The apartments were spacious and comfortable. Loved the large verandah and the cool breeze that flowed through the place. They organised transfers that were to and from the bungalow, and Gerry checks to make sure you have what you need and goes out of her way to help organise day trips, breakfasts etc. I had a wonderful time in Vanuatu with a self contained apartment helping to keep the food bill down.
The dirt road and distance from Port Vila caused a few drivers to try to charge more than they should. Also the coast is too rough to snorkel whenever you'd like. There is a smell in the cupboards I didn't like, it is probably just humidity caused as they were clean.
Island Magic was the perfect location for relaxing and rest. The location has it's pros and cons. It is 20 minutes from town and the last 5 minutes is along a 2km dirt road which was very bumpy until it was graded in the last 2 days. But, it is away from all the hustle and bustle and right by the water (not the lagoon) and if the wind is down the snorkelling out the front of the jetty is pretty good (warning the wind is down early in the morning, so be prepared to get up around 6am). Gerry is a great manager who is great with the guests and only too happy to help with anything. The restaurant is better than the average resort hotel with many many tasty dishes and one Sunday we had the Indonesian Feast which was amazing. If you don't hire a car be prepared to pay a driver 400 vatu each person, but Nono is the most beautiful person, a great driver and is worth every cent and more. He is ever reliable too which is important. He got up at 4am to drive us to the airport. Also being self contained you save on eating out, which is not as cheap as you would expect, basically being around Aussie prices.
20 minute ride to town was less than ideal but it also had it's advantages. You just have to factor that into the cost. We had two kids who we ended up staying at home (which was fine by them) to cut down the costs. Also the wifi was average at best but that is not uncommon in Vanuatu. My wife was happy as it kept me and the kids off the net.
Coral reef was pretty good. You can hear the waves right from your Boongala. Fully equipped kitchen
All kitchen cabinets is old and smiley. Needs renovation. When we checked in the shower heads in both bathrooms was leaking everywhere, but been chenged then we completed.
Quiet location on a marine reserve section of the harbour. Well kept gardens and staff very friendly
Breakfast was great. Location was exceptional.
Make sure the fans work properly and plenty of toilet paper. Everything else was great.
