We stayed at Mangoes and so had many meals here, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. All the meals were good, so consistency was achieved. Service was friendly and reasonably swift (remembering it’s not super fast anywhere in Vanuatu). The coffee was ok, not the best but also not the worst in Vila. They could improve by staff coming back to offer more water (have to ask multiple times to get water in most places) and checking if you’d like another drink or dessert, etc. Overall happy with the meals and the service. It’s average ambience and a little too dark when there is rain (I.e. the mood lighting is too dark for dark days).

This is my favourite place to stay while in Port Vila. Right on the waterfront, it is relatively quiet, very comfortable and has an excellent restaurant on site.

We stayed here for five nights. The staff here are beyond amazing! So helpful and pleasant. Had dinner one night and it was really yummy. The light breakfast was totally sufficient too. Get the private plunge pool room, you’ll be surprised how often you use it. If you have a late flight ask for a late checkout - if they can they will give you a really late checkout which is sooo handy. One thing we loved was we could walk/bus into town for a bit and then escape to Mangoes when we wanted too. So best of both worlds.

We stayed at the Mangoes Resort on our visit to Port Vila and used the services of the restaurant and bar during the stay. The happy hour drinks are fantastic with the staff delivering your order to the main pool if required. The restaurant also serves breakfast and while it is simple it is done well and is a great way to start the day. The restaurant itself is nice and breezy and as everywhere in Port Vila, the staff are happy and friendly.

We booked a week in a "garden view" bungalow through Expedia, and got a good rate in January, with breakfast included. Air conditioning was extra, and we decided to try and survive without it. While we could sit on our front porch and enjoy the sounds of the birds and the sight of the greenery and some flowers, we could not see the lagoon. We agreed that the best feature of the resort was the restaurant. The Bengladeshi chef was excellent, and actually asked us if there was any particular dish that he could prepare for us. We tried many different dishes at lunchtime and dinner, and enjoyed them all, except for the crab, which involved more work and manual labour than we expected. The manager and receptionists were more polite than friendly, but helpful in giving directions to walk into town (about 20 minutes) and to the nearby Holiday Inn, where we could use their business centre (Mangoes, surprisingly, does not have one).
