Free Wifi, Great View, Close to New Mall
One of the main reason why I booked was free wifi and a great view and that what I got! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The view from the room was amazing. Location is just above the New mall. The heating. When you turn hot water on it sparks up the heating electrical box and thats a bit scary especially beacuse its located in the bathroom right next to the shower.

Great view of the bay, good location
Given the recent cyclone earlier this year and damages caused I was not aware of the building works going on at the hotel prior to my stay however there is plenty to do and see rather than sitting in the room all day so this was not an issue. The staff and owner were very accommodating and certainly made it a very pleasant break and I look forward to returning again soon.

A great base
A friend and I stayed here for a week. The room was comfy, the view spectacular, and the internet worked (we had been a bit worried as we had read a few reviews where the internet had not been working about a month ago, although I can't guarantee that it will work in the other rooms since we were right next to the office). It was a great base as it was only a short walk to the centre of Port Vila (about 10 mins) and having a kitchenette and access to a laundry was just what we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Ocean View with Authentic Thai Restaurant on site
I had some issues first night but all of the rectified next day. I has an ocean view but bit noisy because of one way hilly street with speeding cars. As the traffic volume is very low it was not a serious problem. The property has an on-site Thai restaurant serving real authentic Thai food 7 days week for lunch and dinner. The room has a full kitchen and you can cook 3 meals a day if preferred.

An experience to remember
We arrived at 11.30 pm at night at the Ocean View Apartments by taxi which was arranged but no key was available. The taxi driver contacted the owner who told him to take us to the Tropicana resort for the night. I was worried about this but was pleased to see that the temporary accomodation was lovely. We were taken to the Ocean View Apartments in the morning and was please with the beautiful view we had from our balcony being on the 3rd floor.
