While the public area (pool etc) looks recently refurbished and is very nice, you could not say the same for room 302 which we stayed in on Saturday 20th June. We could not lock the door to our room, as the lock was out of alignment with the wall. Two members of staff who also tried, were not able to...

I have just spent four nights at The Espiritu. I was most impressed by the way the manager, Rayman, went out of his way to make my stay most enjoyable. In particular he put a lot of effort into finding me a driver (not easy when there is a cruise ship staying overnight in Luganville) and arranging exciting excursions for...

Booked The Espiritu due to its location in luganville as a base of our adventures in Santo but we got a whole lot more than expected. Firstly don't expect it to be a resort because it isn't and they don't intend it to be. It's a hotel and a damn welcoming one at that. We met Raymond when we arrived...

This was our second visit to Santo and the second stay at the Espiritu. Last year the pool was in the early stages of construction and it was great to return and see the progress made. Rayman, Simon and their wonderful staff treated us like part of the family. All of our tour arrangements were taken care of exactly as...

Stayed here for the day due to our flight with Air Vanuatu being downsized . This left the 4 of us with a full day to fill in before our night flight back to Port Vila. Because we hired a vehicle from The Espiritu we decided to ask if we could stay by their pool for the day. Being the...

How to write this is an issue that has proven difficult. The hotel is undergoing renovations and you can see what they hope to achieve. The renovations do not impede on your visit and are being done wit huge consideration and awareness to guests. The pool area is beautiful, welcoming and relaxing. Breakfast is basic but is adequate. The rooms...

Oh wow! This one has got to be a lesson for every hotelier in how to do a makeover! From the decor in the rooms, to the outdoor lounge and pool with an island of palms...it's all understated perfection. But without a doubt the jewel in the crown is the massice mural of native birds that was painted along a...

I thoroughly enjoyed my 6 night stay at The Espiritu. The hosts, Simon and Rayman, were extremely helpful and welcoming. They booked taxis, tours and car hire. The hotel was clean and at a central location right in the middle of Luganville. The pool was amazing outstanding!! The only downfall is the hotel does not have a restaurant yet as...
