We are a family of 4 and stayed in a beach front 2 bedroom Villa. The villa was private and roomy and looked over well kept gardens to the ocean. We chose this resort mainly for its great snorkling off the jetty however during our 4 days there the wind was blowing straight in and the swell was big so...

Spent 7 days at this laid back resort, very roomy 2 bedroom with all the conveniences needed to be self contained aside from no music or docking facility. All chalets are separate and well spread around with trees and shrubs to ensure shade and privacy not normally seen in resorts. Still have good views of the sea even back in...

We had visited Vanuatu in 2013, staying at Holiday Inn and actually had a fantastic time, but wanted something with a little more personality this time around and Island Magic so delivered. I cant believe how big the bungalows are - there was only the 3 of us (me, my husband and my 4 year old) but it was great...

We loved our little bungalow. It was quiet and peaceful with a lovely spacious feel to it. It was well equipped and it was great to have a washing machine. I'm glad we had a rental car as it was a fair distance (on a bumpy road) to a supermarket or market. I went snorkelling on three occasions with varying...

Stunning ocean views. Very nice accommodation. Very peaceful and quiet location. Very handy to local attractions. Was nice to be able to cook our own meals from local produce bought from the markets. The BBQ facilities both by the pool and on the decking over looking the ocean are very good. The pool was lovely and not too big, many...

The Bungalow was very good. Very clean. The managers were very proactive and very helpful in organising things. The views were stunning. There are no restaurants within the facility so you have to shop and cook if you are having meals. Internet was there but not in all places. Overall a very pleasant stay. Very enjoyable. will stay there again...

When it comes to accommodation in Port Vila, this is going to be our favourite place from now on and we will come here again on our next visit. Island Magic Resort ticks all the boxes: 1) Resort-style accommodation without the resort-kind of clientele. No rowdy crowds while we were there, in fact, we had the whole place to ourselves!...
