Reviewed 31 July 2016

When we booked our Quest stay on-line, any questions we had were answered straight away by return emails. However from the time of booking and arriving the managers had changed hands, with Allan and Maggie moving on. Our accommodation was the standard rooms and everything was neat, tidy and clean. The only disappointment was the dated kitchen equipment which certainly...

The owner "forgot' to arrange transfers for us. Despite email confirmation, he forgot, never apologised, feedback we were given was he forgot as he was busy arranging his own holiday to Aus at the time. Luckily we had been to Vanuatu before but if it was somebdy else, they would have been stranded at a foreign airport with no idea...

Hi Lydia and thank you for your review. In response to your comments I would like to clarify a few errors: You arrived the day after myself and my family all flew out to Australia for 12 days holiday. Our ni-vanuatu staff are very kind and helpful, but English is their second language. They are also quite sensitive and do...

When I think of Quest I think of that famous Tina Turner song - "Simply the best!". I stayed at Quest in 2015 and it was: great value for money (very important for this traveller); great facilities; close to town; very clean and safe; and most importantly, the Quest team were helpful friendly and fun. I loved happy hour and...

After staying at Quest apts for 3 weeks, we couldn't imagine how there could be any bad reviews!! We enjoyed our stay so much, we will definitely stay at Quest again if we ever get the opportunity to return to Vanuatu!! First, the little touch of fresh flowers displayed all through the apartment at arrival was so welcoming and a...

We stayed in the very comfortable 2 bedroom premier apartment with lagoon views. It had everything we needed for being self contained. Breakfast supplies were provided and the room was cleaned daily. The hosts, Alan and Maggie, were very friendly and we felt right at home with them. They gave us local information and tips for an enjoyable experience. Their...

My partner and I stayed in a Premier Studio Apartment at Quest Apartments for our first stop in Vanuatu for 4 nights. The apartment was clean and had all the facilities we needed. We were also supplied with Cornflakes, bread, jam, butter, milk, juice, coffee satchets and tea bags. Would be perfect for a long stay as well, especially if...

My family and I stayed here pretty much straight after the cyclone. We have a house in Port Vila and we went back to check the damage. We chose Quest because of its proximity to town and because it is fully self contained. Quest was one of the few places in town not to sustain any bad damage. For us...

Hi Miss Rusty and family It was so great to have you all here during cyclone time. I am glad to hear all was to your standard and our kitchens allowing self catering can really save you big bucks. So many of our guests comment on our Real Value for Money. Next time come and stay during an anniversary and...

Very disappointed...... After reading all the great reviews, we were totally shocked and disappointed. We were booked in for 4 weeks but could only put up with 3. This is a very neglected place in more ways than one. I have never been in a smaller bathroom, and that concided of a 900mm 900mm shower a sink and toilet. Not...

Hi didspng, "Terrible" What a surprise to read your review! I would like to state that at NO stage did you or your partner speak to us or our staff about your dislikes or concerns. In apartments, bathrooms and other rooms are sometimes smaller than in houses that you would have been used to. Our showers are industry standard size...

It was explained to me that the heart shaped pool was not for romance but for a caring vision. I, like many travellers, arrived stressed, and left 27 days later, with a calm peaceful feeling of love in my heart. Perhaps it was the daily laps in the pool that did it. Or, perhaps it was the time between 5...

Been here three times now. Alan and Maggie are so friendly and helpful. I return as the Apartments are very very clean and great value for money. Staff are just wonderful, Jacinta is gorgeous as are all the staff. Just far away from town for chill tin but easily accessible. No complaints and will be there again without doubt.
