Convenient and clean hotel close to Port Vila
Great service with check in and check out. Very friendly staff around the resort.

Highly recommended
The Melanesian was a fantastic place to stay. Close enough to the action of Port Vila, but far enough away to be peaceful and relaxing. Service by all staff was friendly and prompt. On arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink. The lobby area was comfortable and they had free wifi. Many guests spent time there as a result. There was a tour desk too if required. The room was clean and relatively modern. Australian tv channels and foxtel free of charge. They had a safe in the room too which was helpful. Daily cleaning and changing of towels/ bedding and toiletries was a plus. The bed was comfortable and tidy. Balcony area looked out on the pool which was cleaned each morning. Good temperature and some shade inm the afternoon. Comfy lounges and great drink and food specials each day. Continental brekky was included in our price and we highly recommend the fish-shaped pancakes. Delicious! They also arranged a cheap taxi to the airport. If we went back to vila again we would stay at the melanesian.

Nice room, unprofessional staff
Reception staff were unprofessional talking about using the managers account to get them free alcohol. I wanted to check in early and was told, despite the hotel being empty, that the computer system was down and they couldn't book me into a room, even though I showed them the room I had booked for on the app. A decent run hotel would know which rooms were free of which room type. I thought this showed poor management. There was no communication and I had to ask what was happening when trying to check in. I was given my welcome drink at the reception desk instead of being invited to sit down and relax. I asked for a late checkout with the night receptionist who said this would be fine. At 9:45am I was then receiving calls about me vacating the room. When I informed them that I had organised late check out last night they said they had no record of that and I would have to pay. This charge was then revoked but my rest disturbed. The hotel is clean and I was very happy with the room, just a shame about reception staff!
