Fabulous 8.8 From 29 reviews

Fair 4.0
No joy
Vanuatu is a poor country and sure, these bungalows are luxury, be it a bit run down. However, hospitality does not cost anything, and the way this place is run is unwelcoming and cheap. It has a negative and cold atmosphere. It did not spark joy.

Very good 8.0
Boutique self contained resort on reef waterfront
Comfortable and spacious self catering 2 bedroom bungalow on the water. All staff friendly and as it is a small resort everyone gets to know each other (staff and guests) Good snorkelling right out the front and great restaurant on site. No sandy beach if that’s what you want, but didn’t bother us. 400vt pp each way to town from resort

Exceptional 10.0
Wonderful location for family Vanuatu stay PERFECT
Island Magic was a brilliant - highly recommend it for a family holiday. Our 2 bedroom beachfront bungalow was extremely spacious and had everything we needed. The deck on the beachfront bungalow had the most beautiful views - so easy to sit back, relax and enjoy! The gardens were lovely and made sure all the bungalows were private. The location of the resort was great - Mele is out of the hustle of Vila and close enough to travel in if supplies needed. Our continental breakfast each day was very generous - lovely fresh local fruits, cereal, yoghurt, toast. The onsite restaurant was very nice quality food. Our kids loved the volleyball court. The snorkelling off the jetty was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately it is a bit exposed, so it isn't great if it is too windy, but when conditions are right, we don't think you could find a better spot. The coral is fantastic as were the huge variety and number of fish. It was paradise underwater - we have snorkelled the Great Barrier Reef a few times, but right off the jetty at Island Magic wins hands down! The hotel manager, Gerry and her staff, were very helpful and made sure our stay was a very lovely family experience. Tina at breakfast was very thoughtful and polite and Joe, who kept the gardens looking beautiful, was great fun and helpful. We can't rate this place high enough - we don't usually return to the same place for holidays, but may have to rethink that approach after visiting Island Magic.
