My family of 4 stayed at Island Magic for 7 days in October 2013. I have two teenaged boys one who has Autism and so this place was perfect for us. As it was quiet and had lots of space for us to move about. I agree with Countrykids70 as we where there the same time! Our favourite day trip...

We have just returned from a 12 day stay in Vanuatu, and we were lucky to have spent 7 of them at this beautiful accommodation. The bungalows are spacious, clean and well appointed for travellers who like the convenience of being able to cater for themselves. We travelled with two children and they loved having their own bathroom, eating breakfast...

This property was recommended by a friend and it certainly lived up to it's reputation! Peaceful setting with roomy bungalow accommodation was perfect for two couples or a family group. It is a bus ride to town which can take some time depending on traffic conditions and adds to the cost of the stay. However, we felt this minor difficulty...

My friend and I spent our last five days at island magic resort we both wished we'd stayed the whole holiday here, the accomodation, the location, the peace, it was perfect! Recommend this resort to holiday makers wanting peace and quiet with just a short bus ride to bustling Port Vila!

We did our homework and found it near to exactly as we wanted and expected. Lovely spot and very relaxing. Sat on the verandah had a wine or beer and looked out to the blue water. Went to sleep and woke up to the sound of waves laping up against the corals etc. The staff were all great and did...

I read all the reviews and chose Island Magic for a quiet get away for 2. All the reviews looked great and as it was first time in Vanuatu we researched quite well and thought this sounded wonderful. We were very disappointed. The 'resort' has no facilities, the nearest shop is a 15 minute drive away and the only nearby...

David B, Manager at Island Magic Resort, responded to this review

A great shame Summer Suzie was disappointed with her stay at Island Magic Resort. We strive to present Island Magic exactly as it is on our website and also our wholesalers who all have direct links to our website. We make a point of explaining we are a fully self contained apartment resort and there is no restaurant on site....

We have just had a week at Island Magic and could not recommend it enough. The units are clean spacious,private and easily accommodated our booking for 2 couples. Having a bathroom for each room makes a big difference. It is easy to snorkel and relax there for the day or come back to some comfort after a day trip.Hot showers,...

This resort is located out of town which is perfect for a relaxing holiday.
