Coco Beach was just the paradise we were looking for. The Faves (cottages) were beautiful, with comfortable beds and immaculate. We spent our days relaxing,swimming,and kayaking or just sitting on lounges reading. The open air restaurant was wonderful with delicious food.
Our flight was from Melb to Port Villa at “stupid’o’clock” (2:05am arrival) as some have commented on tripadvisor. We booked the transfer from the airport to Iririki and I am glad we did. My eyes nearly popped when I was getting in the wrong side of the van and we were driving on the wrong side of the road. I won’t go into detail of what when thru my head when we approached the 1st roundabout at 2:20am (Tis a lot different than rat race traffic of Melb.). From that moment, we knew that this was going to be the BEST Holiday and suprises everywhere we go.
At 2:30 am, our transfer had arrived at the Iririki dock. 2 Security staff and approx. 4 locals underneath a hut roof were in sight standing around. We were wondering what’s going on? We get out of the Transfer vehicle and security come over…. “ Hull-O… Welcome to Vanuatu. Are you staying on Iririki? (Enters the biggest smile) The Ferry is on the other side, it should not be too long”. He looks across the waterway, then back at us with a big smile, takes 2 steps away from us, wolf whistles across the waterway and calls the ferry in Bislama. We look across and couldn’t see anything. Then a yell back from the ferry man in Bislama, echoing across the water. Security and locals give a giggle as he tells us that the ferry won’t be too long at all and he must have fell asleep. This scene of our welcome is PRICELESS!
We felt SAFE everywhere. Will go back in a heartbeat!

Impressed received a personal welcome from manager and staff. Owner did not hesitate to move me to a quieter bungalow where I was delighted to have access to nearby pool and had own cooking facilities. A beautiful quiet location so was able to get the rest I needed and was also able to complete the study I planned to do during my stay. Great variety of tours available and the restaurant is top class, with warm and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for me. Thomas, the restaurant manager, is to be especially commended for his professionalism and helpfulness.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The staff were lovely, always cheerful and helpful. The location is ideal, right on the beach and only a few minutes taxi/ bus to Port Vila. (Also easy walking distance as we chose one day) . We made good use of the kayaks and hobie cats freely available as well as the pools which are set in great surroundings. We intend going back.
We loved our stay at Erakor. The staff members were wonderful. It is close to Port Vila but far enough to escape the world. The island is just beautiful and the restaurant overlooks the water. I would highly recommend it and we will return when we are in need of a blissful break.
Fatumaru Lodge sits on Fatumaru Bay in Port Vila - about a 15 minute casual walk to town proper. We has a Suite when we stayed so our room had a queen and two singles in separate rooms. In between was a two-vanity bathroom/shower and a separate toilet. The Queen room had bi-fold which opened out to a patio and verandah with a small kitchenette. We were left wanting nothing from our room. The kitchenette had everything we needed (not that we cooked) but included a fridge, microwave, cooktop and all the crockery and cutlery we needed.
The pool was just a stone's throw from our room (towels supplied) and the walk to the beach was only 1 minute. If you were staying in a single room, the were right on the beach themselves.
We kayaked (free) and swam in the pool and lay ion the hammocks - perfect!
The staff were friendly and welcoming and never interfered or got in the way. Once again - perfect.
