A very nice facility that serves nice food, you can have a swim in the deck pool, or just sit there and enjoy the view. Four people in the group, four different styles of breakfast - eggs Benedict, a "giant" breakfast, a mix of sides instead of the actual breakfast dishes on offer, and three component omelet. No prisoners left,...

Excellent hospitality! Welcomed like royalty. Amazing view while drinking my Pina Colada on our balcony. I loved every second and would definitely come back again. Food was tip top with the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. This place was unreal. My favorite time was snorkelling in the lagoons. Thanks guys for a great trip.

Alone or with family, this place is magical. Direct on the beach, with beautiful views, and at walking distance from everything in town, the Chantilly Hotel is in its price range the best place to be in Port Vila. The rooms are confortable and the staff is on top.

The photos and advertising of this property are totally inaccurate. Iron didn't work, towels worn thin and ripped as were the sheets. All of the linen smelled of smoke. Air conditioner iced up and stopped working. Pool was small and dirty. Definitely not value for money.

Friendly, attentive staff with a great atmosphere - candlelit dinner overlooking the lagoon and can hear the water washing ashore. Had the chicken,brie and cranberry burger which was the best burger i've ever had. Dessert was creme brûlée which was also very good! The food was very affordable costing us only 2500VT including a beer each.

We had been recommended to try the breakfast at Chantilly's and our experience did not disappoint, it was excellent. The service was very very good, polite and efficient. Each of the meals was very well presented and a delight to dine on. We will dine there again.

Looking for a decent coffee, good service and an old-school big breakfast? Chantillys is the place. Like many places in Port Vila, it took a hit from cyclone Pam last year. The beautiful jetty has not been rebuilt and was a place for a sunset cocktail or a candle-lit dinner. Bright, open and designed to get sea views and breezes-it...

We stayed at Chantillys on the last night of our trip, due mainly to proximity of airport and early departure. No problems with overall condition of room, staff friendly. However we awoke to a strange sound in our room to find a rat eating a banana that had been provided with our breakfast (needless to say breakfast not eaten). My...

We enjoyed a very good dinner at this venue, All dishes were tastefully arranged and the restaurant was very quiet. Quality of the meal was excellent, Is probably one of the best restaurants in Port Vila.

I decided to stay at Chantilly's due to its close proximity to Port Vila Township and the rooms with balconies overlooking the harbour. It's also got a nice beach bar right next door where you can lounge on beanbags or chairs in the sand and sip on nice cocktails and nibbles. The breakfast is also quite good, we just had...
