Here for just 3 days prior to our Tanna trip. Grounds were very well kept and nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and they have made a fairly nice beach area which you can lounge on under the shade of a large tree, and provides a nice launching area for the canoes. But I found the water very murky...

Our family of six stayed in a lagoon view apartment. Comfortable accommodation with a full size kitchen which was perfect when you need to prepare all meals for a child with anaphalaxis. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Included breakfast was simple but adequate. Lovely fresh fruit. We enjoyed the canoes that were provided free of charge. My grandchildren played...

Stayed at Poppy's for 9 nights in a 2 bedroom family apartment. We loved the apartment and it had a beautiful view over the lagoon and children's pool area. The resort provided kayaks that the children used daily as welll as reef shoes and life jackets that we could use anytime. The apartments were clean and very comfortable. The staff...

We stayed in the room in the picture for 8 nights. While large enough for a family with teenagers the rooms are tired and need attention. The shower / toilet seats were mouldy, the double bed awful (like sleeping on a trampoline) and if you walked on the floors without socks or thongs your feet were filthy in no time....
