Great location in the heart of Vila. Shops, Markets and everything close by. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Buffet breakfast was great with a chef on duty to cook your eggs/ omelet ect. was a pleasure having breakfast over the water every morning. We stayed on the 5th floor and the view over the port and Iririki island was fantastic...

We dropped in to have lunch and then a play in the casino. Lunch was good, service was good but didn't win in the casino. Its a lovely view in the restaurant, very pleasant to watch out the windows while waiting for your meal

Met up with friends for lunch here while holidaying in Vanuatu and the dining room overlooking the bay and Iririki island was breathtaking! The food was beautiful and the service was great! I didn't find it too expensive at all. The staff make you feel like you're at home and you always felt welcomed. Beautiful spot to stop into whether...

Business trip and stuck in town. Hotel casino without any interest. Staff is welcoming but nothing special. rooms are quite normal with no taste. Swimming pool was not really engaging. I would suggest to look for something different except if you don't have time.

Reviewed 15 September 2016

We stayed here for one night before going to Tanna island and it was the perfect introduction to Port Vila. The location is right in front of main street which means the local markets and shops are a very short walk. The staff were incredibly friendly - more so than any other place we stayed at in Vanuatu. The breakfast...

Sunday lunch was recommended to my wife and by our son who spends a lot of time in Vanuatu. Whilst The Grand has a reputation for up market accommodation and accompanying upmarket prices, the Sunday Lunch was very reasonably priced . Held in a beautiful airy room with great views of the harbour and Iririki Island, lunch was a very...

Ideally located in the centre of port vila and an easy walk to all Quay side bars and resturants. In house tour booking a great help for Vila sight seeing etc. Views over the Bay from your own private balcony are very impressive. Just watching the coming and goings of the ferries and banana boats can kill many hours. Pool...

One of the best places to stay in Port Vila with majestic views from the rooms and public areas across the bay. Friendly staff, reasonable prices and if you don't want to 'rough' it in more rudimentary hotels, this is the place for you. Very good food. A nice pool hanging out towards the port and a casino if you...

Stayed here for a few nights while in Vila. This is a very high end hotel. The room was very clean and quiet. The staff are very well trained and accommodating.

Nice hotel, handily located to centra Vila. Rooms tidy, with good shower & comfortable bed. Great views over Iririki Island. Great pool area, although rain meant we didn't use it. Friendly staff. Bit noisy on the Friday night from the bar next store, especially with an early flight Sat.
