(Just noticed previous review didn’t load properly so doing again).
Our son & I left hubby at home and enjoyed a vacation in Vanuatu this January. We stayed at Poppy’s.
Admittedly, I googled reviews before leaving & was getting a little stressed on the quality of the resort before arrival.
However, our experience was much different to others.
We found the staff, from receptionist, to gardeners & house keeping, ALL friendly, helpful & like part of the extended family. They remember your names from Day 1 & always great you with a huge beautiful smile.
Yes, if you stay in the studios, there is a bit of a walk down/up a stair case to get to the restaurant/car park/main area of the resort. I think we counted 48 steps. If you aren’t good with steps, I suggest you book a room close to the main area when booking. We were fine. The days we had to carry our luggage, the friendly staff took picked us up in a golf cart to help us out.
Our room was perfect to our needs. No issues with water heating/air con & room was clean & looked after well. Bedding was very comfortable. View was awesome!
It’s a small, personal resort. So I guess that’s the big difference. That’s what we loved about it.
If you are looking for all the things a massive 5 star resort offers, rather than a personal relaxing & calm experience, then perhaps Poppy’s is not right for you.
Thank you Poppy’s for treating us so well. From the welcome drink on arrival, relaxing environment (when we weren’t out busily exploring Vanuatu), to the boat tour down the Lagoon, the non-motorised water equipment available, the cultural show and feast - we thought it all was fantastic.
