Well-run, Japanese-managed, business hotel with excellent facilities and efficient, helpful staff. Reasonable rates. Location is superb, close to town centre and many restaurants. Rooms large, comfortable with AC. On a Sunday (or any day) if so inclined, you can walk down and take three-minute shuttle ferry to Irikiriki Island and enjoy full resort facilities for token amount. Melanesia Hotel has an excellent travel agency in the lobby.
Second stay in three months. It is just the right distance from the city centre and the staff are exceptional. Better coffe (and much cheaper) than anywhere else in Vanuatu and 99% of Sydney. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

"Lovely location under New Management 1st Sept 2014"
The new manager of 2 weeks met us on arrival and apologised & explained there was a lot of upgrading & refurbishing taking place as new owners had just taken over on 1st Sept 2014. This was evident during the 3 days we stayed there with servicemen going about their business which didn't hinder us at all.
We booked a Harbour View room which was well worth the extra money although they could do with more outdoor furniture. This will probably arrive under new owners. We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere of this small hotel and to be able to enjoy a drink or a meal out over the water and watch cruise ships going in & out the harbour was a real bonus... Very pretty at night. The restaurant service was slow but I'm sure that will improve in time. We used the swimming pool a lot rather than the sea but that was choice.
Possibly a bit cramped for families but OK for couples.
We enjoyed being so close to town.... 5 minutes walk along the waterfront took us to the centre of Port Vila.
Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.
We took our parents here as a surprise for their 50th wedding anniversary, and loved every minute of it! We had two small children with us (2yo and 4yo), and everyone - young and old - just loved our stay. The staff were incredibly helpful and polite, and could not do enough for us. Our parents had an overwater villa which was just beautiful, and they had stairs from their back deck down into the lagoon, and were able to swim from there. A million fish and starfish - it was amazing! The giant swimming pool was great, and there was a large children's pool which the kids loved. The hotel has plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained. Highly recommended!
We stayed at Le Lagon for our 20th wedding anniversary and held a Renewal of Vows Ceremony on the beach at the resort. Our children rated the resort 11.5/10 and you couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces! We will definitely go back.
All staff were extremely friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were happy with our stay. Excellent food and service from the restaurant. Breakfast was included in our stay and we would wake up to plates of fresh fruit, hot cooked breakfast, all cereals and toast. It was amazing. We went into town and shopped most days and found the complimentary shuttle bus very handy. The bus leaves at 10am each morning and returns at 2pm. This cost was also included in our stay.
The rooms were very modern and clean. Staff cleaned our rooms daily. There were outside activities we could do which were at no extra cost such as kayaking, snorkeling, and village tour.
Beautiful pool area and great place for families with young children.
Ended up extending my stay here. A good budget resort for travellers looking for comfort without spending big bucks. I took the single room which is basic but still nice at the same time. Staff are fantastic! Very helpful and friendly
Arrived early and were able to leave luggage whilst room prepared. Stayed 2 nights at start of holiday so we saw town and hired car- chose of 4 hire companies close-by. Atm machine at nearby supermarkets. Great views from the balcony. Felt secure with security man at entrance. Lovely breakfast next to pool. Spent last night at motel before flight home. Breakfast brought to our room. Large unit for 4 - comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. Excellent value.
