Aore Island Resort, Aore Island
Perfect hosts in a great location
The resort was wonderful, snorkelling was good and there were plenty of other activities (day spa, world war two bunkers, diving, day trips to Santo, etc., etc., etc.) to keep you entertained. However, what really impressed us was the staff. I arrived having just put my back out. Everyone was extremely kind and helpful. Uncooked rice put into a plastic bag in a pillow case was microwaved for me as a heat pack. When shops were open, they bought us more conventional medical supplies. The owners went above and beyond. And all the staff were incredibly friendly and kept politely enquiring as to my recovery - as well as being considerate about my having to eat standing at the bar, rather than sitting at a table. Our only wish is that there had been a few more local options on the menu. Everything is good, but very western. Even when we tried to arrange local food on a day trip out, something got lost in the chain of people involved and we missed out. However, we do understand that the (new) owners are looking to change that. They already provide guests with local kava tastings. The pool is somewhat basic and a little away from the sea. But then you have the sea anyway, so we weren't using it in any case. More generally, the place is immaculate, both inside and throughout in the grounds. Would score Aore Island Resort higher if we could!

Aore Island Resort is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the bungalows are spacious, airy and clean with great views.

We stayed from 19/7/15 and found that the resort was very nice and clean but the food was average with staff needing more training
