Stayed for 1 week in 2 bedroom apartment. Quiet place which is what we wanted after a busy year. Ester delightful. Runs on Island time but that's why we went to Vanuatu... living village on the other side of the lagoon so felt like we were experiencing Vanuatu life more rather than staying in a larger establishment. Shower cold sometimes... More

No physical Windows in the rooms only wooden shutters which need to be pulled down constantly due to amount of mosquitoes in the area, Rooms are one third of the size advertisered on the webpage and beach is made of concrete.

What a wonderfully warm welcome by Esther!!! We were sent to Tropicana by Air Vanuatu when they cancelled our departing flight. Just the one night stay this time. The Teouma Prawns prepared by chef Alick were amazing. The decor in the rooms is simple but elegant, with a small kitchenette, air conditioning, ceiling fan and tv. The bedside lamps are... More

Can't say enough about the friendly staff who were always friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for around a week recently. This style of accommodation suited us because we preferred having a place to base ourselves that gives us the freedom to prepare our own meals in our room. The room was well appointed with all the essentials to make our stay comfortable. There are some of the trimmings of a more typical... More

We stayed 7 days and spent most of our time at the Resort. The staff were wonderful especially Esther and Sheila. The room very spacious with great balcony overlooking the lagoon. Tropicana is a little way out of town but worth the 10 minute trip. Supermarket 5 minute walk. A wonderful relaxing holiday. Thank you Tropicana x

We loved staying at the Tropicana! The staff were wonderful and very friendly, and very helpful with information about getting around town. The rooms were awesome, so clean and a great view. We are at the restaurant every day, the food was amazing and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back!

I actually liked this hotel. It was average priced compared to Vanuatu standards. Vanuatu is generally an expensive place with a decent meal costing around $25.00 fijian dollars. The best part about the hotel was it's restaurant which was kind of over the sea. It is beautiful to sit and eat here. The breakfast is affordable. There was a small... More

Location is conveniently near town and was always easy to get a bus. The self contained rooms have everything needed but it was the friendly staff that made this place a joy to stay at. The manager Flora was always so helpful at anytime we needed her for anything and Esther at the restaurant was exactly what you would expect... More
