We just spent 5 nights at Poppy's, as a family of 4 adults (mum,dad and 2x adult children) we had a 2x bedroom unit with a balcony over looking the pool with lagoon views. Poppy's is well located, being only a 10 minute walk to Port Vila or a 1500 vuv (approx $17.00)return taxi trip, The rooms were very clean,...

The accomodation was large, comfortable and well furnished. Much more importantly the staff were very helpful, friendly and fantastic with the kids - customer service was their first priority. The 3 pools are well maintained and kids loved the family pool, kayaks available for use on the lagoon and nice buffet breakfast available from 7:30. If the step drive way...

Spent 5 nights at Poppy's and would not go back. Stayed in a studio. All studios are 46 steep uneven steps from the restaurant, pools and reception. Studios 20-25 actually have 62 stairs. Despite previously reading about the studios being high to catch the breezes is certainly not what we experienced. No air conditioning, no breezes ... a ceiling fan...

Dear Chardygal, I am sorry to hear that you did not have a good experience at Poppys. We certainly do not hide the fact that our studio rooms are located high in the resort. We find that most people enjoy the views and the peaceful setting away from the hustle of the main reception area. I have made note of...

Dear Chrisatholywell, Thank you for taking the time to review Poppys. It sounds like you had a great time at Poppys!

Recently stayed at this "resort" in February,2017. Disappointed to find no air conditioning in room. Had ceiling fan which only worked at one speed. The grounds are beautiful and the indigenous staff couldn't do enough for us. It's a pity the European manager didn't take a leaf out of their book. He was rude, arrogant and had absolutely no personality....

Getting away from it all in Vanuatu can be a little difficult when there are thousands of other tourists trying to do the same thing. Fortunately, Poppy's is a little further out from the action, allowing you to really escape from it all. Though it is a little further out, all that Port Vila has to offer is accessible by...
