1. Greek (Europe) style hotel. 2. The way from airport to the property is bad road. 3. The guide book in the room report room breakfast service but when the local staff bring the breakfast to the guest room, she was blame by her australian owner, this made me upset. 4. Sometimes, you will hear un-polite words from New Caledonian owner talks to his local staff. 5. Kava at this property is very good, must try. 6. Expensive if compare with local hotel but still good price compare with hotel in Port Vila ( Holiday Inn) 7. Use credit card has 4% charge.
