Location's great, particularly for business trips. Lovely outlook, over the bay. Close to town, with nearby restaurants. The staff are very friendly and helpful. But the hotel is looking tired, past its prime. Could do with a renovation.

This place was fabulous. Our room was spacious and had an amazing ocean view, was very clean and the amenities exceeded our expectations. The restaurant bar offered a nice place to eat or drink in the comfort of the ocean view. The food was delicious and service good. It was great to wonder down at anytime during the day to...

I am here for work and been staying for one week. The rooms are spacious and clean - but more importantly the food here is amazing, some of the best in the Pacific. The service staff at the restaurant need training - but the rest of my experience has been excellent.

First off, let me tell you that the staff at this place are genuinely wonderful and very hard working. It is no reflection on them that Chantilly's - once a good place to stay in Port Vila is running down in a big way, There seems to be a general lack of care about its management. The restaurant once full...

We stayed at Chantilly's for 5 nights. We had a 1 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor with a magnificent water view. The space in the room was very generous, with full kitchen and a balcony. Air conditioning was great, as this time of the year temperatures go from 26 to 33ºC, but the humidity levels got above 85%. The...

A very nice facility that serves nice food, you can have a swim in the deck pool, or just sit there and enjoy the view. Four people in the group, four different styles of breakfast - eggs Benedict, a "giant" breakfast, a mix of sides instead of the actual breakfast dishes on offer, and three component omelet. No prisoners left,...

Excellent hospitality! Welcomed like royalty. Amazing view while drinking my Pina Colada on our balcony. I loved every second and would definitely come back again. Food was tip top with the freshest seafood I've ever tasted. This place was unreal. My favorite time was snorkelling in the lagoons. Thanks guys for a great trip.

Alone or with family, this place is magical. Direct on the beach, with beautiful views, and at walking distance from everything in town, the Chantilly Hotel is in its price range the best place to be in Port Vila. The rooms are confortable and the staff is on top.

The photos and advertising of this property are totally inaccurate. Iron didn't work, towels worn thin and ripped as were the sheets. All of the linen smelled of smoke. Air conditioner iced up and stopped working. Pool was small and dirty. Definitely not value for money.
