We had a 5 night stay recently and while we loved the location, accommodation (especially the open air bathroom), great and varied meals and the cocktails we found management far from helpful. The staff were brilliant and doing the best they could especially Helen, Christina, Richard and the Johns but got little support from the Managers even when it was...

I have to say this is our 3 trip to Oyster Island over the last few years and it has lost its luster. Accommodation is up to the standard we are use to at Oyster but a few things let it down. For example the areas around the bungalows especially when the tide is out need to be cleaned daily....

We enjoyed our stay at Oyster Island and found the owner/managers Nabil/Bev to be extremely helpful. They arranged for us to have champagne and a 2 fabulous cakes on the evening of our wedding anniversary and my husbands birthday which was a lovely surprise. The staff were all attentive and eager to please. If anything they were over staffed given...

We did not stay at Oyster island but rather had an enjoyable experience having lunch and kayaking out to Matevulu blue hole from here. For lunch we ordered a variety of dishes - I personally got the lobster for 2000 VUV and shared a jug of sangria with friends and was truly impressed! The lobster was perfectly cooked, and I...

We stayed at Oyster Private Island for 3 nights. The staff are helpful and very easy to get along with. They have Kayaks and snorkling equipment available free of charge for anyone staying at the resort. You can kayak to the Blue Holes which is a must do. Snorkel around the island where they have 3 plane wrecks just meters...

We stayed for a few days, and really enjoyed our time on Oyster Island. The staff are super-friendly, as is the owner who is around daily. The rooms are pleasant, and the shower has hot water on demand, which is wonderful. The island itself is simple and has a few beaches which you can snorkel from. The highlights are getting...

Place is very good for snorkelling and maybe diving, kayaking to nearby islands or to nearby rivers and blue holes. All that you can do on your own. And yet just a half an hour drive to Luganville and airport, so you don't need to spend lot of time in/out. The island, being quite small, also has some to explore....

A bit of a late review but it sounds like Oyster Island is heading back to where it was. We travelled in February '16 when Brad and Sarah were still resort managers and they blew us away. We visited one day just to have a look and they convinced us to come back the next day so they could take...

We stayed at Oyster Island Resort for 12 nights. From our first sight of the resort we knew that it was perfect for us - the staff were amazing! The room was romantic and we loved the outdoor shower and relaxing on our balcony. The snorkelling was fabulous from Midway beach especially at high tide and the food was exceptional....
