We booked this location for 2 x nights in Oct as a group of 7. 2 x grand parents, 2 x adults, and 3 kids (Ages 8, 7 and 5). We opted for 3 seperate rooms next to each other and it could not have been a better scenario although I am aware that there is a family type room. The rooms are very adequate and although no aircons were in place, the temperature with the sea breeze was great (our kids used the blankets even). The lodge is low key and immediately relaxing. It is a small-ish resort, at the time filled mainly with couples however our kids were never bored. Between kayaks, swimming in the pool and exploring the rock pools. We did horse riding with Santo Horse Adventures one morning which is highly recommended. The highlight of the property was the incredible food.

Nice location, and nice facilities. However, as you're stranded there for the most part you often need to eat their food. The first meal we had was atrocious, completely stale bun on a burger (like a brick), and a pasta that tasted like they accidentally dropped the whole salt shaker in. However, the meals improved after that, so not sure if they just had someone extremely under-qualified that day.

Food not fresh, seemed leftovers warmed up again, husband sick with it. No fresh coffee for breakfast only tin coffee (but steep rates). Weetbix not fresh. Breakfast bar waitress tried to steal 3$ extra for toast when in fact included in price already. Overheard other customers complain about same issue with same woman. Grounds kept immaculate and clean. Surrounding scenery beaufiful. Noisy, unsupervised local children (looked like children of staff) cleaning runny noses in pool and heard one say to the other "stop peeing in the pool" in Bislama.

Quite remote but fabulous food and staff
Fantastic staff, Delvene, Iris, John and Adam in particular were wonderful, so helpful in every way. The other staff members behind the scenes were also very friendly. This is a remote location with not much else around. We took advantage of booked tours from the resort which introduced us to Santo. The Turtle and Dugong tour was a highlight. Unfortunately for us the weather was not kind.
