Having travelled a lot for both business and pleasure I found the Holiday Inn to be up there with the best that the South Pacific Islands have to offer. I read a lot of reviews prior to travelling, some negative about the Holiday Inn and all I can say is that some people are very hard to please. My wife...

Great location for a resort. Wonderful pool for the kids, great activities and fantastic kids club(kids 10 and 5). You can take the kayaks around the canals of the lagoon and have a look around.

Location to the Water and to Port Vila was the main attraction for choosing the Holiday Inn, arrival was seamless and very welcoming, the room #251 over looking the pool area and beach was just perfect, easy access to all facilities.

My husband and I chose to stay here due to the fact the resort had so much space (you can join the other guests or go off somewhere quiet) and that there were catamarans, kayaks etc to take out on the water. We also read the breakfast buffet was really good (true!). We stayed in an overwater villa (#407) and...

We stayed for 8 nights at the end of October and had a very relaxing time. As we are a middle age couple I can see what others have said about this resort probably aimed more at families.
