    Everything is just wonderful! Amazing view of the ocean, sunrise and sunset. From any angle, every corner of the resort is soooo beautiful. Rooms are all unique, very spacious and clean. Staffs are friendly, John and Silvana look after well of all their guests. They take each guest's situation into account and manage to arrange the best trip for them. It's been a great pleasure to chat with John & Silvana, they make you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Meals are very delicious, fresh and healthy, prices are acceptable. The grilled lobster is amazing! 2 nights are just not enough, Rockwater deserves to stay at least one week! Highly recommend this place, best resort in Tanna!

    1. Greek (Europe) style hotel. 2. The way from airport to the property is bad road. 3. The guide book in the room report room breakfast service but when the local staff bring the breakfast to the guest room, she was blame by her australian owner, this made me upset. 4. Sometimes, you will hear un-polite words from New Caledonian owner talks to his local staff. 5. Kava at this property is very good, must try. 6. Expensive if compare with local hotel but still good price compare with hotel in Port Vila ( Holiday Inn) 7. Use credit card has 4% charge.

    I really can't say enough great things about Rock water resort. It is a tranquil place that gives you a unique experience that is perfect for when you want to steer clear of resorts and find an authentic experience that you share with other guests from all over the globe. Some of the best conversations we've had were with John and Silvana, over our meal. If you're looking for a quiet spot tucked away in an oasis of nature, you've found it!

    John and Silvana are wonderful host. They do everything to help us to have a great time in Tanna. The room and premises are gorgeous and natural. Though the room is a bit warm and dark.

    最高の滞在でした。 オーナーのJohnとSilvana、スタッフ達は私達を家族の様に迎え入れてくれました。 Silvanaは私達が希望する観光を網羅できるようにツアーの手配をしてくれました。 Johnは私達をホテル近隣のシュノーケリングの案内をしてくれました。自分達だけでは怖くて行けなさそうな深い所も案内してくれたので、安心して楽しむ事ができました。ホテル近くの海の中は、沢山の魚、珊瑚礁、驚くほどきれいです。是非行ってみて下さい。 レストランのスタッフたちもすごく親切ですし、料理はどれも日本人好みで美味しいです。食事中のスタッフ達との会話も本当に楽しませてくれました。 部屋も清潔でベッドも大きいです。ドライヤーやシャンプーなどのアメニティ、電子ケトル、1人1本の水/日などは備えつけられており、不便する事はありませんでした。 11月でしたがエアコンが無くても夜は涼しく寝苦しい事はありません。 今回は2泊の宿泊でしたが、また訪問したいです。 このrock waterでの滞在は本当に心温まる時間でした。 是非、日本人の方にもこのリゾートを選んでほしいと思い、日本語でレビューしました。 是非訪問前にオーナー達にコンタクトをとりツアーの相談をして下さい。充実の滞在になると思います。(2泊で火山、ヤカル村、青の洞窟、シュノーケリング、全て網羅でき満足でした。) Thanks to John, Silvana and all the staff for their kindness during our stay. I will come back again.
