    I loved this place it was absolutely heaven! I love that all the water activities were free and you could just go grab a kayak snorkel gear or SUP board anytime and the free bikes I just loved. The staff were also extremely friendly everyone calling you by name it was just really special :) also if for some reason on your trip you need wifi it is very good and works really well ...had to hand in a uni assignment while I was there and I was worried about being able to do it but sure enough the wifi was was really good

    A beautiful location and very sympathetic to the natural environment. The hosts and staff at those resort are attentive to every need and add make one feel totally "at home". The resort rooms step on to the sand so it is an amazing experience. Santo is a naturally beautiful island and the Barrier Beach Resort is a wonderful place to base your trip here

    I'm not typically compelled to write reviews but Julie & her team are something else. My wife and I went here on our honeymoon and their team was so amazing holding my hand through a myriad errors (thanks Expedia for those btw..). Communication was second to none with these guys and it's the sort of place you would happily put a rubber stamp of approval on with your name on it to friends and family... in fact, we're starting to plan the next trip now... Go here if you want serenity, beautiful beaches (I dont think the photos really do this place justice, its better when you get there), lovely service, good food, helpful local advice and an all round awesome island resort break. thank you guys.

    Barrier Beach Resort was AMAZING -

    We absolutely loved our 6 night stay at Barrier Beach Resort!! Julie, Calvin and all the staff (including Christine, Emmy, Rocky) are all so lovely and accommodating. The resort is large and sits on a private beach, which was absolutely stunning (never seen such turquoise water in real life). Snorkelling was amazing (so many fish! including Nemo clown fishes), standup paddle boards and kayaks were plentiful. They provide ample snorkel gear and beach towels to use, so no need to bring your own. We stayed in Fare 14 with the plunge pool. The room was really spacious, the bed super comfortable, and has everything you need. Wifi was very good in the room and throughout the resort. I booked in for a one hour massage at the on-site day spa and Jessica was amazing! The restaurant has good variety and rotating daily specials which was nice. Food does take a while to come out (everything made to order), but that is pretty standard across every place in Santo. We had an early flight to catch upon check out, and they really looked after us by providing breakfast for us to keep in our room the night before, which was thoughtful. The only minor thing I could have done with was a line to dry our swimwear on our patio. They have a large rack in the bathroom but things dry slower inside than outside. Otherwise no faults at all, Barrier Beach Resort was amazing and we had to most relaxing and fun time there. It was totally worth the money to stay here and be pampered!

    Amazing Place!

    Stayed in a beachfront villa for 5 nights. Perfect location! Step straight out the door onto your own private deck with a beautiful view of the ocean. Restaurant food was excellent quality, staff super friendly and helpful. Would recommend to purchase alcohol and snacks to keep in your fridge as the food is on the pricier side.

    This was mine and my partners first holiday together, and our first time in Vanuatu. Initially we were really nervous as this was also our first holiday we organised ourselves. The staff were so accommodating. We arrived past middnight due to delayed flights and Julie ensured we were still going to be picked up by the complimentary shuttle bus- and our driver was extremely friendly and helpful. Upon arrival at some crazy hour of the morning, we were greeted by Julie and Calvin who showed us to our rooms and briefly informed us of where everything was. Of course we slept in the next morning but to our surprise we found the complimentary breakfast still available (best cocktails at resort restaurant, nice food) All of the staff were very friendly and every morning greeted us with a smile and friendly conversation. Catherine was extremely helpful in organising tours for us to and from our resort, booking taxis, and ensuring we knew our way around the resort and what was outside of the resort for us to explore- there were free bicycles to use to ride to places near by like the Riri bluehole and the Oceanic restaurant. Julie and Calvin offered a room upgrade as the air conditioning wasn't working in the first Villa. The upgrade was amazing with everything that was offered from the other Villa but larger space and open view of the water- it was so perfect my partner proposed on the beach at the resort! :) We loved our stay and the people of Vanuatu. Highly recommended. Will be back

    It was mine and my partners first holiday together and first holiday without help to organise, we were a blindly nervous however the staff at Barrier Beach resort were so accommodating! Our flights were delayed, having us arrive way past midnight. Julie ensured we still had transport from the airport to the resort and as we arrived into the early hours of that morning, Julie and Calvin were there to greet us and take us to our rooms. Of course we slept in the next morning but to our surprise, the complimentary breakfast was still available. We met such wonderful staff who were very welcoming

    Perfect relaxation spot with everything you need on site! Great service and awesome hosts! Restaurant is a bit pricey for Vanuatu standards, but when you are so secluded from everything, you can't be too picky with food.

    Relaxing beachfront boutique resort

    We stayed for 8 nights and wished we did not have to leave! Calvin and Julie make great effort to get to know their guests and check in every day to ensure everything is as you had hoped for. Staff are super friendly, remember your name and your previous orders. Food was delicious, home cooked fresh bread and muffins, fresh tropical fruit plate and juices in the morning while you look out from the restaurant to the azure blue waters of Vanuatu. Excellent house reef for snorkeling. They arrange trips for you without any hassle. We stayed in Vila five which is 1 step away from the water at high tide. If you like the sound of waves and a breeze then Vila 5 is your place to go, if you are a light sleeper and prefer silence then choose a garden Vila. We could not have wished for a better holiday ! Highly recommended for couples
