Good location short walk to town for better food or buses easy to catch at the front gate. Getting to the front gate is a very steep uneven driveway... More

We stayed 6 nights at Poppys. Lovely place and wonderful staff/facilities. The complex is a nice small family run resort, quiet and discrete. There is a nice mix of units to suit both the family size, view and budget. You can walk into Port Villa in around 15-20 minutes. Nothing is too much bother for the staff who go out... More

Overall I enjoyed my stay at Poppy's and would recommend it to first time visitors to Vila. The staff were friendly and will happily provide advice and arrange tours for you.
