was beautiful: well-appointed, clean inside and spacious. Unfortunately not much else was up to the same standard. Had to constantly re-log on to the Wifi virtually every time it was used. Watered-down liquid soap and body lotion. TV advertised films which were mostly “not available” and TV series with episodes missing. Had to remind restaurant staff repeatedly about drinks orders. They tried to charge us for a drink we had not had. They advertised a complimentary sunset cruise every evening: first evening it could not go because relevant staff member had “gone to pick someone up”. Second evening, cruise sailed without us despite the fact that we arrived early and had checked our booking. Shower ran hot or cold when any other tap was turned on. One of wooden steps down from our villa to the beach was dangerously loose. All of them had muddy footprints on them when we first arrived. Outside barbecue and fridge looked dirty. Staff were all friendly but some of their personal hygiene needs improvement. Transfers were very expensive charged in addition. At check out, told about 3.5% surcharge for all cards, even debit, and they don't take AmEx. Simple improvements could make such a difference.

Ideal honeymoon spot
We enjoyed our honeymoon at The Havannah. Staff were friendly, and room was wonderful- spacious and clean. Personal plunge-pool and private aspect made for a perfect honeymoon location. About 30 mins outside Port Villa, but that was OK since our break was all about relaxing.
